  • Noho Jenkins for verse 9
    That there is the creators way of being nice, hopeful and honest, because to be cursed by Gods Devine ruling authority is something man cannot undo, without Gods approval. You will know this by the suffering, unanswered prayers and the bitter taste of your own tears. God in Jesus name forgive me, pardon me for my wrongs and teach me your ways - Amen
  • Paulpaulpaulpaul for verse 9
    What this means is simply this, if you take or "ROB" from one of my children you will be cursed. This would follow along perfectly with what verse ten and eleven are saying. Before I was saved I had done this very thing and I was cursed for years until I came to the table.
