It Came From The Bible: Introduction

I’ve been wanting to post on this site like I used to, but I’m still just relying on my phone, so I can’t. But I had an idea recently that I’m finally doing. I’m always hearing about phrases and everyday sayings that originate from the Bible. So I’m starting a series on here based on that. The posts will be very short because I’m typing them on my phone, but it’ll be a way for me to continue posting new content on here. I hope you enjoy and are able to get something out of it.

“A little bird told me…”

When you want to let it be known that you know something, but don’t want to reveal how you found out, typically you will say, “A little bird told me…”. But did you know that the phrase is based on a verse in the Bible?

Ecclesiastes 10:20 (KJV)

Curse not the king, no not in thy thought; and curse not the rich in thy bedchamber: for a bird of the air shall carry the voice, and that which hath wings shall tell the matter.
