Solomon Bible Verses Study
Welcome to our Christianity Oasis Bible Characters study program. This is our Solomon Bible Verses study. The truth within this SON-derful Solomon Bible Verses study will truly enhance your be-YOU-tiful Christian walk.
Solomon was king David's son. He became the king of Israel when David
died. When God asked Solomon, "What shall I give thee," Solomon
answered, "An understanding heart to judge (rule fairly) thy people,
that I may discern (understand the difference) between good and bad."
God was so pleased that Solomon asked for something that would be
good for God's people, instead of asking for something for himself,
that God made Solomon the wisest man to ever live. Solomon built a
house for the Lord in Jerusalem. There was peace on the earth through
the years that Solomon was king. God also gave Solomon riches and
honour. Solomon spoke 3,000 proverbs (wise, true sayings) and wrote
The Book of Proverbs
God's Fortune Cookies
If you like The Book of Psalms, you're sure to like the book of
Proverbs. As you may know, the Psalms were written by king David, but
did you know that the Proverbs were written by the wisest man to ever
live? King David's son, named Solomon wrote the Proverbs. You can
read all about the life of Solomon in the first half of The First
Book of Kings.
Let's share a little Bible trivia, shall we? What is a proverb?
In Latin, two words are combined, the words pro or "for" and verba or
"words." In the Proverbs of Solomon, many words are concentrated into
few, and these easily remembered phrases are called Proverbs.
The key element of Proverbs is wisdom. Solomon, being the wisest man
ever, extends his wisdom (from God) to us in many short adages.
You'll want to read them slowly, and pause between each line to let
it sink in before you read the next one, because in most of them, he
switches from one subject to another with no apparent connection.
You may think of Proverbs as God's fortune cookies. As a matter of
fact, you could write them on little pieces of paper, fold them up
and put them in a box, then select one each morning to read and to
try and apply to your life.
In addition, there are 31 chapters in the Book of Proverbs, making it
easy to keep track of reading one chapter each day, along with five
Psalms, and cover both books each month. When you do something over
and over again, it becomes a habit, and the Psalms and Proverbs will
become a part of you. Wisdom is something that nobody can have enough
There are a vast amount of topics that are taught in The Book of
Proverbs and some are repeated frequently with slightly different
wording. Some people can go from being completely lost, to
understanding something perfectly with the change of a single word.
You're gonna love the Truth in each and every one of the Proverbs.
You can think of them as guidelines of living a godly life in an
ungodly world. Ever wonder how to relate better with God, your
parents, your children, your friends, neighbors, teachers,
co-workers, government? Solomon has answers for you, some in
parables, some in short stories, but most in single lines of common
sense that were meant to help you through ... Life!
