Colossians 4:7 ‘All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you,’ with the next verse, ‘that he might know your estate.’ In Acts 22:5 ‘all the estate of the elders’ (Gr. ‘all the presbytery’) means all the members of the Sanhedrin. The pl. occurs in the Pref. to AV [Note: Authorized Version.] , and in Ezekiel 36:11 ‘I will settle you after your old estates,’ i.e . according to your former position in life, The heading of Psalms 37:1-40 is ‘David persuadeth to patience and confidence in God, by the different estate of the godly and the wicked.’
