 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

poetryofadove

You shall keep His statutes,

And always keep in mind;

Of sticking to your roots,

Mix breeding any kind.

 

You shall not sow your field,

More than one type of seed;

Never to mix your yield,

Sow only what you need.

 

Men who lie with a slave,

A harlot of the street;

Diseases from the grave,

Cause him wrath in defeat.

 

He shall rue to the Lord,

Confessing for his guilt;

Repentance not ignored,

Causing sin to be built.

 

What you come in the land,

Plant any tree for food;

Forbidden on the sand,

Not eaten to be rude.

 

It is a holy place,

Where you will praise the Lord;

And where He shines His grace,

To be in one accord.

 

 Eat the flesh but no blood,

From creatures that you eat;

Washing away the crud,

That maybe on the meat.

 

No tattoos on your skin,

Cuts that would make you dead;

Consider it a sin,

A harlot in your bed.

 

Keep the Sabbath holy,

For the One you revere;

True God one and only,

Reverent and sincere.

 

Observe all His statutes,

All His commands and rules;

Through all godly pursuits,

Act not like pagan fools.
