Quote from: Rev. Edward Engelbrecht on September 29, 2021, 03:13:05 PMA simile just includes a comparative particle to make the figurative use obvious. The connection between the passages was the use of the same word in different senses. But I'm guessing you knew that.Use in context determines meaning. Lexicons just summarize such usage and by nature are never comprehensive. So we follow Scripture interprets Scripture rather than lexicon interprets Scripture.The passage seems straight forward and is not tripping others up. It seems to have tripped something in your mind as a reader that others do not see. I'm not sure where you are headed but I hope you have a nice trip.
