Sweat or "zeah" in the the Hebrew language meaning: "perspiration" meaning that all work on this earth are not easy, you will somehow sweat before you accomplish your goals in life. In this life, we have the LORD JESUS residing in us, that's why we are strengthen, and unlike the unbelievers, we are working to please the LORD GOD in every way, and we are quickly promoted compared to unbelievers because we wait upon Him.
