Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Word
WORD . Apart from the personal use of ‘Word’ as a title of Christ (see Logos), its Biblical interpretation presents few difficulties. Both in the OT and in the NT the original terms employed may pass from the meaning ‘speech’ to signify ‘the subject matter of speech.’ In some passages there is uncertainty as to whether the tr. [1] should be ‘word’ or ‘thing.’ For example, 1 Kings 11:41 RVm [1]4 has ‘or words , or matters ’ as alternatives to ‘the acts of Solomon.’ In Acts 8:21 ‘thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter’ probably means’ in the matter in dispute,’ which was the coveted power of imparting the gifts of the Holy Spirit; but the RVm [1]4 ‘word’ is preferred by some expositors, who think that the reference is to the word preached by the Apostles and its attendant blessings (cf. Mark 1:45 , Luke 1:2 ). The EV [4] retains ‘word’ in Matthew 18:16 and 2 Corinthians 13:1 , although Deuteronomy 19:15 reads: ‘At the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall every matter be established.’
J. G. Tasker.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Word, the
(Gr. Logos), one of the titles of our Lord, found only in the writings of John (John 1:1-14 ; 1 John 1:1 ; Revelation 19:13 ). As such, Christ is the revealer of God. His office is to make God known. "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him" (John 1:18 ). This title designates the divine nature of Christ. As the Word, he "was in the beginning" and "became flesh." "The Word was with God " and "was God," and was the Creator of all things (Compare Ps.33: 6; 107:20; 119:89; 147:18; Isaiah 40:8 ).
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Word of God
(Hebrews 4:12 , etc.). The Bible so called because the writers of its several books were God's organs in communicating his will to men. It is his "word," because he speaks to us in its sacred pages. Whatever the inspired writers here declare to be true and binding upon us, God declares to be true and binding. This word is infallible, because written under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and therefore free from all error of fact or doctrine or precept. (See INSPIRATION; BIBLE .) All saving knowledge is obtained from the word of God. In the case of adults it is an indispensable means of salvation, and is efficacious thereunto by the gracious influence of the Holy Spirit (John 17:17 ; 2 Timothy 3:15,16 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ).
Charles Buck Theological Dictionary - Hearing the Word of God
Is an ordinance of divine appointment, Romans 10:17 . Proverbs 8:4-5 . Mark 4:24 . Public reading of the Scriptures was a part of synagogue worship, Acts 13:15 . Acts 15:21 . and was the practice of the Christians in primitive times. Under the former dispensation there was a public hearing of the law at stated seasons, Deuteronomy 31:10 ; Deuteronomy 31:13 . Nehemiah 8:2-3 . It seems, therefore, that it is a duty incumbent on us to hear, and , if sensible of our ignorance, we shall also consider it our privilege. As to the manner of hearing, it should be constantly, Proverbs 8:34 . James 1:24-25 . Attentively, Luke 21:38 . Acts 10:33 . Luke 4:20 ; Luke 4:22 . With reverence, Psalms 89:7 . With faith, Hebrews 4:2 . With an endeavour to retain what we hear, Hebrews 2:1 . Psalms 119:11 . With an humble docile disposition, Luke 10:42 . With prayer, Luke 18:1-43 : the advantages of hearing are, information, 2 Timothy 3:16 . Conviction, 1 Corinthians 14:24-25 . Acts 2:1-47 : Conversion, Psalms 11:7 . Acts 4:4 .

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Word, the
(See JOHN; JESUS.) Christ's title, as the personal Revealer in Himself of the Godhead, even before His incarnation, involving personality (not merely the Intelligence of God) and Divinity. In the introduction of John's Gospel and that of his Epistle, and in his Revelation 19:13, at once with God and Himself God, by whom God made all things. Philo's Logos ("word") on the contrary excludes personality, and is identical at times with God, at other times with the world. By word man, who is in God's image, makes known his mind; so the Word is the outcome of God's essence (Hebrews 4:12-13; 1 Peter 1:25; Genesis 1:3); by the Word He made the universe (Psalms 33:6). The Medium of every external act of God (Hebrews 1:1-3) in the physical and spiritual creations.
Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Word
To the Israelites of Old Testament times, God’s word was not simply something written down or spoken out, but something active. It had within it the power of God, so that when God expressed his will, that will was carried out. When God said, ‘Let there be light’, there was light (Genesis 1:3). Through the active word of God, the universe was created (Genesis 1:3; Genesis 1:6; Genesis 1:9; Genesis 1:14; Genesis 1:20; Genesis 1:24; Genesis 1:26; Hebrews 11:3; 2 Peter 3:5). God’s word could not fail. Whatever it said would happen had to happen (Isaiah 55:10-11). God’s word had such life and power that people often thought of it almost as if it was a person – the living agent or messenger of God (Psalms 33:6; Psalms 107:20; Psalms 147:15; Psalms 147:18).
Jesus the Word
In the New Testament Jesus is called the Word (Greek: logos) (1 John 1:1-3). Greek philosophers of the first century used logos in reference to what they believed to be the principle of reason in the universe, but this is not necessarily the way the Bible uses the word. The word logos as used in the New Testament may contain some reference to the Greek ideas, but it is better understood in relation to the Old Testament meaning of ‘word’.
The Word of God is the living and active agent of God. It existed before creation and was the means by which God created. The New Testament shows that this Word is more than merely likened to a person, it is a person; no longer ‘it’, but ‘he’. He is not only with God, he is God. This Word is Jesus Christ, who came into the world as a human being. He is the living Word, the living expression of God. His words and deeds are the words and deeds of God (John 1:1-4; John 1:14; cf. Genesis 1:1; Genesis 1:3; Colossians 1:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 19:13; Revelation 19:16). (For details see JESUS CHRIST; SON OF GOD.)
The written and spoken Word
Because God has spoken to the world through Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is the Word. Similarly, because he has spoken through the Scriptures, the Scriptures are the Word (Psalms 119:105; Matthew 15:6; John 10:35). When, however, the Bible writers speak of the written or spoken Word of God, they are usually referring not to a one-volume book such as our Bible, but to the Word of God as announced or preached by God’s representatives. (For details of the Bible as the Word of God see INSPIRATION; SCRIPTURES.)
Prophets, for example, were God’s spokesmen, and their announcements were the authoritative Word of God for his people (Isaiah 1:2-4; Isaiah 1:18; Jeremiah 23:22; Ezekiel 1:3; Hosea 4:1; Joel 1:1; Amos 1:3; Hebrews 1:1-2; see PROPHECY). Likewise the preaching of the gospel by the New Testament apostles was the proclamation of the Word of God (Acts 4:31; Acts 13:44; Ephesians 1:13; Colossians 1:5-6; 1 Peter 1:23; 1 Peter 1:25; see GOSPEL; PREACHING). The instruction in Christian doctrine that followed was the teaching of the Word of God (Acts 18:11; Colossians 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 13:7; see TEACHER).
This spoken Word became also the written Word and, like the personal Word Jesus, was living and active. It is still living and active today, and does God’s work in the hearts and lives of those who hear it or read it (Hebrews 4:12).
Holman Bible Dictionary - Word
utterance or saying that may refer to a single work, the entire law, the gospel message, or even Christ.
Old Testament Dabar is the primary Hebrew expression for word. It has various meanings. It can refer to a spoken utterance, a saying, a command, a speech, a story—linguistic communication in general. Dabar can also mean a thing, event, or action ( Genesis 18:14 ). Occasionally, difficulty arises in distinguishing between these meanings (Psalm 35:20 NRSV, “deceitful words”; KJV, “deceitful matters”; REB, “intrigues”; NIV, “false accusations”). The frequent construction “the word of the Lord” or “the word of Yahweh” refers to communication made by God to people. The means of this communication are seldom related, nor must the phrase refer to a particular set of words. Three aspects of this word demand special attention.
1. A prophetic word. The prophets claimed to deliver the “word of God” (Jeremiah 1:9 ). For this purpose they were commissioned (Isaiah 6:8 ). This word of God addressed human beings and demanded a response. Thus God's word may be visualized as a great salvation (Isaiah 2:2-5 ) or a great judgment (Jeremiah 26:4-6 ).
2. A legal word. In the covenant law God spoke the words of the law to Moses (Exodus 20:1 ; Exodus 24:3-8 ). The heart of the law is called the ten words (Exodus 34:28 ; Deuteronomy 4:13 ). The entire law represents the will of God and so can be called a single “word” (Deuteronomy 4:2 KJV). This word also demands response: faithful obedience will bring God's blessing while disobedience will lead to a curse ( Deuteronomy 30:15-20 ).
3. Creative word. God created the world by His word (Genesis 1:1 ; Isaiah 48:13 ; Psalm 33:9 ). This world reveals God's majesty (Psalm 19:1 ) and thus extends the sphere of His revelation beyond His work with covenant Israel to all people. The word is spoken of as if it were a person who directs the events of nature (Psalm 147:15-18 ; Psalm 148:8 ), saves (Psalm 107:20 ), and gives life (Ezekiel 37:1-4 ).
New Testament Logos and Rhema are the two primary Greek words meaning “word.” They are used interchangeably and variously as with the Old Testament dabar . The New Testament can use these words to apply to Jesus' message, the message about Jesus, and Jesus Himself.
Jesus' message of the coming kingdom can be called a “word” ( Mark 2:2 ; Mark 4:33 ; Luke 5:1 ) as can His individual sayings (Matthew 26:75 ; Luke 22:61 ; John 7:36 ). Significantly, Jesus avoided citing rabbinic authorities or using the traditional language of a prophet who would claim “that the word of the Lord came to me” or declare “thus says the Lord.” Perhaps these phrases did not significantly honor His special relationship with the Father and His own authority (Matthew 11:27 ; compare Matthew 5:21-26 ; Mark 3:28-29 ). As in the Old Testament, so also Jesus' word demanded decision on the part of the hearers (James 3:5-68 ; John 12:47 ).
The message concerning Jesus can also be called “a word.” Paul spoke of “the word of God that you heard from us” that is mediated by his human words ( 1 Thessalonians 2:13 NRSV). The content of this word is certainly the good news story concerning Jesus' death and resurrection—the heart of the gospel ( 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 ). This message is the word of the cross (Galatians 3:1 ) and is the core content of Paul's preaching (1 Corinthians 2:2 ). Because of His sacrifice and resurrection, the gospel message is a “word of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:19 ) and a “word of life” (Philippians 2:16 ). The word is witnessed and proclaimed by Jesus' followers (Luke 1:2 ; Acts 4:2 ; Acts 6:7 ). The word revealed through His son (Hebrews 1:1-4 ) brings illumination and judgment.
Jesus Himself is the Word—the living Word. The preexistent Word who was with God “in the beginning” has now become flesh (John 1:1-18 ). Scholars have frequently claimed that John used logos in a philosophical sense to refer to the world's controlling rational principle (Stoicism) or to the created intermediary between God and His world (Philo). However, John's word is not a principle or divine characteristic. It is a preexistent, life-giving person . John opposed Greek philosophy by arguing that salvation comes not by mankind's escape from this world but by God entering and redeeming creation. More probably logos was chosen because of its meaning in the Old Testament, its Greek translation, and contemporary Hebrew literature, where the concepts of wisdom and word were being spoken of as a distinct manifestation of God. John saw that the same agent of God who gave life in the first creation was also giving life in the new creation inaugurated by Jesus' coming. The creative Word of God became flesh; being divine He embodied divine communication. Now the Word dwells among us revealing the glory of God ( John 1:14 ).
Power of the Word It is often assumed that in Hebrew thought words had a mysterious binding authority. For example, when Isaac discovered he had been deceived and wrongly gave his blessing to Jacob, he declared that his blessing had been given and Jacob “shall be blessed” (Genesis 27:33 ). Isaac's word seems magical—like an arrow once shot, it could not be recalled. Caution must be exercised here. Actually, only God's word has this type of irresistible potency (Isaiah 55:11 ) and absolute creative power (Genesis 1:3-31 ; Luke 1:32-35 ; compare Isaiah 9:8 ; Isaiah 31:2 ; Isaiah 45:23 ). Most occurrences like Isaac's may be explained in terms of their social custom. Following a prescribed social custom, a person may form a bond, or a will, by speaking a word. Even today a couple can make or create a marriage by saying “I do.” We must also note that Scripture teaches that a person's word is often powerless (1 Corinthians 2:4 ; 1 Corinthians 4:19-20 ) and frequently fails (Matthew 21:28-32 ).
Words are capable of great good and evil (Matthew 12:36 ; 1618068905_53 ,James 3:5-6,3:8 ). Words can deeply injure (Proverbs 12:18 ; Proverbs 18:14 ), and revive (Proverbs 12:18 ,Proverbs 12:18,12:25 ; Proverbs 16:24 ). Words can have a widespread influence; words from the wicked are like a fire-spreading torch (Proverbs 16:27-28 ); words from the good bring good fruit (Proverbs 12:14 ; Proverbs 10:11 ).

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Word
John 1:1 (a) This is a personification of the Lord JESUS CHRIST. JESUS spoke and His Godhead and Deity were revealed at once. His words revealed His character. When He spoke everyone knew at once that it was the voice of GOD. He spoke with life-giving power. He spoke with transforming power. It is as when one speaks on the telephone to a friend many miles away. The moment the voice is heard, the friend recognizes the person, and visualizes his appearance. CHRIST is the Word of GOD.

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Word
(Heb. dabar [1]; Gk. logos [2] and rhema [3]). The theological meaning of "word" within Scripture spans a wide theological spectrum. From the divine point of view, it consists of God revealing something about himself through his spoken word, which is ultimately and perfectly personified in his Son, Jesus Christ. In a broader sense, it designates Scripture itself. In contrast, the human word mirrors the human condition: it is limited, fallen, and dependent on divine intervention for restoration and sustenance.
The Word of God. The Old Testament . The concept of the word of God is a major Old Testament theme. It points out the absolute uniqueness of Israel's religion on the basis of personal contact with Yahweh—the transcendent, sovereign, creator God.
It is the means by which God created all things . Genesis 1 firmly establishes God's supremacy over the whole of creation. God has created all things by his spoken word. The psalmist declares, "By the word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth" (33:6); "For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm" (v. 9 cf. Psalm 104:7 ). His word continues to reign supreme over all of creation (Psalm 147:15-18 ). Creation in turn speaks words of praise to its Creator (Psalm 19:1-4 ).
It unveils God to his creation . Though fully transcendent and incomparable deity, in giving his word to people, God reveals something of himself to them. Balaam, for example, speaks as "one who hears the words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High" (Numbers 24:16 ; cf. Joshua 24:27 ; 1 Kings 18:31 ; Ezekiel 3:10-11 ). God's word is an important instrument of divine revelation; at Shiloh, the Lord continued to reveal himself to Samuel through his word (1 Samuel 3:21 ). At times God's word nearly appears as synonymous with his person (1 Samuel 15:23,26 ; 28:15 ; Psalm 138:1-2 ).
Its qualities describe God to his creation . The close connection between God and his word means that the qualities attributed to God's word also describe God's own personal character. In the Old Testament God's word is creative (Psalm 33:6 ), good (Micah 2:7 ), holy (Jeremiah 23:9 ), complete (Jeremiah 26:2 ), flawless (2 Samuel 22:31 ; Psalm 12:6 ; 18:30 ; Proverbs 30:5 ), all-sufficient (Deuteronomy 8:3 ; Isaiah 50:4 ; Jeremiah 15:16 ), sure (Leviticus 26:11-123 ; 45:23 ; Jeremiah 44:28 ), right and true (Judges 13:12,17 ; 1 Samuel 3:19 ; Psalm 33:4 ; Isaiah 55:11 ), understandable (Deuteronomy 4:10,12 , 36 ; Numbers 24:15-168 ), active (Hosea 6:5 ), all-powerful (Psalm 68:11-14 ; 147:15-18 ), indestructible (Jeremiah 23:29 ), supreme (Psalm 17:4 ), eternal (Psalm 119:89 ; Isaiah 40:8 ), life-giving (Deuteronomy 32:46-47 ), wise (Psalm 119:130 ), and trustworthy (2 Samuel 7:28 ; 1 Kings 17:16 ). Therefore, God was understood similarly.
It discloses God's plan for his creation . God discloses his plan for creation through his word. The common Old Testament expression, "the word of the Lord came, " indicates the sending and reception of divine prophecy. It occurs once in the Pentateuch (Isaiah 31:2 ), numerous times in the historical books, and many times in the prophets. The sending and reception of God's word are by the Spirit (Zechariah 7:12 ) and often through visions (1618068905_87 ; 1 Samuel 3:1 ; 1 Kings 22:19 ); it is pictured as God reaching out his hand and touching the mouth of the prophet (Jeremiah 1:9 ). In times of judgment, God frequently refrained from communicating his word to his people (1 Samuel 3:1 ; Amos 8:11 ; also 1 Samuel 28:6 ; Micah 3:4,7 ). God's word will come to fulfillment according to the divine plan (Psalm 105:19 ; Lamentations 2:17 ; Ezekiel 12:28 ). God asserts, "I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled" (Jeremiah 1:12 ). God's word is in perfect harmony with his will and plan for creation (2 Samuel 7:21 ; Psalm 103:20-21 ; Lamentations 2:17 ).
It is known by creation . People knew something of the transcendent God through his word. Balaam "hears the words of God, has knowledge from the Most High, and sees a vision from the Almighty " (Numbers 24:16 ). Israel as a nation was the unique recipient of "the words of the living God, the Lord Almighty" (Jeremiah 23:36 ). To them, God's word was equivalent to law (Isaiah 1:10 ). Accordingly, God's word demands proper human response; it is to be obeyed (Numbers 15:30-31 ; Deuteronomy 11:18-21 ; Ezekiel 33:32 ), feared (Exodus 9:20-21 ; Ezra 9:4 ; Psalm 119:161 ; Isaiah 66:2,5 ), praised (Psalm 56:4,10 ), preserved (Jeremiah 23:36 ), and proclaimed to others (Deuteronomy 5:5 ; 1 Samuel 3:31-4:1 ; Nehemiah 8:14-15 ; Jeremiah 11:6 ).
It is for the good of creation . God's word at times comes upon creation as judgment, but only as a divine response to disobedience. Its primary objective and appeal was for the well-being of creation. God's word is equivalent to divine rescue. It brings healing (Psalm 107:20 ; Ezekiel 37:4-14 ) and refreshing (Deuteronomy 32:1-2 ). To those who reject it, it becomes offensive (Jeremiah 6:10 ) and meaningless (Isaiah 28:13 ), and in judgment will come upon them as a raging fire and a hammer that breaks rocks to pieces (Jeremiah 23:29 ). But to those who accept it, it gives and sustains life (Deuteronomy 8:3 ). God's word is like living water, welling up to nourish creation from the Spring on High (Jeremiah 2:13 ).
It is supremely authoritative for all of creation . As God is supreme deity, his word bears supreme authority. The expression "the Lord has spoken" (Isaiah 24:3 ) signifies unrivaled authority. It is uncontestable. No power can overturn it or thwart it. God's word is authoritative for all of creation.
The New Testament . The New Testament reiterates the Old Testament depiction of the word of God as the divine means of creating and sustaining all things (Hebrews 11:3 ; 2 Peter 3:5-7 ), as divine revelation (Romans 3:2 ; 1 Peter 4:11 ), and as prophetic speech (Luke 3:2 ; 2 Peter 1:19 ). Hebrews 4:12-13 powerfully sums up its supreme authority as "living and active sharper than any double-edged sword, " able to expose even the most hidden thoughts before God.
But the New Testament significantly deepens the Old Testament in light of the incarnation. In view of Jesus' life and work, the word of God now especially refers to God's consummate message of salvation to all people, the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Accordingly, the New Testament richly describes the gospel as "the word" (Acts 8:4 ; 16:6 ; 1 Corinthians 15:2 ), "word of God" (Acts 6:7 ; 12:24 ; Hebrews 13:7 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ), "word of the Lord" (Acts 8:25 ; 13:48-49 ), "word of his [4] grace" (Acts 20:32 ), "word of Christ" (Romans 10:17 ; Colossians 3:16 ), "word of truth" (Ephesians 1:13 ; Colossians 1:5 ; James 1:18 ), "word of faith" (Romans 10:8 ), and "word of life" (Philippians 2:16 ).
Similar to its Old Testament uses, the word of God as the gospel is to be kept free of distortion (2 Corinthians 4:2 ) and is to be preached in its fullness (Colossians 1:25 ). It is to be believed (1 Peter 3:1 ) and obeyed (Acts 6:7 ; 1 John 2:25 ). The gospel as the saving message of Jesus Christ is the living and enduring word of God (1 Peter 1:18-23 ). It is reliable and supremely authoritative, for it is inseparable from the person and character of its Senderthe sovereign, loving, creator God.
Christ . Although the Old Testament never uses the concept of word to describe the expected coming of the messiah, the New Testament significantly develops its theological meaning by equating the Old Testament concept of word of God with the person and work of Jesus Christ. Whereas extrabiblical concepts may have influenced, to a limited degree, the New Testament formulation of Jesus as the Word, the main influence comes from the Old Testament itself. Exactly when the early church understood Jesus in this way is uncertain, but nothing demands that it was necessarily late (i.e., well toward the end of the first century). For, as John's Gospel especially stresses, all the criteria for making such a connection were present in Jesus' own teaching, work, and self-consciousness.
The first two words of John's Gospel are most instructive in this regard. The phrase en arche ("in the beginning") recalls the opening words of the Old Testament in Genesis 1:1 . The association is deliberate. It establishes from the Gospel's outset how its author intended the reader to understand Jesus' person and work throughout the remainder of the book. But justification for doing so originates in the life of Jesus himself.
According to Genesis 1 God created all things by his spoken word. The formula, "And God said, Let there be, ' and it was so" provides the pattern for how God created on each day of creation. God's word is supremely powerful, able to create ex nihilo ("out of nothing").
The opening verses of John's Gospel explicitly link God's creative word to the person and work of the preincarnate Jesus (1:1-3). The evidence for this christological claim comes from Jesus' own ministry. The Fourth Gospel recounts seven sign miracles of Jesus (2:1-11; 4:46-54; 5:1-9; 6:5-14; 6:19-21; 9:1-7; 11:1-44). As "signs" these miracles indicate the importance of what Jesus did in conjunction with understanding him as the preincarnate word of God. Jesus performed these miracles through his spoken word . His creating anew expressly images the Father's creating of old. Jesus' words were all-powerful and able to create out of nothing.
The New Testament views the incarnate Jesus as none other than the Old Testament word of God personified (John 1:14 a). The incarnation of the Word was a humble coming. Jesus came in the "flesh" (sarx [ Exodus 25:8 ; 1618068905_37 ). To see Jesus is to see God. As "the exact representation of his [4] being, " Jesus sustains "all things by his powerful word" (Hebrews 1:3 ). Jesus' words are life-giving (John 6:63,68 ) and to be believed (John 2:22 ). What he speaks is from the Father (John 12:49-50 ; 14:10,24 ; 17:8 ). His words will never pass away (Matthew 24:35 ; Mark 13:31 ; Luke 21:33 ) and are all-sufficient (Matthew 7:24,26 ; Luke 6:46-49 ; John 8:51-59 ; 12:47-48 ; 15:7 ), even unto the granting of eternal life (John 5:24 ). The incarnation personifies God's sending of his saving creative Word: through his Son, God has made something of eternal value out of nothing (cf. John 3:16-18 ; Revelation 1:2,9 ; 20:4 ).
Moreover, Jesus as the Word of life, the eternal life, had come into full human contact with others (John 1:14 b; 1 John 1:1-3 ). The strength of John's high Christology is that it stems from Jesus' earthly life and was demonstrable by eyewitness testimony to it (19:35; 20:30-31; 21:24-25). Luke mentions in his Gospel preface that he uses reliable tradition from "eyewitnesses and servants of the word [6]" (1:2). Jesus also promised to send the Spirit to assist the apostles' accurate recollection and assessment of his life and teaching (John 14:26 ; 16:14-15 ; Song of Solomon 2:22 ).
Thus in connection to the Old Testament picture of the word of God, the New Testament understands Jesus as the ultimate means through which God created, revealed, and personified himself to creation. Jesus as the word of God discloses God's saving plan for and to creation, makes God better known to creation, is known firsthand by creation, has come for the saving good of creation, and is equal to the Father as supreme authority over all of creation. To preach the gospel of Jesus Christ is to preach in its fullness the word of God. Therefore, in most fitting description, at the consummation of history, Jesus will return "dressed in a robe dipped in blood, [7] name is the Word of God" (Revelation 19:13 ).
Human Words . In both Testaments, human words stand in stark contrast to those of God. Whereas God's words are creative, perfect, and of supreme authority, human words are finite, frail, and fallen. Yet despite the human condition, when controlled by the Holy Spirit, they become as the very words of God.
Human words can be true or false. They are testable (Genesis 42:16,20 ), especially in the legal sense of eyewitness testimony (Deuteronomy 19:15-19 ). Keeping one's word was highly esteemed (Psalm 15:4 ) and an obligation in making vows and oaths (Numbers 30:2 ; Judges 11:30,36 ); but breaking one's word, especially of promises made to the Lord, was a serious offense holding grave consequences for the offender (cf. Deuteronomy 23:21-23 ; Ecclesiastes 5:1-7 ). In view of these Old Testament considerations, for a Gospel writer to profess that his testimony is true, reliable, is a weighty claim (John 21:24 ; cf. Zechariah 8:16-17 ). In effect, he asserts that its contents are true in the legal, investigative sense and as on oath before God because of its claims about God (cf. John 3:33 ; 7:28 ; 8:26 ).
Words also reflect a person's true character. They show the person for what he or she truly is: "out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks" (Matthew 12:34 ); "it is what comes out of a man that makes him unclean" (Mark 7:15 ). The righteous speak truth and wisdom to the praise and glory of God (2 Samuel 22:1 ; Job 33:3 ; Psalm 15:2 ; 19:14 ; Proverbs 16:23 ), but the wicked speak folly and lies (Proverbs 12:23 ) and blaspheme God (2 Kings 19:6 ) and his Spirit (Matthew 12:31-32 ).
For this reason, words become sufficient for passing judgment upon those who utter them. On the day of judgment God will hold people accountable for what they have said: "For by your words you will be acquitted and condemned" (Matthew 12:37 ). In this sense the tongue has the power of life and death (Proverbs 18:21 ): the mouth of a fool will bring him to ruin (Proverbs 10:14 ; 13:3 ), but the one who controls what he says is wise and virtuous (James 3:1-12 ).
Under divine control, human words can have eternal value. The Spirit inspires and empowers the words of God's servants as they defend the faith (Luke 12:11-12 ; cf. Acts 4:8 ), proclaim the gospel (Ephesians 6:19 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:5 ), and instruct and exhort other believers (1 Corinthians 14:6,26 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:18 ; Hebrews 13:22 ). This divine enabling sets apart the Christian message from mere human wisdom or persuasive rhetoric (1 Corinthians 1:17 ; 2:4,13 ). The Christian becomes, as it were, "one speaking the very words of God" (1 Peter 4:11 ; 2 Peter 1:21 ).
Scripture . The word of God has also come to refer to Scripture itself. In the Old Testament, the words God had given Moses at Sinai became written law (Exodus 24:3 ; Deuteronomy 4:10-14 ; 27:3 ; 31:24-29 ). The Ten Commandments were called "the word of the covenant" (Exodus 34:27-28 ); all of God's revelation to Moses was called "the words [8] of the law" (Deuteronomy 28:58 ; 31:24 ; Joshua 8:34 ; 2 Kings 22:13 ), "word of the Lord" (2 Chronicles 34:21 ), and "word of truth" (Psalm 119:43 ). With God's powerful display of redeeming Israel from Egypt in view, God gave these decrees, laws, and commands to serve as an abiding written record to his person, presence, and ways before Israel and the nations (Deuteronomy 4:5-8,32-40 ). The book of the Law then is none other than the revealed word of God put down into written form. It remained authoritative to Israel. Israel and their descendants were to search, learn, and obey it (Deuteronomy 4:6 ; Nehemiah 8:13 ; Psalm 119:11 ). As such it becomes the guide for righteous living (Psalm 119:9 ) and is synonymous with "the Book of the Law" (cf. Deuteronomy 31:24,26 ). Psalm 119 has it in view. The Old Testament word of God as written scripture represents "all the laws that come from your [4] mouth" (v. 13). By Daniel's time prophetic material was being written down and preserved as well (cf. Daniel 9:2 ).
By the New Testament era, the word of God as Scripture referred to the entire Old Testament, to the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (cf. Matthew 15:6 ; Mark 7:13 ; John 10:35 ). The idea of Scripture as being "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16 ) suggests that the entire Old Testament represents God's revealed word and holds supreme authority for faith and practice. At what point the early church began to view some of the New Testament writings in this way is uncertain. But given the church's proclamation of Jesus and of the gospel as the "Word of God" and the early recognized authority of apostolic teaching, many of the New Testament books were probably seen in this way well before the close of the first century.
In summary, on the basis of the word of God, all natural and human reality was created, sustained, redeemed, and will be consummated. As with the Giver, what is Given is unshakable and unstoppable: "my word that goes out from my mouth will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isaiah 55:11 ). God's word as his creative power and revelation is perfect and all-sufficient, especially as it is personified in his Son, Jesus Christ. Our response to God and to his revelation of himself in his Son as preserved in Scripture must therefore be as that of the royal official to Jesusto take him at his word (John 4:50 ).

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Word, the
A designation of the Lord Jesus, employed by John in the opening of his gospel, and mentioned in Luke 1:2 . The word is λόγος, which occurs constantly in the N.T. and is translated 'word, saying, speech,' etc. In John 1 it is ' the Word who is in view,' and what is stated asserts clearly three things concerning the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1. His eternal existence: "in the beginning was the Word;" "all things were made by him."
2. His true deity: "the Word was God."
3. His distinct personality: "the Word was with God."
As the Word, the Lord Jesus is the substance and expression of the mind of God in regard of man; and the term covers what He was on earth for man — life, light, and love. See also Revelation 19:13 .
It has been said that λόγος presents "the intelligent and the intelligible." The same Greek (translated 'the word') is used to express the scriptures and the truth preached. Acts 16:6 ; Acts 17:11 ; Galatians 6:6 ; Philippians 1:14 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:6 ; 1 Peter 2:2,8 ; 1 Peter 3:1 ; 2 Peter 3:7 ; 1 John 2:7 ; Revelation 3:8 .
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Word
Sometimes the Scripture ascribes to the word of God certain supernatural effects, and often represents it as animated and active: "He sent his word and healed them," Psalms 107:20 . It also signifies what is written in the sacred books of the Old and New Testament, Luke 11:28 ; James 1:22 ; the divine law which teaches and commands good things, and forbids evil, Psalms 119:101 ; and is used to express every promise of God, Psalms 119:25 , &c, and prophecy or vision, Isaiah 2:1 . This term is likewise consecrated and appropriated to signify the only Son of the Father, the uncreated Wisdom, the second Person of the most holy Trinity, equal to and consubstantial with the Father. St. John the evangelist, more expressly than any other, has opened to us the mystery of the Word of God, when he tells us, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made," John 1:1-3 . The Chaldee paraphrasts, the most ancient Jewish writers extant, generally make use of the word memra, which signifies "the Word," in those places where Moses puts the name Jehovah. They say, for example, that it was the Memra, or the Word, which created the world, which appeared to Moses on Mount Sinai, which gave him the law, which spoke to him face to face, which brought Israel out of Egypt, which marched before the people, and which wrought all those miracles that are recorded in Exodus. It was the same Word that appeared to Abraham in the plain of Mamre, that was seen of Jacob at Bethel, to whom Jacob made his vow, and acknowledged as God, saying, "If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, then shall the Lord be my God," Genesis 28:20-21 . The manner in which St. John commences his Gospel is strikingly different from the introductions to the histories of Christ by the other evangelists; and no less striking and peculiar is the title under which he announces him— "the Word." It has therefore been a subject of much inquiry and discussion, from whence this evangelist drew the use of this appellation, and what reasons led him, as though intending to solicit particular attention, to place it at the very head of his Gospel. That it was for the purpose of establishing an express opinion, as to the personal character of him it is used to designate, is made more than probable from the predominant character of the whole Gospel, which is more copiously doctrinal, and contains a record more full of what Jesus "said" than the others. As to the source from which the term Logos was drawn by the Apostle, some have held it to be taken from the Jewish Scriptures; others, from the Chaldee paraphrases; others, from Philo and the Hellenizing Jews. The most natural conclusion certainly appears to be, that, as St. John was a plain, "unlearned" man, chiefly conversant in the Holy Scriptures, he derived this term from the sacred books of his own nation, in which the Hebrew phrase, Dabar Jehovah, "the Word of Jehovah," frequently occurs in passages which must be understood to speak of a personal Word, and which phrase is rendered Λογος Κυριου [1] by the Septuagint interpreters. Certainly, there is not the least evidence in his writings, or in his traditional history, that he ever acquainted himself with Philo or with Plato; and none therefore, that he borrowed the term from them, or used it in any sense approaching to or suggested by these refinements:—in the writings of St. Paul there are allusions to poets and philosophers; in those of St. John, none, except to the rising sects afterward known under the appellation of Gnostics. The Hebrew Scriptures contain frequent intimations of a distinction of Persons in the Godhead; one of these Divine Persons is called Jehovah; and, though manifestly represented as existing distinct from the Father, is yet arrayed with attributes of divinity, and was acknowledged by the ancient Jews to be, in the highest sense, "their God," the God with whom, through all their history, they chiefly "had to do." This Divine Person is proved to have been spoken of by the prophets as the future Christ; the evangelists and Apostles represent Jesus as that Divine Person of the prophets; and if, in the writings of the Old Testament, he is also called the Word, the application of this term to our Lord is naturally accounted for. It will then appear to be a theological, not a philosophic appellation, and one which, previously even to the time of the Apostle, had been stamped with the authority of inspiration.
Celebrated as this title of the Logos was in the Jewish theology, it is not, however, the appellation by which the Spirit of inspiration has chosen that our Saviour should be principally designated. It occurs but a very few times, and principally and emphatically in the introduction to St. John's Gospel. A cogent reason can be given why this Apostle adopts it; and we are not without a probable reason why, in the New Testament, the title "Son of God" should have been preferred, which is a frequent title of the Logos in the writings also of Philo. Originating from the spiritual principle of connection, between the first and the second Being in the Godhead; marking this, by a spiritual idea of connection; and considering it to be as close and as necessary as the Word is to the energetic mind of God, which cannot bury its intellectual energies in silence, but must put them forth in speech; it is too spiritual in itself, to be addressed to the faith of the multitude. If with so full a reference to our bodily ideas, and so positive a filiation of the second Being to the first, we have seen the attempts of Arian criticism endeavouring to resolve the doctrine into the mere dust of a figure; how much more ready would it have been to do so, if we had only such a spiritual denomination as this for the second! This would certainly have been considered by it as too unsubstantial for distinct personality, and therefore too evanescent for equal divinity. One of the first teachers of this system was Cerinthus. We have not any particular account of all the branches of his system; and it is possible that we may ascribe to him some of those tenets by which later sects of Gnostics were discriminated. But we have authority for saying, that the general principle of the Gnostic scheme was openly taught by Cerinthus before the publication of the Gospel of St. John. The authority is that of Irenaeus, a bishop who lived in the second century, who in his youth had heard Polycarp, the disciple of the Apostle John, and who retained the discourses of Polycarp in his memory till his death. There are yet extant of the works of Irenaeus, five books which he wrote against heresies, one of the most authentic and valuable monuments of theological erudition. In one place of that work he says, that Cerinthus taught in Asia that the world was not made by the Supreme God, but by a certain power very separate and far removed from the Sovereign of the universe, and ignorant of his nature. In another place, he says that John the Apostle wished, by his Gospel, to extirpate the error which had been spread among men by Cerinthus; and Jerom, who lived in the fourth century, says that St. John wrote his Gospel, at the desire of the bishops of Asia, against Cerinthus and other heretics, and chiefly against the doctrines of the Ebionites, then springing up, who said that Christ did not exist before he was born of Mary.
"It appears," says Dr. Hill, "to have been the tradition of the Christian church, that St. John, who lived to a great age, and who resided at Ephesus, in Proconsular Asia, was moved by the growth of the Gnostic heresies, and by the solicitations of the Christian teachers, to bear his testimony to the truth in writing, and particularly to recollect those discourses and actions of our Lord, which might furnish the clearest refutation of the persons who denied his preexistence. This tradition is a key to a great part of his Gospel. Matthew, Mark, and Luke had given a detail of those actions of Jesus which are the evidences of his divine mission; of those events in his life upon earth which are most interesting to the human race; and of those moral discourses in which the wisdom, the grace, and the sanctity of the Teacher shine with united lustre. Their whole narration implies that Jesus was more than man. But as it is distinguished by a beautiful simplicity, which adds very much to their credit as historians, they have not, with the exception of a few incidental expressions, formally stated the conclusion that Jesus was more than man; but have left the Christian world to draw it for themselves from the facts narrated, or to receive it by the teaching and the writings of the Apostles. St. John, who was preserved by God to see this conclusion, which had been drawn by the great body of Christians, and had been established in the epistles, denied by different heretics, brings forward, in the form of a history of Jesus, a view of his exalted character, and draws our attention particularly to the truth of that which had been denied. When you come to analyze the Gospel of St John, you will find that the first eighteen verses contain the positions laid down by the Apostle, in order to meet the errors of Cerinthus; that these positions, which are merely affirmed in the introduction, are proved in the progress of the Gospel, by the testimony of John the Baptist, and by the words and the actions of our Lord; and that after the proof is concluded by the declaration of Thomas, who, upon being convinced that Jesus had risen, said to him, ‘My Lord, and my God,' St. John sums up the amount of his Gospel in these few words: ‘These are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God;' that is, that Jesus and the Christ are not distinct persons, and that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The Apostle does not condescend to mention the name of Cerinthus, because that would have preserved, as long as the world lasts, the memory of a name which might otherwise be forgotten. But, although there is dignity and propriety in omitting the mention of his name, it was necessary, in laying down the positions that were to meet his errors, to adopt some of his words, because the Christians of those days would not so readily have applied the doctrine of the Apostle to the refutation of those heresies which Cerinthus was spreading among them, if they had not found in the exposition of that doctrine some of the terms in which the heresy was delivered; and as the chief of these terms, Logos, which Cerinthus applied to an inferior spirit, was equivalent to a phrase in common use among the Jews, ‘the Word of Jehovah,' and was probably borrowed from thence, John by his use of Logos rescues it from the degraded use of Cerinthus, and restores it to a sense corresponding to the dignity of the Jewish phrase."
The Logos was no fanciful term, merely invented by St. John, pro re nata, [2] or even suggested by the Holy Spirit, as a suitable title for a prophet by whom God chose to reveal himself or his Word. It was a term diversely understood in the world before St. John began his Gospel. Is it possible, therefore, that he should have used the term without some express allusion to these prevailing opinions? Had he contradicted them all, it would, of course, have been a plain proof, that they were all equally fabulous and fanciful; but by adopting the term, he certainly meant to show, that the error did not consist in believing that there was a Logos, or Word of God, but in thinking amiss of it. We might, indeed, have wondered much had he decidedly adopted the Platonic or Gnostic notions, in preference to the Jewish; but that he should harmonize with the latter, is by no means surprising; first, because he was a Jew himself; and, secondly, because Christianity was plainly to be shown to be connected with, and, as it were, regularly to have sprung out of, Judaism. It is certainly, then, in the highest degree consistent with all we could reasonably expect, to find St. John and others of the sacred writers expressing themselves in terms not only familiar to the Jews under the old covenant, but, in such as might tend, by a perfect revelation of the truth, to give instruction to all parties; correcting the errors of the Platonic and oriental systems, and confirming, in the clearest manner, the hopes and expectations of the Jews.
While the reasons for the use of this term by St. John are obvious, the argument from it is irresistible; for, first, the Logos of the evangelist is a person, not an attribute, as many Socinians have said, who have, therefore, sometimes chosen to render it wisdom. For if it be an attribute, it were a mere truism to say, that "it was in the beginning with God;" because God could never be without his attributes. The Apostle also declares, that the Logos was the Light; but that John Baptist was not the light. Here is a kind of parallel supposed, and it presumes, also, that it was possible that the same character might be erroneously ascribed to both. Between person and person this may, undoubtedly, be the case; but what species of parallel can exist between man and an attribute? Nor will the difficulty be obviated by suggesting, that wisdom here means not the attribute itself, but him whom that attribute inspired, the man Jesus Christ, because the name of our Saviour has not yet been mentioned; because that rule of interpretation must be inadmissible, which at one time would explain the term Logos by an attribute, at another by a man, as best suits the convenience of hypothesis; and because, if it be, in this instance, conceived to indicate our Saviour, it must follow, that our Saviour created the world, (which the Unitarians will by no means admit,) for the Logos, who was that which John the Baptist was not, the true Light, is expressly declared to have made the world. Again: the Logos was made flesh, that is, became man; but in what possible sense could an attribute become man? The Logos is "the only begotten of the Father;" but it would be uncouth to say of any attribute, that it is begotten; and, if that were passed over, it would follow, from this notion, either that God has only one attribute, or that wisdom is not his only begotten attribute. Farther: St. John uses terms decisively personal, as that he is God, not divine as an attribute, but God personally; not that he was in God, which would properly have been said of an attribute, but with God, which he could only say of a person; that "all things were made by him;" that he was "in the world;" that "he came to his own;" that he was "in the bosom of the Father;" and that "he hath declared the Father." The absurdity of representing the Logos of St. John as an attribute seems, at length, to have been perceived by the Socinians themselves, and their new version accordingly regards it as a personal term.
If the Logos be a person, then is he Divine; for, first, eternity is ascribed to him: "In the beginning, was the Word." The Unitarian comment is, "from the beginning of his ministry," or "the commencement of the Gospel dispensation;" which makes St. John use another trifling truism, and solemnly tell his readers, that our Saviour, when he began his ministry, was in existence! "in the beginning of his ministry the Word was!" It is true, that αρχη , "the beginning," is used for the beginning of Christ's ministry, when he says that the Apostles had been with him from the beginning; and it may be used for the beginning of any thing whatever. It is a term which must be determined in its meaning by the context; and the question, therefore, is, how the connection here determines it. Almost immediately it is added, "All things were made by him;" which can only mean the creation of universal nature. He, then, who made all things was prior to all created things; he was when they began to be, and before they began to be; and, if he existed before all created things, he was not himself created, and was, therefore, eternal. Secondly, he is expressly called God; and, thirdly, he is as explicitly said to be the Creator of all things. The two last particulars have often been largely established, and nothing need be added, except, as another proof that the Scriptures can only be fairly explained by the doctrine of a distinction of divine Persons in the Godhead, the declaration of St. John may be adduced, that "the Word was with God, and the Word was God." What hypothesis but this goes a single step to explain this wonderful language? Arianism, which allows the preexistence of Christ with God, accords with the first clause, but contradicts the second. Sabellianism, which reduces the personal to an official, and therefore a temporal, distinction, accords with the second clause, but contradicts the first; for Christ, according to this theory, was not with God in the beginning, that is, in eternity. Socinianism contradicts both clauses; for on that scheme Christ was neither with God in the beginning, nor was he God. "The faith of God's elect" agrees with both clauses, and by both it is established: "The Word was with God, and the Word was God." See UNITARIANS .

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Word
One of the titles of the second person of the Trinity, indicating perhaps that by his acts and teachings God is revealed, somewhat as thought is by words, 1 John 1:1 5:7 Revelation 19:13 . "The word of the Lord" was a common phrase in the Old Testament, always denoting some revelation of Jehovah. Long before the coming of Christ, the Jewish paraphrasts of the Bible used "The Word" in the passage where Jehovah occurred in the original; and the term was familiar to Jewish writers as the name of a divine being, the Son of God.
To show its true meaning and its application to our Savior, was of great importance to John, the last of the inspired writers, in whose later years certain errors as to the person of Christ, borrowed from Eastern philosophy, had begun to creep into the Christian church. He describes "The Word" as a personal and divine Being, self-existent, and coexistent from eternity with the Father, yet distinguished from him as The Son, the creator of all created things, the source of all life and light to men, and in the fullness of time incarnate among men, John 1:13,14 . John's gospel is full and clear respecting the divinity of Christ, John 20:31 .

Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Word
1: λόγος (Strong's #3056 — Noun Masculine — logos — log'-os ) denotes (I) "the expression of thought," not the mere name of an object, (a) as embodying a conception or idea, e.g., Luke 7:7 ; 1 Corinthians 14:9,19 ; (b) a saying or statement, (1) by God, e.g., John 15:25 ; Romans 9:9 ; 9:28 , RV, "word" (AV, "work"); Galatians 5:14 ; Hebrews 4:12 ; (2) by Christ, e.g., Matthew 24:35 (plur.); John 2:22 ; 4:41 ; 14:23 (plur.); 15:20. In connection with (1) and (2) the phrase "the word of the Lord," i.e., the revealed will of God (very frequent in the OT), is used of a direct revelation given by Christ, 1 Thessalonians 4:15 ; of the gospel, Acts 8:25 ; 13:49 ; 15:35,36 ; 16:32 ; 19:10 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:8 ; 2 Thessalonians 3:1 ; in this respect it is the message from the Lord, delivered with His authority and made effective by His power (cp. Acts 10:36 ); for other instances relating to the gospel see Acts 13:26 ; 14:3 ; 15:7 ; 1 Corinthians 1:18 , RV; 2 Corinthians 2:17 ; 4:2 ; 5:19 ; 6:7 ; Galatians 6:6 ; Ephesians 1:13 ; Philippians 2:16 ; Colossians 1:5 ; Hebrews 5:13 ; sometimes it is used as the sum of God's utterances, e.g., Mark 7:13 ; John 10:35 ; Revelation 1:2,9 ; (c) discourse, speech, of instruction, etc., e.g., Acts 2:40 ; 1 Corinthians 2:13 ; 12:8 ; 2 Corinthians 1:18 ; 1 Thessalonians 1:5 ; 2 Thessalonians 2:15 ; Hebrews 6:1 , RV, marg.; doctrine, e.g., Matthew 13:20 ; Colossians 3:16 ; 1 Timothy 4:6 ; 2 Timothy 1:13 ; Titus 1:9 ; 1 John 2:7 ;
(II) "The Personal Word," a title of the Son of God; this identification is substantiated by the statements of doctrine in John 1:1-18 , declaring in verses John 1:1,2 (1) His distinct and superfinite Personality, (2) His relation in the Godhead (pros, "with," not mere company, but the most intimate communion), (3) His deity; in John 1:3 His creative power; in John 1:14 His incarnation ("became flesh," expressing His voluntary act; not as AV, "was made"), the reality and totality of His human nature, and His glory "as of the only begotten from the Father," RV (marg., "an only begotten from a father"), the absence of the article in each place lending stress to the nature and character of the relationship; His was the shekinah glory in open manifestation; John 1:18 consummates the identification: "the only-begotten Son (RV marg., many ancient authorities read "God only begotten,"), which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him," thus fulfilling the significance of the title "Logos," the "Word," the personal manifestation, not of a part of the Divine nature, but of the whole Deity (see IMAGE).
The title is used also in 1 John 1:1 , "the Word of life" combining the two declarations in John 1:1,4 and Revelation 19:13 (for 1 John 5:7 see THREE).
2: ῥῆμα (Strong's #4487 — Noun Neuter — rhema — hray'-mah ) denotes "that which is spoken, what is uttered in speech or writing;" in the singular, "a word," e.g., Matthew 12:36 ; 27:14 ; 2 Corinthians 12:4 ; 13:1 ; Hebrews 12:19 ; in the plural, speech, discourse, e.g., John 3:34 ; 8:20 ; Acts 2:14 ; 6:11,13 ; 11:14 ; 13:42 ; 26:25 ; Romans 10:18 ; 2 Peter 3:2 ; Jude 1:17 ; it is used of the Gospel in Romans 10:8 (twice),17, RV, "the word of Christ" (i.e., the "word" which preaches Christ); 10:18; 1 Peter 1:25 (twice); of a statement, command, instruction, e.g., Matthew 26:75 ; Luke 1:37 , RV, "(no) word (from God shall be void of power);" Luke 1:38 ; Acts 11:16 ; Hebrews 11:3 .
The significance of rhema (as distinct from logos) is exemplified in the injunction to take "the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God," Ephesians 6:17 ; here the reference is not to the whole Bible as such, but to the individual scripture which the Spirit brings to our remembrance for use in time of need, a prerequisite being the regular storing of the mind with Scripture.
Notes: (1) Epos, "a word," is used in a phrase in Hebrews 7:9 , lit., "(as to say) a word," RV, "(so to) say," AV, "(as I may so) say;" logos is reasoned speech, rhema, an utterance, epos, "the articulated expression of a thought" (Abbott-Smith). (2) In Romans 16:18 , AV, chrestologia, "useful discourse" (chrestos, "beneficial"), is rendered "good words" [1]. (3) For logikos, 1 Peter 2:2 (RV, "spiritual"), rendered "of the word," AV, see MILK. (4) For the verb apangello, rendered "to bring word," see BRING , No. 36. (5) In Matthew 2:13 , AV, eipon, "to tell" (RV) is rendered "bring ... word." (6) For "enticing words," Colossians 2:4 , see ENTICE and PERSUASIVENESS. (7) For "strifes of words," 1 Timothy 6:4 , AV, and "strive ... about words," 2 Timothy 2:14 , see STRIFE , STRIVE. (8) For suntomos, Acts 24:4 , "a few words," see FEW , B. For the same phrase see FEW , A, Nos. 1 and 2.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Word of God: Everliving
How wonderfully has the Lord provided for the continuance of the vegetable world; he causes the plant to scatter broadcast a multitude of seeds, and bids the winds convey them far and wide. The fowls of the air are commissioned to bear berries and fruits to their proper soils, and even to bury them in the earth; while scores of four-footed creatures, engaged in storing up food for themselves, become planters of trees, and propagators of plants. Seeds bear a charmed life about them, they will germinate after being buried for centuries; they have been known to flourish when turned up from the borings of wells from the depth of hundreds of feet, and when ponds and lakes have been dried, the undrowned vegetable life has surprised the beholders by blossoming with unknown flowers. Can we imagine that God has been thus careful of the life of the mere grass of the field, which is the very emblem of decay, and yet is negligent of his Word which liveth and abideth for ever? It is not to be dreamed of. Truth, the incorruptible seed, is ever scattering itself, every wind is laden with it, every breath spreads it; it lies dormant in a thousand memories, it preserves its life in the abodes of death. The Lord has but to give the word, and a band of eloquent men shall publish the gospel, apostles and evangelists will rise in abundance, like the warriors who sprang from the fabled dragon's teeth; converts will spring up like flowerets at the approach of spring, nations shall be born in a day, and truth, and God the Lord of truth, shall reign for ever.
Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Word: Ways of Treating it
There are two ways of treating the seed. The botanist splits it up, and discourses on its curious characteristics; the simple husbandman eats and sows; sows and eats. Similarly there are two ways of treating the gospel. A critic dissects it, raises a mountain of debate about the structure of the whole, and relation of its parts; and when he is done with his argument, he is done; to him the letter is dead ; he neither lives on it himself, nor spreads it for the good of his neighbours; he neither eats nor sows, The disciple of Jesus, hungering for righteousness, takes the seed whole; it is bread for to-day's hunger, and seed for to-morrow's supply.: W. Arnot.

Word - To the Israelites of Old Testament times, God’s Word was not simply something written down or spoken out, but something active. Through the active Word of God, the universe was created (Genesis 1:3; Genesis 1:6; Genesis 1:9; Genesis 1:14; Genesis 1:20; Genesis 1:24; Genesis 1:26; Hebrews 11:3; 2 Peter 3:5). God’s Word could not fail. God’s Word had such life and power that people often thought of it almost as if it was a person – the living agent or messenger of God (Psalms 33:6; Psalms 107:20; Psalms 147:15; Psalms 147:18). ...
Jesus the Word...
In the New Testament Jesus is called the Word (Greek: logos) (1 John 1:1-3). Greek philosophers of the first century used logos in reference to what they believed to be the principle of reason in the universe, but this is not necessarily the way the Bible uses the Word. The Word logos as used in the New Testament may contain some reference to the Greek ideas, but it is better understood in relation to the Old Testament meaning of ‘word’. ...
The Word of God is the living and active agent of God. The New Testament shows that this Word is more than merely likened to a person, it is a person; no longer ‘it’, but ‘he’. This Word is Jesus Christ, who came into the world as a human being. He is the living Word, the living expression of God. His Words and deeds are the Words and deeds of God (John 1:1-4; John 1:14; cf. )...
The written and spoken Word...
Because God has spoken to the world through Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ is the Word. Similarly, because he has spoken through the Scriptures, the Scriptures are the Word (Psalms 119:105; Matthew 15:6; John 10:35). When, however, the Bible writers speak of the written or spoken Word of God, they are usually referring not to a one-volume book such as our Bible, but to the Word of God as announced or preached by God’s representatives. (For details of the Bible as the Word of God see INSPIRATION; SCRIPTURES. )...
Prophets, for example, were God’s spokesmen, and their announcements were the authoritative Word of God for his people (Isaiah 1:2-4; Isaiah 1:18; Jeremiah 23:22; Ezekiel 1:3; Hosea 4:1; Joel 1:1; Amos 1:3; Hebrews 1:1-2; see PROPHECY). Likewise the preaching of the gospel by the New Testament apostles was the proclamation of the Word of God (Acts 4:31; Acts 13:44; Ephesians 1:13; Colossians 1:5-6; 1 Peter 1:23; 1 Peter 1:25; see GOSPEL; PREACHING). The instruction in Christian doctrine that followed was the teaching of the Word of God (Acts 18:11; Colossians 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 13:7; see TEACHER). ...
This spoken Word became also the written Word and, like the personal Word Jesus, was living and active
Shoshannim - A Word in the headings of Psalm 45 , Psalm 69 , and Psalm 80 , with the Word EDUTH, 'a testimony,' added. The first Hebrew Word signifies 'lilies. ' In the heading of Psalm 60 is a similar Word: SHUSHAN-EDUTH,'the lily of testimony
Plague (2) - —The Word ‘plague’ is used in the Gospels to render the Greek Word μάστιξ, which means a whip or scourge (cf. In the Apocalypse the Word πληγή, from which the English Word is formed, is exclusively used. In the Gospels the Word occurs only four times (Mark 3:10; Mark 5:29; Mark 5:34 and Luke 7:21). The Word is therefore used in a figurative sense, and there is no reference to the bubonic disease which is the scourge of India to-day
Execrative - ) A Word used for cursing; an imprecatory Word or expression
Easter - Originally a Saxon Word (Eostre), denoting a goddess of the Saxons, in honour of whom sacrifices were offered about the time of the Passover. In the early English versions this Word was frequently used as the translation of the Greek pascha (the Passover).

Old Testament Dabar is the primary Hebrew expression for Word. Occasionally, difficulty arises in distinguishing between these meanings (Psalm 35:20 NRSV, “deceitful Words”; KJV, “deceitful matters”; REB, “intrigues”; NIV, “false accusations”). The frequent construction “the Word of the Lord” or “the Word of Yahweh” refers to communication made by God to people. The means of this communication are seldom related, nor must the phrase refer to a particular set of Words. Three aspects of this Word demand special attention. A prophetic Word. The prophets claimed to deliver the “word of God” (Jeremiah 1:9 ). This Word of God addressed human beings and demanded a response. Thus God's Word may be visualized as a great salvation (Isaiah 2:2-5 ) or a great judgment (Jeremiah 26:4-6 ). A legal Word. In the covenant law God spoke the Words of the law to Moses (Exodus 20:1 ; Exodus 24:3-8 ). The heart of the law is called the ten Words (Exodus 34:28 ; Deuteronomy 4:13 ). The entire law represents the will of God and so can be called a single “word” (Deuteronomy 4:2 KJV). This Word also demands response: faithful obedience will bring God's blessing while disobedience will lead to a curse ( Deuteronomy 30:15-20 ). Creative Word. God created the world by His Word (Genesis 1:1 ; Isaiah 48:13 ; Psalm 33:9 ). The Word is spoken of as if it were a person who directs the events of nature (Psalm 147:15-18 ; Psalm 148:8 ), saves (Psalm 107:20 ), and gives life (Ezekiel 37:1-4 ). ...
New Testament Logos and Rhema are the two primary Greek Words meaning “word. The New Testament can use these Words to apply to Jesus' message, the message about Jesus, and Jesus Himself. ...
Jesus' message of the coming kingdom can be called a “word” ( Mark 2:2 ; Mark 4:33 ; Luke 5:1 ) as can His individual sayings (Matthew 26:75 ; Luke 22:61 ; John 7:36 ). Significantly, Jesus avoided citing rabbinic authorities or using the traditional language of a prophet who would claim “that the Word of the Lord came to me” or declare “thus says the Lord. As in the Old Testament, so also Jesus' Word demanded decision on the part of the hearers (John 8:51 ; John 12:47 ). ...
The message concerning Jesus can also be called “a Word. ” Paul spoke of “the Word of God that you heard from us” that is mediated by his human Words ( 1 Thessalonians 2:13 NRSV). The content of this Word is certainly the good news story concerning Jesus' death and resurrection—the heart of the gospel ( 1 Corinthians 15:3-5 ). This message is the Word of the cross (Galatians 3:1 ) and is the core content of Paul's preaching (1 Corinthians 2:2 ). Because of His sacrifice and resurrection, the gospel message is a “word of reconciliation” (2 Corinthians 5:19 ) and a “word of life” (Philippians 2:16 ). The Word is witnessed and proclaimed by Jesus' followers (Luke 1:2 ; Acts 4:2 ; Acts 6:7 ). The Word revealed through His son (Hebrews 1:1-4 ) brings illumination and judgment. ...
Jesus Himself is the Word—the living Word. The preexistent Word who was with God “in the beginning” has now become flesh (John 1:1-18 ). However, John's Word is not a principle or divine characteristic. More probably logos was chosen because of its meaning in the Old Testament, its Greek translation, and contemporary Hebrew literature, where the concepts of wisdom and Word were being spoken of as a distinct manifestation of God. The creative Word of God became flesh; being divine He embodied divine communication. Now the Word dwells among us revealing the glory of God ( John 1:14 ). ...
Power of the Word It is often assumed that in Hebrew thought Words had a mysterious binding authority. Isaac's Word seems magical—like an arrow once shot, it could not be recalled. Actually, only God's Word has this type of irresistible potency (Isaiah 55:11 ) and absolute creative power (Genesis 1:3-31 ; Luke 1:32-35 ; compare Isaiah 9:8 ; Isaiah 31:2 ; Isaiah 45:23 ). Following a prescribed social custom, a person may form a bond, or a will, by speaking a Word. ” We must also note that Scripture teaches that a person's Word is often powerless (1 Corinthians 2:4 ; 1 Corinthians 4:19-20 ) and frequently fails (Matthew 21:28-32 ). ...
Words are capable of great good and evil (Matthew 12:36 ; James 3:5-6 ,James 3:5-6,3:8 ). Words can deeply injure (Proverbs 12:18 ; Proverbs 18:14 ), and revive (Proverbs 12:18 ,Proverbs 12:18,12:25 ; Proverbs 16:24 ). Words can have a widespread influence; Words from the wicked are like a fire-spreading torch (Proverbs 16:27-28 ); Words from the good bring good fruit (Proverbs 12:14 ; Proverbs 10:11 )

Fortune - It does not appear that the antiquity of the Word is very high. It is acknowledged, on all hands, that Word, from whence the Romans took their fortuna, was a term invented long after the times of Hesiod and Homer, in whose writings it no where occurs. The philosophical sense of the Word coincides with what is vulgarly called chance. It is difficult to ascertain what it denotes in the minds of those who now use the Word.

Manger - The interest attached to this Word is in connection with the birth of Christ. The Word is φάτνη, which in classical Greek is used for a 'manger' or 'feeding trough;' but it has been doubted whether the modern manger was introduced into Palestine so early. Schleusner contends that the Word implies in scripture "any enclosure, but especially a vestibule to the house, where the cattle were, not enclosed with walls, but wooden hurdles.

Friend - It is a different Word, however, in Greek, by which he addressed Judas, Matthew 26:50 ; the Word there translated friend, means simply companion, and appears to have been used as a conversational term not implying friendship. The same Word occurs in Matthew 20:13 22:12
Love - This Word seems to require explanation only in the case of its use by our Lord in his interview with "Simon, the son of Jonas," after his resurrection (John 21:16,17 ). When our Lord says, "Lovest thou me?" he uses the Greek Word Agapas ; And when Simon answers, he uses the Greek Word Philo , I. " This is the usage in the first and second questions put by our Lord; but in the third our Lord uses Simon's Word. The distinction between these two Greek Words is thus fitly described by Trench:, " Agapan Has more of judgment and deliberate choice; Philein has more of attachment and peculiar personal affection. agapas) on the lips of the Lord seems to Peter at this moment too cold a Word, as though his Lord were keeping him at a distance, or at least not inviting him to draw near, as in the passionate yearning of his heart he desired now to do. Therefore he puts by the Word and substitutes his own stronger 'I love' (Gr. And now he has conquered; for when the Lord demands a third time whether he loves him, he does it in the Word which alone will satisfy Peter ('Lovest thou,' Gr. " In 1 Corinthians 13 the apostle sets forth the excellency of love, as the Word "charity" there is rendered in the Revised Version

People in general used the Word as a title of respect for prominent teachers in the community (Luke 3:12; Luke 10:25; John 1:49; John 3:2).

Word - The theological meaning of "word" within Scripture spans a wide theological spectrum. From the divine point of view, it consists of God revealing something about himself through his spoken Word, which is ultimately and perfectly personified in his Son, Jesus Christ. In contrast, the human Word mirrors the human condition: it is limited, fallen, and dependent on divine intervention for restoration and sustenance. ...
The Word of God. The concept of the Word of God is a major Old Testament theme. God has created all things by his spoken Word. The psalmist declares, "By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth" (33:6); "For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm" (v. His Word continues to reign supreme over all of creation (Psalm 147:15-18 ). Creation in turn speaks Words of praise to its Creator (Psalm 19:1-4 ). Though fully transcendent and incomparable deity, in giving his Word to people, God reveals something of himself to them. Balaam, for example, speaks as "one who hears the Words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High" (Numbers 24:16 ; cf. God's Word is an important instrument of divine revelation; at Shiloh, the Lord continued to reveal himself to Samuel through his Word (1 Samuel 3:21 ). At times God's Word nearly appears as synonymous with his person (1 Samuel 15:23,26 ; 28:15 ; Psalm 138:1-2 ). The close connection between God and his Word means that the qualities attributed to God's Word also describe God's own personal character. In the Old Testament God's Word is creative (Psalm 33:6 ), good (Micah 2:7 ), holy (Jeremiah 23:9 ), complete (Jeremiah 26:2 ), flawless (2 Samuel 22:31 ; Psalm 12:6 ; 18:30 ; Proverbs 30:5 ), all-sufficient (Deuteronomy 4:5-8,322 ; Isaiah 50:4 ; Jeremiah 15:16 ), sure (1 Samuel 3:31-47 ; 45:23 ; Jeremiah 44:28 ), right and true (Judges 13:12,17 ; 1 Samuel 3:19 ; Psalm 33:4 ; Isaiah 55:11 ), understandable (Deuteronomy 4:10,12 , 36 ; Nehemiah 8:12 ), active (Hosea 6:5 ), all-powerful (Psalm 68:11-14 ; 147:15-18 ), indestructible (Nehemiah 8:14-157 ), supreme (Psalm 17:4 ), eternal (Psalm 119:89 ; Isaiah 40:8 ), life-giving (Deuteronomy 32:46-47 ), wise (Psalm 119:130 ), and trustworthy (2 Samuel 7:28 ; 1 Kings 17:16 ). God discloses his plan for creation through his Word. The common Old Testament expression, "the Word of the Lord came, " indicates the sending and reception of divine prophecy. The sending and reception of God's Word are by the Spirit (Zechariah 7:12 ) and often through visions (Numbers 24:15-16 ; 1 Samuel 3:1 ; 1 Kings 22:19 ); it is pictured as God reaching out his hand and touching the mouth of the prophet (Jeremiah 1:9 ). In times of judgment, God frequently refrained from communicating his Word to his people (1 Samuel 3:1 ; Amos 8:11 ; also 1 Samuel 28:6 ; Micah 3:4,7 ). God's Word will come to fulfillment according to the divine plan (Psalm 105:19 ; Lamentations 2:17 ; Ezekiel 12:28 ). God asserts, "I am watching to see that my Word is fulfilled" (Jeremiah 1:12 ). God's Word is in perfect harmony with his will and plan for creation (2 Samuel 7:21 ; Psalm 103:20-21 ; Lamentations 2:17 ). People knew something of the transcendent God through his Word. Balaam "hears the Words of God, has knowledge from the Most High, and sees a vision from the Almighty " (Numbers 24:16 ). Israel as a nation was the unique recipient of "the Words of the living God, the Lord Almighty" (Jeremiah 23:36 ). To them, God's Word was equivalent to law (Exodus 34:27-28 ). Accordingly, God's Word demands proper human response; it is to be obeyed (Numbers 15:30-31 ; Deuteronomy 11:18-21 ; Ezekiel 33:32 ), feared (Exodus 9:20-21 ; Ezra 9:4 ; Psalm 119:161 ; Isaiah 66:2,5 ), praised (Psalm 56:4,10 ), preserved (Deuteronomy 8:3 ), and proclaimed to others (Deuteronomy 5:5 ; 1618068905_86:1 ; 1618068905_69 ; Jeremiah 11:6 ). God's Word at times comes upon creation as judgment, but only as a divine response to disobedience. God's Word is equivalent to divine rescue. God's Word is like living water, welling up to nourish creation from the Spring on High (Jeremiah 2:13 ). As God is supreme deity, his Word bears supreme authority. God's Word is authoritative for all of creation. The New Testament reiterates the Old Testament depiction of the Word of God as the divine means of creating and sustaining all things (Hebrews 11:3 ; 1618068905_62 ), as divine revelation (Romans 3:2 ; John 3:16-18 ), and as prophetic speech (Luke 3:2 ; 2 Peter 1:19 ). Hebrews 4:12-13 powerfully sums up its supreme authority as "living and active sharper than any double-edged sword, " able to expose even the most hidden thoughts before God. In view of Jesus' life and work, the Word of God now especially refers to God's consummate message of salvation to all people, the gospel of Jesus Christ. ...
Accordingly, the New Testament richly describes the gospel as "the Word" (Zechariah 8:16-17 ; 16:6 ; 1 Corinthians 15:2 ), "word of God" (Acts 6:7 ; 12:24 ; Hebrews 13:7 ; 1 Peter 1:23 ), "word of the Lord" (Acts 8:25 ; 13:48-49 ), "word of his [4] grace" (Acts 20:32 ), "word of Christ" (Romans 10:17 ; Colossians 3:16 ), "word of truth" (Ephesians 1:13 ; Colossians 1:5 ; James 1:18 ), "word of faith" (Isaiah 1:10 ), and "word of life" (Philippians 2:16 ). ...
Similar to its Old Testament uses, the Word of God as the gospel is to be kept free of distortion (2 Corinthians 4:2 ) and is to be preached in its fullness (Colossians 1:25 ). The gospel as the saving message of Jesus Christ is the living and enduring Word of God (1 Peter 1:18-23 ). Although the Old Testament never uses the concept of Word to describe the expected coming of the messiah, the New Testament significantly develops its theological meaning by equating the Old Testament concept of Word of God with the person and work of Jesus Christ. Whereas extrabiblical concepts may have influenced, to a limited degree, the New Testament formulation of Jesus as the Word, the main influence comes from the Old Testament itself. ...
The first two Words of John's Gospel are most instructive in this regard. The phrase en arche ("in the beginning") recalls the opening Words of the Old Testament in Genesis 1:1 . ...
According to Genesis 1 God created all things by his spoken Word. God's Word is supremely powerful, able to create ex nihilo ("out of nothing"). ...
The opening verses of John's Gospel explicitly link God's creative Word to the person and work of the preincarnate Jesus (1:1-3). As "signs" these miracles indicate the importance of what Jesus did in conjunction with understanding him as the preincarnate Word of God. Jesus performed these miracles through his spoken Word . Jesus' Words were all-powerful and able to create out of nothing. ...
The New Testament views the incarnate Jesus as none other than the Old Testament Word of God personified (John 1:14 a). The incarnation of the Word was a humble coming. As "the exact representation of his [4] being, " Jesus sustains "all things by his powerful Word" (Hebrews 1:3 ). Jesus' Words are life-giving (John 6:63,68 ) and to be believed (Acts 8:4 ). His Words will never pass away (Matthew 24:35 ; Mark 13:31 ; Luke 21:33 ) and are all-sufficient (Matthew 7:24,26 ; Luke 6:46-49 ; John 8:51-59 ; 12:47-48 ; 15:7 ), even unto the granting of eternal life (John 5:24 ). The incarnation personifies God's sending of his saving creative Word: through his Son, God has made something of eternal value out of nothing (cf. ...
Moreover, Jesus as the Word of life, the eternal life, had come into full human contact with others (John 1:14 b; 1 John 1:1-3 ). Luke mentions in his Gospel preface that he uses reliable tradition from "eyewitnesses and servants of the Word
Thus in connection to the Old Testament picture of the Word of God, the New Testament understands Jesus as the ultimate means through which God created, revealed, and personified himself to creation. Jesus as the Word of God discloses God's saving plan for and to creation, makes God better known to creation, is known firsthand by creation, has come for the saving good of creation, and is equal to the Father as supreme authority over all of creation. To preach the gospel of Jesus Christ is to preach in its fullness the Word of God. Therefore, in most fitting description, at the consummation of history, Jesus will return "dressed in a robe dipped in blood, [7] name is the Word of God" (Revelation 19:13 ). ...
Human Words . In both Testaments, human Words stand in stark contrast to those of God. Whereas God's Words are creative, perfect, and of supreme authority, human Words are finite, frail, and fallen. Yet despite the human condition, when controlled by the Holy Spirit, they become as the very Words of God. ...
Human Words can be true or false. Keeping one's Word was highly esteemed (Psalm 15:4 ) and an obligation in making vows and oaths (Numbers 30:2 ; Judges 11:30,36 ); but breaking one's Word, especially of promises made to the Lord, was a serious offense holding grave consequences for the offender (cf. ...
Words also reflect a person's true character. ...
For this reason, Words become sufficient for passing judgment upon those who utter them. On the day of judgment God will hold people accountable for what they have said: "For by your Words you will be acquitted and condemned" (Matthew 12:37 ). ...
Under divine control, human Words can have eternal value. The Spirit inspires and empowers the Words of God's servants as they defend the faith (Luke 12:11-12 ; cf. The Christian becomes, as it were, "one speaking the very Words of God" (1 Peter 4:11 ; 2 Peter 1:21 ). The Word of God has also come to refer to Scripture itself. In the Old Testament, the Words God had given Moses at Sinai became written law (Exodus 24:3 ; Deuteronomy 4:10-14 ; 27:3 ; 31:24-29 ). The Ten Commandments were called "the Word of the covenant" (Romans 10:8 ); all of God's revelation to Moses was called "the Words [8] of the law" (Deuteronomy 28:58 ; 31:24 ; Joshua 8:34 ; 2 Kings 22:13 ), "word of the Lord" (2 Chronicles 34:21 ), and "word of truth" (Psalm 119:43 ). The book of the Law then is none other than the revealed Word of God put down into written form. The Old Testament Word of God as written scripture represents "all the laws that come from your [4] mouth" (v. ...
By the New Testament era, the Word of God as Scripture referred to the entire Old Testament, to the Law of Moses, the Prophets, and the Psalms (cf. The idea of Scripture as being "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16 ) suggests that the entire Old Testament represents God's revealed Word and holds supreme authority for faith and practice. But given the church's proclamation of Jesus and of the gospel as the "Word of God" and the early recognized authority of apostolic teaching, many of the New Testament books were probably seen in this way well before the close of the first century. ...
In summary, on the basis of the Word of God, all natural and human reality was created, sustained, redeemed, and will be consummated. As with the Giver, what is Given is unshakable and unstoppable: "my Word that goes out from my mouth will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it" (Isaiah 55:11 ). God's Word as his creative power and revelation is perfect and all-sufficient, especially as it is personified in his Son, Jesus Christ. Our response to God and to his revelation of himself in his Son as preserved in Scripture must therefore be as that of the royal official to Jesusto take him at his Word (John 4:50 )
Vision - ” None of the 34 appearances of this Word appear before First Samuel, and most of them are in the prophetic books. Second, this Word represents the message received by prophetic “vision”: “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he” ( Word inseparably related to the content of a divine communication focuses on the means by which that message is received: “And the Word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision” ( Word). 29:7 this Word signifies a non-prophetic dream. Cognates of this Word appear in Ugaritic, Aramaic, and Arabic. 18:21—the first occurrence of the Word). 2:14 the Word means “to see” in relation to prophets’ vision: “Thy prophets have seen vain and foolish things for thee: and they have not discovered thine iniquity
Pulse - Our English Word means peas, beans, lentiles, and the produce of similar podded plants, but in Daniel 1:12; Daniel 1:16 the Hebrew Word probably denotes vegetable food in general, and in 2 Samuel 17:28 parched peas, which are still a favorite food in the east

Logos - (loh' gohss) The Greek term usually translated “word. The logos became a distinct entity, specifically the “word of God” active in creation and revelation. ...
In the Septuagint, the Greek translation of the Old Testament, logos translates the Word dabar , which could mean “word,” “thing,” or “event. The term was often used to designate God's communication to his people, as at the beginning of many of the writings of the prophets: “The Word of the Lord came. ” The whole of the Law, or all of Scripture, could then be referred to as God's Word. ...
Toward the end of the Old Testament period Wisdom was increasingly personified as the Word of God that mediated between God and the world (see Proverbs 8:22-31 ). It is used for empty Words ( Ephesians 5:6 ) and evil Words (3 John 1:10 ), but it could also refer to the teachings of Jesus (Matthew 24:35 ). Jesus preached the Word (Mark 2:2 ) or the Word of God (Luke 5:1 ), and judgment would be determined by one's response to Jesus' Words (Mark 8:38 ). The gospel, the message about Jesus, could then be called “the Word” (1 Thessalonians 1:6 ; Luke 1:2 ; Titus 1:2-3 ) or “the Word of God” (Acts 8:14 ; 1 Thessalonians 2:13 ). The Word carries God's power to save (1 Corinthians 1:18 ). Those who receive the Word are called to be faithful to it (Colossians 1:15-166 ) and to be “doers of the Word” (James 1:22 ). Elsewhere in the Gospel of John, we find logos used with qualifiers such as “of God” ( John 10:35 ), “of Jesus” (John 18:32 ), “my Word” (John 8:43 ), or “his Word” (John 8:55 ). Revelation 19:13 calls Jesus the “word of God,” and 1 John 1:1 speaks of Him as “the Word of life” (compare Hebrews 1:2 ), but only in the prologue of the Gospel is logos used of Jesus in the absolute sense
Word, the - Philo's Logos ("word") on the contrary excludes personality, and is identical at times with God, at other times with the world.

Virgin - This suggests that this Word was used rarely, perhaps because other Words bore a similar meaning. The Word ‛almâh represents those who are eligible for marriage but are neither wives (queens) nor concubines. 24:43 the Word describes Rebekah, of whom it is said in Word to be used in Word betulah emphasizes virility more than virginity (although it is used with both emphases, too). This was a possible, but irregular, use of the Word since the Word can refer merely to the unmarried status of the one so described. On the other hand, the reader of that day must have been extremely uncomfortable with this use of the Word, since its primary connotation is “virgin” rather than “maiden. 1:23 whereby this Word is rendered “virgin” satisfies its fullest implication. Therefore, there was no embarrassment to Isaiah when his wife conceived a son by him, since the Word ‛almâh allowed for this. Neither is there any embarrassment in Matthew’s understanding of the Word

Milk - 1: γάλα (Strong's #1051 — Noun Neuter — gala — gal'-ah ) is used (a) literally, 1 Corinthians 9:7 ; (b) metaphorically, of rudimentary spiritual teaching, 1 Corinthians 3:2 ; Hebrews 5:12,13 ; 1 Peter 2:2 ; here the meaning largely depends upon the significance of the Word logikos, which the AV renders "of the Word," RV "spiritual. " While logos denotes "a Word," the adjective logikos is never used with the meaning assigned to it in the AV, nor does the context in 1 Peter 1:23 compel this meaning. While it is true that the Word of God, like "milk," nourishes the soul, and this is involved in the exhoration, the only other occurrence in the NT is Romans 12:1 , where it is translated "reasonable," i. God's Word is not given so that it is impossible to understand it, or that it requires a special class of men to interpret it; its character is such that the Holy Spirit who gave it can unfold its truths even to the young convert
Sword - The Hebrew Word chereb and the Greek Word machaira designate either a dagger or a sword. The Hebrew Word also designates an iron tool (“axes,” Ezekiel 26:9 ) or a chisel (“tool,” Exodus 20:25 ). In Joshua 5:2 , the Word designates stone knives used in the circumcision of the people of Israel. ...
Archaeology has shown that different kinds of swords were used in the Ancient Near East. The sickle or curved sword was used throughout Mesopotamia, Egypt, and in Palestine. The earlier swords were straight, relatively short, and made of bronze. Ehud's sword was the two-edged short dagger; it measured about 18 inches (Judges 3:16 ). The sword used by the Israelites in the conquest of Canaan probably was the long-bladed, curved sword (Joshua 6:21 ). ...
The Sea Peoples introduced to Canaan the two-edged long sword made of iron. This type of iron sword was kept out of the hands of the Israelites by the Philistines for military and economic reasons until the times of David (1 Samuel 13:19 ). The sword was kept in a sheath (1 Samuel 17:51 ; Matthew 26:52 ). ...
There are many symbolic uses for the Word sword in the Bible. The Word was used as a metaphor for war (Jeremiah 14:15 ; Matthew 10:34 ); the sword was an instrument of divine justice (Ezekiel 21:3 ; Revelation 1:16 ). Rash Words are compared to a sword that pierces (Proverbs 12:18 ); the tongue is like a sharp sword (Psalm 57:4 ); malicious Words are “drawn swords” (Psalm 55:21 ). The Word of God is sharper than a “two-edged sword” (Hebrews 4:12 ); the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, is part of the Christian's armament in the fight against evil (Ephesians 6:17 )
Step - Biblical occurrences of this Word number about 117 and appear in every period of the language. ...
The nuances of this Word are related to the basic meaning “a human foot. 25:12 the Word is applied to the “pedestals or feet” of the ark of the covenant: “And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in the four [1] thereof; and two rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the other side of it. ” Elsewhere the Word signifies the “steps” one takes, or “footsteps”: “Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not” ( Word to the “steps” of a galloping horse, or its hoofbeats. ” This Word functions as an adverb with the focus on an occurrence or time. 10:17 the Word bears this emphasis: “Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and entreat the Lord your God. …” The first biblical appearance of the Word focuses on the finality, the absoluteness, of an event: “This is now bone of my bones …” ( Harar - (hay' ruhr) Geographical name perhaps related to Hebrew Word for “mountain. ” The Word appears in slightly difficult forms in its appearances in the Hebrew Bible

Earing - " Earing is an old English Word for plowing. The same Word is used
Box Tree - תאשור , Isaiah 41:9 ; Isaiah 60:13 ; Ezekiel 27:6 ; 2 Esdras 14:24 , where the Word appears to be used for tablets. Most of the ancient, and several of the modern, translators, render this Word the buxus, or "box tree;" but from its being mentioned along with trees of the forest, some more stately tree must be intended, probably the cedar
Tormentors - The Greek Word usually denotes men who had charge of instruments of torture, by which unwilling witnesses were compelled to testify, and the agonies of execution in some cases were protracted. The same men, however, were keepers of prisons and jails; and it is probably with reference only to their office as jailers that the Word is used in Matthew 18:34
Piety - This Word occurs but once in the Authorized Version: "Let them learn first to show piety at home," better "toward their own household" or family. (1 Timothy 5:4 ) The choice of this Word here instead of the more usual equivalents -of "godliness," "reverence," and the like, was probably determined by the special sense of pietas , as "erga parentes," i
Gam'Madim - This Word occurs only in (Ezekiel 27:11 ) A variety of explanations of the term have been offered. ...
A third gives a more general sense to the Word "brave warriors
Noble - ” The Word also occurs in Word is applied to the Messiah; the Messiah is none other than God Himself: “But there the glorious Lord will be unto us a place of broad rivers …” ( Word appears in Word ‘addı̂yr (adjective or noun) occurs about 26 times in biblical Hebrew and mostly in poetical passages (of all periods).

Two other adjectives are related to this Word. 17:8
the Word implies “noble or majestic”: “It was planted in a good soil by great waters … that it might be a goodly [2] vine. The Word appears in Word also appears in Armour - None of the Hebrew Words translated 'armour' refer definitely to what is understood now by armour worn on the person. Saul armed David with his 'armour,' 1 Samuel 17:38 , but the Word used is also translated 'clothes,' etc. 1 Samuel 17:38 ; Ezekiel 23:24 : the Word is qoba. Another Word, koba, meaning the same, is found in 1 Samuel 17:5 ; 2 Chronicles 26:14 ; Isaiah 59:17 ; Jeremiah 46:4 ; Ezekiel 27:10 ; Ezekiel 38:5 . This Word is translated 'HABERGEON ' in 2 Chronicles 26:14 ; Nehemiah 4:16 , which also signifies 'coat of mail,' and there is a similar Word in Job 41:26 . The Word is mitschah, and occurs nowhere else. He had a Target of brass between his shoulders, 1 Samuel 17:6 : the Word is kidon, and is elsewhere translated both 'shield' and 'spear. The same Word is translated BUCKLER. ...
Another Word is used for a smaller shield, magen, and this is the Word which occurs most commonly in the O. The same Word is translated BUCKLER. ...
The Word shelet is translated Shield, but is also applied to Shields of gold, 2 Samuel 8:7 , and those suspended for ornament
Idol - ” This Word is a loanword from Hittite-Hurrian (tarpish) which in West Semitic assumes the basic form tarpi. ” Biblical Hebrew attests this Word 15 times. ...
Either of the former suggestions is the possible meaning of the Word in the Micah incident recorded in Judg. 18:17 uses all four Words in describing what the Danites stole; Word appear in Akkadian, Syriac, and Arabic. ...
This disdainful Word signifies an “idol” or “false god. …” The irony of this is biting not only with respect to the usual meaning of this Word but also in view of its similarity to the usual Word for God (‘elohim; cf. Second, this Word can mean “nought” or “vain. ” Of the 48 occurrences of this Word, all but 9 appear in Ezekiel. This Word for “idols” is a disdainful Word and may originally have meant “dung pellets”: “And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you” (
Word and others for “idol” exhibit the horror and scorn that biblical writers felt toward them. 66:3 the Word for “idol,” ‘awen, means “uncanny or wickedness. 50:38 evidences the Word ‘emim, which means “fright or horror. ” The Word ‘elil appears for “idol” in 1 Kings 15:13 uses the Hebrew Word, mipletset, meaning a “horrible thing, a cause of trembling

Raca - 1: ῥακά (Strong's #4469 — Noun — raka — rhak-ah' ) is an Aramaic Word akin to the Heb. It was a Word of utter contempt, signifying "empty," intellectually rather than morally, "empty-headed," like Abimelech's hirelings, Judges 9:4 , and the "vain" man of James 2:20 . As condemned by Christ, Matthew 5:22 , it was worse than being angry, inasmuch as an outrageous utterance is worse than a feeling unexpressed or somewhat controlled in expression; it does not indicate such a loss of self-control as the Word rendered "fool," a godless, moral reprobate
Comforter - The same Greek Word thus rendered is translated "Advocate" in 1 John 2:1 as applicable to Christ. " "Advocate" is the proper rendering of the Word in every case where it occurs. It is worthy of notice that although Paul nowhere uses the Word paracletos, he yet presents the idea it embodies when he speaks of the "intercession" both of Christ and the Spirit ( Romans 8:27,34 )
Comforter - The same Greek Word thus rendered is translated "Advocate" in 1 John 2:1 as applicable to Christ. " "Advocate" is the proper rendering of the Word in every case where it occurs.

Aram - In Matthew 1:3,4 , and Luke 3:33 , this Word is the Greek form of Ram, the father of Amminadab (1 Chronicles 2:10 ). The Word means high, or highlands, and as the name of a country denotes that elevated region extending from the northeast of Palestine to the Euphrates.

Fellow - Word is used in AV [2] ‘man’; there is no Word in the Gr. ’ Although the Word when used in AV Anomoeans - The Word is formed from the Greek ανομοιος , different. For the pure Arians asserted, that the Son was of a nature different from, and in nothing like, that of the Father; whereas the Semi-Arians acknowledged a likeness of nature in the Son, at the same time that they denied, with the pure Arians, the consubstantiality of the Word. The Semi-Arians condemned the Anomoeans in the council of Selcucia; and the Anomoeans, in their turn, condemned the Semi-Arians in the councils of Constantinople and Antioch, erasing the Word like out of the formula of Rimini and Constantinople
Leaf, Leaves - The Word occurs in the Authorized Version either in singular or plural number in three different senses. The hebrew Word, which occurs very many times in the Bible, and which in (1 Kings 6:32 ) (margin) and 1 Kings 6:34 Is translated "leaves" in the Authorized Version, signifies beams, ribs, sides, etc. ...
Leaves of a book or roll occurs in this sense only in (Jeremiah 36:23 ) The Hebrew Word (literally doors ) would perhaps be more correctly translated columns
Selah - This is a pure Hebrew Word, and written exactly as it is here. ...
It would furnish matter for a separate treatise to bring into one view all that hath been said upon this Word Selah; and after all we should be still left to conjecture. Some ancient writers have considered it as a Word of particular observation, as if Selah meant to tell the reader to pause, said consider what went before. But this opinion is liable to great objection; for in this case David and Habakkuk are the only writers that thus impress consideration on their Readers, and they that always, neither at what we should consider the most striking parts of their writings: and if this were indeed the sense of Selah, how comes it that not one of the Lord's servants have ever used?...
Others, and that a great majority of writers on Scripture, have concluded that the Word Selah had reference to the music in the temple-service, and was a note of the ancient psalmody, but which now and for a long time, hath lost its use. This opinion doth not seem more satisfactory than the former; for supposing this to be the case, it were unaccountable that the Holy Ghost should have uniformly watched the Word so as to preserve it with equal care as the Scriptures themselves with which the Word is connected. ...
One class more have concluded that the Word Selah means an end, not unlike the Amen. And though there might seem an objection to this, in that the Word is more frequently found in the middle part of the psalm or hymn, and not at the last verse, yet, say they, the sense of that part ends there. If the Word Selah means the end, perhaps it may be found not to mean the end of the Psalm where it stands, but to a higher end, even pointing to him who is "the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth," and to whom the law of Moses, and the prophets, and the Psalms, all refer as the end. I am persuaded the Word Selah is important; and I am inclined to thin, like some other Words preserved to us in the Psalms that it refers to Christ. If the reader wishes to look at these other Words, let him turn to the Word Musician

Testament, New - Campbell, is frequently denominated and almost always rendered the New Testament: yet the Word by itself, is generally translated covenant. It is the Greek Word, whereby the Seventy have uniformly translated the Hebrew Word Berith, which our translators have invariably translated covenant. That the Hebrew term corresponds much better to the English Word covenant than to testament, there can be no question; yet the Word in classical use is more frequently rendered Testament. The proper Greek Word for covenant is not found in the New Testament, and occurs only thrice in the Septuagint, where it is never employed for rendering the Word Berith
Son, the; Son of God - In the commencement of the Gospel by John is the statement "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The Word is μονογενής, and is equivalent to the Hebrew Word yachid, which signifies 'only one,' and hence 'darling. Thus the Word was to be fulfilled: "Jehovah hath said unto me, Thou art my Son: this day have I begotten thee. " Psalm 2:7 ; Acts 13:33 (where the Word 'again' should be omitted); Hebrews 1:5 ; Hebrews 5:5
Precious - ” Although none of the 35 biblical appearances of this Word occurs before First Samuel, they are scattered throughout the rest of the Bible. 3:1: “And the Word of the Lord was precious in those days; there was no open vision. ”...

Several Hebrew Words are used, some implying 'an appointed meeting,' others a 'calling together,' etc. the Word is also used for any gathering of people, as at the tumult in Ephesus. In James 2:2 the Word 'assembly' is really the synagogue, or place of meeting.

Nazarene - Apart from the primary meaning of the Word, ‘an inhabitant of Nazareth,’ there may have been, as is often the case in prophetic quotations, a secondary meaning in allusion to the Heb. Word nçtser , ‘a branch,’ in which case the reference may have been to the Messianic passage Isaiah 11:1 ; or possibly the reference may have been to the Word nâtsar , ‘to save. The attempt to connect the Word with ‘Nazirite’ is etymologically impossible, and has no meaning as applied to Jesus Christ
Axe - Used in the Authorized Version of Deuteronomy 19:5 ; 20:19 ; 1 Kings 6:7 , as the translation of a Hebrew Word which means "chopping.

Likeness - Cognates of this Word appear in biblical Aramaic, Akkadian, and Arabic. ” All but 5 of the 25 appearances of this Word are in poetical or prophetical books of the Bible. ...
First, the Word means “pattern,” in the sense of the specifications from which an actual item is made: “Now King Ahaz went to Damascus … and saw the altar which was at Damascus; and King Ahaz sent to Urijah the priest the pattern of the altar and its model, according to all its workmanship” (2 Kings 16:10, NASB). 4:3 the Word represents the “shape” of a bronze statue: “And under it was the similtude of oxen, which did compass it round about: ten in a cubit, compassing the sea round about. 1:10, for example, the Word represents the “form” or “likeness” of the faces of the living creatures Ezekiel describes. 1:26 the Word refers to what something seemed to be rather than what it was: “And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne. 58:4 the Word appears to function merely to extend the form but not the meaning of the preposition ke: “Their poison is like the poison of a serpent
Emerods - This Word occurs, likewise, in Deuteronomy 28:27 ; and it is worthy of remark, that it is every where explained in the keri, or marginal readings, by the Aramaean Word, טחרים ; an expression which, in the Syriac dialect, where it occurs under the forms, טוראח and טחירא , means the fundament, and likewise the effort which is made in an evacuation of the system. The authors, therefore, of the reading in the keri appear to have assented to the opinion of Josephus, and to have understood by this Word the dysentery. The corresponding Arabic Words mean a swelling, answering somewhat in its nature to the hernia in men: a disease, consequently, very different from the hemorrhoids, which some persons understand to be meant by the Word עפלים . Among other objections, it may also be observed, that the mice, which are mentioned, not only in the Hebrew text, 1 Samuel 6:5 ; 1 Samuel 6:12 ; 1 Samuel 16:18 , but also in the Alexandrine and Vulgate versions, 1 Samuel 5:6 ; 1 Samuel 6:5 ; 1 Samuel 6:11 ; 1 Samuel 6:18 , are an objection to understanding the hemorrhoids by the Word under consideration, since if that were in fact the disease, we see no reason why mice should have been presented as an offering to avert the anger of the God of Israel. Lichtenstein has given this solution: The Word, עכפרים , which is rendered mice, he supposes to mean venomous solpugas, which belong to the spider class, and yet are so large, and so similar in their form to mice, as to admit of their being denominated by the same Word

Burden - Besides the common use of this Word, it occurs at the commencement of several prophecies; as 'The burden of Babylon,' 'the burden of Moab.

Paradise - " The LXX, or Greek translators of the Old Testament, make use of the Word paradise, when they speak of the garden of Eden, which Jehovah planted at the creation, and in which he placed our first parents. There are three places in the Hebrew text of the Old Testament where this Word is found, namely, Nehemiah 2:8 ; Song of Solomon 4:13 ; Ecclesiastes 2:5 . The term paradise is obviously used in the New Testament, as another Word for heaven; by our Lord, Luke 23:43 ; by the Apostle Paul, 2 Corinthians 12:4 ; and in the Apocalypse, Revelation 2:7
Ransom - , except in Exodus 21:30 , the Word is kopher, lit. 'a covering,' a cognate Word to ka phar, often translated 'atonement. The Word occurs also in Exodus 30:12 ; Job 36:18 ; Proverbs 6:35 ; Proverbs 13:8 ; Proverbs 21:18 ; Isaiah 43:3

In the proper, canonical sense of the Word, religious men professed of the solemn vows, or the professed of simple vows in an order in which solemn vows are made, e. In its less restricted and more general usage the Word is applied to all religious men, both of orders and congregations; hence it is frequently used to designate priests who are also religious and thus bound by rule, in contradistinction to diocesan or secular clergy united by no rule. When used in the phrase "Clerks Regular" the Word refers to those religious, as the Theatines and the Jesuits, who are not monks in the proper use of the term, to distinguish them from the members of the older monastic orders, as the Benedictines
Badgers' Skins - It is almost certain the Word tahash is mistranslated ‘badger,’ as badgers, though found in Southern Palestine, are not common enough, nor are their skins suitable for such use to have been made of them. ]'>[3] tahshan = ‘wether,’ thinks it probable that the Word means the same in Hebrew. Word tahash is taken from the Egyp

Heresy, Heretic - The Word αἱρεσιςis from 'to choose. ' The same Greek Word is translated 'sect' and is applied to the sects among the Jews, as the Sadducees and the Pharisees. The root of the Greek Word being 'to choose' shows that a heresy is something peculiar . God having given in His Word all things needed for the church, there is no room for man's choice or man's will: he must be a humble receiver: cf
Thief - The same Greek Word is translated 'robber' in the A. This is the Word employed in the expression "as a thief in the night," to which the unexpected coming of the Lord to the world is compared. The Word 'thief' in the A. is always this Word except in the passages quoted under No
New - Besides the Word πρόσφατος, for the newly-made and living way in Hebrews 10:20 ; and the Word ἄγναφος for the new (unfulled, unfinished) cloth in Matthew 9:16 ; Mark 2:21 ; there are two Words translated 'new,' the difference between which is important. Except in the Gospels, in reference to the wine as above, the Word νέος is used only in 1 Corinthians 5:7 , 'a new lump;' Colossians 3:10 , 'the new [1];' Hebrews 12:24 , 'the new covenant;' and Titus 2:4 , 'young woman. ' In all other places the Word employed is καινός, and this is important, as indicating the entirely different character of the new covenant, the new creation, the new man, the new heavens and the new earth, etc

Blessing And Cursing - are primary biblical emphases, as reflected in the 516 uses of Words such as bless (132), blessed (285), blesses (10), blessing (70), and blessings (19); and the 199 occurrences of such Words as curse (97), cursed (74), curses (19), and cursing (9). ...
The English Word “bless” is often used to translate barak . The Word means “to kneel” (2 Chronicles 6:13 ; Psalm 95:6 ) and thus “to bless” (Genesis 27:33 ; Exodus 18:10 ; Deuteronomy 28:4 ). Normally, however, when used as a verb, the Word is in the passive voice (“be blessed”), as though to suggest that persons do not have in themselves the power to bless. ...
Words of blessing also are used as a salutation or greeting, with an invocation of blessing as a stronger greeting than “peace” (shalom , Genesis 48:20 ). ...
In the New Testament, the Word “bless” often translates makarios , meaning “blessed, fortunate, happy. ” The special characteristic of New Testament uses of “bless” and related Words is close relationship to the religious joy people experience from being certain of salvation and thus of membership in the kingdom of God. Especially is “blessed” well known for Jesus' references to the Word in the Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-11 ) and His congratulations to those who respond positively to the kingdom of God (Matthew 23:39 ; Matthew 24:46 ; Mark 11:9 ; Luke 10:23 ; Luke 14:15 ). In contrast to frequent usage in the first three Gospels (52 occurrences) the Gospel of John uses the Word “blessed” in only three places (John 12:13 ; John 13:17 ; John 20:29 ). ...
Elsewhere, Pauline literature uses the Word: “Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered” (Romans 4:7 ); “Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort” (2 Corinthians 1:3 ). John often used the Word in Revelation: “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the Words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein for the time is at hand” (Revelation 1:3 ); “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord” (Revelation 14:13 ; cf. Of the 199 biblical uses of the Words, 180 are in the Old Testament and only 19 in the New Testament. ...
An early Word for “curse” in the Old Testament is arar and is used primarily in poetic and legal sections of the Old Testament. The Word appears n the call of Abraham, “and curse him that curseth thee” ( Genesis 12:3 ). Later the same Word refers to cursing the priests: “If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the Lord of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart” (Malachi 2:2 ). ...
Another Word used for “curse” in the Old Testament (qalal ) has less severe implications, although it probably came to be used as a synonym for the harsher term (arar ). The basic meaning of the Word is light, insignificant, or trifling. The Word also means to treat with contempt (2 Samuel 19:44 ; Isaiah 23:9 ) or to dishonor (Isaiah 8:21 ). ...
The unique concept of the spoken Word, especially in the context of worship or other formal settings, is important for understanding the significance of both cursing and blessing. According to Old Testament thought patterns, the formally spoken Word had both an independent existence and the power of its own fulfillment. The Word once spoken assumed a history of its own, almost a personality of itself. The Word also had the power of its own fulfillment. Both of these concepts are fundamental to understanding Isaiah's emphasis on God's Word: “For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: so shall my Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I send it” (Isaiah 55:10-11 ; cf. The Word of God exists as a reality and has within itself the power of its own fulfillment. Formal Words of blessing or cursing also had the same power of self-fulfillment

Deliverer - In the Acts and Epistles the Word ‘deliverer’ occurs only twice. Once (Acts 7:35) the original Word is ὁ λυτρωτής and once (Romans 11:26) it is ὁ ῥυόμενος. The reference in Acts is to Moses, and so does not specifically concern us here, except that the Word is one of a group (λύτρον, ἀντίλυτρον, λυτρόω, ἀπολύτρωσις) used of the redemptive work of Christ. In the Koine the Word λύτρον usually meant the purchase-money for the manumission of slaves (A. In the Septuagint (Psalms 19:14; Psalms 68:35) the Word λυτρωτής is used of God Himself, and the λύτρωσις wrought by Christ is illustrated by that wrought by Moses (Luke 1:68; Luke 2:38, Hebrews 9:12, Titus 2:14), and that notion may have influenced Luke’s choice of the Word in Acts 7:35 (R. ’ The Word ῥύω means properly ‘to draw,’ and so the middle voice is ‘to draw to one’s self for shelter,’ ‘to rescue. ’ The Word emphasizes the power of Christ as our Deliverer, ἐκ τῆς ὀργῆς τῆς ἐρχομένης. This Word ῥύομαι is the most frequent one for deliverance by God. It is the Word for our rescue from the power of darkness in Colossians 1:13. The Word is ἐξαιρέομαι, ‘to take out from,’ while in Hebrews 2:15 the Word for deliverance from the fear of death is ἀπαλλάσσω, ‘to set free from. ’...
These Words are simply those that in the Revised Version happen to be translated by ‘deliver’ in English

The Word was used in connexion with the Eleusinian mysteries (M‘Clintock-Strong, Cyclopedia, article ‘Neophyte’), and among the Romans for ‘a newly acquired slave’ (CE Stomacher - The Hebrew Word so translated, (Isaiah 3:24 ) describes some article of female attire, the character of which is a mere matter of conjecture

Apple, Apple Tree - This is generally supposed to refer to the citron but apples grow in Palestine, and the Arabicname for the apple (tuffuh ) differs little from the Hebrew Word, tappuach . In Proverbs 25:11 "a Word fitly spoken" is like some elegant device, as "apples of gold in pictures [1] of silver
a'Sia - The passages in the New Testament where this Word occurs are the following; ( Acts 2:9 ; 6:9 ; 16:6 ; 19:10,22,26,27 ; 20:4,16,18 ; 21:27 ; 27:2 ; Romans 16:5 ; 1 Corinthians 16:19 ; 2 Corinthians 1:8 ; 2 Timothy 1:15 ; 1 Peter 1:1 ; Revelation 1:4,11 ) In all these it may be confidently stated that the Word is used for a Roman province which embraced the western part of the peninsula of Asia Minor and of which Ephesus was the capital

(II) "The Personal Word," a title of the Son of God; this identification is substantiated by the statements of doctrine in John 1:1-18 , declaring in verses John 1:1,2 (1) His distinct and superfinite Personality, (2) His relation in the Godhead (pros, "with," not mere company, but the most intimate communion), (3) His deity; in John 1:3 His creative power; in John 1:14 His incarnation ("became flesh," expressing His voluntary act; not as AV, "was made"), the reality and totality of His human nature, and His glory "as of the only begotten from the Father," RV (marg. , many ancient authorities read "God only begotten,"), which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared Him," thus fulfilling the significance of the title "Logos," the "Word," the personal manifestation, not of a part of the Divine nature, but of the whole Deity (see IMAGE). ...
The title is used also in 1 John 1:1 , "the Word of life" combining the two declarations in John 1:1,4 and Revelation 19:13 (for 1 John 5:7 see THREE). ...
2: ῥῆμα (Strong's #4487 — Noun Neuter — rhema — hray'-mah ) denotes "that which is spoken, what is uttered in speech or writing;" in the singular, "a Word," e. , John 3:34 ; 8:20 ; Acts 2:14 ; 6:11,13 ; 11:14 ; 13:42 ; 26:25 ; Romans 10:18 ; 2 Peter 3:2 ; Jude 1:17 ; it is used of the Gospel in Romans 10:8 (twice),17, RV, "the Word of Christ" (i. , the "word" which preaches Christ); 10:18; 1 Peter 1:25 (twice); of a statement, command, instruction, e. , Matthew 26:75 ; Luke 1:37 , RV, "(no) Word (from God shall be void of power);" Luke 1:38 ; Acts 11:16 ; Hebrews 11:3 . ...
The significance of rhema (as distinct from logos) is exemplified in the injunction to take "the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God," Ephesians 6:17 ; here the reference is not to the whole Bible as such, but to the individual scripture which the Spirit brings to our remembrance for use in time of need, a prerequisite being the regular storing of the mind with Scripture. ...
Notes: (1) Epos, "a Word," is used in a phrase in Hebrews 7:9 , lit. , "(as to say) a Word," RV, "(so to) say," AV, "(as I may so) say;" logos is reasoned speech, rhema, an utterance, epos, "the articulated expression of a thought" (Abbott-Smith). (2) In Romans 16:18 , AV, chrestologia, "useful discourse" (chrestos, "beneficial"), is rendered "good Words" Nettle - Many have supposed that some thorny or prickly plant is intended by this Word, such as the bramble, the thistle, the wild plum, the cactus or prickly pear, etc. Tristram thinks that this Word "designates the prickly acanthus (Acanthus spinosus), a very common and troublesome weed in the plains of Palestine. This Word has been regarded as denoting thorns, thistles, wild camomile; but probably it is correctly rendered "nettle," the Urtica pilulifera, "a tall and vigorous plant, often 6 feet high, the sting of which is much more severe and irritating than that of our common nettle

Unicorn - It was in reality a two-horned animal; but the exact reference of the Word so rendered (reem) is doubtful. Most probably, however, the Word denotes the Bos primigenius ("primitive ox"), which is now extinct all over the world. The Word thus rendered has been found in an Assyrian inscription written over the wild ox or bison, which some also suppose to be the animal intended (Compare Deuteronomy 33:17 ; Psalm 22:21 ; 29:6 ; 92:10 )
Pit - Translation of twelve Hebrew and two Greek Words in KJV for water reservoir, ditch, or place of destruction. Many times the Word was used as a synonym for a place of destruction (Psalm 55:23 ), corruption (Psalm 16:10 ; Psalm 49:9 ; Isaiah 38:17 ), or death (Isaiah 14:15 ; Jonah 2:6 ). Three times KJV translated the Word Sheol as “pit” ( Numbers 16:30 ,Numbers 16:30,16:33 ; Job 17:16 ). One Greek Word is translated “bottomless pit” in Revelation 9:1-2 (cf

Seed - This Word is differently used in Scripture—sometimes in figure, and at others literally. It is used in a way of figure when spoken of the Word of God; thus Christ compares his Word to "seed cast into the ground
Fly - In Psalm 78:45 , and Psalm 105:31 , this Word is rendered in the A. The Word zebub is considered to be a part of the Word BAAL-ZEBUB,the idol-god of Ekron, 'the lord of the fly,' who it was thought could protect persons from its bite

Lion - ” This apparently Aramaic loan Word finds a cognate only in Aramaic. The Word represents a “full-grown lion. ”...
This Word should be compared to: (1) gur ( Goat-Demons - ” This Word occurs 4 times in biblical Hebrew. In its first biblical appearance, the Word represents “goat-demons” (some scholars translate it “goat-idols”): “And they shall no more offer their sacrifices unto devils [1], after whom they have gone a whoring” ( Word represents beings that were objects of pagan worship
a'Riel - ) The Word occurs also in reference to two Moabites slain by Benaiah. (2 Samuel 23:20 ; 1 Chronicles 11:22 ) Many regard the Word as an epithet, "lion-like;" but it seems better to look upon it as a proper name, and translate "two [1] of Ariel. On the whole it seems most probable that, as a name given to Jerusalem, Ariel means "lion of God," whilst the Word used by Ezekiel, (Ezekiel 43:15,16 ) means "hearth of God
Gall - In many other places, where a different Word is used in the original, it refers to some better and noxious plant, according to some, the poppy. In Hosea 10:4 Amos 6:12 , the Hebrew Word is translated "hemlock". The Word gall is often used figuratively for great troubles, wickedness, depravity, etc
Earth - In both Hebrew and Greek the same Word is used to denote the earth as a whole, and a particular land. ...
Thus in Matthew 27:45 we might, so far as the original Word is concerned, render either "there was darkness over all the land," or over all the earth. The Word is used of the whole world, etc
Advocate, the, - This Word signifies one who takes up the cause of another. The same Greek Word is translated 'Comforter' in John 14:16,26 ; John 15:26 ; John 16:7 . From this we learn that the Word applies both to the Lord Jesus and to the Holy Spirit

This Word is used metaphorically also for strength (Deuteronomy 33:17 ) and honour (Job 16:15 ; Lamentations 2:3 )
Catholic - The Word "Catholic" was very early adopted as descriptiveof the Church founded by our Lord and His Apostles. ...
Again, the Word Catholic is used as being descriptive of theorthodoxy of any particular Church or individual as being inagreement with the one, undivided Church which has expresseditself in the Ecumenical or General Councils. ...
The Word is, also, used to describe that which is believed on theAuthority of the Church, as for example, the doctrine of the BlessedTrinity is a catholic doctrine because it is the universallyaccepted teaching of the Church and having the sure warrant of HolyScripture. ...
Thus we learn that the Word catholic is a very significant termand sets forth the real nature of the Church and her teachings. "...
This Word, then, so greatly misunderstood, so wrongly used, yetmeaning what it does, ought to be used with thoughtful care
Law - The Word is properly used, in Scripture as elsewhere, to express a definite commandment laid down by any recognized authority; but when the Word is used with the article, and without any Words of limitation, it refers to the expressed will to God, and in nine cases out of ten to the Mosaic law, or to the Pentateuch of which it forms the chief portion. The Hebrew Word torah (law) lays more stress on its moral authority, as teaching the truth and guiding in the right way; the Greek nomos (law), on its constraining power as imposed and enforced by a recognized authority. The sense of the Word, however, extends its scope and assumes a more abstracts character in the writings of St. The occasional use of the Word "law" (as in ( Romans 3:27 ) "law of faith") to denote an internal principle of action does not really mitigate against the general rule
Obedience - To hear God's Word and act accordingly. The Word translated “obey” in the Old Testament means “to hear” and is often so translated. In the New Testament, several Words describe obedience. One Word means “to hear or to listen in a state of submission. ” Another New Testament Word often translated “obey” means “to trust. ”...
The person's obedient response to God's Word is a response of trust or faith. Thus, to really hear God's Word is to obey God's Word (Exodus 19:5 ; Jeremiah 7:23 ). ...
The Bible views disobedience as a failure to hear and do God's Word (Psalm 81:11 ). Disobedience to God's Word comes from a sinful heart—a heart that will not trust God

Depth - The Word is most probably connected with a form of plesso, "to strike," and plege, "a blow," suggestive of the tossing of the waves. Some would connect it with plax, "a level board," but this is improbable, and less applicable to the general usage of the Word, which commonly denotes the sea in its restless character

The Jews, that they may obscure this plain text, and weaken this proof of the truth of the Christian religion, pretend that the Hebrew Word signifies a young woman, and not a virgin. Because this Word constantly denotes a virgin in all other passages of Scripture in which it is used
Jehovah - , Lord), thus using another Word in its stead. The Massorets gave to it the vowel-points appropriate to this Word. The meaning of the Word appears from Exodus 3:14 to be "the unchanging, eternal, self-existent God," the "I am that I am," a convenant-keeping God. ) The Hebrew name "Jehovah" is generally translated in the Authorized Version (and the Revised Version has not departed from this rule) by the Word LORD printed in small capitals, to distinguish it from the rendering of the Hebrew Adonai And the Greek Kurios , Which are also rendered Lord, but printed in the usual type. The Hebrew Word is translated "Jehovah" only in Exodus 6:3 ; Psalm 83:18 ; Isaiah 12:2 ; 26:4 , and in the compound names mentioned below
Beast - ” A cognate of this Word appears in Arabic. 9:25, this Word clearly embraces even the larger “animals,” all the animals in Egypt: “And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast. …” In 1 Kings 4:33, this Word seems to exclude birds, fish, and reptiles: “He [1] spake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes. ”...

Midst - ” This Word, which also appears in Ugaritic, occurs about 418 times in biblical Hebrew and in all periods. In many contexts the Word means “among,” not necessarily in the middle: “… And he [3] lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among [2] his servants” ( Word “through”: “But the children of Israel walked upon dry land in the midst of the sea. …” The idea “within” can be emphasized with the addition of Words like tâvek, “belly, inwards,” or leb, “heart”: “… My heart is like wax, it is melted in the midst of my bowels” ( Word also sometimes means simply “in” in the sense of “mixed into something”: “And they did beat the gold into thin plates, and cut it into wires, to work it in the blue …” ( Word in its first biblical occurrence: “And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters” ( Word means “in the center”: “And ye shall measure from without the city on the east side two thousand cubits, and on the south side two thousand cubits, and on the west side two thousand cubits, and on the north side two thousand cubits; and the city shall be in the midst. …” In other passages this Word signifies the hypothetical center line dividing something into two equal parts: “And he [5] took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another …” ( Word occurs only 7 times without a preceding preposition
Testament - The Word is not found in the OT. Word diathçkç , elsewhere rendered ‘covenant’ (with ‘testament’ in the margin). ’ An indication of the difficulty involved in its interpretation is given in the marginal note: ‘The Greek Word here used signifies both covenant and testament . ’ The latter Word connotes an agreement between two persons regarded as being on an equal footing ( syn- ); hence it is unsuitable as a designation of God’s gracious covenants with men. Word for ‘covenant’ ( bĕrîth ), its most frequent application being to the Divine covenants, which are not matters of mutual arrangement between God and His people, but are rather ‘analogous to the disposition of property by testament. But, as Ramsay has pointed out, there was a development in the meaning of the Word after the publication of the LXX
The Revisers’ preference for ‘testament’ in Hebrews 9:16 f. Paul ( Galatians 3:15 ) with an analogy; like God’s Word, it was ‘irrevocable. This use of the Latin Word is the explanation of the fact that, as early as the second cent of our era, the books of the Old and New Covenants were spoken of as the Old and New Testaments
Say, Speak, Answer - Elsewhere the Word means “to say” or “to see. ‘Âmar refers to the simple act of communicating with the spoken Word. Usually the Word is used of direct speech (“say”), although it may be used of indirect speech as well (“speak”). 1:3—the first occurrence of the Word). ...
In addition to these frequently occurring connotations, 'âmar is rendered with many Words representing variom aspects of spoken communication, such as “appoint” or “assign” (1 Kings 11:18), “mention” or “name” ( Word can imply the act of thinking within oneself ( Words “says the Lord. ...

The Word appears about 125 times in biblical Hebrew and in all periods. This Word commonly represents a human “bone. 20:9, where the Word used by itself (and in the plural form) probably represents the prophet’s entire “bodily frame”: “Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his Word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones. Here the Word is synonymously parallel to “I. ”...
This Word is frequently used of the “bones of the dead”: “And whosoever toucheth one that is slain with a sword in the open fields, or a dead body, or a bone of a man, or a grave, shall be unclean seven days” ( Word sometimes stands for the “substance of a thing”: “And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness [3]” (Job 21:23, the Word means “full”: “One dieth in his full strength

Word means “to be finished or completed” in Hell - This is a Saxon Word, which is derived from a verb which signifies to hide or conceal. In the Hebrew Scriptures the Word sheol frequently occurs, and uniformly, he thinks, denotes the state of the dead in general, without regard to the virtuous or vicious characters of the persons, their happiness or misery. In translating that Word, the LXX have almost invariably used the Greek term αιδης , hades, which means the receptacle of the dead, and ought rarely to have been translated hell, in the sense in which we now use it, namely, as the place of torment. To denote this latter object, the New Testament writers always make use of the Greek Word γεεννα , which is compounded of two Hebrew Words, Ge Hinnom, that is, "The Valley of Hinnom," a place near Jerusalem, in which children were cruelly sacrificed by fire to Moloch, the idol of the Ammonites, 2 Chronicles 33:6 . In this sense, also, the Word gehenna, a synonymous term, is always to be understood in the New Testament, where it occurs about a dozen times. The confusion that has arisen on this subject has been occasioned not only by our English translators having rendered the Hebrew Word sheol and the Greek Word gehenna frequently by the term hell; but the Greek Word hades, which occurs eleven times in the New Testament, is, in every instance, except one, translated by the same English Word, which it ought never to have been. The Word hell is also used by our translators for gehenna, which means the world of future punishment, "How shall ye escape the damnation of hell, κρισεως της γεεννης ?"...

Second, the Word signifies “remotest time” or “remote time. In other passages, the Word means “from (in) olden times”: “… Mighty men which were of old, men of renown” ( Word is used hyperbolically meaning “for a long time”: “I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself. …” This Word may include all the time between the ancient beginning and the present: “The prophets that have been before me and before thee of old prophesied …” ( Word can mean “long ago” (from long ago): “For [3] I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands …” ( Word means “formerly; in ancient times. ” The Word is used in Word is used without a preposition and in a genitive relationship to some other noun. ...
With the preposition ’ad, the Word can mean “into the indefinite future”: “An Ammonite or Moabite shall not enter into the congregation of the Lord; even to their tenth generation shall they not enter into the congregation of the Lord for ever” (
Word (used absolutely) means the “most distant future”: “And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature. …” In other places, the Word means “without beginning, without end, and evercontinuing”: “Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength” ( Word is an intensive form

Christ - The Word Χριστος , signifies anointed from χριω , I anoint. Sometimes the Word Christ is used singly, by way of autonomasis, to denote a person sent from God, as an anointed prophet, king, or priest. But the most eminent application of the Word is to that illustrious personage, typified and predicted from the beginning, who is described by the prophets, under the character of God's Anointed, the Messiah, or the Christ. The Word Christ was at first as much an appellative as the Word Baptist, and the one was as regularly accompanied with the article as the other. " The article, in such expressions as occur in Acts 17:3 ; Acts 18:5 ; Acts 18:28 , adds considerable light to them, and yet no more than what the Words of the historian manifestly convey to every reader who understands his language. Should it be asked, Is the Word Christ never to be understood in the New Testament as a proper name, but always as having a direct reference to the office or dignity? it may be replied, that this Word came at length, from the frequency of application to one individual, and only to one, to supply the place of a proper name. During his life, it does not appear that the Word was ever used in this manner; nay, the contrary is evident from several passages of the Gospels. The evangelists wrote some years after the period above mentioned; and therefore they adopted the practice common among Christians at that time, which was to employ the Word as a surname for the sake of distinction

The Word has several usages in the New Testament, but never has the technical sense of “heresy” as we understand it today. In 1 Corinthians 11:19 , where he was writing about the disgraceful way in which the Corinthians were observing the Lord's Supper, the Word has to do with the outward manifestations of the factions he mentioned in 1 Corinthians 11:18 .

There may be an indication of this in Nahum 1:15 , where the Word translated "the wicked one" is Belial. ...
The oldest form of the Word is "Beliar," possibly from a phrase signifying "Lord of the forest," or perhaps simply a corruption of the form "Belial," due to harsh Syriac pronunciation
Quarry - I know not whether the original sense of this Word was a pit or mine, from digging, or whether the sense was a place for squaring stone. We generally apply the Word mine to the pit from which are taken metals and coal from quarries are taken stones for building, as marble, freestone, slate, &c. A low Word and not much used

The Word may be used of the place where a journey begins: “Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way …” ( Word may have a temporal significance meaning “beginning” or “first. 16:7 the Word describes the “first” in a whole series of acts: “Then on that day David delivered first this psalm to thank the Lord into the hand of Asaph and his brethren. ” The abstract Word rê'shı̂yth corresponds to the temporal and estimative sense of ro’sh. …” This Word can represent a point of departure, as it does in Word can mean the “first” or “choicest”: “The first of the first fruits of thy land thou shalt bring into the house of the Lord thy God” ( Word can mean “first fruits”: “As for the oblation of the first fruits, ye shall offer them unto the Lord: but they shall not be burnt on the altar for a sweet savor” ( Word represents the “first part” of an offering: “Ye shall offer up a cake of the first of your dough for a heave offering …” ( Word occurs about 182 times in biblical Hebrew. 33:2 uses this Word locally: “And he put the handmaids and their children foremost, and Leah and her children after, and Rachel and Joseph hindermost
Chiun - The translation of the Word as an appellative (‘pedestal’) by some is due to the vocalization of the Massoretes, who are supposed to have considered it a common noun. However, it is far more probable that they, conscious of its reference, substituted for the original vowels those of the Word shiqqûts (‘abomination’) an epithet often applied to strange gods
Holiday - ” Over the centuries the Word was contracted into the present Word “holiday
Fat - ...
In Joel 2:24 the Word is equivalent to "vat," a vessel. The hebrew Word here thus rendered is elsewhere rendered "wine-fat" and "press-fat" ( Haggai 2:16 ; Isaiah 63:2 )

Ordain - Though a common Word in the traditional language of the church, ‘ordain’ is not common in the Bible. The Word usually means ‘appoint’, as for example when Jesus appointed apostles (Mark 3:13-14; John 15:16; see APOSTLE), and the apostles appointed church leaders (Acts 6:3; Acts 6:6; Acts 14:23; see DEACON; ELDER)

The town seems to have given its name to a district, as appears from 1 Kings 15:20 , where the plural form of the Word is used
Barbarian - Word is used in Acts 28:2 ; Acts 28:4 , Romans 1:14 , 1 Corinthians 14:11 , Colossians 3:11 to translate a Gr. Word which does not at all connote savagery, but means simply ‘foreign,’ ‘speaking an unintelligible language
Lehabim - see), whether the Word is an alternative traditional pronunciation of the name of this people, or whether, as is more probable, the form here given is due to textual corruption. The fact that Lubim or Libyans is a fairly common Word, and that it is not found in the ethnological list of Genesis 10:1-32 , where it would naturally appear in the place of Lehabim, adds something to the evidence of identity
Meonenim, Oak of - It is agreed that the rendering should be ‘oak of the diviners,’ but the derivation of the Word mĕ‘ônĕnîm is uncertain. There is a cognate Arabic Word, however, which is used of the hum of insects and the whispering of leaves, and it is tempting, therefore, to connect me‘ônĕnîm with such a phenomenon as the ‘sound of a marching in the tops of the balsams’ of 2 Samuel 5:24 , where the rustling of the leaves is the sign of the presence of Jahweh, as the rustling of the leaves of the oaks of Dodona proclaimed the will of Zeus
Moment - This Word is contracted from motamentum, or some other Word,the radical verb of which signified to move, rush, drive or fall suddenly, which sense gives that of force

Pastor - the Word is raah, 'to feed,' and refers to those who should have succoured God's people. The pastor is one of the gifts in the church, Ephesians 4:11 ; he is one who is gifted to help on the saints individually, enter into their trials and difficulties, and bring the Word to instruct and comfort them, or to remonstrate with and counsel them if needed
Palestina, Palestine - The Hebrew Word, Pelesheth, occurs but four times, and did not allude to the whole of the land of Canaan, as the name Palestine is now applied; but was restricted to part of the coast of the Mediterranean, occupied by the Philistines. In these passages, and in Isaiah 14:29,31 , it is usual now to translate the Word PHILISTIA (as in the R
Satyr - The Word is sair , which signifies 'hairy one,' and hence a 'he goat. The Word is translated 'satyr' in Isaiah 13:21 ; Isaiah 34:14 , both passages referring to places brought to utter desolation, so that they are inhabited by wild beasts, owls, and perhaps 'wild goats' are intended; or that the desolation would be such that men would shun them as if haunted by unearthly beings

Bittern - According to some critics, the more probable meaning of the Hebrew Word is hedge-hog, or porcupine; and Mr. Rich says he found "great quantities" of porcupine quills among the ruins of Babylon; but others think this inconsistent with Zephaniah 2:14 , and understand the Word is referring to the common night-heron, a bird like the bittern found among the marshes of Western Asia, resorting to ruined buildings, and uttering a peculiar harsh cry before and after its evening flight
Mouth - "The rod of his mouth," Isaiah 11:4 , and the sharp sword, Revelation 1:16 , denote the power of Christ's Word to convict, control, and judge; compare Isaiah 49:2 Hebrews 4:12 . The Hebrew Word for mouth is often translated "command," Genesis 45:21 Job 39:27 Ecclesiastes 8:2 ; and the unclean spirits out of the mouth of the dragon, Revelation 16:14 , are the ready executors of his commands
Eglath-Shelishiyah - ]'>[1] takes the Word to be a proper name, giving in margin the alternative tr. ’ It is still somewhat uncertain whether the Word is an appellative or a proper name, although the latter view has commended itself to the majority of modern scholars

Mean - ) have a note as follows: "This Word occurs perpetually in the papyri to denote a man who is 'not distinguished' from his neighbors by the convenient scars on eyebrow or arm or right shin, which identify so many individuals in formal documents. " Deissmann suggests that the Word may have been the technical term for "uncircumcised," among the Greek Egyptians
Maker - , "one who works for the people" (from demos, "people," ergon, "work;" an ancient inscription speaks of the magistrates of Tarsus as demiourgoi: the Word was formerly used thus regarding several towns in Greece; it is also found used of an artist), came to denote, in general usage, a builder or "maker," and is used of God as the "Maker" of the heavenly city, Hebrews 11:10 . In that passage the first Word of the two, technites, denotes "an architect, designer," the second, demiourgos, is the actual Framer; the city is the archetype of the earthly one which God chose for His earthly people
Golgotha - The name Golgotha, which is a transliteration of an Aramaic Word meaning ‘skull’, was the name of the hill just outside Jerusalem where Jesus was crucified (Matthew 27:33; Luke 23:33; John 19:17). It comes from the Latin Word for ‘skull’
Host - ” This Word has cognates in either a verbal or noun form in Akkadian, Ugaritic, Arabic, and Ethiopic. ...
This Word involves several interrelated ideas: a group; impetus; difficulty; and force. 1:2-3 the Word means “military service”: “Take ye the sum of all the congregation of the children of Israel … from twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel. 22:12, where the Word represents serving in a military campaign: “And when the children of Israel heard of it, the whole congregation of the children of Israel gathered themselves together at Shiloh, to go to war against them. ”...
The Word can also represent an “army host”: “And Eleazer the priest said unto the men of war which went to the battle …” ( Word: great was the company of those that published it. Sometimes this phrase refers to the “host of heaven,” or the angels: “And [2] said, Hear thou therefore the Word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven [3] standing by him on his right hand and on his left” (1 Kings 22:19). 33:6: “By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. ” In Job 7:1 the Word represents the burdensome everyday “toil” of mankind: “Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? Are not his days also like the days of a hireling?” In Job 14:14 tsâbâ' seems to represent “forced labor. 10:1 the Word is used for “conflict”: “In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a Word was revealed to Daniel, who was named Belteshazzar. And the Word was true, and it was a great conflict” [5]. …” The Word is used in 2 Kings 25:19 to refer to “mustering an army

Tin - In Isaiah 1:25 the Word "tin" doubtless means a sort of dross

Kir'Ioth - (two cities ), a place in Moab the palaces of which were threatened by Amos with destruction by fire, ( Amos 2:2 ) unless indeed the Word means simply "the cities," which is probably the case also in (Jeremiah 48:4 )
Copper - The Word “copper” appears in the King James Version only in Ezra 8:27 and in the Word “coppersmith” in 2 Timothy 4:14 . On the other hand, the Word “brass” appears about 100 times in the King James Version. In most instances the same Hebrew Word is translated as “bronze” in the Revised Standard Version. ...
In the Old Testament the Hebrew Word for copper may refer to that basic metal or to bronze. However, if the metal for an object had to be melted and cast into a form, the Word meant bronze
Vanity - Neither in the OT nor in the NT is the Word ‘vanity’ used in the sense of self-conceit or vainglory (see Pride): it is always a rendering of ματαιότης, which is an essentially Scriptural Word, not being found in an ethical sense in the classical writers. Psalms 4:3; Psalms 39:6 and the famous Ecclesiastes 1:2 (‘vanity of vanities’), and concludes that in these cases, as in 2 Peter 2:10, the Word approximates to the Pauline use in Romans 8:20 (‘the creation was subjected to vanity’) and denotes what is simply passing and transient. On the other hand, in Psalms 26:4; Psalms 119:37; Psalms 144:8 and Ephesians 4:17 he is of opinion that the Word expresses moral instability, being used ‘of men without principle on whom no reliance can be placed. The Word is found in Barn. On the whole, an examination of the passages where ματαιότης and μάταιος are found as well as compound Words like ματαιολογία and ματαιοπνία tends to support the theory that ‘vanity,’ or ματαιότης (Heb. הֶבֶל, though in Septuagint the Word is also a rendering of שָׁוְא), denotes ‘either absence of purpose or failure to attain any true purpose’ (J
Legion - LEGION (λεγιών [1], a loan-word from the Latin legio, which meant originally a ‘gathering’ of the citizen army of Rome). —The Word ‘legion’ occurs in two contexts in the Gospels. ’ The present writer cannot recall any such use of the Word ‘legion’ in non-Christian authors. It seems certain also that in the NT the Word is not a translation of any Aramaic Word. The conclusion is that, if Aramaic is behind the passages where the Word occurs, the expression was imported into that language from Greek, and reveals the great impression made on the minds of Orientals by the vast organized unity of the Roman army, with which they had become acquainted since the Roman occupation of Syria by Pompey (b
Corban - We meet with this Word but once in the Bible. The Word Corban applied by the Jews to all voluntary gifts. It should seem to have been taken from the Word Karab, to give. (Matthew 23:18-19) As they used the Word Corban upon certain occasions, so they, sometimes, used the Word Mencha, which means offering, for all presentations to the temple. ...
The manner in which our Lord hath condemned the Jews, for the use of the Word Corban, plainly shews what a pretext, or covering, they made it to evade important duties
City - ” Cognates of this Word appear in Ugaritic, Phoenician, Sumerian, and old Arabic. The Word suggests a “village. ” An unwalled village is represented by the Hebrew Word chatser. Qiryat, a synonym of ‛ı̂yr is an Aramaic loanword. 4:17 (the first occurrence), the Word ‛ı̂yr means a “permanent dwelling center” consisting of residences of stone and clay. As a rule, there are no political overtones to the Word; ‛ı̂yr simply represents the “place where people dwell on a permanent basis. ...
This Word can represent “those who live in a given town”: “And when he came, lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside watching: for his heart trembled for the ark of God
Glass - This Word occurs Revelation 21:18 ; Revelation 21:21 ; and the adjective υαλινος , Revelation 4:6 ; Revelation 15:2 . Our translators have rendered the Hebrew Word מראת , in Exodus 38:8 , and Job 37:18 , "looking-glass. Thee Word looking-glass occurs in our version of Sir_12:11 , "Never trust thine enemy; for like as iron rusteth, so is his wickedness. The Word εσοπτρον , or mirror, occurs in 1 Corinthians 13:12 , and James 1:23 . But others are of opinion that the Word denotes a mirror of polished metal; as this, however, was liable to many imperfections, so that the object before it was not seen clearly or fully, the meaning of the Apostle is, that we see things as it were by images reflected from a mirror, which shows them very obscurely and indistinctly. In the latter place, a mirror undoubtedly is meant: "For if any be a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: for he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway he forgetteth what manner of man he was:" but in the former, 1 Corinthians 13:12 , semi- transparent glass such as that which we see in the ancient glass vases of the Romans is obviously intended. From this we may fully perceive the force of the Apostle's Words, "now we see through a glass darkly
Offer - ” This Word appears in nearly all branches of the Semitic languages from the earliest times and at all periods. 12:11 (the first biblical occurrence) the Word is used of spatial proximity, of being spatially close to something: “And it came to pass, when he was come near to enter into Egypt, that he said unto Sarai his wife. …” Usually the Word represents being so close to something (or someone) that the subject can see ( Word is also used of the imminence of foreboding events: “… Esau said in his heart, The days of mourning for my father are at hand [1] …” ( Word signifies armed conflict. 2:37) uses the Word technically, to close in battle. ...
In another technical use the Word represents every step one performs in presenting his offering and worship to God. The Word is also found in Ethiopic and old South Arabic. The first occurrence of the Word is used of an “offering” presented as a sacrifice: “If any man of you bring an offering unto the Lord, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock” ( Word qerab, which appears 8 times, is an Aramaic loan Word; it means “war, battle,” or the actual engaging in battle ( Word occurs about 77 times. 6:12: “He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword
Live - This Word may also mean “to bring to life” or “to cause to live”: “… I dwell … with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones” ( Word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. ” The use of this Word occurs only in the oath formula “as X lives,” literally, “by the life of X”: “And he said, They were my brethren, even the sons of my mother: as the Lord liveth, if ye had saved them alive, I would not slay you” ( Word: But as truly as I live, all the earth shall be filled with the glory of the Lord” ( Word, chayyah, means “living being” and is especially used of animals. When so used, it usually distinguishes wild and undomesticated from domesticated animals; the Word connotes that the animals described are untamed: “And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark …” ( Word may also connote “evil beast”: “Come now therefore, and let us slay him, and cast him into some pit, and we will say, Some evil beast hath devoured him …” ( Word describes land animals as distinct from birds and fish: “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth” ( Word is used of “living beings” in general: “Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures: ( Word is synonymous with the Hebrew Word nepesh. ...
The plural of the noun chay, chayyim, is a general Word for the state of living as opposed to that of death. In another nuance this Word suggests a special quality of “life,” life as a special gift from God (a gift of salvation): “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live” (
Word can represent “persons who are alive,” or living persons: “And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed” ( Word has cognates in Ugaritic, Canaanite, Phoenician, Punic, and Aramaic. ...
The Word chay is used both as an adjective and as a noun. 2:7
the Word used with the noun nepech (“soul, person, being”) means a “living” person: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. ” The same two Words are used in Words (bashar chay) are applied to dead, raw (skinned) animal flesh: “Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have [1] flesh of thee, but raw” ( Word in a figure of speech describing one’s wife; she is “a well of living waters” (4:15)
Effectual - "energy;" the Word "work" is derived from the same root). In Hebrews 4:12 it describes the Word of God as "active," RV (AV, "powerful"), i. In James 5:16 the RV omits the superfluous Word "effectual," and translates the sentence "the supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working," the verb being in the present participial form. For a fuller treatment of the Word, see WORK
Pit - This Word appears 37 times in the Bible with no occurrences in the Old Testament prophetic books. (By itself the Word does not always infer the presence of water. ) The Word refers to the “pit” itself whether dug or natural: “And Abraham reproved Abimelech because of a well of water, which Abimelech’s servants had violently taken away” ( Word was to represent more than a depository for the body but a place where one exists after death ( Apostasy - Though the Word 'apostasy' does not occur in the A. , the Greek Word occurs from which the English Word is derived. The same Word is used in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 , where it is taught that the day of the Lord could not come until there came 'the apostasy,' or the falling from Christianity in connection with the manifestation of the man of sin
Herd - ...
One meaning of the Word is “cattle. 13:5: “And Lot also, which went with Abram, had flocks, and herds [3] and tents. ” The Word can represent a “small group of cattle” (not a herd; cf. A single ox is indicated either by some other Hebrew Word or called an offspring of oxen ( Cattle - In its primary sense, the Word includes camels, horses, asses, all the varieties of domesticated horned beasts or the bovine genus, sheep of all kinds and goats, and perhaps swine. Hence it would appear that the Word properly signifies possessions, goods. But whether from a Word originally signifying a beast, for in early ages beasts constituted the chief part of a mans property, or from a root signifying to get or possess. This Word is restricted to domestic beasts but in England it includes horses, which it ordinarily does not, in the United States, at least not in New-England
Babe - , "without the power of speech," denotes "a little child," the literal meaning having been lost in the general use of the Word. It is used (a) of "infants," Matthew 21:16 ; (b) metaphorically, of the unsophisticated in mind and trustful in disposition, Matthew 11:25 and Luke 10:21 , where it stands in contrast to the wise; of those who are possessed merely of natural knowledge, Romans 2:20 ; of those who are carnal, and have not grown, as they should have done, in spiritual understanding and power, the spiritually immature, 1 Corinthians 3:1 , those who are so to speak partakers of milk, and "without experience of the Word of righteousness," Hebrews 5:13 ; of the Jews, who, while the Law was in force, were in state corresponding to that of childhood, or minority, just as the Word "infant" is used of a minor, in English law, Galatians 4:3 , "children;" of believers in an immature condition, impressionable and liable to be imposed upon instead of being in a state of spiritual maturity, Ephesians 4:14 , "children. " "Immaturity" is always associated with this Word
Beasts - This Word, used in contradistinction to man, denotes all animals besides, Psalm 36:6 , sometimes it means quadrupeds, and not creeping things, Leviticus 11:2-7 ; and sometimes domestic cattle, in distinction from wild creatures, Genesis 1:25 . Animals were classed in the law as clean or unclean, with a primary reference to animal sacrifices, Genesis 7:2 Leviticus 11:1-47 The Word beasts is figuratively used to symbolize various kings and nations, Psalm 74:14 Isaiah 27:1 Ezekiel 29:3 Daniel 7:1-28,8 Revelation 12:13 . The Hebrew Word commonly rendered beast signifies living creatures. In the book of Revelation two distinct Words are employed symbolically, both rendered "beast" in our version. this latter might be appropriately rendered, "living creature," as the corresponding Hebrew Word is in Ezekiel
