Rain Words: Geshem and Matar
These two Hebrew words “geshem” and “matar” describe rain.
Ezekiel 34:26 says, “And I will make them and the places round about My hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower (Gimmel~Shin~Mem, geshem) to come down in his season; there shall be showers (Gimmel~Shin~Mem, geshem) of “blessing.”
Genesis 19:24 says, “Then God “rained” (Mem~Tet~Resh, matar, verb to rain, send hail) upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah, brimstone and fire from God out of heaven.”
Does the word “geshem” for rain signify abundant “blessing”?
Does “matar” for rain signify judgment?
