lâ'âh - weary ...

How many times have you been told in 'church' to do this and do that so that this or that might fall in place ... in order that you be obedient - law-talk "if this, then that" "if not, then something else"...

Computer programmers know this well as the syntax (computer language-code - law) that makes a program to respond in a fixed way. Legislation drafters know this mechanism that forces people to act in a certain prescribed way ...

But mankind was not created to act like robots, instead with free choice, being able to choose either for or against God and His finished work of the cross.

When God speaks to the prophet Jeremiah He explains exactly what the problem is, even prophesying what the Pharisees (law-code-people) would do to Jesus.

Jer 12:5 -6 states: "If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied [lâ'âh] thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied [lâ'âh] thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?

For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee."

... and  verse 10: "Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard, they have trodden my portion under foot, they have made my pleasant portion a desolate wilderness."

lâ'âh - is to weary someone, to be weary, be impatient, be offended, to be weary, make weary, exhaust.

You weary them. You exhaust them!


By placing a burden on them. The burden of the law!

What did Jesus say about these law-men?

"And he said, Woe unto you also, ye lawyers! for ye lade men with burdens grievous to be borne, and ye yourselves touch not the burdens with one of your fingers." Luk 11:46

You are His pleasant portion, His precious vineyard. 

Do not allow yourself to be trodden under foot by those who preach the desolation of the law!
