Slime of the Earth

Resource Toolbox

Term used in Holy Scripture in the sense of the material of which man's body is formed, found in the Reims-Douay Version (Genesis 2; Tobias 8). In Tobias it is the translation of a Latin variant, not found in the other ancient texts. The Latin Vulgate renders the Hebrew 'aphar (Genesis 2) as limus; the Reims-Douay Version follows the Vulgate. This is evidently an error of translation; the meaning of 'aphar is dust, and it is thus rendered in all the subsequent places of the Reims-Douay version.
