Mollify

Mollify

To be softened; to be tender.

From the sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither MOLLIFIED with ointment. ( Isaiah 1:6 )

MOLLIFY

mol'-i-fi (from rakhakh, "to be soft"):

"To make soft," used in modern English only figuratively, as "His anger was mollified." English Versions of the Bible, however, uses the word literally in its two occurrences: Isaiah 1:6, "wounds, and bruises .... neither bound up, neither mollified with oil"; The Wisdom of Solomon 16:12, "mollifying plaister." Neither occurrence of the word is changed by the Revised Version (British and American).
