Prov 28:13, “He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion.”
DoxologyPraise God, from whom all blessings flow;Praise Him, all creatures here below;Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.—Amen.
The Book of ProverbsChapter 10Vs. 6-14,Contrasting the communication styles of the righteous and wicked!
Prov 10:6Blessings in both quality and quantity will be received by those who walk in righteousness for both time and eternity.
In contrast, operation “cover up”, is the evil person covering up with their speech of flattery, boastfulness and self aggrandizing, the cruel and violent things they think or do.
Prov 10:18,“He who conceals hatred has lying lips, and he who spreads slander is a fool.”
Prov 3:31,“Do not envy a man of violence and do not choose any of his ways.”
Prov 4:17,“For they eat the bread of wickedness and drink the wine of violence.”
Prov 11:11,“By the blessing of the upright a city is exalted, but by the mouth of the wicked it is torn down.”Blessing by association!
Prov 10:7A blessing of the righteous is they will be remembered from generation to generation.Cf. Heb 11; Rev 3:12
The contrast is that the wicked will have a poor reputation and will eventually be forgotten altogether.
Prov 22:1; Ecc 7:1,“A good reputation is better than material prosperity.”
Eccl 9:5, “They have no more reward, for the memory of them is forgotten.”
God blots out only the name/memory of the wicked, cf. Psa 9:6; 34:16; 109:15; Rev 3:5.
God promises the remembrance of the righteous forever but cuts off the remembrance of the wicked person(s), Job 18:17; Psa 34:16; 109:15; or even the wicked nations, Ex 17:14; Deut 25:19; 32:26.
Prov 10:8The R. have Bible Doctrine in the right lobe of their soul ready for application, because they know they need to learn God’s Word consistently in order to retain and maintain it!
This is also one of the blessings the righteous person receives; more doctrine.
Humility saves the wise, Prov 4:10-19, and his right lobe being filled with Doctrine guides his mouth, Prov 16:23, and that in turn saves him experientially, Prov 5:2; 12:19.
Prov 16:23,“The heart of the wise instructs his mouth and adds persuasiveness to his lips.”
The Contrast!“Babbling fool” One who not only lacks sense, but is also morally corrupt as indicated by their speech.
The B.F. is so full of himself that instead of having capacity to accept wisdom he instead blabbers out his “clever opinions,” which are devoid of true wisdom, Prov 10:13; 16:27.
“Will be ruined” LABAT (lavat), לָבַטHe entangles himself in what he says and endangers himself at the cost of his reputation, both with God and man.
The wise person realizes how much there is to learn and understand, Prov 19:27.
The fool is much too busy talking to learn anything or from anyone, thereby lacking in wisdom they will come to destruction.
