Discussion for Proverbs 24:21

  • GOD IS KING AND KING IS GOD!
  • Liberal politicians or progressive ones that are vacillating in their ways and thoughts perhaps?

    When I read, "meddle not with them that are given to change" it sounded (s) to me like it;s saying don't get involved with them that are emotionally unstable. "given to change" they succumb to changing.
