Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it. (Proverbs 8:1-11)
Prophet Joseph Patrick Oyone Meye reveals an anthology of didactic poetry forming part of the sapiential literature of the Old Testament with his new publication, Divine Poetry.
The primary purpose of this book is to teach wisdom. Directed particularly to the young and inexperienced, this is also for those who desire advanced training in wisdom.
The wisdom which the book teaches covers a wild field of human and divine activity, ranging from matters purely secular to most lofty moral and spiritual truths, such as God’s omniscience, power, providence, goodness, and the joy and the strength resulting from abandonment to him.
The teaching of the entire book is placed on a firm spiritual foundation by the principle that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge”.
This compilation of literary works will provide you models to follow and also inspire you to voice your own deepest feelings and aspirations.
