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.
You can get all these books at ANY Bible bookstore and most major bookstores. Or order from us right now click here
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.
Easton's (UnBiblical and sometimes FALSE) Bible Dictionary
Zin A low palm-tree, the south-eastern corner of the desert et-Tih, the wilderness of Paran, between the Gulf of Akabah and the head of the Wady Guraiyeh (Num 13:21). To be distinguished from the wilderness of Sin (q.v.).
Zina Ornament, one of the sons of Shimei (Ch1 23:10).
Zion Sunny; height, one of the eminences on which Jerusalem was built. It was surrounded on all sides, except the north, by deep valleys, that of the Tyropoeon (q.v.) separating it from Moriah (q.v.), which it surpasses in height by 105 feet. It was the south-eastern hill of Jerusalem. When David took it from the Jebusites (Jos 15:63; Sa2 5:7) he built on it a citadel and a palace, and it became "the city of David" (Kg1 8:1; Kg2 19:21, Kg2 19:31; Ch1 11:5). In the later books of the Old Testament this name was sometimes used (Psa 87:2; Psa 149:2; Isa 33:14; Joe 2:1) to denote Jerusalem in general, and sometimes God's chosen Israel (Psa 51:18; Psa 87:5). In the New Testament (see SION) it is used sometimes to denote the Church of God (Heb 12:22), and sometimes the heavenly city (Rev 14:1).
Zior Littleness, a city in the mountains of Judah (Jos 15:54); the modern Si'air , 4 1/2 miles north-north-east of Hebron.
Ziph Flowing. (1.) A son of Jehaleleel (Ch1 4:16). (2.) A city in the south of Judah (Jos 15:24), probably at the pass of Sufah. (3.) A city in the mountains of Judah (Jos 15:55), identified with the uninhabited ruins of Tell ez-Zif, about 5 miles south-east of Hebron. Here David hid himself during his wanderings (Sa1 23:19; Psa 54:1, title).
Ziphah A descendant of Judah (Ch1 4:16).
Ziphron Sweet odour, a city on the northern border of Palestine (Num 34:9), south-east of Hamath.
Zippor A little bird, the father of Balak, king of Moab (Num 22:2, Num 22:4).
Zipporah A female bird. Reuel's daughter, who became the wife of Moses (Exo 2:21). In consequence of the event recorded in Exo 4:24, she and her two sons, Gershom and Eliezer, when so far on the way with Moses toward Egypt, were sent back by him to her own kinsfolk, the Midianites, with whom they sojourned till Moses afterwards joined them (Exo 18:2).
Zithri The Lord protects, a Levite, son of Uzziel (Exo 6:22).
