12 And the
book [cepher] is delivered [nathan] to
him that is not learned [yada`][cepher], saying ['amar], Read [qara'] this, I pray thee: and he saith ['amar], I am not learned [yada`].
12 And when
they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I
cannot read.” ESV

There are two important principles in this verse. But first we are getting very near to the description of phony people. People who profess Christianity, but do not comply with Christian mandates. And most folks do not even have a clue as to what those mandates are.
