(Proverbs 26:2 KJV) As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
The NASB is trying to be contemporary and creative. It talks about a “sparrow” (6833) “flitting” (5110). The simple Hebrew talks about a “bird” “wandering.” So does the KJV. I think the modern translation misses something. “Bird” is a collective word referring to all. “Sparrow” is just one type of bird. So we miss a point by being clever. Whether the curses are general or specific, they miss us.
If we live lives of righteousness we avoid many of the curses of our culture. I have a book I am planning on re-reading called None of These Diseases. I recently came across a updated version and glancing through. They have added the HIV virus, among others. That is a good modern example of a scourge that believers don’t need to worry about.
So? We will face persecution. That is promised. We will not be cursed. That is also promised. Walk in faith and joy.
