Self assignment: topic: Secret as a word with definitions and instances where it is discussed in the Bible

Definition of the word "Secret" by Rick Livermore


If you are struggling with the temptation to view porn, read and consider the following bible study on the topic of "secret" and pray about the things you will be reading.

https://tubitv.com/movies/457314/an_angel_on_abbey_street The tooth fairy told her she had to keep the 11.00 dollars a secret in the movie 

SECRET
sod (סוֹד, 5475), "secret or confidential plan(s); secret or confidential talk; secret; council; gathering; circle." This noun occurs 21 times in biblical Hebrew.
Sod means, first, "confidential talk": "Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked …" (Ps. 64:2). In Prov. 15:22 the word refers to plans which one makes on one's own and before they are shared by others: "Without counsel [self-made] purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counselors they [succeed]." Sometimes the word signifies simply a talk about something that should be kept confidential: "Debate thy cause with thy neighbor himself; and discover not a secret to another" (Prov. 25:9).
Second, the word represents a group of intimates with whom one shares confidential matters: "O my soul, come not thou into their [Simeon's and Levi's] secret; unto their assembly, mine honor, be not thou united …" (Gen. 49:6—the first occurrence of the word). Jer. 6:11 speaks of the "assembly [informal but still sharing confidential matters] of young men together." To "have sweet counsel" is to be in a group where everyone both shares and rejoices in what is being discussed and/or done (Ps. 55:14).

Matthew 6:1–4
    Moreover, be holding your mind on the matter of not practicing your correctness of thinking, feeling, and acting before men in order to be attentively viewed by them as a spectacular performer. Otherwise, a reward you do not have in the presence of your Father in heaven. Therefore, whenever you are practicing the virtues of mercy or beneficence, do not sound a trumpet before you as the actors on the stage of life do in the synagogues and in the streets in order that they may be held in honor by men. Assuredly, I am saying to you, they have their reward and the receipt for the same in full. But while you are practicing the virtues of mercy or beneficence, do not allow your left hand to know what your right hand is doing, in order that your mercy or beneficence may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

Matthew 6:5–8
    And whenever you are praying you shall not be as the actors on the stage of life, because they are fond of praying in the synagogues and while standing at the corners of avenues in order that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I am saying to you, They have their reward and the receipt for the same in full. But, as for you, whenever you are praying, enter into your secret and well-guarded place, and having closed your door, pray to your Father in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you. Moreover, when praying, do not repeat the same thing over and over as the pagans do, for they think that they will be heard because of their multiplicity of words. Therefore, do not be like them, for your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him for them.

Mark 4:21–25
    And He was saying to them, The lamp does not come, does it, in order to be placed under the peck measure or under the reclining couch? Does it not come in order to be placed upon the lampstand? For there is not anything which is hidden, except it be in order that it might be made known, nor has anything become hidden but in order that it might come into full view. Assuming that a person has ears to be hearing, let him be hearing. And He was saying to them, Keep ever a watchful eye on what you are hearing. In the measure by which you are measuring, it will be measured to you; and it will be measured to you not only according to that measure, but there will be some added on top of that. For he who has, it shall be given to him. And he who does not have, even that which he has shall be taken away from him.

Luke 8:16–18
But no one, having lighted a lamp, covers it with a hollow household utensil or places it down under a couch, but puts it upon a lampstand, in order that those entering may be seeing the light. For there is not anything which is concealed that shall not become known, nor even that which is hidden which shall not positively be made known, and come out into clear view. Therefore, be ever exercising watchful care how you are hearing, for whoever may be having, it shall be given to him, and whoever is not having, even that which he appears to be having, shall be taken away from him.

1 Corinthians 4:1–5
    In this manner let a man measure and classify us, as servants of Christ and as those who have been entrusted with the mysteries of God and their disposition. Under these circumstances it is further sought in stewards that a man be found to be faithful. But with me it is a very small thing that I am being put on trial by you by the [judicial] day of mankind. In fact, I do not even put myself on trial, for I am conscious of not even one thing against myself, but not by this means do I stand justified. Indeed, He who puts me on trial is the Lord. Wherefore, stop exercising censorious judgment with reference to anything before the epochal, strategic season, until that time whenever the Lord may come, who will both turn the light on the hidden things of the darkness and bring out into the open the counsels of the hearts. And then to each one there shall come his praise from God.

Eph 3:8–12
To me, the one who is less than the least of all saints, there was given this grace, to the Gentiles to proclaim the good news of the incomprehensible wealth belonging to the Christ, and to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which has been kept covered up from the beginning of the ages in the God who created all things, in order that there might be made known now to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places through the intermediate agency of the Church the much-variegated wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He carried into effect in the Christ, Jesus our Lord, in whom we are having our freedom of speech and entree in perfect confidence through faith in Him

Hebrews 4:9–13
    Therefore there remains over a rest for the people of God, for the one who entered His rest also himself rested from his works, even as God rested from His own works. Let us give diligence, therefore, to enter that rest, lest anyone fall in the same example of disobedience; for actively alive is the word of God, and energetic, and sharper than any two-edged sword, going through even to the dividing of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a sifter and analyzer of the reflections and conceptions of the heart. And there is not a thing created which is hidden from His sight. But all things are naked and laid bare to His eyes, to whom we must give account.

2. apokrupto (ἀποκρύπτω, 613), “to conceal from, to keep secret” (apo, “from,” and No. 1), is used metaphorically, in Luke 10:21, of truths “hidden” from the wise and prudent and revealed to babes; 1 Cor. 2:7, of God’s wisdom; Eph. 3:9, of the mystery of the unsearchable riches of Christ, revealed through the gospel Col. 1:26, of the mystery associated with the preceding.¶

In closing, I was looking for guidance from the Lord a while ago and I came across the following scripture, which has helped me when I am in need:

Eph 4:22 You were taught with reference to your former way of life to lay aside the old man who is being corrupted in accordance with deceitful desires, Eph 4:23 to be renewed in the spirit of your mind, Eph 4:24 and to put on the new man who has been created in God’s image—in righteousness and holiness that comes from truth.
