I'm back this week with another fun post about words. Words we see in the Bible, but might not know what they mean. So, here are the words for this week.....
"And thou shalt take all the fat that covereth the inwards, and the caul [that is] above the liver, and the two kidneys, and the fat that [is] upon them, and burn [them] upon the altar." Exodus 29:13
What is this? This would be the membrane that covers the upper part of the liver.
"The children of Bazlith, the children of Mehida, the children of Harsha..." Nehemiah 7:54
The meaning of this word? A worker or enchanter.
"But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there." Isaiah 13:21
What does this word mean? In Greek mythology this is a creature composed of a man and a goat and is supposed to inhabit wild and desolate regions. When used in this scripture in Isaiah the meaning is that the place referenced shall become a desolate waste.
I hope you enjoyed a little fun with words today. And, if you're up to it, go ahead and see if you can use any of them in a sentence. I'll come back next Friday with my attempt to use them in a sentence.
Have a great weekend!
