    to worship; to express reverence and homage. The forms of
    adoration among the Jews were putting off the shoes (Ex. 3:5;
    Josh. 5:15), and prostration (Gen. 17:3; Ps. 95:6; Isa. 44:15,
    17, 19; 46:6). To "kiss the Son" in Ps. 2:12 is to adore and
    worship him. (See Dan. 3:5, 6.) The word itself does not occur
    in Scripture.
