rek'-ord, rek'-ord:

(1) The English word, where it occurs in the Old Testament and the New Testament in the sense of testimony, is translated in the Revised Version (British and American) "witness" (Deuteronomy 30:19; 31:28; John 1:19,32; 8:13,14; Romans 10:2, etc.). See WITNESS. But in Job 16:19 for the King James Version "my record," the Revised Version (British and American) has "he that voucheth for me."

(2) In Ezra 4:15; 6:2 (dokhran, dikhron), and Esther 6:1 (zikkaron), the word denotes Persian state chronicles; compare 1 Macc 14:23; 2 Macc 2:1.
