Scripture Vocabulary Part II

A very long time ago I wrote a blog post of scripture vocabulary because sometimes when reading scriptures with our kids we have to give quick and simple definitions of words they are not used to hearing. I have always meant to do more of these posts, but since it is kind of a boring topic I have neglected it. However, today my dad is having knee surgery and I will be off to the hospital. Hopefully these are helpful to your family scripture study time.

Hew, hewed — Cut

By no means — In no way

Pardon — Forgive

Terrible — Awe-inspiring

Take heed to thyself — Be careful

Snare — Trap

Groves — Places where false gods are worshiped

Molten — Made of melted metal

Empty — Without paying a redemption price

Thrice — Three times

Tenor — Pattern

(Definitions taken from here.)

Scripture of the Day: Genesis 2:24


  1. Hmmm, "tenor" meaning "pattern" is a surprise to me! Thanks!

  2. Those were fun to read! Good luck to your dad. I hope all went well with his surgery.

  3. This is great. My kids are always asking "Mo-om, what does that mean?"


Comments are much appreciated!
