Settle

SETTLE (1) [ISBE]

SETTLE (1) - set'-'-l (`azarah): For this word in Ezek 43:14,17,20; 45:19, the American Standard Revised Version and the English Revised Version margin substitute more correctly "ledge."

See TEMPLE.

SETTLE (2) [ISBE]

SETTLE (2) - The Hebrew language has 8 words which are thus translated: yashabh, nachath, `amadh, shaqat, tabha`, natsabh, maqom, qapha'. Now the meaning is to settle down, to cause to occur (Ezek 36:11 the King James Version; 1 Ch 17:14); then it denotes fixedness (2 Ki 8:11; Ps 119:89; Prov 8:25); again it points to a condition of absolute quiescence, as the settlings on the lees (Jer 48:11); and in still another place it means packing solidly together (Ps 65:10). In the New Testament the words hedraios, themelioo, and tithemi, have been translated "settle." the Revised Version (British and American) in 1 Pet 5:10 has translated "establish," and the context unquestionably points to the idea of a fixed establishment in the faith. In Lk 21:14 the word translated "settle" evidently points to a fixed determination.
