"Verity ... truth" (Ps. 111:7f.)—These terms are simply variant renderings of the same Hebrew word " 'emeth," which means primarily "firmness, certainty, security," and then, "faithfulness, faith, truth, honesty" (Feyerabend: Hebrew Dictionary, p. 21). The Septuagint and the Revised Version render "truth" in both verses; while Moffatt prefers "faithfulness."
"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom" (Ps. 111:10)—"Fear" is a literal translation of the Hebrew word "yire'ah," but it came to be employed in the sense of "awe, reverence, or piety" (cf. Brown, Driver, Briggs, Hebrew Lexicon, p. 432). Moffatt suggests the rendering: "The first thing in knowledge is reverence for the Eternal."
"There is none else" (I Kings 8:60; Isa. 46:9)—The Hebrew phrase thus translated in these verses, as in a number of other Old Testament passages, especially in the book of Isaiah, can be rendered either "There is none (i.e., no one) else" or "There is nothing else."
