Their life will be like a well-watered garden, and never again will they languish.…

Matthew 22:29
Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.









(11) For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob . . .--Of the two verbs "redeem" and "ransom" here used, the first expresses the act of setting free, the other that of acting as the goel, or nearest kinsman, who was not only the liberator, but the avenger of those to whom he stood in that relation. (Comp. Numbers 35:19; Deuteronomy 19:6; 2Samuel 14:11; Isaiah 59:20; Psalm 19:14.) The idea of a "ransom," however--i.e., of a price paid for freedom--does not lie in the Hebrew word.
