A PURE eye

 


Luke 11:34

King James Version

34 The light of the body is the eye: 

therefore when thine eye is single, 

thy whole body also is full of light; 

but when thine eye is evil, 

thy body also is full of darkness.


This is how the HOLY SPIRIT taught me.

To present to you WORD study.

By taking it a word, or a phrase at a time.

This time, we look at "when thine eye is single".

What does that mean?

Let's turn to other Bible versions, for verification.


Luke 11:34

34 The eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is clear [spiritually perceptive, focused on God], your whole body also is full of light [benefiting from God’s precepts]. But when it is bad [spiritually blind], your body also is full of darkness [devoid of God’s word].


Luke 11:34

Amplified Bible, Classic Edition
