People's Dictionary of the Bible - Washing of the Hands And Feet
Washing of the Hands and Feet. This was rendered necessary by oriental customs and climate. The hands should be clean, for all persons at table put their fingers into the same dish. The feet should be washed because the sandals afforded little protection against soil; and besides, the feet would be hot. The words of Christ against the handwashings of the Pharisees was directed against it as a religious observance. Mark 7:3; Matthew 15:2; Luke 11:38. The washing by the host of the feet of the guest was a mark of respect, 1 Samuel 25:41; Luke 7:38; Luke 7:44; John 13:5-14; but usually water was provided and the guests washed their own feet, or had them washed by servants. Genesis 18:4; Judges 19:21.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Feet
* For FEET see FOOT
Smith's Bible Dictionary - Washing the Hands And Feet
As knives and forks were not used in the East, in Scripture times, in eating, it was necessary that the hand, which was thrust into the common dish, should be scrupulously clean; and again, as sandals were ineffectual against the dust and heat of the climate, washing the feet on entering a house was an act both of respect to the company and of refreshment to the traveller. The former of these usages was transformed by the Pharisees of the New Testament age into a matter of ritual observance, (Mark 7:3 ) and special rules were laid down as to the time and manner of its performance. Washing the feet did not rise to the dignity of a ritual observance except in connection with the services of the sanctuary. (Exodus 30:19,21 ) It held a high place, however, among the rites of hospitality. Immediately that a guest presented himself at the tent door it was usual to offer the necessary materials for washing the feet. (Genesis 18:4 ; 19:2 ; 24:32 ; 43:24 ; Judges 19:21 ) It was a yet more complimentary act, betokening equally humility and affection, if the host himself performed the office for his guest. (1 Samuel 25:41 ; Luke 7:38,44 ; John 13:5-14 ; 1 Timothy 5:10 ) Such a token of hospitality is still occasionally exhibited in the East.

1 Samuel 2:9 (a) By this we are taught that GOD will direct the walk, the ways, the service, and the lives of His people.
2 Samuel 22:34 (a) Here we find a picture of the way GOD equips His children for the rough paths of life. Sometimes He smooths out the road. Sometimes He removes mountains, exalts the valleys, and makes the crooked places straight. However, sometimes He leaves the road filled with stones, and the mountains steep and apparently inaccessible, but He fixes up His child to enjoy the difficulties, and to surmount them easily. The hind is a mountain deer with small feet. It feels quite at home among the cliffs and chasms of the mountain range, and has no difficulty traversing them. So the Lord equips His people to overcome obstacles, and to live happy lives in the midst of difficulties. (See also Psalm 18:33, Psalm 18:36; 2 Samuel 22:37; Habakkuk 3:19).
1 Kings 2:5 (a) This is a reference to the evil way of Joab in killing those whom he thought might hinder his leadership, and replace him as the general of the army.
2 Kings 9:35 (b) This is a three-fold picture. The skull represents the thoughts and the teachings which this wicked woman established in Israel. Her feet represented her evil ways and wicked walk which still were copied by the people of Israel after she was dead. Her hands represented her wicked works which still afflicted Israel.
Job 12:5 (b) By this picture we may understand one who is willing to go astray in paths of sin and wants no one to enlighten him on the error of his way, nor warn him of its consequences.
Job 29:15 (a) Job is using this illustration to describe his ministry as a messenger to those who could not walk. He took food and supplies to those who could not otherwise obtain them. He is telling us that he was a friend, and a liberal friend, to the poor.
Job 30:12 (a) This describes to us those young people who were insulting the old servant of GOD, and who rejected both his company and his counsel.
Job 33:11 (a) GOD had so afflicted Job that he could not go about his business as he would like, nor enter into the activities of life.

Psalm 40:2 (a) This is a type of the solid foundation for our faith and our safety, CHRIST JESUS, the Rock of Ages.
Psalm 66:9 (a) By this is represented the safekeeping from GOD of those who walk with Him in fellowship and obedience.
Psalm 73:2 (a) Asaph was so confused by what he saw of the prosperity of the wicked that he contemplated going into wicked ways himself. GOD, however, preserved and kept him from following such a path, and revealed to him the end of the road which the wicked take.
Psalm 74:3 (a) This great singer is calling upon GOD to hurry to Jerusalem with His delivering power because of the dire need and the wretched condition of Israel.
Proverbs 6:13 (a) The wicked man leads others to walk in wicked ways with him. He invites his friends to go astray in paths of sin with him.

Proverbs 29:5 (a) This is an injunction to help our neighbor to live a good and useful life by not feeding his pride.
Song of Solomon 7:1 (a) By this we are taught that our walk must be made safe and comfortable, as well as beautiful and attractive through the death of our Saviour. Shoes are made from the hide of a dead animal. So our natural walk must be covered over with the life of our lovely Lord, so that we may "walk with the Lord in the light of His Word."
Isaiah 6:2 (b) Even these heavenly beings felt that their walk and way were not fit to be seen by the Lord. How much more do we need to be covered by the Blood of CHRIST and by His robe of righteousness.
Isaiah 7:20 (a) In this way GOD is warning Israel that He will send the King of Assyria to execute terrible vengeance on them, even to the smallest details of their lives.
Jeremiah 13:16 (a) This is a picture of the confusion and chaos that would come on Israel if they turned their backs on the GOD of Heaven who is the light of life.
Ezekiel 1:7 (a) All of this passage depicts the Lord JESUS in several aspects. These feet are typical of the straight and sure and godly walk of CHRIST as He lived on earth. It may mean also that as the feet of the calf lead it to the altar for sacrifice, so the feet of the Lord JESUS led Him to Calvary to die for us.
Ezekiel 16:25 (a) This figure is used to express the sinful lusts of Israel as they invited their neighbors, who were really their enemies, to come in and to bring with them evil pleasures for the enjoyment of Israel.

Nahum 1:3 (a) This is a figure from country life. When clouds of dust arise in the road, we know that someone is coming along the way. So, clouds of trouble in the life of a believer tell us that GOD is near. He said, "When thou passeth through the waters, I will be with thee." He also said, "I will be with him in trouble." He has not promised to keep His children out of trouble. He has promised to preserve us when we go through the trouble.
Nahum 1:15 (c) This indicates that the pathway of the Gospel messenger was blessed of GOD to bring joy to many hearts. (See also Romans 10:15).
Habakkuk 3:19 (a) The prophet is telling us that the Lord fixed him up in such a way that difficulties, obstacles, and mountains in his path were easy to traverse and a delight to his heart as the mountain deer (hind) delights in the cliffs and chasms of the mountain.
Ephesians 6:15 (b) We cannot live the Gospel. We can, however, and should, walk in such a way that people will listen to what we say. The feet are not shod with the Gospel. That must come from our lips. The feet (our walk) should be of such a character that it will make it easy for people to believe what we say when we give them the Gospel.
Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Feet (Under)
2 Samuel 22:10 (a) This figure is used to describe the complete control that GOD will have and does have over His enemies. No one can successfully fight against GOD. In His own good time, He triumphs completely and every enemy is crushed. (See also Psalm 18:9).
2 Samuel 22:39 (a) The thought in this passage is quite similar to the one above. GOD controls the actions of His enemies, as He pleases, and forces them to obey His will. This truth is to be seen in the case of the King of Babylon whom GOD described as His "battle ax" to subdue the nations. Having accomplished this purpose, GOD destroyed the Babylonian empire. (See also Psalm 91:13).
Psalm 8:6 (a) GOD has made the Lord JESUS CHRIST the sovereign Lord over all creation. Every knee must bow to Him, and every tongue must confess to Him. Every voice is to acclaim Him Lord of all. (See1Co 15:25-27; Ephesians 1:22; Hebrews 2:8).
Romans 16:20 (a) GOD will yet triumph overall the plans of the devil, and will subdue Satan and his hosts. (See also Genesis 3:15).
Revelation 12:1 (a) Probably the description that is given is to inform us that this woman is the nation of Israel. This nation began as we read in Genesis 37:7, Genesis 37:9. In this passage, the sun represents Jacob, the father, the moon represents Joseph's mother, the stars represent the other brothers. For that reason in the passage before us, the Lord is identifying the woman as the one represented by those figures way back in Jacob's day.
Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Feet (Wash)
Exodus 30:19 (c) Perhaps this figure indicates that our work and our walk must be clean as we enter into GOD's service. (See Exodus 30:21; Exodus 40:31).
Psalm 58:10 (b) This unusual picture describes the complete victory that GOD's people will eventually have over all their enemies. It may be that this refers definitely to the time when Israel will be the head of the nations, having conquered and subdued all her enemies.
Song of Solomon 5:3 (c) In this passage we may see the utter devotion of the child of GOD to his Lord. He has removed his coat for whole-hearted work in the harvest field, and he has cleansed his feet from evil ways that he may walk humbly and softly with GOD. Certainly no other walk would be desirable nor permissible between these two lovers.
John 13:5-14 (b) By this service we are to learn that the Lord JESUS took the humble place, and so should we. He served the disciples in lowliness of mind, heart and position, and so we should serve each other. He indicated by this service that He would cleanse our ways for us, that we might walk in a clean path. He also assured Peter that He would continue this service from Heaven and that we also should help to encourage each other in paths of godliness. (See also Psalm 119:9; Ephesians 5:26; 1 Timothy 5:10).

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Feet (2)
FEET.—The word occurs frequently in the Gospels. Figuratively it has a wide range of meaning. It is employed in phrases which express worthlessness (‘to be trodden under foot,’ Matthew 5:13), supplication (‘fell at his feet,’ Mark 5:22; Mark 7:25), great honour or reverence (Luke 7:38-46 the woman who kissed Jesus’ feet; John 11:2 Mary; Matthew 28:9 ‘held him by the feet’), ignorant or blasphemous contempt (Matthew Mat_7:6 ‘trample under foot’), righteous condemnation or rejection (Matthew 10:14 ‘shake dust off feet’), salvation through sacrifice (Matthew 18:8 || Mark 9:45 cutting off hand or foot), discipleship (Luke 8:35 cured demoniac sitting at Jesus’ feet; Luke 10:39 Mary), helplessness (Matthew 22:13 ‘bind hand and foot’), complete triumph (Matthew 22:44, Mark 12:36 || Luke 20:43 enemies of Messianic King put under His feet), absolute safety (Matthew 4:6 || Luke 4:11 ‘lest thou dash thy foot against a stone’), subjection (Matthew 5:35 earth the footstool of God’s feet). In washing the feet of the disciples Jesus inculcates lessons of humility, mutual service, and the need of daily cleansing from sin (John 13:5-14). See artt. Bason, Foot.
Of the feet of Jesus Himself mention is made in the NT very frequently. Before His feet suppliants fell down (Mark 5:22; Mark 7:25, Luke 8:41), and also a Samaritan who returned to give thanks (Luke 17:16). At His feet sufferers were laid to be healed (Matthew 13:30). Neglectful of the courtesies of a host, Simon the Pharisee gave Him no water to refresh His feet (Luke 7:44); but a sinful woman on the same occasion wet His feet with her tears, wiped them with the hair of her head, kissed them, and anointed them with ointment (Luke 7:38; Luke 7:44 ff.); and Mary of Bethany showed her great love and gratitude in a similar fashion, when she lavished the contents of her alabaster cruse of precious spikenard (John 11:2; John 12:3; cf. Matthew 26:7, Mark 14:3) upon the feet which had brought the Lord from beyond Jordan (John 10:40; John 11:7) to speak the life-giving word at her brother’s grave (John 11:43 f.). At Jesus’ feet the restored demoniac sat (Luke 8:35), like Mary afterwards when she ‘heard his word’ (Luke 10:39). The two angels who guarded the sepulchre were seen sitting ‘the one at the head, and the other at the feet, where the body of Jesus had lain’ (John 20:12). It was His feet that the two Marys clung to when they first met Jesus on the Resurrection morning. [1]. When Jesus in the upper room showed His hands and His feet to His disciples (Luke 24:39 f.), it was doubtless to prove to them that He who now stood before them was the same Jesus who by hands and feet had been nailed to the cross (cf. John 20:20; John 20:25; John 20:27). St. Paul says of the ascended Christ that all things are put under His feet (Ephesians 1:22), and that beneath His feet death itself shall be destroyed (1 Corinthians 15:25 ff.). And in the Book of Revelation, when the heavenly Jesus appears to the seer of Patmos, the place of His feet has been made glorious (cf. Isaiah 60:13). Those feet which were dust-stained in the house of Simon the Pharisee, and weary by the well of Sychar (John 4:6), and pierced with nails on the cross of Calvary, are now ‘like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace’ (Revelation 1:15; cf. Revelation 2:18).
It has been questioned whether the feet of Jesus were nailed to the cross. The doubt is based on the facts that in the Fourth Gospel Jesus mentions only His hands and side (John 20:20), and that sometimes in crucifixion the feet were simply tied to the cross. The nailing of the feet of Jesus would not have been disputed were it not part of an argument to prove that He did not really die on the cross. ‘That the feet were usually nailed (in crucifixion), and that the case of Jesus was no exception to the general rule, may be regarded as beyond doubt’ (Meyer on Matthew 27:35). There is a difference of opinion as to whether the feet of Jesus were nailed to the cross separately, with two nails, or the one over the other with the same nail. In early art the feet are more frequently represented as separately nailed, but in later art as nailed together, the one over the other. Tradition favours the opinion that the feet were nailed separately. See art. Crucifixion.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Feet
The tendency to Individual detail, which gives so much vividness to Semitic narrative, accounts for some of the references to the feet (πόδες) in apostolic writings, as, for example, the reference in St. Peter’s judgment on Sapphira: ‘the feet of those who buried thy husband are at the door’ (Acts 5:9; cf. Acts 7:5, Hebrews 12:13, Revelation 1:15; Revelation 2:18; Revelation 10:1). The sinner’s feet axe ‘swift to shed blood’ (Romans 3:15), but the Christian’s are to be ‘sandalled’ with readiness to proclaim the gospel of peace (Ephesians 6:15), and are made beautiful by that mission (Romans 10:15). Behind such allusions, however, there is something more than the love of graphic detail. The whole body enters much more into biblical ideas of personality than the modern reader usually recognizes (see articles Ear, Head). In St. Paul’s analogy between the human body and the Church, the head needs the service of the feet, and the foot must not refuse its ministry because its service is humbler than that of the hand (1 Corinthians 12:15; 1 Corinthians 12:21; 1 Corinthians cf.1 Clem. xxxvii. 5). In the mystical body of the Odes of Solomon (xlii. 18) the feet represent the saints.
Other references to the feet are derived from Oriental customs. The sandals are removed in holy places (Acts 7:33), as before entering the mosque of to-day. The removal of the master’s sandals is a slave’s work (Acts 13:25). To wash the dusty feet of guests is a rite of hospitality (cf. Luke 7:44, John 13:4 f.) and the habit of rendering such service to the ‘saints’ is mentioned amongst the qualifications of ‘widows’ (1 Timothy 5:10; see article Widow). Since the Jewish teacher taught whilst sitting, with his scholars at a lower level around him, St. Paul can say literally that he was ‘brought up at the feet of Gamaliel’ (Acts 22:3). Contributions to the common fund are laid at the feet of the apostles, who are thus represented sitting as teachers (Acts 4:35; see Holtzmann, ad loc). The clothes of the ‘witnesses’ who stoned Stephen were laid at the feet of Saul, already prominent against the new sect (Acts 7:58). The Oriental habit of prostration before the feet of a superior, in fear or reverence, is illustrated by Sapphira (Acts 5:10), Cornelius (Acts 10:25), John (Revelation 1:17; Revelation 19:10; Revelation 22:8; cf. Revelation 3:9; Hermas, Vis. III. ii 3). The ancient custom according to which the victor literally trampled the conquered under his feet (Joshua 10:24 and the monuments), to register and confirm the conquest, accounts for the frequent phrase ‘under the feet,’ to denote subjugation (1 Corinthians 15:25; 1 Corinthians 15:27, Ephesians 1:22, Hebrews 2:8, Romans 16:20; cf. Revelation 10:2; Revelation 12:1). In the spirit of dramatic symbolism, Agabus (q.v. [1] ) bound his hands and feet with St. Paul’s girdle, to prophesy the Apostle’s coming bondage (Acts 21:11). St. Paul and Barnabas shook off the dust of their feet against Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13:51; cf. Matthew 10:14) in token of complete separation from its doom.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Feet
FOOT, FEET
The Hebrews were so much accustomed to use parable and figure in their discourses, and gesture in their conversation, to convey to each other their meaning, rather than by words, that it is no wonder so many and various meanings should be conveyed by one and the same way. Thus by feet they meant to denote every thing that was humble, and conceal every thing immodest. "A wicked man, (saith Solomons) speaketh with his feet." (Proverbs 6:13) The sense is, by motions of his feet he conveyed somewhat indecent and unbecoming "To leave off the sandals from the feet," was an indication of sorrow, and of great humility. Thus Ezekiel mourned for his wife. (Ezekiel 24:17) And Moses was commanded at the bush to put off his shoes, in token that the ground where he then stood was holy ground. (Exodus 3:5) To sit at the feet of another, implied humility. (1 Samuel 25:24) Mary sat at the feet of Jesus. (Luke 7:38) To cover the feet, was a phrase used to imply attending to the wants of nature. Thus Ehud. (Judges 3:24) "To open the feet to every one that passed by," was an expression of whoredom (Ezekiel 16:25) These phrases serve to throw a light upon the subject in general.
But if these things were so, and every action relative to the feet carried with it somewhat of a special nature, think what unequalled humbleness that was in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of life and glory, when he condescended to wash the feet of poor fishermen. (See John 13:3-8) And what tends to endear this action of Christ the more is, that it was at a season, we are told, when all things were given into his sovereign hands. Never surely, was there an instance of equal humility. Poor vain man, that hath nothing, yea, is himself worse than nothing, is proud. But Jesus, who hath all things, and is himself infinitely superior to all things, is unequalled in humility. It were to be wished, that all his redeemed felt more of this spirit of their Lord. And it were to be wished, that every poor, tried, and humble believer, would never lose sight of this feature of character in the Lord Jesus Christ. And let any man, and every man, determine the point for himself: When is Jesus most lovely, most dear, and precious? Is it not when he is most condescending? Suppose the Lord Jesus were to wash my feet, as he did Peter's, would not such an act of grace overwhelm my poor heart with love? Yea, would not the Lord Jesus be the more exalted to my view and in my esteem when in his matchless grace he had been most condescending? How sweet are such views of Jesus!

It has been questioned whether the Feet of Jesus were nailed to the cross. The doubt is based on the facts that in the Fourth Gospel Jesus mentions only His hands and side (John 20:20), and that sometimes in crucifixion the Feet were simply tied to the cross. The nailing of the Feet of Jesus would not have been disputed were it not part of an argument to prove that He did not really die on the cross. ‘That the Feet were usually nailed (in crucifixion), and that the case of Jesus was no exception to the general rule, may be regarded as beyond doubt’ (Meyer on Matthew 27:35). There is a difference of opinion as to whether the Feet of Jesus were nailed to the cross separately, with two nails, or the one over the other with the same nail. In early art the Feet are more frequently represented as separately nailed, but in later art as nailed together, the one over the other.

The ancient custom according to which the victor literally trampled the conquered under his Feet (Joshua 10:24 and the monuments), to register and confirm the conquest, accounts for the frequent phrase ‘under the Feet,’ to denote subjugation (1 Corinthians 15:25; 1 Corinthians 15:27, Ephesians 1:22, Hebrews 2:8, Romans 16:20; cf. ]'>[1] ) bound his hands and Feet with St. Paul and Barnabas shook off the dust of their Feet against Pisidian Antioch (Acts 13:51; cf

The Hebrews were so much accustomed to use parable and figure in their discourses, and gesture in their conversation, to convey to each other their meaning, rather than by words, that it is no wonder so many and various meanings should be conveyed by one and the same way. Thus by Feet they meant to denote every thing that was humble, and conceal every thing immodest. "A wicked man, (saith Solomons) speaketh with his Feet. " (Proverbs 6:13) The sense is, by motions of his Feet he conveyed somewhat indecent and unbecoming "To leave off the sandals from the Feet," was an indication of sorrow, and of great humility. (Exodus 3:5) To sit at the Feet of another, implied humility. (1 Samuel 25:24) Mary sat at the Feet of Jesus. (Luke 7:38) To cover the Feet, was a phrase used to imply attending to the wants of nature.

But if these things were so, and every action relative to the Feet carried with it somewhat of a special nature, think what unequalled humbleness that was in the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of life and glory, when he condescended to wash the Feet of poor fishermen. And let any man, and every man, determine the point for himself: When is Jesus most lovely, most dear, and precious? Is it not when he is most condescending? Suppose the Lord Jesus were to wash my Feet, as he did Peter's, would not such an act of grace overwhelm my poor heart with love? Yea, would not the Lord Jesus be the more exalted to my view and in my esteem when in his matchless grace he had been most condescending? How sweet are such views of Jesus!...

Foot - Anciently it was customary, to wash the Feet of strangers coming off a journey, because generally they travelled barefoot, or wore sandals only, which did not secure them from dust or dirt. Jesus Christ washed the Feet of his Apostles, and thereby taught them to perform the humblest services for one another. Feet, in the sacred writers, often mean inclinations, affections, propensities, actions, motions: "Guide my Feet in thy paths. " "Keep thy Feet at a distance from evil. " "The Feet of the debauched woman go down to death. " To be at any one's Feet, signifies obeying him, listening to his instructions and commands. Moses says that "the Lord loved his people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at his Feet," Deuteronomy 33:3 . Paul was brought up at the Feet of Gamaliel. Mary sat at our Saviour's Feet, and heard his word, Luke 10:39 .

This is what Moses means in this place by saying, that, in Egypt they water the earth with their Feet. To be under any one's Feet, to be a footstool to him, signifies the subjection of a subject to his sovereign, of a slave to his master. To lick the dust of one's Feet, is an abject manner of doing homage. Nakedness of Feet was a sign of mourning. God says to Ezekiel, "Make no mourning for the dead, and put on thy shoes upon thy Feet," &c. It was also a mark of respect: "Put off thy shoes from off thy Feet; for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground," Exodus 3:5 .

Customarily, a host provided guests with water for washing their own Feet (Judges 19:21 ; Luke 7:44 , where the complaint was that Simon had not provided water). In this context the statement of John the Baptist that he was unworthy to untie the sandal (to wash the Feet) of the One coming after him (Mark 1:7 ) indicates great humility. As a sign of exceptional love, a disciple might wash a master's Feet (contrast John 13:13-14 ) or a wife volunteer to wash her husband's (Joseph and Asenath John 20:1-5 ). The initiative of the woman who was a “sinner” in washing Jesus' Feet (Luke 7:37-50 ) was more than expected hospitality. Jesus' washing of the disciples' Feet (John 13:4-5 ) has both an ethical and symbolic sense. ) The command to do for each other what Christ had done for them ought not to be confined simply to washing Feet. ...

Foot - Isaiah 3:18 ; Isaiah 3:18 refers to the ornaments of women’s Feet.

Other usages arise from the Feet as stained or defiled in walking. The shaking of dust from the Feet ( Matthew 10:14 , Acts 13:51 ) was the sign of complete rejection; the land was as a heathen land, and its dust unclean. covering the Feet, Isaiah 6:2 ). do not wear the shoes off your Feet in running after strange gods. ...
Washing the Feet stained with the dust of the road was part of the regular duty of hospitality ( Genesis 18:4 , Exo 30:19 , 2 Samuel 11:8 , Song of Solomon 5:3 , Luke 7:44 ). The washing of the Feet at the Last Supper is primarily connected with this custom ( John 13:1-38 ). ’ Edersheim further sees in the act a substitute for the washing of hands which was part of the Paschal ceremonial; and there may be a reference to the proverb, connected with the Greek mysteries, that a great undertaking must not be entered upon ‘with unwashed Feet

Washing - The priests' hands and Feet alone were washed in the daily tabernacle ministrations (Exodus 30:18-20). So Christians are once for all wholly "bathed" (leloumenoi ) in regeneration which is their consecration; and daily wash away their soils of hand and foot contracted in walking through this defiling world (John 13:10, Greek "he that has been bathed needs not save to wash (nipsasthai ) his Feet, but is clean all over": 2 Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 10:22-23; Ephesians 5:26). In the sultry and dusty East water for the Feet was provided for the guests (Luke 7:44; Genesis 18:4). The Lord Jesus by washing His disciples' Feet taught our need of His cleansing, and His great humility whereby that cleansing was effected (compare 1 Samuel 25:41; 1 Timothy 5:10).

He measured, from the snout to the end of the tail, about fifteen Feet; and his tusks, from the root to the point, along the external curve, twenty-eight inches. Out of twenty- five musket ball, which were fired into the monster's head at the distance of five Feet, only on penetrated the hind and the bones near the nose; so that, every time he breathed, he snorted a stream of blood upon the bark. We had at last to employ a small cannon; but it was only after five of its balls, fired at the distance of a few Feet, had mangled most shockingly the head and body of the monster, that he died
Giant - The ancients considered persons whose stature exceeded seven Feet as gigantic. History, however, acquaints us that, in the reign of Claudius, a giant named Galbara, ten Feet high, was brought to Rome from the coast of Africa. A certain Greek sophist, Proaeresius, is said to have been nine Feet in height. Julius Capitolinus affirms that Maximinian, the Roman emperor, was eight Feet and a half; there was a Swede, one of the life guards of Frederick the Great, of that size. Le Cat speaks of a giant exhibited at Rouen, measuring eight Feet and some inches; and we believe some have been seen in this country, within the last thirty years, whose stature was not inferior. In Plott's "History of Staffordshire," there is an instance of a man of seven Feet and a half high, and another, in Thoresby's account of Leeds, of seven Feet five inches high. Examples may be found elsewhere of several individuals seven Feet in height, below which, after the opinion of the ancients, we may cease to consider men gigantic. Entire families sometimes, though rarely, occur of six Feet four, or six Feet six inches high. From all this we may conclude, that there may have possibly been seen some solitary instances of men who were ten Feet in height; that those of eight Feet are extremely uncommon, and that even six Feet and a half far exceeds the height of men in Europe

Whether it was a square of 400 Feet each way, or an oblong of about 550 Feet by 300, must always be more or less a matter of conjecture. It was 100 cubits (175 Feet) long, 50 (88 Feet) wide, and 30 (52 Feet) high.

Orientals are not accustomed to wear stockings with their open shoes, and it was an act not only of ceremonial duty, but of personal comfort, to bathe the Feet after a journey over the hot and dusty ground. The charge to His disciples to shake the dust from their Feet wherever the message of the Kingdom was not received (Matthew 10:14, Mark 6:11, Luke 9:5; Luke 10:11), was a demonstration to both parties of the unfitness of such people for its membership. When Christ washed the disciples’ Feet, the cleansing meant not only that the Feet under which His sacred hands had been placed could never turn aside to paths of evil, but that they could never be set down with harsh and proud authority over the lives and rights of others. It became a law of the Kingdom to ‘wash one another’s Feet’ (John 13:5; John 13:14). —To approach the Feet of the great was the conceded right of the weak in seeking the presence and help of the powerful. To kneel down and clasp the Feet and even to kiss them is still the Oriental preliminary to an important request. Sometimes the word is allowed to do service for the deed, as when the supplicant says, ‘Allow me to kiss your Feet. To sit at the Feet of his teacher was the attitude of the disciple (Matthew 10:24, Luke 10:39, Acts 22:3). ...

It is Mary who goes forth silently to meet Him, silently and tearfully, so that the bystanders suppose her to be going to weep at her brother’s tomb; who, when she sees Jesus, falls down at His Feet; who, uttering the same words of faith in His power as Martha (Luke 10:21 ; Luke 10:32 ), does not qualify them with the same reservation; who infects all the bystanders with the intensity of her sorrow, and crushes the human spirit of our Lord Himself with sympathetic grief (Lightfoot, Biblical Essays , p.

Yea, will he not delight to receive them? Is he not become more glorious to our view, from becoming so gracious to our need? Precious Lord, I would say for myself and reader, give each of us grace to be everlastingly beholding thee into his most lovely portrait girded with thy towel; and the lower thou comest down to suit the wants of our souls, be thou the higher exalted in our hearts, and live and reign there for ever!...

Banquet - Sometimes they kissed the lips, hands, knees, or Feet, as the person deserved more or less respect. To these customary marks of respect, to which a traveller, or one who had no house of his own, was entitled, our Lord alludes in his defence of Mary: "And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, Seest thou this woman? I entered into thine house; thou gavest me no water for my Feet, but she hath washed my Feet with her tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou gavest me no kiss; but this woman, since the time I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my Feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint; but this woman hath anointed my Feet with ointment," Luke 7:44 . Homer mentions it as a custom quite common in those days, for daughters to wash and afterward to anoint the Feet of their parents. The Jews regularly washed their hands and their Feet before dinner; they considered this ceremony as essential, which discovers the reason of their astonishment, when they observed the disciples of Christ sit down at table without having observed this ceremony: "Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread," Matthew 15:2 . To wash the Feet was a mean and servile office, and, therefore, generally performed by the female servants of the family. It was occasionally performed, however, by females of the highest rank; for the daughter of Cleobulus, one of the Grecian sages, and king of Lindus, a city on the southeast part of Rhodes, was not ashamed to wash the Feet of her father's guests. And it was customary for them to kiss the Feet of those to whom they thought a more than common respect was due; for the daughter of Philocleon, in Aristophanes, washed her father, anointed his Feet, and, stooping down, kissed them. The towel which was used to wipe the Feet after washing, was considered through all the east as a badge of servitude. Suetonius mentions it as a sure mark of the intolerable pride of Caligula, the Roman emperor, that when at supper he suffered senators of the highest rank, sometimes to stand by his couch, sometimes at his Feet, girt with a towel

The rest of the ridge averages about 5000 Feet; it is in general bleak and barren, with shelving gray declivities, gray cliffs and gray rounded summits
Cross - ...
There is no mention made in ancient writers of any thing on which the Feet of the person crucified rested. The cross, which was erected at the place of punishment, being there firmly fixed in the ground, rarely exceeded ten Feet in height. ...
The assertion that the persons who suffered crucifixion were not in some instances fastened to the cross by nails through the hands and Feet, but were merely bound to it by ropes, cannot be proved by the testimony of any ancient writer whatever. That the Feet, as well as the hands, were fastened to the cross by means of nails, is expressly asserted in the play of Plautus, entitled "Mostellaria," compared with Tertullian against the Jews, and against Marcion. In regard to the nailing of the Feet, it may be farthermore observed, that Gregory Nazianzen has asserted, that one nail only was driven through both of them; but Cyprian, ( de passione, ) who had been a personal witness to crucifixions, and is, consequently, in this case, the better authority, states, on the contrary, that two nails or spikes were driven, one through each foot. In case of the least motion, an extremely painful sensation is experienced in the hands and Feet, which are pierced with nails, and in the back, which is lacerated with stripes. The nails, being driven through the parts of the hands and Feet which abound in nerves and tendons, create the most exquisite anguish

But Martha, when she came into Jesus' presence, could at once enter into discourse with Him; Mary, when she saw Him, "fell down at His Feet.

Guests commonly reclined on benches (sometimes elaborate and luxurious), three or five to the bench, the Feet of each extending behind, and the back of the head of each reaching to the bosom of his neighbour on the left (John 13:23; John 21:20)
Animals, Clean And Unclean - Of the fowls a list is given of those that must not be eaten, and of the winged crawling things, that go on all fours, only those 'which have legs above their Feet to leap with' might be eaten. The locust, the bald locust, the beetle, and the grasshopper, each after his kind, might be eaten (probably four species of locust); but all other flying, creeping, or swarming things, which have four Feet were 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
Bethesda - We must therefore look for the Pool of Bethesda in this vicinity, and may at once eliminate several proposed identifications elsewhere, such as the Hammâm csh-Shifâ, near the ‘Gate of the Cotton Merchants,’ about the middle of the west side of the Temple area, where there is a pool with pillars and masonry, some sixty Feet below the present surface, the waters of which are still supposed to possess healing properties (Furrer); and the Pool of Siloam, where the remains of four columns in the east wall, with four others in the centre, ‘show that a structure with five openings or porches might easily have been erected’ (Alford); and the Fountain of the Virgin, the intermittent spring at the bottom of a deep cavern at the foot of the Ophel slope south-east of the Temple (Robinson). (1) Modern tradition identifies Bethesda with the Birket Israil, an empty reservoir, 360 Feet long, 120 Feet wide, and 80 Feet deep, half filled with rubbish, which lies close to St. In the autumn of 1888, ‘certain works carried on by the Algerian monks laid bare a large tank or cistern cut in the rock to a depth of 30 Feet, and Herr Schick recognized this as the Pool of Bethesda. It is 55 Feet long from east to west, and measures 12½ Feet in breadth.

The central summit rises two hundred Feet above Jerusalem, and presents a fine view of the city, and indeed of the whole region, including the mountains of Ephraim on the north, the valley of the Jordan on the east, a part of the Dead Sea on the southeast, and beyond it Kerak in the mountains of Moab. It was probably near Bethany, and not as tradition says on the middle summit, that our lord ascended to heaven, Luke 24:50 Acts 1:12 , though superstition has built the "Church of the Ascension" on the pretended spot, and shows the print of his Feet on the rock whence he ascended! From the summit, three days before his death, he beheld Jerusalem, and wept over it, recalling the long ages of his more than parental care and grieving over its approaching ruin
Hair - Regarding the latter (a) it is used to signify the minutest detail, as that which illustrates the exceeding care and protection bestowed by God upon His children, Matthew 10:30 ; Luke 12:7 ; 21:18 ; Acts 27:34 ; (b) as the Jews swore by the "hair," the Lord used the natural inability to make one "hair" white or black, as one of the reasons for abstinence from oaths, Matthew 5:36 ; (c) while long "hair" is a glory to a woman (see B), and to wear it loose or dishevelled is a dishonor, yet the woman who wiped Christ's Feet with her "hair" (in place of the towel which Simon the Pharisee omitted to provide), despised the shame in her penitent devotion to the Lord (slaves were accustomed to wipe their masters' Feet), Luke 7:38,44 (RV, "hair"); see also John 11:2 ; 12:3 ; (d) the dazzling whiteness of the head and "hair" of the Son of Man in the vision of Revelation 1:14 is suggestive of the holiness and wisdom of "the Ancient of Days;" (e) the long "hair" of the spirit-beings described as locusts in Revelation 9:8 is perhaps indicative of their subjection of their satanic master (cp
Jachin And Boaz - 907 a ), was about 31 Feet, while their diameter works out at about 6 1 /2 Feet. The capitals appear from 1 Kings 7:41 to have been globular or spheroidal in form, each about 8 1 /2 Feet in height, giving a total height for the complete pillars of roughly 40 Feet
Salutations - All the forms of salutation now observed appear to have been in general use in the days of our Lord; for he represents a servant as falling down at the Feet of his master, when he had a favour to ask; and an inferior servant, as paying the same compliment to the first, who belonged, it would seem, to a higher class; "The servant, therefore, fell down and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all. And his fellow servant fell down at his Feet, and besought him, saying, Have patience with me, and I will pay thee all,"...
Matthew 18:26 ; Matthew 18:29 . When Jairus solicited the Saviour to go and heal his daughter, he fell down at his Feet: the Apostle Peter, on another occasion, seems to have fallen down at his knees, in the same manner as the modern Arabs fall down at the knees of a superior. The woman who was afflicted with an issue of blood touched the hem of his garment, and the Syro-Phenician woman fell down at his Feet
Jordan - He computed it to be about thirty yards broad, and found it nine Feet deep at the brink. Chateaubriand makes it six or seven Feet deep close at the shore, and about fifty paces in breadth a considerable distance from its entrance into the Dead Sea. According to the computation of Volney, it is hardly sixty paces wide at the mouth; but the author of "Letters from Palestine" states, that the stream when it enters the lake Asphaltites, is deep and rapid, rolling a considerable volume of waters; the width appears from two to three hundred Feet, and the current is so violent, that a Greek servant belonging to the author, who attempted to cross it, though strong, active, and an excellent swimmer, found the undertaking impracticable. This fact is distinctly recorded by the sacred historian: "And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the Feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water; for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest," Joshua 3:15 . It no longer, indeed, rolls down into the Salt Sea so majestic a stream as in the days of Joshua; yet its ordinary depth is still about ten or twelve Feet, so that it cannot even at present be passed but at certain places. Pococke has made on the river Euphrates: The bed of the Euphrates, says that writer, was measured by some English gentlemen at Beer, and found to be six hundred and thirty yards broad; but the river only two hundred and fourteen yards over; then they thought it to be nine or ten Feet deep in the middle; and were informed that it sometimes rises twelve Feet perpendicularly
Sinai - In the highest and central part of this region, seven thousand Feet above the level of the sea, rises the sacred summit of Horeb or Sinai. Abrupt cliffs of granite, from six to eight hundred Feet in height, whose surface is blackened by the sun, surround the avenues leading to the elevated region to which the name of Sinai is specifically applied. At the end of three hours, we entered these cliffs by a narrow defile about forty Feet in breadth, with perpendicular granite rocks on both sides. The road wound at their Feet along the edge of a precipice, and amid masses of rock that had fallen from above. Robinson takes to be the true Sinai, rises abruptly on the south side of the plain some fifteen hundred Feet. Catharine lies in the ravine east of the true Sinai; while Mount Catharine is the south peak of the western ridge, lying southwest of Jebel Musa and rising more than one thousand Feet higher.

Lebanon - The western ridge is generally higher than the eastern, and several of its peaks are thought to be towards, 10,000 Feet high. An Arab poet says of the highest peak of Lebanon, "The Sannin bears winter on his head, spring upon his shoulders, and autumn in his bosom, while summer lies sleeping at his Feet
Joram - Almost immediately after leaving Lake Huleh, which is 7 Feet above the level of the Mediterranean, the Jordan begins to fall below the level of the sea; the Lake of Tiberias is 682 Feet, the Dead Sea 1292 Feet, below it. There is not another example of such a marked depression on the surface of our globe, except with tracts covered by the seas; the other cases which may be cited attain much less depths; the greatest is about 300 Feet in the Sahara, while, taking into account the depth of the Dead Sea (1300 Feet), we get a total of almost 2600 Feet. The southern end of this depression is, from the point of view of the flow of water, a transverse ridge reaching 650 Feet above the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, and situated about 46 miles from Akabah and more than 73 miles from the Dead Sea. But the pluvial period (Pliocene) brought about a considerable raising of the aqueous surface enclosed; the Jordan valley became a lake which must have been about 200 miles long and more than 2000 Feet deep. On the lateral slopes of the valley traces of the heights to which the waters rose are still distinguishable; some of the most notable of these traces are 1180, others 347, Feet above the present level of the Dead Sea. The most northerly of its sources, the one which gives rise to the stream which covers the longest distance, is found near Hasbeya, at 1846 Feet above the sea, at the foot of the Great Hermon. The source of Tell el-Kadi is double, in the sense that it streams forth, at 500 Feet above the sea, in two places close together under a hillock which is about 300 Feet broad and covered with tall trees, and rises in a very striking manner from the plain, over which it towers about 60 Feet. Lastly, we find the ‘river of Banias,’ Nahr-Banias, which starts at 1200 Feet above the sea from a grotto, the ancient shrine of the Semitic, and then of the Graeco-Roman, gods, well known under the name of Paneion, and round which arose the city known under the names of Caesarea Philippi and Paneas, and now called Banias, a corruption of the latter name. ...
The Leddan and the river of Banias meet at an altitude of 148 Feet, after the Leddan has flowed 5 miles.

As soon as it leaves Lake Huleh, the Jordan begins to flow below the level of the sea, and falls almost 700 Feet in a distance of 10 miles. ...
The Ghôr is hemmed in on either side by chains of mountains, or at least hills, of variable height, but sometimes rising 1500 or even 1800 Feet above the bed of the river.

Feet Gestures 1. To shake the dust off of one's Feet is a sign of contempt and separation (Matthew 10:14 ; Acts 13:51 ). To wash the Feet of another is to humble oneself as a servant (John 13:5-12 ). To cover one's Feet is to relieve oneself with some degree of privacy (Judges 3:24 ; 1 Samuel 24:3 ). To uncover one's Feet or to walk barefooted indicates grief or repentance ( Cherubim - In Solomon’s Temple there were two colossal cherubim whose out-spread wings filled the most holy place (1 Kings 6:23-28), but in the ideal description of the Tabernacle two much smaller figures are represented as standing on the ark of the covenant itself (which was only about four Feet long), facing each other and overshadowing the place of God’s presence. 236) inclines to the view that they were ‘composite figures, with the Feet of oxen, the wings of eagles, the manes of lions, and the body and face of men

Naked - Moses at the hush was commanded by the Lord to put off his shoes from off his Feet, for the place whereon he stood was holy ground. (Exodus 3:5) Hence perhaps arose the custom of the priests ministering in the temple with their Feet uncovered; and the frequent washings appointed in the Jewish ordinances had a gospel significancy, to intimate both the uncleanness and nakedness of our poor fallen nature, and both needing the cleansing by Christ's blood, and the clothing in Christ's righteousness, with which to appear before God

Sheep - A common sheep of this sort, without the head, Feet, skin, and entrails, weighs from sixty to eighty pounds, of which the tail itself is usually ten or fifteen pounds, and when the animal is fattened, twice or thrice that weight, and very inconvenient to its owner. A recent traveller in Palestine witnessed the shearing of a sheep in the immediate vicinity of Gethsemane; and the silent, unresisting submission of the poor animal, thrown with its Feet bound upon the earth, its sides rudely pressed by the shearer's knees, while every movement threatened to lacerate the flesh, was a touching commentary on the prophet's description of Christ, Isaiah 53:7 Acts 8:32-35
Pinnacle - As the top of the portico, according to Josephus, was 100 Feet above the pavement, the drop from this elevation to the bottom of the Kidron Valley would be about 300 Feet; and if ‘the pinnacle,’ as some suppose, was a turret or spire at the eastern end, marking the south-east corner of the enclosure, then its height would have to be added to this vertical distance
Temple, Solomon's - As the hill on which the temple was to be built did not afford sufficient level space, a huge wall of solid masonry of great height, in some places more than 200 Feet high, was raised across the south of the hill, and a similar wall on the eastern side, and in the spaces between were erected many arches and pillars, thus raising up the general surface to the required level.

Ark of the Covenant - a small chest or coffer, three Feet nine inches in length, two Feet three inches in breadth, and two Feet three inches in height; in which were contained the golden pot that had manna, Aaron's rod, and the tables of the covenant, Numbers 17:10 ; Hebrews 9:4 .

The annual rise of the river also varies exceedingly in different parts of its course, being twenty Feet greater where the river is narrow than in Lower Egypt
Bind - With his hands he did good deeds; with his Feet he ran on good errands. The works of his hands and of his Feet are represented by the suit which he wore at the wedding.

Anointing (2) - He was a Pharisee of the better sort, yet he shared the pride of his order and put a difference betwixt Jesus and the other guests, withholding from Him the customary courtesies: the kiss of welcome, the ablution of the Feet, the anointing of the head. As He reclined at table, she stole to His couch and, stooping over His Feet, rained hot tears upon them, wiped them with her flowing tresses, kissed them, and anointed them with the ointment. And what part did Mary take? She entered the room with her hair loose and an alabaster vase of precious ointment in her hand, and, approaching the Lord’s couch, poured the ointment over His Feet and wiped them with her hair. (3) They represent the nameless woman as pouring the ointment not on the Lord’s Feet but on His head, and say nothing of her wiping His Feet with her hair. His account is historical, and it would stand so in the Apostolic tradition; but the Synoptic editors or, more probably, the catechisers in their oral repetition of the tradition, wondering, since they did not know who the woman was, at the strangeness of her action, substituted ‘head’ for ‘feet,’ and then omitted the unintelligible circumstance of her wiping His Feet with her hair
no'ah - Taking 21 inches for the cubit, the ark would be 525 Feet in length, 87 Feet 6 inches in breadth and 52 Feet 6 inches in height. Upon the top of this chest or ark is perched a bird, whilst another flies toward it carrying a branch between its Feet. Let us suppose that, the hour of judgment having arrived, the land began gradually to sink (as the tract in the Run of Cutch sank in the year 1819) equably for forty days at the rate of about 400 Feet per day a rate not twice greater than that at which the tide rises in the Straits of Magellan, and which would have rendered itself apparent as but a persistent inward flowing of the sea. The depression, which, by extending to the Euxine Sea and the Persian Gulf on the one hand and the Gulf of Finland on the other, would open up by three separate channels the "fountains of the great deep," and which included an area of 2000 miles each way, would, at the end of the fortieth day, be sunk in its centre to the depth of 16,000 Feet, --sufficient to bury the loftiest mountains of the district; and yet, having a gradient of declination of but sixteen Feet per mile, the contour of its hills and plains would remain apparently what they had been before, and the doomed inhabitants would, but the water rising along the mountain sides, and one refuge after another swept away

Gadarenes - It forms a most interesting miracle, in the account of Christ's ministry, (See Mark 5:1-30) Who can say, but that the Lord Jesus directed his steps to this very spot, purposely for the salvation of this poor man, and him only?

Shushan - The first is, at the lowest computation, a mile in circumference, and nearly a hundred Feet in height; and the other, although not quite so high, is double the circuit of the former.

Coney - They do not stand upright upon their Feet, but seem to steal along as in fear, their belly being nearly close to the ground; advancing a few steps at a time, and then pausing.

Carmel - Its greatest height is about 1,500 Feet; at its northeastern foot runs the brook Kishon, and a little farther north, the river Belus. The foot of the northern part approaches the water, so that, seen from the hills north-east of Acre, mount Carmel appears as if "dipping his Feet in the western sea;" farther south it retires more inland, so that between the mountain and the sea there is an extensive plain covered with fields and olive-trees
Lift - ...

Palm Tree - ("The palm tree frequently attains a height of eighty Feet, but more commonly forty to fifty. Its trunk is straight, tall and unbroken, terminating in a crown of emerald-green plumes, like a diadem of gigantic ostrich-feathers; these leaves are frequently twenty Feet in length, droop slightly at the ends, and whisper musically in the breeze
Canaan - The northern boundary is at the lofty mountains of Lebanon and Hermon, some peaks of which are ten thousand Feet high. Its valley is deeply sunk, and from its source to the Dead sea it has a descent of two thousand Feet. The tableland of Galilee may be nine hundred or one thousand Feet above the Mediterranean. From this plain the land again rises towards the south; mount Gerizim being 2,300 Feet, Jerusalem 2,400, and Hebron 2,600 above the sea. Indian corn grows there eleven Feet high, and grapes are still produced that almost rival the clusters of Eshcol. Many of them escaped to other lands; and fragments of almost all the nations remained in Judea, subject to the Israelites, but snares to their Feet and thorns in their sides
Temple - The whole area enclosed by the outer walls formed a square of about 600 Feet; but the sanctuary itself was comparatively small, inasmuch as it was intended only for the ministrations of the priests, the congregation of the people assembling in the courts. These gates still exist at a distance of about 365 Feet from the southwestern angle, and are perhaps the only architectural features of the temple of Herod which remain in situ . This entrance consists of a double archway of Cyclopean architecture on the level of the ground, opening into a square vestibule measuring 40 Feet each way. From this a double funnel nearly 200 Feet in length, leads to a flight of steps which rise to the surface in the court of the temple, exactly at that gateway of the inner temple which led to the altar, and is one of the four gateways on this side by which any one arriving from Ophel would naturally wish to enter the inner enclosure. The cloisters in the west, north and east sides were composed of double rows of Corinthian columns, 25 cubits or 37 Feet 6 inches in height, with flat roof, and resting against the outer wall of the temple. The breadth of the centre aisle was 95 Feet of the side aisles, 30 from centre to centre of the pillars; their height 50 Feet, and that of the centre aisle 100 Feet. Its section was thus something in excess of that of York Cathedral, while its total length was one stadium or 600 Greek Feet, or 100 Feet in excess of York or our largest Gothic cathedrals
Cross - The form of a cross being such as has been already described, the body of the criminal was fastened to the upright piece by nailing the Feet to it, and on the other transverse piece generally by nailing the hands on each side. This way, it is said, Peter chose, out of respect to his master, Jesus Christ, not thinking himself worthy to be crucified like him; though the common way of crucifying was by fastening the criminal with nails, one through each hand, and one through both Feet, or one through each of them; for this was not always performed in the same manner; the ancients sometimes represent Jesus Christ crucified with four nails, and sometimes with three. The text of the gospel shows clearly that Jesus Christ was fastened to the cross with nails, and the Psalmist (Psalms 22:16 , ) had foretold long before, that they should pierce his hands and his Feet; but there are great disputes concerning the number of these nails. But several are of opinion that our Saviour's hands and Feet were pierced with three nails only, viz. one on each hand, and one through both his Feet: and the custom of the Latins is rather for this last opinion; for the generality of the old crucifixes made in the Latin church have only three nails

Oil - The earliest method of expression seems to have been that of treading the olives with the Feet, to which allusion is made in Micah 6:15, and perhaps also in Deuteronomy 33:24 This process is unknown in modern times (Thomson, LB Mephibosheth - But in her haste she let the little prince fall, and from that fall Mephibosheth was lame in his Feet all his days. And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may show the kindness of God to him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his Feet. So Mephibosheth dwelt in Jerusalem, for he did eat continually at the king's table, and was lame on both his Feet. But Mephibosheth was lame on both his Feet. Our too otiose English is unjust to Mephibosheth; or else it has taken Mephibosheth's infirmity in his Feet much too seriously.

For Mephibosheth had not dressed his wooden Feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes for grief, so he said, from the day that the king departed. And in the manifold wisdom of God it is all ordered and overruled, as if both the wheel, and He whose wheel it is, and all the men, and movements, and governments, and churches, and everything else that is tied to that wheel were all tied to it and lifted, now up and now down, in order to discover us to ourselves, and to send us to His Feet, who will not cast away even Mephibosheth himself if he comes to His Feet in time
Jeru'Salem - Hebron indeed is higher still by some hundred Feet, and from the south, accordingly (even from Bethlehem), the approach to Jerusalem is by a slight descent.

So steep is the fall of the ravines, so trench-like their character, and so close do they keep to the promontory at whose Feet they run, as to leave on the beholder almost the impression of the ditch at the foot of a fortress rather than of valleys formed by nature.

Have you no washing to do yourselves at home? Wash your own hearts, you hypocrites

Sandemanians - Their kiss of charity used on this occasion at the admission of a new member, and at other times when they deem it necessary and proper; their weekly collection before the Lord's supper, for the support of the poor, and defraying other expenses; mutual exhortation; abstinence from blood and things strangled; washing each other's Feet, when, as a deed of mercy, it might be an expression of love, the precept concerning which, as well as other precepts, they understand literally: community of goods, so far as that every one is to consider all that he has in his possession and power, liable to the calls of the poor and the church; and the unlawfulness of laying up treasures upon earth, by setting them apart for any distant, future, and uncertain use
Sacrifice - But, it may well be asked, who were the priests in the days of Cain and Abel? Or, what gain could this superstition be to them, when the one gave away his fruits, and the other his animal sacrifice, without being at liberty to taste the least part of it? And it is worth remarking, that what this author wittily calls the best bits and appropriates to the priests, appear to have been the skin of the burnt-offering among the Jews, and the skin and Feet among the Heathens

Nabal - Had Nabal kissed Abigail that morning; had he kissed her hand; had he kissed her Feet; he would have been living to this day; and when he died like a shock of corn fully ripe, all Israel would have mourned that they had lost him, and David would have sung a psalm over him that we would have put upon the tombstones of all our magnanimous and much-lamented men.

Fig Tree - Therefore, we must look for another of the fig kind, that better answers the purpose referred to by Moses, Genesis 3:7 ; and as the fruit of the banana tree, is often, by the most ancient authors, called a fig, may we not suppose this to have been the fig tree of paradise? Pliny, describing this tree, says that its leaves were the greatest and most shady of all others; and as the leaves of these are often six Feet long, and about two broad, are thin, smooth, and very flexible, they may be deemed more proper than any other for the covering spoken of, especially since they may be easily joined together with the numerous threadlike filaments, which may, without labour, be peeled from the body of the tree

Self-Examination - ‘Is this self-consciousness a good thing? Does it not hinder action, destroy energy?

What numbers does it bring to the Feet of the spiritual director!’ (F
Service - ...
Throughout the parabolic teaching of Jesus the use of this word is sufficiently frequent to be significant; but if He had given no other teaching in this connexion, His mind would have been sufficiently expressed in His acted parable on the occasion when He Himself stooped to the most menial of all menial service, and washed the Feet of His disciples

Paul as a Student - Perhaps the very finest mind that had been born among men since the beginning of the world entered on the study of Old Testament theology when Saul of Tarsus sat down at Gamaliel's Feet. What in the world does he mean?

Did not king Nebuchadnezzar fall upon his face, and worship Daniel, and command that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours to Daniel? What could it have been, then, that kept Daniel's heart so sweetly humble through all that, till Daniel was a man greatly beloved of Him who resisteth the proud and giveth grace to the humble? It was prayer that did it

Philistia - After the Babylonian captivity (Ezekiel 25:15-17) the Philistines vented their "old hatred" on the Jews, for which God as He foretold "executed vengeance on them with furious rebukes, and destroyed the remnant," namely, by Psammetichus, Necho (Jeremiah 25:20), and Nebuchadnezzar who overran their cities on his way to Egypt (Jeremiah 47), and finally by Alexander the Great, as foretold (Zechariah 9:5-6, "the king shall perish from Gaza"; Alexander bound Betis the satrap to his chariot by thongs thrust through his Feet, and dragged round the city; the conqueror slew 10,000, and sold the rest as slaves: Zephaniah 2:4-5)

Worship - They started forward, the gifted men, so eager to impart what had been given them, that sometimes two or more rose at once and spoke together;‡ and sometimes when one was speaking the message came to another, and he leapt to his Feet,§ increasing the emotion and taking from the edification.

Claim - The action of the woman who anointed Christ and bathed His Feet with tears is shown to be right, inasmuch as the claim of a passing guest was greater than that of those who were always present (Mark 14:3, Luke 7:37-38, John 12:7-8)
Confession (of Sin) - When Peter cries, ‘Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord’ (Luke 5:8), and when the sinful woman in the house of the Pharisee silently makes confession to Jesus as she washes His Feet with her tears (Luke 7:37-38), it is too much to say of these confessions, in Pliny’s language (Ep

Stephen - ...
The members of the council, remembering probably the use of similar language by Jesus when on trial before them (Matthew 26:64), being at all events resolved to treat as blasphemy Stephen's assertion of the divine exaltation of Him whom they had crucified, cried aloud, stopped their ear's (unconsciously realizing Stephen's picture of them: Acts 7:51; Psalms 58:4), ran upon him with one accord (contrast "with one accord," Acts 4:24), and cast him out of the city (as was the custom in order to put out from the midst of them such a pollution: 1 Kings 21:13; Luke 4:29; Hebrews 13:12) and stoned him, all sharing in the execution, the witnesses casting the first stones (Deuteronomy 13:9-10; Deuteronomy 17:7; John 8:7), after having stripped off the outer garments for greater ease in the bloody work, and laid them at the Feet of Saul who thereby signified his consent to Stephen's execution (Acts 8:1; Acts 22:20)
Mill - This was the feat of a woman, for the mill is worked only by females; it was not a piece of a mill stone, but the rider, the distinguishing name of the upper mill stone, which literally rides upon the other, and is a piece or division of the mill: it was a stone of two Feet broad, and therefore fully sufficient, when thrown from such a height, to produce the effect mentioned in the narrative
