Figurative: Except in Job 42:10 the figurative use of the idea is confined to the New Testament, where reference is made to the triumphal reign of the Lord Jesus ( Luke 4:18; Ephesians 4:8 ), or, on the other hand, to the power of the devil (2 Timothy 2:26 ), or of false teachers (2 Timothy 3:6 ); compare also Romans 7:23; 2 Corinthians 10:5 .
