Hebrew - integrity

Hebrew - integrity

The state of being complete or undivided. Terms which occur in parallel with integrity (Hebrew tom, tomim) suggest its shades of meaning: righteousness (Psalms 7:8); uprightness (Psalms 25:21); without wavering (Psalms 26:1 NRSV, NAS, NIV); blameless (Psalms 101:2 NRSV, Hebrew uses tom twice in verse, otherwise translated integrity). Several Old Testament characters are designated persons of integrity: Noah (Genesis 6:9); Abraham (Genesis 17:1); Jacob (Genesis 25:27); Job (Job 1:1,Job 1:8; Job 2:3); and David (1 Kings 9:4). English translations frequently render the underlying Hebrew as perfect or blameless. Inclusion of Jacob is surprising since he is better known for his deceit (Genesis 27:5-27; Genesis 30:37-43; Genesis 33:13-17). English translators describe Jacob as a plain (KJV), peaceful (NAS), or quiet man (NRSV, NIV, REB).

In the New Testament, integrity occurs only at Titus 2:7 (NRSV, NIV, REB) in reference to teaching. The idea of singleness of heart or mind is frequent: Matthew 5:8; Matthew 6:22; James 1:7-8; James 4:8.
