These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside The Expositor's Bible- The Book of Proverbs:Look inside the book: Impossible as it has been in the Lectures to bring out the history and structure of the book, it will greatly help the reader to bear in mind what has just been said; he will thus be prepared for the striking contrast between the glowing beauty of the introduction and the somewhat frigid precepts which occur so frequently among the Proverbs themselves; he will be able to appreciate more fully the point which is from timePg 8 to time brought into relief, that much of the teaching contained in the book is crude and imperfect, of value for us only when it has been brought to the standard of our Lord's spirit, corrected by His love and wisdom, or infused with His Divine life. ...In this pregnant truth we may distinguish three ideas: first, fear, or, as we should probably say, reverence, is the pre-requisite of all scientific, philosophical, or religious truth; second, no real knowledge or wisdom can be attained which does not start with the recognition of God; and then, thirdly, the expression is not only 'the fear of God,' which might refer only to the Being that is presupposed in any intelligent explanation of phenomena, but the 'fear of the Lord,' i.e. of Jahveh, the self-existent One, who has revealed Himself in a special way to men as 'I am what I am;' and it is therefore hinted that no satisfactory philosophy of human life and history can be constructed which does not build upon the fact of revelation.
