Next the artisans fashioned the Table of 12 loaves. After this, Moses threw gold for the Candelabrum into the furnace, and G-d fashioned the Candelabrum.Seven Ways to Light up the World
וַיַּעַשׂ אֶת הַמְּנֹרָה זָהָב טָהוֹר וגו’: (שמות לז:יז)
[G-d] made the Candelabrum out of pure gold. Exodus 37:17
The Candelabrum, the source of light in the Tabernacle, signified insight and enlightenment. The sudden and elusive flash of insight and illumination in the mind is similar to a bolt of lightning flashing across a dark sky.
Every Divine soul is a source of Divine illumination. It is in this sense that the soul is metaphorically termed “the lamp of God.” The seven lamps of the Candelabrum signify the seven basic types of Jewish souls. Each type has its particular path in revealing Divinity, based on the seven basic emotions:
(1) the love of God, (2) the awe of God, (3) connecting to God through studying the Torah, (4) overcoming obstacles opposing Godliness in the world, (5) appreciating God’s goodness, (6) the pride in being God’s emissary in the world, and (7) humility.1

Taking up the Bible, a Book of books, we should always remember that it were men chosen by God to write down His Words to help find people the way to live and to give them a stronghold.
Important by looking at those books and letting those words coming unto us, we should always remember what their purpose was and is, plus in which style they were written, always understanding the genre it was meant to be.
Also what we should care for is not to be carried away by human teachings or human doctrines. They often make it more difficult to come to a correct insight and easy understanding. Most people are afraid to put away those false teachings and human traditions, which becomes a hindrance to come to a good insight. Though God always has protected His Words and no matter whatever translation a person is using he or she can come to insight when he or she is willing to open his or her heart to God His Words. that is the primordial act to do, letting God speak to you.
We also may never forget that we are created in the image of God and have an inner voice leading us through life.

Genres in the Bible (adapted from “How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth” by Fee and Stuart).
The Bible is more of a library than a book! It contains literature of all different genres and types. Just as you wouldn’t read a novel the same way that you read your new employment contract, we can’t read every passage of scripture the same way. We need to pay attention to the genre of the passage we’re looking at and make sure we appreciate the tools that particular genre uses to communicate. One writer uses the analogy of a board game:
… there are different “game” rules involved in the interpretation of the different kinds of biblical literature. The author has played his “game,” has sought to convey his meaning, under the rules covering the particular literary form he used. Unless we know those rules, we will almost certainly misinterpret his meaning…
