Why do I study the bible a few hours a day for over 40 years?? I have learned the secrets of bible study that keep it so exciting can't wait to sit again. It is extremely important to have th teacher with you---the Holy Spirit. If God wrote the whole bible to man through the pen hand of man--and he did---- we must realize that was not the man saying anything. He was only writing what he was told. The way deep wisdom of God is in every word. Man had to hear but translation is very difficult. Paul for example made no mistakes, just translaters who really did get the idea down skipping a few word mistakes. So I don't bore you, I said all above to let you know that everything you read is from God's side looking down at man and women and children. You need to know this because it is all from God's perspective not man's. It will take God's help to understand difficult things and that can be prayerful. Actually the more difficult to understand the more wonderful is what is being said. To show you what hang in there means, I understand practically all of it. One day I prayed for a Hebrew friend to be sent my way. It was lke the next day God said to me you have it. He was saying Jesus was a Jew and he is your friend. Then all of a sudden he gave me a mind transformation so that when I read O.T. I understand a lot of what the symbolism means. It came supernaturally. Now he comes and visits me and tells me mysteries. One of them being one of the greatest mysteries of all time. It is about 7-8 hours long. Even the whole world would come to hear it because it includes things man has been seeking for , for ages. it is so awesome you have to be sitting in your seat lest you fall. I am the only person in the world who knows it---it cannot be found unless God tells it to you. The point is God shows things to all lovers of his word.
