    The word that come from our mouth are soul food so be wise in what we say to another
  • Scott on Proverbs 11:30
    The Basic English Bible translation is jarringly different from the other translations, and in my opinion, wrong how does it get "violent behaviour takes away souls " from "he that winneth souls is wise "? Compare with all of the other translations. Where did the violence them come from? How could Basic turn a basically evangelic verse into such a negative expression?
  • HARRY ALLISON on Proverbs 11:30
