Sin is the Punishment

Just a quick list as to where I get the idea that sin is the punishment in and of itself. A list of Hebrew words and their actual meanings that are translated as "punishment" in the King James Version. The number is the Strongs concordance reference number. So in your Bible it says punishment but in the Hebrew...well take a look...

H6485 Paqad-to attend to, to visit

H5352 Naquah-to be empty, be clear, be free

H4148 Muwcar-instruct

H5771 'Avon- guilt. {seen in the bible as the phrase "punishment of their iniquity" it is really just this one word in the Hebrew. See below}

H7725 Shuwb-turn back {seen in the KJV as the phrase "will not revoke its punishment" or in the NIV as the phrase "will not turn back my wrath". In the Hebrew just the one word.}

H2398 Chata{this is the root word for all three others} meaning miss the goal or mark, to wander from the way or path.

Words translated as INIQUITY{usually sinful or wicked in the NIV}in your Bible

H205 'Aven-trouble

H5771 'Avon-guilt{most often used}
from the root H5753 'Avah-bent, twisted, distorted, perverted, amiss

H5766 'Evel-injustice

In the Old Testament God either allowed the punishment of the sin in and of itself to take its course or He showed up got them to turn from their sin {repent}and prevented the punishment of their choice in sin. The choice was always up to the people. Choose Me & life{which is God's plan} or sin & desolation{which is always the plan of the enemy}. Sacrifice was blood to placate the Devil not God. Death, destruction and disease was and is never the plan of God.  God longs only to bind up and heal the wounds inflicted by the enemy.

"Where will you be stricken again, As you continue in your rebellion? The whole head is sick And the whole heart is faint. From the sole of the foot even to the head There is nothing sound in it, Only bruises, welts and raw wounds, Not pressed out or bandaged, Nor softened with oil. Your land is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire, Your fields—strangers are devouring them in your presence; It is desolation, as overthrown by strangers. "  Is. 1:5-7

"For the brokenness of the daughter of my people I am broken; I mourn, dismay has taken hold of me. Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why then has not the health of the daughter of my people been  restored?" Jer 8:21-22


  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something
    that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
