A Womb of Compassion? Col. 3.12

Here is an interesting take on splanckna. Most rendering of this word has “bowels,” which seems a bit odd. Womb, however, makes more sense and is in the same region. In the O.T. one of the names of God derives from being “many breasted” implying never-ending sustenance. God made females perfect in His wisdom, just as He did males. What a wonderfully wise and appropriate design!
