ENGRAVER. This Eng. word covers several Heb. terms whose exact meanings are difficult to distinguish, for they are often used as synonyms.

The finest engraving is often referred to in Scripture as that of signet rings; the archeologist confirms this verdict. The term פָּתַח, H7338, is also used as the general word for sculpturing of any kind in either wood or stone.

2 Corinthians 3:7 has the Gr. ἐντυπόω, G1963, when it refers to the engraving of the Ten Commandments on stone.
