Leviticus 13:10 (a) The word is used here to describe proud-flesh, or a similar pathological condition. It indicates a sore that is actively sensitive, and filled with diseased tissue.

Numbers 16:30 (a) This word is used to describe the matter of time in regard to the fall of these rebels. Since hell is only eleven miles from the surface of the earth, it did not take long for these rebellious men to go there. It may also refer to the fact that they were alive. In other places it is used in contrast with "the dead." (See Psalm 55:15).

Isaiah 11:3 (a) The word is used in this case to indicate an alert mind, one that is apt to understand easily, and to grasp without effort the facts under consideration.

Acts 10:42 (a) This is one of those places in which the word is used to describe those who are living, in contrast with those who have died. (See also2Ti 4:1; 1 Peter 4:5).

Hebrews 4:12 (a) This is a description which indicates that the Scriptures are searching, living and powerful. They are not ordinary writings. They are not the product of men's minds. Our Lord said "The words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit and they are Life." John 6:63.
