Psalm 7:15



15 He made
[karah] a pit, [bowr] and digged [chaphar] it, and is fallen [naphal]
into the ditch
[shachath] which he made. [pa`al] KJV-Interlinear


15 He has
dug a pit and hollowed it out, And has fallen into the hole which he made. NASB

Begin study:


The pit, ‘bowr,’ is a hunting trap. The hunter digs out a pit wide and deep and then covers it over with branches and leaves and such, so that it cannot be seen by his prey.

He then chases his prey in the direction of the pit so that the prey will cross it and fall into it, and the pit being so deep, the prey is hopelessly trapped, and then killed by the hunter, forever ending the life of the prey.

Evil makes the wicked person blind, such that he ends up digging his own pit, falling into the pit, and thus gets trapped and dies as a result of a plan that he himself made.

Evil is its own hunter and prey all wrapped up into one. The person who embraces it, makes himself the victim of his own pursuits. He causes his own failure and death.

And in this case, it is spiritual death that is in view here.

For unbelievers the spiritual death is their failure to believe in Christ thus condemning them to the Lake of Fire in the next life.

For believers who fail in their spiritual life, then their failure is their lack of spiritual growth, thus losing for them, the many additional rewards and blessings of eternity, not to mention the loss of blessings in this life.

God really does not have to do much of anything, because people bring all of their disaster onto themselves, by themselves.

It is true now, it was true in the past and if you have been following the Revelation study, then you know that those folks will bring their phenomenal disasters, onto themselves.

So, if you are indifferent or otherwise passive with regard to doctrine, then your problems are your own fault. You cannot blame anyone else, for any failure in your life. Likewise, if you have any semblance of success in your life, you have no right to claim credit for that either.

Gods grace is the source of all blessing.

Your spiritual dysfunction is the source of all of your cursing.



End of study





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.
