" Lia-fail" Code Searches
“Lia-fail” is also known as “the Stone of Scone”, “Jacob’s Pillow Stone”, “Jacob’s Pillar Stone”, and the “Coronation Stone”.
It is thought by many to be the stone that Jacob used for a pillow when camping at Luz where Jacob had his first encounter with the LORD:
“ And Jacob went out from Beersheba, and went toward Haran. And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep. And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the Lord stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed; And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of. And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the Lord is in this place; and I knew it not .And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven. And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Bethel: but the name of that city was called Luz at the first. And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the Lord be my God: And this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.” Genesis 28.10-22
Bethel means “House of God”.
It is also thought by some to be “the rock” which Moses struck with his staff in Exodus 17.4-7 to bring forth water as he was commanded and “the rock” which he was commanded by the LORD to speak to, but he struck instead Exodus 20.6-12, angering the LORD who banned him from entering the Promised Land.
The Israelite custom of anointing their kings on or by a pillar is alluded to in 2 Kings 11.12-14, when Joash was anointed King of Judah “standing by the pillar, as the custom was”.
Most of the legends have the stone being removed from Jerusalem by Jeremiah and his scribe Baruch just before the Babylonian invasion. The Bible records them going to Egypt with King Zedekiah’s daughters (Jeremiah 41.11-18) but doesn’t mention the stone. The stone ended up in Ireland, where the princesses were married to Irish royalty and was later transferred to Scotland, and eventually captured and taken to England about 700 years ago where it has been used to crown every king and queen since.

The term Lia-fail occurs the most often (14 times) in Jeremiah which isn’t very remarkable since it has the most letters in the Old Testament but the next closest book (in letter count) is Psalms which is just slightly shorter than Jeremiah and the term is only found 3 times.
The occurrence of Lia-fail the least likely to appear by random chance is in the other book written by Jeremiah, Lamentations and the odds are apx. 500,000 to 1 that it occurred by random chance.
