6 “So Jotham became mighty, because he ordered his ways before the Lord his God.”
This translation kind of dictates to me that he became mighty be because he passed his ideas by God first…like he was ordering things to see if it was available for him…. not just walking into the kitchen and helping himself.
6 “So Jotham became mighty, because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God.”
this translation says to me that he didn’t do anything without checking with God first he was always prepared with the Lord in mind
my fav is the NLT”6 King Jotham became powerful because he was careful to live in obedience to the Lord his God
this one speaks directly to me most of all it’s my favourite because I like the word obedience… the first two translations also speak to me, it’s just a personal preference…to be obedient IS to run things by God first and to be obedient IS to check with him before making a move
