    What do YOU think these verses mean?

    Good one, Sue ><>

    Wisdom spoken about in the proverbs is wisdom from above, not from personal knowledge, human intellect

    For the second one, I think that what it is saying is that disrespecting your neighbors is a sin and in order to bring joy to other people, one must help out who is in need.

    You're right, Bobby and Lynnette! :-)

    Yes, I could agree with your interpretation of the 2nd verse's meaning

  • Religion -

    As far as verse 1 goes, I believe one is seeking and the other just "got" it, from above, and it brings great joy

    Thank you!
