WORSE, worse than six others
is this primal beast-     CONCEIT:
unbridled, yet cast surely down;
where it, simpering, seems yet to roar,
the enemy of all quiet.

VEXING the very pure of heart, vexing
sure is this primal beast-    BRAGGART:
puffed and prating to its fall
it fell to vexing every man
tries all the more to wreck his heart.

NONE, no part was found
of this primal beast in One!   FOLLY:
which enamored of self alone, still clamors
for a victory, yet is once and ever rightly
deprived of all its lust by Him.

STAY, now thy soul upon this Conqueror 
of the primal beast's-    HYPOCRISY:
of PRIDE now and ever doomed,
and ever failing: its success is to fail 
and steal away a soul, bitterly.

STAY and BUILD upon thy ROCK who’ll crush
this primal beast-   PRIDE:
the first of six and all sins other,
all fraudulent acts and desires. 
Thy ROCK will give thee VICTORY... and more besides.

dbs circa 2004...Praise the Lord! ~ halleluYah! ~ Glory to God! ~ AMEN!...

Proverbs 6
16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19 A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
