Precepts and Warnings

17 Pay attention and turn your ear to the sayings of the wise; apply your heart to what I teach, 18 for it is pleasing when you keep them in your heart and have all of them ready on your lips.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Proverbs 22:17-18

Commentary on Proverbs 22:17-21

(Read Proverbs 22:17-21)

To these words, to this knowledge, the ear must be bowed down, and the heart applied by faith and love. To live a life of delight in God and dependence on him, is the foundation of all practical religion. The way to know the certainty of the word of truth, is to make conscience of our duty.
