WORDS OF CURRENT INTEREST

[The words in this issue are related to the Lesson-Sermon in the Christian Science Quarterly designated to be read in Christian Science churches on October 7, 1962.]

The counsel of the froward is carried headlong (Job 5:13)

The term rendered "froward" comes from a root meaning "to twist" and appears to describe those who are morally or mentally twisted or perverted; while the translation "tortuous" has also been offered. According to Biblical scholars, the literal significance of the word translated "carried headlong" is "hastened, i.e., precipitated before it is ripe, and so frustrated."
