QUIT . The adj. ‘quit’ (from Lat. quietus ) means ‘free from obligation,’ as Exodus 21:19 ‘Then shall he that smote him be quit.’ The vb. ‘to quit’ (from Lat. quietare ) is used in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] reflexively quit oneself, i.e. discharge one’s obligations, as 1 Corinthians 16:13 ‘Quit you like men.’
