2 results for Elements
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) [wn]:
  1. violent or severe weather (viewed as caused by the action of the four elements); "they felt the full fury of the elements"
From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      In its primary sense, as denoting the first principles or
      constituents of things, it is used in 2 Pet. 3:10: "The elements
      shall be dissolved." In a secondary sense it denotes the first
      principles of any art or science. In this sense it is used in
      Gal. 4:3, 9; Col. 2:8, 20, where the expressions, "elements of
      the world," "week and beggarly elements," denote that state of
      religious knowledge existing among the Jews before the coming of
      Christ, the rudiments of religious teaching. They are "of the
      world," because they are made up of types which appeal to the
      senses. They are "weak," because insufficient; and "beggarly,"
      or "poor," because they are dry and barren, not being
      accompanied by an outpouring of spiritual gifts and graces, as
      the gospel is.
