An Idiom from Judaism

This idiom made a frame in my mind as I was reading the captivity of the Jews in Egypt. In the contemporary world the Jews became enslaved and made captive by the mad Hitler. The Jews are races who are travelers in the Wilderness. Traveler in the Wilderness as an Idiom means someone who is plagued by earthly troubles and sorrows. Oh God Jehovah Jesus make my victory while I am a traveler in the Wilderness.

An Idiom from the Bible

When Moses and the Israelites were fleeing from the Pharaoh after the Pharaoh letting them go, the pharaoh became hardhearted and sent his army after them. Then people of Israel grumbled: it would have been better for us to be slaves in Egypt rather than Corpses in the Wilderness. Slaves in Egypt and Corpses in the Wilderness are an idiom meaning choosing an alternative that is difficult and tiresome but something which will read rich dividends in the end.

Biblical Idioms

Biblical Idioms
These idioms are coined from the Book—Exodus. Moses the liberator went up to the mountains to talk to God. He returned after 40 days. When he came back he saw that the Israelites had made a golden calf and were merry making with it. He, in a fit of anger, threw the tablet of stone containing the Ten Commandments. And it broke. The tablet of stone as an idiom means seething with anger. Golden Calf as an idiom means idolatry. God became the tablets of Stone when he dealt with Sodom and Gomorrah. Most religions indulge in the Golden Calf.

Yesterday night I had a strange dream of being attacked by an unknown person. I looked up at the dream dictionary and found out that being attacked means the fear and insecurities of the dreamer. Anyway the dream was not a pleasant one. I hope unlucky days will soon vanish and the grace of God Jehovah Jesus will pervade with me with LUCK.

I developed a new figure of speech called (thought (a) phor). For example: the word liberal has the antonyms strict and also conservative. Such a word which has two different antonyms is called a thoughtaphor.

I read into the Bible and I have coined two new idioms. Long after the death of the Pharaoh and after the reign of Joseph, the country was ruled by a Pharaoh who ill-treated the Jews. God started sending the 7 plagues in-order to let the Israelites go. But the Pharaoh remained adamant as ever. Then God asked the Semites to kill a goat or sheep and smear the blood on their doors and in the night the hand of God will visit the country and kill the entire first one born except the Jews. Smearing the door with blood means victory over one’s enemies. Yes, God will smear my door with blood. God also asked the captives in Egypt to have feast with unleavened bread known as the festival of the Passover. The Festival of the Passover means joy and wondrous rejoicing after a period of great trials and hardships in life.
