Adore

EASTON’S BIBLE DICTIONARY (1897 EDITION)

Return to Index

Adore – to worship; to express reverence and homage.

The forms of adoration among the Jews were putting off the shoes (Ex. 3:5; Josh. 5:15), and prostration (Gen. 17:3; Ps. 95:6; Isa. 44:15, 17, 19; 46:6).

To “kiss the Son” in Ps. 2:12 is to adore and worship him. (See Dan. 3:5, 6.)

The word itself does not occur in Scripture.
