( κατέχω , katéchō ): Usually in the sense of "permit" (Anglo-Saxon, leatan ), but also in Old English with meaning of "hinder" (Anglo-Saxon, lettan ). This latter sense is found in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 the King James Version, "Only he who now letteth will let," where the Revised Version (British and American) has, "Only there is one that restraineth now."
