A word I love and never hear any more is behold. I associate this word with the King James Version of the Bible. That's probably because the NIV only has 6 passages with behold in the entire translation, while there are 113 beholds in Genesis alone in the KJV. So, what has happened to its usage? I am going to start using it this year.
Behold, a new post.
Behold, these pretzels shall make you thirsty.
Behold, the Cubs have lost again.
Behold, Matt Morris has given up another home run.
Behold, Kiihnworld is a good, Christian blog.
Behold is such a grand word. It really adds emphasis (and a little class) to what a person says. So, let's start using it again. But leave off the "lo and", please.
Behold, behold is going to make a comeback in 2005.
