But, she knows it not.

Proverbs 5 (NIV)
"1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom,
listen well to my words of insight,
2 that you may maintain discretion
and your lips may preserve knowledge.
3 For the lips of an adulteress drip honey,
and her speech is smoother than oil;
4 but in the end she is bitter as gall,
sharp as a double-edged sword.
Her feet go down to death;
her steps lead straight to the grave.
She gives no thought to the way of life;
her paths are crooked, but she knows it not."

I once learned a way of bible study where you take time
reading one sentence, emphasizing a different word each time.
I can't stop repeating this scripture.... but she knows it not.

*But she knows it not. But, she knows it not.
But she knows it not. But, she knows it not.
But, she knows it not.*

Message bible reads this:
5 She's dancing down the primrose path to Death;
she's headed straight for Hell and taking you with her.
6 She hasn't a clue about Real Life,
about who she is or where she's going. "

*She has no clue about real life.
She has no clue about who she is.
And she has no clue about where she is going.
and to think... she knows it not.*

I really like this! I think that's a cool way to study scripture. I've never heard it before.
