Thought

THOUGHT

thot:

The most frequent word in the Old Testament (machashebheth, from the verb chashabh, "to think") refers to a "device," or a purpose firmly fixed, as in the passage in Isa (55:7-9) where the "thought" of God and of man are contrasted (compare Psalms 40:5; 92:5; Jeremiah 29:11). In the New Testament dialogismos (Matthew 15:19; 1 Corinthians 3:20), refers to the inner reasoning or deliberation of one with himself.
