    Exclamation rapture and flesh

    What's the difference between flesh and meat?
    I'd like to know an adjective from this word: rapture!?

    can I say: I've always had a rapture when I listen to George.

    Re: rapture and flesh

    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".

    Cannibals would eat human flesh as meat.

    Re: rapture and flesh

    1. rupture = a)the state of being transported by a lofty emotion, exstasy
    b)the transportation of a person from one place to another,
    especially to heaven
    c)cheerfulness, great delight, elation, euphoria, well-being
    d)disjoint, separated, or disconnected
    e)a breach of harmonious, or peaceful relations
    2.can I say: I've always had a rapture when I listen to George.
    Yes, you can, when you listen in to An American in Paris or Rhapsody in Blue composed by George Gershwin.
    You can also say "listening to sweet music in a perfect rupture (
    Charles Dickens) syn. ecstasy
    3. adjective for rupture - ruptureable
    4.When you want discuss about flesh and meat you have to read many books in advance, and before all the Bible.
    1 Thessalonian chapter 4 (Then we which are alive (and) remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air.
    rupture = spiritual interpretation of how people can be "caught up" or
    "translated" in to the "invisible" spiritual realm of God.
    flesh = the soft substance of a human or other animal body,
    consisting of muscle and fat
    flesh = the body, esp. as distinguished from the spirit or soul
    flesh = the physical or animal nature of humankind as distinguished from its moral or spiritual nature - the needs of the flesh
    Ecclessiaste 17:6-7 Or even the silver cord be loosed,
    the flesh body die,
    or the golden bowl be broken...

    Then shall the dust,
    your flesh body, return to the earth,
    and the Spirit will return unto God who gave it.

    3. adjective for r
    upture - ruptureable Where did you find this word? It does not appear in the dictionaries. Rapturous =
    adjective characterized by, feeling or expressing great pleasure or enthusiasm.


    4.When you want discuss about flesh and meat you have to read many books in advance, and before all the Bible. I would not cite the Bible as evidence of the meaning and use of a word in the 21st century.
