2 For thine arrows [chets] stick fast [nachath] in me, and thy hand [yad] presseth me sore [nachath]. KJV-Interlinear
2 For your arrows have sunk into me, and your hand has come down on me. ESV
This verse conveys the idea of the stresses and burdens and discipline that can descend down upon a person, from seemingly everywhere.
Because of our weaknesses and failures in life, we are constantly hampered by the repercussions of our own transgressions.
Our transgressions can be outright sins, or they can come from passive indifferences, or our discontentment’s, or whatever, that we might have regarding our role in life.
Regardless of the source of our failures, Christ is standing nearby ready to lower the hammer on us in a variety of ways. And when that happens, our life can be turned upside down, and certainly things can become very inconvenient for us.
But the stresses that accompany whatever difficulties we may encounter, are usually enough to wake us up and make us aware of our own flaws, and of our own failed decisions or actions.
The phrase, stick fast, refers to the disciplinary action that descends down upon us.
The arrows, refer to the disciplinary action its self.
And this is not a single arrow, but a barrage of many arrows, from which we cannot get out of the way, or hide from, or shield ourselves from, because they all strike their mark. Namely you.
The obvious response to Gods discipline, is to cease in that pattern of life or activity that got you into that trouble. The obvious stupid response, is to not change from that pattern that got you into trouble.
But, stubborn is as stubborn does, which is the same as stupid is as stupid does.
And of course the best response is to recognize the situation as it really is, and learn from it, and change yourself.
