Hi S Spencer,

No problem sir. Here are a couple sections from the Apocrypha books that I know of. A couple good Scriptures on death of those who are with the Lord.

Wisdom of Solomon 2:23-24, Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-9, Wisdom of Solomon 4:7-16, Wisdom of Solomon 5:15-16,

Ecclesiasticus 14:11-18, Ecclesiasticus 19:18-20, Ecclesiasticus 41:3,

A couple from the Book of Enoch: 58.3 And the righteous will be in the light of the sun and the chosen in the light of eternal life. And there will be no end to the days of their life and the days of the Holy will be without number.

62.13 And the righteous and the chosen will be saved on that Day and they will never see the faces of the sinners and the lawless from then on.

62.14 And the Lord of Spirits will remain over them and with that Son of Man they will dwell, and eat, and lie down, and rise up, forever and ever.

62.15 And the righteous and chosen will have risen from the earth, and will have ceased to cast down their faces, and will have put on the Garment of Life.

62.16 And this will be a Garment of Life from the Lord of Spirits; and your garments will not wear out, and your glory will not fail, in front of the Lord of Spirits.

As these are just some things besides the verses in the NT we have. Of coarse the ungodly and those who are against the Lord death is detailed to not be good throughout all Scripture.

God Bless Spencer.

Hello Catherine,

Seeing your post a verse comes to mind. Though it is not exactly what you state about to "mourn birth". Ecclesiastes 7:1.

I know of a couple other things about death being "good". For those who are with the Lord of coarse. If you're interested let me know.

God Bless.

Where does it say in the bible to mourn birth and celebrate death?

Hello Byron. As you know the account prior to verse 14, Abraham subsequently named that place in the land of Moriah as "Jehovah Jireh". And we generally know this Name as another compound Name for God: Jehovah Who Provides - just as God provided the ram to be sacrificed in lieu of Isaac.

And also in verse 14, Moses quotes a proverb that was used during his time in remembrance of that wonderful day of God's provision to Abraham: "In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen". In Hebrew, Jehovah Jireh (at its root) translates to "God is seen, or God has seen". So, because of the all-seeing Eye of God, He is always aware of every need, & particularly so in this matter of Abraham taking his faith & obedience to the extreme point in raising his knife against his son. His faith didn't flinch because he trusted in Jehovah Jireh to be present at that time & would provide or intervene or even bless him with another son. There was a very active faith shown here. But because his son was spared, Abraham named that place as he did, & others after him knew that place as the 'mount where the Lord's Presence & Intervention was seen'.

And of course, this speaks to us of God's faithful Presence in each of our lives, no matter what we're going through in life or what 'mountain' of griefs lie before us; and it can only be the seed of real faith in God that provokes Him to do what is best & in His Will. We can be assured that His Arm of Salvation & Providence will be "seen" before our eyes during our trials & God becomes very personal & precious to us as our YHWH Jireh.


Ron's comment on 2021-04-28 14:34:27:

Byron, In the mount of LORD, it shall be seen, means to see, or, to see to a thing, or provide. It means in faith we can be fully confident without any doubt that our needs, God will Himself see to it the same way He did for Abraham. That is why Abraham called the place Jehovahjireh, meaning the LORD will provide.

I was not blessed with children so I can not even imagine how Abraham was feeling. God had told him to travel to this place to sacrifice his only son. Isaac asked his father, where is the sacrifice and Abraham told him God will provide himself a lamb. When he had placed Isaac on the wood and had the knife in his hand God sent an angel and stopped him and provided a ram. What faith it took for Abraham to have in God. There was another sacrifice, same as God asked of Abraham but God did not stop it, and His only begotten Son He gave provides us salvation, being rescued from the power and penalty of sin and eternal life with Him, in His Son Jesus the Lamb God provided Himself, for us.

God bless, Ron

What do you think this means? "In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen."

PTL.... For The Lords Living word That through the shed blood of His son Jesus Christ. .... We are victorious over the enemy 's snare!


Derrick Times's comment on 2013-06-10 12:19:39:

They have replaced the true name,because salvation can only be gained through his holy name

ddd's comment on 2010-12-07 15:17:51:

Genesis 22:14 "And Abraham called the place Jehovah - jireh"

Why do so many bible translations, this one included remove the name Jehovah and replace it with something else. I wonder if it's to lessen the fact that God's real name is Jehovah, or Yahweh
