Day 167


Knows Us Well

"You have never heard; you have never known; For a long time your ears have not been open. For I knew that you were very treacherous, and were known as a rebel from birth."
Isaiah 48:8 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

What this verse means in the Hebrew text is that Yahweh literally knows us... even before we are born... while in the womb.

Where the text refers to the time, "Your ears have not been open" literally means before the ears are opened in the womb of the mother. This was the significance of the Feast of Trumpets on the first day of the seventh month... for it is on that day the ears of the developing child are opened in the womb. Yahweh says that even before your ears are opened in the womb... I knew you.

Our translations should also end the verse by stating that the one in question was known as a rebel "from before birth." No one else knows us like this.

This is in The Name.
