What Does The Word ‘Righteous’ Mean In Hebrew?

tsadaq- to be in the right, be justified, be just, be righteous. This term can be used to describe someone who has received deliverance from condemnation. For example, tsadaq is used 17 times in the book of Job. Another version of this word is a legal term that involves the entire process of judgement. However, it brings a sense of judicial pronunciation of innocence.

You shall not pervert the judgment of your poor in his dispute. Keep yourself far from a false matter; do not kill the innocent and righteous. For I will not justify the wicked.

-Exodus 23:6-7

tsedeq- There’s two forms of this word: feminine (tsedaqah) and tsedeq. Much research has been done regarding these two words and this is the conclusion: one’s relational and the other’s legal. If a man has a faithful relationship with God, it can be described using tsedeq. However, tsedaqah is also used in a relational way in Genesis 30:33. Read more

What comes to mind when you think of the word ‘deliver’? Because of the world we live in today, my mind instantly thinks of pizza. (Yum!) But in the biblical sense, it’s not related to food at all. In fact, the Bible calls the Lord our Deliverer. I can speak from experience, God certainly delivered me from a horrible past. I’ve been delivered from sex addiction, alcohol addiction, a smoking addiction, depression and so much more. (You can read my full testimony here!)

What Does The Word ‘Deliver’ Mean In Hebrew?

yasha- save; saviour; deliver; help; salvation; preserved.

For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel:

“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
But you would not.

In modern society, the word redeem isn’t very common. Although many people are in debt, they don’t use the word redeem when talking about paying off debt. It seems to be a bit old and out of style. However, it’s a very important word when talking about God. He is truly our Redeemer and has paid an incredible price for us to have a wonderful relationship with Him. Therefore, it’s necessary to take a look at what the definition of this word redeem means in the original Bible languages.

What Does The Word ‘Redeem’ Mean In Hebrew?

ga’al- to deliver, redeem, act as a kinsman, avenge. The basic use of this word had to do with the deliverance of people or things that have been sold for debt. For example, in Leviticus 25:25-26 ga’la is used in such way: . If a poor man sold himself to another Israelite (or even a foreigner among them), then the nearest relative to that man had the responsibility to redeem him (buy him back). The person who redeemed their family member is known as a kinsman. Also, following the ‘eye for an eye’ theory, a redeemer was called the “avenger of blood” when taking on the responsibility of executing his brother’s murderer (found in Deuteronomy 19:6). Read more

What Does The Word ‘Faithful’ Mean In Hebrew?

emuwn- trustworthiness; faithful.

emuwnah- honesty; truth; faithfulness; firmness; official obligation. The first time this word is used in the text is found in Exodus 17:12: “But Moses’ hands became heavy; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it. And Aaron and Hur supported his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.” It can be translated into “to remain in one place.” However, the most common use of this word is to mean “faithfulness”.

“May the Lord repay every man for his righteousness and his faithfulness; for the Lord delivered you into my hand today, but I would not stretch out my hand against the Lord’s anointed.”

-1 Samuel 26:23

There are times when this word means “truthfulness” when contrasted to false swearing or lying. The underlying meaning of emunah is certain, established, lasting, or continuing. Read more

There are many Christians who pray everyday. There are others who think it’s a really spiritual thing and can only do it in certain positions. However, to pray to God simply means to share communication with Him. We can ask Him for things or simply tell Him how we’re feeling. The Lord loves to talk with His people and will give wisdom to all who ask. Let’s explore the Hebrew and Greek definitions of the word pray.

What Does The Word ‘Pray’ Mean In Hebrew?

athar- to burn incense in worship; intercede; pray.

palal- to pray, mediate, intervene, judge. Palal means to come between two parties, always being human beings. For example, palal is used 1 Samuel 2:25: “If one man sins against another, God will judge him. But if a man sins against the Lord, who will intercede for him?” However, this word is also used to describe the prophets while praying on behalf of the Israelites.

“Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against the Lord and against you; pray to the Lord that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moses prayed for the people.”

-Numbers 21:7. Read more

As a Christian, I’ve heard the word ‘glory’ hundreds of times. “Glory be to God” or “God is glorious”. Although I knew glory was something magnificent, I can honestly say I had no idea what it’s true definition was. Therefore, by doing incredible research I was able to discover exactly what the word glory actually means. Are you ready to find out too?

addereth- large, splendid, ample.

hadar- splendor, glory, majesty, honor, beauty, excellence. This word is related to the Hebrew words for ‘glory’ and ‘dignity’. However, hadar doesn’t mean overwhelming beauty. It means a combination of of social position and physical attractiveness.

And as a root out of dry ground.
He has no form or comeliness;

In today’s world, hope means something that may or may not happen. We sure hope today would be a good day. Or we hope our spouse washed the dishes before we arrive home. However, the word ‘hope’ in the Bible means something totally different. It calls God ‘the God of hope’. Certainly, the Lord isn’t an undecided being. Instead, He’s extremely trustworthy and can be relied on. When we place our hope in God, we shouldn’t feel unsure of His actions and intentions. Let’s see exactly what the Bible means when it mentions the word ‘hope’.

Meaning Of The Word ‘Hope’ In Hebrew

chacah- to flee for protection; to trust; confide in; to have hope; to make a refuge. This term is used when God is compared to a shield, a rock, or described as one with protective wings.

He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;

-Psalm 62:2

God is our refuge and strength. Read more

How The Daniel Plan Changed My Life

The Daniel plan changed my life.

Before I began eating healthy, I truly did not know anything about food and nutrition. I ate whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. However, one day I was at a new store opening up near my town and I saw a book called, “The Daniel Plan”. I was already interested in learning about psychology and how the body works. Therefore, I decided to buy this book and give it a read.

In the car, I opened it up and began reading. The book instantly sucked me in. The Daniel Plan starts off by Pastor Warren explaining that he was an overweight pastor who neglected his health. Once he realized how much he was destroying his body, he decided to make a change. Although he didn’t expect much support from his congregation, the majority of his church members joined him and dozens were changed.

He teamed up with Dr. Hyman and Dr. Amen to write this book. I absolutely trust their input and sincerity. This book was so amazing and my life will never be the same again after reading it. Here are some key things I learned in this awesome book. Read more

What does worship mean to you? I love to express to God my feelings toward Him and simply remember all that He’s brought me through. I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for Him. However, everyone expresses their love for God in different ways. Since Hebrew and Greek words give  a deeper meaning to English words, I thought it would be a great idea to research the word ‘worship’ in these different languages.

The Word ‘Worship’ In Hebrew

There are three different words used for worship in the Old Testament. I’m going to go over each one with you.

cagad- to prostrate oneself. The word prostrate has these following definitions found in the 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary:

1. Lying at length, or with the body extended on the ground or other surface.

2. Lying at mercy, as a supplicant.

3. Lying in the posture of humility of adoration.Read more
