Hello Mr. Smith,

Above is a website containing a translation of the Old English word "Ece" as contained in a poem entitled "Caedmons' Hymn"(658-680AD). I hope you find this of interest.

I wish you all the best
Sincerely
John


Dear John:  Thanks!  What, may I ask, did you deduce from "ece" being translated "eternal" in this MODERN translation

of a very OLD poem?  Did ece mean eternal as it is defined in today's English dictionaries, or did the modern translator

of this old poem just think that ece means eternal?  Even the old Latin "eternus" from which we get the modern word "eternal,"

did not mean "eternal" or "endless time."  This is a meaning that theologians put on this word which changed the original

meaning.  It's like Justinian's "ENDLESS ages."  Since all ages end, Justinian introduced us to a corrupted doctrine with

ages that never end--"endless ages."  Even though a strict and honest etymology proves that the very word "endLESS"

means "less" than an "end."  "Less" never means "more."  How many homes does a "homeLESS person have?"  How fearful

is a "fearLESS person?"  Does anything that is "priceLESS" have a price?  Just how much "hope" is there in the word

"hopeLESS?"  It is only with "time" words that theologians have totally corrupted our language.  "TimeLESS" means

"less time," not "more time" or "eternity."  Likewise, "ageLESS" means less than an age, not an infinity of ages.  The modern

translations of Philo and Plato also use "eternal" to represent "aionios," but the original writings prove no such meaning. Some

ignorantly suggest that calling pagan gods "aionios" proves that the word meant "endless or eternal."  Oh really?  And is that

why these same gods killed each other and DIED--because they were eternal?!

God be with you,
