Numbers‬ ‭23:19‬

“God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?”

‭‭Numbers‬ ‭23:19‬

God is not man,

Man H376: Contracted for אֱנוֹשׁ H582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation.) H582: From אָנַשׁ H605; properly a mortal (and thus differeing from the more dignified אָדָם H120); hence a man in general (singly or collectively). It is often unexpressed in the English Version, especially when used in apposition with another word. H605: A primitive root; to be frail, feeble, or (figuratively) melancholy: - desperate (-ly wicked), incurable, sick, woeful.

That he should lie,

“By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written, ‘That you may be justified in your words, and prevail when you are judged.’”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭3:4‬

Or a son of man,

Man H120: From אָדַם H119; ruddy, that is, a human being (an individual or the species, mankind, etc.): - X another, + hypocrite, + common sort, X low, man (mean, of low degree), person. H119: To show blood (in the face), that is, flush or turn rosy: - be (dyed, made) red (ruddy).

“But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:24‬

Son H1121: From בָּנָה H1129; a son (as a builder of the family name), in the widest sense (of literal and figurative relationship, including grandson, subject, nation, quality or condition, etc., (like אָב H1, אָח H251, etc.) H1129: A primitive root; to build (literally and figuratively).

“Bear fruits in keeping with repentance. And do not begin to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I tell you, God is able from these stones to raise up children for Abraham.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭3:8‬

That he should change his mind.

Change his mind (KJV: repent) H5162: A primitive root; properly to sigh, that is, breathe strongly; by implication to be sorry, that is, (in a favorable sense) to pity, console or (reflexively) rue ; or (unfavorably) to avenge (oneself): - comfort (self), ease [one's self], repent (-er, -ing, self).

“Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:2‬

Has he said, and will he not do it?

“But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one dot of the Law to become void.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭16:17‬

Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

“For, Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay;”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭10:37‬

“And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

‭‭Revelation‬ ‭22:7‬
