Fringes Law: On the Entire Extremities of your Garments NOT THE CORNERS ONLY!!!
When understanding Scriptures, you need to study the original Hebrew Text to get a full understanding what the original authors were trying to covey.
KANAPH DOES NOT MEAN CORNERS;
COMMON MISUNDERSTOOD SCRIPTURES
IS THE EARTH SQUARE WITH 4 CORNERS?
And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners(Kanaph = כָּנָף ) of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
10 And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious.
11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that YHWH shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea.
12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners (Kanaph = כָּנָף ) of the earth.
“Perhaps no phrase in Scripture has been so controversial as the phrase, “the four corners of the earth.” The word translated “corners,” as in the phrase above, is the Hebrew word, KANAPH. Kanaph is translated in a variety of ways. However, it generally means extremity.”
“Some have tried to ridicule the Bible to say that it teaches that the earth is square. The Scripture makes it quite clear that the earth is a sphere (Isaiah 40:22).”
Some have tried to say there are four knobs, or peaks on a round earth. Regardless of the various ways kanaph is translated, it makes reference to EXTREMITIES.
“There are many ways in which God the Holy Spirit could have said corner. Any of the following Hebrew words could have been used:
- Pinoh is used in reference to the cornerstone.
- Paioh means “a geometric corner”
- Ziovyoh means “right angle” or “corner”
- Krnouth refers to a projecting corner.
- Paamouth – If the Lord wanted to convey the idea of a square, four-cornered earth, the Hebrew word paamouth could have been used. Paamouth means square.
Instead, the Holy Spirit selected the word kanaph, conveying the idea of extremity.
Instead, the Holy Spirit selected the word kanaph, conveying the idea of extremity.” http://www.christiananswers.net/q-eden/edn-c017.html
The earth does not have 4 corners. The authors of the bible did not believe that the earth was round.
Four Corners = North, South, East & West Extremities
ARE WE COMMANDED TO WEAR FRINGES ONLY ON 4 CORNERS or ALL THE WAY AROUND LIKE THE ANCIENTS DID?
 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters (Kanaph = כָּנָף ) of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself. – KING JAMES VERSION
Quarters is translated from the word Kanaph in Hebrew
If we read the text with the correct translation, we would understand that this verse isn’t saying for us to put fringes on 4 corners, but the extremities of our garments.
The Ancient Hebrews Wore their fringes all throughout the EXTREMITIES of their coverings or garment, not solely on the corners. I am not surprised because Kanaph doesn’t mean Corners, it means Borders or Extremities.
This entire post come from …
Kanaph = כָּנָף means Wings or Extremity not Corners as Translated
It’s ok, I have permission to use it. Its my website if anyone doesn’t yet know that.
