Here is some Light on a few words in the King James (KJV) that might help your understanding as we study together.
The word "life" as translated in the KJV actually has several contrasting meanings. Example - You must lose your life to find life. How do I do that? The fist word translated life in the foregoing Scripture is the Greek word psuche and is #5590 in Strong's Hebrew/Greek concordance. It means carnal, literally soulish(ness). The second word translated life in the KJV is the Greek word zoe and is #2222 in Strong's. It's meaning is the Life that emanates from a close relationship, or union with God. John 17:3 states that eternal 2222 is knowing God and His Son, Jesus Christ, Whom He sent. Eternal life, #2222 depends on a close, intimate relationship with God. So, in order to know the Life that issues from God, we have to forsake our selfish life and set our affections on the things of God.
He came that you might have zoe (#2222) and that, more abundantly (than in the old covenant system of worship).
RE: the words translated son and child in the New Testament - there are several words that the KJV consistently translates as either child or son that are very enlightening when understood in their native contexts. The first one is neipios, a small infant, a babe. Dooky brithches and all! Then there is paidion. At least, potty-trained. Then teknon, a teenager or young adult, usually knows it all! Then, the one mostly associated with Jesus Christ as a son is huios: A mature son led by the spirit of God. This is what all creation is waiting in travail and groaning for, the mainifesting of the huois'.
Finally, there is pater, father. Paul said that though they had ten-thousand teachers, yet not may paters, not many fathers. Pater is a root word for parent, paternal.
Hope this helps you in better making sense out of a few words that might have been otherwise obscure to you. We will be adding additional study helps. Stay tuned!
Please take time to read Ezekiel 47:3-9 & 12 - below:
"And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the waters were to the ankles. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the waters were to the knees. Again, he measured a thousand, and brought me through; the waters were to the loins. Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not pass over; for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could not be passed over. And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river. Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees on the one side and on the other. Then he said unto me, These waters issue out toward the east country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed. And it shall come to pass, that everything that liveth, which moveth, withersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for they shall be healed; and everything shall live whither the river cometh. And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for food, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the Sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for food, and the leaf thereof for medicine.
We hope to give you water from the Throne of the Sanctuary for your ankles: your walk. Water to your loins that it may reproduce in you. And waters to swim in for the healing of the nations.
