Trusting—found 191 times in 181 verses

Variations: trust, trusted, trustedst, trustest, trusteth, trusting, trusty

Defined: having confidence in or relying upon

First usage: Deuteronomy 28:52 (trustedst)

Last usage: 3 John 14 (trust)

Interesting fact: The various forms of the word trust appear 156 times in all the Old Testament with seventy-one of them occurring in the Book of Psalms. This frequency numbers more than the entire New Testament combined which only contains a form of the word trust thirty-five times. This means that the Book of Psalms focuses much attention upon man’s trust.

Bible study tip: When the Bible attributes to God features that relate to man (i.e., eyes, ears, hands, arms, a soul, a heart, etc.), it is important to consider the significance of such an attribution. Is it possible that each one might tend to emphasize a different feature of the person of God?
