Reference: Blessedness


The substantive does not occur either in AV or RV of the OT, and has rightly been expunged from the RV of Ro 4:6,9; Ga 4:15, where alone it had place in the AV of the NT. 'Blessed' and 'happy' are found in both Testaments as a varying translation of the same Heb. or Gr. word; 'blessed' greatly pre-ponderating. The Biblical blessedness represents a conception of happiness in which the religious relation is taken into account, with its emotions and its issues. In the OT these issues sometimes lie rather in material prosperity
