Bible in 90 Days - Day 45

This morning I finished reading Psalms and started Proverbs! The reading covered Psalm 135 through Proverbs 6.

The very last verse of Psalms is used in a more modern praise song.

Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord.
Praise ye the Lord

Psalm 150:6.

I'm very excited to start reading Proverbs, though I know will only be spending several days reading through it. Every time I read through Proverbs, I learn something new. It seems that each verse is packed with wisdom and knowledge.

The proverbs of Solomon
the son of David, king of Israel;

To know wisdom and instruction;
to perceive the words of understanding;

To receive the instruction of wisdom,
justice, and judgment, and equity;

To give subtlety to the simple,
to the young man knowledge and discretion.

A wise man will hear, and will increase learning;
and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:

To understand a proverb, and the interpretation;
the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge:
but fools despise wisdom and instruction

Proverbs 1:1-7.

I want to be one who has the fear of the Lord! I want to hear and increase learning.
