|1||Why is anatomy often in Proverbs?||Prov 16:1||JustinToner||241346|
|What is meant by the use of the word "tongue" in this passage? What is the meaning behind the use of names of human anatomy (bones, lips, mouth, etc.) found throughout the book of Proverbs?|
|2||How does sorrow and toil relate?||Prov 10:22||JustinToner||241311|
|Thank you Doc.
What about the word sorrow? Why say "...he adds no sorrow with it."?
|3||Proverbs 10:22||Prov 10:22||JustinToner||241274|
|My ESV translation gives this for Proverbs 10:22:
"The blessing of the Lord makes rich,
and he adds no sorrow with it.[a]"
For note a, it gives this:
"Or and toil adds nothing to it"
How did those two different translations come about? It seems to me the noted alternative indicates that working hard does add the riches of God's blessings.

|5||Kingdom of Heaven - what is it?||NT general||JustinToner||239422|
|Matthew 3:2 and 4:17 both contain "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." (ESV)
What does "... the kingdom of heaven is at hand" mean? Is that simply a statement that the Messiah has arrived on earth?
|6||Baptized by Holy Spirit?||Matt 3:11||JustinToner||239385|
|Per Matthew 3:11, what does it mean to be baptized by the Holy Spirit?
Background: I am studying the passage of Matthew 3:5-12 and asked myself the following question (in regards to Matt 3:11-12): "John states that Jesus will baptize with the Holy Spirit and fire, and then explains how Jesus will separate the saved from the unsaved. Is the baptism by the Holy Spirit for the saved, and the baptism by fire for the unsaved? If so, is the baptism by the Holy Spirit before or after a person dies?"
