The word appears both as a substantive and as a verb in the Old Testament, having a variety of meanings:
"Behold, I am according to thy wish in God's stead." Elihu here refers to Job's expressed desire for an umpire (9:33), and one who would maintain his right with God (16:21).
"They have more than heart could wish";
Arthur Walwyn Evans
