Proverbs 1:8

The Bible talks a lot about hearing and listening, and very frequently it links wisdom with those that listen, and credits discernment to those that hear. Scripture encourages us to have ears to hear, and calls upon each one of us to pay attention to what the Spirit says to the churches. It reminds us that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of the Lord. It warns of the dangers of being blind to the truth and deaf to God’s word

Proverbs 1:8(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

The Bible talks a lot about hearing and listening, and very frequently it links wisdom with those that listen, and credits discernment to those that hear. Scripture encourages us to have ears to hear, and calls upon each one of us to pay attention to what the Spirit says to the churches. It reminds us that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of the Lord. It warns of the dangers of being blind to the truth and deaf to God’s word

Those that pay attention to the words of Scripture and give heed to advice from godly mentors, are described as wise. Those that have a teachable spirit, and are endowed with understanding, are the men and women who learn godly wisdom and gain understanding. They are the one that know how to apply the knowledge they have been taught. They are the ones who respond to the still small voice of the Lord.

God in His own wisdom and grace set each one of us in families, and expects children to be taught the things of God from infancy.. by their parents. Children are expected to learn how to live godly lives, in their home environment. And throughout the early chapters of Proverbs, we discover the great king Solomon giving advice to his own son. Hear your father’s instruction my son, is king Solomon’s wise advice to his own offspring, and do not forsake your mother’s teaching.

In Israel’s early days God instructed parents to teach their children to commit the word of God to memory, to meditate on scripture day and night and to do all that is written, within the sacred text, so that they, and their children, may have success in life and live to the glory of God.

In the early church, we read of a young man called Timothy, who learned the Holy Scriptures from his mother Eunice, and his grandmother Lois. Timothy was taught scriptural truth from infancy, and as a result, he became a man who was used mightily of God, to preach the word of grace, and to teach others how to live godly lives – as Scripture instructs.

Training up children in the way that they should go is a biblical principle, that is acted out in the lives of many Bible characters. Indeed, the young Lord Jesus Himself, is a wonderful illustration of a child, who became knowledgeable in the Scripture – and competent in joinery, for He was described as ‘the carpenter’s son.’

During His ministry, men marvelled at His biblical knowledge and wondered at the gracious words that fell from His lips. And during His temptation, it was the Word of God that the Lord Jesus used, to counter every satanic temptation, and confound the enemy of His soul.

Solomon’s directive to his son, was to pay heed to his own words of instruction, and not to forsake the teaching of his mother – and this should be a direction that is heeded by every youngster, both boys and girls. But it should also be something to which parents

Proverbs 8:9

They [are] all plain to him that understandeth

Whose understanding is enlightened by the Spirit of God; who is a spiritual man, that has a discerning, and can judge of spiritual things: as for the carnal man, let him have what natural knowledge or wisdom he will, he cannot know these things; for they are spiritually discerned, and can only be discerned by spiritual men. The Bible is a sealed book to others, learned or unlearned; the mysteries or doctrines of the Gospel are hid in parables from such; but those to whom Christ has given an understanding to know him, these know them, and they are plain unto them: for though there are some things hard to he understood in the Scriptures, as in Paul’s epistles, and some sublime truths in the Gospel; yet those which are necessary to salvation are easily understood; that faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save the chief of sinners, is a very plain one;

and right to them that find knowledge;

a spiritual and experimental knowledge of Christ and his truths. The Targum is,

“to them who desire knowledge;”

and so the Syriac version; that seek for it heartily and diligently, in a right way, in the use of proper means, under the direction and by the assistance of the Spirit of God.

What does Proverbs 8:9 mean?

Prior verses compared the truthfulness of godly wisdom to speech which is corrupt, crooked, or false (Proverbs 8:8).

Submission to God and His truth is presented in the Bible as a prerequisite for true discernment (John 7:17). Those who have been enlightened by the Holy Spirit can more clearly understand God’s Word (1 Corinthians 2:14). However, those who have not trusted in Christ, the source of all wisdom, fail to understand the Bible. The apostle Paul’s words in 2 Corinthians 4:3–4 affirm this fact. He writes: “And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. In their case [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

Also, in 1 Corinthians 2:7–10, Paul writes: “But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this… But as it is written ‘What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him’—these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit.”

Context Summary

Proverbs 8:1–11 comes immediately after a potent warning about a promiscuous, seductive woman. Here, Solomon again presents a woman, this time as wisdom personified (Proverbs 1:20). She calls from everywhere to men to learn prudence and sense. She cites the value of learning from her. Her words are noble, right, true, righteous, and honest. Wisdom is far greater than silver, choice gold, jewels, and everything else that can be compared with her.

Chapter Summary

In this passage, wisdom is once again imagined as a woman who cries out to be heard (Proverbs 1:20–21). Wisdom extols her own truth and value. Wisdom was part of God’s creative power long before even the creation of the universe. The chapter again returns to the many benefits of godly wisdom, before completing those declarations at the start of the next chapter
