“The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.”
King James Version (KJV)
12:11 Nails - Piercing into men's dull minds, which make powerful and abiding impressions in them. Masters - By the teachers of God's church, appointed of God for that work. Shepherd - From Christ, the great Shepherd of the church in all ages.
