Prayer of Jabez

For

Jill Marceau

3/28/2002

JABEZ

3258 Ya˓bêts (4), sorrowful

3258.                    יַעְבֵּץ Ya˓bêts, yah-bates’; from an unused root prob. mean. to grieve; sorrowful; Jabets, the name of an Isr., and also of a place in Pal.:— Jabez.

1666     עָצַב (˓āṣab) I, grieve, displease, vex, wrest.

Derivatives

1666a     עֶצֶב (˓eṣeb) sorrow, labor.

1666b     עֹצֶב (˓ōṣeb) sorrow.

1666c     עָצֵב (˓āṣēb), עַצָּב (˓aṣṣāb) labor.

1666d     עַצֶּבֶת (˓aṣṣebet) sorrow, wound.

1666e     עִצָּבוֹן (˓iṣṣābôn) sorrow, toil.

1666f     מַעֲצֵבָה (ma˓ăṣēbâ) terror.

The root ˓āṣab relates to physical pain as well as to emotional sorrow (cf. ˓ăṣı̂b in Biblical Aramaic, “sad”). Words similar in Hebrew are ḥı̂l/ḥûl “to writhe,” ḥārâ “to be hot (with anger),” yāgâ Niphal “to grieve,” lā˒â “to become tired, weary,” kā˓as “to be irritated, angry,” mārar “to be bitter, despairing,” qûṭ “to feel a disgust,” qûṣ “to feel a disgust,” tāwâ II, “to trouble” (Ps 78:41), and the noun rōgez “turmoil.”

The verb ˓āṣab as a term of physical and mental discomfort is used in a variety of contexts. The Qal is found three times in the ot. The prophet-historian of I Kings comments wryly concerning Adonijah that his father had “never crossed him” (I Kgs 1:6, NAsb) at any time by inquiring into his activities, a shameful lack of parental interest and discipline. In another passage, Israel is depicted as a forsaken wife who is “grieved in spirit” (Isa 54:6). The third instance of the Qal is in I Chr 4:10 where the translation “hurt” serves as a pun on the name “Jabez” (see below).

The Niphal of ˓āṣab is found seven times; once of physical pain (Eccl 10:9, on the folly of a stoneworker being hurt by his stones). Usually mental and spiritual anguish are depicted by this form of the verb, as in the sorrowful and angry distress of Joseph’s brothers on recognizing him (Gen 45:5); Jonathan’s anguish concerning his father’s foul plots respecting David (I Sam 20:34; cf. 20:3); and Israel’s shocked grief at hearing the Torah recited and recognizing their deficiencies (Neh 8:10–11).

Twice the Piel is employed. Psalm 56:5 [H 6] speaks of David’s enemies wresting his words (NASB, “they distort my words”). In Isa 63:10 it is declared of Israel that “they rebelled and grieved his Holy Spirit” (cf. Eph 4:30 where lupeō is used in a similar manner). The Hiphil of the Hebrew verb is found only in Ps 78:40, parallel to terms for rebellion, tempting, and provocation. One of the two uses of the Hithpael describes the reaction of the brothers of Dinah at her being raped (RSV, “the men were indignant,” Gen 34:7). The other is the chillingly familiar prologue to the deluge, the grief in the heart of Yahweh concerning the wickedness of man and his continually evil thought patterns (Gen 6:6).

עֹצֶב (˓ōṣeb). Sorrow, wicked. (ASV, RSV similar, but add “pain.”). Rendered “wicked” in Ps 139:24, “and see if there be any wicked way in me.”

עָצֵב (˓āṣēb), עַצָּב (˓aṣṣāb). Labor (so ASV; RSV and NASB, “worker”). Only found in Isa 58:3, “and drive hard all your workers” (NASB).

מַעֲצֵבָה (ma˓ăṣēbâ). Terror. (Literally, “a place of pain”; RSV renders “torment.”) Used only in Isa 50:11.

The several derivatives listed above depict many types of pain. In I Chr 4:9–10 there is a pun complex on the name Jabez respecting the pain (˓ōṣeb) his mother suffered in childbirth, and his own desire not to be hurt (˓āṣab, Qal). His name, ya˓beṣ, has the same root letters as ˓ṣb, but with metathesis (see J. M. Myers, I Chronicles, AB p. 28).

Yet another example of paronomasia is noted by Cassuto in the pericope of the curse on the woman and the man in Gen 3. Pain in childbirth (˓issābôn and ˓eṣeb) are decreed for the woman (Gen 3:16), and pain in manual labor (˓iṣṣābôn) is decreed for the man (Gen 3:17). Both came as the consequence of the sin respecting the fruit of the forbidden tree. Noting that “tree” (˓ēṣ) has the same first two radicals as pain (˓ṣb), Cassuto writes, “It was with respect to ˓ēṣ that the man and the woman sinned, and it was with ˓eṣebh (pain) and ˓iṣṣābhōn (toil, suffering) that they were punished” (Genesis, I, p. 165).

1 Chronicles 4:9-10

9 Jabez was more honorable than his brothers. His mother had named him Jabez, s saying, “I gave birth to him in pain.” 10 Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.

D. Edmond Hiebert. Working With God Through Intercessory Prayer. rev ed., Greenville, SC: Bob Jones University, 1991. 129 pp. $9.95 (paper). Reviewed by James E. Rosscup, Professor of Bible Exposition.

Hiebert left a legacy of evangelical usefulness when he passed more fully into the presence of God at his death in 1995. Since 1955 he had been Professor of New Testament at the Mennonite Brethren Biblical Seminary, Fresno, California. Several commentaries had come from him (Mark, Thessalonian Epistles, Pastorals, James, First Peter, Second Peter and Jude). This book on prayer originally appeared in 1987. Many evangelicals find his works well researched with articulate exposition.

Here are ten well-organized and expository chapters, some of which deal with working by prayer, the power of prayer, empowerment through intercession, and learning to pray from Daniel. It is extraordinary to find eight pages on “The Prayer of Jabez” dealing with two verses (1 Chr 4:9–10). The verses chronicle the effectiveness of specific prayer. More than ten pages discuss “Epaphras, Man of Prayer.” Scripture and subject indexes help locate comments. Hiebert’s book shows judicious use of works on individual texts, commentaries, and topical books (cf. “Bibliography,” 115–20). He maturely pulls key facets of effective prayer into the discussion. The book can greatly help one cultivate a regular vigil of prayer under the tutelage of God’s Word.

Hiebert’s main focus is on the intercessory emphasis in prayer. He sees prayer in general as “God’s gracious arrangement whereby His saints are privileged to work together with Him in furthering His sovereign purpose.” He adds, “It is the most noble and most essential ministry God gives to His children—but is the most neglected” (Preface).

Chapters 2–4 expound key NT texts on intercession. Chapters 5–7 discuss three men of prayer. Many texts receive either brief or lengthy exposition: e.g., Exod 17:8–16; 1 Chr 4:9–10; Isa 59:15–16; Ezek 22:30–31; Dan 9:3–4; Matt 9:37–38; Luke 11:9–13; John 14:12–13; Acts 6:4; 12:5, 17; Eph 6:18–19; Col 4:3–4; 2 Thess 3:1–2; 1 Tim 2:1–4. A number of others also receive mention. Hiebert expounds passages phrase by phrase.

Frequent illustrations and poems on prayer spice the discussions. For example, the evangelism of R. A. Torrey in various countries was the result of long Saturday night prayer surges (11).

The book specializes in the one aspect of prayer, intercession, but incorporates many details in other areas. A Christian can profit from what is emphasized, but a caution is healthy. To avoid being spiritually unbalanced in prayer and to be properly balanced, one needs to cultivate a blend and balance in all aspects of prayer. Aggressiveness is imperative in more than just intercession, or any other single aspect of prayer (praise, thanks, confession, petition for one’s own needs, etc.). Scripture shows the need to saturate prayer with a correlation of all these elements, and even other aspects such as affirmation of truth (“Lord, I love you”; or “Lord, I know you love me”). A daily interweaving and growing in all areas enhances a prayer life in accord with the will of God as reflected in the Word of God.

The intercessory part of prayer in this book is well-developed. The work can be a significant help to teachers, pastors, and anyone in Christian service.

Tremper Longman, III, and Daniel G. Reid. God Is a Warrior. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1995. $16.99 (paper). 224 pp. Reviewed by David C. Deuel, Associate Professor of Old Testament.

The first in the series, “Studies in Old Testament Biblical Theology,” the present work purposes to lay bare an outline of the biblical-theological development of the divine warrior theme “and in this way provide a grid for the reader to understand other passages and texts” (27).

The Divine Warrior theme or motif as a window to God’s person and works offers great promise to evangelical preachers and teachers. …The Bible is about Yahweh. It is His self-revelation. The Bible, however, is not about Yahweh in the abstract; it is about God in relation to mankind. Furthermore, this relationship is not so much described as it is narrated. There is a historical dimension to biblical revelation. Thus a proper biblical theology must take into account the subject matter of the Bible, the divine-human relationship, and the fact that the Bible’s message is told through time (15).[1]

The present study takes as its impetus the biblical metaphor or picture of God as the Divine Warrior (cf. Exod 15:3, “The LORD is a warrior”). It is recognized that God’s relationship with His people is set forth in Scripture through many such metaphors each emphasizing a different aspect of this relationship. “No one metaphor is capable of capturing the richness of God’s nature or the wonder of his relationship with his creatures” (15).

The authors choose a synthetic approach over against a study of individual passages where the metaphor occurs. A truly biblical-theological approach would be a large and tedious project. In this the authors are justified. Once acknowledged, the book may be appreciated for its true contribution.

Because the divine warrior theme is more difficult to see in the gospels a more textual method is employed. Pauline literature (as opposed to that of Hebrews or Peter) draws out the future of the theme and finally the book of Revelation “as an outstanding example of the motif” (18) receives a thematic treatment.

Even though the present study gives needful consideration to the historical institution of holy war in ancient Israel, its primary focus is upon the image or picture as it is employed by biblical writers. In addition, the authors treat the biblical text “as a single writing that presents an internally consistent message, including an internally consistent, yet unfolding picture of God as warrior” (26).

A second and related methodological issue impinges on the first assumption. An earlier writer (G. von Rad, Holy War in Ancient Israel 52) argued that holy wars (the historical realities) lacked consistency in structure. To this the authors respond that it is the nature of biblical narrative rather than actual “lack of coherence in holy war theory or practice” (33). This leads them to structure the study under the sequential format:

[2]

1. Before the War

(a) Seeking God’s will

(b) Spiritual Preparation

(c) Ritual Cleanness in the War Camp

2. During the War

(a) Numbers and Weapons Technology

(b) The March[3]

c) The Ark

(d) The Combatants

3. After the Battle

(a) Praise

(b) Plunder (Herem Warfare).

This pattern, argue the authors, is detectable from Genesis through Revelation.

The book is stimulating reading. As the first in this series, it leaves this reader anticipating more to come. The book is recommended to those committed to the challenge of biblical theology as a basis for systematic theology.
