sen´siz : The translation of αἰσθητήριον , aisthētḗrion ( Hebrews 5:14 , "those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil"). The word means, primarily, the seat of the senses, the region of feeling; in the Septuagint of Jeremiah 4:19 , it represents the Hebrew ḳı̄r , "the walls of the heart" (see the Revised Version (British and American)), and is used to denote the internal sense or faculty of perceiving and judging, which in Hebrews 5:14 is regarded as becoming perfected by use or exercise (compare Ephesians 4:12 f; 1 Timothy 4:7; 2 Peter 3:18 ).

In 2 Esdras 10:36 we have "Or is my sense deceived, or my soul in a dream?" Latin sensus , here "mind" rather than "sense."
