Lazy people will suffer from poverty, like thief stealing away their wealth slowly, and scarcity like armed man (v. God will repay them for their evil deeds by striking them back with disaster so that they will be suddenly destroyed (v. God hates a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, an heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, a false witness that tell lies, and he that sow discord among brethren (v.
It will arouse a husband’s jealous and he may furiously take revenge mercilessly without wanting any compensation. The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish: but he casteth away the substance of the wicked. He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked. In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him: but the desire of the righteous shall be granted.
As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
The way of the LORD is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity. The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness. The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them. The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness. When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust men perisheth. An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered. When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, there is shouting.
By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace. He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it: and he that hateth suretiship is sure. The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward. They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the LORD: but such as are upright in their way are his delight. Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without discretion. There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it.
He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him. He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.
Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner. A man shall not be established by wickedness: but the root of the righteous shall not be moved. A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones. The words of the wicked are to lie in wait for blood: but the mouth of the upright shall deliver them. A man shall be commended according to his wisdom: but he that is of a perverse heart shall be despised.
He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread. A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. He that tilleth his land shall be satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vain persons is void of understanding. The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
There is that speaketh like the piercings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
The righteous is more excellent than his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them. The slothful man roasteth not that which he took in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious. A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence. He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction. The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing: but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat.
Righteousness keepeth him that is upright in the way: but wickedness overthroweth the sinner. There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches. Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase. Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded. Poverty and shame shall be to him that refuseth instruction: but he that regardeth reproof shall be honoured.
The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul: but it is abomination to fools to depart from evil. Much food is in the tillage of the poor: but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment. The righteous eateth to the satisfying of his soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want. He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him. In the mouth of the foolish is a rod of pride: but the lips of the wise shall preserve them. A scorner seeketh wisdom, and findeth it not: but knowledge is easy unto him that understandeth.
Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge. The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.
The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: and a good man shall be satisfied from himself. In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
He that is slow to wrath is of great understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth folly. He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.
Wisdom resteth in the heart of him that hath understanding: but that which is in the midst of fools is made known. The tongue of the wise useth knowledge aright: but the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness. In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.
The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
The way of the wicked is an abomination unto the LORD: but he loveth him that followeth after righteousness. Correction is grievous unto him that forsaketh the way: and he that hateth reproof shall die. Hell and destruction are before the LORD: how much more then the hearts of the children of men? A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
The heart of him that hath understanding seeketh knowledge: but the mouth of fools feedeth on foolishness.
All the days of the afflicted are evil: but he that is of a merry heart hath a continual feast. The way of the slothful man is as an hedge of thorns: but the way of the righteous is made plain. Folly is joy to him that is destitute of wisdom: but a man of understanding walketh uprightly. Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellers they are established.
A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!
The LORD will destroy the house of the proud: but he will establish the border of the widow. The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the LORD: but the words of the pure are pleasant words. The heart of the righteous studieth to answer: but the mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things. He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding.
Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.
It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness. The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud. He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he. The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. Understanding is a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools is folly.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.
A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren.
Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished. A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth.
He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends. The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with. He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD. Wherefore is there a price in the hand of a fool to get wisdom, seeing he hath no heart to it? A man void of understanding striketh hands, and becometh surety in the presence of his friend. He loveth transgression that loveth strife: and he that exalteth his gate seeketh destruction. He that hath a froward heart findeth no good: and he that hath a perverse tongue falleth into mischief. Wisdom is before him that hath understanding; but the eyes of a fool are in the ends of the earth. He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit. Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding.
The words of a man’s mouth are as deep waters, and the wellspring of wisdom as a flowing brook.
The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. He that is first in his own cause seemeth just; but his neighbour cometh and searcheth him.
A brother offended is harder to be won than a strong city: and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.
Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth. Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man is a friend to him that giveth gifts.
The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping. He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; but he that despiseth his ways shall die. He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again. A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver him, yet thou must do it again. A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge. He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach. The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.
The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing. Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.
Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread. It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.
Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman. He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.
An inheritance may be gotten hastily at the beginning; but the end thereof shall not be blessed. It is a snare to the man who devoureth that which is holy, and after vows to make inquiry.(v. The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.
The getting of treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and fro of them that seek death. It is better to dwell in a corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman in a wide house. When the scorner is punished, the simple is made wise: and when the wise is instructed, he receiveth knowledge. The righteous man wisely considereth the house of the wicked: but God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead. He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich. There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up. A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof. The sacrifice of the wicked is abomination: how much more, when he bringeth it with a wicked mind? A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
The eyes of the LORD preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor. The mouth of strange women is a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the LORD shall fall therein. Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. He that oppresseth the poor to increase his riches, and he that giveth to the rich, shall surely come to want. We not make friends with a hot tempered person so that we will not learn their ways and be ensnared (v. We are not to trust in our own cleverness to get rich on earthly wealth, especially those that are obtained hastily.
You should not eat food of a host who begrudged and not generous towards you because he may tell you to eat and drink generously on the outward but he is actually stingy and doesn’t want you to eat his food in his heart (v. We are not to move the boundary stone of the fatherless because God is their defender and he will take up their case against anyone who do so (v. Parents should not withhold discipline from a child but rebuke and punish them whenever they do wrong (v.
If you always fear God, God will provide a future for you so that you don’t have to envy others (v. An adulterous woman is compared to a bandit who lies in wait and multiplies unfaithful men who go to bed with her (v. We should not envy the wicked and be in their company because they are always plotting violence and talk about causing troubles (v.
In the Personal Bible Study section at the end of chapter 6, we are directed to Proverbs 16:3.

Everyone who shares their thoughts on verse chaining in the comments section today will be entered to win our amazing Conference Call Series, which is all about Stepping into God’s Word! I will defiantly be trying #VerseChaining later today but wanted to stop by on my first read through of the Blog and say how awesome Bible Study Skills day is on the BLOG! It’s a great way to see God’s Word weaving itself together Karen I hope you find it useful!
Verse chaining is a great tool when studying a passage that I just don’t seem to get!
Is verse chaining the same as looking up a word in your concordance for related Scriptures? That’s basically the concept behind it yes Verse-Chaining just helps you record those discoveries and link all those verses together to see a bigger picture of what the Lord is teaching you.
I’ve never tried verse chaining, but I am so glad for the Bible study tools and the chance to learn new ways to dig deeper into God’s word! Commit to the Lord your thoughts and your actions and you will succeed (YOU WILL BE BLESSED). To get out of the problem, they should do their best to free themselves from the promise of becoming surety to their neighbor.
Those who hear and follow her moral or spiritual sense will enjoy physical pleasure but actually they are dead spiritually. People who get drunk on wine will become intoxicated, their mind will not be clear and they will see confusing things. This is Sarah Travis, or maybe I should say #ScottishDancer, coming to you from Arlington, Va. Just being in Proverbs 16 triggered a thought about one of the ways I journal. I record dates alongside verses in my Bible. For practice learning to count, we would often complete a dot-to-dot puzzle, connecting the dots to see a picture revealed. We could guess what the result would be when linked them together, but the more complex the picture … the more difficult it was to guess. We can take a verse all by itself and try to guess or discern what message God is communicating.
I have done this for quite a while in my personal devos, but every method is just a bit different.
I love to do verse mapping and this will really help connect verses and fill in my understanding. I never called it verse chaining, but I just said I needed to dig deeper and let Scripture interpret Scripture.
Keep on digging deeper, seeking His truth, praying for His will and you never know what He might reveal to you! It is unwise to indulge in the food on the table without a care because the ruler has the ultimate power in executing any person he wants (v. I have to admit I don’t dance anymore but thank you Melissa and Nicki for the blast from the past in Monday’s video! This week it showed me that God has brought Proverbs 16:9 into my life on the same week for the past four years! Just for fun, we would try to guess what the final picture would be before we connected the dots. Yet unless we connect the verses together, we might miss the beauty of the complete picture God has for us to discover. When we dig deeper by verse chaining, we link verses together by words, phrases or thoughts. I feel like the way the Lord speaks to me or the way I study the Bible, goes through ebbs and flows. Years ago I jotted down several verses that spoke to me in what I thought was a random order. I have the first of the 3 pages completed but need to put it aside now before going on to the final 2 pages in order to really let all I just looked at soak in. After a hard conversation last night with a constant struggle in my life, I quickly reminded myself to not take it personal and breath. I started typing them on a piece of paper to carry with me.I was trying to fit them all on one piece of paper and it hit me full force that they just flowed from one verse to another. God had placed each one there on my paper in an order to help me understand and comfort me.
