comment Matthe 18:10 "Children's angels always behold the face of the Father" - what does this mean?
@AndreasBlass - "The verse doesn't say that adults don't also have guardian angels who behold the face of God" - However, the verse doesn't say 'their angels do ALSO always behold the face of my Father' either. True, the verse does not deny the fact of existence of an individual guardian angel for each adult, but neither does it explicitly state that it talks exactly about the individual guardian angels. It may be a special group of angels that are somehow responsible for some additional protection for humans while they are still in the early days of their life course.

@Andrew - By 'this place' I meant 'this place in the Scriptures', that is, Matthew 18:10. Perhaps, the word 'verse' would be better here. I will edit my question.

comment Rev 9:4: Do not hurt the non-existing grass?
So, what you are saying is that this verse should be rendered as something like "and they were told to hurt – not any grass of the earth, not any green thing, not any tree – but the people who have no seal...". I mean it is a kind of poetical way, so to say, to emphasize the locusts' main object of their pain-inflicting, right? Well, that makes perfect sense to me.

comment Rev 9:4: Do not hurt the non-existing grass?
However, even if we take the figurative approach, it still doesn't answer my question. My question was how come the locusts are told not to hurt the grass when the grass is already gone, be it literal grass or figurative.

@FumbleFingers - "I've only got one vote here" - Does that mean that you can't write answers here?

@FumbleFingers Ah, I see. Why wouldn't you re-write it as an answer?
