From The Bible This Came



FROM THE BIBLE THIS CAME
King James Version
Judges
 C-9-V-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The trees went forth on a time
to anoint a King over them
they said unto the olive tree
reign  thou over us.
But the Olive tree said unto them
should I leave my fatness where with
by me they honor God and man
And go to be promoted over the trees?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And the trees said to the Fig tree
come thou and reign over us
`but the Fig tree said unto them.
Should I forsake my sweetness and
my good fruit and go to be
promoted  over the trees?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
Then said the trees unto the vine
come thou and reign over us.
And the vine said unto them.Should I leave
my wine which cheereth God and Man
and go to be promoted over the trees?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Then said the trees unto the bramble
come thou and reign over us
and the bramble said unto the trees.
if in truth ye anoint me king over you.
Then come and put your trust in my shadow
and if not let fire come out of the bramble
and devour the cedars of Lebanon.
from Bible This Came
