A proverb is a short sentence expressing in a few words a well known and established truth. As you read Proverbs, you will find the words of Solomon are as up-to-date as tomorrow's newspaper. The following outlines provide a clear exposition of each chapter of Proverbs and are intended only to act as a spring board to the whole counsel of God's Word. The only objective intended here, is to know God by the Word of God. Proverbs is more than just learning about God, it is learning FROM God.
