Chains, ‘natiyphah,’ means sweet balls, to drop or fall, drops, or to distil, as in the removal of juice dropping from plants. This is an expression for describing something that resembles drops when referring to accessories or ornaments such as jewelry, pearls, precious stones and such.

These things hang from the body as ear rings would hang from the ear, or ornaments that would hang from a necklace which is around the neck. The hanging portions are generally down around the shoulder or chest area, and thus the beauty of the ornaments are used to direct the eye to the body which is directly beneath the ornament.

And that is the objective of this accessory, as well as all of these accessories that we have been studying, which is to bring attention to ones self in a seductive and lustful manner.

The wearer wishes to draw attention to themselves in approbation, and the viewer wishes to glare or stare at the wearer while looking at the jewelry, but lusting for what is beneath. Everyone in effect uses this pattern as a decent way of displaying and watching. The outward display veils the inner sin.

Bracelets, ‘sherah,’ refer to bracelets for the hands and wrists. These types of bracelets usually have dangling items such as bells, that tinkle and twinkle, also in an effort to draw attention.

Mufflers, ‘ra alah,’ means to tremble or to shake. This applies to an ornament such as a veil, that is placed on the head, but hangs loose on the back or shoulders and thus flows or presents a flowing or trembling motion due to the motion of a walk or from wind, or from some form of movement.

All of these things speak of self-centeredness, the desire to bring attention to ones outward appearance, for the purpose of approbation and the sin of self-importance. These entice others into sins of lust or envy, or even hate or resentment in some cases.

Now, remember that jewelry items per se are not bad things. Only the intent and use can be put to evil purposes. The jewelry is not evil, but the person using it for arrogant or self-centered purposes, is the evil party.

 

 

 




 

Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

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 each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
