Most Common Bible Words

No comments
In the Pastor's message in the March newsletter from my church, Dr. Tom Davis noted that "Love is mentioned 714 times in the Bible, yet “giving” or “possessions” is mentioned 2,172 times."

Naturally, my curiosity led me to the most commonly used words in the Bible (King James edition).



I'm not sure what source Dr. Tom used, but according to his calculations, "Love" would be about the 160th most used word and "possessions" would be in the top 60. I think he meant these to be expressions, not taken literally as words.
