Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
We have studied on this passage back in March of this year. I believe we got some understanding of what it means to “trust in the Lord…; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” We learned that “Lean not” שָׁעַן šâ‘an; means to support oneself. The word understanding is בִּינָה ḇiynâ; which means to have knowledge, to understand, have wisdom of. “Lean not” is where many of us have trouble. We as people want to do things we know, do the responsible thing, do the things that make sense to us, do things we know will bring us the desired result.
