  The DEFINED King James Bible: Definitions For Change

 "Snare of the Devil" is a Noose-like Trap For Small Game?

The word, "snare," in the context of "snare of the devil," appears twice in the King James Bible:

Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil. 1 Tim. 3:7

And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will. 2 Tim. 2:26

D. A. Waite, Jr. again provides a wrong definition in a verse that pertains to a warning. The DEFINED King James Bible says that "snare," in the context of "snare of the devil," means:

noose-like trap for small game (1 Tim. 3:7)

noose-like trap  (2 Tim. 2:26)

 

What Does "Snare" mean in the Context of "Snare of the Devil"?

Webster's 1828 dictionary defines snare as:

n. 1. An instrument for catching animals, particularly fowls, by the leg. It consists of a cord or string with slip-knots, in which the leg is entangled. A snare is not a net.

2. Any thing by which one is entangled and brought into trouble. I Cor. 7. A fool's lip are the snare of his soul. Prov. 18.

The  Webster's definition that fits the context of "snare of the devil" is definition #2:

Anything by which one is entangled and brought into trouble.

The freedictionary.com defines snare as:

n. 1. A trapping device, often consisting of a noose, used for capturing birds and small mammals.
2. Something that serves to entangle the unwary.
3. A surgical instrument with a wire loop controlled by a mechanism in the handle, used to remove growths, such as tumors and polyps.

The definition that works for the context of "snare of the devil" is definition #2:

Something that serves to entangle the unwary.

 

D. A. Waite Jr. Redirects the Reader to His New Definition For Snare of the Devil

D. A. Waite's out of context definition for "snare" in "snare of the devil" effectively redirects the King James Bible's warning about the snare of the devil. Instead of the reader gathering from the context that the "snare of the devil" is a spiritual snare, D. A. Waite, Jr. "footnotes" him into believing the "snare of the devil" is merely:

 a noose-like trap for small game

The King James Bible reader can easily keep his eye out for an animal trap, especially since Satan does not use literal noose-like traps for small game in order to ensare the saints of God.

Beware of D.A. Waite Jr's false definition that changes a spiritual snare into a physical snare.

 

Warning: D. A. Waite, Sr. and D. A. Waite, Jr. have turned every spiritual snare in the King James Bible into a physical snare. They have removed God's warnings about dozens of spiritual snares by falsely defining each one as a "noose-like trap for small game"!

Ps. 124:7, 140:5, Prov. 7:23, Ecc. 9:12,
