(Proverbs 1:25 KJV) But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:
Once again the KJV gets my mental juices flowing. It says we have “set at naught” (6544a) the “counsel” (6098) of God. The NASB simply says “neglected.” Both mean the same but the KJV cuts to the heart of the matter.
We are used to the concept of resetting a game or a calculator. Sometimes it is the thing to do. Sometimes it wipes out all that we have done previously. Have you had the experience on your computer? Have you ever deleted a file or an entire folder and suddenly had that sick realization that you did not back it up?
How often have we deleted all of the wisdom and knowledge that God has given to us? And we pay the price.
So? Listen, learn, remember. It makes a difference. Don’t zero out the wisdom that God has given you again and again. That may be the reason that Proverbs repeats things so much.
