in reply to Matthew 23:24

Well, in this Monastery we strive for wisdom, which seems to be more important than pe(a)rls or even rubies.

Job 28:19
No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls:
for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

And of course pe(a)rls should not be given to the swines. I guess that means that only the wise should have them. It is clear pe(a)rls have a lot to do with beauty and wisdom and the ultimate that can be obtained.

Matthew
7:6
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
13:45
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
13:46
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

I don't like the part where women are denied (or restricted in the way they may approach) the beauty and wisdom of pe(a)rls...

Timothy
2:9
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety;
not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
2:10
But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
2:11
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

The rest of the bible talks in more incomprehensible ways about our precious. I keep wondering... did Larry go back in time and have some pot and write some strange things? So many funny things in the bible.

    I sort of figured that verse had something to do with sales/marketing folks? :|

    Maybe Larry should have stuck with the name Gloria. I don't recall anything in the bible saying 'Cast not ye Glorias before the swine' or anything like that.

    I don't know that the Bible is so much against women women using pe(a)rl. After all it's arrays are much less costly than some other languages out there (PHP, for instance). And you can do so many good works with pe(a)rl.
