4 For mine iniquities [`avon] are gone over [`abar] mine head [ro'sh]: as an heavy [kabed] burden [massa'] they are too heavy [kabad] for me. KJV-Interlinear
4 For my iniquities have gone over my head; like a heavy burden, they are too heavy for me. ESV
When Adam and Eve were in the garden, there was no sin. Without sin, there was no burden, no difficulty, no worry, no stress. In short, they did not have any concerns.
After sin however, problems began.
There are two words used in this verse for the word, heavy.
The first is, kabed, and the second is, kabad. Both words are very similar in nature.
The first refers to the severity and difficulty in terms of being too numerous.
The second refers to the severity and burdensome in terms of magnitude, as in heavy or weighty.
This verse is designed to demonstrate that the existence of sin, is the chief cause of all of the world’s problems.
This verse is also designed to demonstrate that all of your problems in life, in one form or another, are related to sin.
And finally, the existence of sin, which leads to the existence of problems and difficulties, as a magnitude and weight which is far above your head, and far beyond your ability to deal with them.
Man will never be able to correct the problems of this world. There will always be problems. There will always be the poor. There will always be the handicapped. There always be factions and divisions between people. And because of sin, there will never ever be any human solution.
No matter what our sincerity, no matter what our intentions, no matter what government programs we try to put in place, there will never ever be a solution to any of the problems that people or government try to correct.
Therefore, there is only one obvious solution. And that solution comes from someplace beyond human ability. And of course that beyond, refers to God.
Jesus Christ is the only solution. And our access to that solution, is through Jesus Christ.
And we obtain a solution, first through faith in Christ, which is salvation.
And second, through spiritual growth by means of a daily study.
And third, through living in the fellowship sphere, which is the environment of the spiritual life.
And fourth, by growing up in our spiritual life and completing the essence within our self.
And fifth, by eventually obtaining a resurrection body, which by the way permanently separates us from sin.
And you could add one more step, which would be our entrance into the new universe, which puts this entire old universe and everything related to it, permanently behind.
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
