What Do You Choose?
Of these 8 different word meaning taken from the original text, which one/s accurately depict the English word CATTLE based upon the English language as we use it today? Which one/s would you use instead of CATTLE to convey what CATTLE means to you?
- mute, dumb
- bought that comes from be erect
- pushing that comes from rush
- deputyship that comes from dispatch
- eating that comes from kindle
- sculpture that comes from to sling
- beeve that comes from to plough
- to erect
All eight were translated as cattle; but also translated into which of these words?
- flock, herd
- curved figure
- teach to keep cattle
- provoke to
All 34 plus others were used in place of CATTLE. If I read sheep, lamb, flock, my mind would not go anywhere near the word CATTLE. Let alone any of the other words, like jealousy, without qualification of some kind.
If I read workman, I do not think of cattle in English terms. However I know that the word man is mortal and is not exclusive to humans. Which means one step closer to the original text meaning.
Which of those above words would cause you to think CATTLE? So unless we understand what any given word means in the original text, we wallow in a cesspool of confusion.
A word means what it means in any language and unless there is some other qualifying, explanatory reason alongside giving a broader definition, the meaning is not altered.
This is the confusion presented in the Bible translation. There are so many different words used to define something we cannot even associate the translated word with the original meaning and therefore dismiss, displace, refuse the Strong Bridge.
The bridge was properly built, structurally sound. It is our confused mind that needs setting straight.
The redemption is found in the vast portion of the Bible which is actually not translated. We can begin to build an understanding by using some basic words and their real meanings. Replacing what we have been commonly taught.
See tomorrow blog for examples of that. A simple task, but changing old habits takes intention, diligent application and endurance to attain. So this task may not be so easy. There is no magic wand, magic pill, secret hidden chamber, locked door, lost key, that is not resident within our very beings.
I hope this intrigues you into a journey with me, exploring what our human pen actually scribed. It belongs to us the ONE UNITED OXHEAD, the FIRSTBORN DIVINE CHILD/HUMANITY.
It has been misused for too long. Time to reclaim our property. Time to slay the fatted religious calf.
Let me know what you think. How did you score on the quizz?
There are many ways to redeem our writings; just like there are many different shapes, sizes and colors in a jigsaw puzzle. Just difficult to see how they fit when the box has been loaded down with unnecessary pieces.
