TITLE

ti'-t'-l:

John 19:19,20 for titlos.

The following arrangement of the title on the cross has been suggested:

See Geikie, Life and Words of Christ, chapter lxiii, note e; Seymour, The Cross in Tradition, History and Art (New York, 1898), pp. 115, 116,136, 138.

In 2 Kings 23:17, the King James Version has "title" for tsiyyun. The word is connected with tsawah, "to command," and King James Version seems to have understood tsiyyun as "that giving directions," "sign-posts" (compare Ezekiel 39:15). The word, however, means "grave-stone," "monument."

See SUPERSCRIPTION.
