(Strong's #1721 — Adjective — emphutos — em'-foo-tos )

"implanted," or "rooted" (from emphuo, "to implant"), is used in James 1:21 , RV, "implanted," for AV, "engrafted," of the Word of God, as the "rooted word," i.e., a word whose property it is to root itself like a seed in the heart. "The AV seems to identify it with emphuteuton, which however would be out of place here, since the word is sown, not grafted, in the heart" (Mayor).
