My Favorite Bible Proverbs!
Good advice from God — who doesn’t want that?! We know Solomon did, because he wrote a whole book packed full of wise sayings called “The Proverbs.” And I’m guessing you and your family would like some too!
So I’ve taken the time to list 26 of my favorite Bible proverbs by King Solomon — each with a missing word. Just look up the attached Bible references to complete the sayings.
Complete These 26 Bible Proverbs
Hint: The 26 missing words appear in alphabetical order. That means the first one starts with A and the last one starts with Z. Well, for X and Z, I may have fudged a little bit — but I think you’ll be able to figure them out anyway. (If you don’t have a King James Bible, I made sure other translations like NIV, NKJV, ESV, and NASB will work also.)

Enjoy God forever,
