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

Faithfulness

“His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.”

-Matthew 25:21

Faithfulness means to be loyal without wavering. It’s vital in your walk with God to grow this fruit because the Lord is a jealous God. He expects to be number one and refuses to share you with any other ‘gods’. The relationship of Christ and the church is a representation of marriage. We know we shouldn’t cheat on our spouses, so why would we think it’s okay to cheat on God? One day we serve Him and the next we serve our selfishness. We have to make a decision and be determined that we will live for God and not for everyone else. Read more
