Bible study tip: In order to get a better grasp of a Bible word, try dividing your study into parts and then tying together the whole. For example, you might break a study of vanity into the following parts: things that can be considered vain (i.e., words, thoughts, etc.), companion words of vanity (i.e., deceived, deceit, falsehood, flattering, lying, etc.), and various feelings demonstrated toward vanity (i.e., anger, love, etc.). This will help the Bible student to grasp a deeper understanding.
