Proverbs I

Proverbs  I

Whatever our disbeliefs we do not read the bible enough. Over the months I have been spending a few minutes a day reading  the Old  Testament’s Proverbs. Here are a few of my favourites.

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.

Keep thee  from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman. Lust not after beauty in thine heart;neither let her take thee with her eyelids. (This be tough)

A wise son maketh a glad father:but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother.

He that gathereth in the summer is a wise son; but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame.

As a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, so is a fair woman which is without dicretion. (see above)

A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine; but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosever is deceived thereby is not wise.( Uhm)

He that goeth about as a tale bearer revealeth secrets; therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

Whoso curseth his father and mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness(right on)

The glory of young men is their strength, and the beauty of old men is the grey head. (Me, I’m bald)
