Sometime

SOMETIME

sum'-tim:

In modern English means "occasionally," and is so used in Sirach 37:14 for eniote. Otherwise the word means "at some past time," and is the translation of pote. the Revised Version (British and American) changes to "aforetime" in The Wisdom of Solomon 5:3; 1 Peter 3:20; to "once" in Ephesians 2:13; 5:8; to "in time past" in Colossians 1:21; while in Colossians 3:7 the English Revised Version has "aforetime," the American Standard Revised Version "once." the King James Version does not distinguish between "sometime" and "sometimes."
