And, behold, the word of the LORD came UNTO HIM, SAYING, THIS SHALL NOT BE THINE HEIR; BUT HE THAT SHALL COME FORTH OUT OF THINE OWN BOWELS SHALL BE THINE HEIR. Gen 15:4 KJVS
All these WHICH WERE CHOSEN TO BE PORTERS IN THE GATES WERE TWO HUNDRED AND TWELVE. THESE WERE RECKONED BY THEIR GENEALOGY IN THEIR VILLAGES, WHOM DAVID AND SAMUEL THE SEER DID ORDAIN IN THEIR SET OFFICE. 1Chr 9:22 KJVS
How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is WITH US? LO, CERTAINLY IN VAIN MADE HE IT; THE PEN OF THE SCRIBES IS IN VAIN. 9 The wise MEN ARE ASHAMED, THEY ARE DISMAYED AND TAKEN: LO, THEY HAVE REJECTED THE WORD OF THE LORD; and what wisdom is in them? Jer 8:8-9 KJVS
