A Primer on Dreams and Visions

“This was an incomplete teaching which I wrote about 10 years ago. It really is a hodgepodge of Hebrew and Greek words and verses. Glean what you can from it, as is always the case with the Word of God.  Thank you. Jose”

The Seer and the Prophet

The Seer as the “one who sees” in the Hebrew and the “glancing one” in the Greek Septuagint.)

The Septuagint (70 books) is the Greek translation of the OT.

The Septuagint or the Greek OT defines “seer” as the “glancing one.”

The prophet simply needs to glance and see in the Spirit and instinctively knows what the Lord says, not needing the acquisition or learning of progressive knowledge, which is discernment.

Instinctive knowledge is gut feeling knowledge. One can then prophesy by this type of spiritual glancing.

I Sam 9: 18  Septuagint  And Saul {1} drew near to Samuel into the midst of the city, and said, Tell me now {2} which is the house of the seer? (Which is the house of the glancing one?)

The seer, the “Hozeh” or “Roeh”, in the Hebrew is the “seeing one. Roeh comes from the Hebrew word Raah which is defined as seeing.

In the Septuagint, he is called the “glancing one.” The word “blepo” in the Greek is to see by just having to glance at something. The seer is called the “bleponta” or the one who simply glance to prophesy.

The seer is the prophet that sees in the Spirit in the dimension of visions and dreams.  Most of these prophetic revelations occur within the realm of the personal relationship with the Lord. The reception of dreams and visions is the product of the prophet’s personal communion with the Lord.

I Sam 9: 18  Septuagint  And Saul {1} drew near to Samuel into the midst of the city, and said, Tell me now {2} which is the house of the seer? (Which is the house of the glancing one?)

1 Sam 9:19  And Samuel answered Saul, and said, I am the seer (the seeing or glancing one): go up before me unto the high place; for ye shall eat with me to day, and to morrow I will let thee go, and will tell thee all that is in thine heart.

A high place- the possession of key terrains to the extent that they bring you to a place of acquiring firm control in the spiritual realm.

The dignity of the prophet is the ability to declare to others what is within their hearts.

The “Nabiy” or the prophet is defined as the one “who bubbles up” or “speaks in a frenzy”. In this manner of speaking, the prophet’s vocal chords are under the control and the impulses of the Lord’s mouth deep within their spirit.

When I was asking the Lord how to speak in this ecstatically activated, or by the speaking forth of God’s rhema discourse as it bubbles up from within the spirit, the Lord showed me “His mouth” deep in my spirit.

Notice that the Hebrew translation according to the commandment of the LORD should really translate as “At the mouth of Yahweh”.

Nu 12:8  With him will I speak mouth to mouth, even apparently, and not in dark speeches; and the similitude of the LORD shall he behold: wherefore then were ye not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?

Septuagint- “Mouth, according to mouth.”

In other words, the very life; (its regulations, restrictions, and boundaries dictating the prophet’s life as it consumes him,) is the mouth of the Lord dwelling within the prophet’s spirit.  God’s spiritual mouth must be revealed within the prophet as it controls the prophets’ mouth, by opening it and bubbling up to it the rhematic discourse of the Lord.

Exodus 17:1  And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD (As by the mouth of Yahweh), and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.

Numbers 4:37  These were they that were numbered of the families of the Kohathites, all that might do service in the tabernacle of the congregation, which Moses and Aaron did number according to the commandment of the LORD (At the mouth of Yahweh),  by the hand of Moses.

Numbers 4:41  These are they that were numbered of the families of the sons of Gershon, of all that might do service in the tabernacle of the congregation, whom Moses and Aaron did number according to the commandment (At the mouth of Yahweh),  of the LORD.

When we speak with our human mouths, we do not think of what we are going to say. Our instinctual thought patterns are perfectly synchronized with our mouths so that the thoughts are vocalized as utterances almost simultaneously.

When we speak ecstatically “at the mouth of God”, His mouth, deep within our spirits, seizes and titillates our vocal chords in the same way that our mind seizes and titillates our vocal chords when we speak from a human standpoint.

The deeper that we live in the world of the Spirit, the closer that we live “By the mouth of the Lord” which dwells deep within our spirits.

Mat 3:11  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

I am not sure if the expression “and with fire” is in the Dative Greek noun case “of location” (IN FIRE) or in “instrumentality” (WITH FIRE).

In either case it does not really matter.  We have been submerged not only into the world of the Holy Spirit, but likewise into the world of the Holy Spirit’s fire.

We have been taught that the baptism of fire is what the Lord uses to purge and purify us. However, fire also has the property, which heats and causes water to boil.

The deeper that we live in the world of the Spirit, the more in contact we shall come with that fire which causes the ministry of the NABIY to come forth as he or she speaks through the bubbling up, or the agitation of the Spirit’s rivers of water as they boil up by the action of the “baptism with fire.” The fire of the Spirit causes the rivers of living waters to boil up prophetically.

My friend Leo Lesaca, like wise saw a vision where we become engorged with the fullness of the Spirit, and the prophetic discourses are literally vomited out of our mouths. That is prophetic power.

Visions as a Documentation of History

2 Chronicles 9:29  Now the rest of the acts of Solomon, first and last, are they not written in the book of Nathan the prophet, and in the prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite, and in the visions of Iddo the seer against Jeroboam the son of Nebat?

This the only instance of the use of this particular genre of vision among a broad family of visions.

In this case the visions of Iddo, they represented part of the historical collection of the life of Jeroboam.

Visions prompted through an Ecstatic State.  

(The Strong’s family of visions # 1611 in the NT and # 04236 in the OT)

Ekstatis  ( Strong’s Number 1611)

By some sudden emotion the prophet is transported as it were out of himself.  In this rapt condition, although he is awake, his mind is drawn off from all surrounding objects and wholly fixed on things divine. He sees nothing but the forms and images lying within, and thinks that he perceives with his bodily eyes and ears realities shown him by God.

The result of being so immersed in the Spirit of God, in which the Spirit of God floods, titillates, and controls all the sensory perceptions of the minister.

Acts 10:10  And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance

Literal Greek: “Fell upon him ekstatis.”

Ac 11:5  I was in the city of Joppa praying: and in a trance I saw a vision, A certain vessel descend, as it had been a great sheet, let down from heaven by four corners; and it came even to me:

Greek: “I saw” (to glance and know by gut feeling knowledge) in ecstasy, a vision.

Ac 22:17  And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance

Greek: I became in ecstasy.

Gen 15:1  After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying (rhematic or flow of prophetic words ), Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward.

Hebrew: The logos (concept) word of the Lord came to Abram rhematically or prophetically speaking.

Sept:1 And after these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram, I shield thee, thy reward shall be very great.

Septuagint; The rhema word of the Lord came “into fellowship” with Abram in the sphere of a vision.

Balaam

Numb 24:3  And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

(Septuagint)3  And he took up his parable and said, Balaam son of Beor says, the man who sees truly says, The man who discerns with accurateness and according to fact.

4  he says who hears the oracle ( Who is hearing the rhematic discourse of God) of the Mighty One, who saw a vision of God(  Who saw the vision of God with discernment) in sleep; his eyes were opened:( uncovered as in “apocalypses”: a  spiritual revelation)

Nu 24:4  He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:

Septuagint: Who discerned the vision of God while in the realm of sleep, his eyes being uncovered. (Spiritual eyes, that is.)

The Septuagint tells us that Balaam’s physical eyes being asleep caused his spiritual eyes to be opened.  To the proportion that we close our natural sensory perceptions as we submerge ourselves into the world of the Holy Spirit is to the proportion that our spiritual sensory perceptions will be opened.

Please see with me the Hebrew exegesis of the same verses, as follows.

Numb 24:3  And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

Numb 24:3  And he took up TWOT-1421: his parable, and said) to say, speak, utter, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said:

The TWOT is the Theological Wordbook of the OT. It’s an indispensable study tool.

Balaam had his outer senses closed so that he could have his inner senses opened.

The outer perception is closed to the world so that the inner one could be opened.

Whose (spiritual) eyes are unclosed has uttered prophetically as and oracle of God through the unclosed condition of his spiritual eyes.

Our spiritual eyes must be made naked and unclosed if we are to truly minister in the Spirit.

Nu 24:4  He hath said, which heard the words of God, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open:

Visions as Means of Attaining To Revelation & also Visions Found Within Dreams While Sleeping

(The Strong’s # 04759 family of visions)

Gen 46:2  And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.

God speaks in the sphere or in the world of a vision

Ex 38:8  And he made the laver of brass, and the foot of it of brass, of the lookingglasses of the women assembling, which assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.

Looking glass or mirror is the same word used for this type of vision.

Nu 12:6  And he said, Hear now my words: If there be a prophet among you, I the LORD will make myself known unto him in a vision  and will speak unto him in a dream.

Setuagint: 6  And he said to them, Hear my words: If there should be of you a prophet to the Lord, I will be made known to him in a vision, and in sleep will I speak to him. (In sleep I will utter “prophetically” to him.)

Eze 1:1  Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw(discerned) visions <04759> of God.

Eze 8:3  And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions<04759> of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.

Setuagint3  And he stretched forth the likeness of a hand, and took me by the crown of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between the earth and sky, and brought me to Jerusalem in a vision ( and led me into Jerusalem in the sphere of, or by a vision) of God, to the porch of the {1} gate that looks to the north, where was the pillar of the {2} Purchaser. {1)

Eze 40:2  In the visions <04759> of God brought he me into the land of Israel, and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south.

Septuagint: in a vision of God into the land of Israel (And led me in a vision or by a vision into the land of Israel), and set me on a very high mountain, and upon it there was as it were the frame of a city before me.

Da 10:7  And I Daniel alone saw the vision <04759>: for the men that were with me saw not the vision <04759>; but a great quaking fell upon them, so that they fled to hide themselves.

Septuagint: And I Daniel only saw the vision (a sight, a vision, an appearance presented to one whether asleep or awake): and the men that were with me saw not the vision (a sight, a vision, an appearance presented to one whether asleep or awake) ; but a great amazement fell upon them (a great ecstasy fell upon them), and they fled in fear.

Psalms 89:19  Then thou spakest in vision (VISION RESPECTING FUTURE EVENTS, PROPHETIC VISION, AN UTTERED ORACLE IN AN ECSTATIC STATE FROM THE MOUTH OF THE LORD) to thy holy one, and saidst ( Prophetic Flow), I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen out of the people.

Septuagint: You uttered in the realm or in the world of a vision.

The Mantle of Elijah

2 King 2:8  And Elijah took his mantle  TWOT-28c , and wrapped it together TWOT-354, and smote (Hiphil-Imperfect) the waters, and they were divided hither and thither, so that they two went over on dry ground.

The Hiphil Hebrew Verb Tense; Is the Causative Tense. In other words, as Elijah, many times we must cause the action as God prompts us to do something. God most times does not give us things magically.

The TWOT is the Theological Wordbook of the OT. An indispensable tool.

Mantle comes from what is majestic; because it is a costly robe.

 2 Kings 2:9  And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double TWOT-2421a portion TWOT-1738; of thy spirit be upon me.

“A double portion:” Hebrew translation “DUAL MOUTHS”

The double portion of God’s Spirit is not a multiplication or stacking up of the Spirit’s power. It is not a “doubling up” of an item.  The Hebrew tells us that it signifies ‘duality” or “two’s”

A double portion can be likened to two set of wheels in a big truck that gives it stability, or seeing through the two eye pieces of a binocular which gives fullness of vision, or the counsel of two mouths which gives us wisdom.

The Ministry of Daniel

Dan 5:12  Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, pre-eminent, surpassing, extreme, extraordinary and knowledge TWOT-2765a, 2834, and understanding, TWOT-3009a interpreting (Explain) of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences(Declaration of  enigmas and riddles), and dissolving of doubts  (Solution to difficult and complicated problems; all BY the Instrumentality of Spirit of God,) were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.

An excellent spirit – Excessive, abundant, preeminent, and surpassing.  (This is requirement to function in the deep riches of God.)

Literal: interpreting dreams, explanations of mysteries, and dissolving knots.

Dan 2:26   The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?

To make known: To communicate or tell me

I have seen

Interpretation

28  But there is a God in heaven that revealeth TWOT-2656 secrets TWOT-2993 (Peal Participle Active), and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these

Revealeth (Peal active) The piel verb tense demonstrates intensive, emphatic action. The peal is the passive function of the verb. God is using dreams to intensively reveal His will to Daniel.

“Maketh known” perfect tense. The perfect tense is completed action with continuing results. The ministry of dreams can make an affair to be accurately known. Things in the future where being made known to Daniel.

Dan 4:5  I saw TWOT-2725; 1a1) to see1a2) to see, behold, witness1a3) to behold a dream  which made me afraid, and the thoughts upon my bed and the visions TWOT-2725a of my head troubled me.

9  O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians, because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee, and no secret troubleth thee, tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen, and the interpretation thereof.

Abraham

Gen 20:3  But God came to Abimelech in a dream by night(God entered in BY a dream), and said to him dream (with prophetic meaning) ( a prophetic discourse BY means of a dream; the importance of dreams in our lives), Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.

Sept 3  And God came to Abimelech by night in sleep ( came God into fellowship with Abimelech in the sphere of the sleep of the night), and said, Behold, thou diest for the woman, whom thou hast taken, whereas she has lived with a husband.

The Septuagint tells us that God uses the world of sleep to fellowship with us.

6   And God said unto him in a dream,) dream (with prophetic meaning) (God was speaking to him in a continuum of time through a prophetic dialogue BY means of a dream) Yea, I know that thou didst this in the integrity of thy heart; for I also withheld thee from sinning against me: therefore suffered I thee not to touch her.

Septuagint 6  And God said to him in sleep ( According to sleep), Yea, I knew that thou didst this with a pure heart, and I spared thee, so that thou shouldest not sin against me, therefore I suffered thee not to touch her.

According to sleep: Sleep was the boundary, or need for God to speak to him.

Solomon

1King 3:5  In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon (Passive tense: This is grammatical tense of prophetical revelation)  in a dream ( dream with prophetic meaning) by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

Solomon’s great calling and ministry was initiated through a dream!

The passive verb tense talks about being introduced in a realm of state or existence.

SEPT 5 And the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night and the Lord said to Solomon, Ask some petition for thyself.

Septuagint: “The Lord seen with discernment by Solomon occurred in the world of the sleep of the night.

Saul

1 Sam 10:5  After that thou shalt come to the hill of God, where is the garrison of the Philistines: and it shall come to pass, when thou art come thither to the city, that thou shalt meet a company of prophets coming down from the high place with a psaltery, and a tabret, and a pipe, and a harp, before them; and they shall prophesy: Hithpael  Participle

Psaltery: harp, guitar, lute

Tabret: tambourine

Pipe:  flute

Harp:  harp

Hithpael: Reflexive participle: Prophesying birthed more and more prophesying.

6  And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon  thee, and thou shalt prophesy (Hithpael  verb tense)  with them, and shalt be turned TWOT-512 into another man.

The Spirit of God seized Saul who came in contact with the band of prophets and caused him to become associated with them as the musical instruments brought them into an ecstatic state. Propecy turned Saul into another man.

1 Sam 19:23  And he went thither to Naioth in Ramah: and the Spirit of God was upon him also, and he went on, and prophesied (Hithpael –Imperfect) , until he came to Naioth in Ramah.

24  And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night. Wherefore they say, Is Saul also among the prophets?

Prophesied in the reflexive imperfect prostrated bare and naked (ecstatic ministry)

Moses

Num 11:26  But there remained two of the men in the camp, the name of the one was Eldad, and the name of the other Medad: and the spirit rested TWOT-1323; upon them; and they were of them that were written, but went not out unto the tabernacle: and they prophesied (Hithpael Imperfect ) in the camp.

Rested   TWOT 1323 (Abide)

The hithpael is the reflexive verb tense. This means that the prophet caused the action of the prophecy by the Spirit of God to cause him to prophecy even more. The more that we use our spiritual gifts that more that spiritual gifts will be added unto us. This is called reflexive action.

Samuel

1Sam 9:6  And he said unto him, Behold now, there is in this city a man of God, and he is an honourable  TWOT-943 passive man; all that he saith piel imperfect cometh TWOT-212; surely to pass TWOT-212;: now let us go thither; peradventure he can shew TWOT-1289 us our way that we should go.

Passive: A realm of existence. Samuel existed in a realm of being an honorable or glorious man of God. Glory is kabod in the Hebrew which talks about weight. Samuel was a weighty man with God’s glory.

Elisha

2 King 4:38 And Elisha came again to Gilgal: and there was a dearth in the land; and the sons of the prophets were sitting before him: and he said unto his servant, Set on the great pot, and seethe pottage for the sons of the prophets.

Modesty of life among ministers. A walk of faith and not money

A common place of meeting and a common meal

42  And there came a man from Baalshalisha, and brought the man of God bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and full ears of corn in the husk thereof. And he said, Give unto the people, that they may eat.

Common meal; Modesty of life among ministers. A walk of faith and not money

2 King 6:1 And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us.

Hosea

Hosea 12:10  I have also spoken by the prophets, and I have multiplied visions, and used similitudes, by the ministry of the prophets.

I have also spoken – Emphatic tense- The Lord’s voice is heard in one of its most important manifestations through the mouths of the prophets

Visions: The vision either in a dream, or as the result of an ecstatic state which produces revelation, or a vision which produces a prophecy

Similitudes:  “What resembles or what likens to.” Once again the emphatic tense showing to us the importance of symbolic resemblances and likenesses in the ministry of prophets.

David

2 Sam 7:17  According to all these words, and according to all this visionTWOT-633e;1) vision1a) vision (in the ecstatic state)1a1) valley of vision (perhaps fig. of Jerusalem or Hinnom)1b) vision (in the night)1c) vision, oracle, prophecy (in divine communication), so did Nathan speak unto David.

Visions “valley of vision” or the vision either in a dream, or as the result of an ecstatic state which produces revelation, or a vision which produces a prophecy

So did Nathan speak – Emphatic and intensive tense showing to us the importance of visions in the ministry of prophets.

Habakuk

Habakuk 1:1 The burdenTWOT-1421d, 1421e;2) utterance, oracle, burden

which Habakkuk the prophet did see. TWOT-633; v1a1) to see, behold1a2) to see as a seer in the ecstatic state1a3) to see, perceive1a3a) with the intelligence1a3b) to see (by experience)1a3c) to provide.

To see: Is in the perfect tense.  Habakkuk uttered prophesied only after seeing the completed rhema word.  The seeing in this scripture is the result of a vision. The vision comes either in an ecstatic state prompted by the fullness of the Holy Spirit. Or it is also to prophecy as the result of the vision

Burdens of the Lord

Zech 1:1  The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the LORD.

The burden – The prophetic utterance as an oracle of God.  Burdens were usually prophetic utterances of a judgmental nature. The utterance did not focus on the prophet but on the object of their prophecy.  Full of weight and labor, hence something which must be carried.

Num 11:17  And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden ( either the burden of ministry or prophetic utterances which administer government)  of the people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone.

Dream of Warning and Impending Danger

Gen 20: 2  And Abraham said of Sarah his wife, She is my sister: and Abimelech king of Gerar sent, and took Sarah.

3  But God came to Abimelech in a dreamTWOT-663a by night, and said to him, Behold, thou art but a dead man, for the woman which thou hast taken; for she is a man’s wife.

Matthew 2:12  And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their own country another way.

Matthew 2:13  And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Matthew 2:19  But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

Dream Promising an Inheritance

Gen 28:11  And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

12  And he dreamed, TWOT-662,663; a2) to dream (prophetic)

and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

13  And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;

Dream of a Future Reign or Ministry

Gen 37:9  And he dreamed a TWOT-662,663;  yet another dream, TWOT-663a and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.

Dreams Which Changed the Courses of Two Nations

Genesis 40:9  And the chief butler told his dream to Joseph, and said to him, In my dream, behold, a vine was before me;

Genesis 40:16  When the chief baker saw that the interpretationTWOT-1860; was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head:

Dream Promising Victory in a Major Battle

Judges 7:13  And when Gideon was come, behold, there was a man that told a dream unto his fellow, and said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and, lo, a cake of barley bread tumbled into the host of Midian, and came unto a tent, and smote it that it fell, and overturned it, that the tent lay along.

Spiritual Gifting Imparted Through Dreams

1 Kings 3:5  In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.

Matthew 1:20  But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

Writing Down The Vision

Hab 2:2  And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision TWOT-633a; n m1) vision1a) vision (in ecstatic state)1b) vision (in night)1c) vision, oracle, prophecy (divine communication)1d) vision (as title of book of prophecy)

and make it plain (Piel)1a) to make plain, distinct1b) to make clear1c) to declare1d) letters on a tablet upon tables, board, slab, tablet, plank1a) tablets (of stone)1b) boards (of wood)1c) plate (of metal) that he may run o run1a1) to run

that readeth it.

To Drop the Word of the Lord
