Daily Bible Nugget #534, Proverbs 22:5

 

The Nugget:

Pro 22:5  Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them. (KJV)

Pro 22:5  Thorns and snares are in the way of the crooked; whoever guards his soul will keep far from them. (ESV)

Pro 22:5  Thorns and snares are in the way of the pervert; he who guards his soul is far from them. (ECB, exegeses companion Bible)

Pro 22:5  Thorns and nets are in the way of the twisted: he who keeps watch over his soul will be far from them. (BBE, Bible in Basic English)

Pro 22:5  Crooks walk down a road full of thorny traps. Stay away from there! (CEV, Contemporary English Version)

 

My Comment:

Sister Cris Jackson posted the following on Facebook this morning:

WATCH OUT FOR THOSE SNARES: “Thorns and snares lie on the path of the perverse; he who guards his soul stays far from them” (Proverbs 22:5). When we walk in darkness and not the light of God’s Word, when we walk contrary to His Word not allowing Him to direct our paths, Satan is laying snares for us to fall into. All kinds of difficulties and trouble lie in the way or path of the perverse-wicked-evil person. The person who keeps themselves clean avoids them.

Glory unto God, who removed my feet from the net and snares of the enemy! He sets them on solid ground. Who teaches my hands to war and separates evil from me. Who has chosen the right way that I should walk in it. “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” Bless the Lord oh my soul, and all that is within me. Bless His holy name. Praise ye the Lord.” (Isaiah 30:21).

 

I posted on Facebook the cross references for two very significant Bible studies on the subject of snares from the Ultimate Cross Reference Treasury:
