Settle

Settle

Ledge; pedestal block.

And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about shall be a span: and this shall be the higher place of the altar. And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower SETTLE shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser SETTLE even to the greater SETTLE shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit. ( Ezekiel 43:13-14 )

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 (Ezekiel 36:11 the King James Version; 1 Chronicles 17:14); then it denotes fixedness (2 Kings 8:11; Psalms 119:89; Proverbs 8:25); again it points to a condition of absolute quiescence, as the settlings on the lees (Jeremiah 48:11); and in still another place it means packing solidly together (Psalms 65:10). In the New Testament the words hedraios, themelioo, and tithemi, have been translated "settle." the Revised Version (British and American) in 1 Peter 5:10 has translated "establish," and the context unquestionably points to the idea of a fixed establishment in the faith. In Luke 21:14 the word translated "settle" evidently points to a fixed determination.
