Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Okay, you ready, check this, the Hebrew word for vision here is "chazown", which means like a divine revelation. Perhaps kind of like for your life, like find out what God's revelation/ dream/ vision is for your life. Once you got that you can battle with the darkness-es that you face in your life and overcome them, you will not perish as the next part of the vs. says. Now the Hebrew word here for perish, is "para'" which means kind of like, going astray/ neglecting. So as you understand the meaning behind the Hebrew words, the vs. can really start to make sense. Focus on what God has planted in your heart - the great future he has for you - and as you do that you will not falter, and get side tracked with what is important... and isn't anything that is not God's will for our lives unimportant????
