Genesis 3:15 (b) This figure indicates that Satan would hinder the Lord JESUS in His earthly walk and would hurt Him but could not destroy Him.

Genesis 25:26 (c) Probably this may be taken as a type of the power that Jacob was to have over Esau because of the blessing which his father gave.

Genesis 49:17 (a) We may learn from this figure that Dan would be deceitful and underhanded in his dealings with others so that he would be a hinderer, a disturber of the peace, and would prevent the prosperity and progress of others.

Job 13:27 (c) This may be taken as a figurative statement that our walk is marked before GOD, and so that the walk of each person is different from every other person. It also has the actual meaning that every heel print is different from the print of every other heel. No two are alike. In some hospitals the feet of new-born babies are pressed upon carbon paper, and then upon wax, to leave a perfect imprint of those feet. No other baby will have prints similar to these.

Job 18:9 (b) By this we understand that the evildoer will be caught in his sin in various peculiar and unknown ways.

Psalm 41:9 (b) By this we understand that Judas secretly and deceitfully betrayed JESUS to His enemies. (See also John 13:18).

Psalm 49:5 (b) This evidently refers to the evils which were felt and remembered by the sons of Korah in their path and in their walk on previous occasions. (See Jeremiah 13:22).
