Proverbs 29:1 An EU

Proverbs 29:1-A man who hardens his neck after much reproof Will suddenly be broken beyond remedy.

Does that mean once a man hardens his neck there is no hope either in this life or the next? How does the Universalist see this passage?

As wisdom applicable to this life but not necessarily extending into the next.

So that would imply that there is remedy in the next life. Right?


I wouldn’t read any eschatological meanings into Proverbs. Some people use Ecclesiastes 11:3 in support of ET:

If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.

Do you really think, this is what Solomon meant?
