(Proverbs 2:10 KJV) When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
You may have noticed that there is a slight difference between the KJV and NASB. It is in the word beginning this verse. The KJV has “when” (3588) and the NASB has “for” which the reference does not number. Either one is acceptable. The most common translation in the KJV is “because” (460x). This is part of series of if/then statements. This one starts in the previous verse.
In the previous verse it talks about righteousness, justice and equity. All of those would fit into a good political speech. How can you be against justice and equity? Actually it is easy when you have not had a heart transformed by “wisdom” (2451), a heart that grapples with a fear of the Lord, a heart regenerated by grace. If you will pardon a silly comparison, I can never understand what it is like to go through menopause. I will never have the capricious hormones involved. Talk about it sure; understand, never.
So? Rejoice that God has begun the good work in you. If you can’t rejoice then maybe you need to check to see if you have begun the journey.
