Flesh and meat mean the same, though they have different origins. They both come from Old English:
Meat = O.E. mete "food, item of food" (contrasted with drink), from P.Gmc. *matiz. Narrower sense of "flesh used as food" is first found c.1300.;
Flesh = O.E. flęsc "flesh, meat," also "near kindred" (a sense now obsolete except in phrase flesh and blood), common W. and N.Gmc. (cf. O.Fris. flesk, M.L.G. vlees, Ger. Fleisch "flesh," O.N. flesk "pork, bacon"), of unknown origin, perhaps from P.Gmc. *flaiskoz-.
Adjective for "raptured" = enraptured >> " I was enraptured by his singing".
