DISTRICT

Translates several different Hebrew and Greek words referring to a region, territory, or land. In the Old Testament district often connotes a part of a larger whole, either the provinces of an empire (1 Kings 20:14-19), regions within a country (2 Chronicles 11:23), or sections of a city (Nehemiah 3:9-18). In the New Testament district often refers to the area around a city (Matthew 15:21; Matthew 16:13; Mark 8:10). At Acts 16:21 the reference is to an administrative area (perhaps Matthew 2:22 also). At times district means no more than the general area (Matthew 9:26,Matthew 9:31).
