Much in the religious and secular media has been written and spoken on the subject of Child Abuse.
Much has also been written and spoken on the subject of Wife Abuse.
It is fitting that after the murderous demise of Colonel Mumu the Kad that mentioned also should be copious disrespect and abuse against other royal pomposities who loved to play supreme monarch, against His Highness Hos in Egypt, and more noble males along the lines of His Majesty George W Bush plus lower specimens of his gender.
It would behoove GOP Presidential nominee-hopeful Gingrich (at the time of this writing) to select Senator Bernie Sanders as his VP running mate for the 2012 Election. That would prove - especially to the "lefties" - that Newt was serious about countering the insidious attack against Social Security and Medicare which so many so-called "conservative" GOP candidates and radio/TV-talkshow ideologues have diabolically, relentlessly and mindlessly engaged in.
I was in a wifi-internet kiosk the other evening, and some roudy shrieking kids emerged from the restaurant near me. To override their unusually-loud-and-irritating-noise as they, unattended and undisciplined, were running and goofing around, I already had had portable headphones on connected to the jamming sounds of static from my transistor radio tuned to some off-frequency....to block out their audible disturbance. It is a technique I had become aware of which was used during World World II relating to radar jamming.
In this case, the noise level of their nuisance shrieking was higher than anything I have experienced before, so I made the mistake of turning up the volume level of the jamming static sounds to decibel levels higher than if I had been at point-blank proximity to a jet engine at running at full throttle.
They continued on for some time, trying to show off to each other for selfish attention, and probably to me for mischievous spite, which only increased the God-only-knows-how-much damage to my eardrums.
I guess that my hearing has recovered somewhat, but I made up my mind that before that type of thing ever happens again, I will first visit the lavatory, fetch a couple little sections of clean toilet paper off the roll in the stall, wet it with water, and snugly stick it into the canals of both ears, after which I will go back and put the static-noise headphones on at low-level volume....and if similar shrieker kids show up again and do similar irritating noise abuse around me, at least when I kick up the static volume on the radio there will be much less chance of going deaf as a result.
Before that happens, I must remember to put my cellphone ringer on "Stun" (i.e. vibrate) because there is no way I would ever hear if anyone was ringing my cellphone, and if they did do so, how I would ever be able to answer and communicate with them on the cellphone with all that extremely-harassing shrieking noise around is anyone's guess.
What ever happened to "children should be seen and not heard?"
It does absolutely no good for a wimpish and cowardly parent (fearful of the possible demented presence of demonic social-worker or whatever self-appointed-police guardians against "child abuse") to merely talk to an abusively-shrieking child and tell IT to "be quiet" - once IT has blasted forth and shrieked.
Proverbs 29:19 By mere words a servant is not disciplined, for though he understands, he will not give heed.
Much more immediate physical-retribulation punishment is promptly required:
Second Kings 23:27 And the LORD said, "I will remove Judah also out of My sight, as I have removed Israel, and I will cast off this city which I have chosen, Jerusalem, and the house of which I said, My name shall be there."
Second Kings 24:3 Surely this came upon Judah at the command of the LORD, to remove them out of His sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he had done
Second Chronicles 33:8 ...and I will no more remove the foot of Israel from the land which I appointed for your fathers, if only they will be careful to do all that I have commanded them, all the law, the statutes, and the ordinances given through Moses."
Jeremiah 28:16 Therefore thus says the LORD: "Hey, I will remove you from the face of the earth. This very year you shall die, because you have uttered rebellion against the LORD."
Joel 2:20 I will remove the northerner far from you, and drive him into a parched and desolate land, his front into the eastern sea, and his rear into the western sea; the stench and foul smell of him will rise, for he has done great things.
Zephaniah 3:11 On that day you shall not be put to shame because of the deeds by which you have rebelled against me; for then I will remove from your midst your proudly exultant ones, and you shall no longer be haughty in my holy mountain.
Zechariah 13:2 "And on that day," says the LORD of hosts, "I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, so that they shall be remembered no more; and also I will remove from the land the prophets and the unclean spirit."
Acts 7:43 "And you took up the tent of Moloch, and the star of the god Rephan, the figures which you made to worship; and I will remove you beyond Babylon."
Clearly, removing the shrieking child by sometimes-wanting-to-selfishly-get-attention-herself-by-letting-IT-shriek mother (and maybe even father) from the premises so as to not let IT even be given one more chance to terroristically and horrendously disturb the peace is strongly suggested and desired by the rational.
The antisocial disarray of feminist-sexist mothers letting their little brats run around wildly and shriek so loud that they hurt the ears of besieged victims nearby reminds me of a lament of Isaiah 3:12:
Isaiah 3:8 For Jerusalem has stumbled, and Judah has fallen; because their [naughty] speech and their works are against the LORD, defying His glorious presence.
9 Their partiality witnesses against them; they proclaim their sin like Sodom, they do not hide it. Woe to them! For they have brought evil upon themselves.
10 Tell the righteous that it shall be well with them, for they shall eat the fruit of their works.
11 Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him, for what his hands have done shall be done to him.
12 My people: children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. Oh my people, your [let-women-and-kids-be-in-charge] leaders mislead you, and confuse the course of your paths.
13 The LORD has taken His place to contend, he stands to judge his people.
I also have never liked it that "let-the-kiddies-fool-around-and-express-themselves-artistically" pansy-wansy mothers and cowardly-wimpish librarians allow toddlers to block walkways and entrances with toys and whatever where others can trip and slip on them, deface or remove warning and other signs, and/or give children chalk to mark up public sidewalks and driveways, when there are perfectly good blackboards around on which the childish scribblings and doodlings of non-disciplined immature rug-rats and ankle-alligators can readily be erased:
Deuteronomy 19:14 In the inheritance which you will hold in the land that the LORD your God gives you to possess, you shall not remove your neighbor's landmark, which the men of old have set.
Proverbs 22:28 Remove not the ancient landmark which your fathers have set.
Isaiah 1:16 Wash yourselves; make yourselves clean; remove the evil of your doings from before my eyes; cease to do evil
Isaiah 57:14 And it shall be said, "Build up, build up, prepare the way, remove every obstruction from my people's way."
One way to perhaps stop a child who has already shrieked and is quite likely to soon do it again is to stick a cookie in both of IT's hand and one in IT's mouth to silence IT:
Psalm 131:2 But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a child quieted at its mother's breast; like a child "that" (not "who" in this case?) is quieted is my soul.
Despite satanic accusations of "child abuse" by the damned-to-be, physical-reliation actions are necessary for the wellbeing of all society in general:
Proverbs 19:18 Discipline your son while there is hope; do not set your heart on his destruction.
20:11 Even a child makes himself known by his acts, whether what he does is pure and right.
22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:15 Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline drives it far from him.
23:13 Do not withhold discipline from a child; if you beat him with a rod, he will not die. [though please stop short of bruises and bleeding]
23:14 If you beat him with the rod you will save his life from Sheol.
26:3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the back of fools.
29:15 The rod and reproof give wisdom, but a child left to himself brings shame to his mother.
Proverbs 29:17 Discipline your son, and he will give you rest; he will give delight to your heart.
Innately-rebellious-themselves-against-God suggest that one should "not be too hard on an immature child" because outbursts of demonically-insane terrorism are "expected" by overly-tolerant patsy-wimp accusators...along the "be patient and let them screw around for a while, because they're only kids, and what do you expect from such?" misapplications against:
First Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a man, I gave up childish ways.
Galatians 4:1 I mean that the heir, as long as he is a child, is no better than a slave, though he is the owner of all the estate
Hebrews 5:13 ....for every one who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a child.
Christ Jesus no more advocated letting toddlers destructively run wild, terroristically shriek, and commit all sorts of dangerous and antisocially-destructive vandalism by uttering the admonitions:
Mark 10:15 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."
Luke 18:17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it."
...than He did when He ordered people (in John 6:54-46) to allegedly (and cannibalistically) chomp on his penis, toes, nose, earlobes (i.e. "Eat My body") nor slurp (like some Dracula-type vampire) his actual Type A or AB or O chromosomed-corpuscled human blood (i.e. "Drink my blood).
It does help, of course, when crying infants grow into more-advanced-communication toddlers who can talk to explain their occasional shriek or shout for understandable reasons -- like suffering a sudden insect bite or bee sting, touching a hot stove, being shocked by some source of high-voltage electricity, sticking themselves with a pin or needle, getting a sharp pain internally or externally because of some injury or disease, and other unusual phenomena resulting in extra-forceful audible outbursts of displeasure.
But irresponsibility-based actions requiring application of corporal punishment even goes so far as to engage in not merely spanking and whipping, but even stoning if necessary:
Leviticus 24:16 He who blasphemes the name of the LORD shall be put to death; all the congregation shall stone him; the sojourner as well as the native, when he blasphemes the Name, shall be put to death.
Deuteronomy 13:10 You shall stone him to death with stones, because he tried to draw you away from the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Deuteronomy 21:18 If a man has a stubborn and rebellious son, who will not obey the voice of his father or the voice of his mother, and, though they chastise him, will not accomodate to them,
Deuteronomy 21:21 Then all the men of the city shall stone him to death with stones; so you shall purge the evil from your locale; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
The passage above indicates that [good and healthy] fear occurs from righteous execution, plainly having the effect of a non-deniable deterrant, and also making sure that a crossed-the-line criminal does not get a chance to be a repeat offender!
Punishment, of course, has to be meted out in proportion to the type and severity of the offence:
Deuteronomy 22:18 Then the elders of that city shall take the man and whip him
Deuteronomy 25:3 Forty stripes may be given him, but not more; lest, if one should go on to beat him with more stripes than these, your brother be degraded in your sight.
Some police sting operations should result in fatalities:
Ezekiel 16:36 Thus says the Lord GOD, Because your shame was laid bare and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotries with your lovers, and because of all your idols, and because of the blood of your children that you gave to them,
37 therefore, hey, I will gather all your lovers, with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved and all those you loathed; I will gather them against you from every side, and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.
38 And I will judge you as women who break wedlock and shed blood [by committing and not "performing" abortion-homicide] are judged, and bring upon you the blood of wrath and jealousy.
39 And I will give you into the hand of your lovers, and they shall throw down your vaulted chamber and break down your lofty places; they shall strip you of your clothes and take your fair jewels, and leave you naked and bare.
40 They shall bring up a host against you, and they shall stone you and cut you to pieces with their swords.
John 2:15 And making a whip of cords, He drove them all, with the sheep and oxen, out of the temple; and He poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. [although he was not illegally "disturbing the peace" nor "being a public nuisance"by doing so]
When Bible reading was mandatory and expected curriculum in public schools of early America, pioneer pilgrim children learned:
Ephesians 6:1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
Colossians 3:20 Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord.
They did NOT learn: "Parents obey your children." -- even though mutual familial cooperation is indicated by:
Malachi 4:6 And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse."
Public-school pilgrim pioneer children of America's Founding Fathers also learned:
Exodus 20:12 Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
Deuteronomy 5:16 Honor your father and your mother, as the LORD your God commanded you; that your days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with you, in the land which the LORD your God gives you.
First Samuel 2:29 Why then look with greedy eye at my sacrifices and my offerings which I commanded, and honor your sons above me by fattening yourselves upon the choicest parts of every offering of my people Israel?'
Matthew 15:4 For God commanded, 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die.'
Matthew 19:19 Honor your father and mother, and, You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Mark 7:10 For Moses said, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who speaks evil of father or mother, let him surely die'
Mark 10:19 You know the commandments: 'Do not kill, Do not commit adultery, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Do not defraud, Honor your father and mother.'"
Luke 14:26 If any one comes to me and does not hate his own father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.
Luke 18:20 You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor your father and mother.'"
Ephesians 6:2 Honor your father and mother." This is the first commandment with a promise...
They did NOT learn: "Parents, honor your children."
They also learned respect for the elderly in charge of them outside the classrooms:
Romans 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those who exist have been instituted by God.
Romans 13:5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
First Corinthians 16:16 I urge you to be subject to such men and to every fellow worker and laborer.
Ephesians 5:21 Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.
First Timothy 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men,
First Timothy 2:2 for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way.
First Timothy 2:3 This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior
Titus 2:9 Request employees to be submissive to their employers and to give satisfaction in every respect; they are not to be refractory,
10 nor to pilfer, but to show entire and true fidelity, so that in everything they may adorn the doctrine of God our Savior.
11 For the grace of God has appeared for the salvation of all men,
12 training us to renounce irreligion and worldly passions, and to live sober, upright, and godly lives in this world,
13 awaiting our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
14 who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people of His own who are zealous for good works [who do not self-excuse themselves in arrogant self-righteousness with cheap-grace claims of being "justified by faith alone apart from works of law"].
15 Declare these things; exhort and reprove with all authority. Let no one [including the ACLU, AUSCS, SPLC, PAW, NOW, "Human Rights" homos/atheists, United Nations, and Christianity-despising jews] disregard you .
Titus 3:1 Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for any honest work [ to not greedily buy nor sell subprime mortgages nor bid up gas prices on Wall Street close to $2.00 or more per gallon].
Hebrews 12:9 Besides this, we have had earthly fathers to discipline us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of Spirits and live?
First Peter 2:13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme
14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to praise those who do right.
15 For it is God's will that by doing right you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish men.
16 Live as free men, yet without using your freedom as a pretext for evil; but live as servants of God.
17 Honor all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
18 Employees, be submissive to your employers with all respect, not only to the kind and gentle but also to the overbearing.
First Peter 5:5 Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble." Of course, discipline for children by parents should be fair and just, based on morality and justice, and kids should not be whipping boards for insensitive parents to take out their frustration and egocentricities on:
Ephesians 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Colossians 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.
Now we go from comment on "child abuse" (that is, children abusing not only [female] mothers and other females, but also [male] fathers and other men)....to the phenomena of "women abuse" (i.e. women abusing not merely children of whatever gender but also fathers and other men).
Concerning the annual-billion-dollary porn-and-prostitution business - rife and reeking with fornicating and adulteress young-teen-and-somewhat-older human females, deliberately and of their OWN will, trafficking as voluntary greedy-for-dirty-money escorts and masseuses pandering for sexually-oriented violations inciting both porn and prostitution, as for example women wilfully modelling semi-naked or fully-naked for so-called "men's magazines, internet and other photos, videos, etc.- such immoral and defiling shenanigans would soon become much less pervasive if the following was made known by Biblical education to people in general and enforced by both law-enforcement officials and the judiciary:
Leviticus 21:9 And the daughter of any priest, if she profanes herself by playing the harlot, profanes her father; she shall be burned with fire.
Deuteronomy 22:20 But if the thing is true, that the tokens of virginity were not found in the young woman,
Deuteronomy 22:21 then they shall bring out the young woman to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her to death with stones, because she has imposed folly in Israel by playing the harlot in her father's house; so you shall purge the evil from the midst of you.
Deuteronomy 22:22 If a man is found lying with the wife of another man, both of them shall die, the man who lay with the woman, and the woman; so you shall purge the evil from Israel.
A "witch hunt?"
But of course, IF in fact a bonafide and genuinely-occultic witch [NOT some falsely-accused innocent person] is targeted:
Exodus 22:18 You shall not allow a sorceress to live. (Means of capital punishment not specified here)
And where should one "draw the line" as to what is legally and Biblically considered "pornographic?"
Saint Paul (speaking for and by the Holy Spirit of Christ Jesus) put it this way:
First Corinthians 12:23 ...and those parts of the body which we think less honorable we invest with the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty,
24 which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving the greater honor to the inferior part,
25 that there may be no discord in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
26 If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together.
27 Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
He expounds on the same idea later on in his (and the Lord's) New Testament writings:
First Timothy 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men,
2 for kings [Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Carter, Clinton, Saddam, Mubarak, Khaddafi, Obama, etc.] and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way. 3 This is good, and it is acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who desires all humans to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is One God, and there is One Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus [not allah nor Mohammed nor Ahmadinejad nor Obama],
6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony to which was borne at the proper time.
7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle, I am telling the truth, I am not lying, a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 also that women should adorn themselves modestly and decently in appropriate apparel, not with broided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good works, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with sobriety.
What is "modest and decent" doesnot depend on whether the outside or inside air temperature is warm or cool, nor on what type of sports activities are exhibited for mixed-gender audiences in general-public view to gaze at, nor even on marital status!
Obviously, long-sleeved armwear is alluded to in both the Revised Standard Version and New American Standard Version of Second Samuel 13:18, full-length legwear is inferred in the previously-mentioned Bible translations of Isaiah 47:1-4, and all parts of bare-feet-covered footwear is indicated by RSV's and NASV's rendition of Jeremiah 2:25 and context (related not merely to "idolatry" but also the sexually-immodest manifestions of whatever ancient or modern type of glamor-style-or-fashion-indoctrination idolatry such is related to).
During the cold-to-frigid winter months, survival of the fittest for the inherently rebellious requires postponing until warmer weather summerwear exhibitionism of female body parts such as arms, legs, and feet (among other parts mentioned in Song of Solomon 7:1-7.
But one type of immodesty remains for many girls and women who, though hypocritically and of necessity temporarily displaying hit-and-miss modesty at times, which type of immodesty they manage to still publicly flaunt most of the time as luridly-lewd and sexually-harassing exhibitionists.
That particular immodesty showing their relentless and persistent irreligious, worldliness-conformity, Christianity-despising sexually-immoral intentions is: LOOSE long hair hanging down, typically below mouth-level, and not tied up in a bun or chignon nor into a single back-of-head ponytail...as they ignore and disregard the following Scripture verses in outright rebellious defiance, irrelevant to infrequent and occasional gut-feeling-shame-or-guilt-based spurts of passing push-their-hair-back-without-actually-tying-it momentarily-modest futile attempts at self-correction:
Numbers 5:18 And the priest shall set the woman before the LORD, and unbind the hair of the woman's head....(and please see the following vital context of the situation in your own Bible)
Let her hair down? Shameful, and embarrassing!
Song of Solomon 7:5 (RSV & NASV) Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks [i.e. loose long hair] are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
The context of the verse above is describing nor advocating titillation with the sensuous mopheadedness of some TV newscasteress or reporteress, female in the next church pew ahead of one, biking or jogging or shopping whore-or-slut-lookalikes, but instead of the writer's erotic admiration of his own bride in private away from public view:
Song of Solomon 2:14 Oh my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff [behind closed doors or equivalent, away from public view], let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your your is attactive.
First Corinthians 11:10 That is why a woman ought to have a veil on her head, because of the angels.
11 Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman;
12 for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God.
13 Judge for yourselves; is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered?
14 Does not nature itself teach you that for a man to wear long hair is degrading to him,
15 but if a woman has long hair, it is her pride? For her hair is given to her for a covering.
16 If any one is disposed to be contentious, we recognize no such custom, nor do the churches of God.
[ True and authentic "born-anew" "evangelical" Christians do NOT regard a woman's non-bound loose long hair as adequate for a prayer-covering veil during church services! ]
Honestly now, men, you in all frankness would admit that a teen or older women looks a lot sexier with long hair hanging down and not up in a bun nor tied into a back-of-head ponytail, yes? And you also would, in all honesty, admit that you would not like your own wife enticing other men with that erotic mopheadedness when you are not around her as she is out and about wherever.
It certainly is not necessary nor helpful for a woman to attempt to short-circuit and prematurely erotically excite a man out of wedlock nor premaritally with enticing loose long hair. In fact, judicially-supported law-enforcement arrests, fines, and even imprisonment or worse for impenitent repeat offenders are inferred by the following verse:
Song of Solomon 2:15 Catch us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom."
Song of Solomon 2:7 I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the hinds of the field, that you stir not up nor awaken love [by imposing overly-erotic loose-long-haired mopheadedness] until it please.
3:5 I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem, by the gazelles or the hinds of the field, that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
5:8 I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem, if you find my beloved, that you tell him I am sick with love.
8:4 I adjure you, daughters of Jerusalem, that you stir not up nor awaken love until it please.
It is fascinating that gals who disregard Scripturally-based hairstyle modesty and let their hair hang long and loose in public view to supposedly "look sexy" or "glamorous," "attractive and appealing" and thus satanically "take matters into their own hands" while unfairly competing against and depriving decently-hairstyled gals with single back-of-head ponytails or hair up in a chignon, generally do NOT attract or permanently get absolute loyalty of the men they intend to attract:
Proverbs 14:12 There is an [impose-overly-erotic-mopheadedness-in-mixed-gender-public-view] way which seems right to a [woman], but its end is the way to [alienating-rejection] death.
Proverbs 16:25 There is a [try-to-attract-a-man-with-loose-long-hair] way which seems right to a [woman], but its end is the way to [no-romantic-companionship] death.
Ecclesiastes 2:26 For to the [decently-hairstyled woman] who pleases Him God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy; but to the [publicly-mopheaded] sinner he gives the work of gathering and heaping, only to give to one who pleases God. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.
Ecclesiastes 3:15 That which is, already has been; that which is to be, already has been; and God seeks [unfairly-competed-against-decently-hairstyled-women] who have been driven away.
Haggai 1:6 You have planted much [sinfully and harassingly exposing mopheadedness in general public view], and harvested little [quality-male-relationships]; you eat, but you never have enough; you drink, but you never have your fill; you clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; and he who earns wages earns wages to put them into a bag with holes.
