The introduction (chapters 1–9) of the Proverbs constitutes the youngest unit in the book. It consists of a series of poems or discourses in which a father exhorts his son to acquire wisdom and in which wisdom personified intervenes. These chapters have a more speculative quality than the remainder of the book. They do not treat wisdom simply as a human quality and achievement or as a cultural legacy imparted by teachers and parents; they present it as a universal and abiding reality, transcending the human scene.
Wisdom is the first of God’s works and participated with him in the creation of the world. A constantly debated aspect of this section concerns the identity of “the loose [strange] woman” who is set over against Wisdom.
Take the proverbs of other nations, and we shall find great numbers founded upon selfishness, cunning, pride, injustice, national contempt, and animosities.
The principles of the Proverbs of Solomon are piety, charity, justice, benevolence, and true prudence. Their universal purity proves that they are the word of God.
Without further, let us continue in our section of Proverbs Chapters 12-24, this week, October 19-21-23, 2020. specifically, Chapters 14-15-16, as the Lord wills. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html

Chapter 15 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Part 1 of 2.
w/Notes from the Commentary of Matthew Henry for further insight. 
1 'A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.
2 The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness.
3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life: but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit.
5 A fool despiseth his father's instruction: but he that regardeth reproof is prudent.
6 In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
7 The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
9 The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness.
10 Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die.
11 Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men?
12 A scorner loveth not one that reproveth him: neither will he go unto the wise.
13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.'
Notes: 1-13 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
1 'A right cause will be better pleaded with meekness than with passion. Nothing stirs up anger like grievous words.
2. He that has knowledge, is to use it aright, for the good of others.
3. Secret sins, services, and sorrows, are under God's eye. This speaks comfort to saints, and terror to sinners.
4. A good tongue is healing to wounded consciences, by comforting them; to sin-sick souls, by convincing them; and it reconciles parties at variance.
5. If instruction is despised, reprove men rather than suffer them to go on undisturbed in the way to ruin.
6. The wealth of worldly men increases their fears and suspicions, adds strength to their passions, and renders the fear of death more distressing.
7. We use knowledge aright when we disperse it; but the heart of the foolish has nothing to disperse that is good.
8,9. The wicked put other things in the stead of Christ's atonement, or in the place of holy obedience. Praying graces are his gift, and the work of his Spirit, with which he is well pleased.
10. He that hates reproof shall perish in his sins, since he would not be parted from them.
11. There is nothing that can be hid from the eyes of God, not even man's thoughts.
12. A scorner cannot bear to reflect seriously within his own heart.
13. A gloomy, impatient, unthankful spirit, springing from pride and undue attachment to worldly objects, renders a man uneasy to himself and others.'
Please return with me and Jesus through the Holy Spirit for a 'spot of tea' this afternoon as we continue in Proverbs Chapter 15. Thank you. Amen. Amen. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
