“There is no head aboue the head of a serpent, and there is no wrath aboue the wrath of an enemie.”
King James Version (KJV)
12. The feare of the Lord is the beginning of his loue: and faith is the beginning of cleauing vnto him. 13. [Giue mee] any plague, but the plague of the heart: and any wickednesse, but the wickednesse of a woman. 14. And any affliction, but the affliction from them that hate me: and any reuenge, but the reuenge of enemies. 15. There is no head aboue the head of a serpent, and there is no wrath aboue the wrath of an enemie. 16. I had rather dwell with a lyon and a dragon, then to keepe house with a wicked woman. 17. The wickednesse of a woman changeth her face, and darkeneth her countenance like sackecloth. 18. Her husband shall sit among his neighbours: and when hee heareth it, shall sigh bitterly.
