... line upon line ... Isaiah 28:10
Nehemiah 3:5 And next unto them the Tekoites repaired; but their nobles put not their necks to the work of their Lord. …
The word ‘noble’ means famous, gallant, glorious, goodly, lordly, mighty, noble, principal, worthy. It should be a term used to describe the honour and integrity of another, but these nobles were not prepared to do the work. They wanted to rule, to have the preeminence, to be seen as important, but they were not actually useful to the task at hand.
There are many church members these days that will watch others work, but not extend a hand to actually help out. They want to be seen as important, they want their say on important matters, they censure others that they disapprove of, they criticize the hard work of others, they have clean hands because of their lack of service.
These ‘noble’ Tekoites sure did not deserve the honour of being titled ‘noble’. It is interesting that Scripture proclaims in one place that the church folk of Berea were more noble than others because of their searching of the Word of God (Acts 17:11), and in another place states that ‘not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called’.
Are you noble simply because you demand the title to be applied to you, or does the word ‘noble’ apply to you because you are like the Bereans? And, incidentally, the word ‘noble’ is from the Greek word eugenes, which is where we get our English word ‘eugenics from’.
And what does eugenics mean? It means well born. A Biblically noble person, like the Bereans, is noble because he is born again, not because he goes around demanding it. Much to think upon, yes?
