Is Avon calling?

If you Lord, should mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand? Ps.130:3 NKJV.

Iniquities, avon, Strong’s #5771 : Evil, fault, sin, iniquities, guilt, blame, moral illness, perversion, crookedness, wickedness and rebellion.  Avon is derived from avah, to “bend” or “distort.”

So iniquity is the “evil bent” within human beings, or the “crooked” direction or warped deeds of sinners. Avon occurs more than 220 times in the O.T.

Its first mentioned in Genesis 4:13, where Cain finally understands the enormity of his deed and states, “My punishment (iniquity) is greater than I can bear.” Knowing that iniquity is something too heavy to be borne by fallen humanity, God promised that His Suffering Servant would bear the iniquities of His people.bull
