Wordy Wednesday: baraq

I generally try to concentrate on Greek as the Biblical language I’d like to learn first, however during a recent search through Biblical texts for a word to name my flash drive I ran across the Hebrew word “baraq” and thought it not only accurately described my 8Gig temporary storage drive, but our current president as well.

What it means

Hebrew

בָּרָ

Transliteration/Pronunciation

baraq/bä·räk’

Strong’s

H1300

Definition

Flash, lightning, glittering.

Generally something that is big and impressive, but doesn’t last very long. It’s used to describe lightning, swords, the voice of God when He speaks, and the appearance of the messiah in Ezekiel and Daniel.
