Rebuilding Biblical Foundations in 2020: A Year Long Study of Genesis 1 - Day 3 Week 5/53 : EARTH
The earth, as a planet
Occurs 1 times in 1 verses in the Hebrew concordance of the KJV
We are continuing our study today of the Key Word Earth. Yesterday, we learned many times one word in the Biblical Text may have multiple meanings. We learned the Key Word Earth is liken to the word brush. Often times the word brush is something we use to maintain and or manage the hair on our head. But there are other times the word brush is equivalent to a pile of gathered weeds waiting to be burned.
Nevertheless, the Biblical Key Word Earth has at least eight different meanings in the King James Version of the Biblical text.
Today, we are focusing on the Aramaic language which use occurs one time in one verse of The Holy Word of God! This occurrence is found in the Book of Daniel, the second chapter verse ten through eleven. Let's look at several translations of this verse, starting with the KJV.
The Chaldeans answered before the king, and said, There is not a man upon the earth that can shew the king's matter: therefore there is no king, lord, nor ruler, that asked such things at any magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
The Chaldeans [diviners] answered before the king and said, There is not a man on earth who can show the king this matter, for no king, lord, or ruler has [ever] asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or Chaldean.
The astrologers replied to the king, “No one on earth can tell the king his dream! And no king, however great and powerful, has ever asked such a thing of any magician, enchanter, or astrologer! 11 The king’s demand is impossible. No one except the gods can tell you your dream, and they do not live here among people.”
The Chaldeans answered the king and said, “There is not a man on earth who can meet the king's demand, for no great and powerful king has asked such a thing of any magician or enchanter or Chaldean. 11 The thing that the king asks is difficult, and no one can show it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.”
The astrologers answered the king, “Your majesty, nobody in the world can do this! Never has a king, no matter how great and powerful, asked such a thing of any magician or exorcist or astrologer. 11 The king is asking a difficult thing; nobody but the gods could tell this to your majesty, and they don’t live with mere mortals.”
MSGThe fortunetellers said, “Nobody anywhere can do what you ask. And no king, great or small, has ever demanded anything like this from any magician, enchanter, or fortuneteller. What you’re asking is impossible unless some god or goddess should reveal it—and they don’t hang around with people like us.”
