Unicorns or goats?
« on: May 03, 2017, 12:03:22 PM »

All -

I do not recollect that unicorns were in The Old Testament Scriptures, as I thought the word was goat or wild ox; yet look at these KJV Scriptures:

Daniel 8:5
And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes.

Numbers 23:22
God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.

Numbers 24:8
God brought him forth out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn: he shall eat up the nations his enemies, and shall break their bones, and pierce them through with his arrows.

Deuteronomy 33:17
His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.

Job 39:9
Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?

Job 39:10
Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?

Psalm 22:21
Save me from the lionís mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns.

Psalm 29:6
He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.

Psalm 92:10
But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

Isaiah 34:7
And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

Curious!

Hebrews  H7214 in Strong's Concordance defines Unicorn as "a wild bull" (from its conspicuousness)
H7213  a primitive root, to rise - be lifted up.

Seems that the KJV translators made more of it than was required.

Bob -

Thank you for sharing this:

Hebrews  H7214 in Strong's Concordance defines Unicorn as "a wild bull" (from its conspicuousness)
H7213  a primitive root, to rise - be lifted up.

Seems that the KJV translators made more of it than was required.

This makes more sense.

Warmest Regards.
