The translation in Ezra 4:15,19 for 'eshtaddur, "struggling," "revolt"; in 2 Esdras 15:16 for inconstabilitio, "instability" with "be seditious" for stasiazo, "rise in rebellion" in 2 Macc 14:6. In addition, the King James Version has "sedition" for stasis, "standing up," "revolt" (the Revised Version (British and American) "insurrection") in Luke 23:19,25; Acts 24:5, with (dichostasia), "a standing asunder" (the Revised Version (British and American) "division") in Galatians 5:20. As "sedition" does not include open violence against a government, the word should not have been used in any of the above cases.
