Better is the poor that walketh in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips, and is a fool.

Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.

19:4 财物使朋友增多。但穷人朋友远离。

19:29 刑罚是为亵慢人豫备的。鞭打是为愚昧人的背豫备的。

Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.

箴言19参考

追求富足是否容易使人远离神?
19:1 毫无瑕疵的人生,比财富更为宝贵,但是很多人都不遵行这信条。他们为增加自己的财富,不惜付出任何代价:例如瞒税,偷窃,投机诈骗,不作十一奉献,不肯施舍助人等。但若我们爱神的话,就会认识到较低水平的物质生活,甚至是相对贫穷,其实是为保持个人的廉正而付出的少许代价。你的行为是否表明你牺牲了自己的正直来加增财富呢?你需要改变甚么,才能使你的生活不会本末倒置呢?

“脚步急快的……”是吗?我盲目吗?行事有足够的考虑吗?
19:2 我们常常鸙忙行事,却不知道自己所做的是甚么。许多人不知道自己对婚姻生活或配偶有甚么期盼,就盲目结婚。有些人藉滥交或吸毒来追求刺激,一点也不顾及后果。有些人没有衡量自身是否适合某种工作,就投入其中。不要糊涂地做人。在你迈出第一步以前,一定要了解你所要做的事和你所要去的地方。假使你仍不清楚的话,切记要跟从神的指引。

爱惜自己对不对?
19:8 如果你的灵魂出现危机的话,爱惜自己是完全应该的。这一节箴言并不是认同以自我为中心的人,这种人只爱自己,为保护自己的自私欲望和利益不择手段。这一节经文乃是要鼓励真正关心自己的生命而寻求智慧的人。

“诫命”包括哪些内容?
19:16 这里所吩咐我们顺从的“诫命”就是圣经中的教诲,包括十诫(参出20章)与其他有关教导的经文。顺从神的教导就是保全自己的生命;不顺从的就是自招灭亡。

你怎样看待穷人,有没有觉得他们是社会的包袱?
19:17 神不嫌弃穷人,这与主耶稣所做的一样(参太25:31-46)。他是我们的创造主,他所创造的,不分穷富他都珍爱。我们帮助穷人,既是尊重了这位造物主,又尊重了他所造的人。神会悦纳我们对别人的帮助,把它看作馨香的祭。

敬畏神的人如何能“不遭祸患”?
19:23 敬畏耶和华的人“不遭祸患”,因为他们有良好的生活习惯及有益的生活方式,有时也蒙神亲自拯救。不过这只是一般而言,敬畏耶和华并不保证今生完全不遭祸患。事实上恶事仍然会临到爱神的人身上。只有当我们在没有罪恶的新天新地中,忠信的信徒才会蒙神永远保守(有关这概念的详细说明,请参3:16-17的注释)。
这是甚么习俗、意指……
19:24 “放手在盘子里”是犹太人的饮食习惯,在盘子传过来的时候,各人从中取食物。这一节箴言是说,有些人极其懒惰,甚至不肯伸手取食物放进嘴里。

灯不拨不亮,人不点不明。你愿意被人点拨吗?
19:25 从别人的批评中学习与不肯领受管教的人,有极大的分别。我们回应批评时的态度,能够反映我们的智慧是否增长了。有人批评你的时候,要仔细听他所讲的话,从中学习。
