  • Andy G van den Berg on Matthew 4:7
    Matthew 4:6.

    Lahniya McKithen is looking for a better understanding of Matthew 4:6.

    The word 'lest' means 'in order that you not'. An example of lest is when you bring an umbrella in order to avoid getting wet.

    It means: with the intention of preventing something undesirable to avoid the risk of something.

    In Matthew 4:6 it meant that angels would protect Christ that He would not hurt his feet against a stone.
