Even though; although.
Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; ALBEIT I have not spoken? Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD. ( Ezekiel 13:7 )
ol-be'-it (hina me; literally, "lest"):
Occurs in a paraphrase rather than as a translation of a clause in Philemon 1:19 the King James Version. The thought is: "although" or "albeit" (synonym of "although") "I might say," etc. This the Revised Version (British and American) translates with intense literalness: "that I say not".
