    Proverbs 30:5 "Every word of God is pure,he is a shield to them that put their trust in him." The SACRED SCRIPTURES are not futile, does no harm, does not return void, and does not hinder the winning of souls.The scriptures rebuke,correct.I would rather be wounded by a friend (Jesus) that kissed by those that follow Satan.V.6"Add thou not to his word, lest he reprove you and you be found a liar"

    This proverb verse 33 teaches me that we should not be reminding others of what they did wrong but is good to tell them of what they can do good
  • Mr. Smith
    vs 21-22, Compare Eccl 10:7 (servants on horseback), Even the EARTH is troubled and revolts when people let their sense realm reign over their spirit realm. Solomon calls this EVIL. Paul calls it "sowing to the flesh" and then "of the flesh, reap corruption". It's the law of the boomerang, what we send out comes back, what we sow, we reap. Jesus is the answer. We must walk as he walked.
