Charles Buck Theological Dictionary
In a general sense, denotes immutability, or invariableness. When applied to the human mind, it is a steady adherence to those schemes and resolutions which have been maturely formed; the effect of which is, that a man never drops a good design out of fear, and is consistent with himself in all his words and actions. Constancy is more particularly required of us.
