There it is, the word forsake. It sounds painful. It produces a mid-air collision with a courtroom gavel that says, “Divorced,” and an emergency room doctor that says, “Dead.” The word means, “to let one down, to desert, abandon, leave in a lurch, leave one helpless.” Kenneth Wuest helps us with this word when he includes the idea, “being that of deserting someone in a set of circumstances that are against him.”(3)
