Easton's Bible Dictionary
To worship; to express reverence and homage. The forms of adoration among the Jews were putting off the shoes (Exodus 3:5
; Joshua 5:15
), and prostration (Genesis 17:3
; Psalm 95:6
; Isaiah 44:15,17,19
). To "kiss the Son" in Psalm 2:12
is to adore and worship him. (See Daniel 3:5,6
.) The word itself does not occur in Scripture.
