A Quick Daily Study: Stanza 38

I have been up for a while doing a little research on a subject that I don’t know much about other than the basics. I normally don’t rise to the occasion of proving an individual wrong but when it comes to dog ownership, particularly what is considered a ‘dangerous breed’ I’m a huge advocate. I own 3 of the most docile pit bulls so I felt compelled. I did my research and was reminded of all the stanzas about being overly boastful with ignorant knowledge. I only gave enough information to cause the individuals to think and not to feel stupid.

Today’s stanza is pretty straight forward, I think:

Pocket Version:
Leaving in the field his arms, let no
man go a foot’s length forward; for it is
hard to know when on the way a man may
need his weapon.

Chisholm:
A man should not step one foot
forth in the field without weapons.
One cannot know, when on the road,
when he will need his spear.

I think in a general sense for today’s society is to always be prepared. You never know what could happen and come your way. You may not need a weapon but having knowledge or even basic skills will help keep you safe or at least out of any drama.
