Today I read the following in a commentary on Exodus:
"When this understanding is combined with the source interweaving, the effect is a concatenation of images that, as with most liturgies, do not always sit easily with one another but provide a multifaceted look at the unfathomable divine deliverance."
(Terence E. Fretheim, Interpretation, p. 152)
I have never before heard of or used the word concatenation.
So I had to look it up and share my findings with you.
According to my pals Merriam and Webster:
Function: transitive verb
Inflected Form(s): -nat·ed; -nat·ing:
Definition: to link together in a series or chain
Crazy, eh? I challenge you all to integrate this word into your daily vocabularies!
