Why is Wisdom of Solomon shown with the King James Bible?

1 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and there shall no torment touch them.

2 In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die: and their departure is taken for misery,

3 And their going from us to be utter destruction: but they are in peace.

4 For though they be punished in the sight of men, yet is their hope full of immortality.

5 And having been a little chastised, they shall be greatly rewarded: for God proved them, and found them worthy for himself.

6 As gold in the furnace hath he tried them, and received them as a burnt offering.

7 And in the time of their visitation they shall shine, and run to and fro like sparks among the stubble.

8 They shall judge the nations, and have dominion over the people, and their Lord shall reign for ever.

9 They that put their trust in him shall understand the truth: and such as be faithful in love shall abide with him: for grace and mercy is to his saints, and he hath care for his elect.

10 But the ungodly shall be punished according to their own imaginations, which have neglected the righteous, and forsaken the Lord.

11 For whoso despiseth wisdom and nurture, he is miserable, and their hope is vain, their labours unfruitful, and their works unprofitable:

12 Their wives are foolish, and their children wicked:

13 Their offspring is cursed. Wherefore blessed is the barren that is undefiled, which hath not known the sinful bed: she shall have fruit in the visitation of souls.

14 And blessed is the eunuch, which with his hands hath wrought no iniquity, nor imagined wicked things against God: for unto him shall be given the special gift of faith, and an inheritance in the temple of the Lord more acceptable to his mind.

15 For glorious is the fruit of good labours: and the root of wisdom shall never fall away.

16 As for the children of adulterers, they shall not come to their perfection, and the seed of an unrighteous bed shall be rooted out.

17 For though they live long, yet shall they be nothing regarded: and their last age shall be without honour.

18 Or, if they die quickly, they have no hope, neither comfort in the day of trial.

19 For horrible is the end of the unrighteous generation.

    The Wisdom of Solomon has a great deal of thought-provoking content. I am writing a book of prayers based on its various messages, even the negative chapters

    There are so many stories and so many areas of serious contemplation in the Bible, and the Apocrypha is part of the Bible, that I use all of the books of the Bible to increase the awareness of God in my life. Jesus was a Jew who was educated by scriptures. His scriptures were not the New Testament, which was written well after His death. He learned from what wass available at his time.
  • P Bowers on Wisdom of Solomon 3
    Every birthday since age 55, I have asked God for Wisdom, and the discernment to know when to use it. God has given me what I asked for. I slacked off for awhile, but Dec.30,2015, God used my accident on my icy steps to garner my undivided attention. 3 months of non weight bearing, major orthopedic surgery to repair my shattered left ankle and fractured shin bone, 2 steel plates and many screws

    Is this meaning that if you are born from an unmarried couple or a ** that you have no chance to become pure or proceed into Heaven?
  • Xaphrious Phoenix on Wisdom of Solomon 3:10
    With all the new technology, along with the Transhumannizim with genics we are now living in the days of Noah, where all flesh will be corrupted. With passions and desires for fantasy these people are being used to create our fantasy and nightmares. King Solomon nailed it on the head with his writing Wisdom of Solomon 3:10 says it clearly But the who don 't believe in the Creator shall be punished according to their own imaginations, which have neglected the obedient of the law of Moses, and forsaken Yahuwah.
  • Wisdom of soloman has always been my favorite I don 't want to die quick but we don 't no when
  • This stuff is powerful and yet so convicting and Holy!!! No wonder they put it out! this stuff can turn your world upside down and take u to another Level of Faith if we are willing to live up to the standards that God has written and walked out for us! I can imagine now why they would of thought Jesus was crazzzzyyyy!!! Oh no He aint, his just Pure!! and life was so confronting to the wicked yet saving for those who would humble themselves! All i can say, HIS WORDS ARE TRUE! Put it back in!!!!!!
  • Travis Waller on Wisdom of Solomon 3
    I can see why the people didn't want this book in the Bible. But by taking this away it makes the Bible incomplete. The words says man should not add or take away from the word. Taking this out is taking away from the word. This book is very interesting and should be added back. It gives a whole new look at religion and life. I will be printing these books off and when we have Bible study in my home, these too will be studied. You may or may not agree. But it sheds new light on my faith and soloman was a man of god. There's no reason this book should not be in the KJV...
