IMPORTANT: Easton's Bible Dictionary is NOT exegetical, and can be counter to the scriptural or Hebrew and Greek definitions of words.
150 Years ago you couldn't be a Pastor anywhere in the world unless you were fluent in Hebrew..... Even in the so-called "Dark Ages" everyone had a local Priest who could speak, read and write in at least 2 languages, who taught out of a Latin Bible. How far have we fallen in word definitions! DO YOU BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD OR BELIEVE IN THE OPPOSITE?
*******Recommended Materials for In-Depth Research of Scripture*********
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, Complete and Unabridged (Every pastor uses or recommends this for their congregation) It's the main tool every Christian should have in their library along with a good Lexicon to get full definitions. Beware, using just Strong's alone without a Lexicon will not give you full definitions of many words since it's not meant to do the function of a Lexicon.
You will need some of the following books to render in-depth research beyond the scope of Strong's Concordance: (Most of which are included in several computer programs such as PC Study Bible and online at HERE for FREE ACCESS)
1. The New Englishman's Greek Concordance and Lexicon of the New Testament, by Wigram-Green *These two books by Wigram-Green are what Strong's concordance is based upon. Every word in the bible is listed by (the original Greek and Hebrew)Strongs# rather than by English translation. You cannot miss the bible's definition of a word with this tool. You can see how the original word is used every time throughout the bible. This research tool makes any user blow away most any pastor these days.*
2. The New Englishman's Hebrew Concordance of the Old Testament, by Wigram-Green
3. Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament by Thayers
4. Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament by Gesenius
5. Interlinear Greek and English by Berry
7. Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words Keyed to Strong's Reference Numbers
You can also order the KJV "Hebrew Greek Key Study bible" which has built-in lexicons and Strong's numbering within the actual text of King James, or if you prefer you can also get it in New American Standard. (we reccomend King James Version)
We know you can always use the bible as it's own lexicon and use the word to interpret the word, however, but these are shortcuts for all who are wise to make quick use of. Thank You for using our online searchable Strong's concordance and dictionary.

The first keys are finding what the bible's definition of a word is in scripture, not in 21st Century word definitions or MAJORITY Religious Doctrines in the broad path which leadeth to destruction. These tools help you see how the original word is used through the entire text of scripture, thus render the BIBLE'S Definition of a word since we live by Every Word and not by bread alone.

Timon Honouring, one of the seven deacons at Jerusalem (Act 6:5). Nothing further is known of him.
Timotheus The Greek form of the name of Timothy (Act 16:1, etc.; the R.V. always "Timothy").
Timothy Honouring God, a young disciple who was Paul's companion in many of his journeying. His mother, Eunice, and his grandmother, Lois, are mentioned as eminent for their piety (Ti2 1:5). We know nothing of his father but that he was a Greek (Act 16:1). He is first brought into notice at the time of Paul's second visit to Lystra (Act 16:2), where he probably resided, and where it seems he was converted during Paul's first visit to that place (Ti1 1:2; Ti2 3:11). The apostle having formed a high opinion of his "own son in the faith," arranged that he should become his companion (Act 16:3), and took and circumcised him, so that he might conciliate the Jews. He was designated to the office of an evangelist (Ti1 4:14), and went with Paul in his journey through Phrygia, Galatia, and Mysia; also to Troas and Philippi and Berea (Act 17:14). Thence he followed Paul to Athens, and was sent by him with Silas on a mission to Thessalonica (Act 17:15; Th1 3:2). We next find him at Corinth (Th1 1:1; Th2 1:1) with Paul. He passes now out of sight for a few years, and is again noticed as with the apostle at Ephesus (Act 19:22), whence he is sent on a mission into Macedonia. He accompanied Paul afterwards into Asia (Act 20:4), where he was with him for some time. When the apostle was a prisoner at Rome, Timothy joined him (Phi 1:1), where it appears he also suffered imprisonment (Heb 13:23). During the apostle's second imprisonment he wrote to Timothy, asking him to rejoin him as soon as possible, and to bring with him certain things which he had left at Troas, his cloak and parchments (Ti2 4:13). According to tradition, after the apostle's death he settled in Ephesus as his sphere of labour, and there found a martyr's grave.
Timothy, First Epistle to Paul in this epistle speaks of himself as having left Ephesus for Macedonia (Ti1 1:3), and hence not Laodicea, as mentioned in the subscription; but probably Philippi, or some other city in that region, was the place where this epistle was written. During the interval between his first and second imprisonments he probably visited the scenes of his former labours in Greece and Asia, and then found his way into Macedonia, whence he wrote this letter to Timothy, whom he had left behind in Ephesus. It was probably written about A.D. 66 or 67. The epistle consists mainly, (1.) of counsels to Timothy regarding the worship and organization of the Church, and the responsibilities resting on its several members; and (2.) of exhortation to faithfulness in maintaining the truth amid surrounding errors.
Timothy, Second Epistle to Was probably written a year or so after the first, and from Rome, where Paul was for a second time a prisoner, and was sent to Timothy by the hands of Tychicus. In it he entreats Timothy to come to him before winter, and to bring Mark with him (compare Phi 2:22). He was anticipating that "the time of his departure was at hand" (Ti2 4:6), and he exhorts his "son Timothy" to all diligence and steadfastness, and to patience under persecution (Ti2 1:6), and to a faithful discharge of all the duties of his office (Ti2 4:1), with all the solemnity of one who was about to appear before the Judge of quick and dead.
Tin Heb. bedil (Num 31:22; Eze 22:18, Eze 22:20), a metal well known in ancient times. It is the general opinion that the Phoenicians of Tyre and Sidon obtained their supplies of tin from the British Isles. In Eze 27:12 it is said to have been brought from Tarshish, which was probably a commercial emporium supplied with commodities from other places. In Isa 1:25 the word so rendered is generally understood of lead, the alloy with which the silver had become mixed (Isa 1:22). The fire of the Babylonish Captivity would be the means of purging out the idolatrous alloy that had corrupted the people.
Tinkling Ornaments (Isa 3:18), anklets of silver or gold, etc., such as are still used by women in Syria and the East.
Tiphsah Passing over; ford, one of the boundaries of Solomon's dominions (Kg1 4:24), probably "Thapsacus, a great and wealthy town on the western bank of the Euphrates," about 100 miles north-east of Tadmor. All the land traffic between the east and the west passed through it. Menahem undertook an expedition against this city, and "smote Tiphsah and all that were therein" (Kg2 15:16). This expedition implied a march of some 300 miles from Tirzah if by way of Tadmor, and about 400 if by way of Aleppo; and its success showed the strength of the Israelite kingdom, for it was practically a defiance to Assyria. Conder, however, identifies this place with Khurbet Tafsah, some 6 miles west of Shechem.
Tiras Tiras, the youngest of the sons of Japheth (Gen 10:2; Ch1 1:5).
Tires "To tire" the head is to adorn it (Kg2 9:30). As a noun the word is derived from "tiara," and is the rendering of the Heb. p'er , a "turban" or an ornament for the head (Eze 24:17; R.V., "head tire;" Eze 24:23). In Isa 3:18 the word saharonim is rendered "round tires like the moon," and in Jdg 8:21, Jdg 8:26 "ornaments," but in both cases "crescents" in the Revised Version.
