Puritan Board Senior
Commentary by Charles Bridges on Proverbs 3:33
Many a homely cottage, tenanted by a child of Abraham, shines more splendidly than the princely palace of the ungodly.† An heir of glory dwells here. A family altar of prayer and praise consecrates it as the temple of Jehovah. (Gen. xii. 8.) Promises, like clouds of blessings, rest over it. God has been honoured, and God will honour. (2 Sam. vi. 11. Jer. xxxv. 18, 19. 2 Tim. i. 18.) "They that dwell under his shadow shall return." (Hos. xiv. 7.) Is then my house under the curse or blessing of the Lord? Let my God be honoured in his own gifts: that I and mine may be manifestly sealed with the full tokens of his love.
