For A Piece Of Bread?

“For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: to keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.”  Proverbs 6:23-26  (KJB)

The Bitter Path of Hell

“My son, attend unto my wisdom, bow thine ear to my understanding: that thou mayest regard discretion, and thy lips may keep knowledge.
For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil: but her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a twoedged sword. Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, thou canst not know.”  Proverbs 5:1-6  (KJB)

Hear The Instruction Of A Father

“Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
He taught me also, and said unto me, ‘Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.’ ”  Proverbs 4:1-4  (KJB)

ON A SIDE NOTE:

We the people of the United States are celebrating 244 years as a nation, and I pray all who come here today, and those who are citizens of the United States of America will remember the God of this nation.  He is the Creator of all that is, the seen and the unseen.

I thank Him for His word, and His work in this nation and the nations of this world. He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for our sins, and He died on that cruel old cross, was buried, and He came out of the grave alive.  The only hope for the U. S. of A. and any nation is to turn from your sins and rebellion against God and His word, and trust the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior, Lord and God.

Be Not Afraid…

Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken. Proverbs 3:25-26  (KJB)

“Do not be afraid of sudden terror or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes, for the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” Proverbs 3:25-26 (ESV)

The Never Satisfied; More Of The Godly Wife

“The horseleach hath two daughters, crying, ‘Give, give.’ There are three things that are never satisfied, yea, four things say not, It is enough: the grave; and the barren womb; the earth that is not filled with water; and the fire that saith not, ‘It is enough.’
The eye that mocketh at his father, and despiseth to obey his mother, the ravens of the valley shall pick it out, and the young eagles shall eat it.”  Proverbs 30:15-17  (KJB)

THE GODLY WIFE

“Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come. She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness. She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”  Proverbs 31:23-28

A Fitly Spoken Word

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.
As an earring of gold, and an ornament of fine gold, so is a wise reprover upon an obedient ear.
As the cold of snow in the time of harvest, so is a faithful messenger to them that send him: for he refresheth the soul of his masters.”  Proverbs 25:11-13  (KJB)

Reap What You Sow

“He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.”  Proverbs 22:8 (KJB)

“Whoever sows injustice will reap calamity, and the rod of his fury will fail.” (ESV)

“He that soweth iniquity shall reap calamity; And the rod of his wrath shall fail.” (ASV)

Justness And Righteousness

“A divine sentence is in the lips of the king: his mouth transgresseth not in judgment.
A just weight and balance are the LORD’S: all the weights of the bag are His work.
It is an abomination to kings to commit wickedness: for the throne is established by righteousness.”   Proverbs 16:10-12  (KJB)
