The rod and the staff are both objects used by Shepards to tend their sheep. This is my take since it is the rod I have researched for "spare the ROD and spoil the child." It is depicted as a long staff with a claw type hook on the end. Perhaps they are one tool having different ends. The rod being used to reach out and gently tap the sheep getting away ...

God made a promise to King David that one of his sons/kinsman would always reign on the throne. 2 Samuel 7:16 (NASB) 16 "Your house and your kingdom shall endure before Me forever; your throne shall be established forever."'" But it's even more profound than that as God gives King David even more detail that Christ would be Prophet, Priest and King: ...

The Idea in Brief The Greek term ὠδίν appears to carry the idea of confinement, which results in anguish. For example, the pregnant woman is "trapped" in pain, and thus anguish. The city inhabitants are "trapped" by their attackers, and thus anguish. Jonah is "trapped" in Sheol, and thus anguish. The use of this term in the Christian New Testament therefore ...

In Hebrew, the first "Lord" is Yahweh (God's name), and the second "Lord" really means Lord. So the text is "Yahweh said to my Lord." The way Peter uses the words in Acts 2:34 seems to indicate that the second Lord is the Messiah. This is also corroborated by Matthew 22:42-45.

Another answer to your question may be found here:(Keil & Delitzsch's OT Commentary) Jeremiah 31:39 shows how we are to understand קו in connection with יצא. The measuring line of the heavens is gone forth into all the earth, i.e., has taken entire possession of the earth. Psalm 19:5 tells us what kind of measuring line is intended, viz., that ...

I found a couple commentators that carry the idea of a line to a sound two interesting ways. One says it is like a line of characters, a word, that goes out across the whole universe. Ver. 4. —— “their line.” קוﬦ, “their sound.” φθόγγος, LXX. sonus, Jerom. and Vulg. And to the same effect all the ancients, except Aquila, from the Arabic sense of the ...

The fulfilment of Psalm 69:21 in John 19:28-29 Properly speaking John 19:28 and the 'I thirst' statement of John 19:28 is linked to Ps 69:3 which says: "I am weary with my crying; My throat is dry; My eyes fail while I wait for my God." it is John 19:29 that could be linked to Ps 69:21, the commentator notes: The connection of the Markan Death Story, ...

I like the interpretation of Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible : Thou preparest a table before me,.... In a providential way granting a sufficiency, and even an affluence of temporal good things; the providence of God lays and spreads a table for his people in the wilderness, and sets them down at it, and bids them welcome to it; see Psalm 78:19; and ...
