yet he knoweth not
7:9 yet he knoweth not. It is sad when leaders have lost their ability to lead, but don’t realize it. Like mighty Samson, who “wist not that the LORD was departed from him” (Judges 16:20), and like Jerusalem collaborating in Christ’s crucifixion because “thou knewest not the time of thy visitation” (Luke 19:44), and like the Laodicean church that “knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked” (Revelation 3:16-17). Professing Christians today need to guard urgently against the tragedy of arrogant ignorance.
