“Likeness” or “similarity.” 1. The Old Testament used it of things being like God. Three words are translated “similitude” in the Old Testament: demuth (2 Chronicles 4:3 ; Daniel 10:16 ), tabnith (Psalm 106:20 ; Psalm 144:12 ), and temunah (Numbers 12:8 ; Deuteronomy 4:12 ). 2 . In the New Testament it is used to translate homoios or its derivative three times (Romans 5:14 ; Hebrews 7:15 ; James 3:9 , “likeness” NAS).
