The Hebrew word (anglicized as "pethach") rendered as "unfolding" is used elsewhere in Scripture in the sense of a door or gate. Just as passage through such a physical opening results in a wider perspective or field of view, a deeper study of God's words (with the inward help of the Holy Spirit, as well as through the use of tools such as commentaries or study guides, and discussions with other believers) "unfolds" the meaning of those words, and allows us to see the full range of applications and meanings that they can have in the lives of Christians.
