1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Original Sin
Not sin in the ordinary sense of a transgression of the law of God which one commits deliberately. It is one of the consequences of the sin of our first parent, Adam. As father of the human race, he was endowed with immortality, with reason and will in perfect control of the lower appetites, and with Divine grace enabling him to know and serve God in a manner far beyond the capacity of his natural powers, and therefore in a state above nature: the supernatural state. Through him these endowments were to be transmitted to the entire human race. When by his sin he lost them for himself, they were lost also for his descendants. Now the loss or privation of Divine grace, the chief consequence of sin, means the privation of the supernatural goodness to which God destined us, and therefore it is called our original stain or sin. Other consequences of Adam's sin are death, and concupiscence, or the rebellion of our lower appetites against reason and will. This concupiscence, though often the occasion of sin, is not in itself sinful; it is not original sin, as the early Protestants held, nor does it consist, as Luther believed, in such a decadence of our nature as to leave our reason incapable of understanding, our will without freedom, and our whole nature evil. Original sin does not so corrupt our natural powers as to render them incapable of natural virtues: it deprives us of the grace needed for virtues beyond our natural powers. All this is based on Holy Scripture, particularly on Saint Paul's Epistle to the Romans 5: "Wherefore as by one man sin entered into this world, and by sin death; and so death passed upon all men, in whom all have sinned." It is the subject of the Fifth Session of the Council of Trent.
1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Justice, Original
The aggregate of all those organically correlated prerogatives which constituted the state of our first parents in Paradise. This primitive state before the Fall included the gift of sanctifying grace, exemption from concupiscence, bodily immortality, habitual infused science, and the non-necessity of suffering. The first named gift is strictly supernatural; the others, less strictly supernatural, and more commonly called preternatural gifts, were allied with this to form the rich endowment which Adam was to transmit to all his descendants.

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Sin, Original
This term is often used by theologians, but they are not agreed as to its signification. It is not found in scripture. Man has derived an evil nature from Adam, but his sins are his own. Death passed upon all men because of Adam's sin, but all have sinned. Romans 5:12 .
Charles Buck Theological Dictionary - Original Sin
CARM Theological Dictionary - Original Sin
This is a term used to describe the effect of Adam's sin on his descendants (Romans 5:12-21). Specifically, it is our inheritance of a sinful nature from Adam. The sinful nature originated with Adam and is passed down from parent to child. We are by nature children of wrath (Ephesians 2:3).

King James Dictionary - Original
1. Origin. See Origin, with which it accords in signification. 2. Fountain source cause that from which any thing primarily proceeds that which gives existence or beginning. The apostasy is believed to have been the origin of moral evil. The origin of many of our customs is lost in antiquity. Nations, like individuals, are ambitious to trace their descent from an honorable origin. ORIG'INAL, a. L. orginialis.
1. First in order preceding all others as the original state of man the original laws of a country original rights or powers the original question in debate. 2. Primitive pristine as the original perfection of Adam. Original sin, as applied to Adam, was his first act of disobedience in eating the forbidden fruit as applied to his posterity, it is understood to mean either the sin of Adam imputed to his posterity, or that corruption of nature, or total depravity, which has been derived from him in consequence of his apostasy. On this subject divines are not agreed.
In strictness, original sin is an improper use of words, as sin, Exodus 6termini, implies volition and the transgression of a known rule of duty by a moral agent. But this application of the words has been established by long use, and it serves to express ideas which many wise and good men entertain on this subject.
3. Having the power to originate new thoughts or combinations of thought as an original genius.

Abba - ]'>[1]...
Lightfoot on Galatians 4:6 argues that the bilingual expression is a liturgical formula originating with Hellenistic Jews, who, while clinging to the Original word which was consecrated by long usage, added to it the Greek equivalent; but he supports an alternative theory that it took its rise among Jews of Palestine after they had become acquainted with the Greek language, and is simply an expression of importunate entreaty, and an example of that verbal usage whereby the same idea is conveyed in different forms for the sake of emphasis. ; but is rather an Original formula, the genesis of which is to be sought further back, perhaps in the actual words used by our Lord Himself. It is significant however of the limited extent of strictly Jewish Christianity that we find no other Original examples of the use than these three.

Platonists - The outlines of Plato's philosophical system were as follows:—that there is one God, eternal, immutable, and immaterial; perfect in wisdom and goodness, omniscient, and omnipresent: that this all-perfect Being formed the universe out of a mass of eternally preexisting matter, to which he gave form and arrangement: that there is in matter a necessary, but blind and refractory force, which resists the will of the supreme Artificer, so that he cannot perfectly execute his designs; and this is the cause of the mixture of good and evil which is found in the material world: that the soul of man was derived by emanation from God; but that this emanation was not immediate, but through the intervention of the soul of the world, which was itself debased by some material admixture; that the relation which the human soul, in its Original constitution, bears to matter, is the source of moral evil; that when God formed the universe, he separated from the soul of the world inferior souls, equal in number to the stars, and assigned to each its proper celestial abode: that these souls were sent down to earth to be imprisoned in mortal bodies; hence arose the depravity and misery to which human nature is liable: that the soul is immortal; and by disengaging itself from all animal passions, and rising above sensible objects to the contemplation of the world of intelligence, it may be prepared to return to its Original habitation: that matter never suffers annihilation, but that the world will remain for ever; and that by the action of its animating principle it accomplishes certain periods, within which everything returns to its ancient place and state. The new academy almost entirely relinquished the Original doctrines of Plato, and verged toward the skeptical philosophy
Theodotion, Otherwise Theodotus - It deviates from the Original in every possible way; transposes, expands, abridges, adds or omits, at pleasure. He seems, moreover, to have found the task of bringing its text to conform to the Original by the aid of Theodotion's a hopeless one, as we may judge by his asterisks, obeli, and marginalia in the two MSS. The chief, and apparently the only, ground for this is his practice of frequently transliterating words of his Original. He proves at least that he diligently consulted the Original, and often shews a wise discretion in forbearing to translate a word whose meaning cannot be determined, or for which the Greek language has no equivalent

New Platonics - Ammonius supposed that true philosophy derived its origin and its consistence from the eastern nations, that it was taught to the Egyptians by Hermes, that it was brought from them to the Greeks, and preserved in its Original purity by Plato, who was the best interpreter of Hermes and the other oriental sages. He maintained that all the different religions which prevailed in the world were in their Original integrity, conformable to this ancient philosophy: but it unfortunately happened that the symbols and fictions under which, according to the ancient manner, the ancients delivered their precepts and doctrines, were in process of time erroneously understood, both by priests and people, in a literal sense; that in consequence of this, the invisible beings and demons whom the Supreme Deity had placed in the different parts of the universe as the ministers of his providence, were by the suggestions of superstition converted into gods, and worshipped with a multiplicity of vain ceremonies

Hebrew Language - Jacob and Laban, it is clear, by the names they gave to the cairn, or memorial of stones, spoke two different dialects; and it is nearly equally evident, that the language of Laban was the dialect of Ur of the Chaldees, the Original speech of the Hebrew race. Sharpe adopts the opinion, that the Hebrew was the Original language; not indeed that the Hebrew is the unvaried language of our first parents, but that it was the general language of men at the dispersion; and, however it might have been improved and altered from the first speech of our first parents, it was the Original of all the languages, or almost all the languages, rather dialects, that have since arisen in the world. Arguments have also been deduced from the nature and genius of the Hebrew language, in order to prove that it was the Original language, neither improved nor debased by foreign idioms

Pronunciation of Proper Names - , of Oxford, Originally contributed to the Queen’s Printers’ Teachers’ Bible of 1877 (Eyre & Spottiswoode); (2) that contributed by Professor W. An examination of the lists will show the very considerable extent of the variation which exists even among those who may be regarded as guides in the matter, and it will show also that a great part of the variation may be accounted for by the degree to which the Editors of the respective lists are disposed to give weight to the forms of the word in the Original, or to what may be considered the popular and current pronunciation. In particular, the Original pronunciation is not the only, nor perhaps the chief, influence. If it were better understood how impossible it is to pronounce Hebrew names as the ancient Hebrews did, there would be less temptation to lay stress on the Original as the best guide. Here it is impossible to conform our pronunciation to that of the Original language; yet if we are not to pronounce at haphazard, and follow each his own taste and habit, we must reflect upon the conditions, and frame at least general rules for our guidance. Professor Stevenson holds that the influences ‘which must affect the treatment of Scripture names are (1) The Original pronunciation; (2) the characteristic tendencies of purely English speech; (3) the fixed customary pronunciation of certain words resembling others less common. The weak point of the position is that the analogies founded on by one scholar will not be equally familiar, or commend themselves to the same extent, to another; and it may well appear to many that Professor Stevenson in his list of proper names concedes too much to popular usage, and would in some cases attain a more desirable result by approximating more closely to the form of the Original. ...
(3) The question often arises in the case of names of three or more syllables, especially when the last two are significant in the Original, whether the accent should be placed on the penultimate or thrown farther back in accordance with general English practice . Professor Stevenson says: ‘The English stress accent in ancient foreign names is determined, with limitations, by the Original length of the vowels, not by the Original stress. , notwithstanding the length of the penultimate in the Original. Let the reader ascertain in all doubtful cases the form and pronunciation of the name in the Original,* Servant - Old and New Testaments alike use the one word ‘servant’ to translate a variety of words from the Original languages. ...

Witness (2) - ...
What constitutes, according to the NT, the equipment and competence of a witness of Jesus Christ? Were His Original disciples the only genuine witnesses? Are not those also ‘who have not seen and yet have believed’ (John 20:29) competent witnesses? In the first place, then, let us inquire how the Original witnesses were prepared for their office. The Original disciples, it is true, were the only eye-and ear-witnesses. The Original heralds of Christ did indeed lay a certain stress upon their being eye- and ear-witnesses. Even for these Original disciples the time must come when their fellowship with their Lord should be wholly independent of the senses. It is clear from the NT that after Pentecost the Original disciples were immovable in their persuasion that they possessed and had fellowship with their exalted Lord. What the Original witnesses enjoyed, others should enjoy too—the same immediate fellowship, the same certainty. And as was the design, so also is the actual experience under the gospel: where the word is truly preached the Spirit does energize and seal it, and those who believe receive the same certainty as the Original disciples possessed. ...
Have, then, the Original witnesses no peculiar privilege and authority? So far as personal certainty is concerned, they have no advantage over true believers of any age. Nevertheless, in the economy of the gospel dispensation, the word of the Original witnesses is manifestly of cardinal importance
Apocrypha - ...
Most of these books are found in their Original form in Greek, with the exceptions noted below, and not in the Hebrew; therefore the Jewish religious leaders did not regard them as inspired. The book is known in a Greek Original, though it was translated, according to Jerome, from a Hebrew Original that was current in his day (end of 4th cent. The Original text is Greek. Its Original language is Greek, though there is reason for believing that Sir 1:1 to Sir 3:8 was first written in Hebrew. Its Original is Greek. Its Greek Original, if it had one, has been lost, and the work is extant in Latin, Syriac, Arabic, Ethiopic, and Armenian. The character of the matter shows that some Christian interpolated the Original to give it a Christian colouring. The book was Originally written in Hebrew, and in this language about one half of it has recently been discovered in Egypt and published. Its Original text was Greek
Text, Versions, And Languages of ot - The OT, except certain small sections, was written in Hebrew , and it has been preserved in its Original language. But Jeremiah 10:11 , Daniel 2:4 to Daniel 7:28 , Ezra 4:8 to Ezra 6:18 ; Ezra 7:12-26 are in Aramaic , though it is disputed in the case of Daniel 2:4 to Daniel 7:28 whether this was the Original language, or that of an Aramaic version which has replaced a Hebrew Original. ...
Though in the oldest Hebrew MSS of the Bible the consonants of the Original text are accompanied by the vowels which express at once the traditional pronunciation and the traditional interpretation of the text, it is now as generally accepted that the vowels formed no part of the Original text as that the earth revolves round the sun. The text of the OT has been transmitted to us through circumstances singularly different from those which mark the transmission of the NT text; and the results are a difference in the relative value attaching to different classes of evidence, and a much less close and sure approach to the Original text when the best use has been made of the material at our disposal. For example, the H in the word BhBR א M ( Genesis 2:4 ) is written small in all Hebrew MSS; it was doubtless written Originally so by accident or owing to pressure of room; but under the influence of a school of Jewish scholars, of whom R. The value of the Massorah in perpetuating a form of the Hebrew text for many centuries has doubtless been great; but it has also long served to obscure the fact that the text which it has perpetuated with such slight variation or mutilation was already removed by many centuries from the Original text and had suffered considerably. The vowels, it must be repeated, are merely an interpretation of the Original text of Scripture, and not part of it, and different Hebrew MSS show as a matter of fact two distinct systems of vocalization, with different symbols. Though in some respects, as for example through expansion by insertion of matter from parallel passages, the Samaritan is more remote than the Jewish from the Original text, it has also preserved better readings, often in agreement with the LXX [7] , represent different lines of tradition; in so far as the Original text of the LXX [7] ; (2) the detection of the Hebrew text which lay before the translators; and (3) In cases where the Hebrew text there recorded differs from the present Hebrew text, the determination of the more Original of the variants. A complete solution of the problems will never be reached, for it will be no more possible to establish beyond dispute the Original text of the LXX Manasseh - ]'>[2] of Judges 18:30 Manasseh is a scribal change for dogmatic purposes, the Original being Moses (see Gershom, 1). ‘It would appear,’ so runs the conclusion, ‘that in the Original story the epithet Manasseh was a fitting title of Jacob himself, which might be borne by his worshippers as in the case of Gad. ’ But it is extremely unlikely that Jacob was Originally regarded as a deity, as Luther ( ZATW [10] ’s account of the settlement of Reuben and Gad ( Numbers 32:1-42 ) there was nothing said Originally of this half-tribe being associated with them. As we have seen in Judges 5:14 , where Machir takes the place of Manasseh, he appears to be in possession on the West; and Machir, the son of Manasseh, is said to have gone to Gilead and taken it ( Numbers 32:39 ), and if so, he must have operated from his Original seat
Matthew - There has also of late been great difference of opinion concerning the language in which this Gospel was Originally written. Erasmus was one of the first who contended that the present Greek is the Original; and he has been followed by Le Clerc, Wetstein, Basnage, Whitby, Jortin, Hug, and many other learned men. It is, however, universally allowed, that the Greek translation was made very early, and that it was more used than the Original. Matthew's Original Gospel was commonly spoken, that Original would soon be forgotten; and the translation into Greek, the language then generally understood, would be substituted in its room. This early and exclusive use of the Greek translation is a strong proof of its correctness, and leaves us but little reason to lament the loss of the Original
Judas Iscariot - Matthias infers that the inclusion of the traitor in the number of the apostles and his obtaining a share in their ministry was a mysterious dispensation by which was fulfilled the prediction of Psalms 41:9, so recently quoted by our Lord Himself (John 13:18), together with its necessary consequences as foreshadowed in two other Psalms (Psalms 69:25; Psalms 109:8): that is, if John 13:20 be an Original part of St. In Psalms 41:9 the actual wording bears little likeness to the Septuagint , being a more literal rendering of the Hebrew, while its Original reference is to some treacherous friend (e. In Psalms 69:25 the text is more exact, but the Original figure employed (ἡ ἔπαυλις αὐτῶν, not αὐτοῦ) suggests a nomad encampment of tents rendered desolate because of the cruel persecutions which their occupants had practised, while Psalms 109:8 has in view one particular official, like Doeg or Ahithophel, who has been false to his trust, and therefore it is, to our modern notions, more appropriately and with less strain transferred to the case of Judas
Jubilee - ) The 50th Jubilee, after seven weeks of years, when alienated lands returned to the Original owners and Hebrew bondservants were freed (Leviticus 25:8-16; Leviticus 25:23-55; Leviticus 27:16-25; Numbers 36:4). The "original proprietor" or "the nearest of kin" (goel ) could redeem the land at any time. The Jubilee secured rest and restoration for the body politic, to recover that general equality which Joshua's Original settlement contemplated; hence no religious observances were prescribed, simply the trumpets sounded the glad note of restoration

ir-ha-Heres - of the modern Cairo, in ancient times the chief centre of the sun-worship in Egypt, and full of obelisks dedicated to the sun-god Ra (‘Cleopatra’s needle,’ now on the Thames Embankment, was Originally one of these obelisks, erected by Thothmes iii. These facts have indeed no bearing on Isaiah 19:18 , supposing the passage to be really Isaiah’s; but many modern scholars are of opinion that Isaiah 19:16-25 (Isa 18:16 25) are not Isaiah’s, and even those who do not go so far as this would be ready to grant that Isaiah 19:18 b (from ‘one shall be called’) might be a later addition to the Original text of Isaiah. MSS), being the Original reading, which was altered afterwards by the Jews of Palestine into heres , ‘destruction,’ in order to obtain a condemnation of the Egyptian temple, and by the Jews of Egypt into tsedek , ‘righteousness’ (LXX Episcopacy - They were, in fact, for a considerable time, considered as one with the Original church: the bishop sent to them the elements of the Lord's Supper as the pledge of unity; and we find it asserted by ancient writers, that there was one altar and one bishop. The ministers who were sent to the recently erected churches had probably different powers, according to the numbers to whom they were to officiate, the situation of the churches in respect of the Original church, and the tranquillity or persecution which was their lot. Such subordinate bishops continued for a considerable time; but it might, from the beginning, have been foreseen that they would soon aspire to an equality with the Original bishops; and they were at length suppressed, under the pretence that, by multiplying the higher order in places of little consequence, the church would detract from the respectability of that order, and lessen the reverence with which it should be regarded
Confusion of Tongues - Some learned men, prepossessed with the notion that all the different idioms now in the world did at first arise from one Original language, to which they may be reduced, and that the variety among them is no more than must naturally have happened in a long course of time by the mere separation of the builders of Babel, have maintained, that there were no new languages formed at the confusion; but that this event was accomplished by creating a misunderstanding and variance among the builders, without any immediate influence on their language. Another opinion ascribes the confusion to such an indistinct remembrance of the Original language which they spoke before, as made them speak it very differently; so that by the various inflections, terminations, and pronunciations of divers dialects, they could no more understand one another, than they who understand Latin can understand those who speak French, Italian, or Spanish, though all these languages arise out of it. Wotton, &c, not satisfied with either of the foregoing methods of accounting for the diversity of languages among mankind, have recourse to an extraordinary interposition of divine power, by which new languages were framed and communicated to different families by a supernatural infusion or inspiration; which languages have been the roots and Originals from which the several dialects that are, or have been, or will be, spoken, as long as this earth shall last, have arisen, and to which they may with ease be reduced. If these conclusions are well founded, they warrant the inference, that, in the ancient Hebrew, there are still to be found the traces of the Original speech. Whether this ancient Hebrew more nearly resembled the Chaldean, the Syrian, or what is now termed the Hebrew, it is unnecessary here to inquire; these languages, it has never been denied, were Originally and radically the same, though, from subsequent modifications, they appear to have assumed somewhat different aspects
Manuscripts - It appears that the books of the Bible were written Originally on scrolls of papyrus, a material made from dried and flattened strips of papyrus reed (see WRITING). Papyrus did not last well, and the Original writings all perished long ago. But from the beginning people had made copies of the Original writings, and others continued to make copies down through the centuries. ...
Although the Original writings were written by ordinary people in ordinary human language, they were at the same time written under the special direction of the Spirit of God. There are so many good manuscripts in existence that people with the necessary skills are able to determine the Original wording fairly accurately. ...

Over an extended period from the sixth to the eleventh centuries AD, Hebrew scholars called Massoretes introduced a system of vowel signs, or ‘points’, to ensure that the meaning of the Original writing was not lost
Wisdom of Solomon - 1-9) in which the Hebrew parallelism is observed indicates that Greek is not the Original language in which the work was composed; for those Israelites who composed Original works in Greek naturally adopted Hellenic literary styles, the tragedian Ezekiel (Clem. That the Original language was Hebrew is made certain by the preservation in the Jewish Oral Tradition (Genesis Rabba, 96, and Jer. The Oral Tradition employs it for a different purpose; if its phrase - be the Original of εἰκόνα ποιήσας, the language must have already been affected by Greek. 4:18, ὄψονται καὶ ἐξουθενήσουσιν, ‘they shall see and despise,’ where the context requires ‘they shall see and pine away’; the Original -, which signifies both, can be restored with certainty from Psalms 112:10; in 13:10, ‘or a useless stone, the work of an ancient hand,’ ‘useless’ is the new-Hebrew sense of -, which should have been rendered ‘carved. In 19:9 (of the Israelites in the bed of the Red Sea), ὡς γὰρ ἵπποι ἐνεμήθησαν καὶ ὡς ἀμνοὶ διεσκίρτησαν, ‘they fed like horses and skipped like lambs,’ the author clearly did not intend ‘fed’; from Isaiah 63:13 as explained by Kimchi it would seem that the Original had øöå, ‘they ran’ (used of horses in Joel 2:4, Amos 6:12), misread -. ’...
In many cases, however, the phrase employed shows clear signs of mistranslation, but restoration of the Original is difficult; examples are 1:16b ‘thinking him a friend they melted,’ where the sense requires something like ‘they summoned him’; 7:4 ‘I was reared in swaddling-clothes and cares’; 4:19a ‘for he will break them voiceless prone’; 5:7 ‘we were filled (ἐνεπλήσθημεν) with the paths of lawlessness and destruction’; 12:24b ‘thinking gods the despicable even among the beasts of the enemies’; 18:3c ἥλιον δὲ ἀβλαβῆ φιλοτίμου ξενιτείας παρέσχες. ...
The notion that Greek is the Original language of the book is probably due to its containing paragraphs which, both in style and in content, bear little resemblance to the OT. In 18:16 the Almighty Word which slew the first-born of the Egyptians is said to have ‘touched heaven, while standing upon the earth,’ καὶ οὐρανοῦ μὲν ἥπτετο, βεβήκει δʼ ἐπὶ γῆς; the Original of the phrase seems to be found in 1 Chronicles 21:16, where the destroying angel ‘stands between heaven and earth’; yet the Greek of Wisdom may be influenced by the description of Strife in Il. The fragment preserved in the Oral Tradition indicates that the Original did not exhibit the phenomenon which characterizes the Greek-complete absence of proper names. ...
The relation of the Original work to the books of the OT is very much more difficult to determine
Samaritan Pentateuch - As there was no Masorah to fix the Samaritan text, it is likely each successive century added its own emendations, so that the Original Samaritan text was very different from our present one. It remains therefore uncertain whether...

(1) The Original Samaritan having become to the common people a dead tongue, it was translated into the current Samaritan, dialect, a mixture of Hebrew, Aramaic, and Syriac. It slavishly copies the Original, sometimes at the sacrifice of sense; but this close verbal adherence makes it a more valuable help for studying the Samaritan text
Hebrews - Ἑβραῖος) is a transcription of the Aramaic ‘ebrâyâ, the equivalent of the Original word עִבְרִי, the proper Gentile name of the people who were also described as ‘Israelites’ or ‘Children of Israel. These facts have led to the conjecture that the name ‘Hebrews’ was Originally given to the race of Abraham by their Canaanite neighbours, and that this name continued to be the designation of the race by outsiders all through their history, just as the Magyars are known as ‘Hungarians’ by other nations of Europe. ...
The derivation of the term does not render much help in discovering its Original significance. This theory, which has generally been accepted by the Rabbis, carries with it the implication that the name was Originally given by the Original inhabitants of Canaan to the Hebrew immigrants
Bible, Hermeneutics - 3) The primary aim of the interpreter is to discover the Original meaning of the author who wrote the passage under consideration. The meaning of a passage might depend upon knowing whether the Original audience was Jewish or Gentile. You must consult a lexicon or dictionary to find the meaning key words had when the Original writer used them. His words may have a different meaning today, and you must know what they meant when Originally used. The Bible is made to say many things the Original writers did not intend by interpreting particular statements without regard to their contexts. It is important to know what the Bible said to its Original readers, the people to whom it was Originally addressed
Clementine Literature - The Ebionitism with which the Original work had been strongly coloured was first softened, then removed. The Original is lost, but the work is preserved in a translation by Rufinus, of which many MSS. We can test his work in the case of fragments of the Original preserved by quotation, and, moreover, we have a Syriac trans. One of the books is described as treating of the Apostles' disputation at the temple; and therefore it seems needless to look for the Original of this part in the Ascents of James or elsewhere. It is not easy to say which form is the Original. Neither the Latin nor Syriac version of the Recognitions translates any preface; but Rufinus mentions having found in his Original a letter of Clement to James, which he does not prefix, because, as he says, it is of later date and he had translated it elsewhere. to be the Original for the first three books, H. Lipsius regards both as independent modifications of a common Original. Without speaking over-confidently, our own conclusion is, that while neither of the existing documents can claim to be the Original form, they are not independent; that H. Probably the Original form contained little but discourses, and was probably an esoteric document, in use only among the Ebionites; and the author of R. , a strong Ebionite, may have restored some of the Original discourses, retaining the little romance which no doubt had been found to add much to the popularity and attractiveness of the volume. is not an Original. is not Original in respect of the: Caesarean sections, but still more decisively refutes Lehmann's own hypothesis that it was H. who ornamented an Originally simpler story with the romance of the recognitions. , but only as a silent character; and it is urged that the Original form is more likely to be that in which this well-known adversary of Judaism conducts a disputation, than that in which he is but an insignificant companion of Simon. not Original

There are various classes of different readings, but few or none in which the Samaritan does not appear to be a corruption of the Original
Sozomen, Author of a History - It thus covers the same period as that of Socrates, and as both were written about the same time and have many resemblances, the question arises as to which was the Original and which not unfrequently the copyist. He also gives not a few important particulars concerning both the events and men of the time covered by it, particularly of the council of Nicaea, the persecutions, the general progress of the gospel, the conversion of Constantine, the history of Julian, the illustrious Athanasius, and many bishops and martyrs of the age; and also a number of Original documents
Matthew, Gospel According to - the Original Aramaic Mt. in India, but the story is very uncertain; Epiphanius says that the Aramaic Gospel of Matthew existed in his day, in the possession of an Ebionite sect (distinguished in modern times as Elkesaites), and describes it; and Jerome describes what he alleges to be the Original of Mt. ...
( b ) What does Papias mean about the Original language of Matthew? All the testimony as to its being Aramaic [3] probably reduces itself to this one sentence. is clearly an Original composition, derived from Greek sources, such as Mk. We have then to ask, Did Papias make a mistake about the Original language? We know that there was a ‘Gospel of the Hebrews’ current early in the 2nd cent. the Original of the Greek ‘non-Markan document’ (see art. Both these solutions seem to be quite possible; but it is not possible to suppose that our First Gospel was Originally written in Aramaic. The titles need not be, indeed almost certainly are not, those of the Original authors, but they must have been applied at a very early date. These considerations may lead us to prefer the second solution mentioned above, in § 1 ( b ) that Matthew the Apostle composed the Aramaic Original of the Greek ‘non-Markan document,’ the ‘Logia’ (not consisting of sayings only, but of sayings and narrative combined), and that in this way his name became attached to the First Gospel
Unwritten Sayings - ( John 7:53 to John 8:11 ) being regarded by critical scholars as additions to the Original texts, which may at the same time embody authentic traditions. Though interesting and sometimes striking, these have no claim to represent Original traditions, but are frequently traceable to Gospels canonical or apocryphal. Here again some of the ‘Sayings’ have Gospel parallels, while others bear a more Original character
Eve - All four passages in the Bible that contain the name "Eve" refer to the wife of the Original man, Adam (Genesis 3:20 ; 4:1 ; 2Col 11:3; 1 Timothy 2:13 ). Although that covenant subsequently includes her (3:2-3), she is not an Original party to it. " The Original Hebrew form of the name, hawwa [3], is apparently a derivative of, or a paronomasia on, the verb haya [4], which means "live
sa'Tan - The word itself, the Hebrew satan , is simply an "adversary," and is so used in ( 1 Samuel 29:4 ; 2 Samuel 19:22 ; 1 Kings 6:4 ; 11:14,23,25 ; Numbers 22:22,33 ; Psalm 109:6 ) This Original sense is still found in our Lord's application of the name to St. Of the nature and Original state of Satan, little is revealed in Scripture. We cannot, of course, conceive that anything essentially and Originally evil was created by God. "trial," is essential to man, and is accordingly ordained for him and sent to him by God, as in (Genesis 22:1 ) It is this tentability of man, even in his Original nature, which is represented in Scripture as giving scope to the evil action of Satan
Melchizedek - The Original meaning was probably ‘My king is Zedek’; but the name is interpreted ideally in Hebrews 7:2, where it is taken to mean ‘king of righteousness,’ and at the same time, because of Melchizedek’s rule over Salem (= ‘peace’), ‘king of peace. The Original source of the story is Genesis 14:17-20, of which the literary history is still uncertain. -The writer need not be conceived as going back through Psalms 110:4 to the Original tradition in Genesis 14 and working upon it independently; for there is sufficient reason to believe that the narrative had for a couple of centuries engaged the attention of some of the religious leaders of the people, and in the interpretation an interesting development may be traced
Ark of the Covenant - names the Original container for the Ten Commandments and the central symbol of God's presence with the people of Israel. The word “covenant” in the name defines the ark from its Original purpose as a container for the stone tablets upon which the Ten Commandments (sometimes called the “testimony”) were inscribed. After the sin of the golden calf and the breaking of the Original decalogue tablets, Moses made a plain box of acacia wood as a container to receive the new tables of the law
Sin - Original sin is that whereby our whole nature is corrupted, and rendered contrary to the nature and law of God; or, according to he ninth article of the church of England, "It is that whereby man is very far gone from Original righteousness, and is, of his own nature, inclined to evil. The imputation of the sin of Adam to his posterity, is also what divines call, with some latitude of expression, Original sin
Balaam - ]'>[2] connecting Balaam with Israel’s uncleanness has nothing to do with the Original narrative. This Original narrative is contained in Numbers 22:1-41 ; Numbers 23:1-30 ; Numbers 24:1-25 . Although the details of this analysis are not certain, we may take it that the Original story proceeds from J Blood - When animals were granted to Noah for food, the blood was reserved; and when the same law was reenacted among the Israelites, the Original prohibition is repeated, with an explanation which at once shows the Original ground upon which it rested: "I have given it upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls. That it is a mistake to suppose that the declaration of Moses to the Jews, that God had "given them the blood for an atonement," is an "additional reason" for the interdict, not to be found in the Original prohibition to Noah. Now, by turning to the Original prohibition in Genesis, we find that precisely the same reason is given: "But the flesh with the blood, which is the life thereof, shall ye not eat
Ten Commandments - But many critics think that Exodus 10:28 b Originally referred not to the ‘ten words’ of Exodus 20:1-26 , but to the laws of Exodus 34:11-26 , and that these laws were J New Testament - " (1 Corinthians 16:21 ; 2 Thessalonians 3:17 ; Colossians 4:18 ) The Original copies seem to have soon perished. History affords a trace of the pure apostolic Originals. Even at a very early period the Original text of a parchment MS. In lapse of time the Original writing frequently reappeared in faint lines below the later text, and in this way many precious fragments of biblical MSS. It is commonly referred to Euthalius, who, however, says that he borrowed the divisions of the Pauline Epistles from an earlier father and there is reason to believe that the division of the Acts and Catholic Epistles which he published was Originally the work of Pamphilus the martyr. The titles of the sacred books are from their nature additions to the Original text. In the twelfth century the Original writing was effaced and some Greek writings of Ephraem Syrus were written over it. ...
Various causes: readings are due to some arose from accidental, others from intentional alterations of the Original text. This great prelate as early as 1502 engaged the services of a number of scholars to superintend an edition of the whole Bible in the Original Hebrew and Greek, with the addition of the Chaldee Targum of Onkelos, the LXX

The Original English title of this book used the word Directory rather than Dictionary, partly to appeal to readers who may not want a book that sounds academic, and partly because the book does not, like a ‘proper’ dictionary, deal with all the words and names in the Bible
Witness - In the New Testament the Original notion of a witness is exhibited in the special form of one who attests his belief in the gospel by personal suffering
Eliakim - King JEHOIAKIM'S Original name

Association, Catholic - In the course of years the association's work has been modified as some of the former official bodies have ceased to function, and by the advent of fresh Catholic societies which specialize more directly on its Original main purpose
Eve - This is, of course, a man’s account of the origin of sin, and happily the Original story, with all the Rabbinical and other unworthy inferences that have been drawn from it, is no longer among the Christian credenda
Language - Admitting, however, that it is of divine Original, we cannot suppose that a perfect system of it was all at once given to man
Ishi - Our translators have thought proper to preserve the word in its Original, giving the meaning of it in the margin, my husband
Likeness - …”...
Third, demûth signifies the Original after which a thing is patterned: “To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?” ( Emilianus (8), Solitary - The only Original source of information about him is his Life by St
Cleopas - " In our translation of Luke 24:31 , it is said that Jesus "vanished out of their sight;" but the Original is more properly rendered, "He suddenly went away from," the word being often applied by the Greek writers to those who in any way, but especially suddenly and abruptly, withdraw from any one's company
Chronicles - Those ancient registers were much more extensive than these are; and the books of Chronicles themselves refer to those Original memoirs, and make long extracts from them
Gold - In Job 28:15-19 , gold is mentioned five times, and four of the words are different in the Original:...
Lamb - The young of the sheep, though the Original word means also the kid or young of the goat; and by the Jewish law it is expressly provided that the sacrifice at the passover might be a lamb, either of the sheep or goat

Sisters of Saint Clare - Saint Colette carried on a reform within the order, emphasizing its Original spirit of poverty; followers of her reform were known as Collettine sisters.

Sabeans - This word represents two distinct people, who, in accordance with the Original Hebrew, might have been more properly called Sebaeans and Shebaeans
Beth'el - (Genesis 35:1-8 ) The Original name was Luz
Made - (2) In Luke 3:5 , AV (3rd statement), the future tense of eimi, "to be," is translated "shall be made" (RV, "shall become"); in the next sentence there is nothing in the Original representing "shall be made
Poor Poverty - In Matthew 5:3 our Lord’s words are repeated in a different form-‘Blessed are the poor in spirit’; and while we may be inclined to think that Luke gives us the more Original form of the words, the gloss, if it be such, of Matthew’s Gospel is very possibly just in substance
Calvary - The first has been preserved without mutilation: being a piece of ground about ten yards square, in its Original position; and so high above the common floor of the church, that there are, according to Chateaubriand, twenty-one steps to ascend up to it. The truth is, that in the alterations which were made on Calvary, to bring all the principal places within the projected church, the earth around the sepulchre was dug away; so that, what was Originally a cave in the earth has now the appearance of a closet or grotto above ground. It was this sepulchre, so close at hand, and so appropriate, which he resigned for the use of our Lord; little thinking perhaps, at the time, how soon it would again be left vacant for its Original purpose by his glorious resurrection
Nineveh, Ninevites - One of two conclusions is inevitable; either that there was a current Haggadic tradition about Jonah and Nineveh which was known to our Lord and His hearers but has been lost to us, or that the word ‘Ninevites’ has supplanted some other word in the Original text of St. ’ It is conceivable that this was the more Original form of the words in St
Evil (2) - Before man existed, there were myriads of finite spirits, higher in the order of creation than he, and of these some fell from their Original innocence and became devils. ...
(2) Original sin. —There is no recorded teaching of Jesus about Original sin. It may, perhaps, be argued from John 9:1-3, that He would not have approved of any theory of Original sin which regarded men as obnoxious to punishment from God merely because of an ancestral taint that they could not help inheriting. 3, 4: Tennant, The Origin and Propagation of Sin; and The Fall and Original Sin; Bull, The State of Man before the Fall; Paley, Natural Theology, xxvi
Bible, Methods of Study - It helps to reconstruct the Original situation of the text, to understand the needs and expectations of the people involved, to see the manifold aspects of reality touched, and to avoid wrong applications if important aspects have changed today. It is helpful to compare different translations; occasionally they may even reflect variant readings of the Original. a reformulation in our own words, usually somewhat longer than the Original. What is the contribution of the text, first in the Original situation, then also in the history of the early church, the entire history of salvation? Contribution comprises both effect and message, activity and doctrine
Pillar - Such, in the present form of the story for the probable Original form, see § 4 below was the stone which Jacob set up and anointed at Bethel ( Genesis 28:18 ; Genesis 28:22 ; cf. Originally ten in number, eight of them are still standing in situ . ’ The smaller dimensions are those of the second stone of the series, which is supposed to have been the Original beth-el (see next §) of the high place. In Genesis 28:1-22 it is admitted that we have a later adaptation of a Canaanite temple myth, which explained the origin of the sanctuary at Bethel, and especially the sanctity attaching to the Original beth-el , i. In the Original form of the story the anointing of the stone was an offering to the indwelling numen . The cavities in the other recently discovered mazzçbâhs , above mentioned, were no doubt Originally intended to receive similar offerings of blood, wioe, or oil (cf
Medes - The phrases "the Medes and Persians" and "Media and Persia," even after the Persians got the supremacy (Esther 10:2), show the Original supremacy of Media, which still in legal and religious formalities was retained. Herodotus (1:131) makes their Original religion the worship of the elements, tire, etc. Rawlinson however makes dualism (the worship of both a good and an evil principle eternally existing: Ormuzd the good object of trust, Ahriman the object of fear) to have been their Original faith as described in the Zendavesta, and that the worship of the elements was subsequently taken from the Scythians (the fire worshippers of Armenia and Mount Zagros, among whom Magism existed from of old) and was Magian
Nations - ]'>[2] has ‘Greek,’ following the Original. ]'>[1] ‘Gentiles’ often corresponds to ‘Greeks’ in the Original, as in John 7:35 , Romans 3:9 etc. and Greek) translated ‘nation’ have their Original and literal sense in many parts of the OT and NT, as in Ezekiel 46:1-2458 ; Genesis 10:10 etc
Galatia - This is the second sense in which the term Galatia is used in ancient documents, namely, the sphere of duty which included the ethnic districts, Papblagonia, Pontus Galaticus, Galatia (in the Original narrower sense), Phrygia Galatica, and Lycaonia Galatica (with ‘the Added Land,’ part of the Original Lycaonian tetrarchy). There is an alternative ‘Gallia,’ which, even if it be not the Original, suggests that the word ‘Galatia’ there should be taken in the sense of ‘Gallia’ (that is, France)
Image of God - Significantly, this passage links God's Original creation of humans in his likeness with the subsequent human procreation of children in Adam's image and likeness. ...
Sadly, the pristine beauty and harmony of this Original created order were shattered by the rebellion of Adam and Eve, and the record in Genesis 3 as well as the history of human cultures show how alienation between humans and God, humans and other humans, and humans and nature quickly became the normal state of affairs. The Original created order encompassed not only a "spiritual" relationship to God but also a social relationship to other humans and a material relationship to the world
Baruch, Apocalypse of - 70, and now preserved only in Syriac, This Syriac is a translation from the Greek, of which only a tiny fragment is extant; the Greek itself seems to have been a translation from an Aramaic or Hebrew Original. Charles as the survival of Original Hebrew idioms, persisting through the lost Greek intermediary. ’ This sentence sufficiently shows how difficult it would be to reconstruct the Greek from the Syriac of Baruch, and how impossible to argue back to the wording of a hypothetical Hebrew or Aramaic Original. As Charles has founded an argument on these for a Hebrew Original, it is necessary to point out that the evidence is really indecisive. And, further, it is almost certain that they must have been Originally composed in the same language, either both in Greek, or both in Hebrew or Aramaic. עלאה); but as it was also a name of God in Greek its occurrence proves nothing as to the Original language of our book. excedens excessit, 4:2) cannot thus be disposed of, and at present no real example of this idiom is known in works composed Originally in Greek, though it is common in translations such as the Septuagint . But, as explained above, we are very far from being able to reconstruct the text of this hypothetical Hebrew or Aramaic Original (lxiv. ...
Not only the language, but also the contents, of Baruch favour a Hebrew or Aramaic Original. Baruch is known to us only from a single manuscript of a not very literal translation into Syriac of a Greek translation of a Hebrew or Aramaic Original

2: κανών (Strong's #2583 — Noun Masculine — kanon — kan-ohn' ) Originally denoted "a straight rod," used as a ruler or measuring instrument, or, in rare instances, "the beam of a balance," the secondary notion being either (a) of keeping anything straight, as of a rod used in weaving, or (b) of testing straightness, as a carpenter's rule; hence its metaphorical use to express what serves "to measure or determine" anything

Confusion of Tongues - ...
Some, again, ascribe the confusion to such an indistinct remembrance of the Original language which they spoke before, as made them speak it very differently: but the most common, opinion is, that God caused the builders actually to forget their former language, and each family to speak a new tongue; whence originated the various languages at present in the world

o'Phir - (Hence we conclude that Ophir was in southern Arabia, upon the border of the Indian Ocean; for even if all the things brought over in Solomon's ships are not now found in Arabia, but are found in India, yet, there is evidence that they once were known in Arabia and, moreover, Ophir may not have been the Original place of production of some of them, but the great market for traffic in them

Sep'Tuagint - The poetical parts are, generally speaking, inferior to the historical, the Original abounding with rarer words and expressions. Supposing the numerous glosses and duplicate renderings, which have evidently crept from the margin into the text, to be removed and forming a rough estimate of what the Septuagint was in its earliest state, we may perhaps say of it that it is the image of the Original seen through a glass not adjusted to the proper focus; the larger features are shown, but the sharpness of definition is lost
Blessedness - The Original experience of Adam and Eve in Eden is a blessedness derived from a creation in which God provides for their spiritual well-being with his companionship and their physical needs with the garden's trees (Genesis 2 ). The lost blessedness of the Original paradise is fully restored by the cross and is now associated with the redemption (Luke 23:43 )
Pharisees - This sect was one of the most ancient and most considerable among the Jews, but its Original is not very well known; however, it was in great repute in the time of our Saviour, and most probably had its Original at the same time with the traditions
Jephthah - In the story before us we obviously must not expect to see the Original form; it is a compilation from more than one source, and has been worked over in the interests of later religious conceptions; that two totally distinct practices have, therefore, got mixed up together need cause no surprise. In their Original form (in which human sacrifice played a part) these rites were intended, and believed, to be the means of assisting Nature to bring forth the fruits of the earth

Sabbath - The Sabbath was appointed at the creation of the world, and sanctified, or set apart for holy purposes, "for man," for all men, and therefore for Christians; since there was never any repeal of the Original institution. The passage from our Lord's sermon on the mount, with its context, is a sufficiently explicit enforcement of the moral law, generally, upon his followers; but when he says, "The Sabbath was made for man," he clearly refers to its Original institution, as a universal law, and not to its obligation upon the Jews only, in consequence of the enactments of the law of Moses. ...
Thus, even if it were conceded, that the change of the day was made by the agreement of the Apostles, without express directions from Christ, which is not probable, it is certain that it was not done without that general authority which was confided to them by Christ; but it would not follow even from this change, that they did in reality make any alteration in the law of the Sabbath, either as it stood at the time of its Original institution at the close of the creation, or in the decalogue of Moses. The same portion of time which constituted the seventh day from the creation could not be observed in all parts of the earth; and it is not probable, therefore, that the Original law expresses more, than that a seventh day, or one day in seven, the seventh day after six days of labour, should be thus appropriated, from whatever point the enumeration might set out, or the hebdomadal cycle begin. So that those persons in this country and in America, who hold their sabbath on Saturday, under the notion of exactly conforming to the Old Testament, and yet calculate the days from midnight to midnight, have no assurance at all that they do not desecrate a part of the Original Sabbath, which might begin, as the Jewish Sabbath now, on Friday evening, and, on the contrary, hallow a portion of a common day, by extending the Sabbath beyond Saturday evening. Holden, that in the Original institution it is stated in general terms, that God blessed and sanctified the seventh day, which must undoubtedly imply the sanctity of every seventh day; but not that it is to be subsequently reckoned from the first demiurgic day. ...
Traces of the Original appointment of the Sabbath; and of its observance prior to the giving forth of the law of Moses, have been found by the learned in the tradition which universally prevailed of the sacredness of the number seven, and the fixing of the first period of time to the revolution of seven days. But the truth is, that the seventh day was set apart from the beginning as a day of rest; and it was also strictly enjoined upon the Israelites in their law, both on the ground of its Original institution, Exodus 20:8-11 , and also to commemorate their deliverance from the bondage of Egypt, Deuteronomy 5:15

Order of Friars Minor Capuchins - Aiming at a more perfect return to the primitive observance of the Rule of Saint Francis, in resistance to the secularizing tendency which accepted certain relaxations, Father Matteo sought and obtained from Pope Clement VII permission for strict adherence to the traditional rule of poverty, wearing the Original Franciscan habit, and preaching the Word of God
Copper - The Original excavator thought these were built by Solomon for processing both copper and iron, but subsequent research has shown them to be earlier than Solomon
Tithes - Although tithes were, of course, intended to be offered once a year ( Deuteronomy 14:22 ), it would appear from Amos 4:4 though the words are ironical that in their anxiety to more than fulfil the requirements of the Law, many worshippers brought them more frequently (the Original Hebrew, however, is ambiguous)
Sim'Eon - On the other hand the definite statement of ( 1 Chronicles 4:41-43 ) proves that at that time there were still some of them remaining in the Original seat of the tribe, and actuated by all the warlike, lawless spirit of their progenitor
Capuchin Friars Minor - Aiming at a more perfect return to the primitive observance of the Rule of Saint Francis, in resistance to the secularizing tendency which accepted certain relaxations, Father Matteo sought and obtained from Pope Clement VII permission for strict adherence to the traditional rule of poverty, wearing the Original Franciscan habit, and preaching the Word of God

Stoics - Their distinguishing tenets were, that God is underived, incorruptible, and eternal; possessed of infinite wisdom and goodness: the efficient cause of all the qualities and forms of things; and the constant preserver and governor of the world: That matter, in its Original elements, is also underived and eternal; and is by the powerful energy of the Deity impressed with motion and form: That though God and matter subsisted from eternity, the present regular frame of nature had a beginning originating in the gross and dark chaos, and will terminate in a universal conflagration, that will reduce the world to its pristine state: That at this period all material forms will be lost in one chaotic mass; and all animated nature be reunited to the Deity: That from this chaotic state, however, the world will again emerge by the energy of the efficient principle; and gods, and men, and all forms of regulated nature be renewed and dissolved, in endless succession: And that after the revolution of the great year all things will be restored, and the race of men will return to life
Litany - " When the miraculous gift of the Spirit began to cease, they wrote down several of these forms, which were the Original of our present litanies
Surety - The substance of their remarks is, that the Original term employed by the Apostle, and which occurs no where else in Scripture, is εγγυος , which is derived from εγγυς , near, and signifies one who draws near, or who brings others near; which sense of the word will not very well accord with that of a substitute or representative The Greek commentators very properly explain, the word by μεσιτης , a mediator

C — 1: καταργέω (Strong's #2673 — Verb — katargeo — kat-arg-eh'-o ) is used in 1 Corinthians 1:28 , "(that) He might bring to nought;" 1 Corinthians 2:6 (Passive Voice in the Original); 1 Corinthians 6:13 ; RV, "will bring to nought" (AV "will destroy"); so 2 Thessalonians 2:8 ; Hebrews 2:14
Order - ...
Note: In 2 Corinthians 11:32 , RV, the phrase "in order to" (as with the AV, "desirous to") represents nothing in the Original: the infinitive mood of the verb piazo expresses the purpose, viz

Epistle - The epistles and James, by Peter and Jude, are very different in their style and application from those of Paul written to the Gentiles; and those of Paul written to the Gentiles; and those of Paul no doubt contain expressions and allude to facts much more familiar to their Original readers than to later ages
Babel - Their object in building the city and tower, was to concentrate the population and the dominion at that spot; and as this was contrary to the divine purpose of replenishing the earth with inhabitants, and betrayed an ungodly and perhaps idolatrous disposition, God frustrated their designs by miraculously giving to different portions of the people different languages, or different modes of pronunciation and divergent dialects of the Original language of man, thus causing them to disperse over the globe
Lot - (Genesis 13:1 ) and then to their Original settlement between Bethel and Ai
Hell - It is unfortunate that many of the older versions of the English Bible use the one word ‘hell’ to translate several words in the Original languages
Lucanus (1) - The Lucianites are reckoned as a sect distinct from the Marcionites, as well by Origen as by Hippolytus and his followers; but lack of authentic report of any important difference in doctrine leads us to believe that Lucanus did not separate from Marcion, but that after the latter's death Lucanus was a Marcionite teacher (probably at Rome), whose celebrity caused his followers to be known by his name rather than by that of the Original founder of the sect
Majorianus, Julius Valerius - An outline of these laws is given by Gibbon; the seventh enacted that a curialis who had taken orders to avoid the duties of his position, if below the rank of a deacon, should be at once reduced to his Original status, while, if he had been ordained deacon, priest, or bishop, he was declared incapable of alienating his property
Melania the Younger, Daughter of Publicola - Their intercourse with Augustine continued, and in answer to their questions on the Pelagian controversy he wrote his treatise On Grace and Original Sin , a
Theonas, Bishop of Alexandria - It is obviously a translation from a Greek Original, which no one will now hesitate to ascribe to Theonas of Alexandria
Hosea, Book of - In several other cases ( Hosea 5:10 ; Hosea 5:12-14 , Hosea 6:4 , Hosea 12:2 ) it is possible that the editor has pointed the Original prophecies at his own people of the South by substituting ‘Judah’ where Hosea had written ‘Israel’; thus, although at present Jacob-Judah are mentioned in Hosea 12:2 , the terms ‘Jacob’ and ‘Israel,’ synonyms for the people of the Northern Kingdom, were certainly in the mind of the writer of Hosea 12:2-3 , for in Hosea 12:3 he puns on these names: ‘In the womb he Jacobed his brother, and in his manhood Israeled with God. ...
Apart from the intentional modifications of the Original words of Hosea by later editors, the text has suffered very seriously from accidents of transmission
Ammi - (See Hosea 2:1) There is a great sweetness in these words, and the translators of our Bible, having retained them in their Original language, as they have done, while at the same time giving the English of them in the margin, (as the reader will perceive if he consults his Bible) seem to show their view of the importance of the words themselves, and their wishes that the English reader should, in some measure, be acquainted with them, so as to have some apprehension of their importance. I will say to [1] them which were [2] not my people, Thou my people, and they shall say, Thou my God; that is, I will put them in mind of the whole cause of my mercy towards them; namely, my covenant relation with them in Christ
Gospel - It has been much disputed whether this gospel was Originally written in Hebrew or Greek. The unanimous testimony of ancient writers is in favor of a Hebrew Original, that is, that it was written in the language of Palestine and for the use of the Hebrew Christians. But, on the other hand, the definiteness and accuracy of this testimony is drawn into question; there is no historical notice of a translation into Greek; and the present Greek gospel bears many marks of being an Original; the circumstances of the age, too, and the prevalence of the Greek language in Palestine, seem to give weight to the opposite hypothesis
Assyr'ia, as'Shur, - ...
Original peopling. --The Mesopotamian researches have rendered it apparent that the Original seat of government was not at Nineveh, but at Kileh-Sherghat, on the right bank of the Tigris. -- The civilization of the Assyrians was derived Originally from the Babylonians.

Unless people are reading the Bible in the Original languages (Hebrew in the Old Testament, Greek in the New), whatever they are reading is a translation (see MANUSCRIPTS; SCRIPTURES). The words and expressions that the Original writers used have to be understood in the context of their ancient cultures
Text of the Gospels - ]'>[1] to Westcott and Hort’s The New Testament in the Original Greek) the ‘Syrian’ Text. For reasons that will be explained later on in this article, Hort considers that the Antiochian text affords practically no evidence for the reconstruction of the Original Greek of the NT, and he may therefore be considered as the most extreme opponent of the Textus Receptus . But it is a different thing to go on to say: ‘therefore this text must be the Original authentic text. We have pointed out above that a large, and the most enlightened, portion of the Christian Church read the Scriptures in the Vulgate, or Latin translation of Jerome, and regarded it as the only authoritative exponent of the true text and sense of the Original. Thus the argument goes in a circle, unless either it can be proved that the two separate readings existed at a time when it can be shown that the conflate reading did not, or the conflate reading is so obviously wrong that it cannot conceivably be the Original reading. of his ‘Causes of Corruption,’ and makes out a fairly good case for the Originality of the supposed conflate readings. ...
Moreover, we often feel great doubt whether the quotation stands in our printed editions in its Original form. ...
The case of Fathers writing in a language other than Greek presents further difficulties, because it is often impossible to say how far the form of the quotation is due to a knowledge of the Original Greek, and how far to familiarity with the version in their own language. ...
It is an obvious truth that, if the Original of a document exists, no number of copies will possess any value for settling its text, which can be ascertained by reference to the document itself. If three independent copies have been made of a document which has itself perished, it may fairly be assumed that where all three agree they correctly represent the Original; and further, in cases where two of the copies agree against the third, we shall confidently judge that these two preserve the right text, and that the third is in error. Now suppose that fifty copies have been made of this third Original copy, and that it has itself perished, then it is clear that the evidence of the two extant primary copies outweighs the evidence of the fifty secondary ones
Tongues, Confusion of - )...
This is a trace of the Original unity of races so distinct, subsequently, as the Hamitic Canaanites and the Semitic Hebrew. Whatever differences of tongue arose before the flood, the Original unity of speech was restored in Noah. Amidst the varieties, traces of unity appear in the Original material, in the stages of formation, and in the general grammatical expression. ...

Abel - In the Original story (Genesis 4:1-7) his offering was probably regarded as mere pleasing on account of the material of his Sacrifice
Asher - Whether this fact operated in its naming, or whether the name was Originally that of a divinity of a militant Canaanite clan mentioned frequently in the Tell el-Amarna letters as the Mârî abd-Ashirti (‘Sons of the servant of Asherah’), or whether the Canaanite tribe ‘Asaru , known from the inscriptions of the Egyptian king Seti I. The two last theories imply an amalgamation of Original inhabitants with a Hebrew clan or tribe, which, probably prior to the entrance of the southern tribes, had found its way into the North

Levi - ]'>[2] ’s enlargement of the Original. It portrays early relations between the Israelites and the Original inhabitants
Minister - minister = ‘ servant ,’ and generally it may be said that wherever it is found in the Bible, whether in OT or in NT, its Original meaning is its primary one, service being the idea it is specially meant to convey. The man who serves and follows Christ is His minister ( John 12:26 ; ‘my diakonos ’ is the expression in the Original); and the minister of Christ will not fail to minister also to the brethren ( 1 Corinthians 12:5 , 1 Peter 4:10 )

But ethnologists from the art-formed flints in the gravel and drift formations on the earth's surface infer three successive ages, the flint, the bronze, the iron; also from the lower type of older skulls they infer that civilization was a slow growth from Original barbarism. All that Scripture states is man's Original innocence, and that his state was not savagery but rudimentary civilization
Pelagians - He, with his friend Celestius, travelled to Rome, where they resided very early in the fifth century, and opposed with warmth certain received notions respecting Original sin, and the necessity of divine grace. Whatever parts were visited by these unorthodox friends, they still asserted their peculiar opinions; and they were gradually engaged in a warm contest, in the course of which they were probably led to advance more than had Originally occurred to them. The Pelagian controversy, which began with the doctrines of grace and Original sin, was extended to predestination, and excited continual discord and division in the church. " That many who have held some tenets in common with the true Arminians have been, in different degrees, followers of Pelagius is well known; but the Original Arminians were in truth as far from Pelagian or Semi-Pelagian errors, granting the opinions of Pelagius to be fairly reported by his adversaries, as the Calvinists themselves

Tadmor or Tamar - The Original name was preserved till the time of Alexander, who extended his conquests to this city, which then exchanged its name Tadmor for that of Palmyra, both signifying that it was a "city of palms.

Ban - The Original idea, common to all the Semitic languages, is that of withdrawing something from common use and setting it apart for the exclusive use of a deity. The Original motive of the ban is probably reflected in Numbers 21:2 f
Text of the New Testament - The materials available for ascertaining the true text of the NT (and, in their measure, of all other ancient works of literature) fall into three classes: (1) Manuscripts, or copies of the NT in the Original Greek; (2) Versions, or ancient translations of it into other languages, which were themselves, of course, Originally derived from very early Greek MSS, now lost; (3) Quotations in ancient writers, which show what readings these writers found in the copies accessible to them. It is practically certain that the Originals of the NT books were written on rolls of papyrus , that being the material in universal use for literary purposes in the Greek- and Latin-speaking world. Codex Sinaiticus , Originally a complete codex of the Greek Bible. Tischendorf attributes the Original text of the MS to four scribes, one of whom he believes (though, in the opinion of many, this is very questionable) to have been also the scribe of the Codex Vaticanus (B); and the corrections to six different hands, of whom the most important are א a (about contemporary with the Original scribe), and א ca and א cb (of the 7th cent. It contains the whole Greek Bible, with the exception of 40 lost leaves (containing Matthew 1:1 to Matthew 25:6 , John 6:50 to John 8:52 , James 1:1-2770 to 2 Corinthians 12:6 ); it also Originally contained the two Epistles of Clement and the Psalms of Solomon, but the Psalms and the conclusion of the Second Epistle have disappeared, together with one leaf from the First Epistle. The text of the NT is written by three scribes, with two columns to the page: there are many corrections by the Original scribes and by an almost contemporary reviser (A a ). It Originally contained the whole Bible (except the Books of Maccabees), possibly with additional books, like א and A ; but it has lost from Hebrews 9:14 to the end of the NT, including the Pastoral Epistles (but not the Catholic Epistles, which follow the Acts and hence have escaped) and Apocalypse. a manuscript of which the Original writing has been partially washed or scraped off the vellum in order to use it again to receive other writing. In this case the Original writing was the text of the Greek Bible, written in the 5th cent. Only 64 leaves of the OT now survive, and 145 of the NT (out of 238); and often it is impossible to decipher the Original writing. Originally at Mt. Rather less than half the Original MS is now extant, including portions of all Gospels. The MS forms part of a group with three other purple MSS, Σ , Σ b , and Φ , all probably having been Originally produced at Constantinople, and descended from a single not remote ancestor. Its text is closely akin to that of N, both being probably copies of the same Original. It is only the earlier versions that can be of service in recovering the Original text of the NT; modern translations are of importance for the history of the Bible in the countries to which they belong, but contribute nothing to textual criticism
Odes of Solomon - We shall try to analyze the principal theories, and examine which of them seems to be most in accordance with the Original text and with the general course of ecclesiastical history. Grimme edited the Syriac text at Heidelberg, and translated it into Hebrew, with the intention of showing that the Syriac version was dependent on a Hebrew Original. ...
As to the modern versions made upon these texts, besides the works that we have mentioned concomitantly with the editions of the Original, the following publications appear to be the most important. So far as the text is concerned, few amendments worth noticing have been suggested, and the very few linguistic difficulties that the Original offers will remain for a long time insoluble, owing to the scarcity of Manuscripts and the lack of exact Patristic quotations. He had to conform his thoughts and his phraseology, and sometimes to assimilate even his personality, to that of the Jewish Odist; both writers must have been deeply influenced by the same Johannine atmosphere; and the Christian interpolator must have lived in a milieu not far removed from that of the Original Jewish writer. The Original language of the Odes. -The question of the Original language of the Odes is very important, because it may furnish a good starting-point for the solution of many problems dealing with the country, the age, and the aim of the whole collection. The majority (but we ought to say at once that some of them are not good Semitic scholars) hold to a Greek Original. The present writer has ventured to suggest that Aramaic may have been the language in which they were Originally written. The Aramaeans were far more influenced by this current than any other Semitic people, and distinct traces of Hellenism are frequent in books Originally written in Aramaic, or directly translated from the Hebrew. The only conclusion that we can safely draw from the arguments of some critics for a Greek Original of the Odes, is that their problematic author was a man of good Hellenic culture; and, as a matter of fact, in Syria and in Palestine, from the 1st to the 8th cent. ...
We may open our discussion with an examination of Grimme’s theory of a Hebrew Original
New Testament - The Old Testament Vulgate (the translation which is authorized by Rome) is in the central column, between the Greek Septuagint and the Hebrew (the Original); and the editors compare the first to Christ crucified between the impenitent (the Hebrew) and the penitent (the Greek) thief!...
Though there is no Greek authority for 1 John 5:7, they supplied it and told Erasmus that the Latin Vulgate's authority outweighs the Original Greek! They did not know that the oldest copies of Jerome's Vulgate omit it; the manuscript of Wizanburg of the eighth century being the oldest that contains it. The providence of God at the dawn of the Reformation thus furnished earnest students with Holy Scripture in the Original language sanctioned by the Holy Spirit. ...
To the outcry against hint for omitting the testimony of the three heavenly witnesses he replied, it is not omission but non-addition; even some Latin copies do not have it, and Cyril of Alexandria showed in his Thesaurus he did not know it; on the Codex Montfortianus (originally in possession of a Franciscan, Froy, who possibly wrote it, now in Trinity College, Dublin) being produced with it, Erasmus INSERTED it. Frequent handling and transmission soon destroyed the Originals. Criticism does not make variations, but finds them, and turns them into means of ascertaining approximately the Original text. The Latin version before Jerome's having become variously altered in different copies caused the need for his translation from the Original Greek of manuscripts current at Rome (and in a few passages probably from Origen's Greek manuscripts in the Caesarean library), at Damasus' suggestion. ...
Alexandria was in the early ages the center for publishing Greek manuscripts; hence, our oldest manuscripts were copied there, though the Originals were written elsewhere. Also, the Original does not have epistles to Timothy, Titus, Philemon. It was Originally written in the middle of the fourth century in Egypt; its text agrees with Alexandrian authorities. Mutilated and interpolated; the interpolations are easily distinguished from the Original. It has peculiarities that were probably not in the sacred Originals. It adheres to the Original Greek tenses, cases, etc. The copies, though varying, have a mutual resemblance, indicating there was Originally one received Latin version. pure Syriac, version, called so from its chose adherence to the Original Greek; second century
Koran - In reality, the necessity of forgiving enemies, though frequently inculcated in the Alcoran, is of a later date among the Mahometans, than among the Christians; among those later than among the heathens; and to be traced Originally among the Jews, (...
See Exodus 33:4-5 . ...
The Alcoran, while Mahomet lived, was only kept in loose sheets: his successor, Abubeker, first collected them into a volume, and committed the keeping of it to Haphsa, the widow of Mahomet, in order to be consulted as an Original; and there being a good deal of diversity between the several copies already dispersed throughout the provinces, Ottoman, successor of Abubeker, procured a great number of copies to be taken from that of Haphsa, at the same time suppressing all the others not conformable to the Original. It is the general belief among the Mahometans that the Koran is of divine Original; nay, that it is eternal and uncreated; remaining, as some express it, in the very essence of God: and the first transcript has been from everlasting, by God's throne, written on a table of vast bigness, called the preserved table, in which are also recorded the divine decrees, past and future; that a copy from this table, in one volume upon paper, was by the ministry of the angel Gabriel sent down to the lowest heaven, in the month of Ramadan, on the night of power, from whence Gabriel revealed it to Mahomet in parcels, some at Mecca, and some at Medina, at different times, during the space of twenty-three years, as the exigency of affairs required; giving him, however, the consolation to show him the whole (which they tell us was bound in silk, and adorned with gold and precious stones of paradise) once a year; but in the last year of his life he had the favour to see it twice. The Mahometans have taken care to have their Scripture translated into the Persian, the Javan, the Malayan, and other languages; though, out of respect to the Original, these versions are generally, if not always, interlineated. The modern nations of Europe all possess some Original author, who, rising from the darkness of former ages, has begun the career of composition, and tinctured with the character of his own imagination the stream which has flowed through his posterity. They were not confined, therefore, to that admiration which is so liberally bestowed on the earliest productions of genius, or to that fond attachment with which men every where regard the Original compositions of their country; but with their admiration they blended their piety. In succeeding ages, the additional sanction of antiquity or prescription, was given to those compositions which their fathers had admired; and while the belief of its divine Original continues, that admiration which has thus become the test and the duty of the faithful, can neither be altered nor diminished. In this instance, particularly, the copy is far below the great Original, both in the propriety of its images and the force of its descriptions. ' The Koran, therefore, upon a fair examination, far from supporting its arrogant claim to a supernatural work, sinks below the level of many compositions confessedly of human Original; and still lower does it fall in our estimation, when compared with that pure and perfect pattern which we justly admire in the Scriptures of truth
Assumption of Moses - -The Latin text presents a difficult task to the critical reconstructor of the Original Hebrew text. In the next place, it is not the Original Latin translation but a copy, in which the Latin itself has been corrected and corrupted. The version, however, is very literal, and, in spite of corruptions and carelessness, its Greek source is occasionally evident; and the Original Hebrew idiom is frequently preserved, Greek words like clibsis (= θλῖψις, 3:7) and heremus (= ἐρῆμος, 3:11), and even a reading like finem in 2:7, which presupposes ὅρον in Greek [2], suffice, to prove translation from the Greek; while corrupt passages like 4:9; 5:5; 10:4; 11:12 (see Charles’ text) require re-translation into the Original Hebrew in order to explain the corruption. An Aramaic Original postulated by Schmidt, Merx, and others is not necessitated by the order in 1:10; 3:2 (see Charles, 1897, pp. The Original ‘Assumption of Moses. 257-258), we find references to a natural death or Moses, which may be derived from the Original ending of the ‘Testament
Number - It is a matter of opinion how far the numerous ‘sevens,’ ‘tens,’ and ‘twelves’ were Originally intended as exact numbers. Probably, however, in many cases what were Originally round numbers were taken afterwards to be exact. Without attempting an exhaustive consideration of the accuracy of numbers as given by the Original authors, we may point out that we should not expect a large measure of mathematical accuracy even in Original numbers. ...
But apart from any question as to the accuracy of the Original figures, the transmission of the text by repeated copying for hundreds and thousands of years introduces a large element of uncertainty. , in which our books have been preserved, shows that numbers are specially subject to alteration, and that in very many cases we are quite uncertain as to what numbers were given in the Original text, notably where the numbers are large. There are ten sephiroth or primary emanations from God, one Original sephira , and three derivative triads; there are twelve channels of Divine grace; 613 commandments, etc. Thus in Genesis 14:14 Abraham has 318 ‘trained servants,’ 318 is the sum of the consonants of the name of Abraham’s steward Eliezer in its Original Hebrew form
Division of the Earth - ...
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 . 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 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 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. ) Canaan has been noticed already; and the Original extent of the land of Canaan is carefully marked by Moses. 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 . 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
Minucius Felix, Marcus - He shews that it is false that the Romans owed their prosperity to their religion, since it was by a multitude of irreligious acts that their empire grew, and because their Original native gods, to whom, if to any, must be ascribed the origin of their greatness, had been deposed from their position by the adoption of gods of the conquered peoples. It is more loosely constructed, and evidently more hastily written, than that of Minucius, but bears a strong stamp of Originality. Tertullian, it has been said, is one of the most Original of writers, Minucius quite the reverse. If Tertullian were the Original, Minucius would have a change of arrangement forced on him by the plan of his work, while the changes in form of expression either improve the Latinity or make the sentence more pointed; whereas if Minucius were the Original, Tertullian's changes can hardly have any other object than to disguise his obligation. ) to consider Minucius the Original, and Ebert's ability in arguing the case obtained for a time general acceptance of his opinion
Hymn - also the so-called Psalter of Solomon, which may have been intended ‘for public or oven liturgical use,’ and which almost certainly goes lack to a Hebrew Original See ed. They are ascribed to the Virgin Mary, Simeon, Zacharias, and the Angels respectively; but it is more probable that they are to be regarded as Original liturgical compositions, refleeting the piety and devotion of the early Jewish-Christian community in Palestine. Probably, too, they are translations from Hebrew Originals, and were at first sung or chanted in Hebrew. ‡ [13] Here also Professor Briggs deteets a trimeter poem Originally arranged in three parts. It is noteworthy that the Original form without these additions occurs only in the Fourth Gospel. also the so-called Psalter of Solomon, which may have been intended ‘for public or oven liturgical use,’ and which almost certainly goes lack to a Hebrew Original See ed
Septuagint - Patristic writers for the most part accepted it not merely as the best version of the Hebrew OT, but as no less inspired than the Original. ’ ‘It was argued that the errors of the Greek text were due to accidents of transmission, or that they were not actual errors, but Divine adaptations of the Original to the use of the future Church’ (Swete, Pt. Dispersion), yet one and all had lost the knowledge of the classical Hebrew of the Scriptures, with the exception of the learned—the priests and Rabbis—of whom the Original language of the OT was almost the exclusive property
Interpretation - A part of the early community ordinarily spoke Aramaic (Acts 6:1), but Greek writers naturally followed the Septuagint rendering, even when the Original tradition was in Aramaic or Hebrew. Its free handling of the text, its disregard for the Original setting, its logical vagaries, its slight tendency to become artificial, were all Jewish traits. , where an Original statement about the historic earthly career of Abraham is made the basis for an inference about his future heavenly career
Version, the Revised English - "...
The mere style of the English is of little consequence in comparison to giving the sense of the Original without any room for uncertainty
Goshen - ...
The Original meaning of the term is still debated
Hussites - The followers of Hus, venerating him as a holy martyr of the old religion rather than as a founder of a new one, objected to the appellation "Hussites," which implied separation from the Universal Church, for they believed their creed to be truly Catholic; but during the Hussite Wars the name became commonly applied both to the Original followers of Hus and to the subsequent smaller sects into which they divided
Hiram - (Huram in Chronicles usually, except 1 Chronicles 14:1, in the ketibh , the Original Hebrew text)
Hebron - A city in the hill country of Judah, Originally Kirjath (the city of) Arba (Joshua 15:13; Joshua 14:15).

Apostles - And as for Paul, his Apostolic title was bitterly contested; and he triumphantly defended it on the double ground that, though he had not companied with Jesus in the days of His flesh, he had seen Him after His glorification on the road to Damascus ( 1 Corinthians 9:1 ), and though he was not one of the Original Apostles, his Apostleship had the Lord’s own sanction ( 1 Corinthians 9:2 , 2 Corinthians 12:12 )

Utraquists - The followers of Hus, venerating him as a holy martyr of the old religion rather than as a founder of a new one, objected to the appellation "Hussites," which implied separation from the Universal Church, for they believed their creed to be truly Catholic; but during the Hussite Wars the name became commonly applied both to the Original followers of Hus and to the subsequent smaller sects into which they divided

Monoimus - But there is a common source of this language in the Ἀπόφασις μεγάλη of Simon, this passage also being clearly the Original of the description given by Monoimus of the contradictory attributes of his first principle
Pastor - The Original authority for the story appears to be a letter purporting to be written by Pastor to Timothy (see Boll AA
Nahum (2) - So the Original words, minzaraik , taphsarika , for "crowned" or "princes" (Nahum 3:17) and "captains" or "satraps " (also in Jeremiah 51:27); contact with Assyria brought in these words. Nahum 2:18, "the faces gather blackness," corresponds to Isaiah 13:8; Joel 2:6; Joel is probably the Original
Chaldaea - Ur or Umqueir, more toward the mouth of the Euphrates, was the Original chief city of Chaldaea; here inscriptions of the 22nd century B. The mountains of Armenia are thought by some to be their Original seat (the Carduchian mountains, according to Xenophon, Graciousness - ’ The words of the Original, ἐπὶ τοῖς λόγοις τῆς χάριτος, suggest such a rendering, since the Original meaning of χάρις, as it is found in Gr

Giant - The story of their origin is, however, common in more or less degree to many ancient races; and it is thought by some to have no Original connexion with the Flood story. ]'>[3] , is used of several probably different aboriginal peoples of Palestine, and probably meant ‘giants. ’ As, however, the four are said in 2 Samuel 21:22 to have fallen by the hand of David and his servants, and not one of them is described as slain by David, the passage is evidently incomplete, and the Original probably contained the story of some encounter by David, with which the story of Goliath came to be confused
Gideon - This, together with other indications, leads to the belief that in its Original form the earliest source gave an account of Gideon as king . This section is evidently a fragment of the Original source, which presumably went on to detail what further action the Ephraimites took during the Midianite campaign; for that the Midianite oppression was brought to an end by this one battle it is impossible to believe
Thorn - " Celsius says that the same word, and of the same Original in Arabic, is the" black thorn," or "sloe tree," the prunus spinosa of Linnaeus. The Septuagint preserves the Original word
Babel - Here, under the command of their new leader, and his dominant military and sacerdotal Cuthites, by whom the Original scheme of idolatry, the groundwork of which was probably laid in Armenia, was now perfected; and, with the express view to counteract the designs of the Almighty in their dispersion into different countries, they began to build the city and tower, and set up a banner which should serve as a mark of national union, and concentrate them in one unbroken empire; when they were defeated and dispersed by the miraculous confusion of tongues. The tower of Belus in Babylon, mentioned by Herodotus, was probably either the Original tower of Babel repaired, or it was constructed upon its massive foundations
Coins - Although the Original text mentions only “silver” with no specific coin, scholars feel that the figure “thirty” recalls the compensation required by law for killing a slave by accident ( Exodus 21:32 ). The KJV translates the Original words as “two mites, which make a farthing” while the RSV reads “two copper coins, which made a penny” (NIV: “two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny
Passover - ...
The Jews called the Passover Paschah or Pesach, and the Original meaning is flight or passage—perhaps in allusion to the flight or hasty departure of Israel from Egypt. If the lamb was set apart four days before the Passover—so was Christ, not only in the Original purpose, and council, and foreknowledge of God before all worlds, but also in four days' entrance into Jerusalem, as it is remarkable Christ did before his sufferings and death

Versions - "...
Originally it was oral, lest it might acquire undue authority; at the end of the second century it was generally read. Those extant are the Targum of Onkelos (or AQUILA, Smith's Bible Dictionary) on the Pentateuch (so named not because written by Aquila but because in Aramaic it did what Aquila aimed at in his Greek version, namely, to counteract the arbitrary corruptions of the Septuagint and to produce a translation scrupulously literal, for the benefit of those not knowing the Original language); the Targum of Jonathan ben Uzziel on the first and last prophets, more probably of Rabbi Joseph the blind, in the middle of the fourth century, full of invectives against Rome (Isaiah 34:9 mentioning Armillus (Antichrist), Isaiah 10:4; Germany, Ezekiel 38:6); also his targum on the Pentateuch; the Targum of Jerusalem on parts of the Pentateuch. He and Tyndale just before the latter's imprisonment had determined to edit the complete Bible and Apocrypha, based on the Original not on the Vulgate, etc. Words not in the Original are printed in different type; an asterisk marks diversity in the Chaldee and Hebrew; marginal references are given, but no notes; shrinking from so depreciatory an epithet as the Apocrypha, the editors substitute "Hagiographa," giving Matthew's preface to these disputed books otherwise unaltered; from whence arises the amusing blunder that they were called "Hagiographa," because "they were read in secret and apart" (which was the derivation, rightly given in Matthew's preface, for Apocrypha). ...
The Bishops' Bible was to be as little altered as the Original would permit. ...

Vengeance - Divine vengeance in the Old Testament is not to be understood as God's desire for self-gratification in exacting punishment, but as an expression of displeasure over all unrighteousness to restore the Original balance (Joel 3:19-21 )
Josiah - While this work was being carried on, Hilkiah, the high priest, discovered a roll, which was probably the Original copy of the law, the entire Pentateuch, written by Moses

Ishbosheth - ("man of shame"); substituted for his Original name Esh-baal (1 Chronicles 8:33; 1 Chronicles 9:39) in contempt of Baal, from some connection of the family with whom he had been named; so Jerub-baal, Jerub-besheth (Judges 8:35; Hosea 9:10)
Redeemer - The goel , nearest of kin, had three rights:...
(1) To purchase back the forfeited inheritance for an Israelite who, through poverty, had sold his land; as Boaz ("might in him"; the name of one of the two temple pillars; a type of Christ) did for Ruth (Ruth 4:3-5); or to hold land in possession for an impoverished kinsman until the year of Jubilee, when it should revert to the Original owner (Leviticus 25:10; Leviticus 25:13-16; Leviticus 25:24-28)

Ecclesiasticus - It is now evident that the work was written Originally in Hebrew to which reference had been made in ancient times (Talmud, Saint Jerome). According to the other theory, the book as we have it in the Greek is a compilation, the final redaction of which was made by the translator though in its major portion it may represent an Original composed by the son of Sirach
Covenant - And as the glorious person by whom the whole conditions of the covenant on the part of man was to be performed, had now, according to the Original settlements made in eternity, been manifested, and agreeably to the very period proposed, "in [1] the fulness of time, appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself," it was, therefore, called Covenant, in his blood

Weaving - Weaving, when reduced to its Original principle, is nothing more than the interlacing of the weft or cross threads into the parallel threads of the warp, so as to tie them together, and form a web or piece of cloth
Hair - The Apostle's remark on this subject corresponds entirely with the custom of the east; as well as with the Original design of the Creator: "Does not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him? But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given her for a covering," 1 Corinthians 11:14 . Some are of opinion that camlet derives its name from the camel, being Originally composed of the wool and hair of camels; but at present there is no camel's hair in the composition of it, as it is commonly woven and sold among us
Only Begotten - In the Original the definite article is omitted both before "only begotten" and before "Father," and its absence in each case serves to lay stress upon the characteristics referred to in the terms used

Samuel, Books of - The two Books of Samuel are really parts of what was Originally one book. In any effort to recover the Original text large use must be made of the Septuagint, which is based upon a Hebrew text at least as old as the 3rd cent. , and has preserved the Original reading in many cases, while showing traces of it in others. In the attempt, however, to resolve the narrative into its Original elements, two different schools of analysts have been formed
Jerusalem - This name is in the Original in the dual form, and means "possession of peace," or "foundation of peace. ...
The city of David included both the upper city and Millo, and was surrounded by a wall built by David and Solomon, who appear to have restored the Original Jebusite fortifications. The priests' quarter grew up on Ophel, south of the Temple, where also was Solomon's Palace outside the Original city of David
Sermon on the Mount - contain sayings of Jesus which were not parts of the Original Sermon. Original form. (especially with the discourse in Luke 6) raises the question as to which of these two versions of our Lord’s utterances is the more Original. They must have been working on two different collections of Logia, though perhaps both Originally based on Matthew’s Hebrew collection; and the divergence must have taken place earlier—among irresponsible transcribers—by more gradual stages. ...
In this connexion the most important question is that of the Original form of the Beatitudes, in regard to which the following points claim our attention: (1) In Mt. Now, in favour of the Originality of Mt. , it may be urged that the greater spiritual value of its version of the Beatitudes points to their Originality, for we cannot believe that it was given to copyists and catechists to greatly enrich their Master’s teachings. But we may admit the genuineness of the sayings and yet deny them a place in the Original Sermon on the Mount; for it has been shown above that Mt. (c) It is difficult to think that if our Lord gave the sayings Originally with their ethical and spiritual characterization, this could have dropped out accidentally, or have been deliberately eliminated so as to confine them to social relations
Example - In the teaching of Jesus no truth is more essential than that God the Father Himself is the Original and absolute example for all personal life. He is the ‘archetype,’ the ‘original,’ of our personal life. Now an Original is not passively there to be copied; it sustains some sort of active causal relation to the copy. So Christ is our example in this more vital sense: He is at once example and Original (admirably expressed in Ger. As our ‘original,’ Christ not only (as in the case of mere examples in personal life) mysteriously impresses us, but also imparts life and power through His Spirit (John 1:16-17; John 5:24-26, Romans 8:2, Galatians 2:20, Colossians 3:3-4, 1 John 5:11 ff
Scripture - The italics in the English versions do not indicate emphatic words, but are inserted by the translators to complete the sense and to show that there are no words in the Original Hebrew or Greek to correspond with these English words in italics. The Original text of the Old Testament is Hebrew (except a small portion in Chaldaic); the New Testament was written in Greek. The toils of a long succession of scholars have sufficed to furnish a text that satisfactorily represents the Original. The Jews, however, abandoned it, and returned to the study and use of the Original Hebrew. It was the first complete English translation from the Original Hebrew and Greek texts, and the first English Bible divided into modern chapters and verses
Mss - , which were incorporated into the Peshiṭta to fill the gap caused by their Original omission there, and a single MS of the Apoc. After 431 this version was revised by the help of Greek MSS received from Constantinople, which were apparently akin to B א , and thereby the Original features of the version were much obscured. The kinship which the text of the OL has with the Old Syriac bas caused Antioch to be suggested (by Sanday) as the Original home of the version, that being a metropolis where Syrian and Latin elements met, and whence versions of the Scriptures in either tongue might radiate from a common centre. It is not possible, even approximately, to reconstruct the Original OL text; it is even a matter of dispute whether it had one Original or more. At his request, Jerome, the leading Biblical scholar of the day, who had devoted many years to the study of the Scriptures in the East in their Original tongues, undertook, as he says in his preface to the NT, to ‘make a new work out of an old one’ by revising the existing Latin texts with reference to the Original languages. Where the existing text fairly represented the sense of the Original, he let it stand, without enforcing complete accuracy; only where errors affected the sense did he feel bound to make alterations. In favour of an early date is the fact that the Apocalypse was apparently not Originally contained in it; this book seems to have been generally accepted after the end of the 3rd cent
Valentinus, Founder of a Gnostic Sect - Then follows, in the same Original work as quoted by Irenaeus ( Haer. Tertullian indicates Axionikos as the only one who in his day still represented the Original teaching of Valentinus. —Statements concerning Valentinus and his school are very numerous, but many are so contradictory that it is difficult to distinguish the Original doctrine of Valentinus from later developments. The Original authority on which this description is based cannot have been the same as that in the Syntagma which belonged to the anatolic school, the former being a product of the Western or Italian. But his Original authority is entirely independent of the sources used by Irenaeus. —A review of the accounts given by the Fathers confirms the judgment that, with the means at our command, it is very difficult to distinguish between the Original doctrine of Valentinus and the later developments made by his disciples. Could we otherwise assume that the fragment is genuine, it would serve to prove that the doctrine of the Oriental school concerning the pneumatic body of Christ was in fact the Original teaching of Valentinus. When, however, we find him designating the Demiurge as author of death, we can hardly suppose that he derived the transitory nature and other imperfections of the terrestrial universe from an Originally evil material substance. " We may therefore regard as an axiom to be adhered to in our investigations that of any two Valentinian doctrines that is the older and more Original which approaches more closely to the older and vulgar Gnosis (Iren
Jonah - ...
It has been maintained by some that Matthew 12:40 is no part of our Lord’s Original utterance, but is either an amplification by the Evangelist of Matthew 12:39 (and cf. (4) Add that (3) harmonizes well with Luke 11:30, which was perhaps the Original out of which Matthew 12:40 was evolved. (4) Luke 11:30, instead of being the Original, may well be a summary report of Matthew 12:40 as suggested above,—an explanation rendered not improbable by the whole form and tenor of the passage in Lk. On the whole, the conclusion that this verse is really part of our Lord’s Original utterance can be fully justified
Esdras, the Second Book of - consists of 16 chapters; but the first two and last two are separate works which have been added to the Original book, and have no inward connexion with it. -The Original text no longer exists; but versions are extant in Latin, Syriac, Ethiopic, Arabic (two), and Armenian. The basis of all the existing versions, with the possible exception of the Armenian, is generally acknowledged to be a Greek text, now lost; but some difference of opinion has arisen as to whether that was the Original text. While the more prevalent view that the book was composed in Greek has found such defenders as Lücke, Volkmar, and Hilgenfeld, some recent scholars, including Wellhausen, Charles, Gunkel, and Box, contend for a Hebrew Original
Resurrection - The notion of an incorruptible germ, or that of an Original and unchangeable stamen, out of which a new and glorious body, at the resurrection, is to spring, appears to have been borrowed from the speculations of some of the Jewish rabbins. Now, if they have this by Original quality, then the same quality may just as easily be supposed to appertain to every particle which composes a human body; so that, though it be used for food, it shall not be capable of assimilation, in any circumstances, with another human body. But if these germs, or stamina, have not this quality by their Original nature, they can only be prevented from assimilating with each other by that operation of God which is present to all his works, and which must always be directed to secure the execution of his own ultimate designs. To suppose that he cannot prevent this, is to deny his power; to suppose him inattentive to it, is to suppose him indifferent to his own designs; and to assume that he employs care to prevent it, is to assume nothing greater, nothing in fact so great, as many instances of control, which are always occurring; as, for instance, the regulation of the proportion of the sexes in human births, which cannot be attributed to chance, but must either be referred to superintendence, or to some Original law
Hebrews - Clement, of Alexandria, Eusebius, and Jerom, thought that this epistle was Originally written in the Hebrew language; but all the other ancient fathers who have mentioned this subject speak of the Greek as the Original work; and as no one pretends to have seen this epistle in Hebrew, as there are no internal marks of the Greek being a translation, and as we know that the Greek language was at this time very generally understood at Jerusalem, we may accede to the more common opinion, both among the ancients and moderns, and consider the present Greek as the Original text. It is no small satisfaction to reflect, that those who have denied either the genuineness or the Originality of this epistle have always supposed it to have been written or translated by some fellow labourer or assistant of St. ) As to the language in which the epistle was Originally written, there has been a difference of opinion among critics, both in ancient and modern times. It is quite plain also, that these fathers were led to the conclusion, that the Epistle to the Hebrews was Originally written in the dialect of Palestine, from their belief, so universal in ancient times, of its having been addressed to some church, or to the churches, in that country. Why should it not be supposed, that if, as is probable, this epistle was Originally directed to Palestine, it was written in the dialect of that country? So the fathers above quoted evidently thought and reasoned; although other fathers have said nothing on this point, and do not appear to have coincided in opinion with those to whom I have just referred. Yet, assuming such a meaning, he thence concludes, that the Original writer must have expressed a different idea, and that the translator mistook his meaning. He then undertakes to conjecture what the Original Hebrew must have been. On the other hand, Bolton, a sharp-sighted critic, and well acquainted with the Aramean language, who has gone through with the New Testament, and found almost every where marks, as he thinks, of translation from Aramean documents, confesses, that, in respect to this epistle, he finds not a single vestige of incorrect translation from an Aramean Original, and no marks that there ever was such an Original. This testimony is of considerable importance in respect to the question before us, as it comes from a critic who spent many years on the study of that which is most intimately connected with the very subject under consideration, namely, the detection of the Aramean Originals of the various parts of the New Testament. ) The principal arguments in favour of a Hebrew Original are deduced from two sources: That Hebrews are addressed in our epistle, to whom the Hebrew language would have been more acceptable and intelligible, and many of whom, indeed, could not understand Greek, certainly could not read it: That the diversity of style in the Epistle to the Hebrews is so great, when compared to that of St. But, whatever may be the estimation put upon arguments of this nature, there are internal marks of its having been Originally composed in Greek, which cannot well be overlooked
Greek Versions of ot - Not only are its relations to the Original Hebrew of the OT more difficult and obscure than those of any other version to its Original, but, as the Greek OT of the Christian community from its earliest days, it has a special historical importance which no other version can claim, and only the Vulgate can approach. That the Letter of Aristeas is substantially right in assigning the Original translation of the Law to the time of one of the early Ptolemys there is no reason to doubt; but the story has the air of having been considerably written up, and it is impossible to say precisely where history stops and fiction begins. ]'>[1] ; Job, the Original LXX Version - This translation of the Old Testament seems to have been made not from the Original Hebrew but from the LXX. It is regarded as the sacred Original in the Roman Catholic Church
Versions, Ancient, of the Old And New Testaments, - ...
The Targums were Originally oral, and the earliest Targum, which is that of Onkelos on the Pentateuch, began to be committed to writing about the second century of the Christian era; though if did not assume its present shape till the end of the third or the beginning of the fourth century. In the early times of Syrian Christianity there was executed a version of the Old Testament from the Original Hebrew, the use of which must have been as widely extended as was the Christian profession among that people. The Old Syriac has the peculiar value of being the first version from the Hebrew Original made for Christian use
Mansion - But while the English ‘mansion’ and the identical French word maison have retained from their common Original only the developed meaning of ‘dwelling-place,’ the Greek μονή is nowhere in extant literature found with this meaning, save only in John 14:2. 2 and 23, concrete and abstract respectively, will be derived from the idea of rest that has become attached to the word, as well as from the Original idea of remaining
Preaching - On these occasions the lesson from the Law was read in the Original Hebrew, and explained in the form of a paraphrase in the Aramaic vernacular by a methurgemân (dragoman) or interpreter. Thus Originally the sermon was essentially an exposition (of a legal kind) of some part of Scripture. But Original as they were in substance, these addresses were still Semitic in form, and we must guard against importing our Western ideas of rhetoric into what were essentially Eastern homilies
pe'Ter - The Original name of this disciple was Simon, i. It is observable; however, that on that occasion he is called by his Original name, Simon not Peter; the higher designation was not restored until he had been publicly reinstituted, so to speak, by his Master
New Commandment - Here more signally than elsewhere the Fourth Evangelist betrays the influence of the later Church-idea which had narrowed the Original intention of the teaching of Christ. The true Originality of the moral demand of Jesus consisted in its breaking away from the idea of outward requirement. In a subsequent age, which had drifted out of sympathy with the Original teaching of Jesus, the ‘new commandment’ became literally the nova lex
Divorce - Jesus reminds them of God's Original ideal for marriage in Genesis 2:24 : a male and a female were created to become a permanent "one flesh" union. Jesus states that 1618100602_14 permitted divorce solely because of man's hard (sinful) heart, but this was not God's Original plan for marriage ( Matthew 19:8 ). However, one must accept the exception clause as genuine, valid, and Original in Matthew
Reason - ...
After the exercise of reason has established in our minds a firm belief that Christianity is of divine Original, the second use of reason is to learn what are the truths revealed. In order to attain the meaning of these books we must study the language in which they were written; and we must study also the manners of the times, and the state of the countries, in which the writers lived; because these are circumstances to which an Original author is often alluding, and by which his phraseology is generally affected; we must lay together different passages in which the same word or phrase occurs, because without this labour we cannot obtain its precise signification; and we must mark the difference of style and manner which characterizes different writers, because a right apprehension of their meaning often depends upon attention to this difference. The Christian doctrine has been vindicated by their masterly exposition from various misrepresentations; the arguments for its divine Original have been placed in their true light; and the attempts to confound the miracles and prophecies upon which Christianity rests its claim, with the delusions of imposture, have been effectually repelled
Old Testament - (Psalm 40:7 ; Jeremiah 36:14 ; Ezekiel 2:9 ; Zechariah 5:1 ) The Original character in which the text was expressed is that still preserved to us, with the exception of four letters, on the Maccabaean coins, and having a strong affinity to the Samaritan character. In someplaces,again, the a words of the Original are taken up, but employed with a new meaning. and that without a reference to this Original source the most essential features of the fulfillment of Zechariah's prophecy would be misunderstood
Acts of the Apostles - -It is probable from the quotations in Aphraates and Ephraim that there existed Originally an Old-Syriac Version of Acts, corresponding to the Evangelion da-Mepharreshe represented by the Curetonian and Sinaitic Manuscripts ; but no manuscript of this type has survived. They regarded δ5 (Codex Bezae) as representing the ‘Western’ text, and δ1 and δ2 as representing as nearly as possible the Original text. ), using the new facts as to the Manuscripts summarized above, has revived Blass’s theory in so far that be thinks that the interpolated text witnessed to by δ5 and the Latin Versions and Fathers really goes back to a single Original; but, instead of assigning this Original to Luke, he attributes it to Tatian, who, he thinks, added a new recension of Acts to his Diatessaron. It is also very desirable to investigate how far it is possible to prove that there was an I text, derived from I-H-K, which nevertheless did not possess, in its Original state, all the ‘Bezan’ interpolations. But it does not follow that the text omitting πνικτοῦ, in which this interpolation is placed, is not Original
Shiloh - ...
The Original name, as shown by the gentilic Shilonite , was Shiôn
Tadmor - Nevertheless it is quite certain that Tamar is the Original reading
Sil'Oam - The present pool is not the Original building; it may be the work of crusaders, perhaps even improved by Saladin, whose affection for wells and pools led him to care for all these things
Jehovah Our Righteousness - The margin of our Bible hath preserved the Original Hebrew, JEHOVAH Tzidkenu, in both places where meet with this glorious name of the Lord Jesus, (Jeremiah 23:6; Jer 33:16) and a most blessed and soul-comforting name it is for the present and everlasting joy of a poor sinner, conscious that in himself he is void of all righteousness
Bible And the Popes, the - Pius X continued the work of his distinguished predecessor through the issuance of several letters, chief of which are the Apostolic letter of November 18, 1907, in which he gives instructions regarding the methods to be employed in the teaching of Sacred Scriptures in the seminaries; a letter written December 3, 1907, addressed to Abbot Gasquet, authorizing him to begin the revision of the Vulgate with a view to reproducing as far as was possible the Original text of Saint Jerome; and the Apostolic letter, "Vinea Electa," May 7, 1909, through which medium he officially established the Pontifical Biblical Institute at Rome
Seed - ...
As to 1 John 3:9 , "his seed abideth in him," it is possible to understand this as meaning that children of God (His "seed") abide in Him, and do not go on doing (practicing) sin (the verb "to commit" does not represent the Original in this passage)
Power - (3) The subject of power in Scripture may be viewed under the following heads: (a) its Original source, in the Persons in the Godhead; (b) its exercise by God in creation, its preservation and its government; (c) special manifestations of Divine "power," past, present and future; (d) "power" existent in created beings, other than man, and in inanimate nature; (e) committed to man, and misused by him; (f) committed to those who, on becoming believers, were "empowered" by the Spirit of God, are indwelt by Him, and will exercise it hereafter for God's glory
Generation, Eternal - The Father is said by some divines to have produced the Word, or Son, from all eternity, by way of generation; on which occasion the word generation raises a peculiar idea: that procession which is really affected in the way of understanding is called generation, because, in virtue thereof, the Word becomes like to Him from whom he takes the Original; or, as St
Midrash - ...
An important use of the Midrash is that it gives the interpreter of Scripture a greater insight into interpretation from a people closer to the Original appearance of the Old Testament books, as well as an understanding of the text across history by Jewish people
Fear - ...
The fundamental and Original idea expressed by these terms covers a semantic range from mild easiness to stark terror, depending on the object of the fear and the circumstances surrounding the experience
Malachi - However, with no one to replace the Original strong leaders, people of later generations drifted from God
Rechab - its safeguard, and that their austere followers were "sells of the chariot," which phrase was subsequently, through ignorance of the Original meaning, made "sons of Rechab
Widow - 8) that the word ‘widow’ here may have been ‘Gentile’ in some Aramaic Original, ܐܪܡܢܬܐ (armaitha), the feminine of ‘Gentile’ or ‘Syrian ‘having been confused with ܐܪܡܠܬܐ (armalta), ‘a widow
Cuttings in the Flesh - ’ The same prohibition, otherwise expressed in the Original, is found in the earlier Deuteronomic legislation ( Deuteronomy 14:1 ). The object in view may have been either so to disfigure the living that they should be unrecognizable by the malignant spirits of the dead, or, more probably, by means of the effusion of blood which Originally, perhaps, was brought into contact with the corpse to maintain or renew the bond of union between the living and the dead
Epaphroditus - In virtue of the designation ἀπόστολος (Philippians 2:25) the Greek Church places Epaphroditus in the same rank with Barnabas, Silas, and others; but the contest suggests the Original meaning, ‘messenger
Michael - 1, however, it is the angel of the presence who instructs Moses and delivers to him the tables of the Law, and in what was probably the Original Assumption of Moses (preserved only in Greek fragments) ‘Michael the archangel’ is expressly said to have taught Moses at the giving of the Law
Shadow - The tabernacle itself was made by Moses only according to the ‘pattern’ (τύπον) of the heavenly Original, the ‘true tabernacle’ pitched by God (Hebrews 8:2)
Gehenna (2) - ’ It is a ‘deep and yawning gorge’ (Wilson), and ‘never contains water’ (Socin), its descent from its Original source to Bir Eyyub being approximately 670 ft
Malchus - Josephus (see Niese’s index) mentions five persons who bore it under the form of Μάλχος or Μάλιχος, whence an Original מָלִיךְ has been inferred (Dalman, Gram
Spikenard - 1–15) conjectures an Original form, σπειστικῆς (= ‘liquid’), which, being a ἅπαξ λεγόμενον, might have been corrupted into πιστικῆς
Corn - —In Authorized Version of the Gospels ‘corn’ is used to translate four distinct words in the Original:...
(1) σπόριμα: ‘Jesus went on the Sabbath day through the corn’ (Matthew 12:1)
Colony - The careful reader of Acts 16:12, the only place in the NT where the term ‘colony’ (κολωνία, a mere transliteration of the Latin Original) occurs, sees at once that a Roman colony must have been very different from what we understand by the word ‘colony
Composition - Mutual agreement for the discharge of a debt, on terms or by means different from those required by the Original contract, or by law, as by the payment of a different sum, or by making other compensation
Affection - It is distinguishable from disposition, which being a branch of one's nature Originally, must exist before there can be an opportunity to exert it upon any particular object; whereas affection can never be Original, because having a special relation to a particular object, it cannot exist till the object have once, at least, been presented
Darkness - In the natural sense of the word, it means the obscurity, such as is described at the Original state of things, when JEHOVAH went forth in acts of creation
Kinsman - So again Job 19:25 "For I know that my Redeemer liveth," In the Original it is the same word Goel, meaning kinsman, Redeemer
Hate - And every one that knows the Original word here made use of to express the verb hate, knows that Misei can mean no other than to hate
Cluster - The word camphire is in the Original, copher, and in the Misnah is translated, cyprus
Complete - However, this Hebrew root is also found in words with so many nuances and applications that at times its Original and basic intent is all but obscured
Ambassage - Both in the Original and the translation the abstract is used for the concrete; a term meaning the office or message of an ambassador or body of ambassadors for the ambassadors themselves
Evagrius - Not a few Original documents, decrees of councils, supplications to emperors, letters of emperors and bishops, etc
Temple - However, since Scripture portrays the presence of the royal judgment throne in heaven, it is not altogether impossible that the Original authors had a royal “palace” in mind
Abuse, Abusers - ’ Tests like this apply in their Original freshness and strength to times of crisis (cf
But - 2 Kings 7 ...
The common people in America retain the Original and correct phrase,usually employing a negative
Rephidim - " On their way to Rephidim, the Amalekites, the Original inhabitants of the country, who are noticed in Abraham's days, Genesis 14:7 , not having the fear of God before their eyes, nor regarding the judgments recently inflicted on the Egyptians, attacked the rear of the Israelites when they were faint and weary; but were defeated by a chosen party, under the command of Joshua, the faithful lieutenant of Moses, who is first noticed on this occasion, and even then pointed out by the Lord as his successor
Divorce - Finding himself, however, unable, to overrule feelings and practices of very ancient standing, he merely annexed to the Original institution of marriage a very serious admonition to this effect, viz
Friends - The latter are considered as having departed from the Original doctrines of the Friends, and very far from the leading doctrines of Christianity, as held by Protestant Christians in general
Seismology - 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
mo'ab - The Moabites first inhabited the rich highlands which crown the eastern side of the chasm of the Dead Sea, extending as far north as the mountain of Gilead, from which country they expelled the Emims, the Original inhabitants, (2:11) but they themselves were afterward driven southward by the warlike Amorites, who had crossed the Jordan, and were confined to the country south of the river Arnon, which formed their northern boundary
Azari'ah - ...

Paronomasia - had a Hebrew or Aramaic Original. * Petrus, Bishop of Sebaste - Gregory's Original intention was to limit his refutation to the first of Eunomius's two books
Teaching of the Twelve Apostles - " That both titles belong to the Original form appears probable from the phrase "the Twelve Apostles. But, as in the case of the Apostles' Creed, a title apparently Originally only intended to assert conformity with apostolic teaching, came to be understood as an assertion of authorship, and later authorities undertook to specify the portions contributed by each apostle; and later works founded on the Didaché are divided into sections supposed to be contributed by individual apostles. Thus, scanty though the Western notices are, they seem to prove that the Didaché , in Bryennius's form, never circulated in the West; that the Latin Doctrina Apostolorum , even as regards the section on the "Two Ways," was not a translation of Bryennius's Didaché , but contained a different manipulation of a probably common Original; and that beyond the "Two Ways" there is no evidence that the Latin form had anything in common with the Didaché . If Barnabas and the Didaché independently copied an Originally Jewish document, the Christian elements they might add would not be likely to be the same. The phenomena are explained if we assume an Original document in substantial agreement with the Latin, enlarged in the Didaché by additions from N. We cannot say positively whether this Original proceeded beyond the "Two Ways. " The Latin fragment breaks off too soon to give any information as to the length of the Original: the Church Ordinances cease to present coincidences with the Didaché after the section on the "Two Ways"; but this may be because the directions for ritual and discipline had become out of date when the Ordinances were put together, the editor therefore designedly substituting what better agreed with the practice of his own age. If the editor of Bryennius's form knew Hermas, he might also have known Barnabas, with whom he has a second coincidence in a passage about almsgiving, which, as implying a knowledge of Acts and Romans, Barnabas was not likely to have found in his Original. In this case the Original seems clearly that of Hermas. We conclude, then, without disputing the greater antiquity of the Original Didaché , that the interpolator who brought the work to the form published by Bryennius was later than Hermas, and drew from him
Pelagianism And Pelagius - His name undoubtedly looks like a Grecized version of some earlier name; but the tradition that the Original name of the heresiarch was Morgan (Marigena, Πελάγιος and that he came from Bangor in N. Coelestius, Originally an advocate, was led by Pelagius to a strict religious life, and very soon became an ardent disciple and a propagandist of his master's views. This novel doctrine appeared to Augustine to deny the teaching of the church, as it virtually involved the denial of any guilt of Original sin which needed forgiveness. The work Originally consisted of two books. The first established the positions that death in man was the penalty of sin, and not a mere condition of his natural constitution; that the whole offspring of Adam was affected by his sin, and that baptism of infants was for the remission of Original sin, the guilt of which they bear from their birth. Augustine added to this treatise as a third book a letter he wrote to Marcellinus when, a very few days after the compilation of the two books, he became acquainted with some fresh arguments against Original sin advanced in the exposition of the Epistles of St. , while arguing strongly against the views of the nature of Original sin propounded by Pelagius, he speaks of Pelagius with marked respect, calling him a signally Christian man, a highly advanced Christian ("vir ille tam egregie Christianus," de Pecc. From it we learn that the Pelagians now taught that infants were baptized not because they needed any remission of the guilt of Original or actual sin from which they were wholly free but that they might enter the kingdom of God and thereby obtain salvation and eternal life. Nature was magnified, as if the admission of a subsequent corruption was derogatory to the goodness of the Original creation. They specially marked some passages in Pelagius, from which they thought Innocent must inevitably conclude that Pelagius allowed no other grace than the nature with which God had Originally endowed man. Anathemas were pronounced on the doctrine that infants derive no Original sin from Adam which needs expiation in baptism, and that there is some middle place of happiness in the kingdom of heaven for infants who die unbaptized
Create, Creation - The seas, which are remnants of the Original watery chaos, are assigned borders at earth's edges (vv. , seven words in the Original Hebrew version of the introductory verse [4]; seven paragraphs corresponding to the seven days following the introductory verse fourteen words in v. Although the term "covenant" is not found in Genesis 1-2 , it is implicit in the reciprocity of God's provisions for the Original human couple and their conformity to his expectations of them. ...
It should be pointed out that Genesis emphasizes the spiritual equality and interdependence of the Original human couple (1:26-28; 2:18-23). The theme of Original creation also gives rise to another important theological concept: re-creation. ...
The idea of a new creation in an eschatological sense brings the Original theme full circle
Mark, Gospel According to - Aramaic or Greek Original. Is our Second Gospel the Original Mark?...
Literature. We shall then be able to come to a conclusion about questions of date, authorship, and place of writing, of the Original language, and of the integrity of the Gospel. Finally, we will consider the question of an ‘Ur-Marcus,’ that is, if the Gospel in our hands is the Original work of St. 24) takes ‘quibus tamen’ as the equivalent of an Original οἶς δέ—for the fragment is a Latin translation from Greek. ...
Putting together the statements, references, and quotations, and deferring the question of an editor later than the Original writer of the Gospel (see § vii
Baptize, Baptism - ...
Luke's account of apostolic baptism assumes the rite's Original association with repentance and remission (Acts 2:38 ), with washing away sin (22:16), and with admission to the religious community. ...
Reflection on the church's practice enriched further the theological and ethical significance of baptism, without varying its conditions or abandoning its Original meaning. ...
So, too, Paul assumes the Original method of immersion (Romans 6 ) and the accompanying confession of Christ's lordship (Romans 10:9-13 ), which in 1618100602_28:19-20 , and Galatians 3:29,5:24 clearly implies belonging to Christ. ...
Paul retained, too, the Original interpretation of baptism as entrance to the religious community: "We were all baptized into one body" (1 Corinthians 12:13 )
Devil - Used with the definite article, its Original meaning was that of the accuser or traducer of men (see Satan), whence it soon came to denote the supreme spirit of evil, the personal tempter of man and enemy of God. With the indefinite article it stands for a malignant being of superhuman nature and powers, and represents the conception expressed by the Greeks in the Original of our term ‘ demon . Death is his realm ( Hebrews 2:14 , Wis 2:24 ), and not a part of the Original Divine order; though not inflicted at his pleasure, he makes it subservient to his purposes, and in its spiritual sense it becomes the fate of those who accept his rule. He is not conceived as the Original or only source of evil, but as its supreme personal representative
Plan - Was the Messianic claim an Original part of this programme? We have here the crucial issue on which the whole question of the plan of Jesus may be said to hinge. The first intention of Jesus was, they say, simply to proclaim the Kingdom of God; and the assumption of Messiahship was forced upon Him by the failure of His Original message. It is difficult, however, to avoid the conclusion that from Caesarea Philippi onward His Original plan was set aside. It seems clear, however, from numerous indications in the Gospels, that His Original plan was confined to a mission to Israel
Testaments of the Twelve Patriarchs - The Original work was written in Hebrew in the later years of John Hyrcanus, probably 109-106 b. , some of which are as bitter in their attacks on the Hasmonaeans as the Original Testaments were fervent in their praises. -The text supplies several indications of the date of the Original work. Original language. -Until the last few years it was generally agreed that the Testaments, as we now have them, were not a, translation but were Originally written in Greet. 33-49, 109-117), has put forward an unanswerable case for a Hebrew Original (see his Greek Versions of the Testaments, pp. 1) is no proof that the Original was in Greek, as the reference appears to be to שׂריון (Sirion) and שׁדיון (‘body armour’)-a word (occurring in the parallel passage in Hebrew in the Midrash Wajjissau), which is more properly rendered θώραξ; in Test. -The Hebrew Original is not extant, but we have valuable evidence available towards the restoration of corrupt and difficult passages in kindred literature:...
Gospels, Apocryphal - It may even have been one form of the Original Gospel of Jesus, co-ordinate with the Logia of Matthew and the earliest section of the Book of Luke. At all events, the Gospel is to be distinguished from the Hebrew Original of the canonical Gospel of Matthew mentioned by Papias (Euseb. The probability that it represents the Original Evangelic tradition is not as strong as in the case of the Gospel according to the Hebrews. It is not impossible, however, that the Gospel of the Egyptians contained the Original tradition, but in form sufficiently variant to admit of manipulation by groups of heretics. The Original cannot well be later than the middle of the 2nd cent. It exists to-day in Greek, Latin, and Syriac versions, which, however, do not altogether agree, and all of which are apparently abbreviated recensions of the Original Gospel. The Original Gospel of Thomas, the nature of which is, however, very much in dispute, may have been in existence in the middle of the 2nd century
Sabbath - But the Original proclamation of it in Exodus places it on a ground which, closely connected no doubt with these others is yet higher and more comprehensive. They had invented many prohibitions respecting the Sabbath of which we find nothing in the Original institution
Esau - Isaac too erred through carnal partiality, which he sought to stimulate by eating his favorite's venison, determining to give to Esau the blessing in spite of the Original divine intimation, "the elder shall serve the younger," and in spite of Esau's actual sale of the birthright to Jacob, and though Esau had shown his unworthiness of it by taking when he was forty years of age two Hittite wives from among the corrupt Canaanites, to his father's and mother's grief. He carried away all his substance from Canaan there, to take full possession of Seir and drive out its Original inhabitants
Arabia - The Arabah, Originally restricted to one wady, came to be applied to all Arabia. "...
Joktan, son of Eber (Genesis 10:25), was the Original founder, Ishmael the subsequent head, of its population. The Hagarenes, Originally the same as the Ishmaelites, subsequently are mentioned as distinct (1 Chronicles 5:10; 1 Chronicles 5:19; 1 Chronicles 5:22; Psalms 83:6). Cush, son of Ham, Originally peopled Arabia (the ruins of Marib, or Seba, and the inscriptions are Cushite; in Babylonia too there are Cushite traces); then Joktan, of Shem's race (Genesis 10:7; Genesis 10:20; Genesis 10:25; Genesis 10:30). Sabeanism, or the worship of the hosts, the sun, moon, and stars, was the first lapse from Original revelation (Job 31:26-27); but just before Mahomet they were divided between it, Judaism, Magianism, and corrupted Christianity
Spirit - ) In the following list the omission of the definite article marks its omission in the Original (concerning this see below): "Spirit, Matthew 22:43 ; Eternal Spirit, Hebrews 9:14 ; the Spirit, Matthew 4:1 ; Holy Spirit, Matthew 1:18 ; the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19 ; the Spirit, the Holy, Matthew 12:32 ; the Spirit of promise, the Holy, Ephesians 1:13 ; Spirit of God, Romans 8:9 ; Spirit of (the) living God, 2 Corinthians 3:3 ; the Spirit of God, 1 Corinthians 2:11 ; the Spirit of our God, 1 Corinthians 6:11 ; the Spirit of God, the Holy, Ephesians 4:30 ; the Spirit of glory and of God, 1 Peter 4:14 ; the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead (i. ]'>[2] ...
The use or absence of the article in the Original where the "Holy Spirit" is spoken of cannot always be decided by grammatical rules, nor can the presence or absence of the article alone determine whether the reference is to the "Holy Spirit
Phoenice - The language is Semitic (from Shem), and was acquired by the Hamitic settlers in Canaan from the Original Semitic occupants; it probably has a Hamitic element too (these Semitics were related by common Noachic descent to the Hamites, hence the languages too are related). Abram Originally spoke the language of Ur of the Chaldees, Aramaic, as did Laban (Genesis 11:31; Genesis 31:47); but soon his descendants, as Jacob, spoke the Canaanite or Phoenician Hebrew as their own tongue, compare Deuteronomy 26:5. The Original Greek and Phoenician letters resembled one another, though not so the modern Hebrew and later Greek. The Hebrew or Phoenician Originally are rude pictures of the objects signified by the names: 'Αleph ( א ), of an ox head; Gimel ( ג ), of a camel's back; Daleth ( ד ), of a tent door; Vav ( ו ), of a hook or peg; Lamed[1] ( ל ), of an ox goad; 'Αyin ( ע ), of an eye; Qoph ( ק ), of the back of the head; Resh ( ר ), of a head; Τav [3] ( ת ), of a cross. This proves that when the Greeks received Originally the letters from the East the names by which they learned them were Aramaic
Hosea - The name of the prophet Hosea, though distinguished by the English translators, is identical with that of the last king of Israel and with the Original name of Joshua; in these cases it appears in the EV Bible, History of Interpretation - This was the analysis of all of the available biblical manuscripts, comparing the variant readings, and making an informed judgment as to what the Original text of the Scriptures really was. Much effort was expended on determining who the Original writer of a portion of Scripture was and learning what the historical-cultural conditions of his setting were
Caesar, Caesar's Household - ’ Luke alters his Original to the good Greek word φόρος (Lat. The right of appeal (provocatio) was one of the bulwarks of the Original republican constitution
Judaizing Christians - Paul is directed against the Judaizing teachers who inculcated the Original tenet of their brethren. The other party, who were called Ebionites, either from Ebion, the name, it is alleged, of their leader, from their poverty, or from the low notions which they entertained of Christ, for all these reasons have been specified, showing sufficiently that the matter is really uncertain,— maintained the Original tenet that their law was binding upon all men, and that without observing what it required it was impossible to be justified
Noah - Smith has deciphered the account of the flood in three distinct copies, containing duplicate texts of an ancient Original. The Original, according to the tablets, belonged to the city of Erech, and was in Semitic Babylonian. The Assyrian copyists did not always know the modern representatives of the ancient forms of the characters in the Original, so have left some in their obsolete hieratic form. ...
The scribe has recorded the divisions of lines in the Original. What were Originally explanatory glosses have been incorporated in the text. Smith thinks the Original text was about 1700 B. The various yet mainly agreeing accounts imply the Original unity of mankind diverging from one common center after the flood, and carrying to their various lands the story which has by corruption assumed various shapes. ...
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
Manuscripts - The simplest course will be to divide them into the languages in which they are written, premising that the Gospels were Originally written in Greek, and that the versions in other languages are translations, generally direct, from the Greek. It has been twice revised, once by a corrector contemporary with the Original scribe (called B2 [1] ), and again by another of the 10th or 11th cent. Originally it contained probably Mt. It contains, therefore, many Original elements, which have been worked over at a very early date. He considers N and Σ to be copies of the same lost Original. In its Original state it contained Mt. In its Original form the MS had 166 leaves, containing the four Gospels in the usual order. Of the two Manuscripts this must be regarded as the better representative of the Original translation
Sirach - -The person who bore this name was the father of a Jesus, author of a Hebrew work of which the Original is lost, but which is preserved in a Greek translation called Σοφία Ἰησοῦ υἱοῦ Σειράχ, a Syriac translation called The Words of Jesus son of Simon called son of Asira (i. The Hebrew Original doubtless perished when the rest of the non-canonical literature in that language was destroyed; and such specimens as are preserved in the collections of oral tradition are exceedingly inaccurate, inconsistent, and mixed up with biblical and other matter, while at times sayings of Ben-Sira are ascribed to other Rabbis. ...
To the Greek translation there is prefixed a preface of great interest, said to be the only known honest paragraph by any Israelite of this period, in which the translator states that the Original was by his grandfather, a diligent student of the Law, the Prophets, and the other national books (a phrase which represents the Rabbinical TNK, i. Various ways have been devised of reconciling the dates of the Original and the translation, which according to this would be separated by about 150 years, though the translator was the grandson of the author; probably the solution is to be found in the great uncertainty which attaches to the list of the high priests, as may be seen from the works of those who have endeavoured to restore it (e. Thus a portion of the prophecies is called the Remonstrances (48:10), of which we recognize the Original in התוכתות similarly used in Jerus. ...
Since the aphorisms are very largely counsels of prudence, rules of conduct and behaviour, or observations on ‘things in general,’ even where they are not reproductions of OT verses, they contain little that is Original or distinctive; man in all known societies has developed largely the same characteristics, which therefore have been noticed by observers in very different countries and periods
Peter - His Original name was "Simon" or "Simeon
Chariot - The Original home of the chariot was Western Asia, from which it passed to Egypt and other countries. They were doubtless dedicated Originally to J″ Litany of Loreto - ...
Queen conceived without Original sin, pray for us
Sardis - As time advanced, extension was necessary, and a lower city was built on the west and north sides of the Original city, near the little river Pactolus, and probably also on the east side
Bethel - More altars, besides the Original one were erected
Speak - (9) In Galatians 4:15 , there is no verb in the Original for the AV, "ye spake of" (see RV)

Beersheba - The series of events recalls to Isaac's mind the Original name and that which gave rise to the name; so he restores both the well itself and the name
Babylon, Kingdom of - Among its chief cities may be mentioned Ur (now Mugheir or Mugayyar), on the western bank of the Euphrates; Uruk, or Erech (Genesis 10:10 ) (now Warka), between Ur and Babylon; Larsa (now Senkereh), the Ellasar of Genesis 14:1 , a little to the east of Erech; Nipur (now Niffer), south-east of Babylon; Sepharvaim (2 Kings 17:24 ), "the two Sipparas" (now Abu-Habba), considerably to the north of Babylon; and Eridu, "the good city" (now Abu-Shahrein), which lay Originally on the shore of the Persian Gulf, but is now, owing to the silting up of the sand, about 100 miles distant from it. They were the Original home of the Kalda, or Chaldeans
Peace - In the Original languages of the Bible, the word ‘peace’ had a meaning far wider and richer than that which people commonly associate with the word today
Sanctification - The connection between sanctification and holiness is clearer in the Original languages of the Bible than in the English of today
Tongues - The speaking in tongues was a striking outward and visible demonstration that the people concerned had received the Holy Spirit and were introduced into the church the same as the Original disciples were on the Day of Pentecost
Nebo - Whether either form exactly corresponds to the Original name is uncertain
Loreto, Litany of - ...
Queen conceived without Original sin, pray for us
Thebes - The approach to Karnak from the south is marked by a series of majestic gateways and towers, which were the appendages of later times to the Original structure
Unrighteousness - He cannot, however, be legitimately claimed as supporting the view that this unrighteousness is the sequel of a lapse from an ‘original righteousness’ in which the ‘first parents’ of mankind were created (cf
Diana - Her Original temple founded 580 B

Earthquake - In LXX Septuagint σεισμός (or συνσεισμος) is employed to render רִעִשׁ of the Original
Generation - ...
Originally רד must have meant the period defined by the life of a man or of a family (Job 42:16). In the sense of (c) it is found only in Matthew 1:17 and apparently never in its Original sense (a)
Predestination - The verb predestinate is of Latin Original (praedestino, ) and signifies in that tongue to deliberate before-hand with one's self how one shall act, and, in consequence of such deliberation, to constitute, fore-ordain, and predetermine, where, when, how, and by whom any thing shall be done, and to what end it shall be done
Magistrate - The word ‘magistrates’ in the NT is as a rule a translation either of the abstract word αἱ ἀρχαί (literally ‘the authorities’), as in Luke 12:11, Acts 17:6-857 or of the cognate word, Originally a participle, οἱ ἄρχοντες. below), the Original name of the consuls at Rome, e

Atticus, Archbaptist of Constantinople - 14, 407) removed the Original ground of the schism
Choice - It would be an advantage to accurate Christian thought if the rendering ‘elect’ were eliminated from the NT, and were replaced by ‘chosen’ or ‘select,’ although it is a direct derivative of the Original
Deliverer - Once (Acts 7:35) the Original word is ὁ λυτρωτής and once (Romans 11:26) it is ὁ ῥυόμενος
Condemnation - The reason is that the process of degeneration, which had begun before the translation of the Authorized Version , linked up the term with conceptions of finality and eternity, Originally alien to it, and thus made it no longer representative of apostolical thought. In Romans 5:16; Romans 5:18 condemnation is the consequence of an Original act of evil, and suggests the antithesis of a single act of righteousness, the effects of which overflow to the potential justification of all men; and the freedom from condemnation continues beyond the initial stage of forgiveness and ripens into all the assured experiences of union with Christ (Romans 8:1)
Cerinthus - 32), ‘confesses not’ in 1 John 4:3 was substituted for an Original ‘dissolves’ or ‘disrupts’ (λύει, so Vulgate solvit)
Masora - ...
The text of the sacred books, it is to be observed, was Originally written without any breaks or divisions into chapters or verses, or even into words: so that a whole book, in the ancient manner, was but one continued word: of this kind we have still several ancient manuscripts, both Greek and Latin. In regard, therefore, the sacred writings had undergone an infinite number of alterations; whence various readings had arisen, and the Original was become much mangled and disguised, the Jews had recourse to a canon, which they judged infallible, to fix and ascertain the reading of the Hebrew text; and this rule they call masora; "tradition, " from tradit, as if this critique were nothing but a tradition which they had received from their forefathers
Apparition - ’ There is always connected with this term the idea of a startling or unexpected appearance, which seems also associated with the Original φάντασμα

Japheth - ...
Japheth signifies enlargement; and how wonderfully did Providence enlarge the boundaries of Japheth! His posterity diverged eastward and westward; from the Original settlement in Armenia, through the whole extent of Asia, north of the great range of Taurus, distinguished by the general names of Tartary and Siberia, as far as the Eastern Ocean: and in process of time, by an easy passage across Behring's straits, the entire continent of America; and they spread in the opposite direction, throughout the whole of Europe, to the Atlantic Ocean; thus literally encompassing the earth, within the precincts of the northern temperate zone, while the enterprising and warlike genius of this hardy hunter race frequently led them to encroach on the settlements, and to dwell in "the tents of Shem," whose pastoral occupations rendered them more inactive, peaceable, and unwarlike; as when the Scythians invaded Media, and overran western Asia southwards, as far as Egypt, in the days of Cyaxares; and when the Greeks, and afterward the Romans, subdued the Assyrians, Medes, and Persians, in the east, and the Scythians and Jews in the south, as foretold by the Assyrian Prophet Balaam:...

Idumea - The name given by the Greeks to the land of Edom, or mount Seir, which extended Originally from the Dead sea to the Elanitic gulf of the Red sea, including a territory about on hundred miles long, and fifteen or twenty wide. ...

Baptism With the Spirit - They then received the Holy Spirit, as the Original disciples had on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 19:1-7)
Zechariah, Book of - They are generally regarded as anonymous prophecies which became attached to the Original book, and are often spoken of as Deutero-Zechariah. There follows the symbolic act of crowning Joshua (more probably, in the Original text, Zerubbabel). With glorious promises for the peace and prosperity of Jerusalem, with the nations coming to seek Jehovah, the Original Book of Zechariah closes
Dominicans - The Franciscans maintained that the Virgin Mary was born without the blemish of Original sin; the Dominicans asserted the contrary. In this and some subsequent scenes (the detail of whose enormities, for the sake of brevity, we shall here omit) the impostor talked much to Jetzer of the Dominican order, which he said was peculiarly dear to the Blessed Virgin: he added, that the Virgin knew herself to be conceived in Original sin; that the doctors who taught the contrary were in purgatory; that the Blessed Virgin abhorred the Franciscans for making her equal with her Son; and that the town of Bern would be destroyed for harbouring such plagues within her walls. The Virgin, thus equipped, addressed a long discourse to Jetzer, in which, among other things, she told him that she was conceived in Original sin, though she had remained but a short time under that blemish
Evangelist (2) - It is obvious at once that Eusebius had two senses of the word before him; that he knew that its Original import was a preacher of the gospel, but that this meaning had been largely displaced by another, that of a writer of a Gospel. Accordingly the references of Eusebius to the Original force of the term are all associated with the earlier history of the Church. Further, it is difficult on this hypothesis to explain the fact that the Original signification of ‘evangelist’ as a preacher was current long after the Gospels had obtained the fullest recognition within the Church
Inspiration - It is the Original Scriptures whose words have inspired authority, not the subsequent copies or versions. ) Moreover God has preserved by human means a multitude of manuscripts, patristic quotations, and ancient versions, enabling us to restore the Original text almost perfectly for all practical purposes. While some passages affecting vital doctrines are on examination rejected as not in the Original, the doctrines themselves stand firm as ever, because they rest on the agreeing testimony of the whole of God's word; in other passages the orthodox truths are confirmed more fully by restoring the Original text
Vine, Allegory of the - It has been suggested that the allegory of the vine may have been Originally a parable which John has worked up into its present form. Weiss believes he can find the Original elements in John 15:2; John 15:4; John 15:6, and thinks that it had taught that, as the husbandman does all in his power to make the vine productive, but if his efforts are in vain casts forth the worthless branches and burns them up, so God’s purpose in the planting of the Kingdom of God in Israel had been to increase the fruitfulness of its members, and if that purpose is not fulfilled the only result will be the exclusion of Israel from the Kingdom. But the Evangelist, who ever puts the personal relation to Christ in the foreground, made this abiding in Christ as the condition of fruitfulness in the religious life the central thought, though in John 15:2; John 15:6 the Original tendency of the parable is still apparent (in Meyer’s Kommentar, 1893, ad loc. Jülicher thinks that Weiss is influenced by a desire to make John approach as closely as possible to the Synoptists; and while he does not believe the allegory as preserved by John to be genuine, confesses himself unable to conjecture what its Original form was, supposing it to be based upon authentic reminiscences (Die Gleichnisreden Jesu, 1888, pp. The latter thinks that the allegory in its Original parabolic form, of which the main point was a warning against unfruitfulness, belongs to the period of crisis in the life of Christ, when the multitudes who had been attracted to Him fell away, and He foresaw that even one of the Twelve was to prove unfaithful
Joshua - He is called Hoshea in Deuteronomy 32:44 , Numbers 13:8 ; and in Numbers 13:16 this is represented as his Original name. show that ‘Joshua’ was probably the Original reading. And while it is difficult on any reading of the history to understand why all our sources say nothing about the conquest of Central Palestine, this becomes doubly difficult if Originally this was the scene of Joshua’s first activity and influence. In his work he does not add independent material to his Original, but by his arrangement and omissions gives a new aspect to the account. But the break at this point in the Original source gave occasion to insert Joshua 18:1 here
Alexander, of Alexandria - to the whole Christian episcopate, giving an account of the opinions for which the Egyptian synod had excommunicated the Original Arians, adducing Scriptural texts in refutation, and warning his brethren against the intrigues of Eusebius (Socr. ]'>[3] The Arians were condemned, and the Nicene Creed, in its Original form, was drawn up
Abgar - A church in Genoa makes a rival claim to the possession of the Original handkerchief portrait. ...
Any suspicion that Eusebius fabricated the documents that he professes to translate was set aside by the discovery and publication of what have been accepted as the Original Syriac documents (The Doct
Gods - Princes, magistrates, and great men are called gods in the following passages: "If a slave is desirous to continue with his master, he shall be brought to the judges," Exodus 21:6 , in the Original, to the gods. Again: "If the thief be not found, then the master of the house shall be brought unto the judges," Exodus 22:8 , in the Original, to the gods: and in the twenty-eighth verse of the same chapter, "Thou shalt not speak evil of the gods" that is, of the judges or great men
Josiah - It was in repairing the temple that Moses' copy of the law, in his own handwriting, or at, least the Original temple copy from his, was found. These too all accepted it, evidently because they and he had always recognized its truths generally (as his extirpation of idolatry already implied), but now he and they are brought into immediate contact, as it were, with Moses himself, through the Original temple copy
Only Begotten - The Latin translators were quite right when Originally they rendered the expression υἱὸς μονογενής simply by filius unicus, not by filius unigenitus. ’ In the Original form of the so-called ‘Apostolic Symbol’—the ‘Old Roman Symbol’—we read: καὶ εἰς Χριστὸν Ἰησοῦν τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ τὸν μονογενῆ τὸν κύριον ἡμῶν; and in the Latin text, which in all probability belongs to the same date (i. ’ The present writer, in an exhaustive inquiry into the historical meaning of the Original form of the Apostolic Symbol (see Literature cited at end), has defended the hypothesis that the latter combination is the correct one
Poverty of Spirit - (Luke 6:20) the words τῷ πνεύματι are omitted; and there can be little doubt that this simpler form of the Beatitude is the more Original. is to attach a deeper, moral significance to the Original idea of poverty
Priest - Among the 4289 priests who accompanied Zerubbabel, only four courses were represented, Ezra 2:36-39; Nehemiah 7:39-42, and courses are afterward mentioned which cannot be identified with any of the Original ones
Order of Saint Benedict - This was a deviation from the Original idea of Saint Benedict, who sought the total independence of each abbey
Shewbread - ...
As regards the Original significance of the shewbread offering there can be no doubt. This number had probably an astrological origin, having reference Originally to the twelve months of the year, or the twelve signs of the Zodiac
Ten Commandments - And the record was as exceptional as the Original revelation
Levi - Son of Alphaeus; the Original name of Matthew the publican and afterward the apostle (Mark 2:14; Luke 5:27; Luke 5:29; Matthew 9:9)
Declare, Declaration - ...
(2) In 2 Corinthians 8:19 , "declaration" does not represent any word in the Original
Targum - They help to explain many words and phrases in the Hebrew Original, and they hand down to us many of the ancient customs of the Jews
Kadesh Barnea - Kadesh gradually sank to its Original obscurity as a watering place for the nomads of the desert
Temptation - In the Original languages of the Bible, the words commonly translated ‘temptation’ had a range of meanings
Scriptures - Also, the Original writings were not divided into the chapters and verses that we are familiar with today
Reconciliation - Now as all the legal sacrifices of atonement, and the truly expiatory sacrifices of Christ, were offered not to the offenders, but to God, to reconcile him in them, what can reconciliation by the death, blood, or cross of Christ mean, but that the law and justice of God were thereby satisfied, and all obstructions, on his part, to peace and friendship toward sinners are removed, that he might not pursue his righteous demands upon them, according to the holy resentments of his nature and will, and the threatenings of his law for their sins; but might mercifully forgive them, and take them into a state of favour with himself, upon their receiving the atonement, or reconciliation (Romans 5:11 , ) by faith, after the offence that sin had given him, and the breach it had made upon the Original friendship between him and them?" ...
Tabernacle - ...
The Original “tent of meeting” was a provisional edifice where God met with His people (Exodus 33:7-11 ; Exodus 34:34-35 )
Desert - It could be described like the Original chaos prior to creation (Deuteronomy 32:10 ; Jeremiah 4:23-26 )
Benedictine Order - This was a deviation from the Original idea of Saint Benedict, who sought the total independence of each abbey
Benedictines - This was a deviation from the Original idea of Saint Benedict, who sought the total independence of each abbey
Magnificat - There is fairly general agreement among critics that the Original text must have been simply ‘and she said,’ so that both ‘Mary’ and ‘Elisabeth’ should be regarded as glosses
Mark (John) - Paul, and was his ‘fellow-worker’ and a ‘comfort’ to him ( Colossians 4:11 , Philippians 1:24 ), and useful to him ‘for ministering’ ( 2 Timothy 4:11 ) this was Mark’s special office, not to be an Original organizer but a useful assistant (Swete)
Redeem, Redemption, Redeemer - The Original owner could regain ownership by paying a redemption price for it
Undressed Cloth - By the rendering ‘undressed cloth’ Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 brings out the point of the Original, which is quite lost in the colourless ‘new cloth’ of Authorized Version , though suggested by the ‘raw or unwrought’ of AVm Caesarea - The city, however, was so ruined that when restored it covered only one-tenth of the Original ground
Mind - The participle ‘minded’ is met with in the Authorized Version in a number of phrases-‘likeminded’ (Romans 15:5, Philippians 2:2), ‘feeble-minded’ (1 Thessalonians 5:14), ‘doubleminded’ (James 1:8; James 4:8), ‘highminded’ (Romans 11:20, 1 Timothy 6:17, 2 Timothy 3:4), ‘soberminded’ (Titus 2:6), which are represented in the Original by various verbs and adjectives
Guide - As a verb, ‘guide’ in Authorized Version of Gospels represents two different words in the Original
Shepherd - 196) of spiritual rulers as shepherds rests on the Original Jewish Didascalia (preserved in the so-called Apostolic Constitutions, ii

Brazen Exodus 27:1-2 (c) This may be taken as a type of the cross of Calvary, where the Lamb of GOD was offered as a sacrifice for Original sin, and a sacrifice for sins committed, and also as a sacrifice for our own wicked selves
Abomination, Abomination of Desolation - The Original passage in Daniel serves as the textual and historical presaging for later applications
Ark - is an embellishment upon Exodus 16:33) and Aaron’s rod that budded, which in the Original narratives were laid up before the Lord (ἐναντίον τοῦ θεοῦ, Exodus 16:33; ἐνώπιον τῶν μαρτυρίων, Numbers 17:10) are supposed by the writer of Hebrews to have been within the ark
Impute - The Original debtor, and the Surety, who pays for that debtor, cannot both have the debt at the same time charged, upon them
Hardness of Heart - (Acts 28:27) And is there the least contradiction in the account? Most certainly not; the very Original passage in the prophet explains itself
Caesarius, Bishop of Chrysostom - We only possess it in a Latin translation, though a few fragments of the Greek Original are found in Anastasius and John Damascene and elsewhere
Alpha And Omega - To those who believe in a Jewish Original for the NT Apocalypse, its presence there will cause no surprise, and its application to Christ will constitute an instance of the Christian remodelling which that book has undergone
Nestorians - Now of these two hypostases it is added, they had only one barsopa, the Original term used by Nestorius, and usually translated by the Greeks, "person;" but to avoid the appearance of an express contradiction, Dr
Apocrypha - The word Apocrypha is of Greek origin, and is either derived from the words απο της κρυπτης , because the books in question were removed from the crypt, chest, ark, or other receptacle in which the sacred books were deposited whose authority was never doubted, or more probably from the verb αποκρυπτω , to hide or conceal, because they were concealed from the generality of readers, their authority not being recognised by the church, and because they are books which are destitute of proper testimonials, their Original being obscure, their authors unknown, and their character either heretical or suspected
Canticles - The sacred writers were, by God's condescension, authorized to illustrate his strict and intimate relation to the church, by the figure of a marriage; and the emblem must have been strikingly becoming and expressive to the conceptions of the Jews, since they annexed ideas of peculiar mystery to this appointment, and imagined the marriage union to be a counterpart representation of some Original pattern in heaven
Need, Needs, Needful - , Matthew 3:14 ; 6:8 ; 9:12 , RV, "(have no) need," AV, "need (not)," the RV adheres to the noun form; so in Matthew 14:16 ; Mark 14:63 ; Luke 5:31 ; 22:7 ; Ephesians 4:28 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:9 ; in the following, however, both RV and AV use the verb form, "to need" (whereas the Original has the verb echo, "to have," with the noun chreia as the object, as in the instances just mentioned): Luke 15:7 ; John 2:25 ; 13:10 ; 16:30 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:8 ; 1 John 2:27 ; Revelation 22:5 ; in all these the verb "to have" could well have been expressed in the translation
Ark - It is observable that the "window" which Noah is said to have opened, Genesis 8:6, is not in the Original the same word with that occurring in 6:16
Rest - resto, if the latter is a compound of re and sto but is an Original word
Nicopolis - On this hypothesis, the letter to Titus, in its Original, comparatively brief form, must have been written before St
Flesh - The Original sinful human nature remains with them till the end of their present earthly existence, but through Christ they are now free from its power (Romans 6:14; Romans 6:18; Romans 8:1-2; Romans 8:10-12; see JUSTIFICATION)
Psalms, Theology of - Most biblical scholars concede that psalm titles in general, and these links with the Davidic narratives in 1,2Samuel in particular, are not to be attributed to the Original authors but probably to postexilic Jewish editors and interpreters. Furthermore, an analysis of the Original Hebrew and subsequent daughter versions of Psalms reveals that the titles were subject to variation and expansion during the course of their transmission in postexilic times and beyond, in contrast to the poems themselves whose text remained relatively constant. This evidence does, however, highlight the fact that psalm titles cannot be relied upon to elucidate the Original context and meaning of biblical psalms. One is that such expressions were uttered after deliverance had been experienced but that they were joined to the Original complaint when these psalms were compiled in their present form. This fact raises hermeneutical queries with regard to both the intentions of the Original Hebrew poets and the uses to which the New Testament puts the passages in question. This is readily observable when one compares the same passages in their Original and secondary contexts
Fall - Tennant, The Fall and Original Sin, 1903, p. ’ But such a view does not seem to have been universal, for Edersheim says expressly of the teaching of the Talmud: ‘So far as their opinions can be gathered from their writings, the great doctrines of Original Sin, and of the sinfulness of our whole nature, were not held by the ancient Rabbis’ (LT Augustine - Concerning Original sin, he maintained that it was derived from our first parents; and he believed he had ascertained in what the Original sin conveyed by Adam to his posterity consisted. In his sentiments, however, upon the latter point he was rather inconsistent, at one time asserting that the essence of Original sin was concupiscence, and at another expressing doubts respecting his own position. ]'>[7] Consider that if you will aver, that baptism washes away otherwise than sacramentally, that is, obsignatorily, Original sin; yet you must allow that manner of washing for future actual sins; and you must make two sorts of justification, one for children, another for adulti; [8] and (which passes all the rest) you must find some promise in God's covenant wherein he binds himself to wash away sin without faith or repentance. Augustine frequently compared his copies of the Latin version with those of the Greek Original. In this he besought him, in the name of all the African churches, to apply himself to the translation into Latin of the Greek interpreters of Scripture, rather than to enter upon a new translation from the Original Hebrew; and to point out those passages in which the Hebrew differed from the Septuagint, as he had previously done in the book of Job
Creation - Though bara' extends to other acts of God besides the Original creation, it is only in a secondary application, without reference to preexisting materials; still, except in the Original creation, they are not excluded. God ordered His own work on a system of law, and from time to time supplied new forces, or gave new directions to existing forces; not that He changed His design, or found His Original plan defective. 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. of the Lawrence; the lower laurentian has been displaced from its Original horizontal position before the upper was deposited above it
Manicheans - From Zoroastrism he took his Dualism, which consisted of two independent principles absolutely opposed to each other, with their opposite creations: on the one side God (Ahura-Mazda), the Original good from whom nothing but good can proceed; on the other side Original evil (Angro-Mainyus), whose essence is wild, self-conflicting tumult, matter, darkness, a world full of smoke and vapour. This is man as he is now, shaped after the image of the primitive man with whom they Originally waged war. In both systems asceticism was the practical result of the opposition between matter and spirit; the more matter could be crushed, the nearer the spirit came to its Original source (cf. During their persecution upon the death of Manes, they fled into Transoxania, whence they maintained a constant communication with Babylon, their Original seat, as the head of the sect always remained there till the Mohammedan invasion
Bible, Texts And Versions - Basic problems in using a translation to seek to study the earlier wording of the Hebrew text are: the difficulty of determining the exact readings of the Hebrew text(s) used by the Original translators because of the innate differences in all languages, the difficulties in establishing the Original readings of the Greek translation by studying the many manuscripts of it, and uncertainty concerning the quality of the translation itself. The Original papyrus manuscripts contained only portions of the New Testament, such as the Gospels and Acts or Paul's letters or the Revelation or some or all of the General Epistles
Adam (1) - Original records are perhaps traceable as employed in the inspired record of Moses. Trench remarks: "The whole history of man, not only in his Original creation, but also in his after restoration and reconstitution in the Son, is significantly wrapped up in this double statement; which is double for this very cause, that the divine mind did not stop at the contemplation of his first creation but looked on to him as renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him (Colossians 3:10); because it knew that only as partaker of this double benefit would he attain the true end for which he was made. Christ came to reveal not only God, but MAN to us; He alone is therefore called "THE Son of man"; the common property of mankind; who alone realizes the Original ideal of man: body, soul, and spirit, in the image and likeness of God, the body subordinate to the animal and intellectual soul, and the soul to the spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:23), combining at once the man and woman (Galatians 3:28); and in whom believers shall realize it by vital union with Him: having the masculine graces, majesty, power, wisdom, strength, courage, with all woman's purity, intuitive tact, meekness, gentleness, sympathetic tenderness and love, such as Roman Catholics have pictured in the Virgin Mary
Abraham - There he received a confirmation of the promise, specifying "this land" as that which the Original more general promise pointed to. Babylon was Originally the predominant power; but a recently deciphered Assyrian record states that an Elamitie king, Kudur Nakhunta, conquered Babylon 2296 B. His faith was rewarded by the Original promises being now confirmed by Jehovah's oath by Himself (Hebrews 6:13; Hebrews 6:17); and his believing reply to his son, "God will provide Himself a lamb," received its lasting commemoration in the name of that place, Jehovah Jireh, "the Lord will provide. ...
His care that he and his should be utterly separated from idolatry appears in his strict charge to Eliezer as to the choice of Isaac's wife, not to take a Canaanite woman nor yet to bring his son back to Abraham's Original home
Biblical Criticism - " Textual criticism is made necessary because the Original manuscripts of the sacred writers have not been preserved and the earliest copies of them exhibit many different readings. ...
METHODS In his endeavors to restore the Original text, the textual critic collects and compares the various readings found in the extant copies of the book, in translations, and in quotations from it by early writers
Fall - These coincidences are sufficiently striking to suggest the inference that a mythical account of man’s Original condition and his fall existed in Babylonia, and had obtained wide currency in the East. It is a reasonable conjecture that such a legend, ‘stripped of its primitive polytheism, and retaining only faint traces of what was probably its Original mythological character, formed the material setting which was adapted by the [2] narrator for the purpose of exhibiting, under a striking and vivid imaginative form, the deep spiritual truths which he was inspired to discern’ (Driver). Man, as Originally created, was exempt from them; and to the question, Whence came they? the answer is that they are the effect of a Divine curse to which the race is subject; though it is to be noted that no curse is pronounced on the first pair, but only on the serpent as the organ of temptation, and the ground which is cursed for man’s sake
Animal - That it is a mistake to suppose, that the declaration of Moses to the Jews, that God had "given them the blood for an atonement," is an additional reason for the interdict, not to be found in the Original prohibition to Noah. Now, by turning to the Original prohibition of Genesis, we find that precisely the same reason is given: "But the flesh with the blood, which is the life thereof, shall ye not eat
Assyria - The name derived from the city Asshur on the Tigris, the Original capital of the country, was Originally a colony from Babylonia, and was ruled by viceroys from that kingdom
Nazareth - After His birth and the sojourn in Egypt Joseph and Mary took the child to their Original home in Nazareth, six miles W
Redemption - (The words ‘redeem’ and ‘ransom’ are related to the same root in the Original languages
Soul - There is some variety also in the usages of the Original words from which ‘soul’ has been translated
Catholic Epistles - 36) and the Original ‘Euthalius’ (ed
Martin Luther - A violent reaction resulted; after having placed undue reliance on his efforts towards justification and confused concupiscence with Original sin, he declared that man was hopelessly corrupt and that all his works, even those done from charitable or pious motives, were grave sins; that he could be saved by faith alone, in virtue of which God clad him as with the mantle of Christ's merits and concealed but did not blot out sin
Luther, Martin - A violent reaction resulted; after having placed undue reliance on his efforts towards justification and confused concupiscence with Original sin, he declared that man was hopelessly corrupt and that all his works, even those done from charitable or pious motives, were grave sins; that he could be saved by faith alone, in virtue of which God clad him as with the mantle of Christ's merits and concealed but did not blot out sin
Nag Hammadi - While the documents are written in the Coptic language, an ancient language of Egypt, they are probably translations of Greek Originals. While there is debate as to the dates of the Original texts, some were probably written before A
Isaac - Apparent discrepancies in the story, such as that Isaac, on his deathbed ( Genesis 27:1 ; Genesis 27:41 ), blessed Jacob, and yet did not die until many years afterwards ( Genesis 35:27 ), are evidently due to Original differences of tradition, which later editors were not careful to remove
Fruit - In his Original creation God commanded the land to produce "vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds" (Genesis 1:11 )
Adultery - The junction of the two into one flesh when sexual intercourse takes place with a third is dissolved in its Original idea
Isaiah - ...
With regard to the Original Messianic import of the passages applied in the Gospels to Jesus Christ and His work, there is no difficulty in those cases where the ‘Servant of Jehovah’ is identified with the Messiah
Amalekites - Arab writers represent them as sprung from Ham, and Originally at the Persian gulf, and then pressed westward by Assyria, and spreading over Arabia before its occupation by Joktan's descendants. The execution was delayed; but the Original sentence at Rephidim was repeated by Balaam, and 400 years subsequently its execution was enjoined at the very beginning of the regal government as a test of obedience; compare 1 Samuel 12:12-15
Godliness - In the Original Paulinism the supreme stress lies on the religious relation to God, and the central idea is that of justification by faith; while the ethical note is struck only in the second place, and in connexion with the peculiar Pauline mysticism
A - In some words of Greek Original, a is privative, giving to them a negative sense, as in anonymous
Marriage - From the whole of which taken together, I think it is very plain, not only of the Original design from the beginning, that every woman should have her own husband, and, every husband his own wife, but also that the married state was intended, in the most dear and tender manner, to set forth and display Christ's union with his church
Genesis, Book of - The creation is the first thing recorded; both the Original creating out of nothing, and the ordering of the earth for man
Mediator - It was fit that he should be a holy and righteous man, free from all sin, Original and actual, that he might offer himself without spot to God, take away the sins of men, and be an advocate for them, Hebrews 7:26 ; Hebrews 9:14
Fall - How precious the thought! So then, our present fallen state is not the Original state of man, neither is it the final state
Turtle - Every one, that knows the Original, knows that the words are (osei peristeran), which is, as the words are rendered in our Testament, like a dove; but if it had been meant to say, that the Holy Ghost came down in the shape and form of a dove, the words ought to have been, osei peristeras
Sojourn, Dwell - In the land of Canaan the possession of land was limited to members or descendants of the Original tribal members
Catharine, Martyr of Alexandria - Catharine, with its Latin Original from the Cotton MSS
Dionysius (19), Monk in Western Church - His performances were not Original discoveries, but improvements on those of others. His own was a corrected edition of that earlier version, so far as regards the canons of Nicaea, Ancyra, Neo-Caesarea, Gangra, Antioch, Laodicea, and Constantinople—165 in all—together with 27 of Chalcedon: all Originally published in Greek, and all, except the Laodicean, already translated in the Prisca Versio
Fathers - Parr, his erudite biographer, will convey his sentiments on this very interesting subject: "Indeed he had so great an esteem of the ANCIENT AUTHORS, for the acquiring any solid learning, whether sacred or profane, that his advice to young students, either in divinity or antiquity, was, not to spend too much time in epitomes, but to set themselves to read the ancient authors themselves; as, to begin with the FATHERS, and to read them according to the ages in which they lived, (which was the method he had taken himself,) and, together with them, carefully to peruse the CHURCH HISTORIANS that treated of that age in which those fathers lived: by which means the student would be better able to perceive the reason and meaning of divers passages in their writings, (which otherwise would be obscure,) when he knew the Original and growth of those heresies and heterodox opinions against which they wrote, and may also better judge what doctrines, ceremonies, and opinions prevailed in the church in every age, and by what means introduced
Judge - 1), is used (a) of God, Hebrews 12:23 , where the order in the Original is "to a Judge who is God of all;" this is really the significance; it suggests that He who is the Judge of His people is at the same time their God; that is the order in Hebrews 10:30 ; the word is also used of God in James 4:12 , RV; (b) of Christ, Acts 10:42 ; 2 Timothy 4:8 ; James 5:9 ; (c) of a ruler in Israel in the times of the Judges, Acts 13:20 ; (d) of a Roman procurator, Acts 24:10 ; (e) of those whose conduct provides a standard of "judging," Matthew 12:27 ; Luke 11:19 ; (f) in the forensic sense, of one who tries and decides a case, Matthew 5:25 (twice); Luke 12:14 (some mss
Sacrament - is generally regarded by theologians as a sacrament, instituted by God to remit Original sin; in an infant this was effected by the faith of the parents in the promised Redeemer; in an adult by the faith of the recipient
Germany - As a result of the World War there has been a tendency to return to the Catholic Church, for the fall of the empire left Protestantism with no official head; many religious orders and congregations evicted under the imperial regime are returning, some to their Original property
Ara'Bia - (desert, barren ), a country known in the Old Testament under two designations:--
The East Country , ( Genesis 25:6 ) or perhaps the East, ((Genesis 10:30 ; Numbers 23:7 ; Isaiah 2:6 ) and Land of the Sons of the East , ( Genesis 29:1 ) Gentile name, Sons of the East , ( Judges 6:3 ; 7:12 ; 1 Kings 4:30 ; Job 1:3 ; Isaiah 11:14 ; Jeremiah 49:28 ; Ezekiel 25:4 ) From these passages it appears that Land of the East and Sons of the East indicate, primarily, the country east of Palestine, and the tribes descended from Ishmael and from Keturah; and that this Original signification may have become gradually extended to Arabia and its inhabitants generally, though without any strict limitation
Zedeki'ah - 2 Kings 23:31 His Original name was Mattaniah, which was changed to Zedekiah by Nebuchadnezzar when he carried off his nephew Jehoiachim to Babylon and left him on the throne of Jerusalem
Pen'Tateuch, the, - " This title is derived from "pente",five, and "teucos") which, meaning Originally "vessel" "instrument," etc. He had observed that throughout the book of Genesis, and as far as the 6th chapter of Exodus, traces were to be found of two Original documents, each characterized by a distinct use of the names of God; the one by the name Elohim, and the other by the name Jehovah
Angels - ...
Good and bad angels...
At some time before the creation of humans, some of the angels, under the leadership of one who became known as Satan, rebelled against God and so fell from their Original sinless state (2 Peter 2:4; Judges 1:6)
Isaiah - ...
With regard to the Original Messianic import of the passages applied in the Gospels to Jesus Christ and His work, there is no difficulty in those cases where the ‘Servant of Jehovah’ is identified with the Messiah
Masona, Bishop of Merida - If it was a duly summoned national council, the Acts were purposely or accidentally omitted from the Original redaction of the Spanish Codex Canonum made within the first 40 years of 7th cent
Polychronius, Bishop of Apamea - Daniel and the Greek additions, refusing to comment upon the Song of the Three Children as not being in the Original
Prochorus, a Deacon - Though the writer makes some use of the Gnostic Acts, he can hardly have known them in their Original text
Judges (1) - It may well be questioned whether the title of this book was Originally ‘Judges,’ for it is difficult to see where the difference lies, fundamentally, between the ‘judges’ on the one hand, and Joshua and Saul on the other; in the case of each the main and central duty is to act as leader against the foes of certain tribes. This section ( 1:1 2:5) serves as a kind of Introduction to the book, and certainly cannot have belonged Originally to it; ‘the whole character of Judges 1:1 to Judges 6:1-105 gives evidence that it was not composed for the place, but is an extract from an older history of the Israelite occupation of Canaan’ (Moore, p. The chapters contain two distinct narratives, and are, in their Original form, very ancient; in each narrative there occurs twice the redactional note, ‘In those days there was no king in Israel’ ( Judges 9:42-457 , Judges 18:1 , Judges 19:1 , Judges 21:25 ), showing that the period of the Judges is implied. ’ Although these chapters have been very considerably worked over by later hands, it is probable that they have some basis in fact; it is difficult to account for their existence at all on any other hypothesis, for in themselves they are quite purposeless; there cannot Originally have been any object in writing such a gruesome tale, other than that of recording something that actually happened. It is therefore clear that there must have existed among the various Israelite tribes a body of traditional matter regarding the deeds of tribal heroes which Originally floated about orally within the circumscribed area of each particular tribe. In the first place, there must have taken place at some time or other a collection of these ancient records which belonged Originally to different tribes; one may confidently assume that a collection of this kind would have been put together from written materials; these materials would naturally have been of varying value, so that the collector would have felt himself perfectly justified in discriminating between what he had before him; some records he would retain, others he would discard; and if he found two accounts of some tradition which he considered important, he would incorporate both. In this way there would have arisen the immediate antecedent to the Book of Judges in its Original form . in their Original form they were the immediate antecedents of our present accounts in Judges 4:4 ff; Judges 5:1 ff. ...
(3) We may assume, then, as reasonably certain, the existence of a body of traditional matter which had been compiled from different sources; this compilation represents our Book of Judges in its Original form; it is aptly termed by many scholars the pre-Deuteronomic collection of the histories of the Judges. 6 8, which combine two accounts of the history of Gideon, have a strong historical basis; they contain much ancient matter, but even in their Original forms there were assuredly some portions which cannot be regarded as historical, e
Gospels (2) - Discussion of the evidence from Papias as to an Original Hebrew Gospel. Other considerations hearing on an Original Hebrew Gospel. As far as the Original witnesses were concerned, their memory would enable them to tell all that was necessary of the Saviour’s life, even as much as is contained in the longest of our present Gospels. But as the number of evangelists who had not ‘known Christ after the flesh’ multiplied in every direction, it would very soon become impossible for the Original witnesses even to instruct all those who were to teach others. It is natural to suppose that at first such narratives were used to refresh the memory of the evangelists; afterwards, when the first generation of believers had quite passed away, the written Gospels would be openly read, as being the most authentic account of what the Original witnesses had seen and heard
Beatitude - It is therefore suggestive that the Christian conception of beatitude should find expression in a word closely associated with descriptions of the blessedness of the gods and ‘originally stronger and more ideal than εὐδαίμων. ’ But the non-occurrence of a saying in Luke is no proof that it is ‘secondary,’ unless it is certain that Luke is more primitive, and not a selection from the more Original tradition in Matthew. Abbott thinks ‘it is more probable that Luke represents the letter of the Original words of Jesus more closely than Matthew, however much the latter may better represent the spirit of them’ (Enc. ’ The Beatitudes peculiar to Matthew are not relegated to an editor, but are held to be the true teaching of our Lord, though probably not in their Original context. On the authority of one who probably heard these words of Blessing, the Beatitudes peculiar to Matthew are regarded not only as authentic sayings of Jesus, but also as parts of the Original discourse. On either supposition, Luke, ‘while faithfully reproducing at least a part of our Lord’s teaching on the hill,’ may state that teaching ‘not in its Original setting, but readapted so as to serve the practical purpose of Christian instruction’ (The Expositor’s Greek Test
Obadiah, Book of - ...
The prediction (Obadiah 1:15-21 ) scarcely appears to be the Original and immediate continuation of the former part of the chapter, but is, like Obadiah 1:8-9 , a subsequent addition. It is admitted by all that the resemblances between Obadiah 1:1-5 ; Obadiah 1:5 ; Obadiah 1:8 and Jeremiah 49:14-15 ; Jeremiah 49:9-10 a, Jeremiah 49:7 are so close as to imply the literary dependence of one of the two passages on the other; it is further admitted by most, and should be admitted, that the common matter is in its more Original form in Obadiah, and that therefore so much at least of Obadiah is prior to Jeremiah 49:14-16 ; Jeremiah 49:9-10 a, Jeremiah 49:7 , and therefore prior to the year b
Pass'Over, - --As the Original institution of the Passover in Egypt preceded the establishment of the priesthood and the regulation of the service of the tabernacle. (Leviticus 23:10 ) In the latter notices of the festival in the books of the law there are particulars added which appear as modifications of the Original institution
Bible - These, and similar appellations, are derived from the divine Original and authority of the Bible. ) The first canon or catalogue of the sacred books was made by the Jews; but the Original author of it is not satisfactorily ascertained. The Original of the Pentateuch had been carefully preserved in the side of the ark, and had been probably introduced with the ark into the temple at Jerusalem. The law, after being so long concealed, would be unknown almost to all the Jews; and thus the solemn reading of it by Josiah would awaken his own and the people's earnest attention; more especially, as the copy produced was probably the Original written by Moses. From this time copies of the law were extensively multiplied among the people; and though, within a few years, the autograph, or Original copy of the law, was burnt with the city and temple by the Babylonians, yet many copies of the law and the prophets, and of all the other sacred writings, were circulated in the hands of private persons, who carried them with them into their captivity. The alterations which any one attempted to make would have been soon perceived; just even as now, in fact, lesser faults in some copies are amended by comparing ancient copies or those of the Original
Law - Deuteronomy is an inspired free repetition of the Original in Exodus, suited to Moses' purpose of exhortation; hence he refers to the Original, in the fifth commandment adding "as the Lord thy God commanded thee. The sacrificial part (3) taught the hope of propitiation, and thus represented the Original covenant of promise, and pointed on to Messiah, through whom the sense of guilt, awakened by the moral law which only condemns men through their own inability to keep it, is taken away, and peace with God is realized
Law - The Year of Jubilee regulations, requiring the return of property to Original families every forty-nine years, seem never to have been enforced as law because (among other reasons) by the time Israel controlled the land, there were no records of the Original owners. Likewise, the principle of establishing truth by two or three witnesses (Deuteronomy 19:15 ), Originally limited to courts, is applied more broadly to a church conference (2 Corinthians 13:1 ). Paul maintains the law's moral principle, yet in view of the changed redemptive setting, makes no attempt to apply the law's Original sanction
Advent (2) - This blighter outlook for fallen humanity was confirmed by the assurance given to Abraham that in the line of his descendants the Original promise was destined to be fulfilled (Genesis 12:2-3),—an assurance which was further strengthened when, under Moses, Israel was formed into a nation and entered at Sinai into covenant with Jehovah as His chosen people (Exodus 20-24). Scribes and Pharisees on the one hand, and Sadducees on the other, stood in mutual antagonism, striving for ascendency as leaders of national religious feeling,—the scribes and Pharisees combining to enforce the mass of stringent precepts which the former had elaborated to supplement the Original written word; the Sadducees entirely rejecting those precepts, and contending that the Law as written was sufficient, and that the observance of the temple ordinances, its worship and sacrifices, was the central element in religion. The day at last had dawned to which the Original promise to fallen humanity pointed forward, and for which the best minds of the nation had for ages yearned; the divinely-pledged Deliverer from sin and its curse had arrived, to set up the kingdom of righteousness, love, and peace
Joannes, Bishop of Ephesus - With these drawbacks, the work possesses special interest as an Original account. 1853)—a splendid reproduction of the Original—and translated into English by Dr. These versions are of great assistance, many chapters being defective in the Original
Passover (ii. in Relation to Lord's Supper). - , presumably the most Original of all? It is suggestive that Spitta solves the difficulty by pronouncing the whole paragraph in which Mk. How, then, are we to explain this entire transformation of what, according to this theory, was the Original tradition—a transformation so early that it must have been completed before Paul became a Christian and received from the first Apostles the story of what took place in the Upper Room on that night in which the Lord Jesus was betrayed? It is hard to see how, within a few years of Christ’s death, and at the headquarters of the primitive Church, there could have grown up a tradition as to a simple matter of fact that was an entire falsification of what the Eleven knew to be the truth. The narrative of Exodus 24:3-8 makes it clear that the Original covenant rested on the fact of a covenant-sacrifice, and there seems little reason to question that in its essence this sacrifice was of a piacular nature (cf
Simon Magus - But since the history, as it has come down to us, leaves much to be desired as an intentional libel on Paul, we must modify the legends so as best to adapt them to this object, and must then believe we have thus recovered the Original form of the legend. Thus, the Homilies represent the final disputation between Peter and Simon to have occurred at Laodicea; but we must believe that the Original form laid it at Antioch, where took place the collision between Peter and Paul (Galatians 2 ). The Clementines represent Simon as going voluntarily to Rome; but the Original must surely have represented him as taken there as a prisoner by the Roman authorities, and so on
Image of God - Every human being is an Original
Interpretation - As the Hebrew tongue ceased to be that of the common people, interpreters were required at the sacred services to translate or explain the Law and the Prophets after the reading of the Original (see W

Mephibosheth - Originally Merib-baal, an ancestor being named Baal (1 Chronicles 8:30; 1 Chronicles 8:33; 1 Chronicles 8:24; 1 Chronicles 9:36). Bearing a name of reproach like Mephibosheth, instead of his name of innocence; banished to the outskirts of the moral wilderness, like Mephibosheth in Lodebar; liable to perish by the sword of justice, as Saul's other sons (2 Samuel 21); paralyzed by Original sin, as Mephibosheth lamed from infancy in both feet; invited by the Lord and Savior, after having spoiled principalities, to sit down at the royal table (Matthew 8:11; Revelation 19:7; Revelation 19:9), as Mephibosheth was by David after conquering all his foes, on the ground of the everlasting covenant (Jeremiah 31:3); as David regarded Mephibosheth because of his covenant with Jonathan (1 Samuel 20:15; 1 Samuel 20:42)
Essenes (2) - For Original information regarding them we are dependent on Josephus (B
Evil - By contrast, the Original creation is very good (Genesis 1:31 )
Baal (1) - Moses subsequently, when warning the people from this example, notices no circumstance of it but one, which, though in the Original narrative not stated, was infinitely the most important to advert to, but which none but spectators of the fact, perfectly acquainted with every individual concerned in it, could possibly feel the truth of
Hilkiah - ...
Still the place where it was found, the temple, and its not having been found before but only brought to light during the repairs, and that by the high priest, identify it with the Original temple copy deposited by Moses' command by the side of the ark within the veil (Deuteronomy 31:9; Deuteronomy 31:26)
Tradition - Whately likened tradition to the Russian game a number sit in a circle, the first reads a short story in the ear of his next neighbour, he repeats it orally to the next, and so on; the last writes it as it, reaches him; the amusement is, when read and compared with the Original story it is found wholly metamorphosed, and hardly recognizable as the same story
Passion - The Original of the passions are from impressions on the senses; from the operations of reason, by which good or evil are foreseen; and form the recollections of memory
Lamp Lampstand - ...
In conclusion, reference may be made to the representation of the seven-branched lampstand on the Arch of Titus, often reproduced, which is probably a copy of the Original (Encyclopaedia Biblica , article ‘Candlestick’); to contemporary Roman practice in lighting (see H
Lily - The Original name in the Jewish Scriptures, is Susan or Schuschan
Regeneration - ...
Now then, as in the first instance, while the soul actuates the body that body is alive, but without; the soul so actuating, the body would be dead; so in the second, unless Christ, who is the life of the soul, actuates the soul by regeneration, that soul continues dead as by Original transgression was induced
Despise - (3) If the connexion with Matthew 18:1-4 is Original, the young are not to be ‘despised,’ because the childlike disposition is the true way to eternal life; the humility which is essential for entering into the Kingdom of heaven has its symbol in the consciousness of weakness and imperfection that belongs to children, who are therefore not to be ‘despised’ but ‘received’ (cf
False Christs - , it probably belongs to the Original text of the eschatological discourse. Either, then, we must suppose that the phrase ‘in my name’ has been inserted by the Evangelists in order to stamp as Christian what was Originally a Jewish prediction, or the phrase must be taken as equivalent to ‘in the name of Messiah,’ as is implied in ‘I am he
Atheist - And yet, these shameful beggars of principles give this precarious account of the Original of things; assume to themselves to be the men of reason, the great wits of the world, the only cautious and wary persons that hate to be imposed upon, that must have convincing evidence for every thing, and can admit of nothing, without a clear demonstration of it" ...
Eleusius, Bishop of Cyzicus - Though usually found acting with the tyrannical and unscrupulous party, of which Macedonius was the Original leader, and sharing in the discredit of their measures against the holders of the Homoousian faith, Eleusius was uncompromising in opposing the pronounced Arians, by whom he was persecuted and deposed
Eleutherus, Bishop of Rome - There is, however, nothing improbable in the Original story itself, and it is more likely to have had some fact than pure invention for its origin, and the Welsh traditions about Lleirwg, though unnoticed by Gildas, may have been ancient and genuine ones, independent of Bede's account
Conscience - " He therefore considers conscience as an Original faculty of our nature, which decides clearly, authoritatively, and instantaneously, on every object that falls within its province
Olives - ...
The olive is still found growing in patches at the foot of the mount to which it gives its name; and "as a spontaneous produce, uninterruptedly resulting from the Original growth of this part of the mountain, it is impossible," says Dr
Age - In Luke 3:23 there is no word in the Original corresponding to age
Manna - ...
Our translators and others make a plain contradiction in the relation of this account of the manna, by rendering it thus: "And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna; for they knew not what it was;" whereas the Septuagint, and several authors, both ancient and modern, have translated the text according to the Original: "The Israelites seeing this, said one to another, What is it? מן חוא ; they could not give it a name
Jubilee, the Year of - When the jubilee arrived, it again reverted to the Original owners
Babylon - A celebrated city situated on the Euphrates, the Original foundation of which is described under the word Babel
Job - It has all the freedom of an Original composition, bearing no marks of its being a translation; and if so, it would appear that its author must have been a Hebrew, since it is written in the purest Hebrew
Image - , not the essential and substantial form of them; the contrast has been likened to the difference between a statue and the shadow cast by it; (3) of the relations between God the Father, Christ, and man, (a) of man as he was created as being a visible representation of God, 1 Corinthians 11:7 , a being corresponding to the Original; the condition of man as a fallen creature has not entirely effaced the "image;" he is still suitable to bear responsibility, he still has Godlike qualities, such as love of goodness and beauty, none of which are found in a mere animal; in the Fall man ceased to be a perfect vehicle for the representation of God; God's grace in Christ will yet accomplish more than what Adam lost; (b) of regenerate persons, in being moral representations of what God is, Colossians 3:10 ; cp
Junilius, Quaestor of the Sacred Palace - This is clearly incorrect with regard to several of them, and one is tempted to think ( pace Kihn) that Junilius himself added this reference to Jerome and did not find it in his Greek Original
Maximus the Cynic, Bishop of Constantinople - When the second oecumenical council met at Constantinople in 381, Maximus's claim to the see of Constantinople was unanimously rejected, the last of its Original four canons decreeing "that he neither was nor is a bishop, nor are they who have been ordained by him in any rank of the clergy" (Labbe, Concil
Paula, a Roman Lady - She had (through her father's family) a good knowledge of Greek, and she learnt Hebrew to be able to repeat and sing the Psalms in the Original (c
Samson - 16, though an integral part of the Original cycle of stories, was apparently at one time omitted by the compiler; see the repeated note in Judges 15:20 ; Judges 16:31 . 681 712) has a remarkable parallel to the burning of the corn by the foxes (or jackals?); at the Cereaila, foxes with lighted torches tied to their tails were let loose in the Circus; he explains the custom as Originally due to the act of a mischievous boy, who burned his father’s corn in the same way. It appears in the account of his birth, perhaps hardly a part of the Original cycle, but added later to justify his inclusion among the Judges
Psalms, Book of - Also, every cultic or Original life situation is not discernible. However, such identification helps the reader to know that type of psalm is being read, with a possible Original context or a fitting present context in worship
Chronicles, i - Originally formed one book. , which had Originally formed its second and concluding portion. ]'>[1] , the Original order has been restored, but Chron. According to the Original account ( 2 Kings 11:1-21 ), Jehoiada was assisted in his rebellion against Athaliah by the foreign bodyguard
Language of Christ - We may think we have good grounds for believing that they accurately represent His utterances; but to hear the Original sounds we must recover, if that be possible, the Semitic vernacular which underlies the traditional Greek. The Magnificat, Nunc Dimittis , and Lord’s Prayer, for example, which must be translations, in accordance with our view of the use of a Semitic vernacular, are thought to savour rather of Original composition than of translation
New Covenant - But she grew up to be a prostitute, unfaithful to her Original benefactor. Jesus likely conceived himself as the eschatological Passover sacrifice bringing about the eschatological salvation of all Israel, typologically parallel to the Original exodus
Mammon - Weiss, Wernle, and Jülicher, all five verses are regarded as editorial glosses, the solution becomes fairly simple, the Original parable having nothing to do with the use of money at all, as Christ meant it. But Luke 16:9 may well be the Original sequel to Luke 16:8 (so Wellhausen recently), in which case ‘the mammon of unrighteousness’ there and in Luke 16:11 is explained by ‘what belongs to another’ in Matthew 16:12. Luke’s ‘ascetic’ bias in estimating some of Christ’s sayings on wealth in the Third Gospel, where logia, perhaps Originally genuine, have been sharpened (e
Polytheism - As to the circumstances which led to polytheism, it has been observed, that taking it for granted that our Original progenitors were instructed by their Creator in the truths of genuine theism, there is no room to doubt but that those truths would be conveyed pure from father to son as long as the race lived in one family, and were not spread over a large extent of country. The first wanderers would, no doubt, retain in tolerable purity their Original notions of Deity, and they would certainly endeavour to impress those notions upon their children; but in circumstances infinitely more favourable to speculation than theirs could have been, the human mind dwells not long upon notions purely intellectual
Gelasius (1) i, Bishop of Rome - There had been other grounds of complaint against Acacius, notably his disregard of the authority of the Roman see; but the above had been the Original cause of quarrel. Its main drift was to justify the excommunication of Acacias by asserting that he had exceeded his powers in absolving Peter Mongus without the authority of the Roman see, and plainly asserts the supremacy of the apostolic see over the whole church as due to the Original commission of Christ to St
Gospel - The sacred narratives then represent to us the high character that he assumed; the claim he made to a divine Original; the wonderful miracles he wrought in proof of his divinity; the various prophecies which plainly marked him out as the Messiah, the great Deliverer of the Jews; the declarations he made that he came to offer himself a sacrifice for the sins of all mankind; the cruel indignities, sufferings, and persecutions to which, in consequence of this great design, he was exposed; the accomplishment or it, by the painful and ignominious death to which he submitted, by his resurrection after three days from the grave, by his ascension into heaven, by his sitting there at the right hand of God, and performing the office of a Mediator and Intercessor for the sinful sons of men, till he shall come a second time in his glory to sit in judgment on all mankind, and decide their final doom of happiness or misery for ever. Though we have only four Original writers of the life of Jesus, the evidence of the history does not rest on the testimony of four men
Pharisees - Their traditions were regarded with greater veneration than the Original Law. 665) that in the Gospels the word ‘Pharisee’ has been substituted for an Original ‘Sadducee’ in the denunciations of Jesus is to be mentioned only as a curiosity, according to the evidence we possess, it has to be said that the Church paid back with interest the persecutions and calumnies she suffered from the Jews
English Versions - Originally written in the northern dialect, it soon spread over all England, and many MSS of it still exist in which the dialect has been altered to suit southern tastes. The Original nucleus seems, indeed, to have consisted of the four larger Catholic Epistles and the Epistles of St. This part of the work is free and vigorous in style, though its interpretation of the Original is often strange, and many sentences in it can have conveyed very little idea of their meaning to its readers. In the first place, it was translated from the Latin Vulgate, not from the Original Hebrew and Greek, with which there is no reason to suppose that Wyclif or his assistants were familiar. For the Latin Bible (the form in which the Scriptures had hitherto been mainly known in Western Europe) there was indeed so great a demand, that no less than 124 editions of it are said to have been issued before the end of the 15th century; but it was only slowly that scholars realized the importance of utilizing the printing press for the circulation of the Scriptures, either in their Original tongues, or in the vernaculars of Europe. In England, Caxton inserted the main part of the OT narrative in his translation of the Golden Legend (which in its Original form already contained the Gospel story), published in 1483; but no regular English version of the Bible was printed until 1525, with which date a new chapter in the history of the English Bible begins
Jesus Christ - The Original conclusion has been lost, but there can be no doubt that it went on to relate at least certain Galilæan appearances of the risen Lord. is now usually regarded as a second and enlarged edition of an Apostolic Original. for the general framework, and derives from the Original Mt. Further, that Gospels composed in the second generation can be trusted to have reproduced the Original testimony with general accuracy may be held on two grounds. There is every reason to believe the ecclesiastical traditions that the contents of Original Mt. The general trustworthiness is further supported by the consideration of the Originality of the Synoptic picture of Jesus and His teaching. Moreover, a very genuine religious Originality and fervour had continued to find expression in the Apocalyptic literature of later Judaism (see Apocalyptic Literature)
Divinity of Christ - The aim is nothing short of recovering the image of the Original Founder of the Faith, expressed in His authentic words and acts; to bring back in all the distinct lineaments of a living Personality the great Teacher whom we now see in the Gospels ‘as through a glass darkly. ’ It seeks by a study of the Original records in the light of all the historical and critical aids now open to us, and guided by the modern idea of evolution, not only to bring us face to face with Jesus of Nazareth, to listen to His direct words of wisdom, but to trace all the steps of His spiritual advance, all the steps by which He grew into the Messiah of Israel and the Ideal of humanity, giving the deepest interpretation to the prophetic dream of His nation, and so lifting it into that higher region in which the freely accepted Cross became the necessary means to the deliverance of man. The more we throw off her encrustments, the nearer we get to the Original, the nearer we are getting to the real Jesus, and, in Him, to the truth of our religion. Herein rests the real Originality of His message, by which His gospel differentiates itself from all other religions on the one hand, and from all merely philosophical or ethical Idealisms on the other; in virtue of which also all interpretations of His Person on humanitarian lines prove inadequate. The Messianic claims of Jesus may be made (as they are made) to rest on the facts; but the facts are not exhausted in those claims, even in the immensely enriched and Original form in which Jesus made them. Subsequent theology accepted the assurance, departed widely from the purely Messianic portraiture, yet claimed, and with perfect justice, that the new departures were in no sense new additions to the Original Gospel, but fresh interpretations, designed to recover and vitalize truths discernible in the Gospels, but imperfectly understood by the Gospel writers
Old Testament (ii. Christ as Student And Interpreter of). - The fact that our Lord commonly spoke Aramaic implies, of course, that all the reports of His speeches and conversations are translations, and this at the outset necessarily complicates the question we wish to investigate, for the references that are clearly obvious to the OT or other writings may be the work of the translator; and, on the other hand, many traces of OT language present in the Original address may now be lost sight of. It is a further question whether and how far the existing Gospels depend upon an Aramaic Original or Originals. The well-known tradition, derived from Papias, that Matthew’s Gospel was Originally composed in Aramaic, has been taken as a basis for various theories, that seek to account for existing divergences among the Synoptics by the supposition that these consist of different translations of the same Original. ...
(b) The second difficulty that attaches to the preliminary investigation of the subject is as to whether our Lord Himself quoted from the Original Hebrew text of the OT, or from the Septuagint. ’ It is very difficult to decide what is meant by this last reference, the supposed Original passage (2 Chronicles 24:21) having a different name for the father of Zachariah (see Barachiah)
Papias - But, whatever his mental calibre, Papias’ importance lies rather in his endeavour to keep in touch with historical witness, as far as possible first-hand witness, to the true or Original meaning of the Lord’s own teaching. Paul, with Ephesus as base of influence; and hither were attracted not a few of the leading personal disciples of Jesus, including, perhaps, several of the Original Apostles. ’...
Here we have a defence of the trustworthiness of Mark’s narrative, so far as it goes, save on the score of the arrangement of its material, which, having Originally been delivered by Peter in an order determined by the exigencies of Christian instruction (διδασκαλίαι, as distinct from public preaching, κήρυγμα), was reproduced by Mark with simple fidelity. Then in the extract which Eusebius immediately subjoins, Papias sums up (οὖν) the net result of his discussion touching the accuracy of ‘the Oracles’ as Originally compiled by that Apostle. ’ In this rendering, which keeps as closely as possible to the order of the Original,† Common - It consists of a chief justice and three other justices, and has cognizance of all causes, real, personal or mixed, as well by Original writ, as by removal from the inferior courts
Salt - The Original idea in this extended ritual use of salt was doubtless this that just as salt was an indispensable accompaniment of man’s dally food, so it could not be absent from the ‘food of God,’ as the sacrifices are termed in Leviticus 21:6 ; Leviticus 21:17
Simeon - There, however; they came into contact with nomad tribes of Edomites and Arabs a circumstance which doubtless contributed to their failure to rehabilitate themselves and win a permanent abode among the Original occupants of the land
Urim And Thummim - There is thus a wide divergence among scholars as to the Original signification of the words. ]'>[8]3 was influenced by the analogy of the Babylonian ‘tablets of destiny’ worn by Marduk on his breast, but the further position that these ‘and the Urim and Thummim were Originally one and the same’ (Muss-Arnoit, Urim and Thummim , 213 and passim ), as has been recently maintained, has yet to be proved
Sabbath - ...
The Sabbath, Originally instituted for man at his creation, is of permanent and universal obligation. Originally at creation the seventh day of the week was set apart and consecrated as the Sabbath. As Creator, Christ was the Original Lord of the Sabbath (John 1:3 ; Hebrews 1:10 ). It was Originally a memorial of creation
Deborah - It begins with a reference to Jehovah's Original, grand, and awful manifestation at Sinai (Exodus 19; Deuteronomy 33:2), the sealing of the covenant with Israel, and the ground of all His subsequent interpositions for them
Pray, Prayer - (2) In 1 Thessalonians 5:23 ; 2 Timothy 4:16 , there is no word in the Original for "I pray," see the RV
Darius - Tatnai and Shethar Boznai's effort to hinder it only occasioned the ratification of Cyrus' Original decree by Darius
Esther, Theology of - ...
The writer of Esther kept the Original story, even with its questionable brutality, nationalism, intrigue, and secularism, but gave it a new theological interpretation within the worship and sacred tradition of Israel
Ebal - ...
"The Canaanites" are mentioned in Deuteronomy 11:30, as in Genesis 12:6, as then already in the land, which Originally was held by a Semitic race, but was afterward taken by the Hamitic Canaanites whose Original seat was near the Red Sea, from whence they migrated northwards
Reproach - Paul takes OT phraseology out of its Original context and employs it for his own purpose
Cyprus - )...
Besides Barnabas we have mention of Mnason, an ‘original convert,’ as coming from Cyprus (Acts 21:16 ), but we have no knowledge of how the Church grew in the island until it included 15 bishoprics
Jairus - form of the story the most Original, and explains the representation in Mk
Consecrate, Consecration - These last uses would at least point to the conclusion that τελειόω and τελείωσις tended to become semi-technical terms for the consecration of the priest, having Originally been used to translate the verb in the Heb. Most probably its Original sense is suggested in the corresponding Assyrian kâtû mullû = ‘hand over to one (or make one responsible for) a person or thing or office’ (cf
Ashtoreth - ‘Ashtaroth , Judges 2:13 ; Jdg 10:6 , 1 Samuel 7:13 ; 1 Samuel 12:10 ); in Syria, ‘Atbar, and in Phœnicia, ‘Astart, whence the Hebrew ‘Ashtoreth, with the vowels of bôsheth (‘shameful thing’) substituted for the Original
Ambrosiaster, or Pseudo-Ambrosius - There can be little doubt that, whoever was the author, the work no longer retains its Original form
Shushan - "Loftus" (Chaldaea Susiana ) ascertained next the position of all the 72 pillars of the Original palace
Evolution - In particular, for the formation of our planetary system there is the theory elaborated by Chamberlain and Moulton (and subsequently by Jeans), according to which the planets and their motion are the result of a near encounter between the Original mass of the sun and another large heavenly body which has long since passed on its way
Concubine - " (Compare Genesis 2:24 with Mark 10:9) Now the introduction of a concubine, of how inferior a degree soever she may be, is, to all intents and purposes, a destroying this junction, and, by so much, a breach of the Original appointment of the Lord
Joseph - ...
As Joseph was the beloved son of Jacob, and distinguished by his father with special tokens, of his affection, and which excited the envy of his brethren; so Christ, the beloved and only begotten son of God, by means of that distinguishing token of JEHOVAH, in setting him up, the Head of his body the church, and giving him a kingdom, in his glorious character of Mediator, called forth, as is most generally believed, that war we read of in heaven in the Original rebellion of angels
Anointing - This is not the place to investigate the Original signification of the act of anointing in religious ceremonies (see Robertson Smith, Rel
Eulalius, an Antipope - Fifthly, eventually, serious provocation being given, he settled the question on his own authority, without the sanction of a synod or regard to the canonicity of the Original election
Nimrod - The meaning of the word Nineveh may lead us to his Original name, Nin, signifying "a son," the most celebrated of the sons of Cush
Judges - Sigonius supposes that these elders and judges of cities were the Original constitution settled in the wilderness by Moses, upon the advice given him by Jethro, Exodus 18:21-22 , and continued by divine appointment after the settlement in the land of Canaan; whereas others imagine that the Jethronian prefectures were a peculiar constitution, suited to their condition while encamped in the wilderness, but laid aside after they came into Canaan
Rome - Its first growth is obscure, there being, however, three clearly-defined Original tribes, Ramnians (Latins), Titians (Sabines), and Luceres (Etruscans)
Out - From, noting copy from an Original as, to cite or copy out of Horace
Pleroma - The obscurity of this statement is removed by the active interpretation; the supplementary ‘unfulled’ patch takes away from the Original garment
Phoeni'ce, Phoenic'ia - Concerning the Original race to which the Phoenicians belonged, nothing can be known with certainty, because they are found already established along the Mediterranean Sea at the earliest dawn of authentic history, and for centuries afterward there is no record of their origin
Punishments - Of secondary punishments among the Jews, the Original Principles were, ...
Retaliation , "eye for eye," etc
Witness - 7 (it was a marginal gloss which crept into the Original text: see THREE); it finds no support in Scripture; (c) of the Scriptures, to Christ, John 5:39 ; Hebrews 7:8,17 ; (d) of the works of Christ, to Himself, and of the circumstances connected with His Death, John 5:36 ; 10:25 ; 1 John 5:8 ; (e) of prophets and apostles, to the righteousness of God, Romans 3:21 ; to Christ, John 1:7,8,15,32,34 ; 3:26 ; 5:33 , RV; 15:27; 19:35; 21:24; Acts 10:43 ; 23:11 ; 1 Corinthians 15:15 ; 1 John 1:2 ; 4:14 ; Revelation 1:2 ; to doctrine, Acts 26:22 (in some texts, so AV; see No
Nonnus of Panopolis - The style is very florid, marked by a luxuriance of epithets and Original compounds (often of very arbitrary formation), elaborate periphrasis, and metaphors often piled together in hopeless confusion; and many unusual forms are invented
Pelagius ii., Bishop of Rome - Augustine as to the necessity of all churches being united to apostolic sees, but further cites Cyprian de Unitate Ecclesiae (with interpolations that give the passages a meaning very different from their Original one) in support of the peculiar authority of St
Polycarpus, Moyses of Aghel - ...
It seems highly probable that we have a considerable portion of this Original Philoxenian, in the version of the four minor Catholic Epistles (II
Talents - The first two slaves bring the capital they have Originally received and that which they have made by trading. There is, therefore, no substantial reason for assuming that the same Original parable has developed into these two very different stories. But it is a mere prejudice, on the other side, to imagine that similarities are always to be accounted for as variants of the same Original, and we may well hold that Jesus deliberately developed a similar story along these two different lines, just because He thus brought out significantly different lessons. The total amount is in each case merely a doubling of the Original capital, and the contrast between half and the whole is exaggerated if it is described as a contrast between few and many
Jacob - His name is probably an elliptical form of an Original Jakob’el , ‘God follows’ ( i. ]'>[4] are closely interwoven, though a degree of Original independence is shown by an occasional divergence in tradition, which adds to the credibility of the joint narrative. Again Jacob’s stay must not be measured by days; for he erected an altar ( 2 Chronicles 33:20 ) and dug a well ( John 4:6 ; John 4:12 ), and was detained by domestic troubles, if not of his own Original intention
Apocalyptic Literature - ) The Original ground-work of the present book is to be found in chs. ...
( b ) The (Slavonic) Secrets of Enoch probably had a pre-Christian Original, and further, presupposes the existence of the Ethiopic Enoch. The book is no doubt closely related to the Apocalypse of Baruch , and both apparently reproduce the same Originally Jewish material. It exists to-day in Greek and Syriac versions, with a strong probability that both are derived from Original Hebrew writing
Antichrist - It is not, however, an idea Original to Christianity, but an adaptation of Jewish conceptions which, as Bousset has shown (The Antichrist Legend), had developed before the time of Christ into a full-grown Antichrist legend of a hostile counterpart of the Messiah who would make war against Him but whom He would finally overthrow. The myth appears to have belonged to the common stock of Semitic ideas, and must have become familiar to the Hebrews from their earliest settlement in Canaan, if indeed it was not part of the ancestral tradition carried with them from their Original Aramaean home. Revelation 13:13-1572 Luke 21:20), which occurs in the great eschatological discourse, some critics have seen a parallel to 1618100603_69 and an evident allusion to the Jewish Antichrist tradition; but they do so on the presumption that the words were not spoken by Jesus Himself and are to be attributed to a redactor of the Original source
Son - The word "again" in the AV in Acts 13:33 represents nothing in the Original. He who was thus seen was indeed the "Son of Man," but the absence of the article in the Original serves to stress what morally characterizes Him as such
Unity - Yet this duality exists within the circumference, so to say, of an eternal unity before and after; an Original self-existent principle of evil is excluded by NT thought. -As has been said, the NT attempts no solution of the problem how duality has arisen out of an Original unity, and the same is largely true of the converse problem, how the existent duality is to be finally overcome, resolved into the eternal unity of Divine truth and love
the Angel of the Church in Thyatira - Nay, the more impossible to receive the offered reading is the more certain it is to have stood in the Original text. ...
It was not the schools of the prophets in Israel that made Hosea the great and Original and evangelical prophet that he was
Simeon - " His mentioning his Original name accords with his design in 2 Peter, to warn against coming false teachers (2 Peter 2) by setting forth the true "knowledge" of Christ on the testimony of the Original apostolic eye witnesses like himself
Genealogy of Jesus Christ - Perhaps, then, Originally Jehoiakim ended the second division, and Jehoiachin began the third, and they became confused owing to the similarity of spelling and were written alike (as in 1 Chronicles 3:15 , Jeremiah 52:31 LXX no'ah - The word occurs only in Genesis and in ( Exodus 2:3 ) In all probability it is to the old Egyptian that we are to look for its Original form. With the well-known facts, then, before us regarding this depressed Asiatic region, let us suppose that the human family, still amounting to several millions, though greatly reduced by exterminating wars and exhausting vices, were congregated in that tract of country which, extending eastward from the modern Ararat to far beyond the Sea of Aral, includes the Original Caucasian centre of the race
Cabbala - It is Originally Hebrew, קבלה , and properly signifies reception; formed from the verb קכל , to receive by tradition, or from father to son; especially in the Chaldee and Rabbinical Hebrew. Such is the Original notion of the cabbala. Many learned moderns, relying implicitly upon these authorities, have maintained the same opinion; and have thence been inclined to credit the report of the divine Original of the Jewish cabbala
no'ah - The word occurs only in Genesis and in ( Exodus 2:3 ) In all probability it is to the old Egyptian that we are to look for its Original form. With the well-known facts, then, before us regarding this depressed Asiatic region, let us suppose that the human family, still amounting to several millions, though greatly reduced by exterminating wars and exhausting vices, were congregated in that tract of country which, extending eastward from the modern Ararat to far beyond the Sea of Aral, includes the Original Caucasian centre of the race
Power - ...
In Authorized Version of Gospels ‘power’ is used with about equal frequency to represent two words in the Original, δύναμις and ἐξονσία. In dealing with the most venerated religious precepts and traditions, He acts with the ease and freedom of Original authority, noting limitations and supplying enlarged meanings and higher applications (Matthew 5:33-48). The same qualities of range and Originality are recognized in His sympathy with the outcast and suffering (Luke 7:34; Luke 13:11, John 11:35), in His knowledge of the heart and its temptations (Luke 5:20; Luke 7:47, John 4:18), and in His controversies with the Jewish leaders (Matthew 22:15-46)
Dan - He was the Original ancestor of the tribe of Dan
Zebulun - ...
The Original form of the name is uncertain, there being some evidence in favour of Zebulon , and even Zebul . ’ Zebul is here used of the dwelling of God, elsewhere of the sun and moon, and, therefore, probably designated Originally, in harmony with the Assyrian, a lofty abode, a bçth-har , or mountain sanctuary, such as is referred to in Deuteronomy 33:19 as being in the territory of Zebulun and Issachar
Covenant - Still, here and in the Original (Exodus 24:8) quoted by Christ the idea of testamentary disposition enters
Theudas - ...
(3) Still other interpreters think the Theudas incidents of Acts and of Josephus are so similar in general content that they must have been Originally identical, but it is Josephus, they hold, rather than Acts that is erroneous. Originally he had given no name, or else a different one, and some Christian copyist under the influence of Acts 5:36 introduced the name of Theudas. But most scholars who find Acts at fault think the error a part of the Original composition and due to the author’s defective knowledge of Josephus
Tiberias - The Original inhabitants were foreigners, whom Herod either forced to reside in the new city or to whom he gave special inducements if they would
Devil, Satan, Evil, Demonic - Satan was evidently perfect in his Original state
Baptism of the Holy Spirit - It is unlikely that anybody in John's Original audience knew exactly what he meant by these predictions
Marriage - The institution of marriage dates from the time of man's Original creation
New Heavens And a New Earth - 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. This provides a continuity and fulfillment of the purposes God began in the Original creation and has now been brought to completion
Martha - Luke was not an Original author but an editor of the Evangelic Tradition, and his aim was not chronological accuracy but the exhibition of Jesus
Matthew (2) - ]'>[2] Levi, according to the analogy of Simon and Peter, may have been the Original name and Matthew the acquired; though, according to Edersheim (Life and Times, i
Flood, the - All the Original generic types then existing were gathered into the ark, from which the species, under many varying circumstances, may have greatly increased
Inspiration - But if the translation conveys exactly the same meaning as in the Original, the words can be said to be inspired: for instance, the words 'God is love,' may surely be said to be the same as ὁ θεὸς ἀγάπη ἐστίν, or Deus caritas est, Dieu est amour, or Dio è carità, to those who can read them
Son of Man - He comes again as man to reinstate man in his Original glory, never to be dispossessed of it
Altar - The Original purpose of an altar was to serve as a means by which the blood of an animal offered in sacrifice might be brought into contact with, or otherwise transferred to, the deity of the worshipper
History, Church - ,state the facts without bias and in their proper perspective, as found in the sources; based on Original sources, i
Minister - The Bible should be well studied, and that, if possible, in the Original language
Law - It was most solemnly proclaimed by God himself at Sinai, to confirm the Original law of nature, and correct men's mistakes concerning the demands of it. Laws, remedial, a fancied law, which some believe in, who hold that God, in mercy to mankind, has abolished that rigorous constitution or law that they were under Originally, and instead of it has introduced a more mild constitution, and put us under a new law, which requires no more than imperfect sincere obedience, in compliance with our poor, infirm, impotent circumstances since the fall
Knowledge of God (1) - It is owing to this state that even arbitrary governments seem to have lost something of their Original ferocity, and that there is a source of improvement in Europe which will, we hope, in future times, shed the most delightful influences on society, and unite its members in harmony, peace, and love
Shem - Methuselah and Shem were the two links between Adam and Isaac, so that the record of creation and man's fall came to Isaac on the testimony of the Original chief actor, transmitted by only two intervening links. Aryan races subsequently occupied the places respectively assigned them by Providence in Canaan and elsewhere; but the Semitics were probably (as the Semitic Melchizedek exemplifies) in Canaan Originally, and the Hamite Canaanites acquired their language

Borrow - Hence, therefore, the Original word is not, in the strict sense of it, to borrow as a loan; but may be rendered, to ask or request, or beg and crave

Synagogue - In our own day the Jews erect synagogues wherever they are sufficiently numerous, and assemble on their Sabbath for worship; this being conducted, that is, the reading or chanting of the Old Testament and of prayers, in the Original Hebrew, though it is a dead language spoken by few among them
Ath'Ens - The inhabitants were previously called Cecropidae, from Cecrops, who, according to tradition, was the Original founder of the city
ba'Bel - On the seventh stage there was probably placed the ark or tabernacle, which seems to have been again 15 feet high, and must have nearly, if not entirely, covered the top of the seventh story The entire Original height, allowing three feet for the platform, would thus have been 156 feet, or, without the plat-form, 163 feet
Vulgate - The position of the Latin Vulgate, as a version of the Original texts of the Bible, has been dealt with in the two articles on the Text of the OT and the NT. Although the English Bible, to which we have been accustomed for nearly 300 years, is in the main a translation from the Original Hebrew and Greek, it must be remembered that for the first thousand years of the English Church the Bible of this country, whether in Latin or in English, was the Vulgate. 404, the Latin Bible as left by him was a very complex structure, the parts of which differed very considerably in their relations to the Original Greek and Hebrew texts. Gall before 842, the Original form of the Glossa Ordinaria , the standard commentary on the Bible in the Middle Ages. After Alcuin and Theodulf no important effort was made to recover the Original text of the Vulgate, though some attempt in this direction was made by Lanfranc, of which no traces seem to survive; but the history of its diffusion can to some extent be followed by the help of the extant MSS, which now begin to increase greatly in number
Rome - -There is a general consensus of opinion that the Original Rome, Roma Quadrata (‘Square Rome’), was on the Palatine Hill only-the hill of Pales, the shepherds’ god. The temple was Originally built about 500 b. The level of the ground round about has been gradually raised in the period intervening between the Original date of the building and the present day. The Original building on this site goes back to the year 179 b. On its destruction by fire, he built a much larger building, which retained the Original name. The Original building, erected in 27 b. The building, Originally erected to all the divine protectors of the Julian house, has since a
Simon Magus - It is probable that these versions are independent re-castings of a common Original. The question in doubt is whether the Original story told only of a conflict between Simon and Peter in Syria, or whether it related an earlier conflict in Syria and a later one in Rome. Probably this is a piecing together of two stories, Originally independent. George Salmon brought light into darkness by distinguishing between Simon of Gitta and the Original Simon Magus. ’ His conclusions are: ‘(1) That all we know of the Original Simon Magus is contained in Acts; (2) that from very early times he has been confused with another Simon’; and he adds: ‘Before such an amalgam of paganism and Christianity could be propounded, it is evident that Christianity must have been for some little time before the world, and that the system cannot possibly be traced back to Simon Magus. His disciples became a sect which bore his name and which persisted long after the death of the Original members

He began also his studies on the Original of O. They knew Greek; learned Hebrew that they might sing the Psalms in the Original; learned by heart the writings of their teacher (lxxvii.

Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons - ) It is commonly cited under the briefer title πρός αἱρέσεις ( contra Haereses ) We possess it entire in the Latin version only, which, however, must have been made from the Greek Original very soon after its composition, since the Latin was used by Tertullian some ten years after, in his tractate adv. Most of the Original work being now lost, the slavish literality of the translator imparts to his version a very high value. Beside this Latin version, which appears to have soon superseded the Greek Original in the Western church, there was a Syriac translation, of which numerous fragments are extant and were first put together by Harvey in his ed. The Greek Original, said to have been still extant in the 16th cent. the first two, we owe the greater part of the Original Greek of bk
Lutherans - ...
Upon Original sin the doctrine of the schoolmen was no less fanciful and remote from every Scriptural idea, than flattering to human pride. Original sin the Roman schoolmen directly opposed to Original righteousness; and this they considered not as something connatural with man, but as a superinduced habit of adventitious ornament, the removal of which could not prove detrimental to the native powers of his mind. Avoiding all intricate questions upon the subject, they taught that Original sin is a corruption of our nature in a general sense, a depravation of the mental faculties and the corporeal appetites; that the resplendent image of the Deity, which man received at the creation of the world, although not annihilated, is nevertheless greatly impaired; and that, in consequence, the bright characters of unspotted sanctity, once deeply engraven on his mind by the hand of the living God are become obliterated, the injury extending to his intellect, and affecting as well his reason and his will as his affections and passions. " The disciples of Lombard, in whatever mode disposed to pervert reason and annihilate Scripture, universally held, that neither before nor after the fall was man in himself capable of meriting heaven; that by the gratuitous endowments of his creation, even in paradise, he was only enabled to preserve his innocence, and not to sin; and that he was utterly incompetent to proceed one step farther, efficaciously to will a remunerable good, and by his natural exertions to obtain a reward above his nature; Original righteousness being reputed not a connate quality, but a supernatural habit
Virgin Birth - The secret of Jesus’ birth may have been for long jealously guarded within the narrow circle among whom it was Originally known. The real reply of Mary to the Original announcement in Luke 2:30-32; Luke 2:36-37 follows in Luke 2:38 ‘Be it unto me according to thy word,’ and her submission to the heavenly will wins the blessing of Elisabeth (Luke 2:42). ]'>[4] The verses are of the same character as the rest of the narrative, and must be the work of a Jewish writer; and there is every reason to believe, with Gunkel, that they are translated from a Hebrew Original. The Hebrew Original of συλλήψῃ there would be a participle,¶ Romans Epistle to the - The indications come from the last two chapters; did these form part of the Original Epistle? In particular, even if ch. -There are here two distinct, though possibly related, problems to be considered: (a) the Original destination of ch. 16 Originally addressed to Rome?-We are at once struck by the fact that though St. ...
It will be understood that the evidence for the doxology after Romans 14:23 is also evidence for the existence of a short recension, since the doxology cannot have stood Originally between Romans 14:23 and Romans 15:1 making a complete break in the sense. ...
We have, then, these three textual phenomena-the existence of a short recension of the Epistle; the displacement, or omission, of the doxology; and the omission of the words ‘in Rome’-together with the doubt attaching to the Original destination of Romans 16:23, though it is not yet clear how far they are all connected. He suggests that the Original Epistle consisted of chs. (1) The Epistle may have Originally ended with Romans 15:33; the short prayer is quite in keeping with St. It must, however, be remembered that if Lake’s view that the Epistle was not Originally intended for Rome be accepted, the reference of the details of the Epistle to the circumstances of the Roman Church will fall to the ground
Resurrection - Paul’s exposition of the resurrection clearly implies a resurrection before the Messianic kingdom in order that the dead may share in its blessings, it is possible that the idea may have been already present in his Original scheme of eschatology, although he had not imparted it to his converts. Paul’s indebtedness to the mystery-religions for any ideas as to the resurrection belongs rather to the discussion of the development of his doctrine than to the evidence for his Original stock of ideas on the subject. ...
Into this Original stock of eschatological belief there broke the new conception of a Messiah who had died and risen. The resurrection of Christ assumes a catastrophic colouring, so to speak: it becomes the first act of Divine intervention in the introduction of the Kingdom, the first step of a process whose culmination also has a catastrophic character derived from the Original scheme of eschatology
Bible - ...
Within the books of the Bible there were Originally no divisions, except in the case of the Psalms, which were always indicated as separate poems, and elsewhere in the case of definite statements of differences of contents, such as the Song of Miriam, the Song of Deborah, ‘the words of Agur,’ and ‘the words of King Lemuel’ (in Prov. Original Languages . All the NT was Originally written in Greek. , Symmachus, who, according to Epiphanius, was a Samaritan turned Jew, although Eusebius calls him an Ebionite, produced a version the aim of which was to render the Original text into idiomatic Greek of good style, with the result, however, that in some places it became a paraphrase rather than a translation. , but there is much difference of opinion as to the Original text of the former. The Original Gothic Version was the work of Ulfilas in the 4th century
Immanuel - It is necessary, first of all, to examine the Original prophecy before discussing the Evangelist’s application of it to Jesus. We are accordingly confronted with the problem whether the Original text is here preserved. Nevertheless, when we look at Isaiah 7:16 we see that it is practically compounded of part of Isaiah 7:22 and part of Isaiah 7:16, whereas the words ‘whose two kings thou abhorrest’ make a much greater impression of Originality. It is quite plain that this interpretation was in general very little controlled by the Original sense of the OT passage quoted. In its Original meaning ‘it expresses the fact that the great mythic mother-goddess was independent of the marriage tie’ (p
Psalms (2) - Here is a case—and there are others—where the argument holds only on the basis of the Greek translation; it would be irrelevant and inapplicable on the basis of the Original Hebrew (cf. Doubtless time might prove that the meaning of a psalm was larger than the Original intention of its composer: this is true more or less of all great literature. But to understand truly its deeper meaning, we must start from its Original intention, and from the situation in view of which it was composed. This is a noble application of the passage, full of poetic and spiritual insight; but it does not justify us in supposing that the psalm was, in its Original intention, Messianic
Matthew, the Gospel According to - (Ηebruikois grammasin ) Probably this Nazarene was the Original Hebrew Gospel of Matthew interpolated and modified, yet not so much so as the Ebionite Gospel. The Original Hebrew of which Papias, etc. ...
A translator would not have presumed to alter Matthew's Original so as to have the air of Originality which it has; if he had, his compilation would never have been accepted as the authentic Gospel of the inspired apostle Matthew by the churches which had within them men possessing the gift of "discerning spirits" (1 Corinthians 12:10)
Language of Christ - It is, therefore, quite possible that Christ possessed a knowledge of Hebrew, and had thus access to the Scriptures in the Original. ’ The theory which Professor Marshall in these articles works out with great ability and skill is that the variant Greek words in parallel passages of the Synoptic Gospels can be traced to one Original Aramaic word; and the result of the application of his theory is that the Aramaic Gospel contained, speaking generally, the ministry of Christ in Galilee. Abbott, Essays chiefly on the Original Texts of OT and NT, 1891, p

He adds that, though pieces were frequently taken from the cross, its Original bulk was miraculously preserved ( Ep
Hebrews - Many have speculated that Hebrews was Originally a sermon preached to a church in Rome (notice the reference to “hearing” and “teaching” in Hebrews 10:19-2059 ) and later sent to a church outside of Rome (Hebrews 13:24 ), perhaps experiencing similar circumstances. In this case, Hebrews 1-12 would represent the Original sermon, and Hebrews 13:1 would represent the brief note ( Hebrews 10:26-313 ) attached for the second congregation. Hebrews 10:32-34 describes a time of persecution endured by the Original recipients
Canticles; the Song of Solomon - The union of Christ and His church was the Original fact in the mind of God, on which human marriage is based (Ephesians 5:23-32). This idea pervades all Scripture, from the Original Eden (Song of Solomon 6:13) down to the restored paradise (Psalms 45:9-15; Revelation 21:2; Revelation 21:9-10; Revelation 22:17)
Jerusalem - The lower portion of the eastern part was the Original fortress, built by prehistoric inhabitants. Zion, the name of the Original fortress, now became synonymous with the city of David
the Unprofitable Servant - "The more," says Newman in one of his thrice-written sermons, "any man succeeds in regulating his own heart, the more he will discern its Original bitterness and guilt. "A Book," says the noble-minded and generous-hearted Chalmers, "of great mental wealth and great mental vigour, rich in scholarship, and of a massive and an Original power
Tiberius - The Emperor Tiberius belonged to the family of the Claudii Nerones, a branch of the patrician gens Claudia which separated from the Original family about the middle of the 3rd cent. These statements are now regarded as historically valueless, and may have been taken from some apocryphal work, possibly the Original Acts of Pilate, known to Justin (Apol
Harmony of the Gospels - ...
The first “modern” solution focused on the hypothesis of a single, Original gospel which is now lost to us. Therefore, some modern questioners will find themselves extremely frustrated when they expect scientifically precise answers about documents, the Original purpose of which was to be religiously reliable about the exciting good news from God through Jesus Christ
Creation - It is not improbable that the scheme of days is a modification of the Original cosmogony, introduced in the interest of the Sabbath law; and this adaptation may account for some anomalies of arrangement which seem to mar the consistency of the scheme. ), the earth as Originally made by Jahweh was an arid lifeless waste, in which no plant could grow for lack of moisture, and where there was no man to till the ground (vv. Looking, however, to the vastly higher antiquity of the Babylonian narrative, to its conformity (even in points which affect the Biblical record) to the climatic conditions of the Euphrates Valley, and to the general indebtedness of Israel to the civilization of Babylon, it cannot reasonably be doubted that the Hebrew narrative is dependent on Babylonian models; though it is of course not certain that the particular version preserved in the tablets referred to is the exact Original by which the Biblical writers were influenced
Hosanna - supra) as ‘corruptions of the Original version’: the addition ‘in the highest,’ he declares to be ‘words which no longer give any sense. Hosanna was, says Alford (on Matthew 21:9), ‘originally a formula of supplication, but [1] conventionally [2] of gratulation, so that it is followed by a dative, and by “in the highest,”—meaning “may it also be ratified in heaven,”—and he cites 1 Kings 1:36, where Benaiah answers David, saying, ‘Amen: the Lord, the God of my lord the king, say so too. But it seems unnatural to postulate so violent an alteration in the meaning of the word—from ‘supplication’ to ‘gratulation,’ when, taken in its Original meaning, it yields a sufficient sense: ‘Save now, for it is to thee, O Son of David, that the power to save us has been given
Magnificat - But most critics (Burkitt, Harnack, Wordsworth) agree that the Original text must have been καὶ εἶπεν without either name. But if the Original text of the Gospel had καὶ εἶπεν Μεγαλύνει, κ
Commandments - This is recognized in the Fourth Gospel, where the Originality of the Christian law is brought into clear prominence (see art. The ethical teaching of Jesus is directed, in the first place, to restoring the commandments to their Original simplicity and purity. ...

the Man Who Took a Rain of Mustard Seed And Sowed it in His Field - ...
To begin with, the kingdom of heaven in Old Testament times was like a grain of mustard seed in its Original smallness, and then in the great tree that it ultimately became. And in like manner, all our divinity halls had their first Original in that small school which Samuel set up on his father's little property at Ramah
Manichees - ...
The beings engendered from this Original stock consist of a body formed out of the corrupt matter of the kingdom of darkness, and of two souls; one of which is sensitive and lustful, and owes its existence to the evil principle; the other rational and immortal, a particle of that divine light which had been carried away in that contest by the army of darkness, and immersed into the mass of malignant matter. ...
Those souls who believe Jesus Christ to be the Son of God, renounce the worship of the god of the Jews, who is the prince of darkness, and obey the laws delivered by Christ, and illustrated by Manes the comforter, are gradually purified from the contagion of matter; and their purification being completed, after having passed through two states of trial, by water and fire, first in the moon and then in the sun, their bodies return to the Original mass (for the Manicheans derided the resurrection of bodies, ) and their souls ascend to the regions of light
Nazarene - " In the Original the word separate is Nezer, that is, a Nazarite among his brethren. " In the Original the very same word for separate is used as Genesis 49:26—so that Moses as well as Jacob, declared by the type Joseph, that the great Antitype should be the Nazarite or separate from among his brethren
Prophecy Prophet Prophetess - It was the spoken utterance of the man of vision and inspiration; it was a declaration of the ‘word of Jahweh’; it was a revelation of the Divine will not so much in the sense of prediction-an aspect of prophecy not Original, but subordinate-but rather in the sense of spiritual instruction involving a special degree of religious and ethical insight. Christian prophets are referred to in the context of Acts 2:18, where προφητεύσουσιν is not part of the Original quotation; and the gift which developed at Pentecost in the Church at Jerusalem was destined to spread wherever a Christian society came into being

Magi - " Muller (Herzog Cyclopedia) says that the Median priests were not Originally called Magi, but by the names found in the Zendavesta "Atharva," guardians of the fire, and that the Chaldaeans first gave them the name Magi. ...
The Magians probably lost some of the Original purity of the simpler Median religion by contact with the superstitions of Babylon: still there remained some elements of truth and opposition to idolatry, which formed common ground between them and Daniel (Daniel 5:11; Daniel 6:3; Daniel 6:16; Daniel 6:26; Ezra 1:1-4; Isaiah 44:28)

Nehemiah, Book of - The two books, separated in our Bible and appearing there as Ezra and Nehemiah , Originally formed a single book (as appears from the Talmud, the LXX Righteousness - “Righteousness” in the Original languages denotes far more than in English usage; indeed, biblical righteousness is generally at odds with current English usage
River - The Original Paradise (Genesis 2:10) possessed a river, and Paradise Regained must possess one too
Origenists - As in the material system there is a gravitation of the less bodies towards the greater, there must of necessity be something analogous to this in the intellectual system; and since the spirits created by God are emanations and streams from his own abyss of being, and as self-existent power must needs subject all beings to itself, the Deity could not but impress upon her intimate natures and substances a central tendency towards himself; an essential principle of reunion to their great Original
Church, Gallican - This church always enjoyed certain franchises and immunities, not as grants from popes, but as derived to her from her first Original, and which she took care never to relinquish
Sex, Biblical Teaching on - This overlording by males is a result of sin distorting God's Original plan for humans
New Jerusalem - Second Baruch 4 compares the new city to the Original "paradise, " an interesting comparison in light of Revelation 2:7
Gerizim - It was at Shechem also that all Israel gathered to make Rehoboam king (1 Kings 12:1), and this was the Original capital of the Northern Kingdom
Holy One - Now, since the two passages in which ὅσιος occurs are in a quotation from the LXX Septuagint, and the signification of the term is most likely to be derived from a Hebrew Original, it will be necessary to ask if these two words are uniformly used to represent corresponding Hebrew ones, or used indiscriminately to translation different Heb
Lebbaeus - ...
That there was another Judas besides the traitor among the Twelve is attested by John 14:22, and it is possible that later his name was less used to avoid remembrance of the traitor and confusion with him, and that his Original name ‘Judas’ was replaced by ‘Thaddaeus’ in Mk
Longsuffering - These forms, however, occur in the Original in a number of passages, where the English Bible (both Authorized Version and Revised Version ) has as their rendering ‘patient,’ ‘patiently,’ ‘patience’ (Matthew 18:26, Acts 26:3, Hebrews 6:12; Hebrews 6:15, James 5:7-8; James 5:10)

Colossae - (Κολοσσαί in the opening of the Epistle, 1:2; in the title, which is not Original, there is about equal authority for Κολοσσαεῖς and Κολασσαεῖς; in the subscription the authority for Κολασσαεῖς predominates)
Colours - Among the writers of the NT the sense of colour is strongest in the author of the Revelation, who partly reproduces the colour-symbolism of earlier authors, priestly, prophetic, and apocalyptic, and partly is Original
Illuminati (3) - But that a set of men of learning and abilities, such as Weishaupt and his associates are allowed to be, should form a conspiracy to overturn, and with more than Gothic rage utterly abolish the arts and sciences, and to restore the supposed Original savage state of man, appears to us a phenomenon in the history of the human heart totally unaccountable
Acacius (7), Patriarch of Constantinople - Acacias was Originally at the head of an orphanage at Constantinople, which he administered with conspicuous success (Suidas, s. The Original documents, exclusive of the histories of Evagrius, Theophanes, and Liberatus, are for the most part collected in the 58th volume of Migne's Patrologia
Areopagite, Areopagus - ...
Areopagus (Acts 17:19 Authorized Version and Revised Version ; Acts 17:22 Authorized Version ‘Mars’ Hill,’ Revised Version ‘Areopagus’; the Revised Version is correct in rendering ‘Areopagus’ in both places, as it preserves the ambiguity of the Original)

Name - Sometimes proper names are translated into other languages, losing their Original form, while they preserve their signification
Ark of the Covenant - The only use that was made of it was to be a representation of the former on the great day of expiation, and to be a repository of the Holy Scriptures, that is, of the Original copy of that collection of them made by Ezra after the captivity; in imitation of which the Jews, in all their synagogues, have a like ark or coffer in which they keep their Scriptures
Pilate - However, neither Eusebius nor Jerom, who were both inquisitive and understanding persons, nor any other author who wrote afterward, seems to have seen them, at least not the true and Original acts
Agur - Reasoning from analogy, we may infer that all the proper names in the Old Testament, at their Original imposition, were intended to denote some quality or circumstance in the person or thing to which they belong; and though many, from transference, have ceased to be personally characteristic, yet are they all significative

Ravels - In the Original text, in the Samaritan, in the Chaldee and Arabic, it is said that the raven "returned" to the ark; but the Greek interpreters, the Syriac, the Latin, and most of the eminent fathers and commentators, say that it did not return any more
Lord's Supper - --"The Original supper was taken in a private house, an upper chamber, at night, around a table, reclining, women excluded, only the ordained apostles admitted
Precious Stones - ...
The idea of a New Jerusalem built of precious stones (Revelation 21:19-21) was not Original, for it occurs in the prayer of Tobit (Tobit 13:16-17). ...
It is probable that precious stones were Originally valued less for their beauty and rarity than for the magical and medicinal powers which they were supposed to possess
Make - " (7) In Acts 22:1 the verb "I make" represents no word in the Original, lit
Faith - In the Original language of the New Testament, the noun ‘faith’ and the verb ‘believe’ are different parts of the same word
Silvester, Bishop of Rome - The Original Acts have not been preserved
Hebrews, Letter to the - Since the title ‘To the Hebrews’ is not part of the Original writing, there is no clear statement in the Bible to indicate to whom the letter to the Hebrews was written
Levite - A feature of some of the reforms was the organization of temple duties for priests and Levites according to David’s Original plan (2 Chronicles 29:25-30; 2 Chronicles 31:2-19; 2 Chronicles 35:1-15)
Tabernacle - That this is the more correct rendering of the Original ’ôhel mô‘çd , as compared with AV

Fulfilment - Also, as already implied, Authorized and Revised Versions sometimes introduces ‘fulfil’ or ‘be fulfilled’ where the Original has merely ‘do’ or ‘be. And the question may be raised, whether the NT writers were alive to the implication of steady quantitative growth towards fulfilment? Or had the Original suggestions of quantity and of continuousness passed away,—was there assumed a mere between the word and its fulfilment? (If one pours water into a vessel, it fills degrees. But when (as Marti advises) we refer back to Isaiah 5:19, we find that the word ‘hasten’ was introduced Originally to express the temper of a sneerer—‘Let God hurry up, if He is really going to act [8]. We might take Matthew 5:17 b either as spoken here in pure abstraction—‘I am not a destroyer but a fulfiller’—or as Originally a separate logion worked into this context by the Evangelist. On Christ’s Originality in this matter, comp. Thus, after all, the evidence of the Epistles as to the Original meaning of Matthew 5:17 is neutral, or at any rate not decisive
Bible - ...
These sections were divided into verses; of which division, if Ezra was not the author, it was introduced not long after him, and seems to have been designed for the use of the Targumists, or Chaldee interpreters; for after the return of the Jews from the Babylonish captivity, when the Hebrew language ceased to be their mother tongue, and the Chaldee grew into use instead of it, the custom was, that the law should be first read in the Original Hebrew, and then interpreted to the people in the Chaldee language; for which purpose these shorter sections were very convenient. The subdivision of the chapters into verses, as they now stand in our Bibles, had its Original from a famous Jewish Rabbi, named Mordecai Nathan, about 1445. The Bohemians have a Bible translated by eight of their doctors, whom they had sent to the schools of Wirtemberg, and Basil on purpose to study the Original languages: it was printed in Moravia in 1539. The judicious Selden, in his Tabletalk, speaking of the Bible, says, "The best translation in the world, and renders the sense of the Original best; taking in for the English translation the Bishops' Bible, as well as king James's
Prophet, Prophetess, Prophecy - The older Gesenius Lexicon edited by Tregelles hypothecated that the noun "prophet" came from the verb naba [1], in which the Original final letter, ayin , was softened into an aleph ( naba [1]); this verb meant "to bubble up" or "boil forth. If the noun nabi [1]1, "prophet, " is the Original form, then the suggestion of W. Even though this call does not come until we are six chapters into the book, it is not to be concluded, as some interpreters have complained, that this was not Isaiah's Original call, for part of the call of God was in the desperate spiritual vacuum that had grown up in Israel. ...
Therefore, the predictive sections of biblical prophecy exhibit certain key characteristics: (1) they are not isolated sayings, but are organically related to the whole of prophecy; (2) they plainly foretell things to come rather than being clothed in such abstruse terminology that they could be proven true even if the opposite of what they appear to say happens; (3) they are designed to be predictions and are not accidental or unwitting predictions; (4) they are written and published before the event, so that it could not be said that it was a matter of human sagacity that determined this would take place; (5) they are fulfilled in accordance with the Original utterance, unless expressly attached to a condition; and (6) they do not work out their own fulfillment, but stand as a verbal witness until the event takes place
Apocrypha - The Original work (chapters 3–14) affords significant evidence of the melancholy condition into which Jewish Messianic hopes had sunk during the gloomy interval between the destruction of Jerusalem and the rise of Bar-Cochba, the reign of Domitian (a. Its Christian interpolations do not materially hinder us from discovering the Original text. Here all we can say of the subject is that the allegorizing is very vivid, so vivid as to be on the verge of the mythopœic, but still in the Original intention of the writer not meant to be more than the glorification of a great quality found primarily in God, impressed on nature, and commended to mankind as a highly desirable attainment. The imagination would so vividly realize the allegorical picture that the idea would seem to assume form and body, condensing to an apparently concrete and even personal presence, so that it would be regarded for the time being as a person, and yet in the course of the meditation this would melt again into an abstraction, and in the less imaginative passages be regarded in its Original character purely as a mode of thought or action. Here we have a curious parallel to the Johannine conception of the Word Originally with God and then becoming incarnate and dwelling with men
Trinity - The doctrine itself bears such striking internal marks of a divine Original, and is so very unlikely to have been the invention of mere human reason that there is no way of accounting for the general adoption of so singular a belief, but by supposing that it was revealed by God to the early patriarchs, and that it was transmitted by them to their posterity. In its progress, indeed, to remote countries, and to distant generations, this belief became depraved and corrupted in the highest degree; and he alone who brought "life and immortality to light," could restore it to its Original simplicity and purity. From this word the Pagan title of Iao and Jove is, with the greatest probability, supposed to have been Originally formed; and in the Golden Verses of Pythagoras, there is an oath still extant to this purpose, "By Him who has the four letters. The Chaldee Paraphrasts translate the Original Hebrew text by Mimra da Jehovah, literally, "the word of Jehovah," a term totally different, as Bishop Kidder has incontestably proved, in its signification, and in its general application among the Jews, from the Hebrew dabar, which simply means a discourse or decree, and is properly rendered by pithgam. The error was propagated from age to age through a long succession of despots, and at length Judaic apostasy arrived at such a pitch of profane absurdity, as to affirm that very phraseology to be borrowed from man which was the Original and peculiar language of the Divinity
Language of the nt - (1) NT writers were steeped in the language of the Greek OT, a translation which largely followed the Hebrew Original with slavish literalness. Help derived from Modern Greek, and from reconstructed Aramaic Originals . The possibility of reconstructing to some extent the Original of our Greek Gospel sources is drawing nearer; and the co-operation of Greek and Semitic scholars promises marked advances in our knowledge of the very kernel of the NT (cf
Tares - have worked over the same Original parable, Mt. ’s parable and the Original parable, the companion of the Net, while the explanation is from the same editor’s hand
Nineveh - At Kileh Sherghat is the presumed Original capital," Asshur," 60 miles S. the rest is nothing!" The language of its inscriptions is Semitic, for the main population was a colony of Asshur, son of Shem; and besides the prevalent Semitic a Turanian dialect has been found on tablets at Koyunjik, derived from its Original Cushite founder Nimrod of Babylon and his band
Hebrews, the Epistle to the - Clement of Alexandria refers it to Paul, on the authority of Pantaenus of Alexandria (in the middle of the second century) saying that as Jesus is called the "apostle" to the Hebrew, Paul does not in it call himself so, being apostle to the Gentiles; also that Paul prudently omitted his name at the beginning, because the Hebrew were prejudiced against him; that it was Originally written in Hebrew for the Hebrew, and that Luke translated it into Greek for the Greeks, whence the style resembles that of Acts. The interweaving of the Septuagint peculiarities into the argument proves that the Greek epistle is an Original, not a translation. The Hebrew Old Testament would have been quoted, had the Original epistle been Hebrew...
Pauline authorship. Rome Originally received this epistle through Clement of Rome, then rejected it, until in the fourth century she saw her error: a refutation of her claim to unchangeableness and infallibility
Repentance - Repentance (μετάνοια) is one of two words used in the NT, both of which Originally denoted a change of mind of any sort. This is equally true of the sermons of the Original apostles and of St. Further, he does not lay great emphasis on the Original and simple change of attitude in his converts
Justice - In Daniel 4:37 ‘His ways are judgment,’ the Original is dîn . In Exodus 18:13-27 we have what purports to be the Original institution of the administration of justice by the elders of clans, Moses himself acting in the capacity of a kind of court of appeal ( Exodus 18:26 ); it is, of course, quite possible that, so far as Israel was concerned, this account is historically true, but the institution must have been much older than the time of Moses, and in following Jethro’s guidance, Moses was probably only re-instituting a régime which had long existed among his nomad forefathers
Life - We find the ground of this feeling in the view that God is not only the Original Creator or Source of life, but directly its Sustainer in all its forms ( Psalms 36:6 , Psalms 104:1-35 ; Psalms 145:1-21 passim ). equivalent of three terms used in the Original (1) zôç
Gods And Goddesses, Pagan - Original meaning of the name is unknown but the Old Testament form, Baal-zebub, means "Lord of the flies"; in Jesus' day this god is derisively called Beel-zebul (NIV Beelzebub), "lord of dung, " and identified with Satan, the ruler of demons (Matthew 12:24 ). Enlil was the Original chief god until the Code of Hammurabi and the Creation Epic focused on Marduk instead
Revelation, Idea of - Such a reflection helps anchor our understanding and use of Scripture in the religious veneration and doctrinal authority of the Bible books in their Original communities, which reaches its remarkable climax in the use made of the Old Testament Scriptures by Jesus himself, which set the pattern for the Christian understanding of both Old and New Testaments. The conventional and reasonable response has been to focus on the "original" text, the autograph of the human author
Mockery - Even if Original in Mk. Frazer urges as an objection to this that, while it is possible that the Saturnalia may have been celebrated in Jerusalem at what seems to have been its Original date in March, it is much more likely that it was really held in December, which, of course, does not harmonize with the time of year at which the Crucifixion took place. Originally Haman and Mordecai were the same, but one personated the dead and the other the risen deity
the Angel of the Church of Ephesus - When that great genius and great saint comes upon the Nicolaitans in these Epistles, he has an Original way of interpretation all his own. And not the Nicolaitans of Ephesus only; but the Egyptians, and the Babylonians, and as often as the name of any "enemy" occurs in the Old Testament, and it occurs in the Psalms continually, that so great and so Original man interprets and translates them all into his own sinful thoughts and sinful feelings and sinful words and sinful actions
Various Readings - ...
It must be borne in mind that from the time the New Testament was Originally written till about A. ...
All the above editions are very similar, but at this period more attention was called to the variations in the manuscripts, and they were carefully compared, with the laudable aim to discover what was the text as it stood Originally . ...
Besides the Greek manuscripts there are other helps by which to ascertain what was the Original Greek text. ...
From the above it may be conceived what labour was involved in the Original examination of so many witnesses for or against a reading
Man - ...
This noun is related to the verb 'âdom, “to be red,” and therefore probably relates to the Original ruddiness of human skin. Original knowledge, righteousness, and holiness are destroyed
Daniel - Special and extraordinary, Original and unparalleled seasons of prayer, when you literally do nothing else day nor night but pray. ' And Daniel was of Pascal's deep and Original mind
Creation - The term is therefore most generally applied to the Original production of the materials whereof the visible world is composed. We also see in these passages the rudiments of the Platonic philosophy, the eternal ideas in the divine mind, &c; and were any question to arise respecting the Original author of these notions, we should have little hesitation in giving it against the Greeks
Psalms the Book of - The titles or inscriptions of the Psalms are not by the Original authors, but belong to an early age
Hebrew - While most nouns were derived from a verbal root, some were Original nouns which gave rise to verbs (denominatives)
Reuben - ’ The names given here must be the Original names, as it is improbable that the author would allow the worshippers of Jahweh to couple with the names of their cities the gods Nebo and Baal
Lord's Day - The Sabbath was Originally instituted as a provision for deep physical and spiritual needs of human nature. Our Lord found the Original institution almost hidden beneath a mass of traditional regulations. The Acts shows us that the Christians who were Originally Jews observed both the Sabbath and the Christian Lord’s Day ( Acts 21:20 f
Nazirite - This, then, seems to have been the Original observance. ...
The Nazirite vow was Originally a life-long obligation
Ransom - Hollmann has sought by elaborate investigation to discover the Aramaic term of which λύτρον is the equivalent; he thinks that this inquiry results more favourably for the idea of ‘liberating’ than of ‘covering’ in the Hebrew Original (Die Bedeutung des Todes Jesu, Tübingen, 1901, p
Monk - " This Original of monks seems to have been this: The persecutions which attended the first ages of the Gospel forced some Christians to retire from the world, and live in deserts and places most private and unfrequented, in hopes of finding that peace and comfort among beasts, which were denied them among men; and this being the case of some very extraordinary persons, their example gave such reputation to retirement, that the practice was continued when the reason of its commencement ceased
Vine - The "gathering out of the stones" answers to God's dislodging the Original inhabitants before Israel, and the "fencing" to God's protection of Israel from surrounding enemies
Hosea - He declares throughout that a return to Jehovah is the only remedy for the evils existing and impending: the calf worship at Bethel, established by Jeroboam, must be given up (Hosea 8:5-6; Hosea 10:5; Hosea 13:2); unrighteousness toward men, the necessary consequence of impiety towards God, must cease, or sacrifices are worthless (Hosea 4:2; Hosea 6:6, based on Samuel's Original maxim, 1 Samuel 15:22). No more remarkable prophecy exists of Israel's anomalous and extraordinary state for thousands of years, and of her future restoration, than Hosea 3:4-5; "Israel shall abide many days without a king (which they so craved for Originally), without a sacrifice (which their law requires as essential to their religion), without an image
Raca - The words of Jeremiah are understood in this passage as a prediction of the slaughter of the Innocents, but in their Original connexion they refer to a historical incident in the prophet’s own life

Kindness - In all these passages (except Acts 27:3; Acts 28:2, where it renders φιλανθρώπως, φιλανθρωπία, Titus 2:5, where it renders ἀγαθός, and 2 Peter 1:7, where ‘brotherly kindness’ renders φιλαδελφία) the Original has χρηστός, χρηστότης, χρηστεύειν
Marriage (ii.) - According to the Original Divine purpose, man and wife were no longer two persons but one flesh
Stephen - The first line is this-that the Original covenant made between God and Israel was concluded not with Moses but long before with Abraham and the patriarchs, and, since the Mosaic covenant had been thus preceded by an earlier and more spiritual one, it might also be followed by a later and more spiritual one (‘A covenant confirmed beforehand by God, the law, which came four hundred and thirty years after, doth not disannul, so as to make the promise of none effect’ (Galatians 3:17)
Silas or Silyanus - As this implies the presence of Silas again at Antioch, it may be supposed that Paul has sent for him to Jerusalem, or that he has returned of his own accord after reporting to the primitive Church the fulfilment of his Original mission; Acts 15:34 (Authorized Version , ‘it pleased Silas to abide there still’), which appears with variations in some ancient Manuscripts , is generally regarded as a gloss
Creation - 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

Water - ...
First, “water” is one of the Original basic substances
Angels of the Seven Churches - ’ Even on the supposition that the Ethiopic version, supported by some Greek Manuscripts , is a correct translation of the Original, and the simple word ‘Church’ is substituted for ‘angel of the Christian Church,’ we are confronted by the primitive identification of the Church and its angel (see Charles, Asc
Nazareth - But because his countrymen had no faith in him, and were offended at the meanness of his Original, he did not many miracles here, Matthew 13:54 ; Matthew 13:58 , nor would he dwell in the city
Monk - The Original of monks seems to have been this: The persecutions which attended the first ages of the Gospel forced some Christians to retire from the world, and live in deserts and places more private and unfrequented, in hopes of finding that peace and comfort among beasts which were denied them among men; and this being the case of some very extraordinary persons, their example gave such reputation to retirement, that the practice was continued when the reason of its commencement ceased

Sanctification - Neither was so distorted by the fall so as to obliterate God's Original purpose and design completely. ...
God sought Adam and Eve, indicating that restoration of the Original purpose would be undertaken by him. Its purpose for unbelievers is to show them how far from the Original design they have come
Genealogies of Jesus Christ - For about 460 years, from David to the Captivity, we have 14 names, and know there should be 18; for about 590 years, from the Captivity to Christ, we have, against all reasonable probability, only 13 (perhaps Originally 14) names. This Original document may or may not have ended ‘Joseph begat Jesus’ (Ἰωσὴφ δὲ ἐγέννησεν τὸν Ἰησοῦν): it is perhaps the easiest solution of the difficulties of this verse to suppose that, if it did so end, the compiler omitted the last step, as in conflict with his belief in the Virgin-birth, and added a note to the previous step to explain the relation in which Jesus stood to Joseph. He discusses fully the reading in Matthew 1:16, and concludes that we cannot look on the reading of the Sinaitic Syriac (‘Jacob begat Joseph; Joseph, to whom was betrothed Mary the Virgin, begat Jesus, who is called the Christ’) as containing traces of an Original text. If, therefore, the compiler followed a pedigree ready to hand, he did so only as far as the step ‘Jacob begat Joseph’; and textual criticism will not help us to reconstruct the presumed Original document beyond that point
Holiness Purity - -The Original idea is stated by A. Jahweh, as holy, in Hebrew thought is not Originally opposed to the universe, but rather is guarded or guards Himself, on the one hand against the arrogance and presumption of man (1 Samuel 6:20) and, on the other, against the false deity of the national gods (Joshua 4:19 ff. ...
The real antithesis to ‘holy’ in this Original sense is, therefore, ‘profane’ or ‘common’ (ḥôl, βέβηλος, lit. ἄγιος is applied to God, or to the ‘name’ of God (Luke 1:49, Revelation 4:8), In both these usages the significance is the same, and recalls the Original meaning
Papyri And Ostraca - ...
Suppose for a moment that chance excavations in an absolutely dry mound of rubbish were to lead to the discovery of whole bundles of Original private letters, contracts, wills, judicial reports, etc. Then comes a long series of other early Christian Original letters in Greek and Coptic, from the 3rd cent. Centuries that had long been supposed to be knowable only from the folios of Fathers of the Church are made to live again by these Original documents documents of whose complete naïveté and singleness of purpose there can be no doubt. The existence of Semiticisms in the Greek Bible is of course not denied by recent Biblical investigators in the books translated from Semitic Originals they are really numerous but the number of Semiticisms has been considerably reduced, and in proportion as the Semitic character of the NT recedes, its popular character is made to advance
Christianity - We have therefore to ask, What was precisely the nature of the religion founded by Christ as recorded in the Gospels and Epistles? Has it remained in substance the same without fundamental change? If, as is obvious, it has markedly altered during a long period of growth and expansion, has its development been legitimate or illegitimate? That is, has the Original type been steadfastly maintained, or has it been seriously perverted? Is a norm fairly ascertainable and a return to type from time to time possible?...
iii. According to Newman’s theory, the Original germs of doctrine and worship were developed normally and legitimately as determined by the criteria he specifies—Preservation of type, Continuity of Principle, Power of assimilation, Logical sequence, and the rest. Had the growth of fifteen hundred years in doctrine, worship, and organization simply made explicit what was implicit in the New Testament; or were the accretions to the Original faith excrescences, exaggerations, or more serious corruptions; and how was a line to be drawn between false and true? The Reformation was a protest against abuses which had become ingrained in Catholicism. The Reformers claimed to be returning to Original principles—to the New Testament instead of the Church; to justification by faith instead of salvation by baptism, absolution, and the Mass; and to direct acknowledgment of the Headship of Christ instead of blind submission to the edicts of His vicar upon earth
Originality - ORIGINALITY. —It is not surprising that attempts should have been made to dispute Christ’s claim to Originality. Under whichever aspect we regard His Person, whether we consider Him in His historical relations, or contemplate the eternal truth revealed in Him, on either side opportunity presents itself for disputing the Originality of His doctrine. And under this aspect of the Saviour’s doctrine the question presents itself, whether it may not be sufficiently accounted for on the lines of a natural development of the religious tendencies of the age in which He lived, and whether He has indeed contributed anything new and Original to the religious history of the world. ...
But, on the other hand, the tendency to emphasize the eternal truth revealed in the Person of Christ, while it seems to rebut such attempts to reduce His doctrine to the product of the religions developments of the age in which He lived, may lead indirectly to the challenging of His Originality from another side. The very fact that the truth which Christ proclaimed is eternal, may be regarded as a proof that He can lay no claim to Originality in the declaration of it. ’ It is easy to understand how, from this point of view, arguments might be urged against the Originality of Christ, in a spirit very different from that which animates Augustine in his remark. And on the strength of the occasional points of resemblance, which have been thus collected, between the teaching of the Saviour and that of those who have gone before Him, the Originality of Christ has been disputed, and His claim to be the founder of a new religion denied. ...
We propose to consider some of the attempts which have thus been made from different sides to prove the indebtedness of Christ to those who preceded Him, and to discuss the worth of the charge of want of Originality based upon the evidence thus adduced. In some of the cases we have to consider, it is the question of the Originality not so much of Christ as of Christianity that is involved, as the Person of Christ is either left out of account as a pure piece of fiction, or reduced to such mean proportions as rob it of all historical significance. But inasmuch as in such cases the attempt is made to disprove the Originality of that religious movement which we, at any rate, associate with the Person of Christ, we may fitly consider them here, so far, at least, as the criticism in question involves the doctrine of the Master as distinguished from the Apostles. Still, In some cases the correspondence between the NT parallels and the Original utterances of Seneca is so close, that Bauer is of opinion that the NT authors must have had the writings of the Roman sage before them. —From the side of Buddhism, also, attacks have been made on the Originality of Christianity. ...
To account for the presence of so much material in the Gospels borrowed front Buddhist sources, Seydel formulates the hypothesis that, in addition to the two sources generally recognized as underlying the Synoptic Gospels—the collection of Sayings, and the Original Mark—there must also have existed a third source, a poetic-apocalyptic Gospel, in which the Christian material must have been worked up after the pattern of the Buddhist Gospels, with the incorporation of much that was derived from Buddhist sources. If we claim Originality for Him, we recognize that Originality does not mean an entirely new start, the severance of all the links which bind the new Teacher to the religious development of the nation to which He belongs. Such Originality is an idle figment of the imagination. If the Original teacher is to be a teacher at all, if he is to exercise any influe
Theodorus, Bishop of Mopsuestia - Julian's visit was doubtless the occasion upon which Theodore wrote his book Against the Defenders of Original Sin . Fragments of the Greek Original survive in the catena of Nicephorus (Lips. More recently attention has been called to a Syriac version (Baethgen), and new fragments of a Latin version and of the Original Greek have been printed. In the Original it reached the prodigious length of 25 (Phot. Augustinum defendentem Originale peccatum et Adam per transgressionem mortalem factum catholice disserentem
Judas Iscariot (2) - ), but argues that it cannot be part of the Original text. ) thinks that Ἰσκαριώθ was the Original reading, and points back to the Hebrew, whilst ὁ ἁπὸ Καριώτου corresponds to the equivalent Aramaic דִּקִרִיוֹת or דְּמִן קְרִיוֹת Hence the surname Iseariot probably means ‘a Kariothite. But the definite article is not found with this phrase in any other passage in the Gospels; moreover, it is almost impossible to believe that when the Gospels were written the assertion that Judas was ‘the chief’ or even primus inter pares had a place in the Original text. ) of the disciples; perhaps it was Originally the question of Judas, though St. ‘To suppose that Judas is now brought before us as one Originally doomed to perdition, and that his character was but the evolving of his doom, would contradict not only the meaning of the Hebraic expression “son of” (which always takes for granted moral choice), but the whole teaching of this Gospel
Birth of Christ - 1 and 2, he has also introduced touches acceptable to a Greek, and that one word, in common use to-day, was wanting in the Original Christian phraseology, the word ‘Saviour. 23) to admit that the whole of the story of Simeon is told in a strongly Hebraistic style, he maintains that it is not said that the Original motive of the incident is also of Hebrew origin. ...
(c) If the interpolator of these two verses in question had done his work so ‘clearly and effectively’ as Schmiedel maintains, it is surely surprising that he should have allowed any of those passages in the Original document to stand which could refer in any way to Joseph’s parentage
Adam - Not that it could be a matter of more difficulty to Omnipotence to create man than any thine beside; but principally, it is probable, because he was to be the lord of the whole and therefore himself accountable to the Original proprietor; and was to be the subject of another species of government, a moral administration; and to be constituted an image of the intellectual and moral perfections, and of the immortality of the common Maker. ...
The notion that the Original resemblance of man to God must be placed in some one essential quality, is not consistent with holy writ, from which alone we can derive our information on this subject. Man, therefore, in his Original state, was sinless, both in act and in principle
Hebrews, Epistle to - Whether, however, this conclusion was based on sound traditional evidence or was merely arrived at from the internal character of the writing itself, must be left to research or conjecture; for we must not suppose that the words ‘to Hebrews’ form any part of the Original document. Paul wrote it Originally in Hebrew, suppressing his name from motives of expediency, and that St. A formidable array, however, of NT critics, especially Continental, now advocate the theory that, in spite of appearances to the contrary, the Original readers of our Epistle were Gentiles or mainly Gentiles ( e
Tombs - ...
The present chamber in the church of the Holy Sepulchre was formed when the church was built, by cutting away a portion of the Original tomb chamber so as to leave a sort of cave, and the floor was leveled at the same time. " The fact that the locuhs tomb was formed out of an Original koka tomb, whereas our Lord's loculus tomb was a "new" one "wherein was man never yet laid" (John 19:41), seems to be fatal to the claim of the so-called Holy Sepulchre, independently of the argument of its having been probably inside the walls
Corinthians, Second Epistle to - There is no ground for supposing that the letter is not now in its Original form. Our authorities for the text are early enough to make us question the possibility of a sufficient time elapsing for so serious a modification of the Original text
Lord (2) - in that part of the Gospel which is regarded by critical editors as not belonging to the Original Manuscripts . The variation of title in addressing Jesus suggests that in the Original language of the Gospels at least two titles were employed
Peter - Nature herself, as we call her, had, with her ever-bountiful and Original hands, stamped his supremacy upon Peter before he was born. And when he came to be a disciple of Jesus Christ he entered on, and continued to hold, that natural and aboriginal supremacy over all inferior men, till a still more superior and supreme man arose and took Peter's supremacy away from him. Peter was naturally and constitutionally of the enthusiastic temperament, and his conversion and call to the discipleship did not decompose or at all suppress his true nature; the primal elements of his character remained, and the Original balance and the proportion of those elements remained
Jews - The land had to be taken by force from the Original inhabitants

Not just the Original disciples but all disciples are changed because of Jesus’ resurrection (Ephesians 2:5-6; Revelation 1:17-18)

Unicorn - Good says, "the Original reem, by all the older translators rendered rhinoceros, or unicorn, is by some modern writers supposed to be the bubalus, bison, or wild ox
Creation - The term is therefore most generally applied to the Original production of the materials whereof the visible world is composed
Work - In the Original languages of the Bible, the word ‘work’ had a broad meaning. As a result of sin, people lost the spiritual power that God Originally gave, so that the physical creation, which was intended for their enjoyment, became the means of their torment
Quirinius - We might suppose that the clause Luke 2:2 was not in the Original narrative, but was a marginal date inserted by an early copyist, who made a mistake as to the census intended; but the Manuscripts afford no warrant for this suggestion
Wisdom of Christ - In the growth of the child Jesus, God saw for the first time human nature expanding and perfecting itself according to its Original ideal and plan, unhindered and undistorted by sin; and upon the gracious spectacle God and man looked with approval (Luke 2:40; Luke 2:52)
Capital Punishment - Has the Lord spoken forever against eating rare meat and for executing killer animals? Is it sound biblical interpretation if we interpret “by man shall his blood be shed” as a divine command for capital punishment yet consistently ignore the other commands in the context in which it is found?...
How do we explain the Lord's protection of Cain in Genesis 4:15 where a “mark” was placed on him to fend off self-appointed executioners? God's grace spared the Original first-degree murderer

Doxology - —It can no longer be doubted that this was not a part of the prayer as it stood Originally in Matthew. Of this final doxology the Original source may have been 1 Chronicles 29:11, which shaped the Synagogue usage and thereby that of the Christian Church
Fruit (2) - The Original application of the parable is, doubtless, to the scribes and the chief priests who rejected Jesus, but it is equally applicable to any who think they can do as they please with their life and ignore all obligations to the Giver and Lord
Vulgate, the - " The evils could only be remedied by going back to the Original Greek
Evil - Samuel Clarke, in his "Demonstration of the Being and Attributes of God," deduces from the possibility and real existence of human liberty an answer to the question, What is the cause and Original of evil? For liberty, he says, implying a natural power of doing evil, as well as good; and the imperfect nature of finite beings making it possible for them to abuse this their liberty to an actual commission of evil; and it being necessary to the order and beauty of the whole, and for displaying the infinite wisdom of the Creator, that there should be different and various degrees of creatures, whereof, consequently, some must be less perfect than others; hence there necessarily arises a possibility of evil, notwithstanding that the Creator is infinitely good
Paul - " In them we observe the transforming and elevating power of grace in one Originally turbulent and passionate-making him a model of many and Christian excellence; fearless and firm, yet considerate, courteous, and gentle; magnanimous, patriotic, and selfsacrificing; rich in all noble sentiments and affections. These epistles, in which the principles of Christianity are developed for all periods, characters, and circumstances, are among the most important of the primitive documents of the Christian religion, even apart from their inspired character; and although they seem to have been written without special premeditation, and have reference mostly to transient circumstances and temporary relations, yet they everywhere bear the stamp of the great and Original mind of the apostle, as purified, elevated, and sustained by the influences of the Holy Spirit

Baptism - The Original meaning of ‘baptize’ was ‘dip’ or ‘immerse’, suggesting that believers were immersed in water
Doxology - —It can no longer be doubted that this was not a part of the prayer as it stood Originally in Matthew. Of this final doxology the Original source may have been 1 Chronicles 29:11, which shaped the Synagogue usage and thereby that of the Christian Church
Stephanus i., Bishop of Rome - " Cyprian's answer was: "As to your custom, however old, it is a corrupt one, and not primitive; no custom can be set against truth, to get at which we must go back to the Original fountain
Zephyrinus - In addition to this testimony of Tertullian (whose treatise against Praxeas, written in the time of Zephyrinus, has been supposed, not without reason, to have been directed against the reigning pope as much as against the Original heresiarch) we have that of the Refutation of all Heresies , attributed to HIPPOLYTUS, a learned writer of great note in his day, whose real ecclesiastical position is still open to discussion
Aristion (Aristo) - as the Original ending). ), that the Appendix to Mark is not the Original full narrative, but an excerpt, constitutes the next step in the solution of our problem. 758) had access to it in a fuller, more Original form; for he adds after v
Religion (2) - Thus Schleiermacher in his Reden über die Religion has nothing to say on religious authority, and in a chapter on the nature of religion practically identifies revelation with intuition and Original feeling (p. The OT provided Him not only with illustrations of His own Original thought (Matthew 12:39-42, Luke 4:25-27), but with canons of judgment and standards of authority (Matthew 5:18), and even with personal assurance in the time of moral temptation (Matthew 4:4; Matthew 4:7; Matthew 4:10) and of mortal weakness (Matthew 27:46, Luke 23:46). In this medium, too, much of the pure impression of the Original production is lost. Whether they were Originally offered in fear of malevolent deities, or in commemoration of the ghosts of the departed, or to renew the covenant of a tribe with its proper deity, does not greatly matter
Trial of Jesus - —The question whether Jesus was legally condemned to death starts an interesting problem in historical jurisprudence, but it was not present to the minds of the Evangelists or of the Original reporters of the Passion; and this, combined with the condensed, fragmentary, and even discrepant character of their traditions, renders it extremely difficult to answer the question with any confidence in the affirmative or the negative. But this does not necessarily prove that it is more Original, for St. ...
The traditional order of the text in John 18, however, does not appear to represent the Original
God - 165) perhaps to have been Originally the name of a Canaanite deity, but applied to the true God. What it Originally signified is uncertain; the root from which it is derived might mean ‘to blow’ or ‘to breathe,’ or ‘to fall,’ or ‘to be. 409), the important thing for us to know is not what the name meant Originally, but what it came actually to denote to the Israelites. This name seems Originally to have referred to God’s presence with the armies of Israel in the times of the monarchy; as fuller conceptions of God became prevalent, the name received an ampler meaning. The descriptions written so many centuries later are necessarily coloured by the ideas of the author’s age, and we have to depend largely on the survival of old customs in historical times customs which had often acquired a new meaning, or of which the Original meaning was forgotten. But, on the other hand, the Second Commandment need not have formed part of the Original Decalogue; and there is a very general opinion that the making of images of Jahweh was thought unobjectionable up to the 8th cent. , though Kautzsch believes that images of wood and stone were preferred to metal ones because of the Canaanitish associations of the latter ( Exodus 34:17 , but see Judges 17:3 ); he thinks also that the fact of the Ark being the shrine of Jahweh and representing His presence points to its having contained an image of Jahweh (but see § 3 above), and that the ephod was Originally an image of Jahweh ( Judges 8:26 f. β ); even the common use of the plural name ‘Elohim,’ whatever its Original significance (see § 2 above), would necessarily prepare them for the doctrine of distinctions in the Godhead, as would the quasi- personification of ‘the Word’ and ‘Wisdom’, as in Proverbs, Job, Wisdom, Sirach, and in the later Jewish writers, who not only personified but deified them (Scott, in Hastings’ DB Man - In Romans 7 he recognizes no ‘original sin,’ no hereditary influence even, as active in producing the captivity from which the Spirit of Christ delivers. But when we read that ‘through one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners’ (Romans 5:19), we must not assume with Augustine that this refers to the peccatum Originale handed down by the inherent concupiscentia of the sexual act; nor must we be influenced unconsciously by the popular science of to-day, so as to imagine that there is a reference to heredity. It should be noted that contemporary Jewish theology gives no sufficient warrant for ascribing a doctrine of ‘original sin’ to St. Paul would postulate the Original mortality of human nature, with a potential immortality lost through sin (Romans 5:12)
Job - ]'>[4] as restored to its Original form by means of the Sahidic translation first published in 1889. A few have found in this shorter edition the Original text of the book, but most ascribe the minus of the LXX Ascension of Isaiah - Further, the Original was probably written in Hebrew. The fusion of the three Originally distinct conceptions of the Antichrist, of Beliar, and of Nero Redivivus cannot well be put earlier than a. ) are probably Original to the work. The title ‘Son of Man’ in the Latin and Slavonic versions of 11:1 is probably Original, and was excluded by the editor of the present Greek version for doctrinal reasons (see Charles, Asc
Mahometanism - He entrusted his beloved wife, Raphsa, the daughter of Omar, with the keeping of the chest of his apostleship, in which were laid up all the Originals of the revelations he pretended to have received by the ministration of the Angel Gabriel, and out of which the Koran, consisting of one hundred and fourteen surats, or chapters, of very unequal length, was composed after his death. Far from supporting its arrogant claim to a supernatural work, it sinks below the level of many compositions confessedly of human Original; and still lower does it fall when compared with that pure and perfect pattern which we justly admire in the Scriptures of truth. Here, too, may be traced the grand and Original outlines of that sensual paradise, and those luxurious enjoyments, which were so successfully employed in the Koran, to gratify the ardent genius of the Arabs, and allure them to the standard of the prophet. Of these, however, the merit is to be ascribed, not to the feeble imitation, but to the great and perfect Original from which they were manifestly drawn
Peter - ’ Both names seem to have been employed, and usually with discrimination, by Jews in the Hellenistic period; but ‘Simon’ was the more common, and this in all probability was the Apostle’s Original name. Paul being especially commissioned to carry on this temporary enterprise of evangelizing the Gentiles, but the Original and fundamental task was still Peter’s. It fell to Peter’s lot to engage in the work of preserving, or restoring, the Original branches, a work with which St
Ordination - , which are derived from a common Original that is perhaps of the time of Hippolytus, we can conjecturally determine the ordination prayer of the lost Original. But his phrase in Luke 13:3 must mean that Symeon, Lucius, and Manaen (and possibly other prophets and teachers, if any unnamed ones were present) Papias, Bishop of Hierapolis - Matthew's Gospel had been Originally written in Hebrew, and St. Matthew and Mark, but to their unknown Originals; and accordingly many constantly speak of "the Original Matthew," the "Ur-Marcus," though there is no particle of evidence beyond what may be extracted from this passage of Papias that there ever was any Gospel by SS. Matthew had written it; that the Greek Matthew was but an unauthorized translation from a Hebrew Original which individuals had translated, each for himself as he could. The ultimate Original of this story of Papias was a Jewish apocryphal book made known by Ceriani, Monumenta Sac
Isaiah, Book of - 1 35 which are of post-exilic origin (see below) as interpolations rather than as what, in many cases at least, they probably are, Original parts of the booklets incorporated in chs. There is no reason for believing that the present arrangement of this matter, even within the several booklets, goes back to Isaiah himself; the division into chapters and verses is of course of very much later origin, and in several cases does violence to the Original connexion, either by uniting, as in ch. 5, Originally quite distinct pieces, or dividing, as in the case of Isaiah 9:8 to Isaiah 10:4 , what formed an undivided whole
Entry Into Jerusalem - seems the Original. ...
Dalman suggests that the Original cry of the people was ‘Hosanna, Blessed in the name of J" Confession (of Christ) - A corresponding twofold use of terms meets us in the Original, the verbs ὁμολογέω and ἐξομολογέω being used to denote both confession of sin and confession of faith (e. There can be little doubt that the so-called Apostles’ Creed was Originally a baptismal confession. And Hort, Harnack, and others have shown that what is known as the Nicene Creed is in reality not the Original creed of the bishops of Nicaea, but a creed which gradually grew up in the East out of the struggles of the Church with varying shapes of heresy, and the nucleus of which is probably to be sought in the baptismal formula of the Jerusalem Church (Hort, two Dissertations, ii
Dress - fairly reflect a similar wealth of terminology in the Original Hebrew and Greek, more especially the former. ’çzôr ), Originally a strip of skin or cloth wrapped round the loins and fastened with a knot. and Deuteronomy 24:13 ; Deuteronomy 24:17 on the one hand, and Numbers 15:38 and Deuteronomy 22:12 on the other, are compared in the Original, it will be found that three terms are used indiscriminately for the ordinary upper garment of the Hebrews, and, further, that this garment had four corners , to each of which a tassel had to be attached (see more fully Fringes) a detail which suggests a plain four-cornered plaid like the himation , not a made-up garment like the chitôn or the ‘aba
Peter (2) - At the same time, he indicates clearly that the Apostle’s Original name was ‘Simon’ (John 1:42), and he places this name on the lips of Jesus just as the other Evangelists do (John 1:43). Why, if Peter is the rock, did not Jesus simply say ‘on thee’? Whence, too, the distinction in the present text between the two words for ‘rock’ (πέτρος and πέτρα), a distinction which must surely have been found in some form in the Original Aramaic? But be the rock Peter himself or his confession, it is clear that our Lord was deeply gratified with the declaration, and that He recognized in it a spiritual insight and capacity which qualified the speaker for high office and service in the Kingdom of God
Pseudo-Chrysostomus - ...
It has been questioned whether the Original language of this commentary were Greek or Latin but it appears to us that it was certainly Latin. His fanciful interpretations of Scripture though including some few of what may be called patristical commonplaces seem to be mostly Original
