"to part" as a verb is no longer in good use (except in a few special phrases, compare Ruth 1:17), but is obscure only in Proverbs 18:18, where the meaning is "break up their quarrel" (compare 2 Samuel 14:6). the Revised Version (British and American) has not changed the King James Version's usage, except (strangely) in 1 Samuel 30:24, where "share" is written. For the noun see PORTION.
