Oh yes I know what happen, I was right, this is my favourite proverb. but I was looking for the verse above and so I c what happened. FunnyLOLhaHa

    I don't know how I made the mistake but it the next proverb that i frequently read and love; not that i don't also love or like this one, it is just that I like the other one better maybe I like to think and or i just think that I do think of God's word day and night. I think that i do but I don' dwell on it because I still have to do other things and they are all good or Okay I suppose;

    Proverbs 1 teaches us to be obedient to God by reading and meditating on His word in order to gain spiritual knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. When we obey God, it is easy to obey our earthly father. To God be the glory. Amen.
  • Eliiah
    For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold, oppression: for righteousness, but behold a cry. Have ye not read what David did, when he was hungry, and they that were with him: How he entered into the house of God, and did eat the show bread, which was not lawful for him to eat, neither for them which were with him, but only for the priests? Or have ye not read in the law, how that on the sabbath dayS the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? But they counted our life a pastime, and our time here a market for gain: for, say they, we must be getting every way, though it be by evil means. Hear ye now, O house of David: Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also? Son of man, these are the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city: Saying, When will the new moon be gone, that we may sell corn? and the Sabbath, that we may set forth wheat, making the supply small, and the demand great, and falsifying the prices and scales by deceit? He is a merchant, the scales of deceit are in his hand: he loves to oppress.

    It is simple yet profound...anyone can relate and understand God's teachings in Proverbs. My prodigal son in jail and many inmates are reading and studying the Book each chapter for every day of the month...the word is read daily..along with other studies...praise God!
