“Preacheth”


“Preacheth”

Simpler version is better. As in the poem so is the days of our lives. The Congregation wants the King James Version. The Preacher wants the NIV New International Version. The Hobo comes in the Church in the middle of this Sunday Confrontation. Eye have the Gideon Bible eye took it from the Motel at the edge of town they had a disclaimer on the page said for me do not remove this Bible from the room. The Church is quiet now not a sound not a mouse moves in the house. “Why did you take the Gideon Bible”? said the Preacher. “SAYETH why” said the congregate. Eye like to have a Bible in my hobo bag so when someone steals it they can find the Bible in the bag and it keeps them mad. But eye promise you one thing preacher when eye meet this Gideon fellow eye will give it back. The preacher says, “eye will Preach.” The congregate says “no you will Preacheth.” The hobo says “read it from the Gideon.” Deuteronomy 5: 19 (New International Version) 19 'You shall not steal. Deuteronomy 5: 19 (King James Version) 19Neither shalt thou steal. Deuteronomy 5: 19 (The Message) 19 No stealing. Open the night stand drawer in almost any motel room in the world and you will find a Bible
placed there by the Gideon’s International. The oldest Christian business and professional men’s association in the United States, the Gideons have been around for more than 100 years, and have been placing Bibles in hotel rooms for almost that long. They also give the small New Testaments to people at schools eye havd had many of them and yes eye am the hobo that steals bibles from motel rooms.
