Are 'proverbs' direct promises and rules, or are they practical wisdom representing generalized truths?


Proverbs 1:1 - 33

ESV - 1 The proverbs of Solomon, son of David, king of Israel: 2 To know wisdom and instruction, to understand words of insight.

The latter; and in the way you framed your question, there're very-very few of those - if in fact there are any?

Many of we sincere believers tend to personalize many biblical promises, which are generalized to the church herself - or the the chosen nation, Israel and his children.

Are not all believers in Christ considered to be the church ?, Don't we also benefit from the blessings of the Jews, being gentiles? Please help me understand the answer to the question. Thank You
