Bible Facts: Here Is The Book And Verse With The Longest Word In The Bible

The bible is a very interesting book with so many facts you ought to know. The number of words the bible contains, depending on the version you are reading and the last word in the bible are just a few facts among others that you can learn for general knowledge.

Without much ado, what is the longest word in the bible? Well, the answer is in the book of Isaiah 8:1. It reads; The Lord said, “Take a big piece of writing material and write on it in large letters concerning Mahershalalhashbaz”. This word reappears in Isaiah 8:3 in a different context.

This name with 18 characters was given to one of prophet Isaiah's sons through a prophecy by God about the looming destruction of Syria and Israel. In English, this name simply means; speed the spoil and hasten the plunder.
