Bible Dictionary: Gn.   1840

  1. GNASH, to grind the teeth together,
    as a passionate man, in rage or vexation,
    Psal. 112:10; Lam. 2:16.
  2. GNASHED, did gnash or grind the teeth
    in rage, Acts 7:54.
  3. GNASHING, grinding with the teeth in
    torment, Matt. 8:12.
  4. GNAT, a small winged insect, Matt.
    23:24.   Our Saviour's expression re-
    fers to the filtering of wine, lest the
    insect should be swallowed with the
    liquor, and so cause pain; and the pro-
    verb regards the superstitious and hypo-
    critical conduct of the Pharisees, who
    would avoid even the most trifling de-
    viations in ceremony, but would commit
    enormous violations of the moral law of
    God: hence the proverb, "Ye strain out
    a gnat, but swallow a camel."
  5. GNAW, to bite cruelly or devour, which
    the enemies of the church are repre-
    sented as doing in their oppressions,
    Zeph. 3:3.
  6. GNAWED, did gnaw, as the enemies of
    God are represented doing, in their an-
    guish under the Divine infliction of pun-
    ishment, Rev. 16:10.
  7. GO, to proceed or depart, as on a
    journey, Gen. 24:55; Exod. 3:19.   To
    "go to," is to enter upon any work, de-
    liberating and executing it with prompt-
    ness, Gen. 11:3, 4; Jam. 5:1.
  8. GOAD, a pike-staff to drive cattle, Judg.
    3:31; Eccles. 12:11.
  9. GOAT, a well-known animal pastured
    with sheep, Gen. 30:32-35; 1 Sam. 25:
    2.   Besides the species common in these
    western countries, there was a goat of Pa-
    lestine remarkable for the textile struc-
    ture of its hair, Deut. 32:14.   It was
    a clean animal, and fit for sacrifice, Gen.
    15:9; Exod. 12:5; Num. 7:17, 88;
    delicious as food, Gen. 27:9, affording
    abundance of milk, Prov. 27:26, 27:
    its shaggy hair was made into cloth, and
    some of it that was fine was wrought
    into beautiful hangings, Exod. 35:6,
    26, and shawls are still made of the fine
    hair, resembling silk, in some parts of
    the East.   Goat-skins were used for
    coarse garments, and flocks of these
    animals formed much of the eastern
    wealth, 2 Chron. 17:11.   Goat-worship
    was common among the Egyptians, Moab-
    ites, Greeks, and Romans, who chose
    this animal as an emblem of their deity
    Pan
    , "the god of shepherds," repre-
    sented as "half man and half goat."
    Hence the "satyrs[,]" Isa. 13:[21,] 22, or
    "hairy ones," translated devils, Lev.
    17:7.   See SATYR.
  10. GOB, [h] (a cistern), a city or place of
    the Philistines, 2 Sam. 21:18, 19.
  11. GOBLET, a small cup, Sol. Song 7:2.
  12. GOD, the common title given to the
    Almighty, self-existent Creator of all
    things in heaven and earth
    , Gen. 1:1;
    17:1.   Properly speaking, God can
    have no name
    , Exod. 3:6, 13, 15, though
    He has mercifully condescended to reveal
    Himself by many venerable, significant,
    and endearing titles, in the Scriptures.
    This word, God, is of Saxon origin, sig-
    nifying good: the German is Gott, the
    Latin, Deus, the French, Dieu, the Greek,
    Θεος, Theos, the Hebrew, יה, Jah
    , Psal.
    68:4.   God, in His nature, is a spirit,
    John 4:24; and He is infinite, eternal,
    and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom,
    power, holiness, justice, goodness, and
    truth, essentially worthy to be the Cre-
    ator, and Governor, and Judge of the
    universe; and to be loved, and worship-
    ped, and glorified, with all the powers
    of all His intelligent creatures
    , Rev. 4:
    8-11; 7:9-12.
    • God of Heaven--HL, p. 72.   Ezra.
  13. god: this word, in the Scriptures, is
    also variously applied to creatures.   An-
    gels are called "gods," as being the
    deputies of God in executing parts of
    His government of the world, Psal. 97:
    7; Heb. 1:6.   Judges also, on account of
    their office, Exod. 22:28; Psal. 82:
    1, 2.   Moses, as the special minister of
    Jehovah, was "a god to Pharaoh," Exod.
    7:1.   Satan is called "the god of this
    world,"
    as he is the deceiver and ruler
    of the ungodly
    , 2 Cor. 4:4.   Idols are
    called "gods," as they are adored by
    superstitious wicked persons, Deut 32:
    17; Judg. 2:12.   Sensualists, caring chiefly
    for the gratification of their animal [carnal] appe-
    tites, are said to make a "god of their
    belly,"
    Phil. 3:19.
  14. goddess, a pretended female divinity;
    of which class were many of the abomi-
    nations of the heathen, as Ashtoreth,
    Diana
    , &c., 1 Kings 11:5; Acts 19:27.
  15. GODHEAD, the essence or nature of
    God, Acts 17:29; Rom. 1:20; Col. 2:9.
    In the glorious mystery of the Godhead
    there are three Persons, the Father, the
    Son, and the Holy Spirit
    , Matt. 28:19;
    2 Cor. 13:14; 1 John 5:7.
  16. GODLINESS, God's dispensation of
    mercy to mankind by a Mediator, whose
    office exhibits the incarnation of Deity,
    1 Tim. 3:16: the essence of true
    reli-
    gion
    , 1 Tim. 2:2; 2 Pet. 1:3-6: practical
    piety, 1 Tim. 4:8; 2 Pet. 3:11.
  17. GODLY, resembling God, Psal. 4:3:
    leading to God, 2 Cor. 7:9, 10.
  18. GODLY, religiously, piously, 2 Tim. 3:
    12; Tit. 2:12.
  19. GODWARD, regarding God, or tending
    to God, Exod. 18:19; 2 Cor. 3:4;
    1 Thess. 1:8.
  20. GOG, [h] (roof or covering), a descendant
    of Reuben, 1 Chron. 5:4.   Gog and Ma-
    gog denote the northern nations of bar-
    barians, who, under the name of Scythians,
    Goths, &c., desolated parts of Europe
    and Asia, Ezek. 38. 39.; Rev. 20:
    8.   See
    MAGOG.
  21. GOING, proceeding, Josh. 10:11; Acts
    20:5.
  22. GOINGS, journeyings, Num. 33:2:
    proceedings, Prov. 5:21; 20:24: ways or
    roads, Num. 34:5.
  23. GO'LAN, [h] (passage or revolution), one
    of the cities of refuge, situated in Bashan,
    Deut. 4:43.
  24. GOLD, a well-known yellow metal: it
    is the purest, most ductile and shining,
    and consequently the most precious of
    all metals: it is found in most countries
    but especially in India, Western Africa,
    and South America.   Gold is astonish-
    ingly ductile, so that an ounce is said to
    have been drawn into a wire of 240 miles
    in length.   Immense quantities of gold
    were brought by the Israelites from
    Egypt, and acquired in Canaan, of which
    they made various articles of furniture
    for the tabernacle, Exod. 25:3, 11, &c.
    David and Solomon possessed prodigi-
    ous masses of gold, most of which was
    expended on the several parts of the
    temple of God at Jerusalem, 1 Chron.
    22:14-16; 29:4-7.   Gold is frequently
    referred to in the Scriptures, as an appro-
    priate emblem of what is precious and
    desirable, Prov. 16:16; 1 Pet. 1:7; Rev.
    3:18.
  25. GOLDEN, made of gold, Dan. 3:5:
    that which is rich or wealthy, Jer. 51:7.
  26. GOLDSMITH, a maker of golden vessels
    or ornaments, Isa. 40:19.   Goldsmiths
    were numerous in Israel, even in the
    times after the captivity, Neh. 3:8, 31.
  27. GOL'GOTHA, Γολγοθα (a heap of sculls),
    the Hebrew name of a part of the hill of
    Calvary, the place for the execution of
    criminals without the city of Jerusalem,
    and where the soldiers crucified our Lord
    ,
    John 19:17.
  28. GOLI'ATH, [h] (passage or discovery), a
    Philistine giant slain by David, 1 Sam.
    17:4, 23, 50.   Goliath was eleven feet
    four and a half inches in height, reckon-
    ing the cubit at twenty-one inches; and
    at eighteen inches, his height was nine
    feet nine inches: his armour is computed
    to have weighed about two hundred and
    thirteen pounds.
  29. GO'MER, [h] (to finish, or a consumer),
    the eldest son of
    Japheth, and progenitor
    of the nations of western Asia and Eu-
    rope, Gen. 10:2.
  30. GOMOR'RAH, [h] (a rebellious people),
    a city of ancient Canaan, whose inhabit-
    ants were addicted to most
    abominable
    practices; and they were therefore de-
    stroyed by fire from God with guilty
    Sodom.   Gen. 18:20; 19:4.   See
    SODOM.
  31. GOOD, fruitfulness, Gen. 45:18: what
    is conducive to happiness, Job 2:10:
    property, 1 Chron. 29:3.
  32. GOOD, right, virtuous, or conducing to
    happiness.   Creation, being the work of
    God, and everything which He had made
    being perfect in its kind, was good, very
    good, Gen. 1:4-31.   Truly religious men,
    possessing the grace of Christ, on whom
    they rely for salvation, being influenced
    by their holy principles in the practice
    of moral virtues, are good, Matt. 25:21;
    2 Tim. 3:3; Tit. 1:8.
  33. GOODLIER, taller or more elegant, as in
    person, 1 Sam. 9:2.
  34. GOODLIEST, tallest, most vigorous, 1
    Sam. 8:16.

    40:6.
  36. GOODLY, beautiful, fine, Exod. 2:2;
    Job 39:13.

    4: providential mercies, ver. 11: moral,
    qualities or Christian virtues, Rom. 15:
    14.   "The goodness of the LORD," de-
    sired by the saints of old, was the mani-
    festation of the promised Messiah
    , Psal.
    27:13.
  38. GOPHER-WOOD, a kind of cypress, or
    general name for the timber trees adapted
    to be used in constructing the ark of
    Noah, Gen. 6:14.   The cypress is more
    commonly believed to have been intended,
    especially as Alexander the Great built
    a fleet of ships with the timber of this
    tree growing about Babylon.
  39. GORE, to pierce with a horn, Exod.
    21:28-31.
  40. GORGEOUS, glittering, splendid, pomp-
    ous, as the bespangled robes of a king,

    ly, Ezek. 23:12; Luke 7:25.
  42. GO'SHEN, [h] (approaching or nearness),
    a frontier city of Egypt, Gen. 46:29.
  43. GOSHEN, THE LAND OF, a fertile dis-
    trict of Egypt, on the eastern bank of
    the Nile; and on account of its excellent
    pasturage, it was granted by Pharaoh
    for the residence of the Israelites, Gen.
    45:10; 47:6; Exod. 8:22.
  44. GOSHEN, a fertile district in Canaan,
    allotted to the tribe of Judah, Josh. 10:
    41; 11:16.
  45. GOSPEL, Εύαγγελιον (a good message or
    glad tidings)
    , Mark 1:1, 15; Luke 2:10.
    The gospel is the doctrine of Christianity,
    Rom. 1:16, the grand revelation of
    God's
    mercy to man, granting pardon and eter-
    nal
    life to guilty transgressors through
    Jesus Christ, with the sanctification of
    the heart by the grace of the Holy Spirit:
    hence it is called
    , among other significant
    titles, "the gospel of the grace of God[,]"
    Acts 20:24.   While the gospel consists
    of the most sublime doctrines, worthy of
    the Divine wisdom and goodness, it pre-
    scribes and secures the most refined
    morality in those who are true Chris-
    tian
    s, Tit. 2:11-14.
  46. GOSPEL, the title given to each of the
    four inspired histories of our
    Lord's
    ministry; as they exhibit the Redeemer
    in His glorious work of obedience, suffer-
    ing
    , and death, performing the conditions
    of the new covenant for our redemption
    and salvation
    , Isa. 53.; Dan. 9:24; Luke
    24:27.
  47. GOURD, a plant supposed to have been
    the Egyptian kiki, called by Niebuhr
    kheroa, and by others palma Christi, the
    Castor-oil plant of commerce.   It grows
    eight feet high, with very large palmate
    leaves, admirably suited to the miracu-
    lous
    use in shading the rebellious pro-
    phet
    Jonah, Jon. 4:6.
  48. GOURDS, WILD: these were gathered
    from the field vine, bearing poisonous
    berries, 2 Kings 4:39.
  49. GOZ'AN, [h] (fleece or pasture), a river
    and province of Media, whither the king
    of Assyria carried the Israelites, 2 Kings
    17:6; 19:12.
  50. GRACE, favour, Gen. 6:8; 19:19;
    34:4.   The grace of
    God is His mer-
    ciful
    favour to guilty men, which origin-
    ated his new covenant of redemption,
    and the gift of His Son to be our Re-
    deemer
    , with all the blessings of salva-
    tion
    by Jesus Christ
    , John 1:17; 3:16;
    Rom. 3:24-26.   The grace of our Lord
    Jesus Christ is His loving compassion to
    sinners, exhibited in His giving Himself
    for their redemption, and felt by be-
    lievers in its invigorating and consoling
    power upon their hearts
    , 2 Cor. 8:9;
    Eph. 5:2, 26, 27.   The grace of God
    commonly denotes the influences of the
    Holy Spirit on the souls of Christians,
    illuminating, sanctifying, comforting, and
    strengthening them in the ways of holi-
    ness, Luke 2:4; 1 Cor. 1:4; 3:10: it
    denotes all spiritual gifts, Eph. 4:7-12;
    spiritual blessings, John 1:16; 2 Tim. 1:
    9: the doctrine of free redemption by
    Christ
    , John 1:17; 2 Cor. 6:1; Gal. 5:4:
    holiness in conversation, Col. 4:6: acts
    of pious liberality, 2 Cor. 8:6, 7: and
    personal elegance of form and appear-
    ance, Prov. 4:9; Jam. 1:11.
    • Grace, unmerited favour.   Eph. 2:8-9.
  51. GRACIOUS, favourable, kind, Gen. 43:
    29: merciful, Exod. 33:19: virtuous,
    Prov. 11:16: instructive and consolatory,
    Luke 4:22.
  52. GRACIOUSLY, kindly, bountifully, Gen.
    33:5: mercifully, favourably, Hos.
    14:2.
  53. GRAFFED, inserted, as a young branch
    is into the stock of a tree for the pro-
    duction of good fruit: thus God grafted
    the Gentiles into Christ, when He brought
    them into His [family], by the ministry of
    the gospel, Rom. 11:17-24.
  54. GRAIN, a small particle, as the seed-
    corn, Amos 9:9; Matt. 13:31; 1 Cor.
    15:37.
  55. GRANDMOTHER, the mother of any
    one's father or mother, 2 Tim. 1:5.

    7:6.
  59. GRANTED, bestowed or imparted, Acts
    11:18.
  60. GRAPES, the valuable fruit of the vine,
    for which
    Canaan was distinguished,
    Num. 13:20-23; the clusters or bunches
    of which were sometimes more than
    twelve pounds in weight.
  61. GRASS, the herb which God created
    for the food of cattle, Gen. 1:11: the
    mortal glory of man, Isa. 40:6, 7; 1 Pet.
    1:24.
  62. GRASSHOPPER, a small destructive in-
    sect of the locust kind, Lev. 11:22; Isa.
    40:22; Amos 7:1.   Feeble age is repre-
    sented as unable to sustain the weight
    of a grasshopper, Eccles. 12:5.
  63. GRATE, a firepan with holes, Exod.
    27:3.

    119:7.
  75. GREAT, large in bulk, Gen. 29:2:
    famous or honourable among men, Exod.
    11:3.   Great is a word of very frequent

    lar latitude.

    cacy, Eph. 1:19.
  78. GREAVES, plates of metal, as for ar-
    mour, 1 Sam. 17:6.
  79. GRE'CIA, [h], Greece (he that deceives).
    The Hebrew word in Dan. 8:21; 10:20;
    11:2, is Javan, rendered Greece in Zech.
    9:13, and properly in Isa. 66:19, and
    Ezek. 27:13: but in each place the
    prophet intended Greece, Daniel espe-
    cially referring to its famous king,
    Alexander the Great.   See JAVAN and
    GREECE.
  80. GRE'CIANS, inhabitants of Greece, Joel
    3:6: those Jews who resided in the
    cities of Greece, or in other cities, using
    the Greek language, Acts 6:1; 11:20.
    See GREEKS.
  81. GREECE, Έλλας, a famous country on
    the south-east of Europe, including nu-
    merous small islands.   Daniel, referring
    to Alexander the Great, Dan. 8:21,
    included, as in its largest extent under
    that mighty conqueror, Macedonia in
    Greece; and with this, Thessaly, Epirus,
    Hellas, or Greece Proper, and the Morea:
    its boundaries, therefore, were the Scar-
    dian mountains on the north, the Levant
    on the south, on the west the Adriatic
    sea, and on the east Asia Minor.
  82. GREECE, in the New Testament, ac-
    cording to its divisions under the Ro-
    mans, who conquered it about the year
    B. C. 146, is restricted, not including
    Macedonia, Acts 20:2.   This country,
    though small in extent, is celebrated
    above every other of ancient times, for
    its statesmen, legislators, philosophers,
    and orators, and for their high cultiva-
    tion of literature, science, and the arts:
    its chief cities were Athens and Corinth,
    Acts 17; 18.   Greece originally was
    peopled by the sons of Javan, at an early
    period after the deluge, Gen. 10:2-5;
    and it became famous for a number of
    independent political states, especially
    for their union in prosecuting the Trojan
    war, about 900 years B.C.   Alexander,
    king of Macedon, reduced these states
    under his power about the year 330 B.C.;
    and, by his foreign conquests, established
    numerous colonies of Greeks in other
    countries, thus spreading their beautiful
    language.   Many of the Jews settled in
    the new cities of the Greeks, having equal
    civil privileges, and they soon made a
    translation of the Old Testament into
    their adopted language to read in their
    public worship, by which means Divine
    Providence prepared the way for the
    preaching of the gospel in Jewish syna-
    gogues far from Judea, and thus for the
    promulgation and advancement of Chris-
    tianity, Acts 19:10-17.
  83. GREEDILY, eagerly, Prov. 21:26;
    Jude 11.
  84. GREEDINESS, eagerness of pursuit, Eph.
    4:19.
  85. GREEDY, ravenous, Psal. 17:12:
    eager or covetous, Prov. 15:27; 1 Tim.
    3:3.
  86. GREEK, the language of Greece, John
    19:20; Acts 21:37: a native of Greece,
    Acts 16:1; Gal. 2:3.
  87. GREEKS, inhabitants of Greece, and
    using the Greek language, Acts 14:1, 2:
    Jews settled in the Grecian cities and
    speaking the Greek language, as at Alex-
    andria in Egypt, John 12:20.   Greeks
    became a common designation, employed
    by the Jews, for all the civilised Gentiles
    after the conquest of Judea and the whole
    East by Alexander, Acts 20:21; Rom. 1:
