9 Idioms You Didn’t Know Came From the BibleMichael Harrell
There are phrases we use everyday knowing what they mean, but not knowing how to explain what they mean, or even where they came from. Have you ever had to “learn the ropes?” Most idioms can’t really be translated to different languages and cultures – but in the case of the Bible, it’s a text that spans Hebrew, Greek and almost every modern language. Here are ten common phrases that came from Scripture!
No Rest for the Wicked
But the wicked are like the tossing sea;
for it cannot be quiet,
and its waters toss up mire and dirt.
There is no rest,” says my God, “for the wicked.”
— Isaiah 57:20-21
