UNTOWARD . ‘Untoward’ is ‘not toward,’ i.e. not well disposed. It occurs in Acts 2:40 ‘this untoward generation.’ Cf. ‘untoward to all good … forward to evil’ Judgement of the Synode at Dort , p. 32. The subst. ‘untowardness’ occurs in the heading of Isaiah 28:1-29 , Hosea 6:1-11 . The word is still occasionally used, but in the more modern sense of ‘unfortunate’ as ‘an untoward accident.’
