14 Thus I was as a man ['iysh] that heareth [shama`] not, and in whose mouth [peh] are no reproofs [towkechah]. KJV-Interlinear
14 I have become like a man who does not hear, and in whose mouth are no rebukes. ESV
The description of the lonely victim intensifies, as he has been describing his openness to Gods inspection, and yet those who are closest to him as well as his friends and companions, put him at a distance, which compounds his helplessness and loneliness, and this leaves him vulnerable to those who would seek his life, which further isolates him.
As a man who is controlled by the sin nature, and has been indifferent toward the resources of the spiritual life, he hears nothing, because he does not listen, and in his own mouth there are no reproofs, because he refuses to see his own flaws and vulnerabilities.
And such is the nature of the individual who lives out of fellowship, and perceives himself as innocent or righteous, and certainly not subject to reproof by anyone, while refusing to acknowledge the isolation, that exists in his life.
Anyone who rejects God’s plan, and God’s design, by indifference or antagonism or the presumption that it does not apply to them, or they don’t need it, or what they already know is more than sufficient, then they will fail to recognize the pit and the isolation that they placed themselves in, and the intensification is not necessarily an emotional intensification, as it is a factual intensification, removing the individual further and further from the spiritual life, because of the negative pattern of life that they have chosen for themselves.
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.
