Tyndale Words

By | 10:44:00 Leave a Comment
In an age when the English language was unrefined, and somewhat of a mix of many languages William Tyndale had to refine and even create words that he used for his translation of the Bible from the original languages into English. He is sometimes called one of the fathers of modern English and many of Shakespeare's phrases flow directly from Tyndale.

Words like:
Jehovah
Scapegoat
Passover
Beautiful
Seashore
Fisherman
Modesty
Showbread
Mercy seat
Propitiation
Atonement
Industrious
Long-suffering
Peacemakers
Stumbling block
Zealous
Mediocrity
