Not erroneous[edit]

¶ How exactly is this justified as a misspelling of ‘yeah’? These terms are interchangeable. --Pilcrow 02:38, 7 July 2011 (UTC)

Biblical sense[edit]

Webster 1913 says: "In the Scriptures, yea is used as a sign of certainty or stability. "All the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen." — 2 Cor. i. 20." Presumably this is a new separate sense of some kind. Equinox 20:18, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

adverb Same as indeed (what is more)[edit]

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil" (Psalm 23, King James Bible)
