13 O spare [sha`ah] me, that I may recover strength [balag], before I go hence [yalak], and be no more. KJV-Interlinear
13 Look away from me, that I may smile again, before I depart and am no more!” ESV
The Psalm concludes with the petition, requesting God to look away. This is in regard to redirecting His judgment or punishment elsewhere.
And since God’s punishment is redirected elsewhere, then that leaves the door open for blessing.
This is important during ones life, but especially at the end of ones life so that the individual can enjoy his last days and years under brighter and more cheerful circumstances.
And that is quite possibly the best retirement that a person can have.
Study [by instruction],
to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]
a workman [student]
that need not be ashamed [ignorant],
rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
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.
