MM Sunday Scripture

Also to punish the just is not good, nor to strike princes for equity.
-Proverbs 17:26

(other translations word this as 'attacking a prince for ruling honestly' -how often have we seen that)


  1. This is becoming a nice little feature.
    And you are right, too often are sovereigns attacked for their honesty, and their good deeds are too often forgotten.

    1. or maligned, when Abraham Lincoln frees the slaves it is considered a great thing, when Alexander II frees the serfs it is said to be riddled with problems

  2. I possess and read the English Standard Version Bible. ESV says, "To impose a fine on a righteous man is not good, nor to strike the noble for their uprightness."
