7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for you reap whatever you sow.


Select a resource above

7. God is not mocked—The Greek verb is, literally, to sneer with the nostrils drawn up in contempt. God does not suffer Himself to be imposed on by empty words: He will judge according to works, which are seeds sown for eternity of either joy or woe. Excuses for illiberality in God's cause (Ga 6:6) seem valid before men, but are not so before God (Ps 50:21).

soweth—especially of his resources (2Co 9:6).

thatGreek, "this"; this and nothing else.

reap—at the harvest, the end of the world (Mt 13:39).
