King James Version (KJV)
14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shining in his strength.
Brass is a metal alloy made of copper and zinc; the proportions of zinc and copper can be varied to create a range of brasses with varying properties. The mixture and the way that it is heated determine the qualities it possesses.
Be with us today and keep watch over our hearts and minds. We, like brass, are a mixture of many things. Our past often rules over us. Help us to become more and more like You. May we have patience and self-control in every situation and never be rude or brassy, but stay true to Your word and meet all opposition with love.
Thank You, Lord for every blessing. May we see their opportunity and claim them in Jesus’ name. Amen.
