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.

Adjectives Imagined

(Pro 15:6 KJV)  In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.

The Amplified Bible likes to throw in the translators’ interpretations.  In this chapter I began to notice their comments on “righteous” (6662).  The adjectives they throw in are “uncompromisingly” and “consistently”.  There is no basis in the text but I like the idea from a theological perspective.

We need to learn the difference.  There are some things we can incorporate into our doctrine because they are in the scripture.  There are other ideas we need to handle with care and make it clear that it is our opinion.

So?  Read.  Study.  Share.  Be clear in what you have to say.
