Appease

APPEASE

a-pez':

"To make one at peace." Esau is appeased, i.e. placated, won over by means of presents (Genesis 32:20). One "slow to anger appeaseth strife," i.e. puts an end to it (Proverbs 15:18). the Revised Version (British and American) changes "appeased" of the King James Version in Acts 19:35 into "quieted" (Greek katastello, "put down," "suppress," "restrain," referring to a popular commotion).
