(Proverbs 1:1 KJV) The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
The “proverbs” (4912) in this section are attributed to Solomon. We often put all proverbs into an envelope and consider them all the same. When I Googled “proverbs” I got one site that said it had 213 Proverbs that all English speaking people would know. It gave me a chance to pull up a random list of ten. None of them were from the Bible. The first? “Boys will be boys.” Now that is powerful.
Keep in mind that the words we see in the Bible are often used in ways that do not support the truth or teaching found in the Word of God. Just because something is called a proverb does not mean that it contains wisdom.
So? Consider the source. Examine the context. Think about the logical development. Seek truth not trendy.

I think the remainder of that saying goes "and sometimes men will be boys, as well." We've certainly evidence of that in Washington and Hollywood.
I never even thought that the site would edit something as basic as a proverb. You can't trust anything in this day and age.
Grace and peace.
