An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Proud and Proud

(Pro 21:24 KJV) Proud and haughty scorner is his name, who dealeth in proud wrath.

All is summed up in “insolent pride” (2087) of the NASB or the “proud wrath” of the KJV.  There is something going on here at a level I cannot discover.  The KJV tools tell me there are two Hebrew words, “proud” (2087) and “wrath” (5678).  The NASB has 2087 twice even though the translation seems to follow the KJV.  Did the NASB translators bow to the traditional translation? 

Either way pride is a problem.  The modifiers help us to see the difference between such things as being proud of your family and being self centered to the point of attacking everything else.

So?  Humility and an awareness of our dependence on God are always important.
