|2 Timothy 2:15
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The Greek word for "rightly dividing" is "orthotomounta" which means a perfectly right or straight cutting. To "rightly divide" God's Word we must STUDY God's Word. We cannot "rightly divide" the Word by studying commentaries or what people say about the Word. We must study the Word itself if we are going to stand approved of God.
