Resource Toolbox

rḗ - mem´bẽr , rḗ - mem´brans : "Remember" is mostly the translation, in the Old Testament, of זכר , zākhar , and in the New Testament of μνάμαι , mnáomai ( Matthew 5:23 ; Matthew 26:75 ; John 2:17 , etc.), and of μνημονεύω , mnēmoneúō (Matthew 16:9 ; Mark 8:18 ; Luke 17:32 , etc.), and "remembrance" the translation of derivatives of these (zekher , anámnēsis , etc.). There are a few other words. "To remember" is used of God in remembering persons (Genesis 8:1 ; Genesis 19:29 , etc.), His covenant (Genesis 9:15 ; Exodus 2:24 ; Ezekiel 16:60 , etc.), in answering prayer (Judges 16:28 ; Nehemiah 13:14 , Nehemiah 13:22 ; Psalm 20:3 , etc.), and in other ways. Men are exhorted to "remember" God's dealings with them, His commandments (Deuteronomy 8:2 , Deuteronomy 8:18 ; Judges 8:34 ; 1 Chronicles 16:12 , etc.), the Sabbath (Exodus 20:8 ), etc. A specially solemn command is that relating to the Lord's Supper in Luke 22:19 ; 1 Corinthians 11:24 , 1 Corinthians 11:25 , "This do in remembrance of me." "Remembrancer" (writer of chronicles) occurs in the King James Version margin of 2 Samuel 8:16 ; 2 Samuel 20:24 ; 1 Kings 4:3 ; 1 Chronicles 18:15 (text "recorder," the Revised Version margin "chronicler"). In Isaiah 62:6 , the Revised Version (British and American) reads, "ye that are Yahweh's remembrancers." the Revised Version (British and American) has frequent changes on the King James Version text, as "have marked" (1 Samuel 15:2 ); "make mention of" (Psalm 20:7 ; Psalm 77:11 ; Song of Solomon 1:4 ); "remember" for "be ye mindful of" (1 Chronicles 16:15 ); "memorial" for "remembrance" (Isaiah 57:8 ); in the American Standard Revised Version, "to his holy memorial name" (Psalm 30:4 ; Psalm 97:12 , the English Revised Version "to his holy name," margin "Hebrew 'memorial' "); in 2 Timothy 1:5 , "having been reminded of" for the King James Version "call to remembrance," etc.
