Section Words to Wycliffe (the other sections → rkw011.htm)
Words – On the Decalogue, “the words of the covenant, the ten words”. → rca052.htm
Work, working, works
- Good works – Look under the heading “Good works”.
- “The works of the law”.
- Galatians 3:2, “This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith?” → rca082.htm
- Galatians 2:16 “A man is not justified by the works of the law but by faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no flesh shall be justified”. → roa113.htm
- James 2:24 versus Galatians 2:16 – did James and Paul disagree with each other, regarding “works”? → roa113.htm
- Galatians 3:10, “for as many as are of the works of the Law are under a curse”. → rca082.htm
- Look also under the headings “Covenants” and “Righteousness”.
- On what the apostle Paul meant when he said to the elders from Ephesus, “I have shown you in everything, that by working hard like this, we must support the infirm”. → rma023.htm
- When the apostle Paul was a free man and in health, he supported himself through manual work. (He was a tentmaker.) → rma033.htm – rma023.htm – rma052.htm
- The apostle Paul taught that all able-bodied people should work for their own sustenance. → rma033.htm – rma023.htm
- In the New Testament passages where English bible-translations have the word “world”, the Greek text often speaks about aiôn which also meant “age”. Likewise, the Greek word gê (and the Hebrew erets) could mean different things – “ground”, “soil”, “land” or “earth” (sometimes even “Earth”). This has led to many misunderstandings and confusion in both translations and study (“world” is not the same as “age”; “ground” is not the same as “Earth”).
- In this world, there is much evil, sickness, pain, wars and suffering. Why does God allow that? → rwa012.htm
- Are the rulers and governments of this world appointed by God? Also: Some writers have talked about “the divine right of kings”, but is there such a thing? → rwa023.htm
- The rulers of this world will fight against Jesus, when he returns. → rwa023.htm
- This world’s religious high days, one example. → rwa051.htm
- This world’s churches, are any of them of God? → rga062.htm – raa012.htm – raa032.htm – raa022.htm
- In the “end time”, the world will persecute those who turn to God. → rta042.htm
- Should believers take part in this world’s politics and its political elections? → (raa132.htm)
WORR (A bible-translation.) → rsa092.htm
- In the passages where English bibles have the word “worship”, the relevant words in the Hebrew and Greek texts often refer to bowing down before someone. → raa042.htm
- Worshipping God. What does the Bible say about worship, in connection with the New Covenant? → raa042.htm
- Should believers keep some specific day of the week as a “day of worship”? → raa042.htm
- On the matter of “worship”, including the concept “going to church”. → (raa042.htm)
- Why are candles used as a part of the “worship” that is practised at churches? – Look under the heading “Candles”.
- Is giving money to some church or preacher an “act of worship”? → rma013.htm – raa042.htm
- KJV1769 has in Luke 14:10 an archaism which might confuse some: “Then shalt thou have worship”. That reflects the older meaning of the word “worship”: “Esteem”, “honour”, “respect”. The Greek text has doxa, used in the meaning “esteem”, “honour”.
- Who is being worshipped in Christmas-celebrations? → rwa051.htm
WORS (A bible-translation.) → rsa092.htm

The Old Covenant’s writing consisted of rules engraved on stone tablets, but the New Covenant’s “writing” consists of placing the Holy Spirit in men. → rca063.htm – rca112.htm – rca092.htm – rca052.htm – rca012.htm
- It was king Belshazzar of Babylon who saw the writing on the wall, “mene, mene, tekel, upharsin” (Daniel 5:25). → (rda051.htm) – (rwa082.htm)
