: First off, your site is informative and incredible interesting and has helped me a great deal in understanding colloquialisms used on a daily basis by individuals with no gasp as to their meaning.

: However, I was looking for the origin/meaning of two phrases which I did not see on your site:
:
: - wax ecstatic
: - Jesus wept
:
: Please considered adding them, as I would be most interesting in reading about their origins.

"Jesus wept." is from the Bible, John 11. He cried because his friend died.
