Rightly dividing (II Tim. 2:15)

The Greek word rendered "rightly dividing" has the literal sense of "making a straight cut" or, as The New English Bible well translates it, "driving a straight furrow," going on to add, "in your proclamation of the truth." Phillips translates the verse, "For yourself, concentrate on winning God's approval, on being a workman with nothing to be ashamed of, and who knows how to use the word of truth to the best advantage."

The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him (Ps. 25:14)
