|In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil, |
but a foolish man devours all he has.
|There is treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up. |
|There is precious treasure and oil in the dwelling of the wise, |
But a foolish man swallows it up.
|Proverbs 21:20 |
MacDonald, W., & Farstad, A. (1997, c1995). Believer's Bible Commentary : Old and New Testaments (Pr 21:20). Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to your unfailing love;
according to your great compassion
blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
and cleanse me from my sin.
Psalm 51:1-2 (NIV)
