by Daniel Vail
The Book of Proverbs in the Bible holds a host of important, sensible lessons that we should apply to our daily lives. Often the proverbsí messages are simple truths and behaviors that we simply need to be reminded of to live more peacefully with one another.
In Proverbs 25:27, the original Hebrew could be understood as saying, "The investigation of glorious things can become a burden." To ease that burden, Daniel Vail made Solomonís Proverbs Poetically Paraphrased, in which he simplifies and pares down the lessons of Proverbs into easily digestible yet eloquent poems. Vail carefully modernizes the concepts, terms, and references from biblical times and the Hebrew language to offer clear lessons on adultery, greed, jealousy, marriage, integrity, wealth, cruelty, obedience, pride, sin, and more in this melodic retelling of Proverbs.
