ABUSE

a-buz':

"To dishonor," "to make mock of," "to insult," etc.

  1. Translated in the Old Testament from `alal, "to do harm," "to defile" (Judges 19:25), "to make mock of" (1 Samuel 31:4).

  2. Translated in the New Testament from arsenokoites, literally, "one who lies with a male," "a sodomite" (1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; the King James Version "for them that defile themselves with mankind").

  3. In the King James Version 1 Corinthians 7:31 "as not abusing it," from katachraomai, "to abuse," i.e. misuse; the Revised Version (British and American) "using it to the full," also 1 Corinthians 9:18.
