Son. (Hebrew, ben). The term "son" is used in Scripture language to imply almost any kind of descent or succession, as ben shanah, "son of a year," that is, a year old; ben kesheth, "son of a bow," that is, an arrow. The Greek word, bar, is often found, in the New Testament, in composition, as Bar-timaeus.
