Discussion for Hebrews 10:32

  • Tarsha Miller on Hebrews 10:32
    In Hebrews Chapter 10 verse 32. Why was the word enlightened replaced with illuminate?
  • Chris - in Reply on Hebrews 10:32
    Do you mean why the KJV & some other versions use the word 'illuminated' instead of 'enlightened'? If so, both words mean the same in the original Greek 'photizo' = to enlighten, illumine, to bring light, to reveal.

    In Hebrews 6:4, the word used there is 'enlightened' which is from the same root word 'photizo'. Why the difference, I can't tell.

    But if you mean why a change was made in the KJV to read 'illuminated', then that question can only be answered to those who were involved in the translation.
