Adversity & Trouble
Proverbs 1:20-27Compare 1:23 with Jeremiah 29:13.
Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets: She crieth in the chief place of concourse, in the openings of the gates: in the city she uttereth her words, saying, How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you. Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.
A naughty person, a wicked man, walketh with a froward mouth. He winketh with his eyes, he speaketh with his feet, he teacheth with his fingers; Frowardness is in his heart, he deviseth mischief continually; he soweth discord. Therefore shall his calamity come suddenly; suddenly shall he be broken without remedy.
The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.

Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
Proverbs 24:21-221 Peter 2:17 says that we should fear God and honor the king. We should show respect to positions of authority.
My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change: For their calamity shall rise suddenly; and who knoweth the ruin of them both?
Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint.

As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
