New King James Version
And He will destroy on this mountain The surface of the covering cast over all people, And the veil that is spread over all nations.
New International Version (NIV)
7 On this mountain he will destroy
the shroud that enfolds all peoples,
the sheet that covers all nations;
English Standard Version (ESV)
17"And you, son of man,(A) set your face against(B) the daughters of your people,(C) who prophesy out of their own minds. Prophesy against them 18and say, Thus says the Lord GOD: Woe to the women(D) who sew magic bands upon all wrists, and(E) make veils for the heads of persons of every stature, in(F) the hunt for souls! Will you hunt down souls belonging to my people and keep your own souls alive? 19You have profaned me among my people(G) for handfuls of barley(H)and for pieces of bread, putting to death souls who should not die and keeping alive souls who should not live, by your lying to my people, who listen to lies.
A veil is an article of clothing, worn almost exclusively by women, that is intended to cover some part of the head or face.
One view is that as a religious item, it is intended to show honor to an object or space.
Shroud usually refers to an item, such as a cloth, that covers or protects some other object.
A length of cloth or an enveloping garment in which a dead person is wrapped for burial
- he was buried in a linen shroud
A thing that envelops or obscures something
- a shroud of mist
- they operate behind a shroud of secrecy
New King James Version (NKJV)
15 But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. 16 Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. 17 Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
Many people’s destinies and lives have been shrouded and covered up in veils. Shrouding suggests the burial cloth used to wrap up dead bodies in the olden days.
Something that is shrouded or veiled is covered, wrapped, hidden, mantle, screened away from view. From its glory.
Even the most shining glory can be shrouded or veiled. You have an eclipse when the moon as small as it is covers the rays of the giant sun.
Many women’s glories have been veiled. Because of that, you will see a beautiful successful woman with every other thing working for her, but never having been noticed for once by an admirer.
You will see a woman with absolutely no physical defect, but she is practically unable to give birth to children.
Even when she does carry a baby, the baby is stillborn. Because her glory as a mother has been shrouded as if it were dead spiritually.
Tonight, we will deal with this serious issue of shrouded and veiled destinies.
Why is it that a medical doctor of many years even with a postgraduate degree in surgery cannot be employed in anything more than a salesperson at subway or mcdonald’s.
Why is it that a man with 2 doctorate degrees cannot hold even a simple teaching job in an elementary school?
The answer is found in the mystery of the veil. Look, a veil can be so strong, that the enemy decided to bastardize the work of God.
In Exodus 26 we are told of the tabernacle and its relation with the veil. God took time to give instructions on how to set everything up. The veil was in the tabernacle was exceedingly costly; it was made of the same materials with the inner covering, blue, purple, scarlet, fine twined linen, embroidered with cherubim. It served to divide the tabernacle into two parts: one, the outermost, called the holy place; the other, or innermost, called the holy of holies, or the most holy place. In this was deposited the ark of the covenant, and the other things that were laid up by way of memorial. Into this the high priest alone was permitted to enter, and that only once in the year, on the great day of atonement. It was in this inner place that Jehovah manifested himself between the cherubim. The Jews say that this veil was four fingers' breadth in thickness, in order to prevent any person from seeing through it; but for this, as Calmet observes, there was no necessity, as there was no window or place for light in the tabernacle, and consequently the most simple veil would have been sufficient to obstruct the discovery of any thing behind it, which could only be discerned by the light that came in at the door, or by that afforded by the golden candlestick which stood on the outside of this veil.
