Proverbs 31:2 (KJV)
What, my son? and what, the son of my womb? and what, the son of my vows?
Though I sure couldn’t prove it, I tend to believe Lemuel is a special name Solomon’s mother gave him. These words, all of them, are tender.
What my son?
The phrase is something like, “What shall I say”
What the son of my womb?
My flesh and my blood. A very part of my being.
What the son of my vows?
As a promise to God. Solomon was no doubt a precious son. Born of Bathsheba to David after their initial sin. The first child dying, a second was conceived and God restored to them the joy of their salvation.
What do you say to your son, as perhaps your parting words, or what you consider to be your most important lessons to that boy?
To my readers:
First of all, thank you! It is a great joy to me to know you read the thoughts and lessons God has given me in His word. Secondly, I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave comments.
