Pastor Bill Farrow
- v1–7. To promote wisdom and godly living. Verse 7 strikes the theme of the entire book. Reverence toward God is the essential prelude to all wisdom and successful living.
- v8–19. Home discipline is a moral safeguard against a life of crime.
- v20–33. Wisdom personified as a prophetess and teacher. She shows the folly of those who reject moral instruction and discipline.
