Proverbs 25:1-2 The Passion Translation (TPT)

25 Solomon’s proverbs, published by the scribes of King Hezekiah:

God conceals the revelation of his word[a]
in the hiding place of his glory.[b]
But the honor of kings[c] is revealed
by how they thoroughly search out
the deeper meaning of all that God says.


  1. Proverbs 25:2 Many translate this “a matter,” whereas the Hebrew is dabar, which is translated more than eight hundred times in the Old Testament as “word.”
  2. Proverbs 25:2 There is beautiful poetry in the Hebrew text. The word for “hide” is cathar and the word for “word” is dabar. The Hebrew is actually “Kabod (glory) cathar (hidden) dabar (word).”
  3. Proverbs 25:2 We have been made kings and priests, royal lovers of God, because of God’s grace and Christ’s redeeming blood. See 1 Peter 2:9 and Rev. 5:8-10.
