"Be Thou Clean"
(Truth of Politics and Economy: Ethics)
That has been a nice week.
It is so, since I myself feel like a movie star flying over the Middle East, making TV appearances in Tokyo, and kicking financial tycoons on Wall Street with the "Stress Test," in addition to enjoying the freshly leafy month of May with old and familiar figures here and there...
SECTION I: JAPANESE MAGAZINES
One of the most popular magazines in Japan, The Shukan Bunshun, conducted a survey on who female secretaries of national lawmakers recommend the next prime minister of Japan.
Today, in Tokyo, there are 400 female secretaries who work for National Diet members of various political parties. They were asked to nominate three candidates among incumbent lawmakers for the next prime minister of Japan.
The result is as follows with five points to the first candidate, three points to the second, and one to the third on recommendation by each secretary.
Mr. Ozawa is the head of the Democratic Party of Japan, the largest opposition party strongly supported by labour unions.
Mr. Taro ASo is incumbent Prime Minister of Japan, also the head of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan consistently supported by major companies, the most pro-America party.
It is a surprise that these female staff, each actually belonging to one of major political parties and working at the political center in Tokyo, overwhelmingly support the two key figures of the opposition party, Mr. Okada and Mr. Ozawa, against the incumbent Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso.
However, those female sectaries of politicians do not share the common view on politicians, policies, and politics with a majority of voters.
If those female employees work in local towns with less salary, they would surely change their views on those politicians, a kind of tribe living in the power center of Tokyo dealing with governmental billion yen on a daily base.
In the next general election to be held in August or September, in my feeling, I assume that the LDP will win 220 seats among 480 seats of the lower house of the Diet, though the party has now 303 seats. The DPJ will, however, advance to take 200 seats, though the party has only 113 seats now. The LDP and New Komeito will secure power to form the new Cabinet. Yet, my forecast on the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election was sunk by the Wall Street Debacle which negated the possibility of Mr. McCain's victory due to the racial preference among a majority of European American voters. Yet, a winner should be the spirit of democracy always in any election in Japan as well as in the U.S.
Anyway, the opposition to the coalition of the LDP and Komeito will be on the upturn after the general election, even if they should fail to make their dream come true seizing power, since it is the era of President Mr. Barack Obama.
SECTION II: Subprime Loan Crisis
There is still one doubt about the shock wave from Wall Street in September 2008.
If one million very rich and super rich Americans had purchased all the houses on which poor owners could not pay loan anymore in 2008, could have the 2008 Financial Crisis been stopped?
Are the subprime loan-contaminated financial instruments and goods truly the only decisive factor that caused the 2008 Financial Crisis?
Was their another timed explosion in the U.S. economy or on Wall Street?
One of clues is that even Toyota was duped in 2008 and could only sell one million-less cars in the year.
Toyota is not a band of fools; but the fact is that they failed in sales estimation for fiscal 2008, resulted in one-million less sales in terms of the number of cars.
Toyota must have trusted some analysts and economists the Japanese car giant must not.
Wall Street businesses must have too much pretended to trust some analysts and economists the American financial institutions have never trusted in their heart.
It is a matter of ethics.
In other word, the viruses called greed could proliferate but only until their host die.
If all the ethics have gone out of Wall Street, the greed should be also left alone for self-destruction.

If you become one of the elite of an organization everybody in the world envies, hates, or despises, you cannot be regarded as a clever man.
However, it is a little difficult to name all such organizations globally spotted.
So, only I can say to you is leave any organization you belong to, running and running far from it until you meet the God or Allah.
It is historically true that only those who fled from, or left, an organization or a community and spent a fairly long time alone in the desert could meet an Angel of a higher rank.
A man does not find an Angel in his brain cells but in front of him when the level of his mind activities is high or deep enough to see a very fine shadow of an Angel.
Anyway, first quit Toyota or GM and go to the desert to be saved eventually.
(Surely there is an Angel in Mexico, si c'est autour de la baie de Tokyo.
Luk 5:9 For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken:
Luk 5:10 And so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men.
Luk 5:11 And when they had brought their ships to land, they forsook all, and followed him.
Luk 5:12 And it came to pass, when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jesus fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.
Luk 5:13 And he put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will: be thou clean. And immediately the leprosy departed from him.

(From the Bay to the North of Tokyo)
"For They Shall See God"
(Finance, Media Reporting, and Politics of a Week)
In Japan, the media say "Hana-Kin" with jollity on Friday, since Hana means a wonderful thing like a flower and Kin is an abbreviation for "Kin-yobi," Friday.
Corporate workers try to finish the day's work quickly at 5 p.m. or so to enjoy the night of Friday.
Indeed, big cities in the world might look the same, especially, on Friday evening.
Yes, you can fly in the Friday evening to Afghanistan from New York to help poor Muslims there and come back to a New York office on Monday morning.
Truly, Friday evening and night can be a challenge if you are an employee of the Federal Reserve Bank.
SECTION I: FRB Stress Test Overview
The current loss rate of 9.1% in the US financial sector is truly comparable to those of the Great Depression Era 70 years ago.
(Click to enlarge.)
"In total, the estimated loan loss rates under the more adverse scenario are very high by historical standards. The two-year cumulative loss rate on total loans equals 9.1 percent in the more adverse scenario..."
Anyway, the above figure embodies our feeling and anxiety that this scale of the 2008 Wall Street Fall might have significance comparable to the 1930's Great Depression.
And, it also supports the idea that the core of the crisis is related to credit supply and credit guarantee not only in major US businesses, such as GM, but also consumers, such as GM employees, since loan is based on the concept of credibility.
In the worst case, if all the banks were wiped away, the U.S. Government could function as a bank to GM and GM employees; but the U.S. Government cannot function as GM and other businesses that employ so many consumers to produce millions of types of products and service.
(The financial sector produces only one type of products: financial instruments.)
SECTION II: Japanese Magazines
There are three types of magazines on sale in book stores and kiosks in railroad stations and so on in Japan.
The first type is of comic magazines. The second type is of women's magazines and various hobby and entertainment magazines. The third type is of social issues, business, economy, politics, and news reports.
One of the third type magazine has recently made a feature of the TV news reporting sector.
The magazine, named "SAPIO," argues that TV news reporting in Japan is facing a crisis.
A TV stations in Japan has in house journalists and reporters who earn high salary, such as 20 million yen ($200,000) per year, but they do not look like working hard and honestly. It is because a TV station often uses subcontractors and outside producing companies who even offer their staff to the news reporting section of a TV station. Those irregular reporters actually work for or in place of regular reporters of a TV station. Yet, those outside staff earn only humble salary, such as 4 million yen per year.
The point at issue is that this situation symbolizes the crisis of journalism and especially of the TV news reporting sector in Japan.
*** *** *** ***
Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso said yesterday in a Q&A session in the National Diet, "I married at the age of 43, but I have children; I have performed my duty."
But later in the Q&A session, Prime Minister Mr. Aso made correction, "I was wrong to have used the word 'duty,' since there are various people who cannot have children for various reasons."
Indeed, a falling birthrate is a serious issue in Japan.
Compared with graveness of this all-Japan issue, whether Mr. Aso will win the coming general election or not might be a minor question.
Anyway, I hope that you do not catch the swine influ.
That is all for today.
(C'est pourquoi je vous dis qu'ils sont irresponsables dans leur réclamant amour.
Mat 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
Mat 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.

"They Shall Obtain Mercy"
Today, the Japanese people have started to work as usual after at least four consecutive public holidays.
I had work to do and need to serve the God in the period, so that I did not join the national holiday mood.
And, late in the last night, a female newscaster referred to this series of long holidays, saying, "O-Baka Renkyu" instead of "O-Gata Renkyu," though perhaps only I could perceive the word, since O-Gata means "big" and Renkyu means "consecutive holidays" in Japanese.
But, "O-Baka" in Japanese means a big fool.
Indeed, fools respect holidays. Pious people respect history.
Anyway, I may be able to find a chance to go and take some pictures of Tokyo streets this weekend.

Though American financial institutions took back a huge amount of dollars from foreign markets since Sept. 2008, investment into America from foreign countries drastically declined in 2008.
This might be, however, a good chance to start to consider non-money economy of mankind.
Yet, let's check the data on money flowing in and out of the U.S. as the US Department of Commerce prepared it, since only this money flow can support the huge financial sector of the U.S.
Remember these huge amount of figures are only for indicating money.
A tiny portion of these figures might finally turn to be salary and pay you get. Yet, the value of your precious service and labour must not be based on these figures nobody can control.
Conversely, if nobody receives salary and pay in the form of money, no strange and uncontrollable figures would harm your life and your dignity. It is so since all of the salary and pay you are entitled to receive should be deposited in Heaven
As I mentioned before, without coins and bills, people can live normally as usual as if pretending they were using money.
You wake up and go to a coffee shop. Take a cup of coffee and go out to work in, say, a GM factory. Then work and have lunch at a hamburger shop. Then go back to work and finish it. You drop in an Wal-Mart shop to get some goods and foods. Then you go back to home and cook and eat. In this peaceful day, you do not need any money.
On a holiday, if you want a car, you go to a car dealer to get one. If you want a new house, you go to a real-estate office to get one. In this happy day, you do not need any money.
And, everybody will live like you. Even, the President of the United States of America will go to work to a GM factory and get goods at a Wall-Mart shop like you.
This is one example of a state of the non-money economy.
*** *** *** ***
My advice is that we respect the following equation:
[A total amount of bills and coins] = [Total value of goods and service]
Any amount of money created, used, transferred, and saved while exceeding the balance level of the above equation must be illegal.
However, truth is that as mankind has now ability to produce infinite number of goods and service activities, the amount of money exceeding the total amount of bills and coins can be also infinite.
Yet, acts of production are based on philosophy.
The worst Devil might be found not in money but in philosophy.
The only authentic philosophy is what you can deduce from the teaching of Jesus Christ.
(Pour dire la vérité, je ne suis pas un homme romantique, car j'aime la musique, ma fille.
Mat 5:2 And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
Mat 5:3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 5:4 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
Mat 5:5 Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Mat 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
Mat 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

"For I am a sinful man, O Lord"
SECTION I: "All-Night Nippon"
This morning around Tokyo, an NHK radio program presented an interesting guest.
The former president of Nippon Broadcasting System, Inc., who was once a very popular DJ in Japan.
Indeed, until 36 years ago or so, he was called "Kame-chan" as he was a midnight radio show host. The program was called "All-Night Nippon" or something like that. From late 1960's to early 1970's, Kame-chan made his great way into the stardom of the midnight radio show aimed at young people, mostly those who were studying hard midnight for university entrance examinations.
After leaving the radio personality position, he was consistently promoted in the company management to be president of Nippon Broadcasting System, Inc. Then he stood in the spotlight again in 2005, as Livedoor, a kind of IT-related company, tried to buy out the radio company. The target of Livedoor was however stocks of a great amount of Fuji Television Network, Inc. which the radio company held. Fuji TV had its subsidiary company, namely Nippon Broadcasting System, buy and hold its stocks as a management strategy.
It was a very controversial deal. The whole Japanese society hotly debated this M&A transaction, sine Livedoor purchased those stocks in a very doubtful manner and in an illegal way of book keeping.
And, it is said that Lehman Brothers financially helped Livedoor pursue their ambitious scheme of buying up the shares of Nippon Broadcasting System and Fuji TV.
it is said that Lehman Brothers offered 800 million dollars (80 billion yen) to Livedoor as funds to take the management right of the mainstream media company.
However, this scheme ended in the air with so much social objection and doubts rising on the Livedoor's business.
Yet, Livedoor could sell those stocks at higher prices to Fuji TV; Lehman Brothers also got big returns.
Moreover, many young people in Japan started to regard those involved in this incident as a kind of hero, since they got big profits through financial transactions. Young women also wanted to personally access foreign financial businesses, such as Lehman Brothers.
(Even a female TV newscaster looked excited on visiting the office of such a company in a new skyscraper in Tokyo.)
This was the situation around 2005 in Japan, especially in Tokyo.
Nonetheless, a year or so later, the president of Livedoor was arrested and prosecuted for illegal money handling.
And, last year, Lehman Brothers went bankrupt on Wall Street, and its subsidiary in Tokyo was virtually absorbed by Nomura Securities Co., Ltd.
And, Kame-chan, having pulled through the challenge in 2005, vacated the presidency, returning to his old workplace, a radio studio. So, NHK interviewed him in the early morning program, but not as a hero of 2005 but of around 1970.
I also once listened to Kame-chan in "All-Night Nippon." He was sophisticated. As I was not in Tokyo in those days, I thought that a Tokyo announcer was critically different from local radio announcers. "Kame-chan" was truly specifically sophisticated. So, I memorized him.
This morning, I found why. Kame-chan said that he had travelled to California to study media business for one year. It was when three years had passed since his entrance to the radio broadcasting company.
So, he came back to Japan to perform a radio program host in the midnight, targeting mainly high-school students or so studying hard at home late at midnight.
Finally, 36 years after leave from the table with a microphone above it, he came back still with an atmosphere of the California media business of late 1960's.
Through the radio this morning, he really sounded almost preciously as I had memorized decades ago. It was the voice of "All-Night Nippon," though its sophistication has no meaning any more for me, personally, since the show is still going on though without Lehman Brothers on Wall Street and its subsidiary in Tokyo.
SECTION II: The Lehmans
A little information on the Lehmans.
The Lehmans? They’ve Moved On. Sad? A Little.
Troubled Bank Is No Longer the Family’s Business
By Marissa Brostoff
Published September 18, 2008, issue of September 26, 2008.
The descendants of Mayer and Emanuel Lehman, two of the German Jewish brothers who lent the firm its name in the 1850s, remain a tightly knit clan ensconced in New York’s upper crust. But they have not been actively involved in the company since 1969, and family members say that they and their relatives are not even shareholders.
In a decision that shook Wall Street, Lehman Brothers, once a major investment bank, filed for bankruptcy on September 15.
“It’s not happy to see one’s family’s name in a situation like this, but I don’t think it’s going to in any way change their lifestyles,” said John Loeb, a great-grandson of Mayer Lehman.
Loeb’s lifestyle has not changed much in his 78 years: He still lives in his father’s mansion in Purchase, New York. A philanthropist and investment banker who served as a United States ambassador to Denmark, Loeb celebrated a recent birthday with a walk down a red carpet at Blenheim Palace, Winston Churchill’s ancestral home.
Now, how can we connect modern American Judaists, like the Lehmans, to the glory of Judaism and Israel?
Or, to what do they belong? To their material success in New York rather than to the glory of their ancestors of more than 2000 years ago?
If so, who in the world is more "Judaist-like" than American Judaists, I have to consider?

Luk 5:3 And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon's, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
Luk 5:4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.
Luk 5:5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.
Luk 5:6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.
Luk 5:7 And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
Luk 5:8 When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.

(Neither an Air Raid nor a Drill but a Greeting around Tokyo)
"Rise, Take up thy Bed, and Walk"
(Friends and Foes of Judaists since 1921)
A truly harming conspiracy is often found among those who have been regarded as friends of victims but not among friends of oppressors of the victims.
It can be so, since such false friends of the victims could be partially true friends of the oppressors of the victims.
For example, the victims could be European Juadaists and their false friends could be U.K. and U.S. leaders around WWII.
In my view, Churchill and Roosevelt were more enemies to Judaists than Japanese were during the Second World War.
I really think so, though the U.K. and the U.S. fought against Nazis militarily to eventually release many Judaists having been forced to work or die in death camps by Nazis and, on the other hand, the Empire of Japan allied itself to Germany militarily but not for ideology or a policy toward Judaists.
Very, very, ironically, Churchill and Roosevelt were more responsible for six million Judaist deaths around WWII than the Empire of Japan was.
So, Judaists today living in New York and Israel must totally change their views on Japan (and the Empire of Japan) if not on Churchill and Roosevelt.
Sir Martin Gilbert is a renowned British historian, as well as Winston Churchill's official biographer...
His latest book, Churchill and the Jews: A Lifelong Friendship, provides a road map of the statesman's intricate relationship with Jewish personalities and issues during his lifetime. It also unites Gilbert's two primary interests - Churchill and the Jewish people...
World Jewish Digest (WJD): Could you briefly explain the ways in which Churchill advocated for a Jewish homeland in Palestine?
Sir Martin Gilbert (SMG): His principal involvement began in 1921 when Prime Minister Lloyd George appointed him as colonial secretary with special responsibility for working out the rules and regulations of the Palestine mandate with regard to the Jewish national homeland. The first [notable] decision he made was to give the Zionists...monopoly power to modernize the country - to harness the waters of the Jordan and Yarkon rivers for electrical power, which not only would create employment for both Jews and Arabs, but also enable the Jews to begin to plan for substantial urban and rural development in Palestine. Although Churchill's decision led to fierce anti-Semitic outbursts against him in the British House of Commons, he unfailingly maintained it because he truly believed the Zionists would make something special of Palestine. He stressed over and over that it was the British government's duty, and to a certain extent the British taxpayer's obligation, to make sure that the Jews could build up the industrial potential of Palestine.
I can't see how Churchill or any other leader of WW11 could have been in favour of Jewish people.If it was so he would have faught tooth and nail to free the Jewish people from hitler's grasp. And we can't pretend he didn't know because the world did know. The leaders that is. It was Churchill who only let in a certain number of Jewish people into England from 33-45. America, England and Russia were tight fisted and fast friends. The Jewish people had to turn to Asia in the end to escape.
6 million precious precious precious men women and small children were murdered in the most horrific way because leaders like Churchill turned his back on them. Churchill was looking for politicle gain and that is all if he actually smiled at the Jewish people at all at all. Please lets not forget those precious lives and their generations murdered at the hands of the world leaders of the time.
However, the truth can be indicated as below.
The more crude oil fields were discovered in the Middle East, the more Palestine and Israel became important. And, the development of crude oil business and the deployment of Israel have evolved in parallel since the end of WWII.
The Anglo Saxon super-rich people found that they could play a role of an intermediary between Israel and Arab oil producing states, which contributed to securing their favorable position in the crude oil business and the oil dollar business.
Accordingly, they need a myth that Churchill was a friend of Judaists from the bottom of his heart, which is quite dubious, since Churchill mainly worked on Iraq before WWII as Iraqi crude oil could be a big source of fuels for British Naval ships.
*** *** *** ***
The current global financial crisis is the result of movement between Anglo-Saxon super-rich men, Judaist super-rich men, and Arab super-rich men.
This movement could be regarded as having been initiated and promoted by Churchill and the likes.
So, to prevent another global financial crisis, the world majority must cautiously check the movement between Anglo-Saxon super-rich men, Judaist super-rich men, and Islamic super-rich men.
It is so, since the Wall Street debacle happened when the crude oil price started to plummet down toward $40 from $140 in August 2008.
That is all for today.
Have a nice public holiday tomorrow, if you are working in Japan but not in the media industry, such as a TV station.
(Qu'est-ce que vous dites "Be My Baby" en français?

Joh 5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk.
Joh 5:9 And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.

"Sharp as a Two-Edged Sword"
(Islam and Swine Meat or Crude Oil)
Live, just being surrounded by enemies 24 hours, seven days per week.
Then you will know how strange it is for a man to die of an infectious disease.
Indeed, ancient Israelites were wandering in the Sinai desert where they found no friendly tribes for 40 years after the Exodus, so as to go crazy revering a gold calf, which Moses sternly corrected with horrible punishment as the God so wished.
So, friends, 40 years is the norm here, rather proudly.
SECTION I: Health Crises to Address
It is not only swine flu that is threatening good and poor people.
(Data are for the U.S.)
Number of new tuberculosis cases: 13,779 (2006)
Number of new salmonella cases: 45,808 (2006)
Number of new Lyme disease cases: 19,931 (2006)
Number of new meningococcal disease cases: 1,194 (2006)
Turn to the God if you do not have big money to buy your health from hospitals and medical doctors, since the meaning and the value of life of each person are decided by the God.
SECTION II: "Mideast and cheaper oil"
Now you know Churchill is ultimately responsible for the present tragedy of Iraq.
You must also know that Former President Mr. George W. Bush highly respects Churchill.
One of the reasons for Mr. Bush's obsession with Iraq before September 2001 looks like having been rooted in his admiration for the Churchill's success in management of Iraq rather than his victory over Hitler.
THE JAPAN TIMES
May 2, 2009
Mideast and cheaper oil
Certainly in OPEC circles and among policymakers in the leading producer states there are some signs of apprehension. They can see a picture emerging, at least in the West and in Japan, of a world of electric transport, nuclear electricity, far greater energy use efficiency and green non-oil energy sources, notably wind power, biofuels and solar power in place of the almost total world oil dependence of the last century.
However, Dubai's mounting debts and bankruptcies have led to some shaking of Arab heads about dangers of going too fast along with this route. Bahrain with dwindling output, serves as a less extreme example of this pattern, or has at any rate avoided the property bubble effects and spending inefficiencies that have forced Dubai to turn next door to Abu Dhabi for help.
Somewhere among these assessments and hopes there is a place for a real vision of a more stable and more prosperous Arabia, lifting itself from the "curse of oil" and from the unbalanced and distorted societies, and disparities of wealth, that have been hall mark of the oil-producing states.
Perhaps they might then open the path to a more dynamic and creative pattern of social and economic advance, recalling the medieval days of Arab greatness and intellectual leadership to which the whole world once looked for enlightenment.
David Howard is a former British Cabinet minister…now a member of the House of Lords.
This author, one of the British elites, sounds polite and friendly to Arabs in his writing.
But, it is a lack of full respect for Islam that I sense therein, since the author never uses the words "Islam" and "Muslims" in this long essay dealing with Arab states.
He even does not mention a kind of offset balance of democracy and Islam therein.
The British elite has no intention to help Muslims while Allah seems to request rich men, very rich men, and super rich men of England help Muslims; they are just displaying their superior position to the Arab nations.
So, Muslims must forget about oil and money; they have to develop Islam so that their religion can save them. They have to find a way to leverage Islam for their future development in every field of human activities, including culture, philosophy, science, technology, industry, business, and education.
I really recommend them to go back to the glory of Abraham, if not the glory of the Mesopotamia civilization.
Otherwise, poor and pious Christians in the world might think the view Anglo Saxon and Judaist elites take of the Islamic world should be respected.
The future glory of Muslims and the Islamic world is only possible through development of Islam, but not higher prices of crude oil the abundant existence of which in the Gulf Region is undoubtedly part of the glory and mercy of Allah to pious Muslims (therefore the crude oil business must be based on the teaching of Islam).
*** *** *** ***
That is all for today, since Muslims do not eat swine meat though I am allowed to take it by the God Almighty.
Have you ever been exceptionally and directly by Allah?
Pro 5:1 My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
Pro 5:2 That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
Pro 5:3 For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
Pro 5:4 But her end is bitter as wormwood, sharp as a two-edged sword.
Pro 5:5 Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.
Pro 5:6 Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
Pro 5:7 Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
