HALT . This Eng. word is used (1) literally, as a verb ‘to be lame, to limp,’ or as an adj. ‘lame.’ Cf. Tindale’s tr. [Note: translate or translation.] of Matthew 11:5 ‘The blynd se, the halt goo, the lepers are clensed.’ Or (2) figuratively ‘to stumble, fail,’ as Jeremiah 20:10 ‘All my familiars watched for my halting.’ From this comes the meaning (3) ‘to be undecided, waver,’ 1 Kings 18:21 ‘How long halt [lit. ‘limp,’ as on unequal legs] ye between two opinions?’ The Revisers have introduced (4) the mod. meaning ‘to stop,’ Isaiah 10:32 ‘This very day shall he halt at Nob.’
