henry. 1777–1852, us statesman and orator; secretary of state (1825–29)
old english clæg “stiff, sticky earth; clay,” from west germanic -klaijaz (cf. old high german kliwa “bran,” german kleie, old frisian klai “clay,” old saxon klei, middle dutch clei, danish klæg “clay;” also old english clæman, old norse kleima, old high german kleiman “to cover with clay”), from pie root -glei- “clay” (cf. greek gloios “sticky matter;” latin gluten “glue;” old church slavonic glina “clay,” glenu “slime, mucus;” old irish glenim “i cleave, adhere”).
in scripture, the stuff from which the body of the first man was formed; hence “human body” (especially when dead). clay pigeon is from 1888. feet of clay “fundamental weakness” is from dan. ii:33.
a stiff, sticky sedimentary material that is soft and pliable when wet and consists mainly of various silicates of aluminum. clay particles are smaller than silt, having a diameter less than 0.0039 mm. clay is widely used to make bricks, pottery, and tiles.
this word is used of sediment found in pits or in streets (isa. 57:20; jer. 38:60), of dust mixed with spittle (john 9:6), and of potter’s clay (isa. 41:25; nah. 3:14; jer. 18:1-6; rom. 9:21). clay was used for sealing (job 38:14; jer. 32:14). our lord’s tomb may have been thus sealed (matt. 27:66). the practice of sealing doors with clay is still common in the east. clay was also in primitive times used for mortar (gen. 11:3). the “clay ground” in which the large vessels of the temple were cast (1 kings 7:46; 2 chr. 4:17) was a compact loam fitted for the purpose. the expression literally rendered is, “in the thickness of the ground,”, meaning, “in stiff ground” or in clay.
