Two-edged swords

Two-edged swords (149:6) were made of bronze or iron and were filed on each side, so that the blade could more readily and deeply penetrate enemy armor. In the NT, the word of God is said to be “sharper than any two-edged sword” (Heb. 4:12) because of the way it exposes the deepest “thoughts and intentions” of a person’s heart.
