[ Ja'Son's NOTE: The New World Translation renders the Greek word di·a·the´ke as "covenant" in these 33 places. ]

"

Although the obvious meaning of di·a·the´ke in the Christian Greek Scriptures is in the ancient Hebrew sense of "covenant," many modern translators render di·a·the´ke in Heb 9:16, 17 as "will" or "testament." They thus indicate that the writer of the book of Hebrews intended a change of meaning for this Greek word.

"

Romans 9:33

"

  • 33 as it is written: "Look! I am laying in Zion a stone of stumbling and a rock-mass of offense, but he that rests his faith on it will not come to disappointment."

"

From the Jehovah's Witnesses own bible. 33 at the core of biblical reality.
