Easton's Bible Dictionary - Earth
In the sense of soil or ground, the translation of the word Adamah' . In Genesis 9:20 "husbandman" is literally "man of the ground or earth." Altars were to be built of earth ( Exodus 20:24 ). Naaman asked for two mules' burden of earth (2 Kings 5:17 ), under the superstitious notion that Jehovah, like the gods of the heathen, could be acceptably worshipped only on his own soil. (2). As the rendering of 'Erets , It means the whole world ( Genesis 1:2 ); the land as opposed to the sea (1:10). Erets Also denotes a country (21:32); a plot of ground (23:15); the ground on which a man stands (33:3); the inhabitants of the earth (6:1; 11:1); all the world except Israel ( 2 Chronicles 13:9 ).

Holman Bible Dictionary - Earth, Land
Earth and land are the principle meanings of the Hebrew word erets. Earth and land differ in the degree of space involved: “earth” encompasses the whole planet; “land” designates a limited area.
Erets as Entire Created Sphere or Material Realm In Genesis 1:1,2 the earth ( erets ) is created with the heavens. However, the sentence structure stresses the earth more than the heavens. Creation brought to the earth both form and content. Light made the earth's form and content visible. The waters were separated and put in appropriate places. An earth that was exceedingly good came from God's creation (Genesis 1:31 ).
Other parts of the Bible also speak of God creating the earth (Isaiah 40:28 ; Isaiah 45:12 ). The Bible stresses God's personal involvement: “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth” (Isaiah 48:13 ). Compare Job 26:7 ; Isaiah 42:5 ; Isaiah 45:18 . The whole earth is the result of God's creative activity. Biblical writers distinguished the heavens from the waters beneath it: Graven images were forbidden of “any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth” (Deuteronomy 5:8 ).
Erets as Specific Territory or Land Interpreters and translators must decide whether erets means the whole earth or a specific land. The literary context (that which comes before and after the word) helps determine the precise meaning.
Naaman, the commander of the army of Syria, came to Elisha to be healed of leprosy. The maid of Naaman's wife told her mistress that Elisha could cure Naaman of leprosy. She was called “the maid that is of the land (erets ) of Israel” (2 Kings 5:4 ). Naaman, however, said of Elisha's God, “I know that there is no God in all the earth (erets ), but in Israel” (2 Kings 5:15 ). The context indicates that the same word in one verse means “land” and in another verse means the more comprehensive “earth.”
The territory of Babylon is called “the land of the Chaldeans” (Jeremiah 50:1 ,Jeremiah 50:1,50:8 ,Jeremiah 50:8,50:25 ); yet in Jeremiah 50:23 , Babylon's great military power is called “the hammer of the whole earth.” Again, within one chapter, erets means both “land” and “earth.”
Erets as Ground that Produces The prophet Haggai condemned his people for being concerned with their own houses while the house of the Lord lay in ruins. The Lord had judged them. A literal translation would be, “There has been no dew from the heavens, and the land [1] has withheld its produce” (Haggai 1:10 ).
Zechariah promised that the Lord would not deal with the remnant of His people as He had in former days. “The vine shall give her fruit, and the ground (ha'arets) shall give her increase” (Zechariah 8:12 ).
Jeremiah was perplexed (and so was the Lord) about those who went far from Him. They never asked (again in literal translation), “Who brought us up from the land [2] of Egypt?” They never asked who led them “in a land of deserts and pits, in a land of drought and deep darkness, in a land that none passes through and where no person dwells” (Jeremiah 2:6 ). God brought them into a territory described as a garden land to enjoy the good fruits that the land or ground produced. Tragically, they defiled that land (Jeremiah 2:7 ). Although the people were blessed by what the land or ground produced, they did not respond to the covenant God who had blessed them with it.
Erets as What Is Beneath the Earth or Land—the Underworld The prophet Ezekiel wrote literally of “the land of lowest places” ( Ezekiel 26:20 ). People of Tyre were going there (Ezekiel 26:15 ,Ezekiel 26:15,26:20 ). The people of Egypt were going there (Ezekiel 31:2 ,Ezekiel 31:2,31:14 ,Ezekiel 31:14,31:16 ,Ezekiel 31:16,31:18 ; Ezekiel 32:18 ,Ezekiel 32:18,32:24 ). The RSV translates erets in this case as “the nether world.” The NIV uses “the earth below.” Sheol was another name for the place of the departed dead (Ezekiel 31:15-17 NAS).
Hezekiah, when he became ill and then recovered by God's action, described his fear of being confined to the gates of Sheol. “I shall not see the Lord, even the Lord in the land of the living” (Isaiah 38:11 ). His bodily dwelling would be “removed from me as a shepherd's tent” (Isaiah 38:12 ). Job described life after death as a life in a land of darkness and deep gloom, deep shadow and chaos (Job 10:21-22 ). David saw those who sought to destroy him as being judged by God and as going down to “the lower parts of the earth” (Psalm 63:9 ).
In the Old Testament, the heavenly realm, the earthly realm, and the sub-earthly realm all described the place of God and angels, the place of people now alive, and the place of those who have died. The New Testament reveals more. Believers go to be with Christ (Philippians 1:21-24 ). In both the Old and New Testaments, earthly decisions and actions influenced future destiny.
Theological Questions Regarding Erets To whom did the land of Canaan belong? Who was to own and use the land?
According to Joel 2:18-19 , the land of Canaan belonged to Yahweh. God was jealous “for his land.” He would judge the nations because they had “parted my land” (Joel 3:2 ). God promised Abraham that He would establish His covenant with Abraham and with his descendants as an everlasting covenant; all the “land of Canaan” was to be for an everlasting possession (Genesis 17:8-9 ).
Do these verses tell us who is to own and use the land? No, because Israel broke that covenant. Paul spoke of an old covenant and a new covenant ( 2 Corinthians 3:6 , 2 Corinthians 3:14 ). Jeremiah spoke about both covenants. The new covenant was not like the old “which my covenant brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord” (Jeremiah 31:32 ). The Holy Spirit testifies to Christians about the new covenant (Hebrews 10:15-18 ). The land belongs to the Lord, and He may apportion it to whomever He pleases.
Use and Ownership of Land (erets) Those who joined land to land, house to house, field to field (in land monopolies) were condemned (Isaiah 5:8-10 ). Woe was pronounced on selfish wealthy people—those at ease in Zion, those who lay on beds of ivory (Amos 6:1 ,Amos 6:1,6:4 ). Micah pronounced woes upon those who “covet fields, and take them by violence; and houses, and take them away” (Micah 2:2 ). To prevent consolidation of land in the hands of a few, Leviticus proposed a fifty-year jubilee to return property to families (Leviticus 25:1 ). “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me” (Leviticus 25:23 ). People were to permit redemption of the land to prevent its being controlled by only a few. The Lord of heaven and earth is also the Lord of individual lands. All of the earth as well as specific parts should be used to promote a good life for the inhabitants. People are to give thanks to the One who provided them with the means to achieve such a life.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Earth
erets in Hebrew; gee in Greek, designating either the whole globe, or land as opposed to sea, or a particular land; to be distinguished by the context. A distinct term expresses the material of which the earth consists damaah , the "ground," "soil," from whence Adam was named (Genesis 2:7), his body coming from and returning to the earth (Genesis 3:19), a different word "dust" (Job 10:9; Ecclesiastes 12:7). Naaman desired to have two mules' burden of earth of the Holy Land ('Εretz Ιsrael ), whether for an altar or other sacred purpose (Exodus 20:24), a half-paganish nation that God would accept devotions in connection with that soil rather than with any other.
In James 5:17 it is translated: "it rained not on the land (of Israel)"; for the drought was a judgment, not on the whole earth, but on Israel; compare Luke 4:25. So in Luke 23:44 "there was darkness over all the land," not "all the earth"; compare Matthew 27:45. In 1 Corinthians 15:47-49, "the first man is of the earth, earthy," contrasted with "the Lord from heaven" and "the heavenly," the term is choikos , not merely earthly, i.e. born upon earth, but "earthy," literally, "of heaped clay," answering to the surface "dust" in the Old Testament of which man is made; not merely terrestrial, but terrene, therefore, transitory.
Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - New Heavens And a New Earth
The idea of new heavens and a new earth is explicitly noted in Isaiah 65:17 ; 66:22 ; 2 pe 3:13 ; and Revelation 21:1 . The Old Testament has no term that directly translates as "universe"; the phrase "heavens and earth" was the Hebrew way of referring to the universe they knew. This imagery is set in prophetic-apocalyptic texts that hold forth future hope for a redeemed world that transcends the sinful world we know. It is especially noteworthy to observe how the closing chapters of Revelation reflect the motifs of Genesis 1-3 . The world God originally created suffered the catastrophe of sin and all of its consequences but the future new world will be a perfect world in which the effects of sin are no longer present. The phrase in Revelation 21:1 , "and there was no longer any sea, " illustrates this imagery of a new perfect environment. The sea is used in apocalyptic literature as a symbol of chaos and may symbolize evil. The beast came from the sea (Revelation 13:1 ). The great harlot sits on many waters (Revelation 17:1 ). The absence of the sea in the restored universe symbolizes that the deliverance for which the creation groans has been realized (cf. Romans 8:18-22 ; Revelation 21:27 ).
The concept of new things is a major motif in redemptive history, especially in eschatological passages. The new heavens and earth in Revelation 21 is the consummation of many new things. The crescendo for redemptive history is stated in verse 5, "everything new"! The journey toward this climax includes a new covenant ( Jeremiah 31:31 ), a new name (Isaiah 62:2 ; cf. Revelation 2:17 ; 3:12 ), a new song (Isaiah 42:10 ; Revelation 5:9 ; 14:3 ), a new spirit/heart (Ezekiel 11:19 ; 18:31 ; 36:26 ), new wine (Matthew 9:17 ; Mark 2:22 ; Luke 5:37-38 ), and the new Jerusalem (Revelation 3:12 ; 21:2 ). The concept of newness and renewal is prominent in extrabiblical apocalyptic literature as well.
The primary new heavens and new earth texts yield a variety of contexts while still focusing upon the future restoration. Isaiah 65-66 provides comfort that the devastation Israel has observed in their history is not Yahweh's ultimate intention for his people. The use of bara [1] (to create) in 65:17 probably calls to mind the creation account of Genesis 1 . The old and new creation thus become the terminal points of redemptive history. Second Peter 3:13, while in a context that addresses eschatological issues, is actually focused on ethics. The ethical dimension of Christian living is intensified by the prospect of the future renovation of heaven and earth. Second Peter 3:1,11, 14, and 17 exhort godly living in light of the future. The final clause of 3:13 also highlights this nuance by noting that it will be an earth in which righteousness dwells. The call to ethics is a prominent theme in New Testament prophetic passages. The last reference is Revelation 21:1 . Revelation 21-22 provides the crescendo to prophetic-apocalyptic biblical revelation. It is interesting that the imaging of eternity has humankind on a restored earth, not in God's heavenly realm. This is certainly the eternal state and not a millennial scene. The sea is gone from Revelation 21 but not from other millennial images. Human history climaxes where it all began: on the earth.
The manner in which the new heavens and earth come into existence is a matter of debate among biblical scholars. Are these descriptions purely apocalyptic genre, and thereby merely mythical symbols of an eschatological salvation without historical continuity? Or are these prophetic statements that utilize certain characteristics of apocalyptic imagery to describe the historical future? It seems wiser to speak in terms of the latter and call it prophetic-apocalyptic. Therefore, the question of the nature of bringing the new heavens and earth into existence is in regard to whether the new creation comes into existence by means of renewal (a renovation of the old) or replacement (a totally new act of creation). Such a question may be more influenced by our modern scientific curiosity than by textual indicators. The apostle John was more impressed with the fact and nature of the new order than by how it will come about. Yet part of exegesis and theology is to theorize these questions.
The replacement view claims 2 Peter 3:12b-13 as its key text. It is claimed that this tradition is reflected in Matthew 5:18 (cf. Mark 13:31 ; Luke 16:17 ) and 1 John 2:17 . References in the Didache (10:6), 2Clement (16:3), and 1Enoch (72:1; 83:3-5; 91:15-16) are cited as reflecting a replacement view. Some would note that Isaiah 65:17 uses the same term as Genesis 1:1 ( bara [ Psalm 51:10 ).
The renewal (also called renovation) view is more widely represented in the literature on this subject. Second Peter 3:12b-13 is viewed as a purging of the old heaven and earth and forming it into the new. The catastrophe is comparable to Noah's flood, which was only a temporary fix. This provides a continuity and fulfillment of the purposes God began in the original creation and has now been brought to completion. There is a continuity of substance now given new form. Christ's incarnation and the believer's resurrection body provide analogies although in different realms. The term palingenesia [ 2 Corinthians 5:17 ; Hebrews 8:13 ).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Earth Earthen Earthy Earthly
Earth (γῆ) is used in a variety of meanings, which may be distinguished as follows: (1) the dust or matter of which the first man was made (1 Corinthians 15:47); (2) the fertile soil which yields grass and herbs and fruit (Hebrews 6:7, James 5:7, Revelation 9:4); (3) the solid ground upon which men stand or fall (Acts 9:4; Acts 9:8); (4) the land in contrast with the sea (2 Peter 3:5, Revelation 10:5); (3) the whole world as the abode of men (Acts 1:8, etc.; equivalent here to the more frequent οἰκουμένη) or beasts (Acts 10:12; Acts 11:6); (6) the earth in space, in contrast with the visible heavens-skies and stars (Acts 2:19, Revelation 6:13); (7) the earth in contrast with the invisible heavens-the dwelling-place of God and Christ, of angels and perfected saints (Acts 7:49, 1 Corinthians 15:47, Ephesians 3:15, Hebrews 8:4; cf. Hebrews 8:1); (8) the earth in contrast with the underworld (Philippians 2:10, Revelation 5:3; Revelation 5:13); (9) the earth with a moral connotation, as the sphere of a merely worldly life to which is opposed the heavenly life with Christ in God (Colossians 3:2; Colossians 3:5).
Earthen (ὀστράκινος, fr. [1] ὄστρακον =‘burnt clay,’ or anything made therefrom).-The Gr. word occurs twice in the NT, but in English Version is only once translated ‘earthen.’ In 2 Timothy 2:20 the rendering is ‘of earth,’ and the reference is simply to the material of the earthen vessels in contrast with those of gold and silver and wood. In 2 Corinthians 4:7, where ‘earthen’ is used, there appears to be a suggestion not only of the meanness of the earthen vessels in contrast with the preciousness of the treasure they contain, but of their frailty in contrast with the exceeding greatness of the Divine power of God who uses them as His instruments.
Earthy (χοϊκός, ‘made of earth,’ fr. [1] χοῦς =‘earth,’ ‘dust,’ by which in the Septuagint עָפָר is rendered in Genesis 2:7, etc.; though in other passages γῆ is frequently employed for the same purpose, just as it is by St. Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:47).-The only occurrence of the word is in 1 Corinthians 15:47-49, where Adam is called ‘earthy,’ i.e. consisting of earth-material, in contrast with Christ, the ‘heavenly,’ i.e. of heavenly origin. The meaning of ‘earthy’ here is thus suggested by (7) above as well as by (1).
Earthly (ἐπίγειος, ‘upon the earth,’ ‘terrestrial,’ 2 Corinthians 5:1, Philippians 3:19, James 3:15).-Outside of the Fourth Gospel ‘earthly’ occurs only 3 times in the NT, but ἐπίγειος is found also in 1 Corinthians 15:40, where English Version renders ‘terrestrial,’ and Philippians 2:10, where English Version gives ‘things on earth.’ In all these passages there is a contrast of the earthly with the heavenly. In 1 Corinthians 15:40, 2 Corinthians 5:1 the contrast is that suggested under (7). In Philippians 3:19, James 3:15 it is that suggested under (9). In Philippians 2:10, while ‘things on earth’ are contrasted with ‘things in heaven’ the meaning of ἐπίγειος itself is that suggested by (5), the ‘things on earth’ being the inhabitants of the whole world; and there is a further contrast with the ‘things under the earth,’ the inhabitants of the under world (cf. (8)).

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Inhabiters of the Earth
A designation of those mentioned in the Revelation, who, notwithstanding the successive judgements that fall upon them, cling to the earth as settlers there, and against whom 'woe, woe, woe' is pronounced. Revelation 8:13 ; Revelation 17:2 . During Christ's rejection from the earth God's call has been to heaven, hence to have the character of dwelling on earth is a denial of the heavenly calling. In Revelation 12:12 the Editors omit the words 'inhabiters of.'

Exodus 15:12 (a) This statement probably refers to the incident in the life of Moses when the earth opened up a cavity and Korah, Dothan and Abiram went down alive into hell. (See Numbers 16:29-33).
Deuteronomy 32:1 (a) The word refers to the peoples of the earth in every nation, for it is the desire of our Lord that all shall hear His Word. (See also1Ch 16:31; Job 20:27; Psalm 96:11; Isaiah 24:4; Isaiah 45:22).
Psalm 63:9 (a) This statement clearly indicates that hell is in the heart of the earth. There are many other passages that confirm this truth. (See under "HELL").
Matthew 13:5 (c) The teaching probably is that there was nothing in the heart of the hearer, nor in his mind, which would enable him to receive or understand GOD's Word. (See also Mark 4:5).

King James Dictionary - Earth
EARTH, n. erth.
1. Earth, in its primary sense, signifies the particles which compose the mass of the globe, but more particularly the particles which form the fine mold on the surface of the globe or it denotes any indefinite mass or portion of that matter. We throw up earth with a spade or plow we fill a pit or ditch with earth we form a rampart with earth. This substance being considered, by ancient philosophers, as simple, was called an element and in popular language, we still hear of the four elements, fire, air,earth, and water. 2. In chimistry, the term earth was, till lately, employed to denote a simple elementary body or substance, tasteless, inodorous, uninflammable and infusible. But it has also been applied to substances which have a very sensible alkaline taste, as lime. The primitive earths are reckoned ten in number, viz, silex, alumin, lime, magnesia, baryte, strontian, zircon, glucin, yttria and thorina. Recent experiments prove that most or all of them are compounds of oxygen with bases, some of which appear to possess the properties of metals. In this case the earths are to be considered as metallic oxyds. 3. The terraqueous globe which we inhabit. The earth is nearly spherical, but a little flatted at the poles, and hence its figure is called an oblate spheroid. It is one of the primary planets, revolving round the sun in an orbit which is between those of Venus and Mars. It is nearly eight thousand miles in diameter, and twenty five thousand miles in circumference. Its distance from the sun is about ninety five millions of miles,and its annual revolution constitutes the year of 365 days, 5 hours, and nearly 49 minutes. 4. The world, as opposed to other scenes of existence. 5. The inhabitants of the globe. The whole earth was of one language. Genesis 11
6. Dry land, opposed to the sea. God called the dry land earth. Genesis 1
7. Country region a distinct part of the globe. In this sense, land or soil is more generally used.
In scripture, earth is used for a part of the world. Ezra 1.2 .
8. The ground the surface of the earth. He fell to the earth. The ark was lifted above the earth. In the second month--was the earth dried. Genesis 8
9. In scripture, things on the earth, are carnal, sensual, temporary things opposed to heavenly, spiritual or divine things. 10. Figuratively, a low condition. Revelation 12 11. from ear, L. aro, to plow. The act of turning up the ground in tillage. Not used. EARTH, To hide in the earth.
The fox is earthed.
1. To cover with earth or mold. EARTH, To retire under ground to burrow. Here foxes earthed.
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Earth
There are many senses in which this word is used in holy Scripture. In general, it means the gross matter which forms a bed, and sustains the life of trees, and fruit, and of vegetable life. God called the dry land earth. (Genesis 1:10) Sometimes it is put for the people, and sometimes for their property. The earth, it is said, was filled with violence. (Genesis 6:13) And respecting property, we are told, that while the heavens are the Lord's, the earth hath he given to the children of men. (Psalms 115:16) I have somewhere read of the presumptuous gift of one of the princes of the earth, assuming to himself this grant, making a deed of gift to one of his favorites, of a certain portion of the land, the charter of which ran in words to this effect: "I give all that is from heaven to the centre of the earth, including the minerals in the bowels of it," etc. Poor vain man! when shortly after, all that he could embrace of the earth, or the earth him, was just his own breadth and length to lie down upon for corruption and to mingle with in the dust! The word earth is also spoken of by way of a natural and moral sense, Hence, in opposition to spirit, the Scripture describes the first man as of the earth, earthy; while the second man is declared to be, the Lord from heaven. And Jesus himself defines the essential difference, he that is of the earth, speaketh of the earth, he that cometh from heaven, is above all. (See 1 Corinthians 15:47-48; John 3:31)
Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Earth
Erets (אֶרֶץ, Strong's #776), “earth; land.” This is one of the most common Hebrew nouns, occurring more than 2,500 times in the Old Testament. It expresses a world view contrary to ancient myths, as well as many modern theories seeking to explain the origin of the universe and the forces which sustain it.
'Erets may be translated “earth,” the temporal scene of human activity, experience, and history. The material world had a beginning when God “made the earth by His power,” “formed it,” and “spread it out” (Isa. 40:28; 42:5; 45:12, 18; Jer. 27:5; 51:15). Because He did so, it follows that “the earth is the Lord’s” (Ps. 24:1; Deut. 10:1; Exod. 9:29; Neh. 9:6). No part of it is independent of Him, for “the very ends of the earth are His possession,” including “the mountains,” “the seas,” “the dry land,” “the depths of the earth” (Ps. 2:8; 95:4-5; Amos 4:13; Jonah 1:9). God formed the earth to be inhabited (Isa. 45:18). Having “authority over the earth” by virture of being its Maker, He decreed to “let the earth sprout vegetation: of every kind” (Job 34:13; Gen. 1:11). It was never to stop its productivity, for “while the earth stands, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Gen. 8:22). “The earth is full of God’s riches” and mankind can “multiply and fill the earth and subdue it” (Ps. 104:24; Gen. 1:28; 9:1). Let no one think that the earth is an independentself-contained mechanism, for “the Lord reigns” as He “sits on the vault of the earth” from where “He sends rain on the earth” (Ps. 97:1; Isa. 40:22; 1 Kings 17:14; Ps. 104:4).
As “the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the earth,” He sees that “there is not a just man on earth” (Eccl. 7:20). At an early stage, God endeavored to “blot out man … from the face of the earth” (Gen. 6:5-7). Though He relented and promised to “destroy never again all flesh on the earth,” we can be sure that “He is coming to judge the earth” (Gen. 7:16f.; Ps. 96:13). At that time, “the earth shall be completely laid waste” so that “the exalted people of the earth fade away” (Jer. 10:10; Joel 2:10; Isa. 33:3-6; Ps. 75:8). But He also provides a way of escape for all who heed His promise: “Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth” (Isa. 45:22).
What the Creator formed “in the beginning” is also to have an end, for He will “create a new heaven and a new earth” (Isa. 65:17; 66:22).
The Hebrew word 'erets also occurs frequently in the phrase “heaven and earth” or “earth and heaven.” In other words, the Scriptures teach that our terrestrial planet is a part of an all-embracing cosmological framework which we call the universe. Not the result of accident or innate forces, the unfathomed reaches of space and its uncounted components owe their origin to the Lord “who made heaven and earth” (Ps. 121:2; 124:8; 134:3).
Because God is “the possessor of heaven and earth,” the whole universe is to reverberate in the praise of His glory, which is “above heaven and earth” (Gen. 14:19, 22; Ps. 148:13). “Shout, O heavens and rejoice, O earth”: “let the heavens be glad and let the earth rejoice” (Ps. 49:13; 96:11). Such adoration is always appropriate, for “whatever the Lord pleases, He does in heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all deeps” (Ps. 135:6).
'Erets does not only denote the entire terrestrial planet, but is also used of some of the earth’s component parts. English words like land, country, ground, and soil transfer its meaning into our language. Quite frequently, it refers to an area occupied by a nation or tribe. So we read of “the land of Egypt,” “the land of the Philistines,” “the land of Israel,” “the land of Benjamin,” and so on (Gen. 47:13; Zech. 2:5; 2 Kings 5:2, 4; Judg. 21:21). Israel is said to live “in the land of the Lord” (Lev. 25:33f.; Hos. 9:13). When the people arrived at its border, Moses reminded them that it would be theirs only because the Lord drove out the other nations to “give you their land for an inheritance” (Deut. 4:38). Moses promised that God would make its soil productive, for “He will give rain for your land” so that it would be “a fruitful land,” “a land flowing with milk and honey, a land of wheat and barley” (Deut. 11:13-15; 8:7-9; Jer. 2:7).
The Hebrew noun may also be translated “the ground” (Job 2:13; Amos 3:5; Gen. 24:52; Ezek. 43:14). When God executes judgment, “He brings down the wicked to the ground” (Ps. 147:6, NASB).
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Earth
Earth. Psalms 24:1. Besides the ordinary acceptation of the word, as in the passage cited, it is used by the sacred writers to denote only a particular country. Thus, the phrase, Ezra 1:2, "all the kingdoms of the earth," means only Chaldea and Assyria; and it is often restricted to Judæa only.
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Earth
is used for that gross element which sustains and nourishes us by producing plants and fruits; for the continent as distinguished from the sea, "God called the dry land earth," Genesis 1:10 ; for the terraqueous globe, and its contents, men, animals, plants, metals, waters, &c, "The earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof," Psalms 24:1 ; for the inhabitants of the earth, or continent, "The whole earth was of one language," Genesis 11:1 ; for Judea, or the whole empire of Chaldea and Assyria. Thus Cyrus says, Ezra 1:2 , "The Lord God of heaven hath given me all the kingdoms of the earth." The restriction of the term "earth" to Judea is more common in Scripture than is usually supposed; and this acceptation of it has great effect on several passages, in which it ought to be so understood.
Earth in a moral sense is opposed to heaven, and to what is spiritual. "He that is of the earth is earthy, and speaketh of the earth; he that cometh from above is above all." John 3:31 . "If ye then be risen with Christ, set your affections on things above, not on things on the earth," Colossians 3:1 ,
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Division of the Earth
The prophecy of Noah, says Dr. Hales, was uttered long after the deluge. It evidently alludes to a divine decree for the orderly division of the earth among the three primitive families of his sons, because it notices the "tents of Shem" and the "enlargement of Japheth," Genesis 9:20-27 . This decree was probably promulgated about the same time by the venerable patriarch. The prevailing tradition of such a decree for this threefold division of the earth, is intimated both in the Old and New Testament. Moses refers to it, as handed down to the Israelites, "from the days of old, and the years of many generations; as they might learn from their fathers and their elders," and farther, as conveying a special grant of the land of Palestine, to be the lot of the twelve tribes of Israel:—
"When the Most High divided to the nations their settlements, When he separated the sons of Adam,
He assigned the boundaries of the peoples [1] According to the number of the sons of Israel: For the portion of the Lord is his people,
Jacob is the lot of his inheritance,"
Deuteronomy 32:7-9 .
And this furnishes an additional proof of the justice of the expulsion of the Canaanites, as usurpers, by the Israelites, the rightful possessors of the land of Palestine, under Moses, Joshua, and their successors, when the original grant was renewed to Abraham, Genesis 15:13-21 . And the knowledge of this divine decree may satisfactorily account for the panic terror with which the devoted nations of Canaan were struck at the miraculous passage of the Red Sea by the Israelites, and approach to their confines, so finely described by Moses:—
"The nations shall hear [2] and tremble, Sorrow shall seize the inhabitants of Palestine. Then shall the dukes of Edom be amazed, Dismay shall possess the princes of Moab,
The inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away: Fear and terror shall fall upon them,
By the greatness of thine arm they shall be petrified, Till thy people pass over [3] O Lord,
Till the people pass over, whom thou hast redeemed."
Exodus 15:14-16 .
St. Paul, also, addressing the Athenians, refers to the same decree, as a well-known tradition in the Heathen world: "God made of one blood every nation of men to dwell upon the whole face of the earth; having appointed the predetermined seasons and boundaries of their dwellings," Acts 17:26 . Here he represents mankind as all of "one blood," race, or stock, "the sons of Adam" and of Noah in succession; and the seasons and the boundaries of their respective settlements, as previously regulated by the divine appointment. And this was conformable to their own geographical allegory; that Chronus, the god of time, or Saturn, divided the universe among his three sons, allotting the heaven to Jupiter, the sea to Neptune, and hell to Pluto. But Chronus represented Noah, who divided the world among his three sons, allotting the upper regions of the north to Japheth, the maritime or middle regions to Shem, and the lower regions of the south to Ham. According to the Armenian tradition recorded by Abulfaragi, Noah distributed the habitable earth from north to south between his sons, and gave to Ham the region of the blacks, to Shem the region of the tawny, fuscorum, and to Japheth the region of the ruddy, rubrorum: and he dates the actual division of the earth in the hundred and fortieth year of Peleg, B.C. 2614, or five hundred and forty-one years after the deluge, and one hundred and ninety-one years after the death of Noah, in the following order:—"To the sons of Shem was allotted the middle of the earth, namely, Palestine, Syria, Assyria, Samaria, Singar, [4] Babel, [5] Persia, and Hegiaz; [6] to the sons of Ham, Teimen, [7] Africa, Nigritia, Egypt, Nubia, Ethiopia, Scindia, and India; [8] to the sons of Japheth, also, Garbia, [9] Spain, France, the countries of the Greeks, Sclavonians, Bulgarians, Turks, and Armenians." In this curious and valuable geographical chart, Armenia, the cradle of the human race, was allotted to Japheth, by right of primogeniture; and Samaria and Babel to the sons of Shem; the usurpation of these regions, therefore, by Nimrod, and of Palestine by Canaan, was in violation of the divine decree. Though the migration of the primitive families began at this time, B.C. 2614, or about five hundred and forty-one years after the deluge, it was a length of time before they all reached their respective destinations. The "seasons," as well as the "boundaries" of their respective settlements were equally the appointment of God; the nearer countries to the original settlement being planted first, and the remoter in succession. These primitive settlements seem to have been scattered and detached from each other according to local convenience. Even so late as the tenth generation after the flood in Abraham's days, there were considerable tracts of land in Palestine unappropriated, on which he and his nephew, Lot, freely pastured their cattle without hinderance or molestation. That country was not fully peopled till the fourth generation after, at the exode of the Israelites from Egypt. And Herodotus represents Scythia as an uninhabited desert, until Targitorus planted the first colony there, about a thousand years, at most, before Darius Hystaspes invaded Scythia, or about B.C. 1508. The orderly settlements of the three primitive families are recorded in that most venerable and valuable geographical chart, the tenth chapter of Genesis, in which it is curious to observe how long the names of the first settlers have been preserved among their descendants, even down to the present day:—
1. Japheth, the eldest son of Noah, Genesis 10:21 , and his family, are first noticed, Genesis 10:2-5 . The name of the patriarch himself was preserved among his Grecian descendants, in the proverb, του ‘Ιαπετου πρεσβυτερος , older than Japetus, denoting the remotest antiquity. The radical part of the word ‘Ιαπετ , evidently expresses Japheth.
(1.) Gomer, his eldest son, was the father of the Gomerians. These, spreading from the regions north of Armenia and Bactriana, Ezekiel 38:6 , extended themselves westward over nearly the whole continent of Europe; still retaining their paternal denomination, with some slight variation, as Cimmerians, in Asia; Cimbri and Umbri, in Gaul and Italy; and Cymri, Cambri, and Cumbri, in Wales and Cumberland at the present day. They are also identified by ancient authors with the Galatae of Asia Minor, the Gaels, Gauls, and Celtae, of Europe, who likewise spread from the Euxine Sea, to the Western Ocean; and from the Baltic to Italy southward, and first planted the British Isles. Josephus remarks, that the Galatae were called Γομαρεις , Gomariani, from their ancestor Gomar. See the numerous authorities adduced in support of the identity of the Gomerians and Celts, by that learned and ingenious antiquary, Faber, in his "Origin of Pagan Idolatry." Of Gomer's sons, Ashkenaz appears to have settled on the coasts of the Euxine Sea, which from him seems to have received its primary denomination of Αξενος , Axenus, nearly resembling Ashkenaz; but forgetting its etymology in process of time, the Greeks considered it as a compound term in their own language, Α - ξενος , signifying inhospitable; and thence metamorphosed it into Ευ - ξενος , Eu-xenus, "very hospitable." His precise settlement is represented in Scripture as contiguous to Armenia, westward; for the kingdoms of Ararat, Minni, and Ashkenaz, are noticed together; Jeremiah 51:27 . Riphat, the second son of Gomer, seems to have given name to the Riphean mountains of the north of Asia; and Togarmah, the third son, may be traced in the Trocmi of Strabo, the Trogmi of Cicero, and Trogmades of the council of Chalcedon, inhabiting the confines of Pontus and Cappadocia.
(2.) Magog, Tubal, and Mesech, sons of Japhet, are noticed together by Ezekiel, as settled in the north, Ezekiel 38:2 ; Ezekiel 38:14-15 . And as the ancestors of the numerous Sclavonic and Tartar tribes, the first may be traced in the Mongogians, Monguls, and Moguls; the second, in the Tobolski, of Siberia; and the third, Mesech, or Mosoc, in the Moschici, Moscow, and Muscovites.
(3.) Madai was the father of the Medes, who are repeatedly so denominated in Scripture, 2 Kings 17:6 ; Isaiah 13:17 ; Jeremiah 51:11 ; Daniel 5:28 , &c.
(4.) From Javan was descended the Javanians, or ‘Ιαονες of the Greeks, and the Yavanas of the Hindus. Greece itself is called Javan by Daniel 11:2 ; and the people ‘Ιαονες by Homer in his "Iliad." These aboriginal ‘Ιαονες of Greece are not to be confounded, as is usually the case, with the later Ιωνες who invaded and subdued the Javanian territories, and were of a different stock. The accurate Pausanias states, that the name of Ιωνες , was comparatively modern, while that of ‘Ιαονες is acknowledged to have been the primitive title of the barbarians who were subdued by the Ιωνες . Strabo remarks that Attica was formerly called both Ionia and Ias, or Ian; while Herodotus asserts, that the Athenians were not willing to be called Ιωνες ; and he derives the name from Ιων , the son of Zuth, descended from Deucalion or Noah. And this Ion is said by Eusebius to have been the ringleader in the building of the tower of Babel, and the first introducer of idol worship, and Sabianism, or adoration of the sun, moon, and stars. This would identify Ion with Nimrod. And the Ionians appear to have been composed of the later colonists, the Palli, Pelasgi, or roving tribes from Asia, Phenicia, and Egypt, who, according to Herodotus, first corrupted the simplicity of the primitive religion of Greece, and who, by the Hindus, were called Yonigas, or worshippers of the yoni or dove. This critical distinction between the Iaones and the Iones, the Yavanas, and the Yonigas, we owe to the sagacity of Faber. Of Javan's sons, Elishah and Dodon, may be recognized in Elis and Dodona, the oldest settlements of Greece; Kittim, in the Citium of Macedonia, and Chittim, or maritime coasts of Greece and Italy,
Numbers 24:24 ; and Tarshish, in the Tarsus of Cilicia, and Tartessus of Spain.
2. Ham and his family are next noticed, Genesis 10:6-20 . The name of the patriarch is recorded in the title frequently given to Egypt, "The land of Ham," Psalms 105:23 , &c.
(1.) Of his sons, the first and most celebrated appears to have been Cush, who gave name to the land of Cush, both in Asia and Africa; the former still called Chusistan by the Arabian geographers, and Susiana by the Greeks, and Cusha Dwipa Within, by the Hindus; the other, called Cusha Dwipa Without. And the enterprising Cushim or Cuthim, of Scripture, in Asia and Europe, assumed the title of Getae, Guiths, and Goths; and of Scuths, Scuits, and Scots; and of Sacas, Sacasenas, and Saxons. The original family settlement of Abraham was "Ur of the Chasdim," or Chaldees, Genesis 11:28 , who are repeatedly mentioned in Scripture, Isaiah 13:9 ; Daniel 9:1 , &c. According to Faber's ingenious remark, it may more properly be pronounced Chusdim, signifying Godlike Cushites. It is highly improbable that they were so named from Chesed, Abraham's nephew, Genesis 22:22 , who was a mere boy, if born at all, when Abraham left Ur, and was an obscure individual, never noticed afterward. Of Cush's sons, Seba, Havilah, Sabtah, Sabtacha, and Raamah; and the sons of Raamah, Sheba, and Dedan, seem to have settled in Idumea and Arabia, from the similar names of places there; and of his descendants, Nimrod, the mighty hunter, first founded the kingdom of Babylon, and afterward of Assyria, invading the settlements of the Shemites, contrary to the divine decree. His posterity were probably distinguished by the title of Chusdim, Isaiah 23:13 .
(2.) The second son of Ham was Misr, or Mizraim. He settled in Egypt, whence the Egyptians were universally styled in Scripture, Mizraim, or Mizraites, in the plural form. But the country is denominated in the east, to this day, "the land of Misr;" which, therefore, seems to have been the name of the patriarch himself. The children of Misr, like their father, are denominated in Scripture by the plural number. Of these, the Ludim and Lehabim were probably the Copto-Libyans, Ezekiel 30:5 ; the Naphtuhim occupied the sea coast, which by the Egyptians was called Nephthus; whence, probably, originated the name of the maritime god Neptune. The Pathrusim occupied a part of Lower Egypt, called from them Pathros, Isaiah 11:11 . The Caphtorim and the Casluhim, whose descendants were the Philistim of Palestine, occupied the district which lies between the delta of the Nile and the southern extremity of Palestine, Deuteronomy 2:23 ; Amos 9:7 .
(3.) Phut is merely noticed, without any mention of his family. But the tribes of Phut and Lud are mentioned together, with Cush, or Ethiopia, Jeremiah 46:9 ; Ezekiel 30:5 ; and Jerom notices a district in Libya, called Regio Phutensis, or the land of Phut.
(4.) Canaan has been noticed already; and the original extent of the land of Canaan is carefully marked by Moses. Its western border, along the Mediterranean Sea, extended from Sidon, Southward, to Gaza; its southern border from thence, eastward, to Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboim, the cities of the plain, afterward covered by the Dead Sea, or Asphaltite Lake; its eastern border extending from thence northward, to Laish, Dan, or the springs of the Jordan; and its northern border, from thence to Sidon, westward. Of Canaan's sons, Sidon, the eldest, occupied the north-west corner, and built the town of that name, so early celebrated for her luxury and commerce in Scripture, Judges 18:7 ; 1 Kings 5:6 ; and by Homer, who calls the Sidonians, πολυδαιδαλοι , skilled in many arts. And Tyre, so flourishing afterward, though boasting of her own antiquity, Isaiah 23:7 , is styled, "a daughter of Sidon," or a colony from thence, Isaiah 5:12 . Heth, his second son, and the Hittites, his descendants, appear to have settled in the south, near Hebron, Genesis 23:3-7 ; and next to them, at Jerusalem, the Jebusites, or descendants of Jebus, both remaining in their original settlements till David's days; 2 Samuel 11:3 ; 2 Samuel 5:6-9 . Beyond the Jebusites, were settled the Emorites, or Amorites, Numbers 13:29 , who extended themselves beyond Jordan, and were the most powerful of the Canaanite tribes, Genesis 15:16 ; Numbers 21:21 , until they were destroyed by Moses and Joshua, with the rest of the devoted nations of Canaan's family.
3. Shem and his family are noticed last, Genesis 10:21-30 . His posterity were confined to middle Asia.
(1.) His son Elam appears to have been settled in Elymais, or southern Persia, contiguous to the maritime tract of Chusistan, Daniel 8:2 .
(2.) His son Ashur planted the land thence called Assyria, which soon became a province of the Cushite, or Cuthic empire, founded by Nimrod.
(3.) Arphaxad, through his grandson, Eber, branched out into the two houses of Peleg and Joktan. Peleg probably remained in Chaldea, or southern Babylonia, at the time of the dispersion; for there we find his grandson, Terah, and his family, settled at "Ur of the Chaldees,"
Genesis 11:31 . Of the numerous children of Joktan, it is said by Moses, that "their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, a mount of the east." Faber is inclined to believe that they were the ancestors of the great body of the Hindus, who still retain a lively tradition of the patriarch Shem, Shama, or Sharma; and that the land of Ophir, abounding in gold, so called from one of the sons of Joktan, lay beyond the Indus, eastward.
(4.) Lud was probably the father of the Ludim or Lydians, of Asia Minor; for this people had a tradition that they were descended from Lud or Lydus, according to Josephus.
(5.) The children of Aram planted the fertile country north of Babylonia, called Aram Naharaim, "Aram between the two rivers," the Euphrates and the Tigris, thence called by the Greeks, Mesopotamia, Genesis 24:10 , and Padan Aram, the level country of Aram, Genesis 25:20 . This country of Aram is frequently rendered Syria in Scripture, Judges 10:6 ; Hosea 12:12 , &c; which is not to be confounded with Palestine Syria, into which they afterward spread themselves, still retaining their original name of Αριμοι , or Arameans, noticed by Homer in his "Iliad."
4. Upon this distribution of Noah's posterity we shall only observe, that the Deity presided ever all their counsels and deliberations, and that he guided and settled all mankind according to the dictates of his all-comprehending wisdom and benevolence. To this purpose, the ancients themselves, according to Pindar, retained some idea that the dispersion of men was not the effect of chance, but that they had been settled in different countries by the appointment of Providence, Genesis 11:8-9 ; Deuteronomy 22:8 . This dispersion, and that confusion of languages with which it originated, was intended, by the counsel of an all-wise Providence, to counteract and defeat the scheme which had been projected by the descendants of Noah, for maintaining their union, implied in their proposing to make themselves a name, שם , which Schultens, in Job 1:1 , derives from the Arabic verb שמה , or שמא to be high elevated, or eminent. By this scheme, which seems to have been a project of state policy, for keeping all men together under the present chiefs and their successors, a great part of the earth must, for a long time, have been uninhabited, and overrun with wild beasts. The bad effects which this project would have had upon the minds, the morals, and religion of mankind, was, probably, the chief reason why God interposed to frustrate it as soon as it was formed. It had manifestly a direct tendency to tyranny, oppression, and slavery. Whereas in forming several independent governments by a small body of men, the ends of government, and the security of liberty and property, would be much better attended to, and more firmly established; which, in fact, was really the case; if we may judge of the rest by the constitution of one of the most eminent, the kingdom of Egypt, Genesis 47:15-27 . The Egyptians were masters of their persons and property, till they sold them to Pharaoh for bread; and then their servitude amounted to no more than the fifth part of the produce of the country, as an annual tax payable to the king. By this event, considered as a wise dispensation of Providence, bounds were set to the contagion of wickedness; evil example was confined, and could not extend its influence beyond the limits of one country; nor could wicked projects be carried on, with universal concurrence, by many small colonies, separated by the natural boundaries of mountains, rivers, barren deserts, and seas, and hindered from associating together by a variety of languages, unintelligible to each other. Moreover, in this dispersed state, they could, whenever God pleased, be made reciprocal checks upon each other, by invasions and wars, which would weaken the power, and humble the pride, of corrupt and vicious communities. This dispensation was, therefore, properly calculated to prevent a second universal degeneracy; God dealing in it with men as rational agents, and adapting his scheme to their state and circumstances.

(n.) The world, considered as lying between heaven and hell.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Earth
EARTH in OT usually stands for one or other of the Heb. words ’eretz and ’adâmâh . In AV [1] these are rendered indiscriminately ‘earth’ and ‘ ground ,’ but RV [2] distinguishes them by using, to some extent, ‘earth’ for the former, and ‘ground’ for the latter. Both words have a wide range of meanings, some of which they possess in common, while others are peculiar to each. Thus ’eretz denotes: ( a ) earth as opposed to heaven ( Genesis 1:1 ), and ( b ) dry land as opposed to sea. ( Genesis 1:20 ). ’adâmâh is specially used: ( a ) for earth as a specific substance ( Genesis 2:7 , 2 Kings 5:17 ); and ( b ) for the surface of the ground, in such phrases as ‘face of the earth.’ Both words are employed to describe: ( a ) the soil from which plants grow, ’adâmâh being the more common term in this sense; ( b ) the whole earth with its inhabitants, for which, however, ’adâmâh is but rarely used; and ( c ) a land or country, this also being usually expressed by ’eretz . In one or two cases it is doubtful in which of the two last senses ’eretz is to be taken, e.g. Jeremiah 22:29 (EV [3] ‘earth,’ RVm [4] ‘land’).
In NT the Gr. words for ‘earth’ are gç and oikoumenç , the former having practically all the variety of meanings mentioned above, while the latter denotes specially the whole inhabited earth, and is once used ( Hebrews 2:5 ) in a still wider sense for the universe of the future. See, further, art. World.

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Salt of the Earth
Expression used in a similitude which is given in slightly different forms and under diverse circumstances by three Evangelists (Matthew 5; Mark 9; Luke 14). Much of the salt used in Palestine is obtained by evaporation of the Dead Sea waters, not perfectly pure and hence liable to corruption and loss of savor. Once corrupted it is fit only to be thrown out in the street or on the refuse piles within or at the edge of Eastern villages. By their vocation the Apostles and their successors are the salt of the earth, i.e.,by their teaching and example they must keep men measuring up to the principles of right living laid down by Christ. In Saint Mark this parable is a rebuke for their quarrels over precedence; in Saint Matthew and Saint Luke it is a warning to remain true to their vocation by correspondence to Christ's teaching and grace, which alone will give them the authority and spiritual force necessary to imbue others with the true spirit of Jesus.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Earth
In both Hebrew and Greek the same word is used to denote the earth as a whole, and a particular land. Only the context can enable us to decide in which of these senses it is to be taken in a given passage.
Thus in Matthew 27:45 we might, so far as the original word is concerned, render either "there was darkness over all the land," or over all the earth. The expression "all the earth" is sometimes used hyperbolically for a large portion of it, Ezra 1:2 . The word is used of the whole world, etc. In a moral sense, earthly is opposed to what is heavenly, spiritual and holy, John 3:31 1 Corinthians 15:47 Colossians 3:2 James 3:15 . "The lower parts of the earth," means the unseen world of the dead, Psalm 63:9 Isaiah 44:23 Ephesians 4:9 .
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Slime of the Earth
Term used in Holy Scripture in the sense of the material of which man's body is formed, found in the Reims-Douay Version (Genesis 2; Tobias 8). In Tobias it is the translation of a Latin variant, not found in the other ancient texts. The Latin Vulgate renders the Hebrew 'aphar (Genesis 2) as limus; the Reims-Douay Version follows the Vulgate. This is evidently an error of translation; the meaning of 'aphar is dust, and it is thus rendered in all the subsequent places of the Reims-Douay version.

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Earth
Several Hebrew words are translated 'earth,' but they are not employed to distinguish the earth as a sphere from the surface of the earth, or ground; nor to discriminate between the general surface of the earth, and any portion of it as 'land,' or the soil of the earth. Thus adamah generally refers to the earth as ground or soil: the rain falleth on 'the earth,' Genesis 7:4 ; 'an altar of earth,' Exodus 20:24 ; man 'returneth to his earth,' Psalm 146:4 ; but it often refers to the 'land ' of Israel: 'prolong your days upon the land;' 'dwell in the land;' 'live in the land;' 'the land which I sware unto their fathers.' Deuteronomy 30:18,20 ; Deuteronomy 31:13,20 .
Another word, erets, has wider significations: sometimes the earth as a sphere: "God created the heaven and the earth," Genesis 1:1 ; He "hangeth the earth upon nothing," Job 26:7 : but in other places it is restricted to districts: "out of that land went forth Asshur;" "after their tongues in their countries;" "in his days was the earth divided." Genesis 10:11,20,25 .
In the N.T. the word γῆ is employed for all the above various significations. It is used symbolically as a characteristic of man according to his natural estate. "He that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth." John 3:31 .
From the above examples it will be seen that in some instances where the A.V. has 'earth,' the 'land' only, or the land of Canaan, may be intended; the context must be studied in each case.
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Earth
The term is used in two widely-different senses: (1) for the material of which the earth's surface is composed; (2) as the name of the planet on which man dwells. The Hebrew language discriminates between these two by the use of separate terms, adamah for the former, erets for the latter.
Adamah is the earth in the sense of soil or ground, particularly as being susceptible of cultivation. ( Genesis 2:7 )
Erets is applied in a more or less extended sense-- (1) to the whole world, ( Genesis 1:1 ) (2) to land as opposed to sea, (Genesis 1:10 ) (3) to a country, (Genesis 21:32 ) (4) to a plot of ground, (Genesis 23:15 ) and (5) to the ground on which a man stands. (Genesis 33:3 ) The two former senses alone concern us, the fairest involving an inquiry into the opinions of the Hebrews on cosmogony, the second on geography.
cosmogony. -- (1) The Hebrew cosmogony is based upon the leading principle that the universe exists, not independently of God, nor yet co-existent with God, nor yet in opposition to him as a hostile element, but dependently upon him, subsequently to him and in subjection to him. (2) Creation was regarded as a progressive work --a gradual development from the inferior to the superior orders of things.
Geography. --There seems to be traces of the same ideas as prevailed among the Greeks, that the world was a disk, ( Isaiah 40:22 ) bordered by the ocean, with Jerusalem as its centre, like Delphi as the navel, or, according to another view, the highest point of the world. As to the size of the earth, the Hebrews had but a very indefinite notion.

The word Earth is also spoken of by way of a natural and moral sense, Hence, in opposition to spirit, the Scripture describes the first man as of the Earth, Earthy; while the second man is declared to be, the Lord from heaven.

So when feigned gospellers honor Christ our Head, sitting in heaven, and oppress his members on Earth, the Head shall speak for the feet that smart, and say, Why treadest thou on me?' Paul had a zeal toward God, but he did tread upon Christ's feet on Earth, for whom the Head crieth forth of heaven, 'Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?' Although Christ sitteth on the right hand of his Father, yet lieth he on Earth; he suffereth all calamities here on Earth, he is many times evil entreated here on Earth
Earth - A distinct term expresses the material of which the Earth consists damaah , the "ground," "soil," from whence Adam was named (Genesis 2:7), his body coming from and returning to the Earth (Genesis 3:19), a different word "dust" (Job 10:9; Ecclesiastes 12:7). Naaman desired to have two mules' burden of Earth of the Holy Land ('Εretz Ιsrael ), whether for an altar or other sacred purpose (Exodus 20:24), a half-paganish nation that God would accept devotions in connection with that soil rather than with any other. ...
In James 5:17 it is translated: "it rained not on the land (of Israel)"; for the drought was a judgment, not on the whole Earth, but on Israel; compare Luke 4:25. So in Luke 23:44 "there was darkness over all the land," not "all the Earth"; compare Matthew 27:45. In 1 Corinthians 15:47-49, "the first man is of the Earth, Earthy," contrasted with "the Lord from heaven" and "the heavenly," the term is choikos , not merely Earthly, i. born upon Earth, but "earthy," literally, "of heaped clay," answering to the surface "dust" in the Old Testament of which man is made; not merely terrestrial, but terrene, therefore, transitory
Inhabiters of the Earth - A designation of those mentioned in the Revelation, who, notwithstanding the successive judgements that fall upon them, cling to the Earth as settlers there, and against whom 'woe, woe, woe' is pronounced. During Christ's rejection from the Earth God's call has been to heaven, hence to have the character of dwelling on Earth is a denial of the heavenly calling
Earth - In Genesis 9:20 "husbandman" is literally "man of the ground or Earth. " Altars were to be built of Earth ( Exodus 20:24 ). Naaman asked for two mules' burden of Earth (2 Kings 5:17 ), under the superstitious notion that Jehovah, like the gods of the heathen, could be acceptably worshipped only on his own soil. Erets Also denotes a country (21:32); a plot of ground (23:15); the ground on which a man stands (33:3); the inhabitants of the Earth (6:1; 11:1); all the world except Israel ( 2 Chronicles 13:9 ). In the New Testament "the Earth" denotes the land of Judea (Matthew 23:35 ); also things carnal in contrast with things heavenly (John 3:31 ; Colossians 3:1,2 )

Heavens, New - It often is connected with the concept of a new Earth. ...
The promise of a re-creation of the heavens and Earth arose because of human sin and God's subsequent curse (Genesis 3:17 ). The biblical hope for mankind is tied to the conviction that persons cannot be completely set free from the power of sin apart from the redemption of the created order—earth as well as the heavens. ...
The nature of the “new heavens and Earth” is variously described in the Bible. In Hebrews 12:28 the new heaven and Earth are described as a “kingdom which cannot be moved. ” This new heaven and Earth will last forever ( Isaiah 66:22 ). ...
In Revelation, the nature of the new heaven and Earth stands in marked contrast to the old heaven and Earth. Purity (Revelation 21:27 ) and freedom from the wrath of God (Revelation 22:3 ) are marks of the new heaven and Earth. First, the new heavens and Earth are created immediately after the second coming of Christ. Some believe that the creation of the new heavens and Earth will occur immediately after the “great white throne” judgment. Some premillennialists associate the creation of the new heavens and Earth with the beginning of the thousand year millennial reign of Christ. A second viewpoint commonly held by many premillennialists is that the new heaven and new Earth are created at the end of the millennial reign of Christ

Hebrews 8:1); (8) the Earth in contrast with the underworld (Philippians 2:10, Revelation 5:3; Revelation 5:13); (9) the Earth with a moral connotation, as the sphere of a merely worldly life to which is opposed the heavenly life with Christ in God (Colossians 3:2; Colossians 3:5). ...
Earthen (ὀστράκινος, fr. word occurs twice in the NT, but in English Version is only once translated ‘earthen. ’ In 2 Timothy 2:20 the rendering is ‘of Earth,’ and the reference is simply to the material of the Earthen vessels in contrast with those of gold and silver and wood. In 2 Corinthians 4:7, where ‘earthen’ is used, there appears to be a suggestion not only of the meanness of the Earthen vessels in contrast with the preciousness of the treasure they contain, but of their frailty in contrast with the exceeding greatness of the Divine power of God who uses them as His instruments. ...

Earthly (ἐπίγειος, ‘upon the Earth,’ ‘terrestrial,’ 2 Corinthians 5:1, Philippians 3:19, James 3:15). -Outside of the Fourth Gospel ‘earthly’ occurs only 3 times in the NT, but ἐπίγειος is found also in 1 Corinthians 15:40, where English Version renders ‘terrestrial,’ and Philippians 2:10, where English Version gives ‘things on Earth. ’ In all these passages there is a contrast of the Earthly with the heavenly. In Philippians 2:10, while ‘things on Earth’ are contrasted with ‘things in heaven’ the meaning of ἐπίγειος itself is that suggested by (5), the ‘things on Earth’ being the inhabitants of the whole world; and there is a further contrast with the ‘things under the Earth,’ the inhabitants of the under world (cf
Premillennialism - It says that there is a future millennium (1000 years) where Christ will rule and reign over the Earth.

Earth, Land - Earth and land are the principle meanings of the Hebrew word erets. Earth and land differ in the degree of space involved: “earth” encompasses the whole planet; “land” designates a limited area. ...
Erets as Entire Created Sphere or Material Realm In Genesis 1:1,2 the Earth ( erets ) is created with the heavens. However, the sentence structure stresses the Earth more than the heavens. Creation brought to the Earth both form and content. Light made the Earth's form and content visible. An Earth that was exceedingly good came from God's creation (Genesis 1:31 ). ...
Other parts of the Bible also speak of God creating the Earth (Isaiah 40:28 ; Isaiah 45:12 ). The Bible stresses God's personal involvement: “Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the Earth” (Isaiah 48:13 ). The whole Earth is the result of God's creative activity. Biblical writers distinguished the heavens from the waters beneath it: Graven images were forbidden of “any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the Earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the Earth” (Deuteronomy 5:8 ). ...
Erets as Specific Territory or Land Interpreters and translators must decide whether erets means the whole Earth or a specific land. Naaman, however, said of Elisha's God, “I know that there is no God in all the Earth (erets ), but in Israel” (2 Kings 5:15 ). The context indicates that the same word in one verse means “land” and in another verse means the more comprehensive “earth. ”...
The territory of Babylon is called “the land of the Chaldeans” (Jeremiah 50:1 ,Jeremiah 50:1,50:8 ,Jeremiah 50:8,50:25 ); yet in Jeremiah 50:23 , Babylon's great military power is called “the hammer of the whole Earth. ” Again, within one chapter, erets means both “land” and “earth. ...
Erets as What Is Beneath the Earth or Land—the Underworld The prophet Ezekiel wrote literally of “the land of lowest places” ( Ezekiel 26:20 ). ” The NIV uses “the Earth below. David saw those who sought to destroy him as being judged by God and as going down to “the lower parts of the Earth” (Psalm 63:9 ). ...
In the Old Testament, the heavenly realm, the Earthly realm, and the sub-earthly realm all described the place of God and angels, the place of people now alive, and the place of those who have died. In both the Old and New Testaments, Earthly decisions and actions influenced future destiny. The Lord of heaven and Earth is also the Lord of individual lands. All of the Earth as well as specific parts should be used to promote a good life for the inhabitants
Flood - The scripture account of It says, "And I, behold, I do bring a flood of waters upon the Earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; every thing that is in the Earth shall die. And every living thing was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping things, and fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the Earth; and Noah only was left, and they that were with him in the ark. The highest mountains in every part of the Earth furnish proofs that the sea has spread over them, shells, skeletons of fish and sea monsters being found on them. It is well to bear in mind that God has said, "I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of the flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the Earth. And also has said, "The world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: but the heavens that now are, and the Earth, by the same word have been stored up for fire, being reserved against the day of judgment,. in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall be dissolved with fervent heat, and the Earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up. There is an abundance of material stored up in the Earth and in the atmosphere to produce such a combustion at any moment
Lead (Metal) - GOD measures and weighs every part of the Earth.

Christ comes upon Earth for the redemption of his people—But where shall he make his appearance? Surely as near the centre as possible. It is so then, Jesus shall appear, to fulfil all righteousness, in that part which is the solid globe of the Earth, that here to this centre all the ends of the Earth may have their views directed. Hence the Psalmist speaking of it, saith, "for God is my king of old, working salvation in the midst of the Earth. " (Psalms 74:12) And hence the Lord Jesus is represented by the Holy Ghost as calling from his throne, in the centre of it, to his redeemed, saying, "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the Earth, for I am God, and there is none else. (Isaiah 28:16) But here the Holy Ghost is speaking of the church of Christ founded in himself; and this foundation of the Lord Jesus is in this holy mountain, the navel, or centre of the Earth. (See Haggai 2:7; Hag 2:9)...
And is there not yet an higher view of the subject, considered as to the glorious persons who are the united source and cause of our salvation? If salvation is wrought out for the church in the middle of the Earth, is not the Son of God, by whom it was wrought, the middle person of the GODHEAD? And not only so, the middle person of the Holy Three in One who bear record in heaven, but the middle person, the Mediator, between God and man, as the man Christ Jesus? (1 John 5:7; 1 Timothy 2:5) And can the imagination conceive any thing more blessed and suited for the glory and happiness of the church, than that he who is the centre in all these views, should be the centre towards whom all things should move, and in whom all should centre? And hence we read, that when John saw heaven open, he saw Christ as a lamb in the midst of the throne. (Revelation 7:17) Nay, we are told by the Holy Ghost, through the ministry of his servant Paul, (Ephesians 1:10) that the great purpose of redemption is, "that in the dispensation of the fulness of time, he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on Earth, even in him. " So that as in him and from him, and by him, all the blessings of grace now flow, as from a centre, to his redeemed upon Earth, and all glory to his redeemed now and for ever in heaven; so all the enemies of God and his Christ will meet their final overthrow and everlasting destruction from him that is in the midst of the throne, when the Lord of hosts shall "reign in mount Zion, and in Jerusalem, and before his ancients gloriously

Lower, Lowest - A — 1: κατώτερος (Strong's #2737 — Adjective — katoteros — kat-o'-ter-os ) the comparative degree of kato, "beneath," is used in Ephesians 4:9 , of Christ's descent into "the lower parts of the Earth;" two of the various interpretations of this phrase are (1) that the Earth is in view in contrast to heaven, (2) that the region is that of hades, the Sheol of the OT. Moreover, as Westcott says, it is most unlikely that the phrase would be used to describe the Earth

Pillar - Job speaks of the pillars of heaven and the pillars of the Earth, Job 9:6 ; Job 26:11 ; which are strong metaphorical expressions, that suppose the heavens and the Earth to be an edifice raised by the hand of the almighty Creator, and founded upon its basis
Conflagration - Scripture assures us in the general that this Earth in its present form will not be perpetual, but shall come to an end. It farther tells us, that this dissolution of the world shall be by a general conflagration, in which all things upon the face of the Earth shall be destroyed, by which the atmosphere shall also be sensibly affected, as in such a case it necessarily must be, 2 Peter 3:5-7 ; 2 Peter 3:10 ; 2 Peter 3:12 . Hammond strangely supposes, refer to the desolation brought on Judea when destroyed by the Romans, but must refer to the dissolution of the whole Earth. Tachard and others, relates that the Siamese believe that the Earth will at last, be parched up with heat, the mountains melted down, the Earth's whole surface reduced to a level, and then consumed with fire. And the Bramins of Siam do not only hold that the world shall be destroyed by fire, but also that a new Earth shall be made out of the cinders of the old. either by having its intention increased, which again may be effected either by being driven into less space by the encroachments of the superficial cold, or by an increase of the inflammability of the fuel whereon it is fed; or by having the resistance of the imprisoning Earth weakened, which may happen either from the diminution of its matter, by the consumption of its central parts, or by weakening the cohesion of the constituent parts of the mass by the excess of the defect of moisture. Various opinions also are entertained as to the renovation of the Earth after the conflagration. Some suppose that the Earth will not be entirely consumed, but that the matter of which it consists will be fixed, purified, and refined, which they say will be the natural consequence of the action of fire upon it; though it is hard to say what such a purification can do towards fitting it for its intended purpose, for it is certain a mass of crystal or glass would very ill answer the following parts of this hypothesis. They suppose that from these materials thus refined, as from a second chaos, there will by the power of God arise a new creation; and then the face of the Earth, and likewise the atmosphere, will then be so restored, as to resemble what it originally was in the paradisaical state; and consequently to render it a more desirable abode for human creatures than it at present is: and they urge for this purpose the following texts, viz. They suppose that the Earth, thus beautified and improved, shall be inhabited by those who shall inherit the first resurrection, and shall here enjoy a very considerable degree of happiness, though not equal to that which is to succeed the general judgment; which judgment shall, according to them, open when those thousand years are expired, mentioned in Revelation 20:4 . ...
But it seems an invincible objection against this hypothesis, which places the millennium after the conflagration, that the saints inhabiting the Earth after the first resurrection are represented as distressed by the invasion of some wicked enemies, Revelation 20:7-9 . It is probable that the Earth will survive its fiery trial, and become the everlasting abode of righteousness, as part of the holy empire of God; but, seeing the language used in Scripture, and especially in the book of Revelation, is often to be considered as figurative rather than literal, it becomes us to be cautious in our conclusions.

Great Commission, the - Because Christ has been given all authority in heaven and on Earth (Matthew 28:19 ), the Great Commission is to be taken with the utmost seriousness by all of his disciples, "to the very end of the age" (Matthew 28:20 ).

Bartholomew - " "Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these: hereafter (from this time forth, Greek) ye (not merely thou alone, but all My disciples) shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man," the true ladder between Earth and heaven, of which that in Jacob's dream was the type (Genesis 28:12), and upon which angels delight to minister. ...
The "ascending" stands first, because the Lord was now below on Earth, not above, as when Jacob saw Him; and from Him as their center they go up, and to Him they return: the communication between Earth and heaven, closed by sin, is opened by Christ's making Earth His home. His miracles and His teaching and His divine manifestation, of which Bartholomew had just a taste, were a sample and installment of a continually progressing opening of heaven to Earth and Earth to heaven (Revelation 4:1; Acts 7:56; Hebrews 9:8; Hebrews 10:19-20) wherein angels minister to and for Him (Luke 2:9; Luke 2:13; Luke 22:43; Acts 1:10); to be consummated when "the tabernacle of God shall be with men," and "the holy Jerusalem shall descend out of heaven from God" (Revelation 21; 1 Corinthians 13:12)

Judgment - It is in reference to this solemn period that the Apostle Peter says, "The heavens and the Earth which now exist are by the word of God reserved in store unto fire, against the day of judgment, and perdition of ungodly men," 2 Peter 3:7 . In Joel 2:10 , the invasion of Judea by foreign armies is thus foretold: "The Earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble; the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining. " And in Joel 2:30-31 , the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans is thus predicted: "I will show wonders in the heavens and in the Earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke. " God, threatening the Jews, is introduced saying, "In that day I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the Earth in the clear day," Amos 8:9 . The overthrow of Judaism and Heathenism is thus foretold: "Yet once and I will shake the heavens and the Earth, and the sea and the dry land," Haggai 2:6 . They mention only the rolling of the heavens together as a scroll the obscuring of the light of the sun and of the moon, the shaking of the heavens and the Earth, and the falling down of the stars: whereas Peter speaks of the utter destruction of all the parts of this mundane system by fire. ...
Not so the apostolic phraseology: for the burning of the heavens, or atmosphere, and its passing away with a great noise; and the burning of the Earth and the works thereon, together with the burning and melting of the elements, that is, the constituent parts of which this terraqueous globe is composed; are all things possible, and therefore may be literally understood; while the things mentioned by the prophets can only be taken figuratively. He begins with an account of the perishing of the old world, to demonstrate against the scoffers the possibility of the perishing of the present heavens and Earth. But that example would not have suited his purpose; unless, by the burning of the present heavens and Earth, he had meant the destruction of the material fabric. The circumstance of the present heavens and Earth being treasured up and kept, ever since the first deluge, from all after deluges, in order to their being destroyed by fire at the day of judgment, shows, we think, that the Apostle is speaking of a real, and not of a metaphorical, destruction of the heavens and Earth. This appears, likewise, from the Apostle's foretelling that, after the present heavens and Earth are burned, new heavens and a new Earth are to appear, in which the righteous are forever to dwell. The time fixed by the Apostle for the burning of the heavens and the Earth, namely, the day of judgment and punishment of ungodly men, shows that the Apostle is speaking, not of the destruction of a single city or nation during the subsistence of the world, but of the Earth itself, with all the wicked who have dwelt thereon. ...
Then shall come indeed an awful day; a day to which all that have preceded it are intended to be subservient; when the Lord shall appear in the united splendour of creating, of governing, and of judicial majesty, to finish his purposes respecting man and Earth, and to pronounce the final, irreversible sentence, "It is done!" Revelation 21:6 . Nothing of terror or magnificence hitherto beheld,—no glory of the rising sun after a night of darkness and of storm,—no convulsions of the Earth,—no wide irruption of waters,—no flaming comet dragging its burning train over half the heaven, can convey to us an adequate conception of that day of terrible brightness and irresistible devastation. "The heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat; the Earth also, and the works that are therein, shall be burned up," 2 Peter 3:10 . Earth and sea shall give up the dead which are in them

Kettle - ...

New Heavens And a New Earth - The idea of new heavens and a new Earth is explicitly noted in Isaiah 65:17 ; 66:22 ; 2 pe 3:13 ; and Revelation 21:1 . The Old Testament has no term that directly translates as "universe"; the phrase "heavens and Earth" was the Hebrew way of referring to the universe they knew. The new heavens and Earth in Revelation 21 is the consummation of many new things. ...
The primary new heavens and new Earth texts yield a variety of contexts while still focusing upon the future restoration. The ethical dimension of Christian living is intensified by the prospect of the future renovation of heaven and Earth. The final clause of 3:13 also highlights this nuance by noting that it will be an Earth in which righteousness dwells. It is interesting that the imaging of eternity has humankind on a restored Earth, not in God's heavenly realm. Human history climaxes where it all began: on the Earth. ...
The manner in which the new heavens and Earth come into existence is a matter of debate among biblical scholars. Therefore, the question of the nature of bringing the new heavens and Earth into existence is in regard to whether the new creation comes into existence by means of renewal (a renovation of the old) or replacement (a totally new act of creation). Second Peter 3:12b-13 is viewed as a purging of the old heaven and Earth and forming it into the new
Heaven - The part of God's creation above the Earth and the waters including “air” and “space” and serving as home for God and His heavenly creatures. ” Biblical writers joined their contemporaries in describing the universe as it appeared to the human eye: heavens above, Earth beneath, and waters around and beneath the Earth. This partition has windows or sluice gates with which God sends rain to irrigate or water the Earth (Genesis 7:11 ). “Heaven” thus becomes the curtain of God's tent, separating His dwelling place from that of humanity on Earth (Psalm 104:2 ; Isaiah 40:22 ). ...
Hebrew does not employ a term for “air” or “space” between heaven and Earth. Even Absalom hanging by his hair from a tree limb was “between heaven and Earth” (2 Samuel 18:9 ; compare 1 Chronicles 21:16 ; Ezekiel 8:3 ). ...
Heaven and Earth thus comprehend the entire universe and all its constituents (Jeremiah 23:24 ), but God fills all these and more so that no one can hide from Him (compare 1 Kings 8:27-30 ; Isaiah 66:1 ). ...
As God's dwelling place, heaven is not a divine haven where God can isolate Himself from Earth. A new heaven and new Earth will appear (Isaiah 65:17 ; Isaiah 66:22 ). It holds out the tantalizing examples of men who left Earth and were taken up to heaven (Genesis 5:24 ; 2 Kings 2:11 ). ...
New Testament In the New Testament, the primary Greek word translated “heaven” describes heaven as being above the Earth, although no New Testament passage gives complete instructions regarding the location or geography of heaven. ...
The New Testament affirms that God created heaven (Acts 4:24 ), that heaven and Earth stand under God's lordship (Matthew 11:25 ), and that heaven is the dwelling place of God (Matthew 6:9 )
World - When biblical writers refer to the world, however, they usually mean the Earth itself, not including sun, moon, and stars. No clear Old Testament references appear to the world as a planet, although Isaiah 40:22 , "the circle of the Earth, " is suggestive to some. Many Old Testament uses of world or Earth (eres, in poetry sometimes tebel [ Genesis 1:1 ) or an expansion of that expression (Exodus 20:11 ; Nehemiah 9:6 ). Because God is Creator and Lord of the Earth, it holds only secondary value; a believer must not swear by it (Matthew 5:34-35 ) or accumulate treasure on it (Matthew 6:19 ). At the end God's angels will gather his chosen ones "from the ends of Earth to the ends of heaven" (Mark 13:27 ; NRSV ). Until that time the Earth is the arena of God's activity through his people. Christians are to witness to Jesus "to the ends of the Earth" (Acts 1:8 ). The human world includes dry land where people can live, the inhabited Earth where they do live, and by metonymy, the people who live there. Much of this dry land makes up the inhabited Earth. The inhabited Earth was created with delight by God's wisdom (Proverbs 8:27-31 ). ...
The people of the world are called simply the "world" or the "earth" occasionally in the Old Testament and frequently in the New Testament. The Son of Man "has authority on the Earth, " authority over the people of the world (Matthew 9:6 ; parallels Mark 2:10 ; Luke 5:24 ). Believers by their faith must "overcome the world" (1 John 5:4-5 ), killing whatever belongs to their "earthly nature" (Colossians 3:5 ) and denying "worldly passions" (Titus 2:12 ). The believer may look forward to the new world, "a new heaven and a new Earth, the home of righteousness" (2 Peter 3:13 ; cf

In creation water covered the chaotic depths of the Earth (Genesis 1:2 , where “deep” combines the physical meaning of lowest places on Earth and Earth's interior with the emotional meanings of the dark abode of the dead and the uncharted, feared depths of the oceans

Twilight - The faint light which is reflected upon the Earth after sunset and before sunrise crepuscular light
Deluge - The flood which overflowed and destroyed the Earth. The apparent impossibility of accounting for the quantity of water necessary to overflow the whole Earth to such a depth as it is said to have been. God declared to Noah that he was resolved to destroy every thing that had breath under heaven, or had life on the Earth, by a flood of waters; such was the threatening, such was the execution. the waters, Moses assures us, covered the whole Earth, buried all the mountains; every thing perished therein that had life, excepting Noah and those with him in the ark. ...
If the waters had only overflowed the neighbourhood of the Euphrates and the Tigris, they could not be fifteen cubits above the highest mountains; there was no rising that height but they must spread themselves, by the laws of gravity, over the rest of the Earth; unless perhaps they had been retained there by a miracle; in that case, Moses, no doubt, would have related the miracle, as he did that of the waters of the Red Sea, &c. Burnet supposes the primitive Earth to have been no more than a crust investing the water contained in the ocean; and in the central abyss which he and others suppose to exist in the bowels of the Earth at the time of the flood, this outward crust broke in a thousand pieces, and sunk down among the water, which thus spouted up in vast cataracts, and overflowed the whole surface. ...
Others, supposing a sufficient fund of water in the sea or abyss, think that the shifting of the Earth's centre of gravity drew after it the water out of the channel, and overwhelmed the several parts of the Earth successively. Let us be satisfied with the sources which Moses gives us, namely, the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the waters rushed out from the hidden abyss of the bowels of the Earth, and the clouds poured down their rain incessantly

Trench - ) To fortify by cutting a ditch, and raising a rampart or breastwork with the Earth thrown out of the ditch; to intrench. ) A long, narrow cut in the Earth; a ditch; as, a trench for draining land
Prosperity: Evils of - Prosperity long continued breeds a plague of dust even more injurious, for it almost blinds the spirit and insinuates itself into the soul; a shower or two of grief proves a mighty blessing, for it deprives the things of Earth of somewhat of their smothering power. A Christian full of worldly care is in the same condition, and had need look to it lest he be choked with Earth

Bow - God, after the flood, took the rainbow, previously but a natural object of sight shining beautifully in the sky, when the sun's rays are refracted through failing rain at different angles and so produce different prismatic colors, and elevated it to spiritual significance, to be to Noah and the world the sign of His love and pledge of His sparing mercy, that He would no more destroy the Earth with waters. The complete circle typifies God's perfection and eternity, not broken into a half, as the Earthly rainbow. ...
As the rainbow was reflected on the waters of the world's ruin, and is seen only when a cloud is over the Earth, so another deluge of fire shall precede the new heavens and Earth" granted to redeemed man, as the Earth after the flood was restored to Noah

Gog - ...
The land of unwalled villages, and the people that dwell in the midst of the land, or as the margin of the Bible hath it, the navel of the land, can mean no other than Jerusalem, supposed to be the centre of the Earth; and, therefore, the sea that bounds the borders in these parts very properly called the Mediterranean. And let the reader judge for himself how suitable it was, and proper, that when the Lord Jesus came on Earth to do away the sin and guilt of all nations, the solemn transaction of his "one all-sufficient sacrifice and obedience unto death" should be set forth in the center of the Earth, that like the sun in the midway of the heavens which illumines both east and west; so Christ, the sun of righteousness, might extend the efficacy of his light, and life, and warmth in every direction to his people; and his blood, as from the high altar of his own divine nature, flowing down, might wash away, from the morning of creation to the end of time, the whole of human transgression
Eve - (Genesis 2:23) There is a very great beauty and wisdom in the contrivance, as well as grace and favour in the Lord's ordination in peopling the Earth. But as both the man and the woman are equally involved in sin, in the redemption for both the Lord will make a new thing in the Earth, and a woman shall compass a man. (Jeremiah 31:22) The man of the Earth, therefore, Adam and all his race, shall have no hand in this generation; yea, the womb of the woman only shall be no more than but for the deposit of this Holy Thing
Hyperbole - So a great quantity or number is commonly expressed by the "sand of the sea," the "dust of the Earth," and the "stars of heaven," Genesis 13:16 ; Genesis 41:49 ; Judges 7:12 ; 1 Samuel 13:5 ; 1 Kings 4:29 ; 2 Chronicles 1:9 ; Jeremiah 15:8 ; Hebrews 11:12 . In like manner we meet with "smaller than grasshoppers," Numbers 13:33 , to denote extreme diminutiveness; "swifter than eagles," 2 Samuel 1:23 , to intimate extreme celerity; the "earth trembled," the "mountains melted," Judges 5:4-5 ; the "earth rent," 1 Kings 1:40
Reconciliation - God was in Christ, when Christ was on Earth, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing unto them their trespasses; but now that the love of God has been fully revealed in the cross, the testimony has gone out world wide, beseeching men to be reconciled to God. Reconciliation will extend in result to all things in heaven and on Earth, Colossians 1:20 ; not to things under the Earth (the lost), though these will have to confess that "Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father
Land - Earth, or the solid matter which constitutes the fixed part of the surface of the globe, in distinction from the sea or other waters, which constitute the fluid or movable part. Any small portion of the superficial part of the Earth or ground. Ground soil, or the superficial part of the Earth in respect to its nature or quality as good land poor land moist or dry land
Ground - The surface of land or upper part of the Earth, without reference to the materials which compose it. We apply ground to soil,sand or gravel indifferently, but never apply it to the whole mass of the Earth or globe, nor to any portion of it when removed. We say under ground, but not under Earth and we speak of the globe as divided into land and water, not into ground and water. Yet ground, Earth and land are often used synonymously. We say, the produce or fruits of the ground, of the Earth, or of land. The surface of the Earth, or a floor or pavement
Naaman - " And it should seem the two mules burden of Earth, he begged permission to take home with him to Syria, were intended after each renewed instance of bowing in the house of Rimmon, to be used by way of cleansing from their sin. I do not decide upon the subject, but as we know from historians that the sprinkling of Earth where no water was immediately at hand, was occasionally used in the Eastern countries, in their religious services in the stead of water, it is probable, this might be the object Naaman had in view, in craving the indulgence of carrying home two mules' burden with him. The Syrian had found the efficacy of Israel's sacred stream of Jordan, and he concluded that the Earth of Canaan was as sacred also. As therefore, he could not take the river with him, he desired a portion of the Earth, which he supposed would prove equally salutary to the cleansing from sin. ...
But whether such were the views or not, with which Naaman's mind was influenced, when he desired the Earth of Israel; it may, at least, serve to teach us a lesson from this Syrian's faith, how to appreciate all our mercies in the Lord God of Israel. How doth the faith of this man, and so immediately wrought as it was in the mind of this poor idolater, reproach the supposed followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, who, after all the miracles, and evidences, and testimonies, with which the truth, as it is in Jesus, is brought home and confirmed to the heart, can hardly keep alive, from day to day, a suitable dependence upon Him! May we not take up the words of the Lord Jesus upon this occasion, and say, as he did: "Nevertheless, when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the Earth?" (Luke 18:8)...

Mother - The question then occurs whether the name of a female parent originated in a word expressing matter, mold either the soil of the Earth, as the producer, or the like substance, when shaped and fitted as a mold for castings or whether the name is connected with the opinion that the Earth is the mother of all productions whence the word mother-earth. If this word had its origin in the name of the Earth used for the forms of castings, it would not be a singular fact for our word mold, in this sense, I suppose to be so named from mold, fine Earth
Land, Ground - The dust of the Earth and by extension the soil of territory controlled by a farmer, a tribe, a nation, or God's entire created world. Exodus 20:24-25 shows altars made of two materials—ground or Earth ( Exodus 20:24 ) and stones (Exodus 20:25 ). In the beginning of Genesis 2:1 , the writer pictured the Earth with nothing growing, with no rain, and with no one to till the ground (Genesis 2:5 ). In Genesis 47:20 , the totality of their former lands that had been turned over to Pharaoh is called erets (meaning Earth or land). ...
Whole inhabited Earth—a ground where people live This unusual universalizing of ground is found in two of the most important texts of the Old Testament. God told Abraham that all the families of the inhabited Earth would be blessed in him (Genesis 12:3 ). God said the same thing to Jacob ( Genesis 28:14 ): Through what God did in Abraham's family, blessing would come to all families of the inhabited Earth. On the other hand, God's punishment would also be over the whole inhabited Earth. “In that day, that the Lord shall punish and the kings of the Earth (ground) upon Earth (ground) (Isaiah 24:21 )
New Jerusalem - The new Jerusalem is the focus for activity on the new Earth. The new Jerusalem motif provides an elaboration of the nature of the new heavens and new Earth introduced in Revelation 21:1 . Jerusalem provides an image of continuity that brings together Earth and eschatological history in regard to where God and his people dwell together. " Although the Old Testament contains no explicit reference to a new Jerusalem, Isaiah includes Jerusalem in his new heavens and new Earth statements (65:17-19; 66:22). Sibylline Oracles 5:414-29 record God's provision of a new city (a temple is included in contrast to Revelation 21-22 , which may reflect a more Earth-oriented perspective). ...
How is the reality of the new Jerusalem on the new Earth of Revelation 21-22 to be understood? Is it merely an allegorical description of the final state of the church with no real future new Earth locality in view? Is it a literal city that may hover over the millennial Earth and house the glorified church-age saints during that period and then be transferred for expanded purposes into the eternal state after the renovation of the Earth (some dispensationalists; but, some nondispensationalists also apply it to the millennial period)? Is it a literal city distinctly designed as a center focus for all the redeemed in the eternal state? Is the vision of John, given in apocalyptic motifs, merely a statement in sophisticated symbolism that God will be victor in the climax of history? These and other proposals appear in the literature that addresses this interpretive aspect of the new Jerusalem. Meadors...

Rain - Every one knows what rain is, and all are sensible of the importance of this blessing on the Earth. No doubt it is produced by the exhalation of the sun, forming vapours from the Earth and sea, which return in showers, to carry on the merciful purpose of the Lord in his blessings on nature. He represents a time of drought by the bottles of heaven being stopped, and the Earth languishing for thirst; and under these circumstances he brings in the heavens and the Earth as sending forth their cries for the needed mercy, and the goodness of the Lord in answering them. "And it shall come to pass in that day, I will hear, saith the Lord, I will hear the heavens, and they shall hear the Earth; and the Earth shall hear the corn, and the wine, and the oil; and they shall hear Jezreel. And I will sow her unto me in the Earth; and I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people, and they shall say, Thou art my God. " (Hosea 2:21-23) It is in vain for the men of Jezreel to expect the corn, and oil, and fruits of the Earth, if the Lord restrain the clouds of heaven and the rain, that they withhold their fatness. It is in vain for the Earth to cry to the heavens to send the rain, if the Lord of heaven gives not his commands to the clouds to answer the wants of nature. The latter rain was in the spring of the year, and this they called Malkush, which is supposed to be the peculiar and special refreshment for the dry Earth. "Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the Lord, his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the Earth. " Surely every redeemed soul that knoweth what these things mean must be constrained to say with David: "He is as the light of the morning when the sun ariseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the Earth, by clear shining after other beauties in the Scriptures concerning divine things, which are described under the similitude of rain;" but I must not enlarge, and therefore can only make reference to the Scriptures themselves. " I confess the expression by a figure may be said to be from heaven, even when the whirlwind is made by the winds on the sand of the Earth, because it is the Lord's judgment: yet, I humbly conceive, somewhat more is meant by this rain of powder and dust than the raising it from the Earth. Jesus Christ, who is as blessed to us against this calamity as he is blessed to us in the showers of rain, when he cometh to us as the "latter rain and as the former rain upon the Earth
Tammuz - Tammuz was the Syrian Adonis (Jerome), Venus' paramour, killed by a wild boar, and according to mythology permitted to spend half the year on Earth and obliged to spend the other half in the lower world. An annual feast was kept to him in June (Tammuz in the Jewish calendar) at Byblos, when the Syrian women tore off their hair in wild grief, and yielded their persons to prostitution, consecrating the hire of their infamy to Venus; next followed days of rejoicing for his return to the Earth. The idea fabled was spring's beauties and the river's waters destroyed by summer heat (the river Adonis or nahr Ibrahim in spring becomes discolored with the heavy rains swelling the streams from Lebanon, which discoloration superstition attributed to Tammuz' blood); or else the Earth clothed with beauty in the half year while the sun is in the upper hemisphere, and losing it when he descends to the lower (Ezekiel 8:14)
Weight - So, in every mountain and hill, the chemicals that compose that mass of Earth are put together by weight, and thus are made the various compounds found there. In addition to this, GOD must know the weight of the mountains, because the Earth is a ball and must rotate on an axis without bursting and flying to pieces. Our Lord has therefore determined exactly the weights of the mountains, the plains, the oceans, and every part of this Earth in order that it may rotate safely
Babylon the Great - This is also called "MYSTERY," "THE MOTHER OF THE HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE Earth. Some great religious system is alluded to, with whom the kings of the Earth had had illicit intercourse, and by whom the merchants of the Earth had been made rich
Heaven - "Thus saith the Lord, The heaen is my throne, and the Earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?" (Isaiah 66:1) But Solomon breaks out in an expression, as one overwhelmed with surprise and wonder in the contemplation: "But will God indeed (said he) dwell on the Earth? behold, the heaven, and the heaven of heavens cannot contain thee!" (1 Kings 8:27) But what would this mighty monarch have said, had he lived to have seen the Lord of heaven and Earth tabernacling in the substance of our flesh?...
But, though, according to the language of Scripture, we call that place heaven which John saw opened, and where the more immediate presence of the Lord is gloriously displayed, yet it were to limit the Holy One of Israel to suppose, that JEHOVAH dwelleth in any place, to the exclusion of his presence or glory elsewhere
Kingdom of Heaven - His work on Earth was to establish it, Matthew 3:2 . He introduced his disciples into it while on Earth, and more fully after his resurrection and ascension, John 20:22 Acts 2:32-36 ; is "head over all things," in order to make it triumphant and supreme even on Earth, Daniel 7:27 Ephesians 1:20-22
Famine - In the whole of Syria and Arabia, the fruits of the Earth must ever be dependent on rain; the watersheds having few large springs, and the small rivers not being sufficient for the irrigation of even the level lands. The causes of dearth and famine in Egypt are defective inundation, preceded, accompanied and followed by prevalent easterly and southerly winds. Famine is likewise a natural result in the East when caterpillars, locusts or other insects destroy the products of the Earth. We hear no more of times of scarcity until the great famine of Egypt, which "was over all the face of the Earth
Regeneration - ...
The third and crowning step will be the regeneration of our home, this Earth, and of "the whole creation," "the restitution of all things" (Acts 3:21; Matthew 19:28; Romans 8:19-23). The final regeneration of the Earth and nature shall be after the millennium (Revelation 21; 2 Peter 3:7-13)
Sorrow: Benefit of - Two seeds lie before us: the one is warmed in the sun, the other falls from the sower's hand into the cold dark Earth, and there it lies buried beneath the soil. Better far for the seed to pass intO the Earth and die, than to lie in the sunshine and produce no fruit; and even thus for thee the future in its sorrow shall be as a sowing in a fertile land; tears shall moisten thee, grace shall increase within tjee, and thou shalt grow up in the likeness of thy Lord unto perfection of holiness, to be such a flower of God's own planting as even angels shall delight to gaze upon in the day of thy transplanting to celestial soil

Mount Tabor - The name, in Hebrew, signifies a rising; and as it was centered in the midst of a wide country, it hath been called the Navel of Jezreel, similar to the holy land being called the midst of the Earth, as the margin of the Bible renders it, the Navel of the Earth

Hill - Psalm 2:6 (a) This is a clear reference to the Mount of Olives on which the Lord JESUS will stand when He returns to this Earth to set up His kingdom. ...
Isaiah 40:4 (c) This probably refers to real hills which prevent so much of this Earth from being usable and tillable. The Earth is a ball which rotates upon its axis and therefore it must be balanced, or else it would fly to pieces. GOD therefore does measure the waters, weigh the hills, and weigh the mountains so that the weight would be equally distributed throughout every part of the Earth
Abyss - ...
In the opinion of the ancient Hebrews, and of the generality of eastern people at this day, the abyss, the sea, or waters, encompassed the whole Earth. According to the same notion, the Earth was founded on the waters, or at least its foundations were on the abyss beneath, Psalms 24:2 ; Psalms 136:6 .

Evident in these more extended descriptions is the view that the world consisted of an expanse of land (“the Earth”) that was surrounded by water and set under the canopy of the heavens. ...
Basic to Hebrew thought was the affirmation that God created everything above the Earth, on the Earth, and under it (Genesis 1:1-2:3 ; Job 38:1 ). ” The word eretz (2,047 times) normally means “earth” or “land. ...
In the New Testament Three words are translated as “world” in the New Testament: oikoumene (15 times, “the inhabited Earth”), aion (over 30 times, similar to the Hebrew olam meaning “long duration,” “age,” or “world”), and kosmos (188 times). The early Christians in Jerusalem addressed God as “Sovereign Lord, you made the heaven and the Earth and the sea, and everything in them” ( Acts 4:24 NIV). The Earth and its inhabitants John 1:9 refers to “the true light which enlightens everyone was coming into the world” (NRSV). See Creation ; Earth; Heaven
Millennium - "a thousand years;" generally employed to denote the thousand years, during which, according to an ancient tradition in the church, grounded on some doubtful texts in the Apocalypse and other scriptures, our blessed Saviour shall reign with the faithful upon Earth after the first resurrection, before the final completion of beatitude. About the middle of the fourth century the Millenarians held the following tenets: 1st, That the city of Jerusalem should be rebuilt, and that the land of Judea should be the habitation of those who were to reign on the Earth a thousand years. 2dly, That the first resurrection was not to be confined to the martyrs, but that, after the fall of Antichrist, all the just were to rise, and all that were on the Earth were to continue for that space of time. 3dly, That Christ shall then come down from heaven, and be seen on Earth, and reign there with his servants. This passage all the ancient Millenarians took in a sense grossly literal, and taught, that, during the Millennium, the saints on Earth were to enjoy every bodily delight. ...
The moderns, on the other hand, consider the power and pleasures of this kingdom as wholly spiritual; and they represent them as not to commence till after the conflagration, or the present Earth. But that this last supposition is a mistake, the very next verse but one assures us; for we are there told, that, "when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, and shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the Earth;" and we have no reason to believe that he will have such power or such liberty in "the new heavens and the new Earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. In this time, in which the world will soon be filled with real Christians, and continue full by constant propagation to supply the place of those who leave the world, there will be many thousands born and live on the Earth, to each one that has been born and lived in the preceeding six thousand years; so that, if they who shall be born in that thousand years shall be all, or most of them saved (as they will be, ) there will, on the whole, be many thousands of mankind saved to one that shall be lost. Some think that Christ will reign personally on Earth, and that there will be a literal resurrection of the saints, Revelation 20:4 ; Revelation 20:7 ; but I rather suppose that the reign of Christ and resurrection of saints alluded to in that passage, is only figurative; and that nothing more is meant than that, before the general judgment, the Jews shall be converted, genuine Christianity be diffused through all nations, and that Christ shall reign, by his spiritual presence, in a glorious manner. In fact, the Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. And who knows but the present convulsions among different nations; the overthrow which popery has had in places where it has been so dominant for hundreds of years; the fulfilment of prophecy respecting infidels, and the falling away of many in the last times; and yet in the midst of all, the number of missionaries sent into different parts of the world, together with the increase of Gospel ministers; the thousands of ignorant children that have been taught to read the Bible, and the vast number of different societies that have been lately instituted for the benevolent purpose of informing the minds and impressing the hearts of the ignorant; who knows, I say, but what these things are the forerunners of events of the most delightful nature, and which may usher in the happy morn of that bright and glorious day when the whole world shall be filled with his glory, and all the ends of the Earth see the salvation of our God? ...

New Jerusalem - ’ It is a city of heavenly origin and full of fresh life, the metropolis of the new Earth (cf. in Isaiah 65:17 : ‘For, behold, I create new heavens and a new Earth: and the former things shall not be remembered, nor come into mind,’ and in Isaiah 66:22 : ‘For as the new heavens and the new Earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the Lord, so shall your seed and your name remain. 4, 5: ‘And I will transform the heaven and make it an eternal blessing and light: and I will transform the Earth and make it a blessing’; lxxii. 29: ‘And the angel of the presence who went before the camp of Israel took the tables of the divisions of the years … from the day of the [1] creation when the heavens and the Earth shall be renewed and all their creation according to the powers of the heaven, … until the sanctuary of the Lord shall be made in Jerusalem on Mount Zion. The heavenly Jerusalem in 4 Ezra is described as ‘the city that now is invisible’ (7:26), ‘a City builded’ (8:52, 10:27), ‘the [2] pattern of her [3]’ (10:49); its descent from heaven is mentioned in 13:36: ‘And Zion shall come and shall be made manifest to all men, prepared and builded, even as thou didst see the mountain cut out without hands,’ while its preservation in heaven is referred to in 2 Bar. 16-19: ‘Destroy all wrong from the face of the Earth. And then shall the whole Earth be tilled in righteousness, and shall all be planted with trees and be full of blessing’; also in xxv. 1-6: ‘This high mountain which thou hast seen, whose summit is like the throne of God, is His throne, where the Holy Great One, the Lord of Glory, the Eternal King, will sit, when He shall come down to visit the Earth with goodness. Then shall they rejoice with joy and be glad, and into the holy place shall they enter; and its fragrance shall be in their bones, and they shall live a long life on Earth, such as thy fathers lived’; and again in Pss. -The Jews at first had no thought of any change in the present order of things: ‘One generation goeth, and another generation cometh; and the Earth abideth for ever’ (Ecclesiastes 1:4); ‘Who laid the foundations of the Earth, that it should not be moved for ever’ (Psalms 104:5); ‘The world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved’ (Psalms 93:1, Psalms 96:10); ‘He hath also stablished them [4] for ever and ever’ (Psalms 148:6). The heavens and the Earth formed an established order of things that would be eternal in duration. According to the prophetic teaching, the scene of the Messianic Kingdom was to be the present Earth, and that Kingdom was to last for ever; cf. Isaiah 65:17; Isaiah 66:22, where the scene of the Messianic Kingdom is no longer this present world but a new heaven and a new Earth. Jerusalem will be transformed as the metropolis of the new Earth, but not yet created a new as the New Jerusalem: ‘For, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. The same idea is perhaps present also in Isaiah 51:16 : ‘And I have put my words in thy mouth, and have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the Earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people,’ but if so, it is a foreign element adopted in eclectic fashion from Zoroastrianism (cf. Nowhere else in the OT is the Messianic Kingdom conceived of otherwise than as eternal on this present Earth. poetically in Isaiah 51:6 : ‘Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the Earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the Earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished’; also in 34:3f. ): ‘Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the Earth; and the heavens are the work of thy hands. 26: ‘and Mount Zion (which) will be sanctified in the new creation for a sanctification of the Earth; through it will the Earth be sanctified from all (its) guilt and its uncleanness throughout the generations of the world’; ‘And the days shall begin to grow many and increase amongst those children of men till their days draw nigh to one thousand years, and to a greater number of years than (before) was the number of the days’ (xxiii. Here the centre of the Kingdom is no longer the Earthly Jerusalem, but the New Jerusalem brought down from heaven (cf. A purified city is not enough; a new and heavenly city must take the place of the old and Earthly city as the metropolis of the world-wide Messianic Kingdom. 16 of a new heaven but not of a new Earth, but it is in 1 En. ) that we have for the first time the conception of a new heaven and a new Earth consistently set forth. Isaiah 65:20, where rather illogically the wicked still live on the new Earth). , with regard to the duration of the Kingdom; for while most other writers left behind the OT idea of an everlasting Kingdom and expected only a temporary one on the present Earth, he holds to the eternal duration of the Kingdom, contributing the new and fruitful conception of a new heaven and a new Earth as the scene of it. It is here, therefore, in the apocalyptic literature that we find the immediate source of the Christian hope of a new heaven and a new Earth which meets us in the NT. up to the time of the destruction of Jerusalem, the prevalent thought was that of a temporary Messianic Kingdom with the Earth as its scene, described sometimes in a very materialistic fashion, as in 2 Bar. 5: ‘The Earth also shall yield its fruit ten thousandfold and on each vine there shall be a thousand branches, and each branch will produce a thousand clusters, and each cluster will produce a thousand grapes, and each grape will produce a cor of wine. Even the thought of a temporary Messianic Kingdom is at times given up, especially after the destruction of Jerusalem, for the present Earth is wholly unfit for the advent of the Messiah; a renewal of the world is felt to be necessary-a renewal that will be everlasting and incorruptible (cf. , after the Earthly Jerusalem has gone, that the thought of the New Jerusalem reappears as the centre of the renewed world to which all hopes are turned, and here we encounter the writings of the NT, which contain that sublimest of descriptions of the New Jerusalem in the Christian Apocalypse. The conception of the Millennium, or the reign of Christ for a thousand years on the present Earth, with Jerusalem as the metropolis of this temporary Kingdom, occurs only in the Apocalypse (cf. It is a conception with an exclusively Jewish basis, but one that opens the way for the idea of a new era of blessedness, not on the present Earth but in a renewed world; at the close of the Millennium the present order of things passes away-‘And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it, from whose face the Earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them’ (Revelation 20:11); ‘And I saw a new heaven and a new Earth: for the first heaven and the first Earth are passed away’ (Revelation 21:24-27). This is the scene of the final consummation, and the centre of it is no more the Earthly Jerusalem or a purified Jerusalem, but the New Jerusalem that comes down from heaven-from God Himself (Revelation 21:2). It is the same city that the author of Hebrews, writing some time before the author of the Apocalypse, has in mind when he refers to Abraham, who ‘looked for the city which hath the foundations, whose builder and maker is God’ (Hebrews 11:10); it is ‘the heavenly Jerusalem’ (Hebrews 12:22), the centre of that Kingdom ‘that cannot be shaken,’ for ‘yet once more will I make to tremble not the Earth only, but also the heaven. The Earthly Jerusalem had been in ruins for a quarter of a century, Hadrian’s new city was not yet in existence, and the Christian Seer had no thought of the possibility of rebuilding the old. …’...
Revelation 21:1 : ‘And the nations shall walk amidst the light thereof; and the kings of the Earth do bring their glory into it
Thousand Years - The period of Christ's coming reign with His saints over this Earth, delivered from Satan's presence. Satan thought to destroy God's people by persecutions (just as previously to destroy Christ, Revelation 12); but the church is not destroyed from the Earth, but raised to rule over it; Satan himself is shut up for a thousand years in the "abyss" (" bottomless pit"), preparatory to the "lake of fire," his final doom. As before, by Christ's ascension, he ceased to be accuser of the brethren in heaven, so during the millennium he ceases to be seducer and persecutor on Earth. Papias, Justin Martyr, Irenaeus, Cyprian, expected an Earthly millennial kingdom; not until millennial views carnally confounded the state of the transfigured king-priests with that of the subject nations in the flesh, and the church itself sought a present visible kingdom with Rome as its center, instead of hoping for it only when Christ shall come, was the doctrine abandoned by the church and apostasy set in. Earth, not becoming transfigured until after the millennium, shall not be, during it, the meet home for the transfigured saints; but from heaven they with Christ rule the Earth, the comparatively free communion between the heavenly and Earthly churches being typified by Christ's communion at short intervals with His disciples during the 40 days between His resurrection and ascension. What the transfigured priest-kings shall be in heaven, that the Israelite priest-kings shall be on Earth. The outpouring of the Spirit on Israel (Zechariah 12:10) will usher in the new period of revelation, which has been silent so long as Israel, God's chosen mediator of revelations, and of establishing His manifested kingdom on Earth, has been in the background. Earthly and heavenly glories shall be united in the twofold election: elect Israel in the flesh shall stand at the head of the Earthly nations; the elect spiritual church, in the heavenly kingdom, shall reign over both. ...
Even during the millennium there is a separation between heaven and Earth, humanity transfigured and humanity in the flesh. Only then the new heaven and Earth are perfected. The millennial heaven and Earth, connected but separate, are but a foretaste of the everlasting state, when the upper and lower congregations shall be no longer separate and new Jerusalem shall descend from God out of heaven. )...
As "kings" the transfigured saints shall have subjects; as "priests" they shall have people to whom they shall mediatorially minister blessings from God, namely, the men on Earth. The scene of the kingdom is not in, but "under, heaven"; on or over the Earth (Revelation 5:10; Daniel 7:27). on Earth. "The meek shall inherit the Earth"; like Caleb, alone faithful among the faithless, inheriting the very Mount Hebron on which his feet trod 40 years before (Matthew 5:5; Numbers 14:23-24; Joshua 14:9). The theocracy, or rule of God in Christ, shall supersede the misrule of Earthly potentates who ruled for self. The Earth, once baptized with water, shall be baptized with fire (2 Peter 3:7; 2 Peter 3:10-13). Earth and nature shall be regenerated, as the nations were previously in the millennium. ...
The saints not merely, as in it, reign from heaven over the Earth; but the heavenly Jerusalem, having the glory of God, shall descend on Earth, far eclipsing Israel's Jerusalem in the millennium. ...
In the primitive paradise there was but a garden with a solitary pair; but in the final paradise and the regenerated Earth city and garden shall be combined, the perfect communion of saints with individual blessedness and perfection
Brass - With us a mixed metal, consisting of copper and zinc; but the brass of the Bible is one dug simple out of the Earth (Deuteronomy 8:9; Job 28:2), probably copper. In Leviticus 26:19, "I will make your heaven as iron, and your Earth as brass," i
Harvest - Jeremiah 8:20 (b) This is a description of the end time when the Lord will judge the Earth and gather into Heaven believers who are profitable to Him (the grain), but will shut out of Heaven the weeds and the tares which have no value to Him. ...
Revelation 14:15 (a) This is a picture of the Great Tribulation when the end comes and GOD comes forth in mighty judgment and terrible wrath to punish the wicked and the rebellious people of Earth
Firmament - Raqi'ah , "the expanse stretched out as a curtain" over the Earth (Isaiah 40:22; Psalms 104:2), resting on the mountains as its pillars (the language is phenomenal, as indeed necessarily is that of even men of science often): Job 26:11. It includes the atmosphere immediately round the Earth, in which the birds fly, and which bears up the clouds (Genesis 1:6-7; Genesis 1:20; in Genesis 1:14 it also comprises the region in which the sun, moon, and stars are seen)
Seraphim - " They cried to one another, "Holy, holy, holy is Jehovah of hosts; the whole Earth is full of his glory. "...
The distinction between seraphim and cherubim may be that, while the former bear witness to God's holiness (that is, to His nature), in the latter are exhibited the principles of His righteous government on the Earth
Purpose of God - Behind all His outward acts towards His ancient people Israel, His dealings with the nations of the Earth, and His discipline of the saints who form the church, there is His purpose concerning all, and to this purpose everything is made to bend, and towards its accomplishment everything in some way or other (however hidden from the sight of man) is working. This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole Earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations
Gifts - When Solomon reigned supreme, 'all the Earth' sought to Solomon to hear his wisdom, and brought presents, as did the queen of Sheba. This is a type of Christ's kingdom as established on Earth, when presents, as willing tribute, will be sent from all nations to the Lord Jesus
Appeal - The Jewish writers say that before and after the time of Christ on Earth, appeals could be carried through the various courts to the Grand Sanhedrim at Jerusalem. There is One who "cometh to judge the Earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity
John Evangelist, Saint - Not only was he one of the Twelve Apostles but he was one of thethree chosen witnesses of our Lord's greatest glory and humiliationon Earth, viz. John, and most fitly, "for like the eaglehe soars high above the Earth basking in the pure sunlight ofDivine Truth
Mount - A mass of Earth, or Earth and rock, rising considerably above the common surface of the surrounding land. Mount is used for an eminence or elevation of Earth, indefinite in highth or size, and may be a hillock, hill or mountain
Pillar - In the midst of his own unusual losses, he is realizing that GOD can shake the Heaven and the Earth, and break all laws that pertain to the hanging of the Earth in space. It probably refers to the time of the end when GOD's judgment will be poured out on the physical Earth, and it will be burned up with terrific heat because of the wickedness of rebellious men
Dew - The dew is a merciful provision the Lord hath ordained for moistening the plants and other productions of the Earth in dry seasons, when there is no rain. " (Song of Song of Solomon 5:2) Hence, the resurrection of his people by grace, as hereafter to glory, is said to be "as the dew of herbs, and the Earth shall cast out her dead. " (Isaiah 26:19) meaning that as from the rich dews which fall upon the Earth, the dry, withered, and apparently dead plants of the winter shall again bud, and break forth in the spring, so the dead and dying state of Christ's redeemed shall, from the dew of his birth, "revive as the corn, and grow as the vine
Field - That is its meaning in its first biblical appearance: “And every plant of the field before it was in the Earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the Earth …” ( Earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; …”...
Cain - And now art thou cursed from the Earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand. When thou tillest it, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee its strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the Earth. Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the Earth," meaning, probably, from his own native district, and from the presence of his kindred, "and from thy face shall I be hid;" by which he probably intended the divine glory, or Shekinah, whose appearance sanctified the place of primitive worship, and was the pledge of acceptance and protection
Dispensation, - ...
This was followed by the lengthy period of nearly 1600 years till the flood — a time of no ordered dealing of God with men, during which men corrupted their way, and the Earth was filled with violence. In the post-diluvian world government of man by his fellow was established by God, while a knowledge of God, as a God who judged evil, was spread abroad by the descendants of Noah; traditions of the Flood being found all over the Earth. Then followed the division of the Earth into various nations and tribes, according to their families and tongues. The oracles of God were given to a nation, the only nation in all the Earth that God had known in this way. The Dispensation of the Reign of Christ over the Earth during the millennium
Kingdom of Christ of Heaven - ; 2, the condition of things Christ came to explain, Luke 1:33; Acts 1:3, and to bring on Earth, Matthew 4:17; Matthew 3:1-17, Christ's rule over Israel, Matthew 21:13; Matthew 4:1-25, the rule that God offered or committed to Israel, Matthew 21:43; 1 Chronicles 17:14; 1 Chronicles 5:1-26, the state of things in the history of the church during the conflict on Earth of the so-called kingdom of grace, preparatory to the kingdom of glory, Matthew 13:1-58; Matthew 6:1-34, Christ's rule in spiritual and eternal righteousness over the redeemed Earth, Revelation 12:10, in contrast with the world-powers, Daniel 7:18; then the kingdom will destroy and take the place of the four monarchies, Daniel 7:1-28, and have its glorious manifestation; 7, the visible glory of Christ, Matthew 16:28; Matthew 8:1-34, the rule of God the Father over Earth and heaven, Matthew 6:10; Matthew 9:1-38, the heavenly state.

World - 1: κόσμος (Strong's #2889 — Noun Masculine — kosmos — kos'-mos ) primarily "order, arrangement, ornament, adornment" (1 Peter 3:3 , see ADORN , B), is used to denote (a) the "earth," e. , Matthew 13;35 ; John 21:25 ; Acts 17:24 ; Romans 1:20 (probably here the universe: it had this meaning among the Greeks, owing to the order observable in it); 1 Timothy 6:7 ; Hebrews 4:3 ; 9:26 ; (b) the "earth" in contrast with Heaven, 1 John 3:17 (perhaps also Romans 4:13 ); (c) by metonymy, the "human race, mankind," e. ...

Malachi 4:1 (a) In the great judgment day, whether it be the local one with the nations, or the individual one with Israel, or the eternal one in the last great final day, the wicked are to be removed from the Earth, with no posterity. If the time refers to the end time, when the Earth is dissolved, then also all the wicked of the Earth are sent to the eternal lake of fire, and their memory is blotted out. They have been destroyed from off the Earth, root and branch. ...
Judges 1:12 (b) Probably our Lord is reminding us of the fact that the enemies of GOD will be completely destroyed from off the Earth as was Hitler and as was Judas
Flood, the - This judgement of God upon the Earth, when the whole world had become corrupt before Him, has often been thought to be a subject full of difficulties, the principal of which it may be well to consider. And all flesh died that moved upon the Earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the Earth, and every man: all in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. After the flood God said He would not any more smite 'every thing living,' as He had done, Genesis 8:21 ; "neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the Earth. Words cannot be plainer than the above to signify a universal deluge: the world that then was is distinguished from the Earththat now is, and it is easy for faith to accept God's statement. It was a miracle, and it would require as great a miracle to cover all the highhills in one district only, without the water flowing to other parts, as to submerge the whole Earth. The quantity of water required to cover the whole Earth could easily be formed by God the Creator of all things, and be dispersed into its elements afterwards. God commenced a new economy as to the Earth, in connection with the sweet savour of Noah's sacrifice. The flood was about 1700 years after the creation of Adam, and it is impossible to say how many millions of people there were on the Earth at the time, or how far they had been dispersed

Scroll - It may be that the Lord is telling us that all the records of things pertaining to our lives on Earth and to the activities in Heaven will be rolled up as a scroll is rolled, and will be remembered no more
Amillennialism - Instead, it teaches that we are in the millennium now, and that at the return of Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18; 1Th 5:1-2) there will be the final judgment and the heavens and the Earth will then be destroyed and remade (2 Peter 3:10)
Knipperdolings - A denomination in the 16th century; so called from Bertrand Knipperdoling, who taught that the righteous before the day of judgment shall have a monarchy on Earth, and the wicked be destroyed: that men are not justified by their faith in Christ Jesus; that there is no original sin; that infants ought not to be baptized, and that immersion is the only mode of baptism; that every one has authority to preach and administer the sacraments; that men are not obliged to pay respect to magistrates; that all things ought to be in common, and that it is lawful to marry many wives
Perpendicular - ) Exactly upright or vertical; pointing to the zenith; at right angles to the plane of the horizon; extending in a right line from any point toward the center of the Earth
Compacted - 1: συνίστημι (Strong's #4921 — Verb — sunistemi — soon-is-tah'-o, soon-is-tah'-an'-o, soon-is-tah'-ay-mee ) and transitively sunistao, "to stand together" (sun, "with," histemi, "to stand"), is rendered "compacted," in 2 Peter 3:5 , of the Earth as formerly arranged by God in relation to the waters

Satiate - To fill to the extent of want as, to satiate the Earth or plants with water
Pattern - Christ was the most perfect pattern of rectitude,patience and submission ever exhibited on Earth
Tillage - Tillage of the Earth is the principal as it was the first occupation of man, and no employment is more honorable
Apocalyptic - Type of biblical literature that emphasizes the lifting of the veil between heaven and Earth and the revelation of God and his plan for the world. Sociologically, it seems better to say that apocalyptic is the product of a prophetic movement, which claims to reveal the way things really are, both in heaven and on Earth (the term "apocalypse, " the Greek name of the Book of Revelation, means "unveiling"). These concern particularly the relation between heaven and Earth, the rule of God over both, and his ultimate victory over evil. ...
The Interconnectedness of Heaven and Earth This follows as much from the mode of revelation as from the fact of it. John's entry into heaven is a token of the closeness of heaven to Earth. Having entered it, he is able from that vantage-point to survey both heaven and Earth and to see how, really, Earth can only be understood when it is seen as one-half of a much greater reality. There are heavenly counterparts of Earthly realities, like the "angels of the seven churches" (Revelation 1:20 ), and the four living creatures by the throne (Revelation 4:6 ), and the "son of man" of Daniel 7:13 , who to some extent represents God's people in heaven (Daniel 7:18 ). Similarly there are Earthly counterparts of heavenly realities, seen for instance in the ghastly pairing of the two women who are also cities in Revelation 17-21 : on the one hand the Great Whore, who enslaves the world by war and commerce, and on the other the Bride of Christ, who brings healing to the nations. ...
There is mutual penetration, expressed both by the presence of the risen Christ in and with his church (Revelation 1-3 ), and also by the way in which Earthly powers are seen as nurtured by the power of the beast (Revelation 17 ). Life on Earth is determined from heaven: Decrees are issued from the throne that affect the Earth (Revelation 16:1 ; cf. Daniel 7:26 ), and events in heaven have a radical effect on Earth (such as the ejection of the defeated dragon from heaven, Revelation 12:9,12 ). ...
Although Earth is the sphere of the dragon and the beast, yet heaven and Earth are seen as a single organism. 11), and finally to "every created thing in heaven and on Earth and under the Earth" (v. At the end heaven and Earth will be recreated together (Revelation 21:1 )
Experience: Boasting of Its Depth - The well-sinkers dug through mud, and clay, and stone, but found no water; here was the deep experience of the corruptionist, all Earth and no living spring, the filth revealed but not removed, the leper discovered but not healed. Be this last my experience: to go so deep as to reach the springs of everlasting love, and find all my poor doings and efforts totally submerged, because the blessed fountains of grace have broken in upon me, covering all the mire, and rock, and Earth of my poor, naturally evil heart
Binding And Loosing - This means that whatsoever shall have been forgiven on Earth shall have been forgiven in heaven. Heaven sets the standard, Earth follows heaven's lead
Father - times that God should be made known as Father; and this was done only by the Lord Jesus while upon Earth, who constantly spoke to His disciples of God as their Father in heaven. He could, as the Son, while on Earth thus make Him known to them
Dig - ) To turn up, or delve in, (earth) with a spade or a hoe; to open, loosen, or break up (the soil) with a spade, or other sharp instrument; to pierce, open, or loosen, as if with a spade. ) To hollow out, as a well; to form, as a ditch, by removing Earth; to excavate; as, to dig a ditch or a well

Generation - So in Genesis 2:4 , "The generations of the heavens and of the Earth," that is, their genealogy, so to speak, the history of the creation of heaven and Earth; also in Matthew 1:1 , "The book of the generation of Jesus Christ," that is, the genealogy of Jesus Christ," that is, the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the history of his descent and life
Revolution - In physics, rotation the circular motion of a body on its axis a course or motion which brings every point of the surface or periphery of a body back to the place at which it began to move as the revolution of a wheel the diurnal revolution of the Earth. The motion of a body round any fixed point or center as the annual revolution of the Earth or other planet in its orbit round the center of the system
Mithraism - According to the doctrine of Mithraism the highest God was Infinite Time, who begat Heaven and Earth, which in turn begat their son and equal, Ocean. These evil spirits wandered over the world afflicting man, who roust worship the four simple elements, fire, air, Earth, and water. The mediator between God and man was Mithra, the sun-god, a divinity of fidelity, manliness, and bravery, who floats midway between upper heaven and the Earth, and who protects man
Natural - Natural history, in its most extensive sense, is the description of whatever is created, or of the whole universe, including the heavens and the Earth, and all the productions of the Earth. But more generally, natural history is limited to a description of the Earth and its productions, including zoology, botany, geology, mineralogy, meteorology, & 100 ...
Natural philosophy, the science of material natural bodies, of their properties, powers and motions
Corn - ...
Psalm 4:7 (b) This type indicates the temporal prosperity of the people of this Earth. ...
Psalm 72:16 (b) Probably this represents the great blessing that shall come upon Israel and which will radiate out to the nations of the Earth when GOD restores His people to be the head of the nations. The Holy Spirit is the gardener who takes the grain of Earth, the Christian, plants him in His harvest field where He wants him to be, and places him where he will produce the best crop
Christ, the Christ, - ...
In Daniel we read that Messiah the Prince would be cut off and have nothing (margin), which was fulfilled when, instead of being hailed as Messiah by the Jews, He was rejected, cut off, and had, at the time, nothing of His Messianic honours, though, in His death, He laid the foundation of His future glory on Earth, as well as effecting eternal redemption for the saved. ...
Being rejected as Messiah on Earth, He is made as risen from the dead both Lord and Christ, Acts 2:36 , and thus the counsels of God with regard to Him, and man in Him, are effectuated. All things in heaven and on Earth are to be headed up in the Christ, Ephesians 1:10
Fat - Thus the fat of the Earth is made use of to denote the whole of temporal blessings. (Genesis 27:28) "God give thee of the dew of heaven and the fatness of the Earth, and plenty of corn and wine. " And as these temporal blessings were the consequence of spiritual mercies, and these all founded in Christ, nothing can be plainer than that the fatness had an eye to Him, in whom all nations of the Earth were to be blessed. " (Psalms 63:5)...
The soul cannot be satisfied with Earthly things; but these are figurative expressions, to intimate the soul-enriching blessings in Jesus
Bread - No altar but that of Earth, (because the Earth is the Lord's,) was to be made for offering. If but a tool was lifted up upon the altar of Earth, or stone, the whole was polluted
Violence - ...
It is this latter sense which appears in the phrase “the Earth was full of violent wrongdoing”: “The Earth also was corrupt before God, and the Earth was filled with violence” ( Seed Growing Secretly, Parable of the - When a man has sown his seed whether he is asleep or awake, night or day, germination will go on without his knowing how, and the Earth will put forth first the blade, then the ear, and last of all the full corn in the ear. It is one of a trinity of parables which describe the Kingdom of God on Earth, the others being the "Sower" and the "Mustard Seed. The parable is explained thus: the seed is the teaching of the Gospel; the sower is primarily Christ who first promulgated this teaching and left it to the Church, and secondarily the Apostles and their successors; by Earth is meant the hearts and souls of men
Flood - ...
The natural causes God used to bring about the flood were twofold – forty days heavy rain combined with what seems to have been Earthquake activity that sent the waters of the sea pouring into the Mesopotamian valley (Genesis 7:11-12). Even after the rain stopped and the Earth settled, the flood waters took a long time to go down. Seven months later, grass and plants had grown sufficiently to allow Noah, his family and the animals to leave the ark and begin life afresh on the Earth (Genesis 8:14-19). (Expressions of universality such as ‘all the Earth’, ‘everywhere’, ‘all people’, ‘everyone’, etc
Beast - ) Dominion is not specified as given over the (wild, savage) "beasts of the Earth" (mainly carnivora ), but only "over all the Earth. " Noah is not said to take into the ark beasts of the Earth; but in Genesis 9:9-10, "beasts of the Earth" are distinguished from "all that go out of the ark. " Next to fear of a deluge was their fear of the beasts of the Earth; but God assures men "the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the Earth" (Genesis 9:2)

The Earth was where they lived and the heavens were the skies above, the place of the sun, moon, stars, clouds and birds (Genesis 1:1; Genesis 1:17; Genesis 1:20; Genesis 15:5; Deuteronomy 4:19; 2 Corinthians 12:2-33; Matthew 5:18; Hebrews 11:12). ...
From the present viewpoint of Earth, no one has any way of knowing what life in heaven will be like (1 John 3:2). No doubt people will be identifiable in heaven by their individual personalities just as they are on Earth. ...

(See Psalms 46:4; Psa 48:1; Psa 48:8; Psa 87:3; Song of Song of Solomon 3:2-3 and also Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 3:12; Rev 21:2-10; Rev 22:19) The city of God in his church upon Earth, and in heaven, is one and the same

Earthquake - A shaking or trembling of the Earth due to volcanic activity or, more often, the shifting of the Earth's crust. Severe Earthquakes produce such side effects as loud rumblings (Ezekiel 3:12-13 ), openings in the Earth's crust (Numbers 16:32 ) and fires (Revelation 8:5 ). ...
The Bible mentions an Earthquake during the reign of Uzziah (Amos 1:1 ; Zechariah 14:5 ). The oracles of Amos are dated two years before this Earthquake. as the likely dates for the Earthquake. Amos 1:1 draws attention to the fact that Amos spoke his oracles two years before the Earthquake of Uzziah's time. Two passages in Amos are sometimes interpreted to be referring to God's judgment coming in the form of an Earthquake ( Amos 2:13-16 ; Amos 9:1-4 ). If Amos did have an Earthquake in mind in these two passages, then the dating of Amos' ministry two years before the Earthquake would emphasize for the reader the fact that Amos was a true prophet. In fact, it may have even been the Earthquake two years after Amos' preaching that caused his words to be remembered and written down. ...
Earthquakes are used symbolically in the Bible. Many times God's judgment or visitation is described using the imagery of an Earthquake (Psalm 18:7 ; Isaiah 29:6 ; Nahum 1:5 ; Revelation 6:12 ; Revelation 8:5 ; Revelation 11:13 ; Revelation 16:18 ) and is often seen as a sign of the end of time (Matthew 24:7 ,Matthew 24:7,24:29 ). Many times an Earthquake is a sign of God's presence or of God's revelation of Himself (1 Kings 19:11-12 ; Psalm 29:8 ; Ezekiel 38:19-20 ; Joel 2:10 ; Joel 3:16 ; Acts 4:31 ; Revelation 11:19 ). ...
Even though Earthquakes were usually seen in the Bible as things to escape (Isaiah 2:19 ,Isaiah 2:19,2:21 ; possibly Joel 3:16 ; Amos 9:1-4 ), they could be used by God for good purposes (Acts 16:26 ). The Earth quaked in revulsion at the death of Jesus (Matthew 27:51-54 ) and the Earth quaked to move the stone from Jesus' tomb (Matthew 28:2 ). Those who love God and are faithful to Him have no need to fear the trembling of the Earth (Psalm 46:2-3 )
Millennium - ...
Postmillennialism The growth of the church and the power of the gospel will cause the world to get better and better until the present order blends into the millennium during which the righteous will be in charge on Earth. Therefore, this view does not look for a literal, future thousand year reign of Christ on the Earth during which Satan is bound. During the millennium, Christ will reign on the Earth with His saints while Satan is bound in the bottomless pit. Historic premillennialism holds to a literal, future reign of Christ on Earth, during which Satan is bound a thousand years and the saints reign with Christ
Heaven, Heavens, Heavenlies - "Heaven" is the created reality beyond Earth. "The heavens and the Earth" (Genesis 1:1 ) circumscribe the entire creation, or what we call the universe. God transcends not only Earth, but heaven as well. ...
"Heaven" designates two interrelated and broad concepts—the physical reality beyond the Earth and the spiritual reality in which God dwells. ...
The extent to which Earthly blessings evidence heavenly approval needs to be conditioned. Jesus taught that the span of life on Earth is severely limited when considering heavenly blessing. , from a purely Earthly perspective), asks readers to consider that "God is in heaven and you are on the Earth" (5:2). ...
Those claiming a heavenly inheritance are required to bring the Earthly and the heavenly into alignment. Proactively, believers store up treasures (6:20) by being prudent managers of the little and perishable on Earth in order to insure the abundant and enduring in heaven (Luke 16:1-13 ). Either the Earthly or heavenly value system will prevail. So, those who pray, "Your will be done on Earth as it is in heaven" (Matthew 6:10 ) are obliged to live from a heavenly vantage point. The greatest witness on Earth to heavenly glory is Jesus Christ (John 1:14,18 ). Christ's essential oneness with the Father is established in that the Old Testament notion that Jehovah "fills heaven and Earth" (Jeremiah 23:24 ) is ascribed to Christ (Ephesians 1:23 ; 4:10 ; Colossians 1:16,20 ). Although Creator of heavens and Earth (1:10), the Son is now seated at the right hand of God's throne in heaven (1:4), mediating for believers (4:14-16). The restoration of the image of God in human beingsfrom Earthly to heavenlywill be complete (1618542339_83 ). Believers are commanded to adopt an Earthly lifestyle of dying to sin and living to righteousness (Romans 6:4 ), and to set their minds on the heavenly reality that will soon be revealed in Christ (Colossians 4:1-4 ). The battles of life are won on Earth with heavenly weapons, not Earthly ones. At the final consummation, God will make "new heavens and a new Earth" (Isaiah 65:17 ; 66:22 ; Revelation 22:1 ). The "new heavens and Earth" follow the judgment of Satan (Revelation 20:7-10 ) and the Great White Throne judgment (20:11-15), both of which take place in heaven and will never be repeated. ...
The sharp distinction between heaven and Earth will be removed when God makes all things new. Who can say to what extent angels are active today on Earth? The truth might be found in Jacob's vision of a ladder extending from Earth to heaven on which the angels of God ascended and descended (Genesis 28:12 ). Travis, Where on Earth Is Heaven? ...

Affliction - Who that for the first time beheld the Earth in the midst of winter, bound up with frost, or drenched in floods of rain, or covered with snow, would have imagined that Nature, in this dreary and torpid state, was working towards its own renovation in the spring? ...
Yet we by experience know that those vicissitudes of winter are necessary for fertilizing the Earth; and that under wintry rains and snows lies concealed the seeds of those roses that are to blossom in the spring; of those fruits that are to ripen in the summer; and of the corn and wine which are in harvest to make glad the heart of man. It would be more agreeable to us to be always entertained with a fair and clear atmosphere, with cloudless skies, and perpetual sunshine: yet in such climates as we have most knowledge of, the Earth, were it always to remain in such a state, would refuse to yield its fruits; and, in the midst of our imagined scenes of beauty, the starved inhabitants would perish for want of food

Creation - ...
The discoveries made by geologists of the various strata of the Earth, the fossils found therein, together with the time that would necessarily be required for the formation of those strata, raised a cry that scripture must be incorrect in saying all was done in seven days. That a long gap, of as many thousands of years as were necessary for the formation of the Earth's crust, may be placed between verses 1 and 2 of Genesis 1 . That Genesis 1:1 refers to the original creation of the heaven and Earth out of nothing; that the different beds were formed with the varying objects that are found therein as fossils, occupying a very long period. Then in Genesis 1:2 another condition is found: the Earth by some means had become without form and void. * It was then ordered in view of the creation of man; and the various things were arranged and formed in the six days as detailed in Genesis 1 , as they are now found in and on the Earth. ...
The principal objection to this is, that though there had been upheavals, depressions, Earthquakes, sudden deaths, as evidenced by the contortions of fishes, in some of the early strata, there is no appearance after the various beds had been formed of what would answer to Genesis 1:2 , which says "the Earth was without form and void. The other theory is that Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 1:2 refer to the formation of the Earth as matter, or that Genesis 1:1 refers to the creation of the Earth, and that Genesis 1:2 refers to its being disordered by some means, as in the above theory, but that the various beds were formed with the fossils found therein during the six days recorded in Genesis 1 ; and that the days were of any needed indefinite length. It has been shown that the first things named as on the Earth were grass and herbs, and these are always found in the lowest beds; and the other things created are found exactly in the same order upwards from the lowest, until man appears
Create - The verb expresses creation out of nothing, an idea seen clearly in passages having to do with creation on a cosmic scale: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the Earth” ( Earth and made [3] it; he hath established [4] it, he created [1] it not in vain, he formed [6] it to be inhabited: I am the Lord; and there is none else. Objects of the verb include the heavens and Earth ( Earth, and created [2] man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded” ( Earth” (RSV). 2:4 states: “These are the generations of the heavens and of the Earth when they were created [2], in the day that the Lord God made [10] the Earth and the heavens
Eclipse - An eclipse of the sun is caused by the intervention of the moon, at new, or in conjunction with the sun, intercepting his light from the Earth, either totally or partially. An eclipse of the moon is caused by the intervention of the Earth, intercepting the sun's light from the moon, when full, or in opposition to the sun, either totally or partially. The reason why the sun is not eclipsed every new moon, nor the moon at every full, is owing to the inclination of the moon's orbit to the plane of the ecliptic, or Earth's orbit, is an angle of about five degrees and a half: in consequence of which, the moon is generally too much elevated above the plane of the ecliptic, or too much depressed below it, for her disk to touch the Earth's shadow at full, or for her shadow, or her penumbra, to touch the Earth's disk at new. For an eclipse of the moon is visible to the inhabitants of half the globe at the same instant; whereas, an eclipse of the sun is visible only within that part of the Earth's surface, traversed by the moon's total shadow, and by her penumbra, or partial shadow. But her total shadow, when she is nearest to the Earth, cannot cover a space of more than a hundred and fifty-eight geographical miles in diameter, nor at her mean distance more than seventy-nine, and at her greatest distance may not touch the Earth at all. Without the reach of the shadow, and within the limits of the penumbra, which cannot cover more than four thousand five hundred and fifty-two miles of the Earth's surface, there will be a partial eclipse of the sun, and without these limits no eclipse at all. This remarkable phenomenon is caused by the sun's lateral rays in their passage through the dense atmosphere of the Earth, being inflected into the shadow by refraction, and falling pretty copiously upon the moon's disk, are reflected from thence to the eye of the spectator. If the Earth had no atmosphere, the moon's disk would then be as black as in a solar eclipse. A total eclipse of the moon may occasion a privation of her light for an hour and a half, during her total immersion in the shadow; whereas, a total eclipse of the sun can never last in any particular place above four minutes, when the moon is nearest to the Earth, and her shadow thickest. It was accompanied by an Earthquake, which altogether struck the spectators, and among them the centurion and Roman guard, with great fear, and a conviction, that Jesus was the Son of God, Matthew 27:51-54

Grass - Travelers in that country often see grass growing on the housetops, the roofs being flat and coated with Earth trodden hard

Hour (Figurative) - Thus the Apocalypse speaks (Revelation 14:15) of the ‘hour’ for reaping the harvest of the Earth, which is the ‘hour’ of God’s judgment (Revelation 14:7) upon the pagan world.

There are still wars on the Earth, for sin is here, and nation rises against nation; and Israel again in the land will be persecuted by their enemies. This will be followed by a time when they "shall learn war no more," when warlike weapons will be beaten into agricultural instruments, and the Prince of Peace will reign over the whole Earth
Adam - The name implies the Earth, from whence he was formed, which signifies red. (1 Corinthians 15:45) And if we compare what the apostle saith of Christ, (Colossians 1:15) with what is said of Adam, at the creation of the world, (Genesis 1:26) it serves to explain, in what sense we are to limit the expression concerning him, who was formed from the Earth as the first man. Indeed from this Wisdom man, this pattern, the first Earthly man was formed
Give Drink - ” In its first occurrence in the biblical text, shâqâh expresses the idea of “to irrigate,” or “to water”: “But there went up a mist from the Earth, and watered the whole face of the ground” ( Earth and causes plants to grow ( Age - ) That part of the duration of a being or a thing which is between its beginning and any given time; as, what is the present age of a man, or of the Earth?...

Adamah is the Earth in the sense of soil or ground, particularly as being susceptible of cultivation. As to the size of the Earth, the Hebrews had but a very indefinite notion
Ascension - Act of going to heaven in bodily form from Earthly life. It concluded the Earthly ministry of Jesus, allowing eyewitnesses to see both the risen Christ on Earth and the victorious, eternal Christ returning to heaven to minister at the right hand of the Father. The ascension expanded Christ's ministry from its geographically limited Earthly dimensions to its universal heavenly dimensions. The ascension (1) allowed Jesus to prepare a heavenly place for His followers (John 14:2 ), (2) return to the Father (John 16:5 ), (3) send the Holy Spirit to the disciples (John 16:7 ) to bring conviction of sin, open the way to righteousness through faith, and condemn the devil, (4) comfort those suffering for Him through visions of the Ascended One (Acts 7:54-60 ), (5) call persons to fulfill His missionary task (Acts 9:1-18 ), (6) open doors of ministry for His people (2 Corinthians 2:12-14 ), (7) demonstrate God's power and His rule over all who would exercise power and authority on Earth or in heaven (Ephesians 1:20-23 ), (8) give gifts for ministry to His people (Ephesians 4:7-12 ), (9) give hope to troubled followers showing they would join Him in glory (Colossians 3:1-4 ), (10) rescue His servants from persecution so they can preach His gospel (2 Timothy 4:16-18 ), (11) demonstrate that glory, not death, is God's final word for the Son and for disciples (Hebrews 2:9 ), (12) exercise a heavenly priesthood (Hebrews 4:14 ), (13) make revelation of future trials and final victory possible (Revelation 1:1 ), (14) discipline His church so He may have fellowship with it and provide final full fellowship in ruling with Christ (Revelation 3:19-22 ). Contrasted to Christ's act of humbling Himself to move from heaven to Earth and especially to the cross (Philippians 2:5-8 ) is God's act of exalting Jesus to the highest position in the universe, in charge of everything that exists and all that happens
Rainbow - I know not how it is, but so it is, as if by natural instinct, as often as I see that beautiful arch in the heavens called the rainbow, I call to mind what JEHOVAH once said after the deluge: "I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the Earth and it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the Earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the, Earth
Revelation, the - In them the last times are in view, and evil is pointed out in connection with the church: then follows this prophecy, the first part of which concerns the church viewed as a lightbearer on Earth: rejection awaits it as judgement awaits the world. It is evident that "after these" refers to the removal of the entire church from Earth, and not simply to the disappearance of the seven particular churches named. John, who, when Christ was on Earth had leaned on His bosom, seeing Him now in so different an aspect, fell at His feet as dead. " The Lord Himself has with them the prominent place, and the church is kept out of the hour of tribulation which is coming on the whole Earth. The historical development of the church may be said to close with Thyatira; and Philadelphia represents in the latter times of the church's history on Earth faithfulness to the Lord Himself, on the part of those who are seeking to stand morally in the truth of the church. It represents the arrogance of rationalism and higher criticism in the latter days of the church on Earth: Christ is outside but still appealing, knocking for admission to the individual heart. A different section of the book commences here: namely, "the things that shall be after these," events that will occur after the church has ceased to occupy a place on Earth as in Revelation 2 and Revelation 3 . John saw a throne that is in relation to the Earth; and One sitting on the throne like a jasper and a sardine stone: it is God, but so presented as that He could be looked upon. John, in answer to his weeping, is told that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has overcome to open the book of the counsels of God as to the Earth. The horses may represent powers or forces on Earth, and the riders, those who control or turn them to account. A red horse and its rider, who takes peace from the Earth, and they shall kill one another — the scourge of civil war. A pale horse and its rider, who kills with God's sore plagues those on a fourth part of the Earth: this may be a continent. In the first four seals we have seen forces at work, but controlled; now there is a great Earthquake, and the sun, moon, and stars are affected, indicating probably the apostasy, and the break up of the civil governments ordained of God. The prayers of the saints, presented by an angel distinct from those having the seven trumpets, while fragrant before God, bring, as their consequence, judgements on the Earth. A great mountain burning with fire is cast into the sea — some great Earthly power influences the masses with direful effect, and commercial intercourse is affected: cf. A great eagle (as is now read by the editors, instead of 'angel'), cries, "Woe, woe, woe" on those who make the Earth their home. A mighty angel, probably Christ from the description, plants his feet upon (that is, claims) the sea and Earth, and cries with a great voice to which the thunders respond. It is now a question of Christ's rights to the Earth. The witnesses manifest His power, and smite the Earth with plagues. The beast (the Roman power of Revelation 17:8 ) kills the witnesses, and they lie unburied, but they are called up to heaven, and there is in the same hour a great upheaval on Earth. The temple of God was opened in heaven, the ark of His covenant was seen there, and there were judgements on Earth. The devil casts a flood (people) after the woman, but it is swallowed up by the Earthly organisations of men. It blasphemes God, and the dwellers on Earth worship it. In Revelation 13:11 another beast is seen to arise out of the Earth (formed organisation): it appears as a lamb, but speaks as a dragon. It deceives all the Earth and assists the Roman power, working miracles in order that the image of the revived beast may be worshipped: cf. One then, like the Son of man, on a cloud, reaps the Earth, the harvest of which is ripe. The vintage of the Earth is gathered by another angel, and the winepress trodden, blood coming from it reaching to sixteen hundred furlongs, the extent of Palestine. A trinity of evil spirits goes forth to gather the kings of the Earth to the battle of the great day of Almighty God at Harmagedon — mount of Megiddo: cf. Revelation 1-8 speak of the eternal state, when there will be a new heaven and a new Earth

Adam - Mankind is granted a unique status, expressed as being made “in the image” of God, and is given dominion over the Earth and its creatures, that is, made responsible for the Earth.

Thus Genesis 1:1 and Genesis 2:1 together present both sides of the human situation: the unique relationship to God and the essential connection to Earth

Advocate, the, - He is the Paraclete in heaven, who takes up the cause of the saint, and the Holy Spirit is the same on Earth to secure the spiritual welfare of God's people
Millenarians - are those who believe, according to an ancient tradition in the church, grounded on some doubtful texts in the book of Revelation and other scriptures, that our Saviour shall reign a thousand years with the faithful upon Earth after the first resurrection, before the full completion of final happiness; and their name, taken from the Latin word mille, "a thousand," has a direct allusion to the duration of this spiritual empire, which is styled the millennium. A millennium, or a future paradisaical state of the Earth, is viewed by some as a doctrine not of Christian, but of Jewish, origin. The Jews understood several passages of the prophets, as Zechariah 14:16 , &c, of the millennium; in which, according to their carnal apprehensions, the Messiah is to reign on Earth, and to bring all nations within the pale, and under subjection to the ordinances, of the Jewish church. ...
Justin Martyr, the most ancient of the fathers, was a great supporter of the doctrine of the millennium, or that our Saviour shall reign with the faithful upon Earth, after the resurrection, for a thousand years; which he declares was the belief of all orthodox Christians. " During the interregnum in England, in the time of Cromwell, there arose a set of enthusiasts sometimes called Millenarians, but more frequently Fifth Monarchy Men, who expected the sudden appearance of Christ, to establish on Earth a new monarchy or kingdom. They claimed to be the saints of God, and to have the dominion of saints, Daniel 7:27 ; expecting that, when Christ was come into this kingdom, to begin his reign on Earth, they, as his deputies, were to govern all things under him. Some believe that Christ will reign personally on the Earth, and that the prophecies of the millennium point to a resurrection of martyrs and other just men, to reign with him a thousand years in a visible kingdom. Others are inclined to believe that, by the reign of Christ and the saints for a thousand years on Earth, "nothing more is meant than that, before the general judgment, the Jews shall be converted, genuine Christianity be diffused through all nations, and mankind enjoy that peace and happiness which the faith and precepts of the Gospel are calculated to confer on all by whom they are sincerely embraced. Kett, and a host of writers recently, are advocates for the first of these opinions, and contend for the personal reign of Christ on Earth. When these great events, I say, shall come to pass, then shall the kingdom of Christ commence, or the reign of saints upon Earth. '...
Such is the representation of the millennium, as given by those who embrace the opinion of Christ's reigning personally on Earth during the period of one thousand years. ...
The following observations from Jones's Biblical Cyclopaedia are worthy great attention for their sobriety:—Some have supposed that the passage, Revelation 20:4 , is to be taken literally, as importing that at that time Jesus Christ will come, in his human nature, from heaven to Earth, and set his kingdom up here, reigning visibly and personally, with distinguished glory on Earth; that the bodies of the martyrs, and of other eminent Christians will then be raised from the dead, in which they shall live and reign with Christ here on Earth a thousand years. And some suppose, that all the saints, the true friends to God and Christ, who have lived before that time, will then be raised from the dead, and live on Earth perfectly holy, during this thousand years. Others have understood this paragraph of Scripture in a figurative sense; that by this reign of Christ on Earth, is not meant his coming from heaven to Earth, in his human visible nature; but his taking to himself his power, and utterly overthrowing the kingdom of Satan, and setting up his own kingdom throughout the world, which, before this, had been confined to very narrow bounds; subduing all hearts to a willing subjection, and thus reigning generally over the men who shall then be in the world, and live in that thousand years. "The meek shall inherit the Earth. " And they suppose that this revival of the cause of Christ, by the numerous inhabitants of the Earth rising up to a new and holy life, is that which is here called the first resurrection, in distinction front the second, which will consist in the resurrection of the body; whereas this is a spiritual resurrection; a resurrection of the cause of Christ, which had been, in a great degree, dead and lost; a resurrection of the souls of men, by the renovation of the Holy Spirit. To suppose that Christ shall come in his human nature to this Earth, and live here in his whole person visible a thousand years before the day of judgment, appears to be contrary to several passages of Scripture. The coming of Christ, and his appearing at the day of judgment in his human nature, is said to be his second appearance, answering to his first appearance, in his human nature, on Earth, from his birth to his ascension into heaven, which was past. This could not be his appearing the second time, were he thus to appear, and to be bodily present in his human nature on Earth, in the time of the millennium, which is to take place before the day of judgment. But if he were here on Earth, visible in his human nature, and reigning in his glorified body, during the millennium, he would be already here to attend the last judgment, and he could not be properly said to come from heaven, and to be revealed from heaven, because this was done a thousand years before. This is evidently his appearing the second time, for the salvation of all them that look for him; but were he on Earth before this, in the human nature, during the time of the millennium, how could he be said to be revealed, to descend and come from heaven to judge the world?...
3. This is repeatedly promised: "The Earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea;" and this shall take place in that day when the Gentiles shall seek to the branch of the root of Jesse, whose rest shall be glorious, and when "the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, and shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah, from the four corners of the Earth,"...
Isaiah 11:9-12
Host of Heaven - “Heaven” is used in two broad categories: first, it refers to the physical realities of everything that is above the Earth. In Genesis 1:1 , God created two realms: heaven and Earth. ...
The phrase “Host of Heaven” came into use because of the close connection between the realms of Earth and heaven in ancient thought. The celestial bodies were thought to be organized in the same way as Earthly military bodies
Heaven - In the cosmic theory of the ancient world, and of the Hebrews in particular, the Earth was flat, lying between a great pit into which the shades of the dead departed, and the heavens above in which God and the angels dwelt, and to which it came to be thought the righteous went, after having been raised from the dead to live for ever. It was natural to think of the heavens as concave above the Earth, and resting on some foundation, possibly of pillars, set at the extreme horizon ( 2 Samuel 22:9 , Proverbs 8:27-29 ). This conception of heaven as being above a flat Earth underlies many religious expressions which are still current
Amen - ' "He who blesseth himself in the Earth, shall bless himself in the God of 'truth ;' and he that sweareth in the Earth, shall swear by the God of 'truth. As there are responses in heaven, as seen in some of the above texts, so there should be responses on Earth in the assemblies of the saints, and not simply a hearing of prayer and praise
Name - ...
Shêm can be a synonym for “reputation” or “fame”: “Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole Earth” ( Earth is like thy people, even like Israel, whom God went to redeem for a people to himself, and to make a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for thy land …” ( Earth” ( Omnipresence - Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? Do not I fill heaven and Earth, saith the Lord? Am I a God at hand, saith the Lord, and not a God afar off?" "Thus saith the Lord, Behold, heaven is my throne, and the Earth is my footstool. And when we have thus raised our thoughts to the idea of a being, who is not only present throughout a large empire, but throughout our world; and not only in every part of our world, but in every part of all the numberless suns and worlds which roll in the starry heavens,—who is not only able to enliven and actuate the plants, animals, and men who live upon this globe, but countless varieties of creatures every where in an immense universe,—yea, whose presence is not confined to the universe, immeasurable as that is by any finite mind, but who is present every where in infinite space; and who is therefore able to create still new worlds, and fill them with proper inhabitants, attend, supply, and govern them all,—when we have thus gradually raised and enlarged our conceptions, we have the best idea we can form of the universal presence of the great Jehovah, who filleth heaven and Earth. His presence also penetrates every part of our world; the most solid parts of the Earth cannot exclude it; for it pierces as easily the centre of the globe as the empty air. And the inmost recesses of the human heart can no more exclude his presence, or conceal a thought from his knowledge, than the deepest caverns of the Earth. The matter of our world, or the small parts which constitute the air, the Earth, and the waters, is yet continually moved, so as to produce effects of this kind; such are the innumerable herbs, and trees, and fruits which adorn the Earth, and support the countless millions of creatures who inhabit it. There must therefore be constantly present, all over the Earth, a most wise, mighty, and good Being, the author and director of these motions. The sun, the air, the Earth, and the waters, are no more able to move themselves, and produce all that beautiful and useful variety of plants, and fruits, and trees, with which our Earth is covered, than the body of a man, when the soul hath left it, is able to move itself, form an instrument, plough a field, or build a house. If the laying out judiciously and well cultivating a small estate, sowing it with proper grain at the best time of the year, watering it in due season and quantities, and gathering in the fruits when ripe, and laying them up in the best manner,— if all these effects prove the estate to have a manager, and the manager possessed of skill and strength,—certainly the enlightening and warming the whole Earth by the sun, and so directing its motion and the motion of the Earth as to produce in a constant useful succession day and night, summer and winter, seed time and harvest; the watering the Earth continually by the clouds, and thus bringing forth immense quantities of herbage, grain, and fruits,—certainly all these effects continually produced, must prove that a Being of the greatest power, wisdom, and benevolence is continually present throughout our world, which he thus supports, moves, actuates, and makes fruitful. Must not, then, its place be appointed, its motion regulated, and beams darted, by almighty wisdom and goodness, which prevent the sun's ever wandering in the boundless space of the heavens, so as to leave us in disconsolate cold and darkness, or coming so near, or emitting his rays in such a manner, as to burn us up? Must not the great Being who enlightens and warms us by the sun, his instrument, who raises and sends down the vapours, brings forth and ripens the grain and fruits, and who is thus ever acting around us for our benefit, be always present in the sun, throughout the air, and all over the Earth, which he thus moves and actuates?...
This Earth is in itself a dead, motionless mass, and void of all counsel; yet proper parts of it are continually raised through the small pipes which compose the bodies of plants and trees, and are made to contribute to their growth, to open and shine in blossoms and leaves, and to swell and harden into fruit. Could blind, thoughtless particles thus continually keep on their way, through numberless windings, without once blundering, if they were not guided by an unerring hand? Can the most perfect human skill from Earth and water form one grain, much more a variety of beautiful and relishing fruits? Must not the directing mind, who does all this constantly, be most wise, mighty, and benevolent? Must not the Being who thus continually exerts his skill and energy around us, for our benefit, be confessed to be always present and concerned for our welfare? Can these effects be ascribed to any thing below an all-wise and almighty cause? And must not this cause be present wherever he acts? Were God to speak to us every month from heaven, and with a voice loud as thunder declare that he observes, provides for, and governs us; this would not be a proof, in the judgment of sound reason, by many degrees so valid: since much less wisdom and power are required to form such sounds in the air, than to produce these effects; and to give, not merely verbal declarations, but substantial evidences of his presence and care over us. Clarke, and their followers; others have objected to this notion, that it might then be said, God is neither in heaven nor in Earth, but only a part of God in each

because it grows on the Earth and though the Earth is black the lily grows up white, thus showing the transforming power of the Lord
Gog And Magog - ...
In Revelation 20:8 we also read of Gog and Magog attacking "the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city," Jerusalem; but this must not be confounded with the prophecy in Ezekiel, for here they come out of 'the four corners of the Earth;' and the battles do not coincide as to time. There is doubtless an allusion to the names in Ezekiel; 'Gog and Magog,' being symbolical names, are employed to describe all the proud and powerful hordes of post-millennium times, whose number is 'as the sand of the sea,' and whom Satan will collect together from all quarters to attack the kingdom of the Lord Jesus as established on Earth, only to be devoured by fire from heaven: for Satan, when loosed, will not be able to raise up an empire against the Lord
Fuller - ) Chalk, or Earth of some kind, was used to whiten garments. Christ's garments at the transfiguration became "shining" white "as no fuller on Earth could whiten them" (Mark 9:3)
Serpent, Brazen - ...
(2) The brazen serpent lifted up on the pole so as to be visible with its bright brass (which also is typical: Revelation 1:15) to the remotest Israelite answers to Jesus "evidently set forth before the eyes, crucified" (Galatians 3:1), so that "all the ends of the Earth" by "looking unto" Him may "be saved" (Isaiah 45:22), "lifted up from the Earth," and so "drawing all men unto Him" (John 12:32-34)
Peter, Second Epistle of - The day of the Lord was a means to an and, and would make way for the day of God, and the fulfilment of His promise of new heavens and a new Earth, in which righteousness would reside, and in view of which the existing heavens and Earth would pass away
Gehenna - It generally was conceived of as being under the Earth, but it was very much vaster in extent than the Earth
Hide - The intervention of the moon between the Earth and the sun hides the latter from our sight. The people in Turkey hide their grain in the Earth
Lamb - " "And every creature which is in heaven, and on the Earth, and under the Earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb, for ever and ever
Noah - Men became more and more corrupt, and God determined to sweep the Earth of its wicked population (Genesis 6:7 ). ...
On leaving the ark Noah's first act was to erect an altar, the first of which there is any mention, and offer the sacrifices of adoring thanks and praise to God, who entered into a covenant with him, the first covenant between God and man, granting him possession of the Earth by a new and special charter, which remains in force to the present time (Genesis 8:21-9:17 ). As a sign and witness of this covenant, the rainbow was adopted and set apart by God, as a sure pledge that never again would the Earth be destroyed by a flood
Famine And Drought - However, the productiveness of the Earth is related to people's obedience to God. For example, the sins of Adam, Eve, and Cain resulted in unfruitfulness of the Earth (Genesis 3:17-18 ; Genesis 4:12 ). Furthermore, the New Testament reports that famine will be a part of God's coming judgment of the Earth in the last days (Matthew 24:7 ; Revelation 6:8 )
Family - 8:19: “Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the Earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark. In capital cases, where revenge was desired, the entire clan might be taken: “And, behold, the whole family is risen against thine handmaid, and they said, Deliver him that smote his brother, that we may kill him, for the life of his brother whom he slew; and we will destroy the heir also: and so they shall quench my coal which is left, and shall not leave to my husband neither name nor remainder upon the Earth” ( Earth be blessed” ( Circle - In popular use, the line that comprehends the figure, the plane or surface comprehended, and the whole body or solid matter of a round substance, are denominated a circle a ring an orb the Earth. Diurnal circles, are immovable circles supposed to be described by the several stars and other points in the heavens, in their diurnal rotation round the Earth, or rather in the rotation of the Earth round its axis
Reproach - 24:9: “And I will deliver them to be removed into all the kingdoms of the Earth for their hurt, to be a reproach and a proverb, a taunt and a curse, in all places whither I shall drive them. ” Several prophets predicted that Israel’s judgment was partly to be experienced by the humiliating “reproach” of the nations: “And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine, and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the kingdoms of the Earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and a hissing, and a reproach among all the nations whither I have driven them” ( Earth …” ( Noah - ) After the ark had stranded, and the Earth was in a measure dried, Noah offered a burnt- sacrifice to the Lord, of the pure animals that were in the ark; and the Lord was pleased to accept of his offering, and to give him assurance that he would no more destroy the world by water, Genesis 9. He gave Noah power over all the brute creation, and permitted him to kill and eat of them, as of the herbs and fruits of the Earth, except the blood, the use of which was prohibited. According to common opinion, he divided the Earth among his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth
Level - ) Even; flat; having no part higher than another; having, or conforming to, the curvature which belongs to the undisturbed liquid parts of the Earth's surface; as, a level field; level ground; the level surface of a pond or lake. ) An approximately horizontal line or surface at a certain degree of altitude, or distance from the center of the Earth; as, to climb from the level of the coast to the level of the plateau and then descend to the level of the valley or of the sea. ) A line or surface to which, at every point, a vertical or plumb line is perpendicular; a line or surface which is everywhere parallel to the surface of still water; - this is the true level, and is a curve or surface in which all points are equally distant from the center of the Earth, or rather would be so if the Earth were an exact sphere
Prince - ...
The title ‘Prince’ (ἄρχων) is applied to Jesus Christ in Revelation 1:5, ‘firstbegotten (RV_ ‘firstborn’) of the dead, and the prince (RV_ ‘ruler’) of the kings of the Earth’ (cf. The title ‘prince of the kings of the Earth’ corresponds to the ‘King of kings and Lord of lords’ of Revelation 17:14; Revelation 19:16. , with its transference to the Christ of the attributes of the theocratic king, to emphasize the sovereignty of the Exalted Christ over all Earthly potentates. midway between heaven and Earth (cf
Aaron (2) - Christ was indeed divinely appointed: He was prepared for service, in being made like His brethren (Hebrews 2:17), and fitted by His sympathy (Hebrews 4:15) and fidelity to undertake priestly work on their behalf; through His death on the cross He offered Himself as a sacrifice, apparently on Earth and certainly in heaven as a temple not made with hands (Hebrews 9:24); He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him as priest, seeing He ever lives to make priestly intercession for them (Hebrews 7:25). If He were on Earth, He would not be a priest at all, springing as He did from Judah, not from Levi (Hebrews 7:14). He did not hold His office in virtue of Earthly descent, nor was He limited to an Earthly sanctuary, nor did He present to God a sin-offering which could be, or needed to be, frequently repeated (Hebrews 9:24 f. Christ’s priesthood was ‘after the order of Melchizedek’ (Hebrews 6:20), eternal: His sacrifice was a spiritual one, offered once for all; it is impossible to think of the repetition on Earth of that offering which ‘through (the) eternal Spirit’ (Hebrews 9:14) our glorified High Priest presents continually in ‘a more perfect tabernacle’ (Hebrews 9:11) in heaven itself, for us. He was made a priest, not according to any legal enactment belonging to Earth and finding its expression in the flesh; but dynamically, according to the enduring power of an indissoluble life (Hebrews 7:16)
Kingdom, Kingdom of God, Kingdom of Heaven - In many respects the two expressions are identical, but the 'kingdom of heaven' occurs in the gospel by Matthew only, and stands in contrast to the Messiah on Earth. It may be illustrated by the lights which God set in the heavens to give light and to rule on Earth. It is shown that evil would be found in the kingdom, but that Christ will eventually send His angels to gather out of His kingdom all things that offend; then it will be established in power by the Lord Jesus sitting on His own throne, and reigning supreme as Son of man over the Earth, ending by His ultimately giving up the kingdom to the Father, that God may be all in all. Neither will the duration on Earth of the church and the kingdom be the same; the kingdom will be set up in power after the rapture of the church, and will continue during the millennium
Advent, Second - This is simply the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ to this Earth, which naturally implies that He has already been here once. Another distinction to be noticed is that when Christ comes for His saints, including both the living and the dead, He will not actually come to the Earth for them. ...
In other scriptures it is revealed that there will be an interval between the Rapture (the catching away of the saints), and the Lord's coming, to the Earth. ...
That the Lord Jesus will actually come to the Earth is plainly revealed in Acts 1:11 ; "This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven
Antichrist - Now there has been no change of dispensation since this epistle was written, and John wrote much later, from which we learn that the revelation of the antichrist is still future, though doubtless the mystery of iniquity is getting ripe for his appearing; that which hindered and still hinders the manifestation of the antichrist is doubtless the presence of the Holy Spirit on Earth. He will leave the Earth at the rapture of the saints. We get further particulars in Revelation 13:11-18 , where the anti-christian power or kingdom is described as a beast rising out of the Earth, having two horns as a lamb, but speaking as a dragon. He directs the dwellers on the Earth to make an image of the beast (named in ver. We thus see that in the Revelation the anti-christian power called also 'the false prophet' will work with the political head, and with Satan — a trinity of evil — not only in deceiving mankind, but also, in Revelation 16:13-16 , gathering together by their influence the kings of the Earth to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. May His saints be ever on the watch against the many false prophets in the world, 1 John 4:1 , and be loyal to their absent Lord, behold His beauty in the sanctuary, and reproduce Him more down here in their Earthen vessels
Heaven, Heavenly - The present "heavens" with the Earth, are to pass away, 2 Peter 3:10 , "being on fire," 2 Peter 3:12 (see ver. 2 Peter 3:7 ); Revelation 20:11 , and new "heavens" and Earth are to be created, 2 Peter 3:13 ; Revelation 21:1 , with Isaiah 65:17 , e. , in a position of Divine authority), Ephesians 1:20 ; and of the present position of believers in relationship to Christ, Ephesians 2:6 ; where they possess "every spiritual blessing," Ephesians 1:3 ; (c) of Christ as "the Second Man," and all those who are related to Him spirtually, 1 Corinthians 15:48 ; (d) of those whose sphere of activity or existence is above, or in contrast to that of Earth, of "principalities and powers," Ephesians 3:10 ; of "spiritual hosts of wickedness," Ephesians 6:12 , RV, "in heavenly places," for AV, "in high places;" (e) of the Holy Spirit, Hebrews 6:4 ; (f) of "heavenly things," as the subjects of the teaching of Christ, John 3:12 , and as consisting of the spiritual and "heavenly" sanctuary and "true tabernacle" and all that appertains thereto in relation to Christ and His sacrifice as antitypical of the Earthly tabernacle and sacrifices under the Law, Hebrews 8:5 ; 9:23 ; (g) of the "calling" of believers, Hebrews 3:1 ; (h) of heaven as the abode of the saints, "a better country" than that of Earth, Hebrews 11:16 , and of the spiritual Jerusalem, Hebrews 12:22 ; (i) of the kingdom of Christ in its future manifestation, 2 Timothy 4:18 ; (j) of all beings and things, animate and inanimate, that are "above the Earth," Philippians 2:10 ; (k) of the resurrection and glorified bodies of believers, 1 Corinthians 15;49 ; (l) of the "heavenly orbs," 1 Corinthians 15:40 ("celestial," twice, and so rendered here only)
Creation - "Men, and other animals that inhabit the Earth and the seas; all the immense varieties of herbs and plants of which the vegetable kingdom consists; the globe of the Earth, and the expanse of the ocean; these we know to have been produced by his power. ...
The moon, which is in a particular manner connected with our Earth, and even dependent upon it; the sun, and the other planets, with their satellites, which like the Earth circulate round the sun, and appear to derive from him light and heat; those bodies which we call fixed stars, and consider as illuminating and cherishing, with heat each its peculiar system of planets; and the comets which at certain periods surprise us with their appearance, and the nature of whose connection with the general system of Nature, or with any particular system of planets, we cannot pretend to have fully discovered; these are so many more of the Deity's works, from the contemplation of which we cannot but conceive the most awful ideas of his creative power. The other planetary bodies, which seem to be in circumstances nearly analogous to those of our Earth, are surely, as well as it, destined for the habitations of rational intelligent beings. But though these different systems of chronology are so inconsistent, and so slenderly supported, yet the differences among them are so inconsiderable, in comparison with those which arise before us when we contemplate the chronology of the Chinese, the Chaldeans, and the Egyptians, and they agree so well with the general information of authentic history, and with the appearances of nature and of society, that they may be considered as nearly fixing the true period of the creation of the Earth. ...

Bury - To cover with Earth, as seed sown
Lamech - He stands branded as the father of polygamy, the first who dared to violate the sacred command, Genesis 2:24 ; giving way to his unbridled passion, and thus overleaping the divine mound raised by the wisdom of our great Creator; which restraint is enforced by the laws of nature herself, who peoples the Earth with an equal number of males and females, and thereby teaches foolish man that polygamy is incompatible with her wise regulations

Lucifer - He is said to have made the Earth to tremble, and to have shaken kingdoms. The Earth gains instant rest, and by a beautiful figure of rhetoric, is said to break forth into singing. " The territories of the damned are represented as opening to receive a more than ordinary guest, now come to take up his eternal dwelling there; and the dead, and the chief ones of the Earth, who when alive trembled at his power, now all brought together into one common level of horror and misery, are represented as insulting over his calamity. And the taunting compliments from the kings and great men of the Earth, whom the monarch of Babylon had hastened and sent there before their time, is wonderfully conceived, to shew what deep and bitter malignity the conversation of hell is made up of, to aggravate the torments of the damned, and to fill up the full-heaped measure of corrosive and everlasting misery. What a solemn thought, if properly attended to, and yet increasingly more solemn to every inhabitant of the Earth when considered also, that the time of this separation may be the next moment for ought we know, when the disembodied soul shall receive the summons for departure

Foundation - ...
The Old Testament pictured the Earth (dry land) as resting on foundations (2 Samuel 22:16 ; Psalm 18:15 ; Psalm 82:5 ). God's great power is expressed in the images of the Earth's foundations trembling (Isaiah 24:18 ) or being exposed (2 Samuel 22:16 ) before the Almighty. “From the foundations of the Earth” means from the time of creation (Isaiah 40:21 ; Matthew 13:35 ; John 17:24 )

Fell - There comes a time when GOD cleans out the heavens of all these powerful, wicked ones and they are cast to the Earth. " In the passage under consideration, as also in Revelation 8:10, we are informed that these mighty and wicked angelic beings are permitted to come upon this Earth from their position of power to injure and harm the inhabitants

Joseph bowed himself with his face to the Earth
Dust - The former means properly dust stirred up or blown about, as ‘a cloud of dust’; the latter simply Earth or soil thrown down or raised in a heap. This is probably meant to show that Earth herself joins in the petition for redress of intolerable wrongs
Age, - The time when Christ was on Earth is in John's first epistle repeatedly called 'the beginning:' the beginning of Christianity, though it is not called an age. Our Lord not only spoke of the age in which He was on Earth, but referred some events to 'the end or completion of the age
Sack - ...
Sack of Earth, in fortification, is a canvas bag filled with Earth, used in making retrenchments in haste
Salt - It is found native in the Earth, or it is produced by evaporation and crystallization from water impregnated with saline particles. In chimistry, a body compounded of an acid united to some base, which may be either an alkali, an Earth, or a metallic oxyd. Accordingly, salts are alkaline, Earthy, or metallic
Water - It is reposited in the Earth in inexhaustible quantities, where it is preserved fresh and cool, and from which it issues in springs, which form streams and rivers. But the great reservoirs of water on the globe are the ocean, seas and lakes, which cover more than three fifths of its surface, and from which it is raised by evaporation, and uniting with the air in the state of vapor, is wafted over the Earth, ready to be precipitated in the form of rain, snow or hail
Passion Passions - The adjective ὀμοιοπαθής, ‘of like passions,’ is entirely neutral; it is used in Acts 14:15 of Paul and Barnabas, and in James 5:17 of Elijah; in 4 Maccabees 12:11 of men; and rather curiously in Wisdom of Solomon 7:3 of the Earth (AV_ ‘which is of like nature’ [1], RV_ ‘kindred,’ RVm_ ‘of like qualities’); the meaning seems to be that the Earth is mother of all (cf
Creation - His creative activities proceeded in orderly and methodical fashion toward the fulfillment of His purpose to create “good heavens” and “a good Earth. Luke testified that the living God “made heaven, and Earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein” (Acts 14:15 ). God began by calling Abram out of Ur, by entering into a covenant with him, and by making promises to bless him and to bless all the families of the Earth through him. Even destroying the tower of Babel, confusing the people's language, and scattering them over the face of the Earth did not stop the spread of sin (Genesis 11:1 ). ...
Isaiah reminded weary exiles that the God he proclaimed as their Redeemer and Sustainer was “the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the Earth” (Isaiah 40:28 ). He went on to declare God's plan to “create new heavens and a new Earth” as well as a new people (Isaiah 65:17-18 ). Paul and Barnabas set the record straight as they pointed to “the living God which made heaven, and Earth, and the sea, and all things that are therein” (Acts 14:15 ). Isaiah employed “create” in reference to “new heavens and a new Earth” as well as “Jerusalem” and “her people” (Isaiah 65:17-18 ). God created “good” heavens and a “good” Earth
King, Christ as - His Earthly ministry then amplified these themes (Matthew 4:17 ; Luke 1:32-33 ). He is in control of the natural universe as He demonstrated during His Earthly ministry (Mark 4:35-41 ). We might say the door of heaven opened a bit so that for a brief moment His true kingship appeared to people on Earth. Christ will rule over all things in heaven and on Earth. At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, in heaven and on Earth and under the Earth, and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:9-11 )
Providence of God - Not only is this true on Earth; this is true among the so-called gods. It is impossible that anything or anyone, whether in heaven or on Earth, whether supernatural being, king, or simple peasant, should imagine that they are self-sufficient or answerable only to themselves (Isaiah 45:11-12 ; Jeremiah 37:17-23 ; Daniel 4:35 ; Revelation 20:11-13 ). Our deepest prayer should be, as Jesus taught us, "your will be done on Earth" (Matthew 6:10 ). From beginning to end, from heaven to Earth, from animate to inanimate, from individuals to nations, from hours to ages, from weeds to wheat, from birth to death, from catastrophe to calm—everything is within the loving presence and involvement of the heavenly father. They do his bidding under both ordinary and extraordinary circumstances, whether supporting Earth functions for the sustenance of life or crashing down judgment upon evil. The Earth itself is also included. God works his will through Earthquakes (Job 9:6 ; Isaiah 13:13 ), famine (Leviticus 26:18-20 ; Amos 4:6 ), drought (Psalm 107:33-34 ; Amos 4:7-8 ), fire (Ezekiel 20:45-48 ; Amos 7:4 ), plagues and calamities (Exodus 9:1-4 ; Ezekiel 38:22 ), floods (Genesis 6:17 ), and normal supply of water (Psalm 104:10-13 ; 107:35 ). God rules the destiny of all the peoples of the Earth and of his people Israel in particular. God also guides the destinies of all the nations of the Earth. He has foreseen all that will take place in the course of time (Isaiah 22:11 ; 44:7 ), guides the national destinies of the peoples of the Earth (Amos 9:7 ), uses them in his service (Job 12:23 ; Isaiah 10:5-14 ; 1618542339_49 ), and makes the choice as to who will do what in the accomplishment of his purposes (Isaiah 49:1-7 ; 54:16 ; Daniel 2:21 ; 4:34-35 ). Just as with the formation, growth, existence, fortunes, and destiny of the world as a whole, the nations of the Earth, and Israel in particular, so is it with the individual
Gospel, the, - It was good news to Abraham, when called out by God to be blessed by Him, to be told that he should have a son in his old age; that his seed should possess the land, and that in his Seed should all the nations of the Earth be blessed. and was preached by the Lord Jesus when on Earth. It embraced more than salvation, great as that is, for he was desirous of making known "the mystery of the gospel," which separates believers from the first man of the Earth, and associates them with Christ glorified in heaven
High - Extending a great distance above the surface of the Earth elevated lofty of great altitude as a high mountain a high tower. Rising, or having risen, or being far above the Earth elevated lofty as a high flight the clouds are high in the atmosphere. Thou, Lord, art high above all the Earth
Haggai - God had been dealing with them in providence, withholding the fruits of the Earth; but they understood it not, until the prophet bade them consider their ways. When asked by whose permission they were building the house, they nobly said, "We are the servants of the God of heaven and Earth. God is going to shake the heavens and the Earth: "the desire of all nations shall come" — doubtless referring to Christ in an objective sense
Animals, Clean And Unclean - 'Every creeping thing that creepeth upon the Earth' was unclean whatsoever goeth upon the belly, and whatsoever goeth upon all fours, or hath a multitude of feet, among all creeping things, was unclean. Everything that creepeth upon the Earth was unclean: the Earth is under the curse because of sin, and there must be a moral rising above it
Seismology - (Greek: seismos, shaking) ...
A science immediately concerned with every vibratory movement of the Earth's crust consequent upon the release of subterranean forces. Indirectly its researches are extended to problems on the physics of the Earth. The original seismoscope for the detection of Earthquakes assembled by a Chinese named Choko in 134, was first modified by Jean Hautefeuille, French physicist and Catholic priest. His findings, published in 1872, read: ...
(a) microseismic movements of an isolated pendulum often occur simultaneously with distant Earthquakes
(b) others occur during continued barometric depressions
(c) these movements are a maximum in the winter and a minimum in the summer. He also claims that it gave encouragement to the inauguration of the first journal devoted to the "science of the endogenous forces of the Earth. He was the first by his electromagnetic seismograph to record Earth tremors insensible to human beings, and to use the term seismograph. Ufficio Central di Meteorologia e Geodinamico, he located as many as 67 seismoscopes in the several meteorological stations throughout Italy and founded the fortnightly Supplemento on Earthquakes of the Annali in 1889. Detailed to El Salvador in charge of a military mission in 1881, he devoted his leisure hours to the study of the Earthquakes of this seismic country
Worm - and numerous animals found in the Earth, and in water, particularly in the sea, as the Earth-worm or lumbricus, the hair-worm or gordius, the teredo, or worm that bores in to the bottom of ships, &c. Intestina, including the proper intestinal worms the Earth-worm, the hair-worm, the teredo, and some other marine worms Mollusca, including the slug, and numerous soft animals inhabiting the water, particularly the sea Testacea, including all the proper shell-fish Zoophyta or compound animals, including corals, polypes, and spunges and Infusoria, or simple microscopic animlacules
Altar - (Genesis 12:7 ; Exodus 17:15,16 ) Altars were most probably originally made of Earth. The law of Moses allowed them to be made of either Earth or unhewn stones. As the priests were forbidden to ascend the altar by steps, (Exodus 20:26 ) it has been conjectured that a slope of Earth led gradually up to the ledge from which they officiated
New Creation - ...
Then, repeating and enlarging on the themes of newness and renewal, chapters 65,66 declare God's intention to "create new heavens and a new Earth" (65:17). The punishment of the exile was replaced by the promise of renewal of the covenant and the establishment of God's kingdom on Earth. These extracanonical writings picked up on the theme introduced in the last chapters of Isaiah of the creation of a new heavens and new Earth. Similarly, Jubilee 1:29, which casts this message of hope in the form of a revelation from God to Moses on Mount Sinai, speaks of "the day of the new creation, when heaven and Earth will be renewed. " In 4:26 the term "new creation" appears to have become a technical term within the vocabulary of this stream of Jewish eschatology ("the Garden of Eden, and the Mount of the East, Mount Sinai, and Mount Zion will be sanctified in the new creation"); connected with the concept are the ideas of the purification of the Earth and God's people from sin. That the early church also believed in the ultimate renovation or re-creation of the heavens and the Earth at the close of history is clear from 2 Peter 3:13 and Revelation 21:1-5 . The idea of a new heavens and Earth or of a renewal of the universe may be behind Paul's concept. Towner...

Church - This body is on Earth that the graces of the Head may be displayed in it. If the assembly has become like a great house, where there are vessels of gold and silver, as well as of wood and of Earth (2 Timothy 2:20 ), the believer is encouraged to purge himself from the latter — the dishonourable vessels — that he may be a vessel unto honour, sanctified and meet for the Master's use, and prepared unto every good work. ...
The church will continue on Earth until the rapture, revealed in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 . As there were saints on Earth before the church was formed, so there will be saints on the Earth after the rapture: all will be equally saved, but all will not forma part of the church of God as revealed in scripture
Creation - The scientist may speak of the sun as the centre of the solar system, with the Earth a minor satellite of the sun, and the moon a minor satellite of the Earth. The Bible, by contrast, speaks of the heavens and the Earth from the viewpoint of ordinary observers.

Citizenship - So believers, though absent from their heavenly city in body, still enjoy its civic privileges and protection; pilgrims on Earth, citizens of heaven (Ephesians 2:6; Galatians 4:26; 1618542339_53; Hebrews 11:13-16; Hebrews 12:22; Revelation 21:2; Revelation 21:10; Luke 10:20)
Imitation: of Good Men Its Limit - But is there not more than a possibility that what we ridicule in the kingdoms of Earth may have its counterpart in the church?

Earthquake - A convulsion of the Earth common in volcanic regions, and well known in all parts of the world; probably occasioned by the action of internal heat or fire. Scripture speaks of several Earthquakes, Numbers 16:1-50 1 Kings 19:11,12 . A very memorable Earthquake was that at our Savior's death, Matthew 27:51 , which some suppose extended throughout the world. Palestine has been often visited by Earthquakes. Earthquakes were among the calamities foretold as connected with the destruction of Jerusalem, Matthew 24:7 ; and history proves the truth of the prediction. ...

Revelation 6:5 (b) This black horse probably represents the famine and the sorrow which would prevail on the Earth as a punishment for the wickedness and the evil being practiced
Seasons - When God created the lights in the firmament He said, "Let them be for signs and for seasons," and it is well known that the different seasons on the Earth are in great measure caused by the days being longer or shorter, and thus having more or less of the heat of the sun. After the flood, God declared that while the Earth remained the seasons should continue, Genesis 8:22 these fall approximately thus:...

In contrast to all this the announcement is made that "The Earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the [1] sea. The prophet is assured that "The Lord is in his holy temple: let all the Earth keep silence before him
Glory - 4:2, the word identifies the fruit of the Earth as the “beauty” or “adornment” of the survivors of Israel. ...
This word represents the “honor” of a nation, in the sense of its position before God: "[3] cast down from heaven unto the Earth the beauty [4] of Israel …” ( Sun - Something “under the sun” is life lived on the Earth apart from God in contrast to life lived on Earth with a proper relationship with God ( Olives, Mount of - Perhaps no spot on Earth unites so fine a view, with so many memorials of the most solemn and important events.

Famine, which may arise from a dearth in the land, or by a city being besieged. ...
Besides these there are in various parts of the Earth conflagrations, Earthquakes, eruptions, cyclones, avalanches, floods, frosts, shipwrecks, sea-waves, etc. But beside this providential government, there are often direct judgements, hence the prophet said, "When thy judgements are in the Earth, the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. ...

the Son of man comes. After the Church has been taken to glory, Christ will still have His own servants doing His work upon the Earth, such as His two witnesses in Revelation 11:3 ; cf
Devil - All we know of his original state as an archangel of light is that he lost it through pride and restless ambition, and that he had some special connection, possibly as God's vicegerent over this Earth and the animal kingdom; thereby we can understand his connection and that of his subordinate fallen angels with this Earth throughout Scripture, commencing with his temptation of man to his characteristic sin, ambition to be "as gods knowing good and evil;" only his ambition seems to have been that of power, man's that of knowledge. He and his angels range through the air and the Earth during this period (Ephesians 2:2; Ephesians 6:12). "Knowing that he hath but a short time" (Revelation 12), in "great wrath" he concentrates his power on the Earth, especially toward the end, when he is to lose his standing against Israel and expulsion shall be executed on him and his by Michael (Revelation 12:7-9; Daniel 12:1; Zechariah 3, where Joshua the high priest represents "Jerusalem," whose "choice" by the Lord is the ground of the Lord's rebuke to Satan). Having failed to defeat God's purpose of making this Earth the kingdom of Christ and His transfigured saints, by means of the beast, the harlot, and finally Antichrist, who is destroyed instantly by Christ's manifestation in glory, Satan is bound in the bottomless pit for a thousand years during which he ceases to be the persecutor or else seducer of the church and "the god and prince of the world" that "lieth in the wicked one. " Though judicially "cast down to hell" with his sinning angels, "and delivered into chains of darkness to be reserved unto judgment" (2 Peter 2:4), he is still free on Earth to roam to the length of his chain, like a chained dog, but no further. He cannot hurt God's elect; his freedom of range in the air and on Earth is that of a chained prisoner under sentence
Creation - "In the beginning God created" the world, "the heaven and the Earth" (Genesis 1:1): "In the beginning the Word WAS" (John 1:1). "Now no plant of the field was yet in the Earth, and no herb of the field had yet sprouted forth, for the Lord God had not caused it to ram," etc. The Earth already had brought forth grass (Genesis 1:11); but no cultivated land and no vegetables fit for man's use existed yet; "plant," "field," "grew," do not occur in Genesis 1. But the high antiquity of the Earth is expressly taught in Psalms 90:2, where God's formation of "the Earth" in general is distinguished from that of "the (Hebrew tebel ) habitable world," Greek oikoumenee (Psalms 102:25; Proverbs 8:22). 1:2 intervened the vast geological periods, and that these are undescribed in Genesis 1; and that Genesis 1:2 describes the chaotic state which succeeded the last geological period before the Earth's preparation for man; and that the description of the six days refers to this preparation. But geology seems to oppose any such state of the Earth intervening between the preceding age and that of man's creation as could be described as" without form (desolate) and void. Thus, we seem led to the conclusion (2) that the stage in the Earth's progress when it became surrounded with chaotic waters (how long after "the beginning" we know not), described in Genesis 1:2, is that which existed before the arrangement of its surface took place. "...
God's creating this dark and desolate state of the Earth was not in vain, but that in due time it might be "inhabited" (Isaiah 45:18). ...
God's dividing the light from the darkness, and calling the light Day and the darkness Night, is the Mosaic phrase which marks His communicating rotatory motion to the mass, so that the Earth revolved on its axis, from whence now results the division of day and night; a result however not then ensuing until the sun concentrated the diffused light in itself on the fourth day, when accordingly again the division of day and night is mentioned. The figure of the Earth is that naturally assumed by a plastic mass revolving about its axis; also its traces of intense heat accord with the nebular theory as modified by revelation; also the sun's state as a nebulous star which has not yet gathered up the whole of the original nebula. ...
At the beginning of THE SECOND DAY the Earth had become separated from the gradually condensing mass of the solar system, and formed into a sphere. God's introduction of OXYGEN into active operation produced air and water in our Earth, which before the second day had consisted of a fused heterogeneous mass. Almost half of the Earth's crust consists of oxygen, which enters into the composition of every rock and metallic ore. The steam of the Earth floating at the second day's commencement would soon lose its heat by radiation into space, and would descend to the surface as rain. This answers to God's command on the third day, "Let the Earth sprout sprouts ('the herb seeding seed,'" and the fruit trees yielding fruit, etc. The great heat was derived from other sources than the sun, perhaps from the interior of the Earth. ...
On THE FOURTH DAY the concentration of light and heat in the sun was so far completed that he became the luminary of the system which heretofore had derived its light and heat from other sources; possibly the light now in the sun had existed as a nebulous ring warming the planets within it, as the nebula ring in Lyra; or as diffused luminous matter, filling a space which included the Earth's orbit. Pusey (Daniel, preface, 19) thinks that the condition of the Earth "without form and void" was such as God, who made all things "very good," never created (Genesis 1:2); then for an undefined period (Genesis 1:3) "the Spirit of God was brooding (Hebrew) upon the face of the waters" of the dark and disordered "deep. " Then followed successive action in God's remodeling the Earth for man's habitation. Possibly the order of Creation of the whole world in six vast periods, called "days," was repeated in six literal days in preparing the Earth for man, its noblest occupant, "the minister and interpreter of nature" (Bacon)
Noah - ...
When "the salt of the Earth lost its savour" universal corruption set in. "There were giants in the Earth in those days": nephilim , from a root to fall, "fallers on others," "fellers," tyrants; applied in Numbers 13:33 to Canaanites of great stature. " "The Earth was corrupt before God, and filled with violence through them" (Genesis 6:11; Genesis 6:13). The regeneration of the creature (the animal and material world) finally with man, body as well as soul, is typified by Noah and the animals in the ark and the renewed Earth, on which they entered (Romans 8:18-25; Revelation 21:1; 2 Peter 3:13; Matthew 19:28). above the sea, for 15 cubits water above it would submerge the whole Earth. Noah successively sent, to ascertain the state of the Earth, at intervals of seven days, a raven which rested on the ark but never entered it, wandering up and down and feeding on the floating caresses (emblem of the restless worldly spirit), and a dove, which finding no rest for the sole of her foot returned and Noah put forth his hand and took her and pulled her in unto him into the ark (emblem of the soul first drawn by Jesus to Himself: John 6:44; John 10:28-29); next she brought a fresh olive leaf (emblem of peace and the Holy Spirit, the earnest of our inheritance: Ephesians 1:13-14), which can live under a flood more than most trees; Theophrastus (Hist. At the third sending she returned no more (the emblem of the new heavens and Earth which shall be after the fiery deluge, 2 Peter 3:1-13; Romans 8:21, when the ark of the church to separate us from the world shall be needed no more, Revelation 21:1-22); contrast Isaiah 57:20 with Matthew 3:16; Matthew 11:29. As Deucalion threw the bones Of mother Earth behind his back, and they became men, so the Tamanaki on the Orinoco represent the surviving man to have thrown the palm fruit. The bright Earth to a waste was turned. The flood destroyed all life from the face of the Earth . Not that there is insufficiency of water to submerge the Earth, nay the water is to the land as three-fifths to two-fifths; a universal flood might have been for 150 days, and yet leave no trace discernible now. "As God swore the waters of Noah should no more go over the Earth," so He swears He will, after His mercy returns to Israel, "no more be angry with nor rebuke her" (Isaiah 54:9). ...
Yet the Earth was deluged by that water out of which it had originally risen; (2 Peter 3:6) "by which (plural Greek) heavens and Earth, in respect to the waters which flowed together from both, the then world perished, in respect to its occupants, men and animals, and its existing order" (kosmos ); for "the fountains of the great deep were broken up" from the Earth below, and "the windows of heaven above were opened. So "the heavens and the Earth which are now, by the same word (which first made the existing order of men and animals, and then destroyed them) are kept in store, reserved unto fire (stored up within our Earth, and the action of which appears in our igneous reeks once in a state of fusion, also in the sun our central luminary) against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. " Noah as second head of mankind receives God's blessing (Genesis 9), the first part of it the repetition of that on Adam (Genesis 1:28), "be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the Earth," which blessing had been marred by man's sin
Psalms, Book of - The Psalms may be called 'the manual of the Earthly choir. " Man is blessed on Earth, and Jehovah is praised from Earth. Christ must be looked for everywhere, either in what He personally passed through, or in His sympathy with His people Israel, which can only end in His bringing them into full blessing on Earth, when He will be hailed as "Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace. ...
In Psalm 2 (and Psalm 1 and Psalm 2 may be said to be introductory to the whole) we have Christ rejected by Jew and Gentile, yet set as King in Zion, and declared to be the Son of God, having the Earth for His possession, and judging His enemies, the nations. In a wider sense Psalm 1 to 8 are introductory; from Psalm 3 to Psalm 7 giving the principles that follow on the rejection of Christ in Psalm 1 and Psalm 2 , and Psalm 8 giving His exaltation as Son of man , ending with "O Jehovah our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the Earth. " Psalm 16 brings in the personal excellence of Christ and His association with the 'excellent in the Earth. At the close of this book the Psalmist in the doxology arrives at, "Let the whole Earth be filled with his glory. It is the introduction of the First-begotten into the Earth, announced by the cry of the remnant
End - abuccoc), the chasm of fresh water at the edge of the Earth (the Earth was viewed as a flat surface with four corners and surrounded by fresh water). But this relationship is highly unlikely, since none of the biblical uses refers to an area beyond the edge of the Earth. 30:4: “Who hath gathered the wind in his fists? Who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends [1] of the Earth?” (cf. In other contexts, 'ephes means the “territory” of the nations other than Israel: “… With them he shall push the people together to the ends of the Earth …” ( Earth for thy possession” ( Earth” in such contexts represents all the peoples of the Earth besides Israel
Face - Figuratively, it is used in reference to the face of the Earth (Genesis 1:29 ), waters (Genesis 1:2 ), sky (Matthew 16:3 ), and moon (Job 26:9 ). The face (eye) of the Earth is the visible surface of the Earth (Exodus 10:5 , Exodus 10:15 ), and the face of the waters is that surface which is seen (Genesis 1:2 )
French Prophets - Their message was (and they were to proclaim it as heralds to the Jews, and every nation under heaven, beginning at England, ) that the grand jubilee, the acceptable year of the Lord, the accomplishment of those numerous Scriptures concerning the new heaven and the new Earth, the kingdom of the Messiah, the marriage of the Lamb, the first resurrection, or the new Jerusalem descending from above, were now even at the door; that this great operation was to be wrought on the part of man by spiritual arms only, proceeding from the mouths of those who should by inspiration, or the mighty gift of the Spirit, be sent forth in great numbers to labour in the vineyard; that this mission of his servants should be witnessed to by signs and wonders from heaven, by a deluge of judgments on the wicked universally throughout the world, as famine, pestilence, Earthquakes, &c. that the exterminating angels shall root out the tares, and there shall remain upon Earth only good corn; and the works of men being thrown down, there shall be but one Lord, one faith, one heart, one voice among mankind. They declared that all the great things they spoke of would be manifest over the whole Earth within the term of three years
Earthquake - EARTHQUAKE. From the region of the Dead Sea northward along the Jordan valley and as far as Damascus the whole country must have been visited by tremendous Earthquakes in prehistoric ages. σείω, ‘to shake’) is used of an Earthquake (Matthew 24:7; Matthew 27:54; Matthew 28:2, Mark 13:8, Luke 21:11), and once (Matthew 27:51) the idea is expressed by the phrase ἡ γῆ ἐσεισθη (Authorized and Revised Versions ‘the Earth did quake’). Though specifically applied to an Earthquake, σεισμός properly has a wider connotation: thus in Matthew 8:24 it is used of a tempest (σεισμὸς μέγας ἑγένετο ἑν τῆ θαλασσκ). Hence Alford thinks that in Matthew 28:2 it denotes not an Earthquake, but the ‘shock’ produced by the rolling away of the stone from the sepulchre. Recorded Earthquakes. —Of these there are two, namely, the Earthquakes at the Crucifixion and the Resurrection (Matthew 27:51; Matthew 27:54; Matthew 28:2). The historicity of these Earthquakes is disputed. Matthew in regard to the darkness and the rending of the veil, apparently know nothing of an Earthquake at the Crucifixion [1], and they are equally silent in the case of the Resurrection. ) quotes a statement in the Gemara that some forty years before the destruction of Jerusalem the heavy gates of the temple were mysteriously flung open about midnight at the Passover; but it would seem that sufficient evidence of Earthquake shocks being felt in or near Jerusalem at the date in question is wanting. Earthquakes are frequently accompanied by a ‘strange, bewildering darkness’ (Plumptre, Bibl. : ‘The Earth, which trembled with horror at the death of Christ, as it were leaped with joy at the Resurrection’). Predicted Earthquakes. And this actually came about: between the Crucifixion and the destruction of Jerusalem the Earthquake was frequent; the Earth was a prey to the most violent convulsions (Godet, St
Death - The word mâveth occurs frequently as an antonym of hayyim (“life”): “I call heaven and Earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live …” ( Earth; it is an aspect of God’s judgment on man: “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” ( Earth: for the Lord hath spoken it” ( Day - The word represents the period of “daylight” as contrasted with nighttime: “While the Earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” ( Earth when they were created, in the day [1] that the Lord God made the Earth and the heavens
Naaman - He appears to have been a Gentile idolater; but being miraculously cured of his leprosy by the power of the God of Israel, and the direction of his Prophet Elisha, he renounced his idolatry, and acknowledged this God to be the only true God: "Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the Earth, but in Israel," 2 Kings 5:15 , and promised, for the time to come, that he would worship none other but Jehovah, 2 Kings 5:17 . He also requested the prophet, that he might have two mules' load of Earth to carry home with him from the land of Israel, most probably intending to build an altar with it in his own country; which seems, indeed, to be implied in the reason with which he enforces his request: "Shall there not, I pray thee, be given to thy servant two mules' burden of Earth; for thy servant will henceforth offer neither burnt-offering nor sacrifice to other gods but unto Jehovah
Throne - The Scripture commonly represents the Lord as sitting upon a throne; sometimes it is said that the heaven is his throne, and the Earth his footstool, Isaiah 66:1 . " And Stewart observes, "We marched toward the emperor with our music playing, till we came within about eighty yards of him, when the old monarch, alighting from his horse, prostrated himself on the Earth to pray, and continued some minutes with his face so close to the Earth, that, when we came up to him, the dust remained upon his nose
Brahmins - After receiving his sentence, he wanders about the Earth for twelve months, as an aerial being or ghost; and then takes a body suited to his future condition, whether he ascend to the gods, or suffer in a new body, or be hurled into some hell. This is the doctrine of several "pooranus;" others maintain, that immediately after death and judgment, the person suffers the pains of hell, and removes his sin by suffering; and then returns to the Earth in some bodily form. " Here all the vicious passions are personified, or rather deified: the quarrels and licentious intrigues of the gods fill these places with perpetual uproar while their impurities are described with the same literality and gross detail, as similar things are talked of among these idolaters on Earth
Bouddhists - The Bouddhists do not believe in a First Cause: they consider matter as eternal; that every portion of animated existence has in itself its own rise, tendency, and destiny; that the condition of creatures on Earth is regulated by works of merit and demerit; that works of merit not only raise individuals to happiness, but, as they prevail, exalt the world itself to prosperity; while, on the other hand, when vice is predominant, the world degenerates till the universe itself is dissolved. The Bouddhists are taught that there are four superior heavens which are not destroyed at the end of "kulpu," that below these there are twelve other heavens, followed by six inferior heavens; after which follows the Earth; then the world of snakes; and then thirty-two chief hells; to which are to be added, one hundred and twenty hells of milder torments. Those who perform works of merit are admitted to the heavens of the different gods, or are made kings or great men on Earth; and those who are wicked are born in the forms of different animals, or consigned to different hells
Altar - Altars were most probably originally made of Earth. The law of Moses allowed them to be made of either Earth or unhewn stones. As the priests were forbidden to ascend the altar by steps, Exodus 20:26, it has been conjectured that a slope of Earth led gradually up to the ledge from which they officiated
Apostle - (one sent forth ), in the New Testament originally the official name of those twelve of the disciples whom Jesus chose to send forth first to preach the gospel and to be with him during the course of his ministry on Earth. Our Lord chose them early in his public career They seem to have been all on an equality, both during and after the ministry of Christ on Earth. Even at the removal of our Lord from the Earth they were yet weak in their knowledge, (Luke 24:21 ; John 16:12 ) though he had for so long been carefully preparing and instructing them

" Rome, or "mystical Babylon," is "that great city which reigneth over the kings of the Earth" (17:18)
Chiliasm - Justin Martyr believed in the Earthly reign of Christ, but knew that some orthodox Christians did not. Augustine may be said to have given the death-blow to the chiliastic expectation in the early Church by his identification of the Church with the Kingdom of God on Earth; and throughout the Middle Ages his view obtained. The fanatics among the reforming sects, particularly the Anabaptists at Münster, expected the speedy establishment of Christ on Earth, apparently taking some steps towards preparation therefor

Isaiah speaks of the Earth casting out the dead and Daniel prophesies that those who sleep in dust shall awake (Isaiah 26:19 ; Daniel 12:2 ). Just as the fall of Adam brought a curse on the Earth, the resurrection of the body has consequences of cosmic proportions
Sea of Glass - Moreover, in the Babylonian cosmogony the heavenly universe is divided into three parts corresponding to those of the Earthly universe, the third and lowest division being the heavenly ocean (cf. ): ‘Afterwards, the fire and halo melt the metal of Shatvaîrô, in the hills and mountains, and it remains on this Earth like a river. The celestial universe is the counterpart of the Earthly. -The central motive in the Seer’s vision is certainly the relation between heaven and Earth. The apparently confused and disorderly sequence of events on Earth is really being ordered and determined by what takes place in heaven. As the final tribulation draws to a close, that sea mingled with fire symbolizes the source of the throne’s judgment on the Earth below. Finally it becomes the source of the healing and purifying streams for the redeemed Earth
Man - By some he is defined thus: "He is the head of the animal creation; a being who feels, reflects, thinks, contrives, and acts; who has the power of changing his place upon the Earth at pleasure; who possesses the faculty of communicating his thoughts by means of speech, and who has dominion over all other creatures on the face of the Earth. Man was made last of all the creatures, being the chief and master-piece of the whole creation on Earth. He is a compendium of the creation, and therefore is sometimes called a microcosm, a little world, the world in miniature; something of the vegetable, animal, and rational world meet in him; spirit and matter; yea, heaven and Earth centre in him; he is the bond that connects them both together. It is also made erect, to distinguish it from the four-footed animals, who look downward to the Earth

Thus at the present time and so far as this Earth is concerned, where the King is and where His rule is acknowledged, is, first, in the heart of the individual believer, Acts 4:19 ; Ephesians 3:17 ; 1 Peter 3:15 ; and then in the churches of God, 1 Corinthians 12:3,5,11 ; 14:37 ; cp. ' He is everywhere and above all dispensations, whereas 'the heavens' are distinguished from the Earth, until the Kingdom comes in judgment and power and glory (Revelation 11:15 , RV) when rule in heaven and on Earth will be one. ), heaven is in antithesis to Earth, and the phrase is limited to the Kingdom in its Earthly aspect for the time being, and is used only dispensationally and in connection with Israel
Promise - ...
Promise Embraces Both Declaration and Deed God's promise begins with a declaration by God; it covers God's future plan for not just one race, but all the nations of the Earth; and it focuses on the gifts and deeds that God will bestow on a few to benefit the many. These words and deeds of God began to constitute the continuously unfolding divine plan by which all the peoples and nations of the Earth would benefit from that day to this. A lad taken “from the pasture” (2 Samuel 7:8 NIV) would be given a name equal to “the greatest men of the Earth” ( 2 Samuel 7:9 NIV); indeed, his offspring would be seated at God's “right hand” ( Psalm 110:1 ) and inherit the nations (Psalm 2:8 ). He would send His new David, new Temple, new Elijah, new heavens and new Earth—but all in continuity with what He had pledged long ago!...
The New Testament Enlarges the Ancient Promises The New Testament promises may be gathered into these groups. ...
There are other subjects related to God's promise: rest (Hebrews 4:1 ); the new covenant with its prospect of an eternal inheritance (Hebrews 9:15 ); the new heavens and new Earth (2 Peter 3:13 ); the resurrection (Acts 26:6 ); the blessing of numerous descendants (Hebrews 6:14 ); the emergence of an unshakable kingdom (Hebrews 12:28 ), and Gentiles as recipients of the same promise (Ephesians 2:11-13 ). ...

Transfiguration, the - (The event in the Earthly life of Christ which marks the culminating point in his public ministry, and stands midway between the temptation in the wilderness and the agony in Gethsemane, (Matthew 17:1-13 ; Mark 9:2-13 ; Luke 9:28-36 ) Place . --
It served as a solemn inauguration of the history of the passion and final consummation of Christ's work on Earth. Both meet in Jesus Christ; he is the connecting link between the Old and New Testaments, between heaven and Earth, between the kingdom of grace and the kingdom of glory. Moses and Elijah, the law and the promise, types and shadows, pass away; the gospel, the fulfillment, the substance Christ remains--the only one who can relieve the misery of Earth and glorify our nature, Christ all in all
Giants - Νephilim ; Hebrew "those who fall on" men; men of violence, robbers, tyrants; compare Genesis 6:13, "the Earth is filled with violence through them. " The Sethites, the church separated from the surrounding world lying in the wicked one, had been the salt of the Earth; but when even they intermarried with the corrupted races around the salt lost its savor, there was no seasoning of the universal corruption; (compare Exodus 34:16; Ezra 10:3-19; Nehemiah 13:23-28; Deuteronomy 7:3; 1 Kings 11:1-4;) a flood alone could sweep away the festering mass, out of which one godly seed alone, Noah, was saved. The Hindu tradition of two races, Suras and Asuras, and the Greek legend that the demi-gods were sons of the gods and that the Titan giants sprang from the union of heaven and Earth, flow from the history of Genesis 6 corrupted
Moon - When Jesus, the Sun of righteousness, causeth his rays of light to act upon the church, by their kind influences, the church then like the moon from the sun, ministers according to the divine appointment of her Lord; but if the Earth comes between, that is, if Earthly affections intervene between Christ and the soul, then, like the interposition in the planetary world, there will be an eclipse. ” Every thing of Earth and Earthly affections will be under our feet, when our souls are clothed with the bright robes of Jesus's righteousness, and Christ himself "formed in the heart the hope of glory. " And the church is then fair as the moon in Jesus' eye, though, like the moon, when shining in her greatest brightness, spots may be seen upon her, and all the light she affords the Earth is but what she first receives from the sun
High Place - ”...
The word is used metaphorically to portray the Lord as providing for His people: “He made him ride on the high places of the Earth, that he might eat the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the rock, and oil out of the flinty rock” ( Earth,” is a Hebraic way of expressing God’s protection of His people. The bâmâh was a place of cult prostitution: "[9] pant after the dust of the Earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy name: And they lay themselves down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god” (Amos 2:7-8)
Millennium - Other important events will also have occurred previously, namely, the judgements that must fall upon Judah and Israel before they can under God occupy the first place of Earthly blessing in their own land, the nations being blessed through them. The Lord Himself will reign over the Earth in righteousness, and all the inhabitants of the world will learn righteousness. ...
There will be universal peace and blessing all over the Earth: instead of the invention of weapons of slaughter, the swords will be beaten into ploughshares. ...
Thus the kingdom spoken of in Daniel 2:44 will be established on Earth by the God of heaven, and it will consume all other kingdoms
Demon - ...
The evil spirits that possessed so many persons when the Lord was on Earth were demons, and from the instances given we learn much respecting them. In a future day also, when God will be pouring out His judgements on the Earth, men will not repent, but will worship demons and all sorts of idols. The spirits of demons also, by working miracles, will gather the kings of the Earth together to the battle of that great day of Almighty God
Millennium - ...
Thousand years reign with Christ...
Those who believe that the thousand years reign of Christ refers to his present exaltation in glory are called amillennialists (a meaning ‘without’), because they do not believe that the vision refers to a literal reign of Christ on Earth. ...
By contrast, other interpreters consider that the thousand years reign of Christ refers to a literal reign on Earth. Since Christ must return to Earth before (pre) this reign can begin, they are called premillennialists. This occurs at the end of the Earthly millennium, when the wicked are raised to face final judgment (John 5:28-29). It has similarities with the amillennial view in its interpretation of the two groups who ‘come to life’ and in its understanding that the thousand years reign of Christ does not refer to a literal reign on Earth. ...
The premillennial view understands the binding of Satan to refer to his inability to interfere during the coming Earthly reign of Christ (Matthew 25:31). The destruction of Satan comes, therefore, at the end of Christ’s Earthly reign (1 Corinthians 15:25-28)
Seventy Weeks of Daniel - It is generally agreed that the Lord lived on the Earth thirty-three and a half years, but if He was born B. ...
As already stated, the church does not appear in the above: it has nothing to do with times and seasons — they belong to Israel and to the Earth. "...
Seeing however that the Lord Jesus is referred to in the Seventy Weeks, not only in His being 'cut off' but also in His coming again to subdue His enemies, to bless His ancient people Israel, and to establish His kingdom on Earth, it becomes His saints to study such a prophecy as this, and to be assured that nothing can happen to hinder or set aside the purposes of God: all is being ordered, and is hastening on to the time when the Lord Jesus will be acknowledged on Earth as King of kings and Lord of lords
Tree - ...
Exodus 15:25 (c) Perhaps this tree represents the Lord JESUS CHRIST who certainly does sweeten the bitter things of life, and make the sorrows of Earth a blessing to the soul. Certainly they were to be a blessing to the whole Earth. The roots, however, remain in the Earth, and are even now producing a new tree. They are made to feel at home in this great unnatural religious system, which is a curse to the Earth
Almighty - From the annunciation by Moses of a divine existence who was "in the beginning," before all things, the very first step is to the display of his almighty power in the creation out of nothing, and the immediate arrangement in order and perfection, of the "heaven and the Earth;" by which is meant, not this globe only with its atmosphere, or even with its own celestial system, but the universe itself; for "he made the stars also. He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the Earth upon nothing. " "He looketh to the end of the Earth, and seeth under the whole heaven, to make the weight for the winds, to weigh the waters by measure, to make a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder. " "Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, meted out heaven with a span, comprehended the dust of the Earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance. " "He removeth the mountains, and they know it not; he overturneth them in his anger; he shaketh the Earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble; he commandeth the sun and it riseth not, and sealeth up the stars. " They veil their faces before his throne, and acknowledge themselves his servants: "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the Earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers," "as the dust of the balance, less than nothing and vanity. Before his face heaven and Earth fly away; the stars fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven are shaken. " The tides reach their height; if they flowed on for a few hours, the Earth would change places with the bed of the sea; but, under an invisible control, they become refluent. The expression, "He toucheth the mountains and they smoke," is not mere imagery:—every volcano is a testimony of its truth; and Earthquakes proclaim, that, before him, "the pillars of the world tremble. —The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?—The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? If God be for us, who then can be against us? Our help standeth in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and Earth
Old - Golden - ...
Psalm 19:10 (a) This figure indicates that the precious truths of the Bible are more valuable, more useful and more to be desired than the finest metal that Earth can produce. ...
Gold buys one's way into Earthly places but CHRIST brings one into the throne room of Heaven. He is better than gold which is used as a standard far purity on the Earth. ...
Ezekiel 16:13 (a) We learn from this that Israel was made wealthy, beautiful, great and powerful by the hand of GOD who gave to them liberally of the blessings of Heaven and Earth. He was the supreme ruler of the Earth. These blessings from Heaven enrich the life on Earth, and will enrich the soul for eternity. This entices the merchants of the Earth to seek her favor because of the remuneration to be gained
Prophets, the - Those referring to the times of the Gentiles, which began with Nebuchadnezzar, and, continuing beyond the days of the Messiah on Earth, are still running on: these are almost entirely given in Daniel. Those given after a portion of Judah had returned from exile, when they were helped by the prophecies of Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi, which present the time of the Messiah on Earth, and go even beyond to future blessing. This is the great end of God's ways on Earth. Prophecy treats of the Earth and of the government of God and its issue: the Christian belongs to heaven, and he will reign with Christ in the kingdom. To allow Israel to signify Israel in its punishment, its restoration, and its future Earthly glory, at once clears away a mass of difficulties. The appearing of the Lord with the heavenly saints to judge His enemies, and to deliver His Earthly people. The binding of Satan; the creation will be delivered from the bondage of corruption, and Christ will reign over the Earth a thousand years in peace, being Antitype of Solomon. The loosing of Satan for a short time, who will again deceive the nations: they will attack the saints on Earth and Jerusalem; but the enemy will be destroyed by fire, and Satan be cast into the lake of fire
Kingly Office of Christ - ...
Christ sustained and exercised the function of mediatorial King as well as of Prophet and Priest, from the time of the fall of man, when he entered on his mediatorial work; yet it may be said that he was publicly and formally enthroned when he ascended up on high and sat down at the Father's right hand (Psalm 2:6 ; Jeremiah 23:5 ; Isaiah 9:6 ), after his work of humiliation and suffering on Earth was "finished
Baal-Zebub - It is worthy remark, that the name of this idol changed only from Baal-zebub in Hebrew, to Beel-zebub in Greek, was given to the devil, in the days of our Lord's ministry upon Earth
Short, Shorten - is short"); the coming of the Lord is always to be regarded as nigh for the believer, who is to be in constant expectation of His return, and thus is to keep himself from being the slave of Earthly conditions and life's relationships; (b) "to wrap up," of enshrouding a body for burial, Acts 5:6 , RV, "they wrapped (AV, wound) .

3: συντηρέω (Strong's #4933 — Verb — suntemno — soon-tay-reh'-o ) primarily, "to cut in pieces" (sun, "together," temno, "to cut"), then, "to cut down, cut short," is used metaphorically in Romans 9:28 (twice in some texts), "the Lord will execute His word (logos, not "work," as AV) upon the Earth, finishing it and cutting it short," i

Javan - See DIVISION OF THE Earth
Boanerges - When our Saviour named the sons of Zebedee, Boanerges, he perhaps had an eye to that prophecy of Haggai, "Yet once, and I will shake the heavens and the Earth," Haggai 2:6 ; which is, by the Apostle to the Hebrews 12:26 , applied to the great alteration made in the economy of the Jews by the publication of the Gospel. The name Boanerges, therefore, given to James and John, imports that they should be eminent instruments in accomplishing the wondrous change, and should, like an Earthquake or thunder, mightily bear down all opposition, by their inspired preaching and miraculous powers
Bread - 1: ἄρτος (Strong's #740 — Noun Masculine — artos — ar'-tos ) "bread" (perhaps derived from aro, "to fit together," or from a root ar---, "the Earth"), signifies (a) "a small loaf or cake," composed of flour and water, and baked, in shape either oblong or round, and about as thick as the thumb; these were not cut, but broken and were consecrated to the Lord every Sabbath and called the "shewbread" (loaves of presentation), Matthew 12:4 ; when the "shewbread" was reinstituted by Nehemiah (Nehemiah 10:32 ) a poll-tax of 1/3 shekel was laid on the Jews, Matthew 17:24 ; (b) "the loaf at the Lord's Supper," e
Olives, Olive Tree - 1: ἐλαία (Strong's #1636 — Noun Feminine — elaia — el-ah'-yah ) denotes (a) "an olive tree," Romans 11:17,24 ; Revelation 11:4 (plural); the Mount of Olives was so called from the numerous olive trees there, and indicates the importance attached to such; the Mount is mentioned in the NT in connection only with the Lord's life on Earth, Matthew 21:1 ; 24:3 ; 26:30 ; Mark 11:1 ; 13:3 ; 14:26 ; Luke 19:37 ; 22:39 ; John 8:1 ; (b) "an olive," James 3:12 , RV (AV, "olive berries")

Job 28:2 (margin) saith, "iron is taken out of the Earth" or "dust," for the ore looks like mere "earth
Adam - He was formed out of the dust of the Earth (and hence his name), and God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and gave him dominion over all the lower creatures (Genesis 1:26 ; 2:7 ). The investigations of science, altogether independent of historical evidence, lead to the conclusion that God "hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the Earth" (Acts 17:26

Wine Press - The must, as is customary in the east at the present day, was preserved in large firkins, which were buried in the Earth. The wine cellars were not subterranean, but built upon the Earth
Grasshopper - The Prophet Isaiah contrasts the grandeur and power of God, and every thing reputed great in this world, by a very expressive reference to this insect: Jehovah sitteth on the circle of the Earth, and the inhabitants are to him as grasshoppers, Isaiah 40:22 . What atoms and inanities are they all before him, who sitteth on the circle of the immense heavens, and views the potentates of the Earth in the light of grasshoppers, those poor insects that wander over the barren heath for sustenance, spend the day in insignificant chirpings, and take up their contemptible lodging at night on a blade of grass! See LOCUST
Adam - Adam (ăd'am), red, red Earth. This name was probably chosen to remind the man of his Earthly nature, seeing that out of the ground his body was taken, though his soul, the breath of life, was breathed into his nostrils by God's immediate act. This history of his creation is narrated in Genesis 1:26-30; Genesis 2:7; Genesis 2:15-25, a single pair being formed, to whom the Earth was given for a possession, to replenish it with their children, to enjoy the fruits of it, and to have dominion over the inferior animate
Repentance - The idea conveyed in this term is of great importance from the fact of its application not only to man but to God, showing how God, in His government of the Earth, is pleased to express His own sense of events taking place upon it. He repented that He had made man on the Earth, and that He had set up Saul as king of Israel
Flood - ...
Theological Proclamation of the Flood God took account of Earth's wickedness, the persistent human bent toward evil, the corruption that filled the Earth with injustice. Most notable of all was the covenant of continued Earthly security for mankind and the rainbow as the symbol of that everlasting covenant. God's creature had corrupted the Earth and filled it with lawlessness. ...
If God saw the evil in the Earth, He saw also the righteous Noah—blameless in his generation, one who walked with God. Informed, instructed, provided for, covenanted with to become the head of a new race and blessed to be productive and to increase on Earth, Noah was made the mediator of a world-encompassing covenant where the image of God would guarantee equality in society
Exaltation - This prediction was fulfilled during the reign of David, when Israel's king was "the most exalted of the kings of the Earth" (Psalm 89:27 ). The arrogance of Israel's leaders and of other nations is directly contrasted to the splendor of God's majesty "when he rises to shake the Earth" (Isaiah 2:19,21 ). ...
Having finished his work on Earth, Jesus was taken back to heaven and seated at the right hand of God. The son of David was now a king far above any Earthly ruler. ...
At his second coming the King of kings and Lord of lords will return to Earth to defeat the nations and to rule them with an iron scepter (Revelation 19:15-16 )
Origenists - Therefore if our souls existed before they appeared inhabitants of the Earth, they were placed in a purer element, and enjoyed far greater degrees of happiness. That the Earth after its conflagration shall become habitable again, and be the mansion of men and animals, and that in eternal vicissitudes. For it is thus expressed in Isaiah: Behold I make new heavens, and a new Earth; &c. thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundations of the Earth; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed, &c
Treasure - Just as on Earth the worldly-wise may lay up stores of wealth, so in the heavens the man who seeks after spiritual things may lay up for himself an eternal treasure. It has been imagined by some commentators that by ‘treasure in heaven’ our Lord means merely the reward which shall be given hereafter to all who suffer loss for His sake on Earth. ‘Go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven’ (Matthew 19:21, Mark 10:21, Luke 18:22), they take to mean merely, ‘Give away thine Earthly wealth, and God shall give thee instead heavenly blessedness’; but so to interpret the words is to miss by far the most valuable part of their teaching. Christ therefore bade him cast aside the temptation which bound him down, that his aspirations might at last have free play; that, untrammelled by Earthly cares, he might take to himself the treasure of righteousness and truth which he had always longed to make his own. ’ The heart of the good man brings down heaven to Earth, while that of the evil man could find no bliss in heaven itself. ; Flint, Christ’s Kingdom upon Earth (1865), 196; H
Spirit; Breath - 49:36 the four winds represent the four ends of the Earth, which in turn represent every quarter: “And upon Elam will I bring the four winds [6] from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come. ...
Fifth, rûach frequently represents the element of life in a man, his natural “spirit”: “And all flesh died that moved upon the
