dē̇ -bāt ´: This word is used only once in the Revised Version (British and American) (Proverbs 25:9 ). It evidently refers to the settling of a difficulty with a neighbor, and anticipates Matthew 18:15 . It argues for and shows the advantage of private, peaceable settlement of difficulties. Compare Ecclesiasticus 28:9, and see MAKEBATES .
