Young Christians AN ENCOURAGING THOUGHT_01

The Righteous and the Wicked

Proverbs 10:3 Updated American Standard Version (UASV)
Jehovah does not let the soul of the righteous go hungry,
    but he thrusts away the craving of the wicked.

Jehovah does not let the soul of the righteous go hungry: The book of Proverbs and the rest of the bible really has a general truth that those who have a righteous standing before God usually tend to be secure and prosperous. Naturally, if you are living by the Bible principles to the best of your ability, the general principle that good things happen to good people (righteous) will be relatively true, not absolute. It will be truer for you than the unbeliever that does not live by the Word of God. However, God’s people also know that there are unexpected events that befall us all, as these are outside of our control. (Eccles. 9:11) The soul of the righteous includes more than your physical welfare but rather applies to your entire person and your needs, which would also include spiritual food. Go hungry refers to a Hebrew word (raeb) that has the sense of to cause to be hungry, to cause to be without food, to be famished, which can range from mild hunger to long periods of hunger, to extreme starving depending on the context. The context here is that God will not allow you to endure such hunger be it physically or spiritually. Again, this is not an absolute but rather, generally speaking, if you do (A) you will get (B).

BIBLE DIFFICULTIES

but he thrusts away the craving of the wicked: The Hebrew word rendered thrust away (hadaph) means to hinder, prevent the evil or selfish efforts, plans or desires, the cravings (Heb. havvah) of the wicked. In other words, God does not, generally speaking, allow righteous people to starve, nor does he allow the wicked to get what their evil hearts desire or crave. While the Hebrew word for righteous (tsaddiq) is in the singular in the first line and the Hebrew term for wicked (rasha) is in the plural in the second line, there is no contrast as to the number.

The righteous serving God does not have to wait until the second coming of Christ to experience the blessing of God. They are freely available to all who truly live by God’s Word. When we think of the spiritual food that is available to the churchgoer today, it truly is a treasure like no other generation before. Only those doing the will of the Father (Matt. 7:21-23; 2 John 2:15-17) are to receive these blessings. Therefore, we now understand why Paul specifically used the emphasize Greek word for accurate knowledge (epignosis) 21 times in his letters. Accurate knowledge of the Word of God is pleasurable to our soul, which is something the wicked does not have.
