sev´ẽr : The three Hebrew words bādhal , pālāh and pāradh are thus translated. The idea conveyed is that of setting apart ( Leviticus 20:26 the King James Version) or of setting someone or something apart in a miraculous way ( Exodus 8:22; Exodus 9:4 the King James Version, the English Revised Version), or, again, of simple separation on one's own volition ( Judges 4:11 the King James Version, the English Revised Version). The Greek word ἀφορίζω , aphorı́zō (Matthew 13:49 ) stands for final judicial segregation.
