"Whom shall God teach to knowledge, and whom shall He make to understand doctrine? For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little:" Isaiah 28:9a & 10.
To learn how to study God's Word precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little, and there a little we must learn to use the Strong's Concordance because it has all the words in the Bible, where they are found in God's Word, and what these words means in their original Hebrew or Greek language.
