9 Then Jesus answered, "Are there not twelve hours in the day? If any man walks in the day, he does not stumble because he sees the by light of this world.
10 But if a man walks in the night, he stumbles because there is no light in him."1 [To walk in the night is to walk in darkness, still sinning, still stumbling; but if a man were full of the light of God, he would see by the light what to do and say, walking in the light of God with obedient faith. From the Word of the Lord within: "Walking in the light is to be guided through life by God; walking in darkness is making your own decisions as to what to do and say. All sin is darkness. The whole world lies in wickedness; the wickedness knows no shame. Darkness mocks the earth; darkness covers the earth. Light comes from faith in the voice."]
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know at what they stumble.
|Jeremiah 13:16 |
16 Give glory to the LORD your God, before he causes darkness, and before your feet stumble upon the dark mountains, and while you look for light, he turns it into the shadow of death, and makes it gross darkness.
