The Peace of Listening
But all who listen to me will live in peace,Proverbs 1:33
untroubled by fear of harm.”
All the wise sayings that preceded this verse were concerning those who had ignored the opportunity for wisdom, 1:20-32. They had chosen their own desires and their own ways over that of wisdom and because of this they were having to deal with the fall out of failing to do what is good and right. Not so with those who had chosen to follow after wisdom, who because of their obedience were graced with peace and did not have to worry about harm coming to them.
