The author and stated purpose of the book of Proverbs is revealed in the first two verses of Chapter 1. To know godly wisdom and instruction, to discern and comprehend the words of understanding... (AMP.). This collection of some 900 proverbs is presented in 31 chapters. If you read one proverb every day corresponding to the day of the month you will read the book of Proverbs in a month in just a few minutes a day. (Give or take a day or two depending on the number of days in the month). By doing this every month you will have read the book of Proverbs 12 times in a year. The King James will be displayed here but I like to read other versions along with it. That gives you additional insight and understanding to what's being presented.
