PROVERBS 25:1-28

This chapter of Proverbs speaks of WISDOM FOR LEADERS!!

These proverbs were collected by Hezekiah’s advisers. The first section was written by Solomon, and the next two sections were written by others. While we   all can learn from these proverbs, many were originally directed toward the king or those who dealt with the king. These are particularly helpful for those who are leaders or aspire to become leaders. The book ends with a description of a truly good wife, who is an example of godly wisdom.

25:1 These are more proverbs of Solomon, compiled by the men of Hezekiah king of Judah:


Hezekiah’s story is told in 2 Kings 18–20; 2 Chronicles 29–32; and Isaiah 36–39. He was one of the few kings of Judah who honored the Lord. By contrast, his father, Ahaz, actually nailed the temple door shut. Hezekiah restored the temple, destroyed idol worship centers, and earned the respect of surrounding nations, many of whom brought gifts to God because of him. It is not surprising that Hezekiah had these proverbs copied and read, for “in everything that he undertook in the service of God’s temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered” (2 Chronicles 31:21).
