Eytmology of the Word "Steeple"

By Gary Amirault


According to the Dictionary of Word Origins by John Ayto, the origin of the English word "steeple" comes from a German word "staup" meaning a high place or high tower. I am often amazed when tracing English word origins that the roots of many modern church words seem to bring back remembrances of Scriptures in the Bible like the following:

Woe, woe to you! says the Lord God-that you also built for yourself a shrine, and made a high place for yourself in every street. You built your high places at the head of every road, and made your beauty to be abhorred. You offered yourself to everyone who passed by, and multiplied your acts of harlotry! Ezekiel 16:24,25

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph. 6:12
