Psalm 135:1 – Proverbs 6:35

This section of scripture ends with some of David’s last songs and then moves to his son’s wise teachings.  The Book of Proverbs was written by Solomon (David’s son).  Remember, back in 1 Kings and 2 Chronicles when given the chance to ask for what ever he wants, Solomon asked the Lord for wisdom.  The 1st chapter of Proverbs let’s the reader know that this book is going to be filled with wise sayings and things that will help people, “attain wisdom…understanding…discipline…and live a prudent life.” (Prov. 1:2-3)  Solomon urges us through the pages of this book to, “not be wise in your own eyes.” (Prov. 3:7).  Instead, he says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding (or wisdom); in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Prov. 3:5-6)
