Deuteronomy – Deu 15:1-6 “There Shall be no Poor Among You…”

[Study Aired March 20, 2020]

Deu 15:1  At the end of every seven years thou shalt make a release.
Deu 15:2  And this is the manner of the release: Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbour shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbour, or of his brother; because it is called the LORD’S release.
Deu 15:3  Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again: but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand shall release;
Deu 15:4  Save [this word “Save” is an old english word for “howbeit” – H657when there shall be no poor among you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance to possess it:
Deu 15:5  Only if thou carefully hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these commandments which I command thee this day.
Deu 15:6  For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, but thou shalt not borrow; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee.

The point is clear we are to take from these verses. If we are adhering to what we are supposed to be adhering, then we won’t be poor in truth, and we won’t have to ‘borrow’ from anyone. We will reign over other nations, but they will not reign over us. When we look at these verses in the literal reading of them, as the world does, we come up with the Babylonian doctrine of “prosperity”. There is a great following of this false doctrine in the world because it is grounded on feeding the flesh.

It is beieved that not only if I have great wealth and property is it a showing of my faithfulness, but my prosperity is an outward showing to the world, “I am being obedient to the Lord by my own freewill.” This doctrine puffs the man of sin up to such a degree that he is drowned in self-righteousness and self-glorification. However, these scriptures are not speaking of literal wealth or prosperity at all. They are written for our admonition and for our spiritual learning – “the flesh profits nothing” (Joh 6:63).

As always, I must tell a quick little experience to relate to these scriptures today. The last brick and mortar building I attended was about eight years ago. I went because of the request from a neighbor. We arrived at the building, and it was closed. Several people were standing outside waiting for the pastor to arrive to open up the building. I noticed that a lot of the people had walked there, and the building was in a relatively poor community. Then the pastor showed up in a newer looking black Cadillac. He got out dressed in a nice suit, and his wife got out with a big new hairdo and also fancy clothes. I mention their clothes because looking at the folks waiting on them, they were dressed pretty normal and some, like myself, had on bib overalls. They were simple folk, not people you would see all ‘gussied up’. Well, the pastor started in on his “sermon” telling them how Jesus died for them and that they needed to give all they had to the LORD; that when they held back from tithing, then the LORD held back from them. He delivered a “powerful message” (in his thoughts, I’m sure) on how the congregation was not giving enough to the church, not seeing the need of the church over their own needs.

Then of course he took the time to preach to that sorry soul who needed Jesus, (apparently me, because I was the only new person there that day). He needed to let that sorry soul ask himself if he knew where he would go if he died today? If he walked out of there today and died in a car crash, would he know he would be in heaven among the angels and his family. Then the sad music began to play on the organ, drawing its prey to the alter of Baal, and you could hear the sniffles as someone held back the tears. Oh, the state of that sorry soul!

When I look back it always reminded me of the cartoon when the man plays the instrument, and the snake comes out of the basket. I did not get up and do their altar call. I did not give them any money in their offering plate, and I did not tell the pastor, as everyone else did, that it was a POWERFUL SERMON. I walked out of there, and on the way home when the man with whom I went asked me what I thought of his church and if I’d go back. I told him that I would not go back. I did not know what I know today, but the LORD had taught me enough to know that this man’s church was not the Church of Jesus Christ, even though the sign said it was. Our verses today tell of not being poor, not having to borrow and not being ruled over by nations. That day, God freed me a little more from a damnable, grotesque place to which I knew I would never return.

Jud 1:18  How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

What makes us poor, and what makes us rich? KNOWING THE TRUTH. If we have Christ, we are rich. If we do not have Christ, we are poor. So, with that thought, what is lending and what is reigning over other nations? If we are rich in the doctrine of Christ, we are described as conquerors.

Rom 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

What is a conqueror? According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary a conqueror is, “one who conquers, one who wins a country in war, subdues or subjugates a people, or overcomes an adversary.”

So what do we conquer? The man of sin. If we are given the truth about who we are in Christ, if we are given to see that we are predestined before the world began to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ, and if we are given to hear these following words, then we are conquerors over the flesh and the world, and we become the richest people on the earth.

Rom 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Rom 8:29  For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Rom 8:30  Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Rom 8:31  What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
Rom 8:32  He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Rom 8:33  Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.
Rom 8:34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
Rom 8:35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Rom 8:36  As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Rom 8:37  Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
Rom 8:38  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Rom 8:39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When we are rich in these truths, we do not have to borrow peace and spiritual riches from our neighbor. When we see that what we are is what Christ wants us to be, and we are satisfied in the work of Christ, then we do not have to go out and buy books to teach us who Christ is, was and will be.

I have bought countless books written by Babylonian writers who thought they had the truth to teach me. But, they all led me back to the same place – good works based on my own freewill. All false doctrine leads to the man of sin, who exalts his throne as supreme over all others.

2Th 2:3  Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:4  Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
2Th 2:5  Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
2Th 2:6  And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
2Th 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
2Th 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

Our neighbor and other nations are the man of sin, as we are. That man of sin lives in us. We are conquering him daily, hourly, minute by minute. He comes off as a rich man, but really he is poor and has nothing to give.

Rev 3:17  Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
Rev 3:18  I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
Rev 3:19  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

We are poor in the flesh. We have no gold to offer God that would satisfy the debt we owe. We are poor and don’t even know it. We think we are rich and in need of nothing, but that’s because we are blinded by the man of sin. The man of sin has eaten of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, believing his eyes are opened and he can now see the truth. But, as the law does, the truth exposes what we are. It makes us poorer than what we were before we had the law.

1Ti 1:9  Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
1Ti 1:10  For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;
1Ti 1:11  According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

The truth is exactly that; the truth of what we are, what we were and what we will be if left to be reigned over by the man of sin. When we are dragged through Babylon, we are presented with the fruit that is forbidden to eat;

Gen 2:17  But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Babylon, who represents in the negative the false church, comes to us when we are in need and tries to satisfy our soul with the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil. It teaches us to make an image of ourselves that will get us to the throne of God.

Gen 11:1  And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
Gen 11:2  And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
Gen 11:3  And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter. [the building of the Babylonian churches]
Gen 11:4  And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

The word “plain” means:

The words “in the land” mean:

And the name of that land we dwell in is called “Shinar”.

When you put the meanings of these three words together, you get that we “dwell or live in a place between two mountains (mountains being powers) in our earth and are supplied by two different doctrines of thought”; what we see as good and what we see as evil. We think, in our own man of sin, that we have the power to know what is the power of evil and what is the power of good. We divide them as though we have the power and knowledge to know the difference between the two. These two mountains are powers in our eyes and we drink the water they supply from their rivers. This water is supplied by the doctrines of Babylon because we are taught that we are free moral agents from creation and can judge what is good and what is evil. Even though we have never known good or evil, we think we can judge what is good or evil. When God told Adam not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, how did Adam know what was good or what was evil? Everything that had been given to him by God, all that he knew, was given to him to know from God Himself, so how could he know that the death that was prophesied was a good or an evil? Nothing had ever died yet. How could he possibly judge that death was a bad thing, when he did not know what death was? This is the core of separating the doctrines of Babylon from the doctrines of Christ. When we believe the prosperity doctrines, we become poor. We may be deceived by lots of physical riches, but those riches are not riches but rather filth of the flesh. We become poor when we think we are blessed with physical riches because of what we have deemed as good works. Although scripture says we do not know good, we think we can, of our own free moral agency, choose good over evil.

Rom 3:10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
Rom 3:11  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
Rom 3:12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Rom 3:13  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:
Rom 3:14  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:
Rom 3:15  Their feet are swift to shed blood:
Rom 3:16  Destruction and misery are in their ways:
Rom 3:17  And the way of peace have they not known:
Rom 3:18  There is no fear of God before their eyes.
Rom 3:19  Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
Rom 3:20  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

These verses above describe a poor man who thinks he is rich, and describes all of mankind, as do these confirming verses below:

Rev 13:16  And it is causing all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, that they may be giving them an emblem on their right hand, or on their forehead,
Rev 13:17  and that no one may be able to buy or sell except the one having the emblem of the wild beast, or its name, or the number of its name.”
Rev 13:18  Here is wisdom. Let him who has a mind calculate the number of the wild beast, for it is the number of mankind, and its number is six hundred sixty-six.” (CLV)

We are all born into this world poor, blind, and naked. We are all born with absolutely nothing; no clothes, no riches, just bare flesh and screaming. From that point on we are taught the doctrines of our father the Devil through the blindness of our parents and society. We grow up thinking we are freewill beings, able to choose good and evil when we do not know what is good or what is evil. We just read in Romans that we are all, as one man in the first Adam, gone out of the way and together become unprofitable. The law shows us that we cannot perform that which is good and it was given to show us that very fact; we are all guilty before God, POOR, with nothing of value to redeem ourselves. We are all, from Adam until now, unprofitable beasts with nothing to offer God.

Ecc 3:18  I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

So, when we are dragged to this truth, and we must be dragged because the flesh refuses to give up their thoughts of freewill, our eyes are opened, [in aionian manner ,continually and daily] and we begin to see that what we called good, God called evil. Our supposed good works are so stained with evil intentions and self-glorification that the best of works are nothing but waste.

Isa 64:6  But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
Isa 64:7  And there is none that calleth upon thy name, that stirreth up himself to take hold of thee: for thou hast hid thy face from us, and hast consumed us, because of our iniquities.

Php 3:7  But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ.
Php 3:8  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
Php 3:9  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Php 3:10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Php 3:11  If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

Philippians 3:8 and 9 tell us how we become rich. We sell all that we thought was ours and buy the ONE thing that can make us rich, Christ. We sell ourselves by not claiming anything came from us and glorifying Christ as the Author and Finisher of everything we were, are and will be. We have nothing to offer God, and that makes us rich. Our verses today said that God would bless us in such a way that we would not have to borrow from our neighbor because we would have all we need to live. That which Christ has freely given us makes us rich and in need of nothing. Our flesh cannot offer us anything that will make us right with God, independent and separate from God, for our flesh was created to be destroyed. In that destruction we are shown that we are powerless and have no freedom at all. We are enslaved to the flesh from birth and will only do what the flesh desires. We have no freewill to choose or not to choose good or evil because we do not know what is good. Christ, ISRAEL, shows us this truth and in showing it to us we are freed from Egypt and made an Israelite, made into the image of our Creator and adopted into the nation named after its Creator, ISRAEL.

Gen 32:27  And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
Gen 32:28  And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob [Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more 2Co 5:15], but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

Jacob, in the negative, is our old man. Jacob is our first Adam, but Israel is our new man, the second Adam. As we are called Christians, named after Christ, so we should see the type and figure of Christ first becoming Jacob, supplanter (the meaning of Jacob – H3290), in the flesh, to become Israel in the spirit. Spiritual Israel shall rule as God (the meaning of Israel – H3478). We are born into this nation from its founder, Christ. We are blessed with all the riches of that nation because we were chosen before the world began to be called after the title of our Creator. If we continue in His goodness, knowing all power and honor derives from Christ and Christ alone, we shall be spiritually rich beyond understanding. We shall never thirst or hunger or have to borrow from our neighbour.

Rev 7:16  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
Rev 7:17  For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Although the above verses describe those who came out of the great tribulation, these blessings are described to us first because we are the first fruits unto God. We come to know this now, in this aion. Listen to verses 4-6 of our scriptures today in the Lexham english version.

Deu 15:4  Nevertheless, there shall not be among you a poor person, because Yahweh will certainly bless you in the land that Yahweh your God is giving to you as an inheritance, to take possession of it.
Deu 15:5  If only you listen well to the voice of Yahweh your God by observing diligently all of these commandments that I am commanding you today.
Deu 15:6  When Yahweh your God has blessed you, just as he promised to you, then you will lend to many nations, but you will not borrow from them, and you will rule over many nations, but they will not rule over you. (LEV)

“There shall not be among you a poor person” inwardly as individuals and within the body of Christ. Why? Because we will listen to the voice of our LORD Jesus Christ when He tells us we are being perfected in Him. We are in need of nothing, and nothing can come against us. Nothing can separate us from Him and His righteousness. He made us who we are. We did not make ourselves. No man can take us out of God’s hand, including the man of sin!

Joh 10:27  My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
Joh 10:28  And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
Joh 10:29  My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
Joh 10:30  I and my Father are one.

We are so united to Christ that His Father created Him for us. Christ was created to bring us to glory in Himself, and we are created to bring the rest of mankind to glory. Christ died for the world, and the world will be saved through this knowledge in the lake of fire when all that they believed was theirs will be burned up, and they shall be transformed from a carnal mind into a mind that is fashioned to glorify their Creator, Jesus Christ. None will ever be poor, none shall ever be thirsty, and none shall ever hunger again.

Rev 7:16  They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
Rev 7:17  For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

When the Bible says we shall lend to many nations but we will not borrow from them, this means we have abundance to give. The many nations now are inwardly that have ruled us and reigned over us through false doctrine. Those nations within us are being destroyed now and are being starved to death. When we are dragged to the truth, we come to realize that all these nations did not derive from themselves. They did not just pop up from our own construction of them. No, they were planted there by our Creator, just as the giants in the land of Canaan were planted there by God Himself. The literal people of the land of Canaan came from the lineage of the literal man, Canaan, who was the son of the literal man, Ham, who was the son of the literal man, Noah. They were planted in the literal lands to build the literal houses, cities, crops, and fields by God Himself. They were planted there to prepare the land that the literal Israelites would possess and of which they would reap the benefits.

Gen 10:1  Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.

Gen 10:6  And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

Gen 10:15  And Canaan begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth,
Gen 10:16  And the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite,
Gen 10:17  And the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite,
Gen 10:18  And the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite: and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.
Gen 10:19  And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest, unto Sodom, and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
Gen 10:20  These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.

So, too, it is with us today. Our lands, our earth, our flesh, were planted with giants, the people of Canaan for the purpose to feed us. They built our lands, dressed our fields, built our cities and towns and our houses, but for us, they were created to feed.

Num 14:9  Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not.

Mat 24:28  For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

We learn from the opposite of truth. We must see the opposite of truth before we can see the truth (2Th 2:3, 8). While seeing the false doctrines with which we were living, we are transformed into the new land, new doctrine of Christ. When we see that we had no freewill; that all we were was written in our books to live out by our Creator, we are able to turn (repent) (Rev 1:9-13) and see the spiritual, inward, application of the reason we were naturally living a life that revealed who we were, spiritually – dead in sin, as the literal Canaanites were in relation to the truth of who God was. Those houses, cities, and nations built by the spiritual Canaanite, or man of sin doctrine, are then taken and overcome. We no longer borrow from those doctrines while we live our new lives in our new land. Instead, we feed off them, and those false doctrines we once lived by are conquered and killed.

2Co 10:3  For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
2Co 10:4  (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)
2Co 10:5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
2Co 10:6  And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

We no longer are fed from the two mountains or powers or “dwell or live in a place between two mountains (mountains being powers) in our earth and are supplied by two different doctrines of thought, what we see as good and what we see as evil.” Instead we live by the ONE TRUTH, the One Mountain, the One power “that all things are good to them that love God, to them that are the called according to His purpose.” We no longer feed from the powers of the rivers that come from the two mountains between which we lived. We live by the ONE power, Jesus Christ, the ONE power above all that we called good or evil. We no longer go to our flesh for food through fleshly desires from a carnal mind but to Christ Who supplies all our needs. We no longer borrow from the flesh for spiritual food, but we live by the food supplied to us by Christ, daily. We no longer borrow from the doctrines of the world to get peace. We are no longer poor in the doctrine of Christ, and therefore we need not borrow from the nations within ourselves, from our old man, but rather put them to death from the old to the young, from the man, woman and child doctrines that we have stored up.

Deu 2:32  Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.
Deu 2:33  And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.
Deu 2:34  And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain: 

Deu 20:16  But of the cities of these people, which the LORD thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shalt save alive nothing that breatheth:
Deu 20:17  But thou shalt utterly destroy them; namely, the Hittites, and the Amorites, the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee:
Deu 20:18  That they teach you not to do after all their abominations, which they have done unto their gods; so should ye sin against the LORD your God.

All doctrines by which we lived are the houses, cities and nations where we dwelt. These are put to death, and we feed off them. We feed off them by learning that what we thought was our own individual actions were works in which we were predestined to walk. We learn that all that we were, are and will be is exactly what Christ has ordained. In this knowledge we have peace and are never poor in peace, because we see that all things were predestined to bring glory to God. In this truth we are delivered from the power of the flesh and are freed from serving it. We are freed daily from the lust of the flesh, and daily we die to the carnal mind. Daily we are transformed into the image of Christ. This is the power of Christ’s resurrection.

Php 3:8  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,
Php 3:9  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
Php 3:10  That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;
Php 3:11  If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead.

We cannot know the power of His resurrection until we have counted all thing loss, dead and not having anything good of ourselves to offer God, except Christ and His resurrection. This is being rich and not borrowing from our neighbour. We must stay focused on this truth. Everything we have been, are or will be is from Him, by Him, and by Him do they consist. Apostle Paul knew this and is why he counted ALL THINGS loss for the knowledge of Christ, and in this knowledge he experienced the power of Christ’s resurrection.
