Discussion for Proverbs 6:19

  • Tyrek Jackson for verse 19
    Interesting right.... You see the word 'that' in italic formation... that normally mean that the word was not found in the original text... why not? Why was 'that' not found in the original text... I believe that when God speaks of a false witness, He is not making emphasis on flesh and blood but on the context and structure of the witness testimony itself... now i could be wrong but study I will do.. So here is a simplified question... what if God sees a 'false witness' as a testimony and not a person or a living being?
  • I am attempting to find why I do this at times?in
