Why is Wisdom of Solomon shown with the King James Bible?

1 Loue righteousnesse, yee that be iudges of the earth: thinke of the Lord with a good (heart) and in simplicitie of heart seeke him.

2 For hee will bee found of them that tempt him not: and sheweth himselfe vnto such as doe not distrust him.

3 For froward thoughts separate from God: and his power when it is tryed, reprooueth the vnwise.

4 For into a malitious soule wisedome shall not enter: nor dwell in the body that is subiect vnto sinne.

5 For the holy spirit of discipline will flie deceit, & remoue from thoughts that are without vnderstanding: and will not abide when vnrighteousnesse commeth in.

6 For wisedome is a louing spirit: and will not acquite a blasphemour of his words: for God is witnesse of his reines, and a true beholder of his heart, and a hearer of his tongue.

7 For the spirit of the Lord filleth the world: and that which containeth all things hath knowledge of the voice.

8 Therefore he that speaketh vnrighteous things, cannot be hid: neither shal vengeance, when it punisheth. passe by him.

9 For inquisition shall be made into the counsels of the vngodly: and the sound of his words, shall come vnto the Lord, for the manifestation of his wicked deedes.

10 For the eare of iealousie heareth al things: and the noise of murmurings is not hid.

11 Therefore beware of murmuring, which is vnprofitable, and refraine your tongue from backbiting: for there is no word so secret that shall goe for nought: and the mouth that belieth, slayeth the soule.

12 Seeke not death in the errour of your life: and pull not vpon your selues destruction, with the workes of your hands.

13 For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the liuing.

14 For he created all things, that they might haue their being: and the generations of the world were healthfull: and there is no poyson of destruction in them: nor the kingdome of death vpon the earth.

15 For righteousnesse is immortall.

16 But vngodly men with their workes, and words called it to them: for when they thought to haue it their friend, they consumed to nought, and made a couenant with it, because they are worthy to take part with it.

    I heard that there were more than 66 books in the bible but i really never seach about it. So i did yesterday After a little I found the apocrypha, i am really interested to read this book Great job to revealed those books. Thx
  • Tif D
    I'm so inspired that the apocrypha is here and acknowledged as being an original part of the bible. I read elsewhere that Webster of websters dictionary is responsible for the removal of it in 1885. There are some allusions to the Knights of Templar and the Masons also being involved in removing it, and the Vatican.

    The message to me is clear. Adultery kills. The wise man who pursues God will know this However, It is a tall but manageable task to keep ones self in peace. Knowledge Is peace. As well Knowledge Is also Hell. For with much wisdom IS much sadness, for those who increase themselves in wisdom DO increase sorrow.
  • Shepherd
    those who hv removed those are thieves... and destroyeric mind the wish human kind to prosper..... so they took our stars of wisdom..... but now we want it back
  • Nicodemus Machuki
