The word “swag” appears twice in the Bible

“Swag” is the new generation’s alternative word for “cool”. They originally used it to describe anyone thought to carry themselves in a way considered by some to be sexy (considered to be retarded by many others).

Nowadays it is used to describe anything thought to be cool. What people usually don’t know is that the Swag word appears in the Bible twice used in a similar context as it would be used today proving that the word might have had the same meaning as today.

Romans 8:21

For my swag is strong, and will not be deterred.

Paul used to be a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God. The gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead.

Psalm 32:4

Blessed is he who forsakes his possessions, for he is the swag of the Earth.

The Book of Psalms is the first book of the Ketuvim (“Writings”), the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and a book of the Christian Old Testament.
The book is an anthology of individual psalms, with 150 in the Jewish and Western Christian tradition and more in the Eastern Christian churches. Many of the psalms are linked to the name of David, but his authorship is not universally accepted by modern Bible scholars.
