“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:”
King James Version (KJV)
Maurice W Armstrong's comment on 2020-07-15 03:03:26:
You cannot build, where there is no foundation. you cannot insert doors or windows where there are no walls. Everything must be done step by step. First things first.
You cannot build a roof if there is no structure with walls to support the weight of the roof.
So too, every precept must be upon precept, and you cannot add a precept where there are no precepts. To walk you must first be able to stand, to run you must first be able to walk. Stand, walk, run.
Growth and maturity come with the process of time.
Nothing just happens. Precept must be upon precept.

God, in His infinite wisdom, knows that we mere mortals cannot take all his instruction at once! He is saying here, I believe, that we need to build upon His Word one little idea action at a time, until such time as we are together with Him!

It says Common English Bible 28 10 Tzav la tzav tzav la tzav kav la kav kav la kav z eir sham z eir sham There are no such words on Hebrew these are just sounds that babies make read verse 9 To whom will God teach knowledge To whom will he explain the message To those just weaned from milk To those who have hardly outgrown the breast and then in verse 10 the prophet says that our opinion and talk about God and what He wants from us is just baby gibberish and the challenge then in the chapter is to feed on the real spiritual food that we as adult Christians need Paul says in 1 Corinthians 3 2 I have fed you with milk and not with meat for hitherto ye were not able to bear it neither yet now are ye able Mature believers need to grow in Grace every day

I think it means chapter by chapter if you are in a babe stage of your walk

The text is simply saying scripture should be used to interpret scripture. The Holy Bible is a book of harmony and other scriptures must support the original verse to get a correct interpretation. In other words, one shouldn't take a text and expound on it without another scripture to support its message.

It's teling us that we have to clear our ground one at a time, because we are fighting a strategic enemy, we too have to be strategic. we fighting an organized enemy, we too have to be organize.

Perhaps one of the most precarious references in the Bible, along side of Job 2:10 and some others. Thankfully Jesus makes it clear about someone who "comes...hears...and does these sayings" (Precepts?), digs deep and lays a foundation that supports the dwelling which will never falter.

I feel that it is very insightful and informative
Pastor Nick's comment on 2011-07-01 11:56:28:
When I read this I see that God is sitting in judgement and these drunken prophets and priests can't teach anyone. The fact the the precept upon precept became judgement to them shows that a drunk preist couldn't teach the way God intended for his doctrines to be taught. so the precept upon precept to them a stumbling block.
