The meaning of Antiquity in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)
an-tik'-wi-ti (qadhmah, from qadham, "to precede in time," "to be old"): In Ezekiel 16:55; Ezekiel 36:11, rendered "former"; in Psalms 129:6, "before." Translated "antiquity" only in Isaiah 23:7 to indicate the primeval age of Tyre, which Strabo terms, "after Sidon," the oldest Phoenician city. Delitzsch renders it "whose origin is from the days of the olden time."
