Disease, suffering, or sorrow. The KJV often used infirmity where modern translations have another term (e.g., weakness, diseases, sickness, menstruation, grief). Matthew saw in Jesus healings the fulfillment of the servant of the Lord who took our diseases (Matthew 8:17 ; Isaiah 53:4 ). Romans 15:1 calls upon the strong (in conscience) to bear with the weaknesses (KJV infirmity) of those without strength. See Disease, Treatment of.
