The Book of Proverbs


Practical wisdom for living is the concern of the book of Proverbs. We are told that the beginning and essence of wisdom is the fear of the Lord. (1:7, 9:10). Proverbs often contrasts the benefits of seeking wisdom, and the pitfalls of living a fool’s life, and is ideal for sowing wisdom and common sense into the hearts and minds of both the young and old. This is Marquis’ reading of the entire Book of Proverbs from The ESV Bible.
