Eminent

Eminent

Something raised up high.

And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine EMINENT place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare. They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords. ( Ezekiel 16:39-40 )

EMINENT

em'-i-nent:

In the King James Version (only in Ezekiel 16:24,31,39; 17:22) refers literally to physical elevation; the Revised Version (British and American) in the last passage renders "lofty" (Hebrew talul, "uplifted," "heaped up") and in the others "vaulted place" (Hebrew gabh, "rounded place," "mound" the English Revised Version, margin "a vaulted chamber").
