“eat this scroll” Reminds me of the verse we read in Jeremiah, “Thy words were found by me and I ate them, and your words became for me a joy and the delight of my heart…” (Jer. 15:16) And also this verse “The ordinances of the Lord…are more precious than gold, sweeter also than honey from the comb.” (Psalm 19:9-10) and this verse, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” (Psalm 34:8) People talk about eating their words, but that’s because they said something bad. We’re encouraged to eat God’s words because they are “sweeter than honey”. Interesting.
