There is tremendous value for God’s people in studying the wisdom of the book of the Proverbs. However, a large portion of the book is very sporadic with short proverbs jumping from one topic to another very quickly, many times changing from one verse to the next. I have attempted to summarize the book of Proverbs based on major topics that are very prevalent in the book to help aid in my study of this book (and hopefully your study as well). This topical verse summary is no substitute for reading this book verse by verse as it was inspired by the Holy Spirit. In addition to that expositional reading, we hope this topical grouping of the book will help us see the Proverbs’ treatment of major topics all grouped together instead of finding these verses sprinkled all throughout the book.
