Insurrection

INSURRECTION

in-su-rek'-shun:

The word in Psalms 64:2 the King James Version is changed in the Revised Version (British and American) into "tumult"; in Ezra 4:19 (verb) it represents the Aramaic nesa', to "lift up oneself." In the New Testament stasis, is rendered "insurrection" in Mark 15:7 the King James Version (where compare the verb "made insurrection"), but in Luke 23:19,25 "sedition." the Revised Version (British and American) correctly renders "insurrection" throughout; also in Acts 24:5 "insurrections" for the King James Version "sedition."
