This page will list my understanding of a selection of Old Testament passages.
Proverbs 22:6 – Train up a child according to his way – But who is “his” referring to?
This post summarizes my understanding and some common misunderstandings of the promise in Proverbs 22:6 that if you train up a child according to his way that when he grows old, he won’t depart from it. The question it tries to address is who “his way” is referring to.
Ecclesiastes 7:28 – One upright man but no upright woman?
This post summarizes my understanding Solomon’s statement in Ecclesiastes 7:28, “While I was still searching but not finding — I found one upright man among a thousand, but not one upright woman among them.” It discusses who the “one upright man among a thousand” may have been and what he meant when he said he couldn’t find “one upright woman.”
