Proverbs 4 - AMP

2 For I give you good doctrine ; do not forsake my teaching. 3 When I was a son with my father , tender and the only son in the sight of my mother , 4 He taught me and said to me, Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments and live. 5 Get skillful and godly Wisdom, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation); do not forget and do not turn back from the words of my mouth. 6 Forsake not , and she will keep, defend, and protect you; love her, and she will guard you. 7 The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation). 8 Prize Wisdom highly and exalt her, and she will exalt and promote you; she will bring you to honor when you embrace her. 9 She shall give to your head a wreath of gracefulness; a crown of beauty and glory will she deliver to you. 10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of your life shall be many. 11 I have taught you in the way of skillful and godly Wisdom ; I have led you in paths of uprightness. 12 When you walk, your steps shall not be hampered ; and when you run, you shall not stumble. 13 Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; guard her, for she is your life. 14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. 15 Avoid it, do not go on it; turn from it and pass on. 16 For they cannot sleep unless they have caused trouble or vexation; their sleep is taken away unless they have caused someone to fall. 17 For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence. 18 But the path of the just and righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines more and more (brighter and clearer) until the perfect day . 19 The way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know over what they stumble. 20 My son, attend to my words; consent and submit to my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from your sight; keep them in the center of your heart. 22 For they are life to those who find them, healing and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life. 24 Put away from you false and dishonest speech, and willful and contrary talk put far from you. 25 Let your eyes look right on , and let your gaze be straight before you. 26 Consider well the path of your feet, and let all your ways be established and ordered aright. 27 Turn not aside to the right hand or to the left; remove your foot from evil.

Blinded by Darkness
Shared by: Mike Reed on Jul, 2014
Summary: We commonly associate temporary blindness with bright light, such as looking directly into the sun. It seems strange, then, to read a scripture which tells us that we can be blinded by the darkness! Darkness makes the eyes more alert, more receptive.
