Aging—Note: The topical nature of this study makes it difficult to pinpoint a specific word count.
Variations: aged, ancient, ancients, old, elder, elders, eldest; Note: These words are frequently used to express aging but the certainty of the intended usage can only be ascertained by considering the surrounding context.
Interesting fact: Time can be viewed like a cup continuously being filled to the brim. This is why the Bible ties events and life spans to time. For example, “when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son” (Galatians 4:4). As time pertains to a man’s days upon the earth, the Bible often identifies one’s end of life as being “full of days” (Genesis 35:29; 1 Chronicles 23:1; 1 Chronicles 29:28; 2 Chronicles 24:15; Job 42:17; Jeremiah 6:11).
Bible study tip: The same age can be stated in multiple ways in scripture. For example, “Cainan lived seventy years” (Genesis 5:12). In another passage, “The days of our years” are said to be “threescore years and ten” (Psalm 90:10). The word score indicates a measure of twenty years so threescore equals sixty years plus ten more equals seventy total years.
