Why does the spelling look unusual?
Whoso loueth instruction, loueth knowledge: but he that hateth reproofe, is brutish.
A good man obtaineth fauour of the Lord: but a man of wicked deuices will he condemne.
A man shall not bee established by wickednesse: but the roote of the righteous shall not be mooued.
A vertuous woman is a crowne to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed, is as rottennesse in his bones.
The thoughts of the righteous are right: but the counsels of the wicked are deceit.
The words of the wicked are to lie in waite for blood: but the mouth of the vpright shall deliuer them.
The wicked are ouerthrowen, and are not: but the house of the righteous shall stand.
A man shall be commended according to his wisedome: but hee that is of a peruerse heart, shall be despised.
Hee that is despised and hath a seruant, is better then he that honoureth himselfe, and lacketh bread.
A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruell.
Hee that tilleth his land, shall bee satisfied with bread: but he that followeth vaine persons, is void of vnderstanding.
The wicked desireth the net of euill men: but the roote of the righteous yeeldeth fruit.
The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lippes: but the iust shall come out of trouble.
A man shall bee satisfied with good by the fruit of his mouth, and the recompence of a mans hands shall bee rendred vnto him.
The way of a foole is right in his owne eyes: but he that hearkeneth vnto counsell, is wise.
A fooles wrath is presently knowen: but a prudent man couereth shame.
He that speaketh trueth, sheweth foorth righteousnesse: but a false witnesse, deceit.
There is that speaketh like the pearcings of a sword: but the tongue of the wise is health.
The lippe of trueth shall bee established for euer: but a lying tongue is but for a moment.
Deceit is in the heart of them that imagine euill: but to the counsellours of peace, is ioy.
There shall no euill happen to the iust: but the wicked shall bee filled with mischiefe.
Lying lippes are abomination to the Lord: but they that deale truely, are his delight.
A prudent man concealeth knowledge: but the heart of fooles proclaimeth foolishnesse.
The hand of the diligent shall beare rule: but the slouthfull shall bee vnder tribute.
Heauinesse in the heart of man maketh it stoope: but a good word maketh it glad.
The righteous is more excellent then his neighbour: but the way of the wicked seduceth them.
The slouthfull man rosteth not that which he tooke in hunting: but the substance of a diligent man is precious.
In the way of righteousnesse is life, and in the path-way thereof there is no death.

God knows our love for our pets and animals.
He made them for us to love and care for.

I am so thankful that God has given us the Bible to help us through this life. We couldn't make it without it! God has truly blessed me and my family and I have to get back to where I was. It seems like life takes us down the wrong path (if we let it) and itís hard to find our way back, especially when we wait so long to try to find our way back!

If you want to live them, live a righteous life. Righteousness = life, while wickedness = death.
CG Clark's Proverbs Chapter 12 comment on 11/03/2012, 4:51pm...
The diligent study of the word of God, the seeking of knowledge will not only enlighten one on God only, but also on the world we are in, the deeper the knowledge the brighter the light shines on the darkness of the world. The deeper one can see in the cracks the wiser one can be on the evil of the world and the deceptions that the church has except from the world of media and education.

Susan Dalton. Thank you for that word. Its good to be in Christ. God bless each of you. We are the body. I pray we continue to build our faith and unite in Christ. Evil triumph when good men do nothing.
