Rest your whole weight on God

a. Ill: There once was a man, named John Paton, who was translating the Bible for a South Seas island tribe. John Paton discovered that the natives had no word for trust or faith. One day a native who had been working hard came into the missionary’s house, flopped himself into a large comfortable chair and said, "It’s good to rest my whole weight on this chair."

This became a revelation to Paton. "That’s it," he said. "I’ll translate faith as ’resting one’s whole weight on God.’"
