APPOINT [ISBE]

APPOINT - a-point': This word is used for the expression of a large variety of ideas and the translation of almost as many words.

naqabh = "stipulate" (Gen 30:28). paqadh = "put into office" (Gen 41:34; Nu 1:50; Est 2:3); "select" (Jer 51:27); "put in charge" (Jer 49:19; 50:44); "assign" (Nu 4:27; Jer 15:3); "send" (Lev 26:16); "designate," "select" (Ex 21:13; Nu 4:19; 2 Sam 7:10; Isa 61:3); "single out" (1 Sam 8:11,12; Hos 1:11). nathan = "designate," "select" (Nu 35:6 the King James Version; Josh 20:2 the King James Version; Ezek 45:6); "set aside" (Ex 30:16). shith = "designate," "select" (Job 14:13; Isa 26:1). So also `amadh (1 Ch 15:16; Neh 7:3); so shalach (1 Ki 5:9); qarah (Nu 35:11). tsawah = "choose" (2 Sam 6:21). bachar = "select" (2 Sam 15:15 the King James Version). 'amar = "command" (1 Ki 5:6 the King James Version). tithemi = "designate," "select" (Mt 24:51; Lk 12:46). A careful reading of the above passages will bring to mind the doctrine that with reference to the world's work, God Himself calls men into office, selecting them from among the multitude and setting them aside for His special purposes; and that He calls to His assistance not only men but also events and forces of Nature (Lev 26:16).
