Number (and Forms)
Job 14:16 (c) This seems to indicate that the Lord watches every step that is taken by His child, and knows how many there are, and what is the number of each step that he takes. This indicates the very wonderful care of GOD for His child.
Psalm 90:12 (b) Evidently the Lord wants us to watch the details of our lives, for we only have a certain number of days to live, and we should know how many days are left in the ordinary course of life. If we do so, we will certainly endeavor to make every day count for eternity.
Matthew 10:30 (b) It does not say that GOD has counted our hairs, but rather that He has put a number on each hair. The lesson we learn from this is that each hair has its own number as a proof to us that the GOD of Heaven is interested in every detail of our lives. (See also Luke 12:7).
