Cornerstone, Corner Stone

See also Cornerstone



2. זָוִיֹּ֑ת (Ps 144:12) entreats Jahweh for daughters like cornerstones, i.e., providing virtue to God’s people as faithful members among the people of God.

Pinnâh is treated by both Jews and Christians as Messianic. Christ is the foundation of the faith of the believer, through which He becomes man’s Deliverer. On the contrary, the lack of faith guarantees that the unbeliever will be separated from God forever.
