First let's get something clear about erroneous notions of Paul and his founding a new religion, which he didn't. True, the halakhah of his Judaism switched from the Pharisaic oral law to the Ruach Hakodesh, but his religion was still one of the Judaisms of the time, not a new non-Judaism Gentile religion.
The fear of the L-rd is the beginning of Wisdom (1:7,29; 9:10;
15:33) and "life indeed" (19:23). Moreover, whether to fear the
L-rd is a choice (1:29) with ethical implications (14:2; 16:6)
that are a matter of life and death (21:16). The aim of
acquiring wisdom is acquiring more trust in the L-rd (22:19) as
we seek Him (28:5). The waywardly complacent fool makes the
wrong choice (14:16,33; 15:17, 17:16), and the Book of Proverbs
strongly exhorts the pursuit of Biblical wisdom as something of
incomparable value (16:16; 23:23), asserting that whoever does
not tremble at the wise words of Scripture is a doomed fool
(19:16), even if he is outwardly religious (15:8; 21:27; 28:9)
and generally presumed righteous (20:9; 21:2; 30:12).
The Book of Proverbs deals with practical wisdom, with matters
like marrying well and finding a good spouse (see 18:22;
31:10-31). Also wisdom itself is something that is found. Wisdom
(chochma) is presented metaphorically as a lady street preacher
(1:20-33; 8:1-9:12) and is contrasted with the lethal allure of
Dame Folly (Aishet K'siloot "a woman of folly"), presented in
contrast as an adulterous street walker (2:16-19; 6:24-7:27;
9:13-18; 23:27-28; 30:20). Both women make strong appeals to the
passersby in front of their respective houses. The house of one
is blessed and the other is cursed (see also 14:1), and all who
enter the house of one or the other will share in either the
house's blessing or its curse. This poetic teaching against
sexual immorality falls within the larger theme of "bad company
destroys good morals" (I Cor. 15:33) which includes 1:10-19;
2:12-22; 3:31-35; 4:14-19; 14:7; 22:5,14,24-25; 28:7; 29:3; 31:3
and passages which deal with ethical qualities like envy, greed,
covetousness, violence, mercy, generosity, and kindness
(11:24-26; 15:27; 21:13,31,26; 22:9,16,22-23; 23:4-6,17; 24:1;
27:4; 28:20,22,25; 28:27; 29:7; 30:14-15).
Seen in a feminine image, Wisdom is the most desirable of women
and the tree of life (3:13-18; 4:22; 8:35-36--see also 11:30).
Seen in a masculine image, he is the Father's Son (Prov. 30:4),
working as a master worker, a carpenter's assistant used
instrumentally to create the world (3:19; 8:22-34).
PROVERBS 8:30 "Then I was by him (at his side), as an artisan
(craftsman). I was filled with delight day after day, rejoicing
always before him."
(When the Word became flesh, he became the craftsman at Joseph's
side...Joseph the carpenter from Nazareth, Joseph the son of
Dovid; likewise, the Word in the beginning was the craftsman at
the side of G-d. The feminine metaphor with which this chapter
began has changed to a masculine one. Amon is a masculine noun
meaning artisan or craftsman. Another possible meaning is
foster-child. In any case, as Keil and Delitzsch have shown, at
this point in the chapter the feminine determination disappears.
See how the word is used in Jeremiah 52:15. To be filled with
the Spirit of G-d like Bezalel meant to be filled with wisdom to
build creatively as a craftsman--see Exodus 31:3. Thus Wisdom is
pictured as a craftsman with G-d, even as Yochanan 1:1 says, "In
the beginning was the Word and the Word was with G-d." In
Proverbs 30:4 more light is thrown on this passage: Wisdom is
like a Son, a Son working creatively at his Father's side.
However, Hosea 11:1-4 shows that the divine fatherhood is moral
and spiritual, in contrast to the sexual or physical ideas of the
Baal cults, or in contrast to the ignorant scoffers at the
Biblical doctrine of G-d the Father of His Word Yehoshua. These
critics show the same ignorant tendency to create a non-biblical
strawman "trinity" and then burn it down with ill-informed
polemics, like the ignorant railings of certain Muslims against
the Qur'anic version of the "trinity.")
PROVERBS 30:4 "Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended?
Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? Who hath bound the
waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the
earth? What is his name, and what is his Son's name, if thou
(It will not do to try to bring Israel in here as the Son, since
the context reflects back to Proverbs 8 and especially 8:30.
Israel is scarcely mentioned or thought of in Proverbs. The
figure of a son toiling by the side of his father was a familiar
one, and is an arresting metaphor for G-d's primordial Wisdom
toiling creatively in the beginning with G-d. Likewise, Psalm
2:7, Psalm 89:27-28, and Isaiah 9:(5)6 are passages where the
Moshiach is pictured as G-d's Son, his firstborn in the sense of
his heir coming in divine glory (see Daniel 7:13-14 on the Son
who comes in the clouds with G-d) to "divide the spoil with the
strong" (Isaiah 53:12) and to govern eternally--Isaiah 9:7(6).)
The folly of the Fall (Gen. 3:1-24) itself is alluded to in Prov.
3:5-7,-Trust in the L-rd with all your heart, and do not rely on
your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will
make straight your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear
the L-rd, and turn away from evil" (see also 11:2; 12:9; 14:12;
15:25,33; 16:5,18-19; 18:12; 19:3; 21:4,24; 25:6-7,27; 26:12;
27:1-2; 28:26; 29:23, which also touch on the sin of pride and
The book advocates honoring G-d with the tithe (3:9-10) and
remaining docile before Him to hear and obey His Scriptural
commands (3:11-12; 10:8,17; 12:1,15; 13:1,13; 15:5,10,12,31-32;
19:20,25; 20:18,30; 21:11; 24:6; 25:12; 27:5-6,17; 28:23; 29:1)
lest one backslide (26:11; 28:4). Obeying G-d requires hard
work, diligence, and shrewd planning for future needs (6:6-11;
10:4-5, 26; 12:11,24,27, 13:4; 14:4,23; 15:19; 16:26; 18:9;
19:15,24; 20:4,13; 21:5,17,25; 22:7,13; 24:27,30-34; 26:13-16;
27:18,25-27; 28:19), as well as self-control (16:32; 19:19; 20:1;
23:19-21, 29-35; 25:28; 29:11,22; 31:4-5), straightforwardness
and honesty of speech (4:24; 6:12; 10:10-11; 12:17,19,22;
14:5,25; 19:9,28; 21:6,28; 26:23-28; 30:8) and foreswearing all
treachery, dishonesty, and injustice (3:29; 10:2; 11:1,9,20;
13:5; 16:11; 17:23; 18:5; 20:17,23; 22:28; 24:10-12,24-25;
38:13), remembering that G-d hates the slanderer (10:18), the
gossip (11:13; 16:28; 18:8; 20:19; 26:20,22), the sower of
discord (6:12-19; 13:10; 26:21), and the one who gloats (24:17)
or belittles people (11:12) or is bitterly vengeful (24:29;
25:21-22) or is a mocker (30:17).
Part of the task of teaching shrewdness to the simple (1:4) is
warning him not to offer property as collateral for his
neighbor's debts or to similarly go into debt himself (6:1-5;
11:15; 17:18; 20:16; 22:26-27; 27:13). Also he must be taught to
be sensitive to the reactions of others and how they are
perceiving him (25:17; 27:14,23).
"Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses" (10:12),
"whoever walks with the wise becomes wise" (13:20), meaning that
we should stay in fellowship with fellow believers and maintain a
loving relationship with them (see 17:9). But "the one who lives
alone is self-indulgent" (18:1a). "What is desirable in a person
is loyalty" (19:22a; 20:6; 25:19; 27:10).
Notice that the sage no less than the prophet preaches the Torah
and warns about its curses (see 2:22; 10:30; Deut. 28:63-67)
This book was written "for the wise" (1:5) but it also written
for young people (1:8,10; 19:27; 22:6), who will perish without
discipline (13:24; 19:18; 22:15; 23:13-14; 29:15,17). This book
reminds and we always need reminding, that "a good name is to be
chosen rather than great riches" (22:1).
This is a book concerning self-control and common sense in
matters of work, diligence, speech, honesty, and sex.
Prov. 1:22. The fool does not study the Word, does not tremble
at the Word, does not acknowledge it by his life though he may
always be "learning" it (II Tim. 3:6-7). He has not been "made
into a learner with a teacher" according to Matthew 28:19-20. A
disciple is a "learner with a teacher."
Prov. 1:33 Fearing no mischance means not fearing what Sartre
feared, the radical continguency of life, that "anything can
happen." (See 29:25; 28:1 and do a concordance study on "fear" in
the book of Proverbs.

Prov. 7:11 Don't let any spirit drive you, whether it be the

Prov. 8:22 Creation's wisdom is created, but the rationality of
G-d in creation is uncreated, and it was this power in G-d that
came on the scene as the man Moshiach Yehoshua. Humanity has
wisdom the animals lack because, unlike animals, we are create in
the image of G-d. But G-d always imaged Himself by his
rationality in the Logos, the logic of G-d. The Moshiach is the
Chochmah Elohim (the Wisdom of G-d) who gave Moses the pattern
for the Tabernacle on Mt. Sinai (Exodus 25:40).
Prov. 9:13 We should strive to act on the prompting of the Ruach
Hakodesh rather than on impulse.
