Thought from Today's Old Testament Passage:
From the prayer to the end of the chapter we have his observations on various matters affecting conduct. In this the first section opens with a proverb (verse 10). Then follow descriptions of four evil generations and of "four things" perpetually dissatisfied. The second section opens with a proverb (verse 17), and is followed by four groups of four things. The first four excite wonder, the second four, terror; the third four are little things, but exceeding wise; the final four are stately things. The whole movement ends with a proverb (verses 32,33).
The second half is a beautiful picture of a virtuous woman, and may be supposed to be King Lemuel's picture of his mother.
