The Lamedh file which  looks like this in the Hebrew l = Ox goad = has a smooth top and a sharp bottom.

1. You can learn from what the O.T. says in PRO 28:13; or what the N.T. says in 1JO 1:9; which is as follows:

PRO 28:13   He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, But he who confesses and forsakes [rebound and recovery] them will find compassion.

He who confesses and forsakes [rebound and recovery] them - will find compassion - which is mercy.

1JO 1:9  If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just or righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.

The smooth part of the Ox goad is learning the easy way which is rebound and recover.

2. The other end of the Ox goad is pointed which means you can, or rather, you will learn the hard way.

ISA 29:24 "And those who err in mind will know the truth, And those who criticize will accept instruction.

1. It's either, rebound and recovery (the smooth end of the Ox goad. 2. The faithfulness of God will discipline us or teach us the hard way, the pointed end of the Ox goad.

The Ox goad was used to keep the Ox moving and motivated as rebound and recovery or divine discipline does for the believer.

La'owlaam - there is your Ox goad letter Lamedh  and the word means the past or the future.

What is being said comes from eternity past, billions and billions of years ago, and also applies to eternity future, billions and billions of years from now.

When you see the word forever or eternal,  it means that what is being said applies to eternity past and eternity future.

Everlasting life has a beginning but no end. Whereas eternal life has no beginning and no end.

1JO 5:11  And the witness is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.

The day that you were born physically, you received everlasting life. Whereas the day that you were born again, God gave you eternal life, which was the life of Jesus Christ.

Even though TLJC overrules His natural laws whereby miracles take place, He never ever over rules or changes His promises of doctrine to us.

The same word which establishes and preserves the heavens and the earth also preserves the people of God in time of trouble.

There are traps and enemies waiting to destroy the believer in disaster testing.

It is a great virtue to do God the honor of resting in contentment as others conspire to destroy you.

This is a Hebrew idiom meaning - I have been disillusioned about people and things considered to be right and prosperous.

Doctrine teaches us how to appreciate and enjoy people rather than depend on them, JER 17:5.

1. Contentment in the soul.
2. Stability of mentality.
3. Composure marked by self assurance.

4. Being grace oriented and adjustment to life.
5. Good decision making from a position of strength. 6. Personal control of one's life.
7. Continuance in the plan of God. 8. A personal sense of visions and goals. 9. Capacity for divine blessing.

MAT 16:25 "For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.

JOH 3:15 that whoever believes may in Him have eternal life.

JOH 3:16   "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have
eternal life.

JOH 4:14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life. "

ROM 10:11 For the Scripture says, "Whoever believes in Him will not be disappointed."

ROM 10:13 for "Whoever will call upon the name of the Lord will be saved."

1JO 5:1 Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God; and whoever loves the Father loves the child born of Him.

REV 22:16 "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star."

REV 22:17   And the Spirit and the bride say, "Come." And let the one who hears say, "Come." And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.

1. Warning discipline, REV 3:14-19. 2. Intensive discipline as in Psa 38. 3. Dying discipline 1JO 5:16.

Psa 32 is the post-rebound Psalm of David when he finally responded to God's discipline and began to learn the easy way and it reveals to us the post-rebound blessing.

PSA 38:17  For I am ready to halt, and my unbearable pain is constantly with me.     PSA 38:18  For I confess [acknowledge, admit] my iniquity; I am full of anxiety because of my sin.

Maskil - Hiphil Imperfect tense of the verb sakal which means to understand what you have been motivated to learn - a poem or a song of instruction or teaching.

Esher = plural  it means happiness(es) to he whose transgression is forgiven,

Qal passive participle from the verb nasa which means to be forgiven, to have something lifted off of you and wiped out.

Transgression is the noun pesha which means transgressions or rebellion, it refers to willful acts of disobedience.

PSA 32:1, as a part of the blessings of rebound and recovery is how happy is he whose transgression or his willful acts of rebellion are  forgiven,

The apostle Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles of the Church-age, said the same thing in ROM 4:7-8.
Covered is the Qal passive participle of the Hebrew verb kasah which means to be covered in the sense of being paid for and removed.

As N.T. saints we look backward to the cross and have faith the Bible says happened on the cross truly happened.

In the O.T., the people of God looked forward to the cross and had faith that it would happen.

There can never be any blessing or happiness for any believer until he realizes that all of his sins have been forgiven and covered.

You may have to relearn some of those doctrines again depending on how long you have been away from God - another important reasons for repetition.

Awon = depravity, degeneration, and guilt contacted by sinning - also mean disaster or guilt or punishment for sin.
Remijah meaning deception, fraud, or negligence, which simply means that this individual stays out of interlocking systems of arrogance.

All day long he would sit down in the palace and throw tantrums,.....he was in psychopathic arrogance.

Going without sleep is devastating to physical health as well as mental health.

His vitality being drained away describes loss of nervous energy which is something that is good when it is legitimate and you have it.

Health prosperity is a prosperity which means nervous energy and nervous stability, though not necessarily freedom from pain.

2SA 11:2 tells us that David arose from his bed in the evening, he had been trying to sleep in the daytime.

Selah is the musical pause which denotes the faith rest drill!

Hiphil imperfect of jada = to make known, or to acknowledge, it only means to name and to cite, it doesn't mean to have any attitude toward the sin at all.
