20 Bible proverbs for spiritual health
  1. A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands. And let her own works praise her in the gates.
  2. Do not let your heart envy sinners, but be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day; for surely there is a hereafter, and your hope will not be cut off.
  3. Do not be envious of evil men, nor desire to be with them; for their heart devises violence, and their lips talk of trouble-making.
  4. Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and do not let your heart be glad when he stumbles; lest the Lord see it, and it displease Him, and He turn away His wrath from him.
  5. Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
  6. Make no friendship with an angry man, and with a furious man do not go, lest you learn his ways and set a snare for your soul.
  7. Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of correction will drive it far from him.
  8. For the Lord gives wisdom, from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the path of the justice, and preserves the way of His Saints.
  9. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
  10. The curse of the Lord is on the house of the wicked, but He blesses the home of the just.

      Hi Eric, Proverbs is God talking to us, and Psalms is us talking to God, beautiful concept. Thanks for commenting.
