- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
55:22 Burden - All thy crosses, and cares, and fears, lay them upon the Almighty, by faith and prayer. He directs this speech to his own soul, and to all good men in like circumstances. Suffer - As he doth wicked men. Tho' he may for a season suffer them to be shaken, yet not to be overwhelmed.

I am not certain what is meant in the King James Version by 'burden'. Is this a material burden? What is the original Hebrew word and what does it mean? I have had a problem over this. Thank you in advance.

As we personally cope with life's problems and diligently seek to comfort others, we can have the same faith and conviction as the psalmist and throw all of our burden upon Jehovah and have faith that he will help.
Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-03-27 06:04:25:
Cast your burden on Yahweh, He will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved. The judgment against an evil work is not speedily executed, and that is why the children of men are quick to do evil. Yet God is watching, and bloody, and deceitful men will not live out half their days. Wait only upon God, and He will sustain you. Pray in the morning, at noon, and in the evening. He will not suffer the righteous to be moved. God delivered Daniel in the lions’ den, and He will deliver us, when we cry out to Him.
