Song 5:15a His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold:
What does this verse have to do with the letter samech and bleached white, juxtaposition of Scripture, scripture and grace and truth - Listen to find out
This is the Truth Network treasurers in the song of songs, which is oh are we going to get the hell we hear with sonic verse 15 first and the fifth chapter of the song of Solomon, and then 15 letter is not sonic and if you look at that sonic section you can see United two references to being upheld in the sonic section of the hundred 19 Psalm and I think you're gonna see that quickly in the sonic verse of the fifth chapter of the song of Solomon. As we have here a description of the beloved of of our beloved of Jesus and so many different ways. I think you could write books and books on just what this all is saying here is just absolutely marvelous and certainly I think you're going to enjoy all the different commentaries that that what people have said about this verse but anyway verse 15 reads in English will rated his legs that some to Betty Appel by right.
His legs are as pillars of marble set upon sockets of fine gold. That's the first part of the verse will cover the second part later because this is enough to make a book right here so I think it's always helpful to get some insight from different commentators obviously spent a lot of time meditating and praying about these and so you know, one of the neat things I always liked look at the Jewish commentaries and here they point out that you know if this is the Messiah, which it clearly is. And they know that then. It is also going to be the word of God and so I Rossi points out that this has everything to do with the idea of juxtaposition or that Scripture is an inexact order and hip upheld with sockets of gold. In other words, everything is exactly where it is supposed to be every jot, every table is exactly where it's supposed to be and I love that I actually love that it is you know it's it's a neat meditation to look at all these attributes of Christ as as the Scriptures themselves. In fact, there's another Jewish commentator that made reference. We were talking about, you know, his belly of ivory. They said that you know the middle of the Scriptures. The Psalms and in the end that have you know the are the soft part of the body there, but there also. No absolutely bright shining. I know there again you could spend a lot of time meditating on anything. He's because they're all Jesus and him and hug you to get better than that. So I love love love what Matthew Henry said about the legs of bitter pillars of marble. Is he makes reference to you know Jesus having grace and truth to pillars that everything is built on it from John chapter 1 and the references that 68 Psalm as being God on the move. You know which again existed spectacular. So I you know I think as you look at this. You can look at any section of Scripture because it is Jesus right. Hence the you know it's really really really spectacular in my opinion, so I as you might guess, decided to study the word pillars in the study and study the word marble and and the idea of legs and so legs.
Interestingly, from my standpoint of her. Mary says and says his legs legs in Hebrew are exactly the same word as streets, so there is a way to get to someplace specifically to walk with God, I mean that you know that the really neat thing is, as we walk with God like unit did you know then were going to go someplace headset so you know, the idea that these legs are taking a someplace that fits perfectly with the idea of the next utterance which is the know let the animals that creep upon the earth. Well, you can't help but think that all the stuff that got legs happened there on the sixth day in this particular utterance that lines up with this you know that that obviously all the things that move upon the earth were made on that particular utterance and legs were big part of that ice that lines up beautifully with me, but also the idea of walking with God because there you know that's what's better than that you know of being able to express ourselves with God in him expressing himself with us so legs are are a big part of that pillars you know he is the word Solomon did the same word as the pillars of fire and the pillars of smoke and you know that that and again. Solomon was big on pillars right you might know that he made these beautiful pillars in the in the temple in you know they had all their significance and he had in a two pillars and ensure he would talk about you know Boaz trying to give you the name of the other pillar but anyway both of those had significant meaning, and you can think about that but I love the idea of marble okay in the end of that word marble in Hebrew is actually just to Shands and that means to bleach something absolutely white so that would be alabaster or in this case it's translated marble and so this idea of of something that's absolutely pure and there's no doubt that his legs are pure and they're taking you to pure places and and I love the idea also that marble throughout the centuries it has been associated or symbolized in immortality and the idea of King David's I mean that the marble King David. You can picture those marble legacy of his that are obviously the pillars that hold him up out of you know, eternally. But you know it's it's it's really a neat thing to think that these legs give us immortality right that is the that the the support and the being upheld like the sonic idea of all that is on this marble and then set upon sockets of fine gold. Okay, these legs there pillars of marble set upon sockets of fine gold and and beautifully beautifully beautifully. The word sockets. You may not be surprised. His main letter is the sonic because of course that is later going to be supported is without idea of the sonic which is this unbelievable strength that God has and again I would urge anybody to go read the verses in the sonic sections begin idea of why that sockets makes perfect sense that this is the been a be the structure that supports Jesus's legs and you know course, he's all the things he is the sonic eat.
You know he is the shammy it's all the things and of course Feingold.
We talked about many times has to do with you know what his word is true from the beginning and all you know. It is noted that that that idea of that the Scripture itself is on a foundation of pure gold right that that that that's true from the beginning and every one of thy righteous judgments endures forever. In other words, since it's on such absolute foundation and I couldn't help but think of you know what a great foundation, ye saints of the Lord, you know we we found in his excellent word. I don't remember the exact words of the bit you know there is a mean in so many different ways.
You know you just see that like oh my goodness and and so is he as you think about these legs and again I'm I'm in a season of walking a lot with God and and asking him, you know things as we express ourselves back and forth and so last night after a dinner, we ate dinner really late and what we call a bunch of fish. By the way, which was really fun. And each time I caught a fish.
I couldn't help but think of the spark of God and most known.
We had talked about the fish in the previous episode this week, but anyway I was excited about all that, and I was on this walk with God and I decided you know where I live in Stokes Tagus really darkens were not by big-city and so when you get really dark and I went back into the woods for minute and saw billion stars. I mean billion stars.
I don't know if you've looked in the sky when is. I hope you have in some places, like you to go to the Outer Banks of North Carolina are way out of the ocean on a cruise ship and all the lights are off like oh man, I mean you can see that this but that you know why they say you can count the stars.
Of course, you think about you know in Bible times, and when a lot of city lights and they could look up there in the wilderness and see all my goodness, although stars but as I was looking at those stars. I couldn't help but reflect and just say oh wow yeah Jesus you have all those stars in your hands right. We dug by the previous verse that that how you know on the day that he created the sun and the moon and all the stars that, though that's what's in his hands and ended his hands in like how big is he that he has all that and and as I was just expressing myself to him. I was thinking back of the word that I can unfortunately your God's given me to store my heart of these verses of the song of Solomon to think of him in that way and I you know I just got like oh man is blown away, standing there looking realizing the magnificent of the heavens, magnificent in this of the heavens and and seeing the stars and I couldn't help but note that that when you see God somewhere whatever you seem right. That's the idea vision.
You've now refined at the you know that that idea what you does looked up in the sky and in so you know, the more refined you get if you got to Sheehan right it would be bleach white is white legs exist all remarkable stuff and I think that you could just meditate meditate meditate on the different ways that these pillars are the word of God that these two pillars are Jesus's legs and support so very, very much. You know it's it's amazing that all you know forever all Lord by their word is established in the heavens. I mean it and it's based on you know these pillars of grace and truth. I mean, it's also cool is this comes together.
Thank you so much for listening and I hope you see it today
