In general "to throw," with various degrees of violence; usually, with force, but not so necessarily, as e.g. in "cast a net," "cast lots." When applied to molten metal, as in English, first, "to let run. into molds," with reference to their descent by gravity, and, then, "to form," as in Exodus 25:12 , etc. Usually in the New Testament for βάλλω , bállō , but not always. Thus, in Luke 1:29 "cast in her mind" means "considered" ( διελογίζετο , dielogı́zeto ); "cast reproach" for Greek ὠνείδιζον , ōneı́dizon , "reproached" (Matthew 27:44 ); "casting down" for καθαιρέω , kathairéō , "demolishing" (2 Corinthians 10:4 ); "casting all anxiety upon" (1 Peter 5:7 ), a still stronger term, as in Luke 17:2 the King James Version; Acts 27:19 . As a fundamental Greek word, it is compounded with many prepositions, "about," "away," "down," "forth," "in," "into," "off," "out," "up," "upon." "Cast down" in 2 Corinthians 4:9 the King James Version is used in a military sense of one prostrated, but not killed in battle. Compare Psalm 42:5 with the Revised Version, margin. "Castaway" of the King James Version in 1 Corinthians 9:27 , is in the Revised Version (British and American) "rejected" (compare Hebrews 6:8 ), ἀδόκιμος , adókimos , i.e. what the application of a test shows to be counterfeit, or unfit; translated "reprobate" in Romans 1:28; 2 Corinthians 13:5 , 2 Corinthians 13:6 , 2 Corinthians 13:7 , etc.
