Put To Shame By Your Neighbor 25:8

Put To Shame By Your Neighbor
Proverbs 25:8

What you have seen with your eyes
do not bring hastily to court,
for what will you do in the end
if your neighbor puts you to shame?

PCdc Commentary

I taught my progeny from the crib:
You cannot believe your eyes.

Magicians have profited greatly by fooling the eye.
Do not be to quick to accuse your neighbor
just because you think you saw something.

Wicked Officials And What To Do About Them 25:4-5

Wicked Officials And What To Do About Them
Proverbs 25:4-5

Remove the dross from the silver,
and a silversmith can produce a vessel;
remove wicked officials from the king’s presence,
and his throne will be established through righteousness.

PCdc Commentary

Purity is a requirement for good government.
What to do with the wicked officials:
Ignore them?
Transfer them?
Promote them?
No, REMOVE these wicked officials.

Searching Out Concealed Matters 25:2-3

Searching Out Concealed Matters
Proverbs 25:2-3

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;
to search out a matter is the glory of kings.
As the heavens are high and the earth is deep,
so the hearts of kings are unsearchable.

PCdc Commentary

As kings (and, by extension, queens),
we are to search out what God has concealed.
This gives us depth in the knowledge and wisdom of God.
