The Eye of the Soul

August 29, 2016

Luke 11:34 AMPC … Your eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye (your conscience) is sound and fulfilling its office, your whole body is full of light; but when it is not sound and is not fulfilling its office, your body is full of darkness.

From NetBible Lk 11:34

  • lamp[3088] = lamp likened to an eye, which shows the body which way to move and turn
  • sound[573] = single(in union, fixed on Christ), clear
  • not sound[4190] =diseased, blind, evil

Your word, O Lord, is a lamp to my feet
And a light for my path.
Ps 119:105

Let my heart hold fast Your wordsPro 4:4
The unfolding of Your words gives lightPs 119:130
Your words in my heart = The eye of my soul.

Help me to keep and guard Your words
As the apple of my eye
A most prized possession
That I may live
Pro 7:2
Pleasing in Your sight. –Heb 13:20-21

Proverbs 7:2 AMPC … Keep my commandments and live, and keep my law and teaching as the apple (the pupil) of your eye.

From NetBible Pro 7:2

  • *“the little man in your eye.” Traditionally this Hebrew idiom is translated into English as “the apple of your eye” = your most prized possession
    => The point is that the teaching must be the central focus of the disciple’s vision and attention(eye).
  • Keep[08104] = guard, give heed, obey

Kept

October 29, 2014

Isaiah 43:1-3 AMP
1 But now [in spite of past judgments for Israel’s sins], thus says the Lord, He Who created you, O Jacob, and He Who formed you, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed you [ransomed you by paying a price instead of leaving you captives]; I have called you by your name; you are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you.
3 For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt [to the Babylonians] for your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba [a province of Ethiopia] in exchange [for your release].

Do not be afraid
Those who are Mine
Are kept through the deep waters
Are kept through the fire
Are kept and not forsaken!

Those who are Mine
Are kept because they trust Me
And have set their love upon Me
They have a personal knowledge of My mercy and love.

Do not be afraid
Those who are Mine
Are kept as the apple of My eye
Safe and hidden beneath My wings!

Keep me as the apple of Your eye; Hide me under the shadow of Your wings. -Ps17:8

Psalm 91:1,14-15 AMP
1 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose power no foe can withstand].

14 Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.

From NetBible Ps 91:1,14-15

  • *  In this psalm an individual (perhaps a priest) addresses one who has sought shelter in the Lord and assures him that God will protect him from danger (vv. 1-13). In vv. 14-16 God himself promises to keep his loyal follower safe.
  • * The Lord is compared here to a bird who protects its young under the shadow of its wings (see v. 4).
  • *  The divine name used here is “Shaddai” (שַׁדַּיshadday; see also Ps 68:14). Shaddai (or El Shaddai) is the mighty king (sovereign judge) of the world who grants life/blesses and kills/judges. In Genesis he blesses the patriarchs with fertility and promises numerous descendants. Outside Genesis he both blesses/protects and takes away life/happiness.
  • dwells[03427] = abides, remains, have one’s abode, to marry (give a dwelling to)
  • set his love[02836] = clings to, will not let go, devoted to

Word Study

From NetBible Isa 26:3

  • keep[05341]= guard with fidelity, watch over, protect
  • perfect peace[07965] = complete peace, safety
    with God especially in covenant relationship – entering into a relationship of wholeness/ unity

    *From Zech 2:8

    • the apple (pupil) of the eye[0892] = gate
      The pupil is one of the most vulnerable and valuable parts of the body, so for Judah to be considered the “pupil” of the Lord’s eye is to raise her value to an incalculable price (cf. NLT “my most precious possession”).

From NetBible Song 1:15, 5:12, 4:1

  • eyes like doves
    * The comparison has to do with gentleness and purity, as well as longing and simplicity

    * like doves[03123]
    (apparently from the warmth of their mating – like the warmth/effervesce from wine)* this may be a comparison of sense, usually suggesting that the dove is a symbol for purity and that the eyes of a person are the windows of their soul or character, that is, the bride has a pure character as can be seen through her eyes.

From NetBible Mt 6:22
If you eye is single

  • single[573]= sound, whole, clear, pure, true

your whole body will be full of light.

  • full of light[5460] = of a bright character, lustrous
    *full of truth and its knowledge, together with the spiritual purity associated with it

From NetBible Ps 123:1

To You I lift up my eyes

  • lift up[05375] = marry, desire, long for

From NetBible Ps 86:11

give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.

  • undivided heart[03161] = heart joined, united, married
    to fear the Lord’s name
  • fear[03372] = to stand in awe of, reverence, honour, respect

Delight in the Fear of the LORD

December 31, 2010

Psalm 33:18 AMP Behold, the Lord’s eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness.

Beautiful in His sight
Held in His gaze
The apple of His eye
Sheltered -Ps 91:1
Covered beneath His wings -Ps 17:8; Prv 7:1-2

Treasured and greatly desired
His delight -Ps 45:11; Ps 147:11

 

Is the one who
… Bows down in delight before the King.

A sweet incense
A living sacrifice -Eph 5:1-2; Rom 12:1-2
Delight in the fear of the LORD
Delight in the Word -Ps 119:16; Mt 4:4
Savor the wonder and awe of the Kings presence
Upheld in His mighty right hand

Lord Jesus prepare our hearts to bow down in delight at Your feet before Your throne. Let our worship be as incense, pleasing and acceptable in Your sight. Let Your word be the joy of our hearts, that our lips may praise You. Help us abide, sheltered beneath Your wings, kept as the apple of Your eye in the wonder and awe of Your presence, upheld by You mighty right hand in the fullness of joy.

May the God of peace … the great Shepherd of the sheep … make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen. -Heb 13:20-21 (NKJV)

Isaiah 11:3 His delight is in the fear of the LORD*, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears.

Psalm 112:1 Praise the LORD! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who delights greatly in His commandments.

Psalm 147:11 The LORD takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy.

Psalm 86:11-12 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, and I will glorify Your name forevermore.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.

Word Study

From: NetBible Isa 11:3
* The Hebrew text reads literally, “and his smelling is in the fear of the Lord.” In Amos 5:21 the Hiphil of רוּחַ (ruakh, “smell”) carries the nuance of “smell with delight, get pleasure from.” There the Lord declares that he does not “smell with delight” (i.e., get pleasure from) Israel’s religious assemblies, which probably stand by metonymy for the incense offered during these festivals. In Isa 11:3 there is no sacrificial context to suggest such a use, but it is possible that “the fear of the Lord” is likened to incense. This coming king will get the same kind of delight from obeying (fearing) the Lord, as a deity does in the incense offered by worshipers. Some regard such an explanation as strained in this context, and prefer to omit this line from the text as a virtual dittograph of the preceding statement.
