So, anyway.... on to this week's post. I thought I'd go back to a theme I started a few months ago where I look at the meaning of words that are found in the Bible. Words that maybe we aren't familiar with (or, at least, I am not familiar with) and provide a little info on them.
Here are the words for today:
"I also will do this unto you; I will even appoint over you terror, consumption, and the burning ague, that shall consume the eyes, and cause sorrow of heart: and ye shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it. " Leviticus 26:16
What does this word mean? Ague is an Old English word that means "fever".
"Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as [out] of a seething pot or caldron." Job 41:20
Any idea what this words means? A seething pot was a large vessel that was used for boiling provisions.
"And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece." John 2:6
What might a firkin be? It was a measure for liquids of about 8 7/8 gallons of water. Or, about the equivalent of a bath.
I pray you all have a wonderful weekend... full of laughter, relaxation, fun, worship, and joy!
