Provebs 25 Bible Study: So You're Always Right

A Look Inside

The focus in this scripture starts with earthly kings and ends with your neighbor. The fact that scripture can move from the power of kings to an average person in just a few verses indicates that no man or woman, regardless of stature or assumed power, is more important than any other person. It puts away the "idol" status of those who are seen quite often in the media. They are normal people with specific jobs … so are we!

Break It Down

Kings Of Earth

Proverbs 25:1-3 These are also proverbs of Solomon, which the men of Hezekiah king of Judah copied out. It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.

Verse 1 states that these are proverbs of Solomon that were "copied out."[i] This means that they were copied from other texts instead of coming directly from memory. Does that make this verse any less applicable than all of the others? Even though the 66 books of the Bible have many earthly authors all are the inspired word of God spoken through each man. The answer to the previous question applies to all verses of scripture - it is no less important, regardless of the author or earthly source.

Verse 2 tells us that although God is the possessor of all wisdom, he chooses not to reveal everything to us mere humans all at once. The knowledge of the scriptures is available to all of us if we will search them and have a desire to learn from them.

Let's compare God to our best friends. Do you believe that your best friend tells you everything? Let's give that a realistic "no." Even best friends hold things back from us, whether in spite or out of concern. It is likely that you subscribe to that same approach and don't tell your best friend everything.
