Several years ago a pastor told me that the addition of ‘eth’ to a verb , indicated a continuous on- going action. ie. John 3:16- ‘believeth’, a continuous, on-going belief (actually faith), and 1 John 1 : 7, “as we walketh in the light”- When you look at the King James Version this adds a great deal of clarity.
No longer do I make fun of the use of ‘eth’. In fact, I have come to appreciate the importance of continuing in the faith. James 1: 7,8 says,
A double-minded man will receive nothing from the Lord since he is unstable in all his ways.
Many times the devil can see a break through coming and will try to increase the pressure to get you to give up just before your answer comes. So continue to persevere – keep on ‘eth-ing’. Your answer is coming.
