News Item 133. Mishlei 14-35 (Competence)

This new proverb in the Mishlei section uses the analogy of a king to illustrate the idea of competence. The king symbolizes anyone in a leadership role who looks to others to provide services that will achieve worthwhile goals. In our society the king might be an employer or project leader. It might be a father or mother who are constantly interacting with their children or a teacher who is interacting with his students. But it may also be our Creator who put us this into this world and has given us high and noble goals.
