Steps [1]

Exodus 20:26 (c) This may be taken as a type of human effort and human plans in making a sacrifice to GOD for sins. GOD's altar was to be down where everybody could reach it. It was to be made simple so that anyone might take advantage of it. If there were steps to the altar, the lame, the maimed, the sick, and the infirm would reveal their inability as they sought to reach it. This would hinder their getting to it. GOD wanted His altar on a level with the people where all could take advantage of the sacrifice easily.

2 Samuel 22:37 (b) David is describing the fact that he knew GOD so well, and knew the ways of GOD so perfectly that he was established in the faith, and would not wander from the paths of GOD. (See Psalm 18:36).

Job 14:16 (c) In this way Job describes the care with which GOD watched over His servant. He knew how many steps Job took, and why he took them. (See also Job 31:4, Job 31:37).

Job 29:6 (b) In this way Job is telling us that he lived in luxury. He walked as a king, and lacked nothing. He was one of the richest men of the east.

Psalm 37:23 (a) GOD does direct the manner of life of His child and tells him where to walk, and how to walk.

Psalm 37:31 (b) By this is indicated that the walk of the child of GOD will be permanently for good, his life will be according to the will of GOD.

Proverbs 5:5 (b) The path of the harlot is always downward, inspired by sinfulness, and results in eternal loss.

Romans 4:12 (b) The believers in this day follow in the path of Abraham who lived by faith, walked with GOD, and believed GOD. These things characterize the godly and believing man in this dispensation.

1 Peter 2:21 (a) The believer does follow the path of the Saviour. He walks with Him and talks with Him, and his desire is to be like his Lord.
