"parlous" times

"whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things pertain to love, whatsoever things are of honest report, if there be any virtuous thing, if there be any laudable thing, (of learning) those same have ye in your mind, Php. 4:8

"parlous" times

Postby jadmin » Sun May 31, 2009 9:32 am

2 Timothy 3:1
This understand, that in the last days shall come parlous times:
- Tyndale and friends Bible

2 Timothy chapter 3 gives plenty of clues that terrifyingly fit the meaning of that "parlous" old word, indicative of times fraught with danger. Nowadays we indeed live with dangerous waters, where the bold are venturesome and keen to the most mischievous levels; even to exhaustion in deep manure.

Code: Select all
According to the Dictionaries: Parlous seems to be an interesting old (even obselete) English word that meant dangerously cunning, or cleverly shrewd in it's workings.

Also wherefrom came the word "perilous" indicative of a condition greatly dangerous to a large extent.

PARLOUS: dangerously sentencing


Matthew 8 also gives a great clue where that same Greek word is found, perhaps as a shadow even to something more "fierce" that God allows to come upon today's parlous world age.
Matthew 8:28
And when he was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesites, there met him two possessed of devils, which came out of the graves, and were out of measure fierce, so that no man might go by that way.
- Tyndale and friends Bible
