Sermon September 1, 2019

Proverbs 25:2–10 - Humility

2 It is the glory of God to conceal things, 

but the glory of kings is to search things out. 

3 As the heavens for height, and the earth for depth, 

so the heart of kings is unsearchable. 

4 Take away the dross from the silver, 

and the smith has material for a vessel; 

5 take away the wicked from the presence of the king, 

and his throne will be established in righteousness. 

6 Do not put yourself forward in the king’s presence 

or stand in the place of the great, 

7 for it is better to be told, “Come up here,” 

than to be put lower in the presence of a noble. 

What your eyes have seen 

8 do not hastily bring into court, 

for what will you do in the end, 

when your neighbor puts you to shame? 

9 Argue your case with your neighbor himself, 

and do not reveal another’s secret, 

10 lest he who hears you bring shame upon you, 

and your ill repute have no end.
