Proverbs 16 - NIV
Proverbs 16 - ESV
Proverbs 16:4 . . .
The LORD works out everything for his own ends—
even the wicked for a day of disaster.
Give God the glory! Fall before the King of heaven! Here are the final and true answers to four of life's greatest questions: What is the origin of things? Why do they exist? Who is the true God? And why does evil exist? This single sentence is worth the weight of your house in gold! Humble yourself before this axiom from heaven and learn wisdom!
Proverbs is of little value, if you stumble here. The beginning of wisdom depends on grasping this proverb (1:7; 9:10). This verse should be one of the first children memorize. Here is the Bible worldview. From this foundation of knowledge, we can reason safely and sanely about other matters of life. If you neglect or reject the truth here, your life will be a nightmare of confusion, and then you will meet an angry God (Ps 7:11; Amos 4:12).

WISDOM PROJECT: For this month, I will supply links to both the NIV and ESV versions of the chapter each day (Feb. 1 = Proverbs 1, etc.) in the post—both of which contain the audio.
And in the month of February a unique feature for the WP will be Commentaries on selected passages/verses from within the chapter for the day. And for the most part, these comments will be from links in the Online Bible Study Resources feature here on the 3 John 8 blog (scroll down in the column to the right to find the links).
Note to Proverbs class participants: this is the place where you should post your application comments for the Daily Proverbs Reading Assignment.
