(בּרכה , berākhāh ; εὐλογία , eulogı́a ): Sometimes means the form of words used in invoking the bestowal of good, as in Deuteronomy 33:1 ; Joshua 8:34 ; and James 3:10 . Sometimes it means the good or the benefit itself which has been conferred, as in Genesis 27:36 , "Hast thou not reserved a blessing for me?" and Proverbs 10:22 , "The blessing of Yahweh, it maketh rich."
