Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
Do not ye become like a horse, like a mule, without discernment, - With the bit and bridle of his mouth, hast thou to restrain him, - He will not come near unto thee.
But, I, was brutish, and could not perceive, Like the beasts, had I become before thee.
Understand, ye brutish among the people, And, ye dullards, when will ye show discretion?
Surely, more brutish, am, I, than any man, nor doth, the understanding of a son of earth, pertain to me;
An ox knoweth, his owner, And an ass his masters crib, - Israel, doth not know, My people doth not consider.
Every son of earth hath become too brutish to discern, Every goldsmith, hath been put to shame by a graven image, - For a falsehood, is his molten image, Seeing there is no breath in them.
1 Corinthians 2:14
But, a man of the soul, doth not welcome the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness unto him, and he cannot get to know them, because, spiritually, are they examined;
The impious hath said in his heart - There is no God! They have acted corruptly, they have done an abominable deed, there is none that doeth good.
For it is seen that, the wise, die, Together with the dullard, and the brutish, do they perish, And leave, to others, their wealth:
I have said to the boasters, Do not boast, And to the lawless, Do not lift up a horn;
How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and, scoffers, in scoffing, delight them? and, dullards, hate knowledge?
Unattainable to a foolish man, are the dictates of wisdom, in the gate, he openeth not his mouth.
But God said unto him - Simple one! on this very night, they are asking, thy soul, from thee; The things, then, which thou hast prepared, whose shall they be?
Wicked men, consider not justice, but, they who seek Yahweh, consider everything.
