ol-be'-it (hina me; literally, "lest"):

Occurs in a paraphrase rather than as a translation of a clause in Philemon 1:19 the King James Version. The thought is: "although" or "albeit" (synonym of "although") "I might say," etc. This the Revised Version (British and American) translates with intense literalness: "that I say not".
