Discussion for Proverbs 12:21

  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 21
    There shall no evil control the just. A righteous man may fall seven times , but he always gets up. Evil will slay the wicked because he does not walk by the light of this world. Jesus said there are 12 hours to the day so walk by the light of the day and you will not stumble.
