Euche

An Introduction to Euche

Euche (yoo'-kay) (etymologically from Greek, also known as “Votum” in Latin, literally means “a vow,” or “prayer”) is a speech in form of a solemn vow or promise, either prompted by some demanding condition, or an outburst of emotion.

Classic Example
    Then Jacob vowed a vow saying:
  • “If God wil be with me, and will keep me in this journey which I go, and will give me bread to eat, and cloth to put on, so that I come again unto my father in safety. Then shall the Lord be my God, and this stone which I have set up as a pillar, shall be Gods house, and of all that thou shalt give me, will I give the tenth unto thee.” — (Gen. 28:20)
