Original Words Notes List

O r i g i n a l  W o r d s  N o t e s  A 3

amen: this Hebrew word means firm and hence also faithful:.Revelation 3:14. Amen is 'I Am'.

In Isaiah 65:16, the Authorized Version has "the God of truth," which in Hebrew is "the God of Amen". It was frequently used by Emmanuel to give emphasis to His words, where it is translated "verily".

Prior to the word 'amen' in the Bible, the word referred to an ancient pagan god, Amon, out of Mithraism, an ancient Persian pagan cult followed by those under the 'Holy' Roman Empire.

Sometimes only however, in John's Gospel, it is repeated, "Verily, verily". The word 'amen' is used as an epithet of the Lord Emmanuel the Christ:.Revelation 3:14.

It is found singly and sometimes doubly at the end of prayers.(Psalms 41:13; 72:19; 89:52), to confirm the words and agree with the intent of them. It is used in token of being bound by an oath:.Numbers 5:22.

In the primitive churches it was common for the general audience to say "Amen" at the close of the prayer:.Matthew 6:7; 1Corinthians 14:16.

The promises of God are Amen; i.e., they are all true and sure:.2Corinthian 1:20. More on word 'amen'.

-Asaph: the name means convener or collector. Asaph was a  Levite; one of the leaders of David's choir:.1Chronicles 6:39. Psalms 50 and Psalms chapters 73-83.inclusive are attributed to him. He is mentioned along with David as skilled in music and a seer:.2Chronicles 29:30. The singers of Asaph, mentioned in.Ezra 2:41, were his descendants and a class of poets or singers who 
recognized him as their master.
