Phrases From The KJV – #1

I’ve begun reading through the KJV this year since it’s its 400th anniversary.  So far, I’ve made it through Genesis 26.  Here is a collection of words or phrases which caught my attention, for whatever reason, with no context at all:

  • Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
  • But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.
  • And the vale of Siddim was full of slimepits;
  • And Melchizedek king of Salem brought forth bread and wine: and he was the priest of the most high God.
  • And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.
  • fetcht [in the sense of fetching something]
  • Peradventure
  • Jehovahjireh
  • damsel
  • Then Abraham gave up the ghost, and died in a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.
  • And Jacob sod pottage:
  • Isaac was sporting with Rebekah his wife.
