 The Lord’s mouth does not betray justice Proverbs 16:10-15 The one who is behind justice is the Lord for he makes honest scales and balances and all the weights in his bag are of his making. The link is between the weights and balances of I AM, with the King administering the justice according to accurate weights and balances.

God establishes his sovereign and moral rule through the King. We pray in the Lord’s prayer, that “thy kingdom, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven” The Kings moral sensibilities and the source of his power, is from I AM. I AM being sovereign. He is above human plans and thoughts and that we are to trust him and not self. We are to trust him in both word and deed. He is moral and works out everything to its proper moral end.

The King has the power of life and death and he is realised in the person of Christ. We, his disciples have to be like him. Christians follow the ultimate nobility, and thus must imitate our KING! A King or any leader of men, whether elected or assumed in a different manner, is there at the behest of I AM. If such a person’s leadership strays from the justice expected from a representative of I AM, then he ceases to have any moral authority to that leadership and should be challenged.

Some pointers on the Wicked Woman and Marriage.

Wicked woman The way includes your character, disposition, orientation i.e something that God has to produce in your heart. The way is also how you live; who you associate with? The community you commune with, namely what and who shapes you. The way is also what you do and how you conduct yourself. Where are you headed? Towards life or towards death?

Conduct is the way of righteousness or wickedness; are we headed to death or to life? Conduct is the way of righteousness or wickedness, and destiny is where you find yourself eventually; deed eventually grows to destiny and conduct eventually leads to consequences.

The heart is at the center of all that we do Proverbs 4:20-23  It is imperative that we guard it zealously. The heart gives both spiritual and psychological direction. What you see, hear, listen etc influences you. The heart determines what we feel, think and eventually decide. It leads to debate inside one, on what is right or wrong. The more we take in evil, the less offended we become by it (sex, violence etc on TV). We get accustomed to it. This is the danger of not protecting the heart in what we listen and observe. The adulteress believes in Satan’s lie, that there are no consequences, no judgement, no ethical death. Those who believe in this are oxen led to the slaughter.

Folly of adultery Proverbs 5:1-23 Social and economic loss to foreigners and to the community. One weak link in the tradition of the family, can lead to the loss and squander of everything that went before it for the adulterer. In biblical ancient tradition, the adulterer becomes a slave to the husband of a woman who has acted unfaithfully.

Protection against adultery Proverbs 6:20-35 Identify yourself or symbolize yourself radically as to who you are and what you believe in. Outwardly, have signs that allow people to pick on your beliefs e.g a cross, wearing your marriage band etc. On the other hand, there should also be inward signs, that influence the outward, such as walking what you believe in; it will be a guard for you and against possible temptation. For example:

-         Look away from any situation likely to lead you to sin

-         Don’t look at sin, or even imagine it, but if you do, ask for forgiveness, there and there, do not entertain it; for once you do, it leaves the world of the imagination and enters the physical realm of sin!

 Adultery is far worse than prostitution; all you need for a prostitute is just a price (in this case, the example used is a loaf of bread). God is going to punish adultery because he upholds the moral order.

The wrath of a man that has suffered the agony of having an adulteress as a wife cannot be compensated, no matter how hard one tries. How can you compensate another mans pride, emotions and sexual identity? It brings personal shame and humiliation of loved ones and loss of respect in the larger community.

Parable of the good Samaritan

Rembrandt- The good Samaritan, Luke 10:25-37

Wisdom of marriage Proverbs 5:15-23 The verses emphasize the prudence of privacy against the folly of promiscuity. A father prays for his son to have a sexually satisfying wife. The words advocate the privacy of marriage to that of no marriage. It argues for virginity, monogamy and the privacy of marriage.

Intoxication of your wife. Marriage can be intoxicating and beautiful. It counteracts worldly teaching that promotes lustful and sexual propaganda.

The pharisee and the publican

Tissot- The pharisee and the publican, Luke 18:9-14


On how to determine if somebody detests you. If somebody detests you, they will never hear you correctly. If you want to know if someone has no respect for you, then discern whether they listen to you or to themselves

If you have wisdom, you are going to have prudence, and wisdom possesses knowledge and discretion. Fear of the Lord is to reject evil and a perverse mouth.
