(Proverbs 30:26 KJV) The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
This is another one of those verses that make me scratch my head and go, “What?” It is part of four verses with contrasts. So what is the contrast here?
It can’t be that the “conies” (badgers NASB) (8227a) are hiding. That would not contrast with being un-mighty. Making the rocks a home would signify taking a strong defensive position. This would not be hiding but planning ahead in an area that is not your expertise.
Am I stretching? Sure, I am not Agur, the author of this Proverb. But go with it. We all have weak areas. We have skills or situations that do not play to our strengths. Get into the rocks. Find a way to compensate for you weakness by planning ahead. Position yourself so that you are as strong as possible.
So? We will all find areas that we feel helpless. Plan. Act. Trust. Maybe God will find a way to praise us for our organizational skills.
