Proverbs 2:1-6 – A Treasure Hunt

BIBLE TEXT

Proverbs 2:1-6

SUMMARY

Wisdom is a treasure worth seeking.

ANALYSIS

Chapter 2 is one of the essays that make up the first section of the book (chapters 1-9). Two important features of the kind of wisdom being advocated in this collection are described here: first, wisdom is a treasure, worth seeking and hunting for (one is reminded of Jesus’ story about the treasure hidden in the field [Matthew 13:44]); second, wisdom is theological wisdom, here associated with honoring the Lord and knowing about God, and seen as a divine gift (Proverbs 2:5-6).
