CAREFULNESS . Careful and carefulness do not express approbation in the English of the Bible, as they do now. To be careful is to be too anxious, to worry. ‘Be careful for nothing,’ says St. Paul ( Philippians 4:6 ), and ‘I would have you without carefulness’ ( 1 Corinthians 7:32 ). Latimer says: ‘Consider the remedy against carefulness, which is to trust in God.’ Again, to be careless is not blameworthy, meaning simply to be without apprehension, to feel safe, as Judges 18:7 ‘they dwelt careless, after the manner of the Zidonians, quiet and secure.’
