CONSUME, v.t. L., to take. So in English we say, it takes up time, that is, it consumes time.

2. To destroy by dissipating or by use; to expend; to waste; to squander; as, to consume an estate.

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. James 4.

3. To spend; to cause to pass away, as time; as, to consume the day in idleness.

Their days did he consume in vanity. Psalm 78.

4. To cause to disappear; to waste slowly.

My flesh is consumed away. Job 38.

5. To destroy; to bring to utter ruin; to exterminate.

Let me alone-- that I may consume them. Exodus 32.

CONSUME, v.i. To waste away slowly; to be exhausted.

Their flesh--their eyes--their tongue shall consume away. Zechariah 14.

The wicked shall perish--they shall consume. Psalm 37.
