    Re: with a face

    "Crib" is slang for the place (house, flat, apartment) where someone lives.

    "If you don't have any place to stay while you're in town, you can crash at my crib."

    Thank. But, as regards "he who runs may read" the meaning I have found in the dictionary is " (said of easily intelligible expositionetc.;cf. Hab. 2:2) ". But I couldn't understand this explanation. Did this dictionary meaning match with the explanation given above.
