Proverbs 12 (New King James Version)

1 Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge,

But he who hates correction is stupid.

2 A good man obtains favor from the LORD,

But a man of wicked intentions He will condemn.

3 A man is not established by wickedness,

But the root of the righteous cannot be moved.

4 An excellent[a] wife is the crown of her husband,

But she who causes shame is like rottenness in his bones.

5 The thoughts of the righteous are right,

But the counsels of the wicked are deceitful.

6 The words of the wicked are, “Lie in wait for blood,”

But the mouth of the upright will deliver them.

7 The wicked are overthrown and are no more,

But the house of the righteous will stand.

8 A man will be commended according to his wisdom,

But he who is of a perverse heart will be despised.

9 Better is the one who is slighted but has a servant,

Than he who honors himself but lacks bread.

10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal,

But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.

11 He who tills his land will be satisfied with bread,

But he who follows frivolity is devoid of understanding.[b]

12 The wicked covet the catch of evil men,

But the root of the righteous yields fruit.

13 The wicked is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,

But the righteous will come through trouble.

14 A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth,

And the recompense of a man’s hands will be rendered to him.

15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,

But he who heeds counsel is wise.

16 A fool’s wrath is known at once,

But a prudent man covers shame.

17 He who speaks truth declares righteousness,

But a false witness, deceit.

18 There is one who speaks like the piercings of a sword,

But the tongue of the wise promotes health.

19 The truthful lip shall be established forever,

But a lying tongue is but for a moment.

20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,

But counselors of peace have joy.

21 No grave trouble will overtake the righteous,

But the wicked shall be filled with evil.

22 Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,

But those who deal truthfully are His delight.

23 A prudent man conceals knowledge,

But the heart of fools proclaims foolishness.

24 The hand of the diligent will rule,

But the lazy man will be put to forced labor.

25 Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression,

But a good word makes it glad.

26 The righteous should choose his friends carefully,

For the way of the wicked leads them astray.

27 The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting,

But diligence is man’s precious possession.

28 In the way of righteousness is life,

And in its pathway there is no death.

 

Hezekiah king of Judah - Part -3

Sennacherib Threatens Jerusalem.

Hezekiah purified The Temple of God, celebrated the Passover, contributed, organished the  Worship in The Holy Temple and assigned the priests and the Levites their duties.He did what was good and right and faithful before the Lord his God. In every work he began in the service of the house of God, and in the the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and worked wholeheartedly, and so he prospered.

After all that Hezekiah had so faithfully done, Sennacherib king of Assyria came and invaded Judah. When Hezekiah saw that Sennacherib intended to make war against Jerusalem , he consulted with his military staff and officials and blocked off the waterfrom the springs outside the city so that Sennacherib will not find plenty of water. He worked hard and repaired all the broken sections of the city wall, built towers on them,reinforced the existing wall by building another wall outside it. He also made large number of weapons and shields.He appointed military officers over the people and assembled them before him in the square at the city gate. He encouraged them with these words.

" Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of the king            of Assyria and the vast army with him , for there is a greater power with us than with him. With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles."And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.

Later Sennacherib sent his officers to Jerusalem with his message to the king and his people, "what is your confidence , you are in Jerusalem which is under my siege. Hezekiah says,'The Lord our God will save us'; he is misleading you, to let you die of hunger and thirst.. Do not believe him, for no God of any nation has been able to deliver his people from my hand.."

Sennacherib's officers spoke further against The Lord God and His servant Hezekiah. He also wrote letters insulting The Lord , the God of Israel. Hezekiah went into The Temple of God and spread out the letter before The Lord and prayed," O Lord almighty .. you alone are God.. their god's are only wood and stone , fashioned by human hands ... Deliver us from his hands , so that all kingdoms on earth may know that you alone , O Lord , are God".

King Hezekiah and prophet Isaiah cried out in prayer to heaven about this .And The Lord sent an angel, who annihilated all the fighting men and the officers in the camp of the Assyrian king, a hundred and eighty-five thousand men. So Sennacherib went back to his own land in disgrace. When he went into his temple of god, some of his sons killed him with the sword. So The Lord saved Hezekiah and the people of Jerusalem from the hands of Sennacherib king of Assyria , guided them and took care of them. Many brought offerings to Jerusalem for The Lord and valuable gifts for Hezekiah king of Judah. From then on he was highly regarded by all the nations !  ( 2Chronicles 32)

To remember : But now, Lord , what do I look for ? My hope is in you. Psalms 39:7
