In Lesson One we learned the first thing we do to to study God's Word is to
Read God's Word
In Lesson Two we learned from Isaiah 28:9-10, that we must
Put Precept upon precept,
Line upon line,
Here a little and there a little.
We also learned we must have a tool to help us find like words in Scriptures, and that tool is the Strong's Concordance
In Lesson Three, you learned how to use the Dictionary in the Strong's Concordance to find the Scriptures asked for, using the word L I G H T
Explantion of Lesson Four: Practice in building the skill of using the Strong's Dictionary to find like Hebrew numbers.
Instructions: In this lesson you will look up the word L I G H T in the Strong's Dictionary to find only like numbers and the Scriptures that match that same number.
For example, using the following Scripture: "Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path". Psalm 119:105. When you look up this number in the Dictionary next to the Scripture, Psalm 119:105 you find the Hebrew number is ___216___, and you also see the number is upright or straight up and down. All numbers for the Hebrew dictionary have this identifying feature. In contrast all Greek numbers are slanted or in italics.
Instructions: Write out five ( 5 ) complete Scriptures that use the same Hebrew number, 216, for the word light:
Remember, studying God's word precept upon precept, line upon line, here a little and there a little as Isaiah 28:9-10 shows us to do, we can find God's hidden truth for our walk for our day. What is the hidden truth you found for your own walk in the above Scriptures?
