“Just as iron sharpens iron, a person sharpens the character of his friend.”

The Hebrew word for ‘iron’ is ברזל or barzel and means ‘iron-ore’ or ‘stone containing iron.’ Iron is rare in the earth’s crust, coming on through meteorites.

The Hebrew word for ‘sharpens’ is חדד or chadad and means ‘to cause to improve,’ ‘to sharpen as with a cutting tool.’ It also means ‘clear understanding,’ and ‘wise perception.’ It also means ‘to have an edge that is able to pierce.’

The Hebrew word for ‘character’ is פנים or panim and means ‘faces.’ It is also translated into ‘countenance.’

The Hebrew word for ‘friend’ is רע or rea and means ‘companion,’ or ‘person one spends time with.’ Another more common Hebrew word for ‘friend’ is חבר or chavar and means ‘a willingly joined together’ relationship.

“Just as the rare element of iron has an edge that is able to pierce iron, is the exceptional person who willingly pierces the countenance of his friend to improve, have clear understanding, and wise perception.”
