I don't know but somehow I'm having a hard time to accept the proverbs as inspired. I mean the first 9 proverbs sound inspired but then it becomes so strange. They sound like normal sayings which don't have a real meaning and which are not applyable. For example what about this here: Pro 25:17 Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour's house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee. Is this a universal statement from God which applies to everybody? Does this mean that supposing you have a friend who you like to hang out with then you must not hang out with him too often because otherwise he will become sick of you? Does this mean that if you have been over at his house yesterday and you played videogames and today he calls you and asks you to come over again then you have to say: No, I cannot because proverbs 25:17 says that it's not good. I mean if the proverbs are inspired then every single verse has to be correct, right? But I think that there are many statements where you cannot simply say that they always apply and that they are always correct. For example when I say that it's not wise to help an ungrateful person because the ungrateful person will not be grateful then this can be true but it could also be wrong. There could also be an ungrateful person which becomes grateful due to having been helped. You simply cannot make a general statement. But this is exactly what proverbs does and I have my problems with this. And what about all the repetitions? Sometimes the same statements are repeated over and over again. Why is that?
