Last Friday I shared a few words and their meanings and then challenged you to use them in a sentence. The sentences you left in my comments just had me in stitches. If you missed any of these, check out the comments from this post.
If you all keep this up, we may have to continue with these "word" posts until I just can't find anymore words to share. ;)
Here are the words for this week:
This word is used in Ezekial 9:2 - "And suddenly six men came from the direction of the upper gate, which faces north, each with his battle-ax in his hand. One man among them was clothed with linen and had a writer's inkhorn at his side. They went in and stood beside the bronze altar."
The meaning? An inkhorn is a round vessel or cup for containing ink. It was usually worn by writers on their clothing at their waist. They got their name because in earlier times ink was contained in horns.
We find this word used in 2 Chronicles 32:28 - "Storehouses also for the increase of corn, and wine, and oil; and stalls for all manner of beasts, and cotes for flocks."
It is a pen or enclosure for flocks.
This word can be found in Daniel 3:5 - "[That] at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
This word is a a Syrian stringed instrument resembling a harp.
