Matthew 6:9-10 (YLT) "Our Father who [art] in the heavens! hallowed be Thy name. 10 `Thy reign come: Thy will come to pass, as in heaven also on the earth." Thanks.

comment What does “on earth as it is in heaven” cover?
Something Adam Clarke wrote was very interesting; he noted that the word "kingdom" meant reign. I then checked the Young's Literal Translation bible and found the word "kingdom" isn't used there; actually "reign" is used instead. Do you consider there to be quite a difference between the words "kingdom" and "reign", especially when used in Matthew 6:10?

comment What does, “Blessed is he who stays awake and keeps his clothes with him,” mean?
@Joseph Thanks! One story/person I have to smile about is the Noah who first "walked with God", but then after the flood planted a vineyard, got drunk and naked (possibly very confused). (Gen 6:10, Gen 9:20-27)

comment Whom does Rebekah fear to lose? (Gen 27:45)
This has no effect on answering your question, but it's interesting that Isaac, while feeling he might "die at any time" and thus giving his blessing to the son who deceived him, didn’t die 14 years afterward, and then some. Rebekah and he didn’t want Jacob marrying a Hittite (or Canaanite), so they made him travel to Bethel and find a wife (Gen 28:1-2). Jacob found and married Rachel, but only after being tricked by Laban into serving a 2nd set of 7 years in order to do so (Gen 29:15-28). Isaac died after Rachel died (per Gen 35:16-29). –
