Favour

Additional Links

FAVOUR . The Eng. word ‘favour’ is used in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] in the mod sense of ‘goodwill’; but in ‘well-favoured’ and ‘ill-favoured’ we see the older meaning of personal appearance. In Joshua 11:20 the word seems to be used in the old sense of ‘mercy’ ‘that he might destroy them, and they might have no favour’ as in Elyot, The Governour , ii. 298: ‘And they, which by that lawe were condemned, were put to dethe without any favour.’ For the theology of the word see Grace.
