Proverbs 2

Dream entry October 7, 2018

I had a dream that a friend that I haven’t seen in a very long time came up to me and told me she had an affair on her husband. I felt surprised at this information she shared with me. Throughout the dream and as we were walking, I kept asking her why would she do something like that. I just couldn’t understand why she would do something like that or how something like that would happen in her marriage. She answered my questions but I can’t remember what her answers were. Maybe that wasn’t important. We were walking through a market that sold foreign goods. Foods, spices and trinkets.

The Value of Wisdom proverbs 2

My son, if you receive my words,
And treasure my commands within you,
2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom,
And apply your heart to understanding;
3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment,
And lift up your voice for understanding,
4 If you seek her as silver,
And search for her as for hidden treasures;
5 Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
8 He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.And the unfaithful will be uprooted from it.
But the wicked will be cut off from the earth,22
And the blameless will remain in it;
For the upright will dwell in the land,21
the paths of righteousness.toAnd keep
So you may walk in the way of goodness,20
Nor do they regain the paths of life—
None who go to her return,19
And her paths to the dead;
For her house leads down to death,18
And forgets the covenant of her God.
Who forsakes the companion of her youth,17
flatters with her words,whoFrom the seductress
To deliver you from the immoral woman,16
devious in their paths;who areAnd
crooked,areWhose ways 15
delight in the perversity of the wicked;And
Who rejoice in doing evil,14
To walk in the ways of darkness;
From those who leave the paths of uprightness13
From the man who speaks perverse things,
To deliver you from the way of evil,12
Understanding will keep you,
Discretion will preserve you;11
And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,
When wisdom enters your heart,10
