FALL - fol (vb.): The idea of falling is most frequently expressed in Hebrew by naphal, but also by many other words; in Greek by pipto, and its compounds. The uses of the word in Scripture are very varied. There is the literal falling by descent; the falling of the countenance in sorrow, shame, anger, etc. (Gen 4:5,6); the falling in battle (Gen 14:10; Nu 14:3, etc.); the falling into trouble, etc. (Prov 24:16,17); prostration in supplication and reverence (Gen 17:3; Nu 14:5, etc.); falling of the Spirit of Yahweh (Ezek 11:5; compare 3:24; 8:1); of apostasy (2 Thess 2:3; Heb 6:6; Jude 1:24), etc. the Revised Version (British and American) frequently changes "fall" of the King James Version into other words or phrases, as "stumble" (Lev 26:37; Ps 64:8; 2 Pet 1:10, etc.), "fade" (Isa 33:4), etc.; in Acts 27, the Revised Version (British and American) reads "be cast ashore on rocky ground" for "have fallen upon rocks" (Acts 27:29), "perish" for "fall" (Acts 27:34), "lighting upon" for "falling into" (Acts 27:41).
