A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Nile, The River

The biggest river in Africa,  about 3,800 miles (6,100km) long, which in its lower reaches flows through Egypt to a delta emptying into the Mediterranean. The economy of Egypt depends on the waters of the Nile. In the bible the Nile is referred to simply as “the river” (Gen 41:1 etc.),

 

New Moon

 

A day of rejoicing and feasting (Hos 2:11), on which one refrained from work (Amos 8:5).   It marked the beginning of the month with family meals (I Sam 20:5-6), visits to the prophet (II Kgs 4:23) and assemblies at the Temple (Is 1:13-15). On the New Moon special sacrifices were offered, their number being even greater than those for the Sabbath (Num 28:9-15).                    

 

Nibhaz

 

A god or deity worshiped by the Avites (II Kgs 17:31), who were exiled to Samaria by the Assyrians (722 B.C.).
