Casting My Cares

have found that a good way to understand Scripture verses more deeply, is to read various translations of the Bible, and also, to look up definitions of certain words found in the verse. This week, the word "cast" in Psalms 55:22 caught my attention. One of the definitions of the word in Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of The Bible, is ~ “to hurl”. Searching further in the Primary Dictionary Series: Dictionary 4, the word “hurl” is defined ~ “to throw something violently”. Based on these  definitions, my understanding of the verse would read like this: “throw your cares violently on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.”
I have a few cares I can do that with, do you?
