YE shall not steal. Let him that stole, steal

no more.


Every one that stealeth shall be cut off. curse (of the Lord) it shall enter into the house of the thief.

By stealing shall the land mourn.

When thou sawest a thief, then thou consentedst with him but I will reprove thee. Whosp is partner with a thief hateth his own soul. In the heavens, no thief approacheth.

Lord who shall dwell in thy holy hill He that doeth not evil to his neighbour.

Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.

Some violently take away flocks, and feed thereof. He that killeth a beast shall make it good.

He shall restore that which he took violently


Some remove the land-marks. Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's land mark, which they of old have set in thine inheritance.

Remove not the ancient land-mark which the fathers have set; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless.

Cursed be he that removeth his neighbour's land-mark: and all the people shall say, Amer.

Be vigilant.



Watch thou in all things. Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temp


Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.

Let us watch and be sober.

Be watchful, and strengthen the things that remain.

Blessed is he that watcheth.

Watch, for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Blessed are those servants whom the Lord, when he cometh, shall find watching.

Watch ye, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.



A man shall not be established by wickedness. Sin is a reproach to any people.

The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the Lord.

The mouth of the wicked poureth out evil things.

The wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. The fear of the wicked, it shall come upon him. The lamp of the wicked shall be put out. The expectation of the wicked shall perish. The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord.

The wicked shall not be unpunished. The wicked is driven away in his wickedness. The wicked shall fall by his own wickedness. The wicked is reserved to the day of destruction.

God is angry with the wicked every day. The wicked will he destroy. Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest; this shall be the portion of their cup.

The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord.

Wickedness overthroweth the sinner. God overthroweth the wicked for their wickedness. The wicked are overthrown and are not.

The Lord is far from the wicked. Salvation is far from the wicked.

Sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. My son,if sinners entice thee,consent thou not. If ye shall still do wickedly, ye shall be consumed.

Woe unto the wicked! it shall be ill with him : for the reward of his hands shall be given him. Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate.

When a wicked man dieth, his expectation shall perish.

Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end.



THE fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding.

The fear of the Lord that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding.

Happy is the man that findeth wisdom and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandize of it is better than the merchandize of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her.

Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun. For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it.

Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard. Wisdom is better than

weapons of war.

A man shall be commended according to his wisdom.

Keep sound wisdom. Fools despise wisdom. Wisdom excelleth folly as far as light excelleth darkness.

Say unto wisdom, Thou art my sister; and call understanding thy kinswoman.

A wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment.

The words of wise men are heard in quiet. A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding will attain unto wise counsels.

The law of the wise is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

The well-spring of wisdom is as a flowing brook.

Understanding is a well-spring of life unto him that hath it.

Good understanding giveth favour.

He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul; he that keepeth understanding shall find good. I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness.

The fool shall be servant to the wise in heart. He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed. The Lord give thee wisdom. The Lord give thee understanding in all things.

If any man lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Walk in wisdom towards them that are with out, redeeming the time.
