Glossary entries do not maintain the subtleties of context, metaphor and symbolism
offered by reading the Song of God from start to finish. Neither does this Glossary
preserve the incremental ‘line upon line’ aspect of revelation presented by the scriptures.
Thus, browsing this material before reading the Song of God may detract somewhat
from the student’s experience.
Each Glossary entry contains the following:
Pronunciation:a phonetic pronunciation of the name or term is provided unless the
pronunciation is obvious. See Pronunciation Guide >>
Occurrences:the number of times the entry is mentioned directly in scripture. This
number does not include indirect references to the entry, nor does it include occurrences
found in non-scriptural portions of the Song of God (ie: Personal Testimony, Commentary,
Synopsis), unless specified otherwise.
First Reference:the entry’s first direct reference in the Song of God, followed
by the corresponding verse.
See:lists related entries
Summary:provides information pertaining to the entry.
Azrael’s Commentary:abbreviated as AZC when sited, this material was written by
Azrael and originally published in the Commentary section of the Song of God (2008,
2015). Not all Glossary entries contain material from Azrael’s Commentary. Oftentimes,
only pertinent passages from Azrael’s Commentary are quoted in an entry. An ellipsis
‘[...]’ is used to indicate the exclusion of passages from the original Commentary
Notes/References: includes scriptural references significant to the entry, and will
at times include interpretations, questions, and considerations.
