Reading the Bible is important to understand much of the literature in our canon. Having read the whole Bible in every major version about about 200 times in my life, I encountered several verses in those readings that you most likely will not hear preachers use in their Sunday sermons. I decided to list a few of those for today’s entry. Though I’ve read every major translation, these are from the King James Version.
A Tried and true philosophy: Ecclesiastes 10:19: “Money answereth all things.”
The Work of a teacher: I Thessalonians 5:14: “comfort the feebleminded.”
When life is tough: Proverbs 31:6-7: “Give strong drink unto him that is ready to perish, and wine unto those that be of heavy hearts. Let him drink and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more.”
I’ll likely list some more verses like these in the future. I have book signings in New Orleans in the French Quarter Saturday if the weather is good. My calendar is filling up so fast. I think things are going to escalate once Stories of the Confederate South comes out with Pelican sometime in October.
