Daily Wisdom Bible Study – The Years of the Wicked Shall Be Shortened
26 As vinegar to the teeth, and as smoke to the eyes, so is the sluggard to them that send him.
Unfortunately, if you send a lazy man to do a job, you might as well put vinegar on your teeth and smoke in your eyes, because that is what you are doing to the person you sent the sluggard to. It is very annoying because the sluggard is difficult to work with!
The Years of the Wicked Shall Be Shortened
27 The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.
Why does the fear of the Lord prolong our days? As Job told us in chapter 28 and verse 28, “the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” When we have wisdom, our days on the earth get longer and longer, even eternal life. On the other side of this coin, when wickedness started to abound in the earth, God first took immortality from man. Then God took away long life (900 year lifespans). Finally God gave the DNA in mankind 120 years, if they are strong, even taking the median age down to 80 and 70. Because mankind is wicked, our days in the flesh have been shortened. We must fear God to lengthen it for our individual selves.
28 The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish.
If we are hoping for the Kingdom of God, we will be glad; but if you are not living right, you are expecting destruction. The saddest thing I hear daily when people are in idle conversations about nothing, and one of them says, “I’m going to hell!” They usually make this remark as a joke because of something they did bad, however, it is an example of how the wicked expect to perish.
29 The way of the Lord is strength to the upright: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity.
When we do the ways of the Lord, we find strength in doing thus. I feel good when I make good decisions in the Lord, until my decisions are natural to the ways of God.
30 The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
This is an interesting verse; the righteous are on the earth now and will never be removed. On the flip side, the wicked will not inhabit the earth! Why not? It is because God created the earth to abide and be inhabited forever (Isaiah 45 v18 & Ecclesiastes 1 v4)! God will not have the wicked inhabiting the earth in God’s Kingdom.
31 The mouth of the just bringeth forth wisdom: but the froward tongue shall be cut out.
Bring wisdom and be just or have your tongue cut out!
The Years of the Wicked Shall Be Shortened
32 The lips of the righteous know what is acceptable: but the mouth of the wicked speaketh frowardness.
This is the difference between knowledge, wisdom, and understanding from plain foolish lips. The wise know what is acceptable, the wicked speak frowardly.
