The text of a Bible verse from Proverbs is encrypted on the first of each of the double lines.
The second line shows the verse decrypted according to the letters you specify.
The "Overall:" line shows the letters of the alphabet in the order of how often they occur in all the verses.
The "Encrypt:" line shows the letters of the alphabet in the order of how often they occur in the encrypted verse.
The "Decrypt:" line shows the letters you have specified to use for decryption.
If the frequency of the letters in the encrypted verse were the same as all verses, then the "Decrypt:" line would match the "Overall:" line.
This is not usually the case but it is a good guide.
