SON (Heb. bēn, Gr. huios). A word with a variety of meanings in the Bible. Genetically the Hebrew word expresses any human offspring regardless of sex (Gen.3.16). In genealogical records the word “son” is often a general term expressing descendants (Dan.5.22). Many times, of course, the word means a person, usually a male, who was the direct child of a given father (Gen.9.19; Gen.16.15).
