Fragrant Apples of Gold

Proverbs 15:23 AMP
23 A man has joy in making an apt answer, and a word spoken at the right moment—how good it is!

Proverbs 25:11 NASB
11 Like apples of gold in settings of silver is a word spoken in right circumstances.

Song of Solomon 2:5 NASB
5 Sustain me with raisin cakes, refresh me with apples, because I am lovesick.

Refresh me O Lord
With Your word
Breathe on me the sweet fragrance of life
Revive, refresh, restore my soul
with fragrant apples
Your precious apples of gold.

Your word, Lord, breathed
Spoken at the right time
Brings life
O how good it is
What a joy and delight!

The above scripture and word from the Lord prompted me to look more closely at the relationship between fragrant apples, and the breathing in and out of God’s words. I was surprised at the study of the word apple from the verses above.

From  Prov 25:11

  • apple[08598] = apple associated with fragrance
    *From [05301] = to breathe, cause to breathe out
    and [01054] = place of apples located in Judah[03063] = praise/He shall be praised (assigned to the tribe of Judah Josh 15)
  • spoken[01696] = to declare, converse, command, promise, warn, threaten, prophesy, sing

These apples of gold contain a fragrance that can be breathed in and out!

2 Corinthians 2:14-15 AMP
14 But thanks be to God, Who in Christ always leads us in triumph [as trophies of Christ’s victory] and through us spreads and makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of God everywhere,
15 For we are the sweet fragrance of Christ [which exhales] unto God, [discernible alike] among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing …

Job 33:4 AMP
4 [It is] the Spirit of God that made me [which has stirred me up], and the breath of the Almighty that gives me life [which inspires me].

From  Job 33:4

  • spirit[07307] = breath, wind, to inspire prophetically
    *From [07306] = to smell, scent, perceive odor
  • breath[05397] = spirit, divine inspiration
  • gives life [02421] = revives, quickens, restores, refreshes
    • from sickness, discouragement, faintness, death

 

Apples of gold are breathed by the Holy Spirit. They contain the fragrance of Christ, bringing life. These apples refresh, quicken, revive and restore from sickness, discouragement, faintness, and/or death. They bring joy. Isn’t it interesting that the “place of apples”, the place where these apples are “breathed” is in Judah, assigned to the tribe of Judah = praise/He is to be praised?!
