(Proverbs 8:2 KJV) She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
Do the Irish really say, “Top of the morning to you”? Maybe it is only in the movies. The word “top” (7218) is transliterated [rosh]. You may be familiar with it in Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. It is sometimes called the Feast of Trumpets. Literally Rosh Hashanah means “head of the year.” “Top” refers to beginnings. It refers to the head, which is its most common translation.
Where is your head today? Where does it all “meet” (NASB) (1007a) for you? What is dominating your thoughts and dreams? What determines your plans and reactions? Is it wisdom or the latest theme you have picked up on the internet? You have a lot to say about what dominates your thinking. You choose the music you listen to. You chose what comes over your speakers in the car. You choose the places you spend your leisure.
So? If you are not on top of things it could be that life has dumped on you. It could also be because you are making decisions that put the world in your head instead of the word. Think about it. Be honest. No one is listening but you, and, of course, God. You can only fool yourself.
