Sever

SEVER

sev'-er:

The three Hebrew words badhal, palah and paradh are thus translated. The idea conveyed is that of setting apart (Leviticus 20:26 the King James Version) or of setting someone or something apart in a miraculous way (Exodus 8:22; 9:4 the King James Version, the English Revised Version), or, again, of simple separation on one's own volition (Judges 4:11 the King James Version, the English Revised Version). The Greek word aphorizo (Matthew 13:49) stands for final judicial segregation.
