  • This Hebrew word has been difficult to correctly translate. However, it is generally accepted that it means: to pause or to reflect at the end of the 'verse' (on what has just been read or sung). At times, it could also mean some type of musical term or provide musical direction. We know that Psalms, in Hebrew, are poetic in nature and often sung, especially to musical accompaniment: (see James 5:13). Also when the Lord spent his final hours with his disciples in the Upper Room, at the end of their meal, they had sung a hymn (very likely a Psalm) & then went out to the Mt. of Olives. However, Selah could possibly allow for some thanks and praise, as was suggested to you.
  • Mishael on Psalms 91
    I'm thinking of Passover tonight and Jesus's sacrifice for us. When it was finished, the veil in the Temple was torn from top to bottom! It was so huge no priest could've done that. It was a statement of great magnitude. Jesus has done so much for me. I want to be more like Him.
  • Vanasha Little on 1 Corinthians 11:26
    Selah, what does it mean as a word in general???

    Someone or an angel told me that it is the same as saying, thank you Jesus, or praises to my Lord and savior or hallelujah thank you Jesus. Is that true???
  • Joel on John 1:10
    The One that Made the world ( The word Himself was in the world ) The world could not recognize Him( The Word)
  • T'Ann - in Reply on John 1:10
    I think Jesus is the Word also. Look at 1st John 5 and Revelation 19:13
    God Bless
  • Joel on John 1:1
    Your word is you, we can only know you by your word, God is God because He is the God of His word, He said Heaven and earth will pass away but none of His word will go without fulfillment. His is what make Him the God. I honour my word more than my name..............
  • Dianne Bailey on 1 Corinthians 11
    Yes that is so true that a woman hair is her glory
  • Chris on Genesis 1
    Well, there is no God to begin with, so...
  • George on 1 Chronicles 16:12
    What is god saying
    I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.
  • Sheri on Philippians 4:13
    Everyone says that we can do all things. But not everything is profitable for us to do. Whenever I read this verse, I always get the sense that I can do anything that is profitable for me. Jesus will give me the strength to do those things that strengthen me. Whether strengthening of my spirit, body or soul. The word used is which, not who.
  • Mishael 1 Corinthians 612 1023 - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient; all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
    (10:23) ...but all things edify not.

    Now in chapter 11 quite a lot is said about women's hair and men's. Is it good or bad?
  • Chris - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    Re: Mishael on 1 Cor 11:3 >. This is 'dangerous' ground where even angels (& some preachers) fear to tread, but it is Scripture & should be examined. Poor apostle Paul has taken a beating over the years by many women over this passage, as it not only speaks of hair length, but of covering the head & the position of man and woman in creation & in God's Sight. Firstly, head covering when praying or prophesying, is not a cultural matter, but a spiritual & positional one before God & the angels (vv 3-11). We have now made it cultural, thereby largely doing away with it in our meetings.
  • Mishael - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    I haven't a clue. Maybe it's because Paul had Gentiles, Greeks and Jews in his meetings. They argued about circumcision too. It must have been hard to turn their minds from law to grace.
  • Sheri - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    In verse 16, Paul says that if you would like to argue about hair length, it is up to you as this has nothing to do with God's people. We judge by the heart, not outward appearance. I cannot imagine Jesus complaining about how long or short someone's hair is.
  • Chris - in Reply on Philippians 4:13
    Secondly, the length of hair is not the 'long hair' we are familiar with, but when he adorns himself as a woman (of those days) did (v14). But if man (read: anyone reading Paul's passage on this issue) is contentious about what Paul has said, Paul writes that he has no other option to give nor from God's Church. (v 16). There may have been some who were under a Nazarite vow which included the non-cutting of the hair (Numbers 6). But whether Paul was referring to any of those in the Church, or if they, after completion of their vow, failed to also trim their hair, is not certain. But what is clear from 1 Cor 11, is that there is an order in the Church - we choose to obey it or not.
  • Barbara Parnell - in Reply on Philippians 4
    My pastor always says if I give you a verse, you take the chapter, when we read Philippians 4 especially verse 13 we also need to read verse 11 & 12. Paul speaks about having it all and living well and of having nothing and suffering yet knowing he can do all things, he can survive and continue to spread the word of Jesus no matter what the circumstances in his life because Jesus gives him the strength to do His (Jesus') work. Because Jesus is leading him and keeping him on the path through all obstacles.
  • Sheri - in Reply on Philippians 4
    I completely agree that the Holy Spirit gives us the power to do whatever God asks us to do. I was merely commenting on the word as translated.
  • Kimb on Revelation 12
    Yes God loves you, a love that surpasses our understanding. God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind. God bless you. I encourage you to read your Bible on scripture of what you are going through and read and read and read again and keep praying about it, I can testify to this, God will help you but you have to go to him and admit that you need him and he is just to deliver you. Praying and God bless you.

  • Camille on Psalms 70
    What does Jesus mean when he tells his tells his disciples and Matthew 24 eight when he saysBefore he comes will be the beginning of birth pains what would be the hidden meeting about this
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Psalms 70
    Camille Greetings, the coming kingdom of God when Christ returns in glory is likened to a woman in pain during childbirth. Then when the child is delivered the pain ceases and the woman is happy cause her child is born. She has Joy and forgets the former pain. at least that is how I see it and others might see different and be right.
    John 16:21 A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.
  • Adam on Genesis 1
    Luke 24:1-12 - Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. (Read More...)
  • Amanda on Acts 12:4
    i want to know the verses about taking someone. also, taking someone at the mid-point of their life. A marine that made it back from Iraq. Just the best guy you could ever meet and just out of the blue he's gone in his sleep (with no help). I want to know why he would take a father of a 6 yr old little girl that worship the ground he walked on. he was 33.
  • Johnny Luces on Exodus 12:17
    After 66 years I have come to the awareness of this command. I am not Jewish but I want to follow God commandments as instructed on Exodus 12:17 of the unleavened bread. I have eaten leavened bread this morning and I feel I have already violated the first thing God almighty instructed for me to do. What to do now? After 66 years and knowledge has passed me.. Lord please be merciful on my soul.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Sir, you've done no wrong. It's not what we eat that defiles us, but what comes out of the mouth (Matthew 15:11). It's the evil that comes out of the mouth that defiles because it comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something I have learned about the so called greatest commandments spoken in Matthew Chapter 22. Those are not commandments at all. Our English bibles look like they are commands, but in the Greek text, they are not in command form but are statements of fact. Jesus was not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. What He was saying is that if you have born of His Spirit, you will love the Lord you God, and you will love your neighbor. Not a command but statement of fact.
  • Jesse - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Sir, you've done no wrong. Jesus said (Matthew 15:11) that it is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a man, but what comes out. Food we eat does not defile us. It's what comes out of the mouth, the evil a person speaks, because that comes from the heart. Also, I want to share something else here that I have learned. The two "greatest commandments" in Matthew Chapter 22, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, and love thy neighbor, are not commands. Our bibles make it sound like they are commands, but the Greek text shows that they are not commands. Jesus is not commanding us to love Him or our neighbor. He's giving us a factual statement, you will love, if you have my Spirit in you. Fact!
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Exodus 12:17
    Someone asked Jesus what was the most important commandment.
    Matthew 22:36 - Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
    Matthew 22:37 - Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
    Matthew 22:38 - This is the first and great commandment.
    Matthew 22:39 - And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
    Matthew 22:40 - On these two commandments hang ALL the law and the prophets.
