|Deuteronomy 33:2-4 |
2 And he said, "The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir to them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints; from his right hand went a fiery law for them.
3 Surely he loves the people; all your holy ones are in your power. And they sit at your feet, each receiving your words.1 [From the Word of the Lord within: "To sit in humble silence, waiting on the Lord, is to bear the cross — instead of thinking how you might please others. Those who sit at the feet of Christ to hear His word — their ground is to wait. In humble silence we sit and wait. When you sit and wait, hope for purity, hope for change. Sit with me, and I will make you clean. Sit with me, and I will make you whole. Sit with me, and I will reveal all. In the course of your day, sit, sit, sit."]
4 Moses commanded us a law, even the inheritance of the congregation of Jacob.
1 Surely he loves the people; all your holy ones are in your power. And they sit at your feet, each receiving your words. All of God's saints are in his power. The holy ones are God's saints, having been translated into the kingdom of God to share the inheritance in the light. Notice, they sit at the feet of Jesus, receiving his words; the words I speak to you are spirit and are life. John 6:63. To sit at Jesus' feet and listen to his word in the one thing needed by any who aspire to become a saint:
Now it came to pass as they went, that he entered into a certain village, and a woman named Martha received him into her house.
And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard his word.
Now Martha was distracted with much serving, and came to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her that she should help me."
But Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things.
There is only one thing needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her. Luke 10:38-42.
