Words, words, words

So somebody said to me on Sunday that they'd never realised the meaning of "Hosanna" until I explained it last week, and that it had given them a new insight into the opposition to Jesus.

A long time ago, someone explained to me that "so be it" (or whatever) is a pretty weak translation of "Amen", not conveying the solidity of the sentiment.

Our understanding of "shalom" is sometimes shakier than we think.

What other words do we not understand? (Apart, of course from holiness lol)
