Naked (and Forms)
Genesis 3:7 (c) We may learn from this figure that nothing is hidden from GOD. All things are open to His eyes, and nothing can be covered up. There was no hypocrisy here, for they knew all about each other, and GOD knew all about them.
Genesis 42:9 (a) Joseph accused his brethren of being spies who came to see the military installations, the defense measures, and the riches of the land, with a view to invading and conquering Egypt.
Exodus 20:26 (a) In climbing steps, any physical disability or defects could be seen by observers. GOD does not require public demonstrations of the faults and failures of those who come to worship Him.
1 Samuel 20:30 (b) Saul is accusing Jonathan of insulting his mother, and denying his birthright privileges by his loyalty to David. Jonathan was the heir to the throne and therefore would inherit the glory, the power and the wealth of his father if he remained true to his father.
Job 1:21 (c) This is one way of saying that he came into the world owning nothing, and possessing nothing. He would leave the world with nothing. (See Ecclesiastes 5:15).
Job 26:6 (a) We have not seen hell, but GOD has seen it, for He made it; therefore, everything about hell is clearly seen and understood by the Lord.
Isaiah 47:3 (b) The prophet is telling the Babylonians that they will lose all their wealth, their ornaments and that their defense will be taken from them, and they will be left helpless.
Lamentations 1:8 (b) The nations have seen Jerusalem punished by GOD, and stripped of her power, beauty and place of honor.
Lamentations 4:21 (a) The Edomites will give themselves over to sin and wickedness without pretense or shame.
Ezekiel 16:8 (a) This word occurs in several places in connection with Israel, and of other nations. It describes a state of exposure of all the nation with no deception, no pretense, no covering up of any sin or evil. It represents also the loss of all assets, power, strength and defense. (See Ezekiel 16:36; Ezekiel 23:10; Nahum 3:5; Habakkuk 2:15).
Amos 2:16 (a) The judgment of GOD on Israel will be so severe that none will have any goods or possessions left. Everything will be lost. This has been literally fulfilled.
