    In verse 10 these words are figurative because if they were taken literally, that would contradict with other Bible verses.

    Jesus preached to the unsaved, some believed some didn't, and He just kept walking and preaching, healing. Same with Paul. And others. No matter how hard it was, when it seemed no one was listening, they kept on, in the joy of the Lord.

    Vs. 11 especially speaks to me at a time when it is VERY difficult to find a place of worship that doesn't have a "subculture" of gossiping and backbiting. Many times the Pastor's are not aware that these "busy bodies" are eroding His Church. People ultimately leave the ministries. Sad to see this happening †
