Jehovah’s Eyes - Is He Looking at You? - Can you See His Face with Eyes of Understanding? - Learn How you can See Him! - It will Touch Your Heart! ???? God helps humans to understand and appreciate things about himself by likening them to things that we see and know well. Thus he speaks figuratively of his “eyes” being on his people, evidently indicating his watchfulness and loving care for them. The apostle Peter says: “The eyes of Jehovah are upon the righteous ones.” (1Pe 3:12) ???? God emphasizes this care and sensitiveness for their welfare when he speaks of his servants as “the pupil” of his eye, metaphorically representing their preciousness in his sight and his quickness to act in their behalf when touched by the enemy. ???? (Deuteronomy 32:10) . . .He came to find him in a wilderness land, And in an empty, howling desert. He began to encircle him, to take care of him, To safeguard him as the pupil of his eye." ???? (Psalm 17:8) . . .Keep me as the pupil of the eyeball, In the shadow of your wings may you conceal me." ???? Describing God’s observation of the actions of all men, Jeremiah wrote that His “eyes are opened upon all the ways of the sons of men, in order to give to each one according to his ways.” (Jer 32:19) ???? Of Jehovah’s omniscience and his purpose to exercise justice toward all, the apostle Paul wrote: “There is not a creation that is not manifest to his sight, but all things are naked and openly exposed to the eyes of him with whom we have an accounting.” (Hebrews 4:13) ???? (2 Chronicles 16:9) . . .For, as regards Jehovah, his eyes are roving about through all the earth to show his strength in behalf of those whose heart is complete toward him." ???? (Psalm 66:7) 7 He is ruling by his mightiness to time indefinite. Upon the nations his own eyes keep watch. As for those who are stubborn, let them not be exalted in themselves. Se′lah." ???? (Proverbs 15:3) . . .The eyes of Jehovah are in every place, keeping watch upon the bad ones and the good ones." ???? Of the searching quality of God’s examination of men, the psalmist says: “His own eyes behold, his own beaming eyes examine the sons of men.”—Ps 11:4 ???? One cannot understand God’s purposes without the gift of spiritual eyesight. On the other hand, Jehovah hides his truth from the eyes of those who are stubborn or rebellious, letting “their eyes become darkened.” (Ro 11:8-10) ???? (Luke 19:42) . . .saying: “If you, even you, had discerned in this day the things having to do with peace—but now they have been hid from your eyes." ???? “They have [literal] eyes, but they cannot see [spiritually].”—Jer 5:21 ???? (Isaiah 59:10) . . .We keep groping for the wall just like blind men, and like those without eyes we keep groping. We have stumbled at high noon just as in evening darkness; among the stout ones [we are] just like dead people." ???? jw.org
