Passage: Proverbs 22:28

Proverbs 22:28 – Respect for Boundaries

Summary

Don't steal another person's land.

Analysis

This saying refers to moving a boundary marker. Archaeologists have found such markers, which often had a curse written upon them, announcing that various evils would fall upon anyone moving the marker! See also 23:10-11. Concern for the widow, the orphan, and the poor was a mark of wisdom literature in Israel and also throughout the ancient world.
