chı̄d : Only in the Old Testament, translating Hebrew ריב , rı̄bh , a word which is more frequently rendered "strive." Since in Genesis 31:36; Judges 8:1; Psalm 103:9 , the strife is one of words, it means in these passages, "scold," or "sharply censure," and is applied either to mutinous protests and reproaches of inferiors to a superior, or, as in the last of these passages, to rebukes administered by a superior to inferiors.
