When you read the same scripture over and over again it can begin to be taken for granted. In the search for a fresh voice I start reading at a different part of the chapter each month. Since it is toward the middle of the year I began in this verse today. It immediately jumped out at me in light of what I see going on in the culture around me.
We as Christians need to be about the “execution” (6213a) of “justice” (4941). The verb here is an incredibly common word in Hebrew which simply means “to do”. That is how the KJV translates it here but the NASB in the pursuit of new sales or creativity translates it “execution” in the 1977 version and “exercise” in the update. Either way it is a command for us as believers. What I found interesting is another place it is used that I go to on a regular basis.
(Mic 6:8 KJV) He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do (6213a) justly (4941), and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?So? Justice is a big concern for Christians but make sure it is the justice of the Bible, not the social justice of our current political manipulators. Do it.
