Discussion for Proverbs 8:23

  • Margie Ann on Proverbs 8:23
    Thank you for all the KJV versions, answers, dictionaries, comments. Very enlightening for The Lord 's Bible Study, every Th 2-4pm. Adds to the words written down already, for a clearer understanding for persons in the Bible Study for which several are Spanish speaking, and the others haven 't a clue. May God richly Bless your endeavors....5 27 2015
