Accursed, Cursed. The Greek word anathema, and the Hebrew word answering to it, signify things accursed, set apart or devoted to destruction. But the phrase is variously rendered: 1. Joshua 6:17, devoted to destruction. 2. 1 Corinthians 12:3, a deceiver. 3. Galatians 1:8-9, separated from the church.
