Bible Dictionary: Hn.   1840

  1. HO, a word of calling or invitation,
    Ruth 4:1; Isa. 55:1.
  2. HOAR, whitish, as frozen dew on the
    grass, Exod. 16:14; or grey hairs, Isa.
    46:4; Lev. 19:32.
  3. HOARY, whitish, as grey hairs, Lev.
    19:32; or as foam of agitated water,
    Job 41:32.
  4. HO'BAB, [h] (favoured and beloved), the
    father of the wife of Moses, Judg. 4:11:
    he is called also
    Jethro, Exod. 3:1;
    18:1-12.   Some, however, suppose that
    Hobab was the son of Jethro, Exod. 2:
    18; Num. 10:29.   He is believed to have
    yielded to the entreaty of Moses, and to
    have accompanied the Israelites to Ca-
    naan, Judg. 4:11.
  5. HO'HAM, [h] (woe to them), a king of
    Hebron, one of the four kings who united
    with Adonizedek in besieging Gibeon,
    Josh. 10:1, 3, 23.
  6. HOISED, drawn up, as the sail of a
    ship, Acts 27:40.
  7. HOLD, a castle or fortification, Judg.
    9:46-49.
  8. HOLD, to keep fast, 2 Sam. 6:6: to
    commemorate, as by a feast, Exod. 5:1:
    to regard or account for praise or blame,
    to maintain, as a custom or an opinion,
    Mark 7:4-8.
  9. HOLDEN, held or bound, Job 36:8;
    Acts 2:24: sustained, Rom. 14:4.
  10. HOLDING, maintaining, Mark 7:3:
    exhibiting exemplary obedience, Phil. 2:
    16: restraining, Rev. 7:1.
  11. HOLE, a hollow place or cave, Isa. 11:
    8; Matt. 8:20: a rent, as in a bag,
    Hag. 1:6: a passage bored, as in the lid
    of a chest, 2 Kings 12:9.
  12. HOLIER, more holy or pure, Isa. 45:5.
  13. HOLIEST, most holy or sacred, Heb.
    9:3, 8.
  14. HOLILY, piously, with sanctity, 1 Thess.
    2:10.
  15. HOLINESS, sanctity, moral purity, and
    excellency: hence
    God, who is infinite
    in righteousness, purity, goodness, and
    moral excellency, is celebrated as
    "glo-
    rious in holiness,"
    Exod. 15:[11].   Holi-
    ness is that perfection in the nature of
    God that renders Him supremely worthy
    of the veneration, confidence, and love

    of all His intelligent creatures, Psal. 60:
    6; Rev. 4:8; 6:10.   Holiness in godly
    persons, is that spirit of moral purity
    and sanctity, by which they are consti-
    tuted partakers of the Divine nature,
    2 Pet. 1:4; and this is derived to them
    from God, by means of the doctrines and
    promises of his gospel
    , under the disci-
    pline of his providence, and sanctified by
    the gracious influences of his Holy Spirit,
    2 Cor. 3:3; Gal. 5:22; 1 Pet. 1:22; Heb.
    12:10-14.   Holiness in places and things
    consists in their separation from common
    use for sacred purposes, especially in the
    ordinances of religious worship, Isa. 62:
    9; Zech. 14:20, 21.
    • Holiness.   See Revival, Holiness,
      and the Man of God.
  16. HOLLOW, the cavity, as of a bone, Gen.
    32:25; or of the hand, Isa. 40:12.
  17. HOLLOW, not solid, having a cavity,
    Exod. 27:8.
  18. HOLPEN, helped or assisted, Dan. 11:
    34.
  19. HOLY, sacred, pure, morally good:
    God is infinitely holy
    , as celebrated by
    the seraphim, Isa. 6:3; Rev. 4:8.
    Angels of God are holy, as they were
    created perfect, and having never sinned,
    they surround the throne of their Creator,
    Matt. 25:31.   Godly men are holy,
    having been renewed and sanctified by
    the Holy Spirit, Rom. 8:9-16; 1 Cor.
    3:16, 17: hence the term saints, the
    proper meaning of which is holy persons.
    The Israelites were called a "holy
    people,"
    Deut. 7:6; and a "holy na-
    tion,"
    Exod. 19:6, as they were sepa-
    rated from the heathen, and called to
    holiness in the service of God.   Christians
    are called a "holy nation," on account
    of their personal holiness, 1 Pet. 2:5-9.
  20. HOLYDAYS were the sabbaths, and the
    sacred festivals of the Israelites, Exod.
    35:2; Psal. 42:4.
  21. HOLY PLACE: this was that part of
    the tabernacle and of the temple in
    which the ark of the covenant was set
    up, separated from the other part by the
    vail or curtain, and into which the high-
    priest alone entered once a year, on the
    great day of atonement, Exod. 26:33;
    Heb. 9:25.
  22. HOLY GHOST, the third Person of the
    adorable
    Trinity, Matt. 28:19.   See
    GHOST and SPIRIT.
  23. HOLY SPIRIT, the Spirit of God, Psal.
    51:11: the third Person of the adorable
    Trinity
    , Luke 11:13.   See SPIRIT.
  24. HOME, a dwelling-place, the residence
    of the family, Gen. 43:16; Deut. 21:
    12; Tit. 2:5.   See
    Home.
  25. HOMER or COR, the largest of the
    Hebrew measures, containing about se-
    venty-five gallons, Ezek. 45:11-14; Lev.
    [27]:16; Num. 11:32.   See
    MEASURES.
  26. HONEST, upright, just, sincere, Luke
    8:15; 2 Cor. 8:21.
  27. HONESTLY, uprightly, justly, chastely,
    Rom. 13:13.
  28. HONESTY, justice, truth, fidelity, vir-
    tue, 1 Tim. 2:2.
  29. HONEY, a luscious substance prepared
    by bees, Judg. 14:8.  
    Canaan, on account
    of its fertility, is called a "land flowing
    with milk and honey,"
    Exod. 3:8-17.
    Bees were exceedingly numerous in
    Palestine; and the swarms settling on
    the rocks and in the hollow trunks of
    trees, occasioned it to be said that the
    Israelites should "suck honey out of the
    rock,"
    Deut. 32:13.   Hence John fed
    on locusts and wild honey, Matt. 3:4.
    Honey being the sweetest and most deli-
    cious thing known to the ancients, before
    the art of preparing sugar was known,
    things that are desirable, pleasant, and
    delightful, are compared to honey, Prov.
    24:13; as divine doctrine, Psal. 119:
    103.
  30. HONOUR, dignity, reputation; as God
    promised to Israel, Deut. 26:19; as
    David attained by his prosperous reign,
    1 Chron. 29:28; as true religion brings
    to every pious man before God, Prov. 3:
    16; as God the Father gave to Christ
    by a voice from heaven
    , 2 Pet. 1:17; as
    the whole inhabitants of heaven ascribe
    to God, Rev. 4:11; and to the exalted
    Redeemer, 5:12, 13.
  31. HONOUR, to reverence, to regard with
    [respect]; as children should their
    parents, Exod. 20:12; as the people
    should the king, 1 Pet. 2:17; as pious
    men worship and glorify God, Dan. 4:
    37; 1 Tim. 1:17.
  32. HONOURABLE, elevated to dignity; as
    princes, by rank, Num. 22:15; by
    office, as captains, 2 Kings 5:1; by
    wealth, as merchants, Isa. 23:8: that
    which is according to the will of God, as
    lawful marriage, Heb. 13:4.
  33. HONOURED, did honour or worship,
    as Nebuchadnezzar, after his return to
    reason, worshipped God, Dan. 4:34.
  34. HONOURED, reverenced, as God would
    be by impious Pharaoh in his punish-
    ment, Exod. 14:4: distinguished with
    favours, as Paul and his friends were by
    the Maltese, after his apostolic mission
    had been manifestly illustrated by his
    healing the sick, Acts 28:10.
  35. HOOD, a kind of bonnet, turban, or
    head-dress, Isa. 3:23.
  36. HOOF, the horny substance on the feet
    of animals, Lev. 11:3-7; Isa. 5:28.
  37. HOOK, anything bent, so as to catch:
    those hooks used in the tabernacle to
    hold the curtains and vail were made,
    some of gold and some of silver, Exod.
    26.; 27.   "Pruning-hooks beaten into
    spears,"
    indicate war, Joel 3:10.   "Spears
    into pruning-hooks"
    denote general peace,
    Isa. 2:4.
  38. HOPE, expectation of future good,
    Prov. 14:32.   This affection of the
    mind is essential to our nature, though
    in this world of sin and calamity dis-
    appointments are innumerable.   In rela-
    tion to a future life, ungodly men are
    without hope
    , Eph. 2:12: or theirs is
    the hope of the hypocrite, which will
    perish, Job 8:13; Matt. 7:21-23.
    Christian hope is a holy principle of
    grace created or excited in the hearts of
    believers by the Holy Spirit, Rom. 15:
    13: the object of this hope is immor-
    tality and eternal life, Tit. 2:13; the
    warrant of it is the promise of God in
    the gospel, 1:2; the influence of it is the
    purification of the heart and life in holi-
    ness, 1 John 3:3; the support of it is
    the love of God shed abroad in the heart
    by the Holy Spirit, Rom. 5:5.
  39. HOPE OF ISRAEL: the grand hope of
    Israel, and of all the pious, from age to
    age until the advent of Christ, was His
    appearance as the promised Saviour,
    through whom they expected the bless-
    ings of pardon and life eternal
    , Gen. 49:
    10; Psal. 72.; Job 19:25; Acts 28:
    20; John 4:25.
  40. HOPE, to expect future good, Job 6:
    11.   Every human being on earth natu-
    rally cherishes hope of some future relief
    or benefit: but they who die in their
    sins sink into despair; they cannot hope
    for the mercy of God
    , Isa. 38:18.
    Those who fear God, and
    believe His
    gospel, are inspired with confidence, that
    the present trials will be beneficial, and
    that they shall inherit immortality in
    eternal life
    , Lam. 3:24; Rom. 8:28-39.
  41. HOPED, did hope or expect, Est. 9:1;
    Acts 24:26.
  42. HOPED, expected, Jer. 3:23: trusted,
    Psal. 119:74.
  43. HOPING, expecting, Luke 6:35.
  44. HOPH'NI, [h] (he that covers, or my fist),
    a priest of Israel, a vile son of pious Eli,
    1 Sam. 1:3; 2:12; 3:13; 4:4-11.
  45. HOPHRA, (Pharaoh-hophra), the name
    of one of the kings of Egypt, who formed
    an alliance with Zedekiah, king of Judah,
    but vainly attempted to assist him against
    Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, Jer.
    44:30; Ezek. 29:2-19.
  46. HOR, [h] (who conceives), a lofty moun-
    tain in the range of Seir in Idumea,
    Arabia Petrea, famous by the death and
    burial of
    Aaron, Num. 20:22-28.
  47. HOR, a summit on the eastern range
    of the mountains of Lebanon, Num.
    34:7, 8.
  48. HO'RAM, [h] (who conceives them), a king
    of Gezer, who was overcome by Joshua,
    Josh. 10:33.
  49. HO'REB, [h] (desert, solitude, or the
    sword
    ), the western peak or summit of
    mount Sinai, called the "mountain of
    God,"
    Exod. 3:2, 12; 18:5.   Horeb is
    famous for the manifestation of God to
    Moses, Exod. 3:1, 6, 13; for the en-
    campment of the Israelites, when they
    received the law from Sinai, 28:6;
    Deut. 1:6; 4:10-15; and for its being
    the retreat of Elijah when threatened
    by Jezebel, 1 Kings 19:8.
  50. HOR'MAH, [h] (destruction or devoted
    to God
    ), a district and city, first called
    Zephath, Num. 21:3; Judg. 1:17.
  51. HORN, the defensive weapon of an ox,
    Exod. 21:29; and of some other ani-
    mals, as unicorns, Deut. 33:17, and
    goats, Dan. 8:5: a flask for oil, 1 Sam.
    16:1, 16; as such a vessel was some-
    times formed of the horn of an ox.
    Horns, as indicating the strength of a
    beast, are variously referred to in the
    Scriptures: and the word is employed
    to denote the triumph of an individual,
    1 Sam. 2:1, and the power of kings,
    Dan. 7:7, 20, 24; 8:3, 6, 20; Rev.
    12:3; 13:1.   Head ornaments were
    sometimes fitted with horns, as repre-
    sented in our engraving.
  52. HORNET, a large and strong species
    of stinging insects, conjectured by Bruce
    to be the zimb of Abyssinia, Deut. 7:20:
    swarms were sent as a judgment from
    God upon the wicked Canaanites, Exod.
    23:28; Josh. 24:12.
  53. HORRIBLE, dreadful, shocking, Jer.
    23:14; Psal. 11:6.
  54. HORRIBLY, dreadfully, Jer. 2:11, 12.
  55. HORROR, terror, Gen. 15:12.
  56. HORSE, a well-known noble and useful
    animal, Job 39:18-25.   Moses forbade
    the people to keep many horses, Deut.
    17:16; yet Solomon, in his pomp, pro-
    cured forty thousand horses for his cha-
    riots, 1 Kings 4:26; 10:29.   Various
    dispensations of Divine Providence are
    represented under the emblems of red,
    white, pale, and black horses, Rev. 6:2-
    8; 19:14; Zech. 6:2-6.
  57. HORSEBACK, the state of riding on a
    horse, Gen. 50:9.
  58. HORSELEECH, a species of large black-
    ish worm living in the water, remarkable
    for its fastening upon the flesh, and not
    quitting it till entirely full of blood,
    Prov. 30:15.
  59. HORSEMAN, a warrior or messenger
    riding on horseback, 2 Kings 9:17; Nah.
    3:3.   Vast numbers of horsemen were
    employed in some of the armies of the
    Philistines, 1 Sam. 13:5; Syrians, 2 Sam.
    10:18, and Egyptians, 2 Chron. 12:3.
    Elisha regarded the great prophet Elijah,
    his patron, and the friend of his country,
    as "the chariot of Israel and the horse-
    men thereof,"
    2 Kings 2:12: so king
    Joash regarded the [respect]able prophet
    Elisha, 13:14.
  60. HOSAN'NA, Ώσαννα (save, I beseech thee),
    a Jewish exclamation, often used in the
    prayers of the Jews: it was shouted by
    multitudes in a procession, when our
    Saviour entered Jerusalem at His last
    passover, they hoping that He was the
    promised Messiah
    , Matt. 21:9-15.
  61. HOSE'A, [h] (saviour or salvation), a
    prophet of Israel at the time that
    Isaiah
    flourished in Judah: he exercised his
    ministry about sixty years, Hos. 1:1.
  62. HOSEA, BOOK OF: the first in order of
    the twelve minor prophets: it represents
    the folly and wickedness of idolatry:
    denounces the Divine judgments on
    idolaters, and earnestly invites sinners,
    with promises of mercy and grace, to
    return in obedience to God.   See
    Commentary.
  63. HOSEN, coverings for the legs, Dan.
    3:21.
  64. HOSHE'A, the same as Hosea and Joshua,
    Deut. 32:44.
  65. HOSHEA, a usurper on the throne of
    Israel, and the last of its kings; his
    royal master, whom he murdered and
    succeeded, was also a usurper, king
    Pekah, 2 Kings 15:25-30; 17:4.
  66. HOSHEA, a pious chief of Judah in the
    days of Nehemiah, Neh. 10:23.
  67. HOSPITALITY, kindness to strangers,
    especially in giving them entertainment,
    Rom. 12:13.   Abraham, Gen. 18:2, 3,
    and Lot, 19:1, 2, are commended as
    examples of hospitality to Christians,
    Heb. 13:2.
  68. HOST, one who entertains guests, Rom.
    16:23: an innkeeper, Luke 10:35.
  69. HOST, a great number in orderly array,
    as the heavenly luminaries, Gen. 2:1;
    as the angels of God, Luke 2:13; as an
    army, Exod. 14:4, 24.
  70. HOSTAGES, persons given as securities
    to conquerors; as kings sometimes gave
    their sons, or the sons of the nobles, as
    pledges of their fidelity and of engage-
    ments to pay the imposed taxes, 2 Kings
    14:14.
  71. HOSTS, multitudes in array, as the
    Israelites, Exod. 12:41; and the angels
    of God, Psal. 103:21.   Hence that title
    of the blessed God, LORD OF HOSTS.
  72. HOT, heated, as by the sun, Exod. 16:
    21; or by fire, Dan. 3:22; or by anger,
    Judg. 6:39; or with zeal, Rev. 3:15.
  73. HOTLY, with heat or passion, Gen.
    31:36.
  74. HOTTEST, most violent or dangerous,
    2 Sam. 11:15.
  75. HOUGH (pronounced hok), to lame by
    cutting the chief tendon on the back of
    the leg, as of a horse, Josh. 11:6-9.
  76. HOUGHED, did hough or lame, Josh.
    11:9; 2 Sam. 8:4.
  77. HOUR, the twenty-fourth part of the
    day from noon to noon.   Daniel is the
    first that mentions the hour, Dan. 4:19,
    33; which he is thought to have learnt
    of the Chaldeans, and this mode of com-
    puting time was adopted by the Greeks
    and Romans, who reckoned twelve hours
    in the day from morn to even, Matt. 20:
    3, 5, 6, 12; John 11:9; and the same in
    the night, Acts 23:23: hence the third
    hour was nine o'clock, the sixth noon
    or midnight, and the ninth was three
    o'clock, Acts 27:45.   See TIME.   Hour
    denotes a certain period, Luke 10:21:
    season of acting, 22:53, or of trial,
    Rev. 3:10.
  78. HOUSE, a family, Gen. 7:1; 12:1-17;
    Exod. 12:23; as house of Israel, house
    of David, 2 Sam. 3:1: kindred, 2 Sam.
    7:18: lineal posterity, Luke 1:27: the
    professed worshippers of God, Heb. 3:
    2: the property belonging to a family,
    Matt. 23:14.
  79. HOUSE, the habitation of a family,
    Gen. 19:2, 3: the mortal body, the
    habitation of the soul, 2 Cor. 5:1: the
    grave, Job 30:23: the heavenly dwell-
    ing-place, 2 Cor. 5:1, 2: a place of wor-
    ship, as the tabernacle, Psal. 5:7: the
    temple of Solomon, 1 Kings 6:12, 8:
    27.   Houses of the poor were miserable
    dwellings, either tents or slightly built,
    generally with rough stone or mud walls.
    Those of the wealthy citizens or nobles
    were spacious, and fitted up with great
    elegance and expense, Jer. 22:14; Amos
    3:16.   Large houses usually had few
    windows on the outside: they opened
    into a court within, Luke 5:19, paved
    with flag-stones or marble, having a well
    or fountain of water, 2 Sam. 17:18.
    In this court large companies might
    assemble, when it was covered with a
    kind of awning: a part of this, it appears,
    was uncovered to let down the paralytic
    man in the midst of the crowd before
    Jesus, Mark 2:4.   The rooms on the
    ground-floor were used as stores for pro-
    visions, oil, lodgings of servants, and the
    upper story or chambers were furnished,
    14:15: those on the farthest side were
    alloted to the females of the family, and
    called "palaces," 1 Kings 16:18.   Ori-
    ental dwelling-houses were constructed
    very differently from those of our country;
    and a correct idea of them may best be
    formed from our engravings, which re-
    present the more elegant houses of modern
    Egypt.
  80. HOUSEHOLD, a large family dwelling
    together, Gen. 18:19; Phil. 4:22.
  81. HOUSEHOLDER, the head of a family
    with servants, Matt. 13:37.
  82. HOUSETOPS, terraces on the roofs of
    eastern houses, so that persons might
    walk, or even place their beds on them
    for sleeping, Luke 5:19; 12:3; 17:31.
  83. HOW, in what manner or degree, a
    word of inquiry or admiration, Exod. 10:
    37; Matt. 23:37.
  84. HOWBEIT, nevertheless, Judg. 4:17;
    16:13.
  85. HOWL, a cry of deep distress, Joel 1:
    5, 11, 13.
  86. HOWLED, did howl or cry in distress,
    Hos. 7:14.
  87. HOWLING, crying in distress, Isa. 15:
    8; Zech. 11:5.

    from howling beasts of prey and robbers,
    Deut. 32:10.
  89. HUGE, very great, 2 Chron. 16:8.
  90. HUL, [h] (pain or expectation), a son of
    Aram, and great-grandson of Noah, Gen.
    10:23.
  91. HUL'DAH, [h] (the world), a prophetess
    of great fame for her sanctity in Judah,
    when the nation was sunk in idolatry:
    she was consulted to know the will of
    God in a solemn crisis by the high-priest
    Hilkiah, in the time of king Josiah, 2
    Kings 22:14; 2 Chron. 34:22-28.
  92. HUMBLE, modest, lowly in mind, espe-
