'Useless' in the Bible
Instead of wheat let a thorn go forth, And instead of barley a useless weed! The words of Job are finished.
and he said unto the vine-dresser, Lo, three years I come seeking fruit in this fig-tree, and do not find, cut it off, why also the ground doth it render useless?
for what, if certain were faithless? shall their faithlessness the faithfulness of god make useless?
Law then do we make useless through the faith? let it not be! yea, we do establish law.
for if they who are of law are heirs, the faith hath been made void, and the promise hath been made useless;
this knowing, that our old man was crucified with him, that the body of the sin may be made useless, for our no longer serving the sin;
and the base things of the world, and the things despised did God choose, and the things that are not, that the things that are He may make useless --
And wisdom we speak among the perfect, and wisdom not of this age, nor of the rulers of this age -- of those becoming useless,
the meats are for the belly, and the belly for the meats. And God both this and these shall make useless; and the body is not for whoredom, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body;
The love doth never fail; and whether there be prophecies, they shall become useless; whether tongues, they shall cease; whether knowledge, it shall become useless;
and when that which is perfect may come, then that which is in part shall become useless.
When I was a babe, as a babe I was speaking, as a babe I was thinking, as a babe I was reasoning, and when I have become a man, I have made useless the things of the babe;
then -- the end, when he may deliver up the reign to God, even the Father, when he may have made useless all rule, and all authority and power --
and if the ministration of the death, in letters, engraved in stones, came in glory, so that the sons of Israel were not able to look stedfastly to the face of Moses, because of the glory of his face -- which was being made useless,
for if that which is being made useless is through glory, much more that which is remaining is in glory.
and are not as Moses, who was putting a vail upon his own face, for the sons of Israel not stedfastly to look to the end of that which is being made useless,
but their minds were hardened, for unto this day the same vail at the reading of the Old Covenant doth remain unwithdrawn -- which in Christ is being made useless --
