Daily Nudge: Wisdom verse — and news

Share a verse, any verse, doesn’t have to be a favorite verse, from the Wisdom and Poetical books. Several of you mentioned or quoted from Proverbs 31 yesterday, so today’s Nudge seems a good take-off from that.

The Jews lumped them, and a few others like Daniel, together and called them the Writings. Sometimes the book of Psalms stood in for the entire collection. (That’s called synecdoche.) Jesus did that in Luke 24:44, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you, that everything written about me in the law of Moses and the prophets and the psalms must be fulfilled.”

So bring us an inspired gem today from Job to Song of Solomon and comment on it, tell us why you chose it, what it means to you, how you hope it will encourage us. Something.

And some news.
