RAIL; RAILING; RAILER, - ral, ral'-ing, ral'-er: To "rail" on (in modern usage "against") anyone is to use insolent or reproachful language toward one. It occurs in the Old Testament as the translation of charaph (2 Ch 32:17, "letters to rail on Yahweh"), and of `it (1 Sam 25:14, of Nabal, "he railed at them," the English Revised Version "flew upon them," margin "railed on"). In the New Testament "to rail" is the translation of blasphemeo (Mk 15:29; Lk 23:39; "railing," 1 Tim 6:4; 2 Pet 2:11; Jude 1:9). The word loidoria, rendered railing" in 1 Pet 3:9 the King James Version, is in the Revised Version (British and American) "reviling," and loidoros, "railor," in 1 Cor 5:11 is in the Revised Version (British and American) "reviler."
