Wailing Wall (WAIL·ing wall). The former name of the west wall of the Haram esh-Sharif in Jerusalem now simply referred to as the western wall.

wave-sheaf offering (WAVE·sheaf OF·fer·ing). The "wave-sheaf" offering consisted anciently of simply a single bunch of cut stalks of barley from the new crop ground into flower and by Herodian times a full omer of flower made from freshly cut ripe barley. Pentecost marked the beginning of the spring wheat harvest. In early Christian symbolism the wave-sheaf typified the resurrected Messiah Jesus of Nazareth, and the early spring wheat harvest the Church of God, that is, the qehal’el. Following the injunction of Leviticus 23:11, 15 the priests insisted on a literal discharge of the scriptural directive by offering the wave-sheaf on the Sunday occurring during the Days of Unleavened Bread. Prior to the CE 70 destruction of the Second Temple the Sadducees and the priests regularly fixed the date of Pentecost by counting beginning with the Sunday occurring during the festival rather than from the first High Sabbath. This always placed Pentecost on a Sunday and not on a fixed date.

worked (worked). Subjected to intentional human alteration.

worldview (WORLD·view). The worldview of a people is the way they perceive and interpret reality and events, including their perceptions of themselves, the natural order, and the supernatural, and how they relate to the world around them.
