Welcome to the new readers and thank you to the long term readers.

According to the scriptures, what is meant by sleep?

Let’s begin by reading the scriptures that refer to sleep as “slumber.”

Genesis 2:21  So the Lord God caused the man(Adam) to fall into a deep sleep, and while he was sleeping, he
took one of man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh.

Genesis 28:11  When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set.  Taking one of
the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.  He had a dream in which he saw a stairway
resting on the earth, …

Psalms 4:8  I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.

Proverbs 6:9  How long will you lie there, you sluggard?  When will you get up from your sleep?

Ecclesiastes 5:2  The sleep of a laborer is sweet, whether he eats little or much, but the abundance of a rich man
permits him no sleep.

As we have just read, many scriptures refer to sleep as “slumber.”

Next week we will read a second way in which the word sleep is used.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
