Of course, the version I read was the NIV:
But after looking at a few translations, I found the NKJV was the one I preferred. I think because of the word "evil" being used.
So, I then decided to do a quick word study and looked up the following words: fear, life, satisfaction, abide. Here's what I found:
fear (Hebrew = yir'ah) - reverence
life (Hebrew = chay) - alive
- this word gave me some difficulty as the Strong's only showed 2 occurrences in the book of Numbers. So I went a little further and found another word.
- satisfied (Hebrew = wabea (saw-bay'-ah)) - satiated
- of course I then looked up satiated (Hebrew = ravah) - make drunk; fill; soak
I am finding that by doing word studies the Bible begins to make better sense to me as I read it. After watching "The War Room" (for the second time), I realise that I need to be more studious in my reading of the Word. I need to read the parallel verses. I need to do word studies. I want and need to be ALIVE in Christ.
Maybe I should let Him guide me ALWAYS!
