  5. Cancer was my thinking as well. Ok que jeopardy music. It’s something in a similar slant that eats away ......rot ? Blessings Bill
  6. I think that our understanding of the word offended may have changed over time . It’s been a few hundred years. I found a dictionary for the early Modern English used in the KJV .I copied two definitions that seem to help make sense of the word usage for the KJV . 6. To disturb, annoy, or cause to fall or stumble. Great peace have they that love thy law, and nothing shall offend them. Ps. 119. 7. To draw to evil, or hinder in obedience; to cause to sin or neglect duty. If thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out - if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off. Matt. 5. Still the ESV and NASV handle it slightly different. To me it looks like it’s one of those words that don’t 100% translate into today’s English . Here it’s the Greek σκανδαλίζω skandalizō Thayer Definition: 1) to put a stumbling block or impediment in the way, upon which another may trip and fall, metaphorically to offend 1a) to entice to sin 1b) to cause a person to begin to distrust and desert one whom he ought to trust and obey 1b1) to cause to fall away 1b2) to be offended in one, i.e. to see in another what I disapprove of and what hinders me from acknowledging his authority 1b3) to cause one to judge unfavourably or unjustly of another 1c) since one who stumbles or whose foot gets entangled feels annoyed 1c1) to cause one displeasure at a thing 1c2) to make indignant 1c3) to be displeased, indignant Part of Speech: verb Here is something cool I noticed. The Greek word used is σκανδαλίζω skandalizō looks like this is where we get the word scandalize from. ya learn something new everyday. This is a cool thread Origen. Thanks for starting it . Blessings Bill
  7. Yea I get you . I Know the parable and am familiar with it in the NASV and ESV so I thought I would answer but your post got me curious. So I had to look up the Greek now I wonder about the words used to translate in all three lol. Blessings Bill
  8. Or perhaps play some cards lol . The verse is like repeating it self in different ways ( like many do ) looking back at snare then net then gin . I think trap . Blessings Bill
  9. Wax is like to grow like a waxing moon . It’s growing to till it’s full . so to grow cold I believe that’s it . Its funny that growing is used to describe a loss of intensity. Blessings Bill
  10. That’s a good one . It can refer to appearance sometimes , or here it gives a sense one’s or the worlds behavior or ways . Like , It was his fashion to wake up early . Early Modern English can be tricky unless you did things similar to Shakespeare in the park type stuff when you were in your twenties lol . Still you get thrown at times . The above in my opinion . Blessings Bill
  11. To be happy or satisfied with or willing just by looking at its context. Blessings Bill
