Ancient Hebrew Meaning of 'Bone'
« on: June 14, 2014, 04:32:25 AM »
The original word for 'bone' is which conveys the action of something binding beside, thus stiffening completely, taken from the at the beginning of the root meaning 'ascend' and at the end of the root meaning 'beside', with the added nuance of meaning 'complete'.

Picture it this way. If your body had no bones, you would be a blob on the floor. Bones add stiffness to your body, allowing you to be upright. This is true for every creature that has bones.

An interesting word that also comes from this is the word 'counsel', which is . Counsel is that which works or activates stiffness and uprightness in the form of verbal communication.

This is also true of an , the word for 'tree'. The letters describe anything that binds beside something providing stiffness and uprightness to it.

Perhaps this is why the righteous are likened to trees. :)

 :cloud9: Wow. I see this, too. Good stuff; for the love of God, DON'T STOP, lol.  :thumbsup: :banana:

Goes along with what He gave me concerning the scriptures being as the bones, to which celestial flesh is added (being bound along side?) to.

His body "hangs" upon the bones that have had all the flesh circumcised off of them. Blessings...

Thanks so much, Ronen,  for a quick and very helpful post.  I have been given several articles that discuss in great detail the skeletal system... etc. etc. etc....  I won't be able to complete my article  "Bones:  one flesh/one spirit" before July 1... but I've learned that my being off the Internet will not be as long as I had earlier anticipated... so perhaps even yet in July I will be back to post the article on bones.  Gen 2:23 and Eph 5:30 are the two Scriptures that form the basis for my article.  Joseph's bones as well as Ezekiel's vision of dry bones also have become part of my study...   and this study fits well into my ongoing study:  Physical realities reveal/teach Spiritual truths.  Again, thanks so much.  Peace, mercy, grace, light be yours in abundance.

  I love these  and did not know they were here !!   
 
   
 
 

I have a  Hebrew Greek  Key word study Bible       and used this or some years and though I am  some  dull with understanding them   
 
  I  want to say     you have sure added to the Greek meaning    that is now old but good to look at once again
 
 
 4717  Stauroo =  crucified      to impale on the cross figurativly (stauros, "a cross," "the crucifixion"; skolops, "a stake," "a pole")
 
    Aramaic Bible in Plain English
But The Messiah has redeemed us from the curse of The Written Law, and he became a curse in our place, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree"
 
    Jesus   Christ hung on the   tree of knowledge of Good and Evil , that we might have  right to the tree of Life 
 
   so helpful   by the littles as I can "get it"    :HeartThrob:
