Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 19:8-15. In this Scripture, we are reminded that those who get wisdom love their own soul: those who cherish understanding will prosper.
A false witness will not go without punishment, and those who tell lies will perish. The truth will eventually come to light.
Gladness is not fitting for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
It is by choice that a person defers their anger; and it is their glory to overlook an indiscretion.
The king’s wrath is like the roaring of a lion; but his favor is like dew drops spread on the grass.
A foolish child is the misfortune of their father: and the conflicts of a wife are constantly plummeting.
Houses and riches are the heritage of fathers: and a wise wife is from the LORD.
Laziness will cast you into a deep slumber; and an idle soul will go hungry.
Wisdom and understanding are not something that everybody has. It is something we have to seek after. One of the ways we can gain insight and wisdom is through studying God’s Word.
We should always be in a state of learning as we seek to gain wisdom and knowledge. Life is a constant process of learning, both from our own experiences and from persistently reading and studying.
We can’t expect wisdom to come knocking on our door. We have to pursue wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
Daily Bible Reading:
8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.
10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression.
12 The king’s wrath is as the roaring of a lion; but his favour is as dew upon the grass.
13 A foolish son is the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife are a continual dropping.
14 House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD.
15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
Things to think about:
- What does this Scripture say about those who get wisdom?
- What do we learn about a false witness in this Scripture?
- In what ways do you pursue wisdom?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded those who get wisdom love their own soul. Help us to seek Your wisdom as we study Your Word and learn Your ways. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 by Deborah H. Bateman is part of the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book will contain approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from the enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms Part 1 Chapters 1-30 contains thirty-one Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or groups.
