INDITE . This Eng. verb is now somewhat old-fashioned. When it is used, it means to write. But formerly, and as found in AV [Note: Authorized Version.] , it meant to inspire or dictate to the writer. Thus St. Paul indited and Tertius wrote ( Romans 16:22 ). The word occurs in the Preface to the AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and in Psalms 45:1 ‘My heart is inditing a good matter.’ In the Douai version (though this word is not used) there is a note: ‘I have received by divine inspiration in my hart and cogitation a most high Mysterie.’
