Formed man of the dust of the Ground (Gen. 2:7) The Semitic word aphar refers to the material out of which the Lord God formed man. It appears frequently in the Old Testament with the meaning "dust" and a number of other times with related meanings. In II Samuel 16:13, dust is spoken of as cast in contempt at David by his enemy. In the Septuagint Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, the word corresponding to aphar is chaos, the word for dirt heaped or tossed upon the ground.
