Proverbs Bible Background

09.12.2019 – Old Testament: Pro 21.8

To read the Bible in a year, read Proverbs 21–22 on September 12, In the year of our Lord 2019

By Don Ruhl

Watch the guilty and you will see them lead miserable lives. See their fear. See their perversity in all parts of their lives as they seek to deal with the guilt.

Watch the pure and you will see something entirely different. They enjoy life and they make life better for themselves and for others.

Solomon said,

The way of a guilty man is perverse;
But as for the pure, his work is right.

– Proverbs 21.8 

So it happens. Observe how people live and what comes to them as a result. That is what the wise do. They observe and learn.


  • Are you trying to subdue guilt?
  • Is purity a goal for you?
