Biblical Contradiction: Does God Get Weary?

By
Bassam Zawadi

 

 

 

In the following verse it says that God cannot get weary...

Isaiah 40:28

28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary (yaga), and his understanding no one can fathom.

 

The Hebrew word for weary here is yaga, which means...

1) to toil, labour, grow weary, be weary

a) (Qal)

1) to toil, labour

2) to grow weary, be weary

b) (Piel) to weary, make weary, cause to go toilsomely

c) (Hiphil) to make to toil, make weary, cause to be weary

However, this verse mentions God getting weary...

Isaiah 43:24

You have not bought any fragrant calamus for me, or lavished on me the fat of your sacrifices. But you have burdened me with your sins and wearied (yaga) me with your offenses.

 

Bible commentator John Gill says...

but thou hast made me to serve with thy sins, thou hast wearied me with thine iniquities; they were so many, and so aggravated, that he could not bear with them any longer, his patience was worn out; they were an uneasiness to him, as it were a burden upon him, and therefore would ease himself, as he sometimes does, by avenging himself, Isaiah 1:24, but here by pardoning them, as in the following verse.... (John Gill's Exposition of the Bible, Source)

 

So could God get weary or not? Obviously you cannot say yes, because what kind of a God gets tired? If no, then explain Isaiah 43:24 for me. 

Someone might desperately argue that in Isaiah 40 God meant that he does not get weary in the physical sense but Isaiah 43 shows that he got wearied in an emotional sense since He lost his patience. First of all, God is supposed to be patient...

2 Peter 3:9

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

 

Secondly, Isaiah 40 makes it clear that God does not get yaga but Isaiah 43 shows that God did get yaga. End of story.

Did Isaiah 53 really prophesies about the crucifixion of Jesus? It supports Islam's claims about Jesus peace be upon him never died on the cross.  I also addressed John 19:36-37 from the Bible and proved that Jesus never got crucified, since GOD Almighty promised that he will protect Jesus' body and not let even a single bone be broken.     My question to all Christians is: How in the world is it possible for the feet to get nailed on the cross without any penetration to the bones by the nails, hence breaking part of the feet's bones?! I also added refutations to Exodus 12:46, Numbers 9:12, Zechariah 12:10 and Psalm 34:20, which supposedly prove the Christians' belief about Jesus crucifixion.  I proved that this dogma has no truth what so ever and exposed the wrong Trinitarian English translation of Zechariah 12:10.
