Sewing in the Bible – Yes! Even the Bible does mention sewing in a few places. #sewing #bgbg2
Sewing in the Bible
I found a few Bible verses about sewing and figured I would share with my readers. Plus the Hebrew and Greek of the word.
Lexicon :: Strong’s H8609 – tāp̄ar (Hebrew)
a primitive root; to sew:—(women that) sew (together).
- to sew together
- (Qal) to sew, sew together
- to sew
- sewing (participle)
Lexicon :: Strong’s G1976 – epiraptō (Greek)
to sew upon, sew to
“No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; otherwise the patch pulls away from it, the new from the old, and a worse tear results.”
“A time to tear apart and a time to sew together; A time to be silent and a time to speak.”
“Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings.”
“I have sewed sackcloth over my skin And thrust my horn in the dust.”
“and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God, “Woe to the women who sew magic bands on all wrists and make veils for the heads of persons of every stature to hunt down lives! Will you hunt down the lives of My people, but preserve the lives of others for yourselves?”
Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Matthew 19:24
