Psalms 5:9



9 For
there is no faithfulness
[kuwn] in their mouth; [peh] their
[qereb] part is very wickedness; [havvah] their throat [garown] is an
[pathach] sepulchre; [qeber] they flatter [chalaq] with
their tongue.
[lashown] KJV-Interlinear



9 There is
nothing reliable in what they say; Their inward part is destruction itself;
Their throat is an open grave; They flatter with their tongue. NASB





In contrast to people who read and study and learn the scriptures, which are the word of God, which is the truth of life, then there are those who do not read the scriptures, they do not know the word of God, they do not know or understand the truth of life.

Therefore they have only lies to express from their inward part, their soul, and then their their throat as an open grave or their attitude toward life, to their tongue, the actual expression of what they know.

But in lies, deceit is always at the forefront of all evil.

Therefore the tongue expresses flattery, ‘chalaq,’ which refers to smooth stones for tossing lots (like in rolling dice), meaning to be smooth, to divide, to take away, to flatter.

And this, when combined with grave, ‘pathach,’ which is an open grave, ready to receive its occupant, indicates that the tongue is the deceptive element used to take life away, to draw others into the untruths of the beliefs of the evil person who does not know truth.

When truth is expressed it is there for all to accept or reject. Truth is never there to draw people in without their own free will decision.

Lies, on the other hand, have to draw people in through deception. If it were not for deception, then lies would have no followers.

Through smooth words, lies try to entice people into false promises, false concepts, false philosophies, false beliefs, false principles, and since anything false is dead to reality, then those who follow it, run straight into a dysfunctional life, ending up with nothing.

But truth is often times boring, and the enticements of the world are, well, enticing.

Anyone with false beliefs cannot be trusted, cannot be confided in. Their thoughts are false, their motivations are false, their words are false. They have no honorable conviction.

When their inward parts, their soul, is full of false, then their outward parts, their actions cannot be any better than false. The sum of false parts, is false.

Depravity, immorality, corruption of the whole, begins with the core life, the soul. And from depravity, the grave, comes corruption and putridness, and into it goes the same. Nothing good is ever found in the grave.




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.
