Today’s Old Testament chronological reading is in Genesis 15 and 16.
The Psalms/ Proverbs reading is in Psalm 29.
The New Testament reading is in Matthew 21.
From the Hebrew root word studies for Gen 15:1 –
It is so interesting to me that both shield, magen, and reward, sakar, in Hebrew, involve protection. The shield that protects the seed, is wisdom, as the seed walks with the wise instead of his own foolish peer group, so that he continues to maturity and is not destroyed. Let us just remember who we are – the children (seed) of God, not the adults of God!
That YHVH God Himself is Abram’s reward, means that He is the One acting as the protective covering over his head. No matter what circumstances happen in this life, the Creator and Ruler of the universe, our very own Abba Daddy, has us well-guarded!
Hebrew root word parables.
After these things the word of YHVH came unto Abram in a vision, saying, “Fear not, Abram: I am your shield, and your exceeding great reward.” Gen 15:1
