    I was looking specifically at the words, "I will pour out" in that verse. And a quick glance on the web said that phrase is the following: verb - Future - Indicative - Active - 1st Person Singular. My question is, what does all that mean? Thanks in advance for y'alls input.
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Future: The action shall take place at some time later on.
    Indicative: The verb is used in a standard sense to make statements, not expressing desires or issue commands
    Active: The agent directly performs the task, as opposed to the task being done "by someone or something", which would be the Passive voice.
    1st Person Singular: The action is done using "I" or "me".

    I hope this helps.
