Two more “My Son” sections divide chapter 24 into thirds. The chapter starts off with four wisdom statements and ends with a detailed look at the slothful man.
This chapter is all about men. I call it the Man’s Chapter of Proverbs. It’s about men, for men, but ladies you can read it too. It covers topics that are of especial interest to men. I think you’ll enjoy reading it over and over.
This chapter is graced by an abundance of proverbs that refer to the Lord. I like to call chapter sixteen, The Lord’s chapter.
A unique element appears in this chapter. The word “prayer” only occurs three times in Proverbs and two of those times is in this chapter. Guess what section it falls in. Yep. Speech.
