Welcome to the Scripture thought of the day. Thank you so much for stopping by!
The word “nations” is translated from the Hebrew word gôy, and means nation, heathen, gentiles, or people.
The word “rage” is translated from the Hebrew word rāḡaš. It only occurs one time in the Hebrew Old Testament.
The word “vain” is translated from the Hebrew word rîq, and means vain, vanity, no purpose, or empty.
Biblically, vanity is never a good thing. Vanity usually stems from selfish ambitions.
