Sense: work (product)
n. — a product produced or accomplished through the effort or activity or agency of a person or thing.
I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands.
The word work can have a variety of meanings. Two of the more common ones you might want to explore in the Bible are found in the following English sentences: “I went to work” and “It’s a work of art.” The “work” in today’s example verse is similar to that second English usage. Let’s say we only want to look at this usage of “work” in the Bible. It would be difficult to search for that because some of the same original-language words can refer to either kind of “work.” The Bible Sense Lexicon, however, splits those from one another. So if you want to look at the products of the work of people or of God, check out today’s sense from the Bible Sense Lexicon.
