MONUMENT. A memorial stone or tomb.

Memorial stone.


In 2 Kings 23:17 the tomb of a prophet is called a “monument” (so RSV; KJV “title”; Heb. צִיּ֣וּן). The one occurrence of “monuments” in KJV is for נְצוּרִ֖ים (Isa 65:4; RSV “secret places”). Christ calls the tombs of the prophets “monuments” (RSV, Matt 23:29; KJV “sepulchres”; Gr. τάφους).
