Scriptural Dream Elements in Dreams

Biblical dream interpretation may or may not include scriptural elements which derive meaning directly from scripture and may hold meanings anywhere from clear to complex. The elements and their meanings may be well-known or surprising. Keep in mind that some of these elements may have universal meanings as well which may or may not fit into the Biblical implications. If the context of the element within the dream doesn’t clarify whether an element carries its scriptural or universal meaning, confirming prophesies or the discernment may be needed. This scriptural element dictionary includes words from passages within the Bible and Torah.

Below are a few samples of scriptural elements which begin with the letter “B”.
