(Heb. kob'a), a cap for the defence of the head (1Sa 17:5,38). In the New Testament the Greek equivalent is used (Eph 6:17; 1Th 5:8). (See ARMS.)

Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4030 Greek: perikephalaia


from peri, "around," and kephale, "a head," is used figuratively in Eph 6:17, with reference to salvation, and 1Th 5:8, where it is described as "the hope of salvation." The head is not to be regarded here as standing for the seat of the intellect; the word is not so used elsewhere in Scripture. In Eph 6:17 salvation is a present experience of the Lord's deliverance of believers as those who are engaged in spiritual conflict; in 1Th 5:8, the hope is that of the Lord's return, which encourages the believer to resist the spirit of the age in which he lives.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
