wdh is used elsewhere in Scripture to describe friends conversing (Jeremiah ; ), judges, heavenly powers and prophets consulting with God (Jeremiah ,22), counsel and friendly conversation (Psalm ), secret knowledge (Psalm ; Proverbs 25:9).
I once published a letter from a woman whose boyfriend had also gotten the short end of the stick—although perhaps not quite so drastically as yours—and in response I heard from several women who said they were initially very disappointed by their beloved's under-endowment and wondered whether it was a relationship killer.But they liked the guy so much that they stuck with it and said they eventually "adjusted" and came to find their sex lives fulfilling.When you can't feel anything during the act, that's a problem.I know that there are other options in the bedroom, but I get pleasure by doing it the old-fashioned way.Job's usage of the word is especially instructive and illuminating as his is probably the oldest Hebrew book of Scripture, perhaps dating back to 2000 , contemporary with Abraham and the age of nomadic tents and caravans.
In Job 15:8 it is paired in Hebrew parallelism with the word for wisdom, chokh'mh (Strong's #2451) and Eliphaz asks if Job was a party to God's secret plans: Job is rendered "all of my close friends abhor me" in the New King James Bible and the word translated as 'close friends' is again wdh.
The word wdh or wdh (Strong's #5475), usually rendered 'secret' in this passage is not done justice to unless the whole canvas is painted.
It is properly a 'cushion, couch or pillow', something on which one 'reclines'.
This was more than just imagery for Abraham when God visited his tent in Genesis 18.
If you remember God appeared with two others before Abraham who was sitting in the door or flap of his tent.
And his desire was that we might all be prophets (Numbers ,29), how much more should we want to be face to face friends of God.
