The Hebrew word ‘luz’, translated “hazel” in the King James Bible (Genesis 30:37), is translated as “almond” in the Revised Version, New King James Version, New International Version and the New Revised Standard Version. Its Hebrew origin means ‘shaked’, signifying "wakeful, hastening," due to the earliness in which an almond tree puts forth its blossoms so early. In Jeremiah 1:11-12, God used it as an emblem of His word’s promptness to perform. Thus, my pattern for this cowl is entitled, “Almond Promise”, in recognition that God will never fail to keep His word and hasten to perform it.
