    Mark 6:19; Job 14:7-8


    Mark 6:19 King James Version (KJV)

    19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:

    Mark 6:19 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    19 Herodias had a grudge against John and wanted to kill him. But she could not do it

    These are my thoughts.

    Sometimes God’s will prevents certain evil but she still had a sinful heart because of her hate.

    Job 14:7-8 King James Version (KJV)

    For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.

    Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;


    Job 14:7-8 Good News Translation (GNT)


    There is hope for a tree that has been cut down;
     it can come back to life and sprout.
    Even though its roots grow old,
     and its stump dies in the ground,


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts, please share yours.


    7 This is possible if the roots of the stump are not removed. We can but cut down or hurt but as long as we are rooted in the Lord we can grow back up again.


    8 Even at the worst the tree can still grow back up as long as it has its roots. We may get to the point where we don’t feel like we can grow anymore but if we look to Christ then we will grow up again. Sometimes God does His best growing when we are broken apart and only have Him to rely on.

    Phil 1:6; Philemon 23-25


    Philippians 1:6 King James Version (KJV)

    Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:


    Philippians 1:6 Lexham English Bible (LEB)


    convinced of this same thing, that the one who began a good work in you will finish it until the day of Christ Jesus,

    These are my thoughts.

    We need to know that submitting and growing in Jesus isn’t a one time event but a life long journey we go thru.

    Philemon 23-25 King James Version (KJV)

    23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;

    24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.

    25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.




    Philemon 23-25 New Matthew Bible (NMB)


    23 Epaphras, my fellow-prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends greetings to you, 24 as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my helpers.

    25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirits. Amen.

    Sent from Rome by the hands
    of Onesimus,
    a servant.

    23 Epaphras was the man God used to start the church of Colosse he was Paul’s cell mate. He may have went to Rome to minister to Paul being arrested also, this making it possible.


    24 Mark went on mission trip with Paul but left and then spent time with Barnabas and would later write down the gospel after connecting with Peter. Luke would connect well with Paul, maybe his doctor on call and went with him for this reason but would later write the gospel and Acts. Aristarchus was also a prisoner with Paul, he went with Paul to Rome to collect the money for the church in Jerusalem and they were arrested. Demas was friend of Paul but would later desert him leaving following after Jesus and turning to following his desire for the world.


    25 Grace only comes thru Jesus and by no other.

    Mark 6:18; Job 15:4-6


    Mark 6:18 King James Version (KJV)

    18 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.



    Mark 6:18 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    18 But John had told him, “It isn’t right for you to take your brother’s wife!” So, in order to please Herodias, Herod arrested John and put him in prison.


    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts.

    Sometimes doing what is right has serve results. John was put into prison for doing right, people don’t like to hear what they are doing is wrong but as Christians we should share as God leads us, which John did.

    Job 15:4-6 King James Version (KJV)

    Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.

    For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.

    Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee.



    Job 15:4-6 Good News Translation (GNT)


    If you had your way, no one would fear God;
     no one would pray to him.
    Your wickedness is evident by what you say;
     you are trying to hide behind clever words.
    There is no need for me to condemn you;
     you are condemned by every word you speak.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

    4 Eliphaz thought this of Job, this was far from the truth. Job just knew God’s holiness and how we cant truly by our own efforts pray to God, we can thru Christ and by what Job knew because God allows us to. Without grace we cant truly pray to God.


    5 Again he attacks Job. To many times without knowing the full situation we cant attack out of ignorance as he does. Job is righteous, God calls him that in chapter one but Job was not perfect and he was currently struggling. Satan wants to make us feel lower then we are and that is exactly what this man was doing for Job by twisting the words of him.


    6 We are condemned by our sin but by grace found in Christ we are redeemed. Job was saved because he had faith in the Lord and seeked after His truth and tried to live the best he could for Him.

    Mark 6:17; Job 15:1-3


    Mark 6:17 King James Version (KJV)

    17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her.


    Mark 6:17 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    17 Herod had earlier married Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip.


    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts.

    Herod took his brother’s wife, it was Jewish tradition and law that if the brother passed away that then the brother took his sister in law as his wife and by doing this it meant she was taken care of but Herod took his brother’s wife which means his brother hadn’t passed away but he stole his wife and took her for his own. 

    Job 15:1-3 King James Version (KJV)

    15 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,

    Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?

    Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?


    Job 15:1-3 Good News Translation (GNT)

    The Second Dialogue


    15 1-2 Empty words, Job! Empty words!
    No one who is wise would talk the way you do
     or defend himself with such meaningless words.


    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society


    These are my thoughts, please share yours.


    1 Eliphaz the Temanite speaks his mind on this; he doesn’t really know Job but chooses to share what he thinks. We may have to deal with people like him we face hard times.


    2 He is saying that he has to say something because he is wise. The wise often listen then to speak, true wise people what for proper to time to share or when people ask them. This man loved hearing his words and enjoyed thinking his was wise. Wise don’t speak on things they don’t fully know.


    3 Job didn’t claim to be wise at this point and he was trying to understand what God was letting happen to him and then his friends attacked him and he defended himself against their attack. It isn’t unwise to defend ourseleves but wisdom discerns when it is helpful or harmful.
