Study Quiet

Now this is interesting. The word study does not appear but a few times in the KJV of the Bible.
1 Thessalonians 4:11 and you thought I was going to say 2 Timothy 2:15. And I am but I got to tell you this first.
1 Thessalonians 4:11 says study to be quiet. Which made me pause!
I mean study to be quiet?!  Does GOD mean we need to study to be quiet?  Now, that I think about it; that does make sense to me.
Study to be quiet.
Quiet does not come easy to we humans.  And even if the atmosphere in our present vicinity is quiet that does not mean it’s quiet inside our soul. We could be racing at the speed of light with anxiety and worries.  
Study to be quiet.
Applying ourselves to learning from GOD how to be quiet in Him.
(Psalm 46:10)
And I am thinking quiet before and to one another; you know, so we will know what to say and WHEN to say it!
O, Yes! I can see study to be quiet! A lesson for me to learn!

1 Thessalonians 4: 11 And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you; source

I wondered which other translations gave the word study in this verse. I discovered, not many, but the Young’s Literal does. That’s my go to translation for the closest to the original that I know how to get. In fact the YLT reads really close to KJV.
Now for the verse you expected:
2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.  source
 
Okay. On with this Tuesday!
