Proverbs 8:25 (Mini Sermon)Submitted by Pastor Chad Wagner on Wednesday, September 29, 2021.
25. Pro 8:25 - "Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:" A. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: i. "I" in this verse is wisdom personified (Pro 8:1, 12). ii. God existed for all eternity before He created the earth and brought forth the mountains (Psa 90:2). iii. The mountains and hills were created on the third day of creation when God gathered the waters together into one place and made the dry land appear (Gen 1:9-10). iv. Settled ppl. - 7. That has sunk down or subsided. Of earth: Compacted, consolidated. v. Before the mountains and hills had sunk down and dried out, God had brought forth wisdom. vi. Just as in Pro 8:24, the LORD is telling us that before the creation of the world He brought forth wisdom. a. Bring v. - 16. bring forth. a. To produce, give birth to, bring into being, bear, yield (offspring; fruit, flowers, etc.; natural products; products, effects, results). c. To utter, express; to put forth, adduce, advance. d. To bring to light, or public view. b. In scripture bring/bought forth often means to bring to light into public view (Lev 24:14; Jos 2:3; Gen 14:18; Gen 24:53). c. As was noted in the comments on Pro 8:24, God used His wisdom to create the world (Pro 3:19) which is why He brought it forth before He began creating.
