"For Thy salvation I wait, O Lord."

In recent studies, we've commented on pearls of wisdom in little one-line verses. Ages and spaces of time set in the space of one comma, the significance of jots and tittles in regards to Hebrew meanings. And here, sandwiched in between this descriptive of Jacob's sons, we find verse 18. So patient and good is the Lord, He reminds us of no matter who or no matter what, our hope should be in Him. Amidst all the business or concerns of life, all that really matters is our focus on Him. Today life is filled with distraction and worry, but wait on Him you child of God, for He never fails.
