Proverbs 26: Promise

An undeserved curse will be powerless to harm you. It may flutter over you like a bird, but it will find no place to land.

Proverbs 26:2 (TPT)

Like a sparrow in its flitting, like a swallow in its flying, so a curse without cause does not alight.

Proverbs 26:2 (NASB)

Like a fluttering sparrow or a darting swallow, an undeserved curse will not land on its intended victim.

Proverbs 26:2 (NLT)

You have as little to fear from an undeserved curse as from the dart of a wren or the swoop of a swallow.

Proverbs 26:2 (MSG)

I’m sure you noticed I shared the same verse in 4 different versions. My desire in doing so is to offer you the opportunity to let the visual of what this verse is saying come to life and allow you to receive the peace and hope wrapped within these words. This verse also reminds me of the scripture in Isaiah that says:

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgement you will condemn.

Isaiah 54:17

I sit here overwhelmed by the love of the Father. I was talking/praying about something with Him this morning. It’s incredible and mind blowing how He has the wisdom to speak and answer even when I have a chapter prepared ahead of time to read.

The first part of that verse in Isaiah kept coming to mind as I was typing the Proverb, so I went to look it at. As I was writing it, I noticed I had a whole set of verses highlights, so I read it all. Initially I thought, I want to share and release this word over the readers. The Father spoke to me as I was reading it and said “This is my promise to you. You asked, I’m answering.”

I will for sure be writing down these verses and carrying it around with me so that I can remember His promise to me.

Although personal to me, I still want to release this word over you because I believe the Father desires you know that this is His heart towards you as well. I will be sharing it in The Passion Translation because I know most don’t have this version yet, but it reads so beautifully.

Even if the mountains were to crumble and the hills disappear, my heart of steadfast, faithful love will never leave you and my covenant of peace will never be shaken, says Yahweh, whose love and compassion will never give up on you.

You unhappy one, storm-tossed and troubled, I am ready to rebuild you with previous stones and your intimacy with me will be built on a foundation of sapphires.

I will make your towers of rubies your gates of sparkleing jewels, and your walls of precious delightful stones.

All your children will be taught by Yahweh, and great will be their peace and prosperity.

You will be established in righteousness. Oppression – be far from you! Fear – be far from you! Yes, terror will not come near you, nor will you be afraid.

If anyone dares to stir up strife against you, it is not from me! Those who challenge you will go down in defeat.

See, I am the one who created the craftsman who fans the coals into a fire and forges a weapon fit for its purpose, and I am the one who created the destroyer to destroy.

But I promise you, no weapon meant to hurt you will succeed, and you will refute every accusing word spoken against you.

This is the inheritance of Yahweh’s servants, and their vindication is from me, says Yahweh.

Isaiah 54:10-17 (The Passion Translation)

May the Lord bless you, and keep you; may His face shine on you and be gracious to you; may He look upon you and give you peace.
