Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

supports of the ungodly...

supports of the ungodly

A spider's web, once damaged,
rapidly goes to pieces.
It cannot be patched up.
To 'lean upon it' is to put
its structure to a test
which it is unable to bear.
It cannot 'stand' or 'endure.'
The case is the same with
all the supports of the ungodly.”

- Pulpit Commentary
(Job 8:15)

What they trust in is fragile;
what they rely on is a spider’s web.
They lean on the web, but it gives way;
they cling to it, but it does not hold.”

- Job 8:14,15 NIV
