Has any one looked up Husband in the Bible or the Bible dictionary?
Hosea 2:16 And it shall be at that day, saith Yahweh, that thou shalt call me Ishi (husband); and shalt call me no more Baal (LORD).
Strong's Concordance Hebrew #0376
I like to quote the above verse when discussing the word "husband", because, despite the definition in Strong's, the verse is pointing out that we need to identify Yahweh as a "husband". Apparently, Yahweh doesn't really care for being called "LORD", which is another title for Baal.
Why does Yahweh want us to identify HIM as our husband? Because the Covenant is like a marriage vow, and when we choose to make a covenant with Yahweh, we become one with HIM, as in a marriage, just as Messiah Yahshua did. This is a physical to spiritual parallel.
Do you know Yahweh?
Yes the Cherokee tribe pronounded it yo he waah. I gave u a thumbs up also. Thanks.
You might find this site interesting. I put it on my ancestry site.
I also now understand the Passover. It is during the Exodus of the Jews by Moses, and before the Lord sent his rath he told them to put blood over the doorways of their homes so that his rath would pass over their homes. I am sure it can be explained more fully that that. But it is something I always wondered about before I saw the DVD the 10 Commandments, biblical DVD.
Ah, the Cherokee people! We've studied them and found some very interesting things out about them, such as they were probably among the lost tribes of Israel.
Here's an interesting article about the Passover, if you're interested, Whirlwindflower:

Yes the medicine man got my name from the Great Spirit, which is God. So much to learn. Wish I were younger. Do You know Yo he waah(the way we say it)3 sylables like the Hebrews stated that Jesus is God the Father and God the Son. I thought they were separate because of parts of the Bible stating this.
Oh I think I know how to give you my personal email. Put you as a contact and think I can give you permission to use it. Will try.
The Messiah's Hebrew given name is Yahshua (some also say Yahushua). Yahshua is not Yahweh, but Yahweh's first spiritually begotten son.
The male partner in a marriage relationship. Husbands had total authority over thier wives in Bible times, but Paul called on male believer's to love thier wives (Eph. 5:25).
This is from the Everyday Bible Companion Dictionary.
Hope this Helps.
Etymology OF THE WORD HUSBAND
Middle English husbonde, from Old English h?sbonda master of a house, from h?s = house + b?ndi = to band together = one who bands or binds the household together, this is the husband job.
(huz'-band) ('ish; aner): In the Hebrew household the husband and father was the chief personage of an institution which was regarded as more than a social organism, inasmuch as the family in primitive Semitic society had a distinctively religious character and significance. It was through it that the religion of the household was practiced and perpetuated. The house-father, by virtue of being the family head, was priest of the household, and as such, responsible for the religious life of the family and the maintenance of the family altar. As priest he offered sacrifices to God as at first, before the centralization of worship, he did to Yahweh as the tribal or national Deity. We see this reflected in the stories of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and in the Book of Job. This goes far to explain such records as we have in <Gen 31:53; 32:9>, and the exceptional reverence that was paid the paternal sepulchers <1 Sam 20:6>. Abraham was regarded as being the father of a nation. It was customary; it would seem, to assign a "father" to every known tribe and nation <Gen 10>. So the family came to play an important and constructive part in Hebrew thought and life, forming the base upon which the social structure was built, merging gradually into the wider organism of the family, and vitally affecting at last the political and religious life of the nation itself.
The husband from the first had supreme authority over his wife, and children. In his own domain his rule was well-nigh absolute. The wife, , looked up to him as their lord <Gen 18:12>. He was chief, and to dishonor him was a crime to be punished by death <Exo 21:15,17>.
But, among the Hebrews the ideal husband trained his household in the way they should go religiously, as well as instructed them in the traditions of the family, the tribe, and the nation (<Gen 18:19; Exo 12:26; 13:8; Deut 6:7>, etc.). It was due to this, in part at least, that, in spite of the discords and evils incident to polygamy, the Hebrew household was nursery of virtue and piety to an unusual degree, and became a genuine anticipation of the ideal realized later in the Christian home (<1 Cor 7:2> <Eph 5:25; 1 Pet 3:7>).
