VERSE

Ecclesiasticus 4:17

“For at the first she will walke with him by crooked wayes, and bring feare and dread vpon him, and torment him with her discipline, vntill she may trust his soule, and try him by her Lawes.”

King James Version (KJV)

Ecclesiasticus 4:17

14. They that serue her shall minister to the Holy one, and them that loue her, the Lord doth loue. 15. Who so giueth eare vnto her, shall iudge the nations, and he that attendeth vnto her, shall dwell securely. 16. If a man commit himselfe vnto her, he shall inherite her, and his generation shall hold her in possession. 17. For at the first she will walke with him by crooked wayes, and bring feare and dread vpon him, and torment him with her discipline, vntill she may trust his soule, and try him by her Lawes. 18. Then wil she returne the straight way vnto him, and comfort him, and shew him her secrets. 19. But if he goe wrong, she will forsake him, and giue him ouer to his owne ruine. 20. Obserue the opportunitie, and beware of euill, and be not ashamed when it concerneth thy soule.
