International Standard Bible EncyclopediaDARK SAYINGS
(Proverbs 1:6 Psalm 78:2; singular, Psalm 49:4, 5; chidhoth, singular chidhah, elsewhere rendered "riddle," "proverb"): In the heading to the canonical Book of Proverbs, the general term "proverbs" is made to include "a proverb mashal, and a figure (or, an interpretation, melitsah), the words (singular dabhar) of the wise, and their dark sayings (or, riddles)."
sa'-inz (pistos ho logos): "This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation" (the King James Version). These words form a striking formula which is found-with slight variations-only in the Pastoral Epistles, in 1 Timothy 1:15; 1 Timothy 3:1; 1 Timothy 4:9 2 Timothy 2:11; Titus 3:8. A similar expression occurs in Revelation 21:5 and Revelation 22:6 (the King James Version), "These sayings are faithful and true."
HARD SAYINGS; HARD SENTENCES
sa'-ingz;, sen'-ten-siz: In Daniel 5:12 the King James Version (Aramaic 'aqiahan), the Revised Version (British and American) "dark sentences," of enigmatic utterances which preternatural wisdom was needed to interpret; in John 6:60 (skleros. ho logos), of sayings (Christ's words at Capernaum about eating His flesh and drinking His blood) difficult for the natural mind to understand (compare 6:52).
