I'm taking part in The Bible Memory Challenge, and memorizing Matthew 7:6 this week.
This verse immediately makes me think of a Japanese proverb, 豚に真珠 (buta ni shinju), which literally means 'pearls to a pig.' Wondering if this saying comes from this verse, I looked up a few online dictionaries. Yes, it does. I'd like to know when and where this Japanese proverb was used for the first time.
