|Phrase from KJV (Help)
|fringes in the borders
||The word tzitzith properly denotes an ornament resembling a flower. From Num 15:39, we learn that these were emblematical of the commands of God. That there is any analogy between a fringe and a precept, it would be bold to assert; but when a thing is appointed to represent another, no matter how different, that first object becomes the legitimate representative or sign of the other. Deu 22:12; Mat 9:20; Mat 23:5; Luk 8:44|
