LEST, con. That not for fear that.

Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. Genesis 3 .

The phrase may be thus explained. Ye shall not touch it that separated or dismissed, ye die. That here refers to the preceding command or sentence that being removed or not observed, the fact being not so, ye will die.

Sin no more, lest a worse thing come to thee. John 5 .

Sin no more that fact not taking place, a worse thing will happen to thee.
