Proverbs 6 – Warnings against folly

It deserves to be repeated (and needed).


12 A troublemaker and a villain,
    who goes about with a corrupt mouth,
13  who winks maliciously with his eye,
    signals with his feet
    and motions with his fingers,
14  who plots evil with deceit in his heart—
    he always stirs up conflict.
15 Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant;
    he will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy.

16 There are six things the Lord hates,
    seven that are detestable to him:
17  haughty eyes,
    a lying tongue,
    hands that shed innocent blood,
18  a heart that devises wicked schemes,
    feet that are quick to rush into evil,
19  a false witness who pours out lies
    and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

    Shakespeare’s quote easily describes psychopaths. Or sadists.

    Both of which over-populate the corridors of power and influence these days.

    Excellent reminder, Stella. I love scripture with particularly current application. I found one recently that I like. In the Douay-Rheims Bible it is Psalms 24:4:
    Let all them be confounded that act unjust things without cause.
    I pray this verse daily in regard to liberals. Interestingly, it is not in the King James Version, or in other Catholic versions of the Bible.

      great verse with strong meaning.

      check this “thing without cause”

      Police were called to Louisiana’s Oberlin High School on February 20 after a student suggested that a “math symbol looked like a gun.”

      The incident occurred approximately one week after 17 people were shot and killed at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

      The Sacramento Bee reported that the symbol was widely discussed and one student’s comments that the square root symbol “looked like a gun” fueled speculation of a “terroristic threat.”

      The numbering of the Psalms can vary, depending upon which ancient OT manuscripts were used for translation. Douay-Rheims has this as Psalm 24. In other translations, it is Psalm 25. Here is Psalm 25: 3 in the Revised Standard version. The second half of verse 3 is similar to D-R 24:4:

      Yea, let none that wait for thee be put to shame;
      let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.

      Here is KJV for Psalm 25:3:

      Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
