"Where there is no vision, the people perish." In this perceptive commentary familiar sayings from the book of Proverbs, such as this one, are seen in a new light. Kenneth T. Aitken deepens our understanding of the basic collection of popular sayings and folk wisdom of ancient Israel This volume on Proverbs has the unique feature of not approaching the Biblical text in an exclusively chronological fashion. It is primarily verse by verse, but various verses are arranged under single topics (e.g. "The Proud" or "Parental Discipline"). You will find much in Proverbs that concern matters as practical as raising children and teaching good table manners and as timely as gossip and corrupt business practices.

"Where there is no vision, the people perish." In this perceptive commentary familiar sayings from the book of Proverbs, such as this one, are seen in a new light. Kenneth T. Aitken deepens our understanding of the basic collection of popular sayings and folk wisdom of ancient Israel. "We need not," according to Aitken, "dig very deeply into the book to find that the sage looks at life from a different angle from priest or prophet.... The sage concerns himself with people as plain, ordinary individuals who live in the world, and with the wisdom and folly of their attitudes and actions in the common things of life." For this reason, readers will find much in Proverbs that concerns matters as practical as raising children and teaching good table manners and as timely as gossip and corrupt business practices.

Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
