Psalm 7:14 (a) The wicked man has a tremendous urge in his soul to do wrong, and gets no relief until he executes his evil designs.

Psalm 48:6 (a) The sons of Korah are describing the sudden out. pouring of GOD's wrath on the nations, so that they are filled with fear and can find no relief. (See Jeremiah 6:24; Jeremiah 13:21; Jeremiah 22:23; Micah 4:9).

Ecclesiastes 1:13 (a) Solomon seems to indicate that all kinds of labor and investigation are a burden to men. They never seem to get the job done, and therefore never rest. He uses this expression all through this book of Ecclesiastes.

Isaiah 53:11 (a) CHRIST's terrible sufferings and sorrows are compared to the pains of a woman in childbirth.

Isaiah 54:1 (a) There is a comparison here between the Law and Grace, between Israel and the Church, between the bondage of the Old Testament, and the freedom of the New. Hagar gave birth to a child through the scheme and plan of Abraham. In contrast with this, Isaac was the child of Sarah by promise and by miracle. So it is with the Old Testament plan. Men sought by many ways (given by GOD). to better themselves and increase their usefulness They failed and were set aside. Then CHRIST JESUS came to bring betterment, goodness, and the salvation of the soul by the sacrifice and the resurrection of Himself. Millions have been set free by the Saviour, far in excess of that which came from Israel.

Isaiah 66:7 (b) CHRIST JESUS came to Israel, but they were not ready for Him, and did not want Him. The nation of Israel was formed in a day, but they did not want their King, they were not ready for their Messiah.

Romans 8:22 (a) All of nature is indeed suffering with the things that exist on the earth. Plant life and animal life suffer the depredations of enemies, and are finally overcome by death. All human beings have sorrow, the wealthy as well as the poor. All minerals and metals suffer with rust and decay. Nothing improves with age. Sorrow abounds in every realm.

Galatians 4:19 (a) Paul was deeply exercised in his soul about the spiritual welfare of the Galatians. They had become so occupied with law keeping, that they had forgotten the precious presence of the Lord JESUS CHRIST. Paul wanted them to make CHRIST JESUS Lord of all, and preeminent in their thinking and their worship. His soul was deeply exercised about this.

1 Thessalonians 2:9 (a) Paul was a marvelous example of one who accompanied his faith by his works. He worked with his hands day and night to pay all of his own bills, and also the expenses of the nine men who were with him. He demanded no salary, and took no offerings from these people. It was not an easy task. It was most burdensome and difficult, as he indicates by using the word travail.
