Messenger

Additional Links

mes´en - jẽr : The regular Hebrew word for "messenger" is מלאך , mal'ākh , the Greek ἄγγελος , ággelos . This may be a human messenger or a messenger of God, an angel. The context must decide the right translation. In Haggai 1:13 the prophet is called God's messenger; Job 33:23 changes the King James Version to "angel" (margin "messenger"); and Malachi 3:1 margin, suggests "angel" instead of "messenger." Malachi 2:7 and Malachi 3:1 (twice) have caused a great deal of comment. See MALACHI . The Greek ἀπόστολος , apóstolos , "apostle," is rendered "messenger" in 2 Corinthians 8:23; Philippians 2:25; 1 Samuel 4:17 translations literally, from Hebrew בּשׂר , bāsar , "to tell good news," "he that brought the tidings." Genesis 50:16 reads "message" instead of "messenger."
