sev´ẽr - al , sev´ẽr - al - i : The Hebrew words ḥophshūth and ḥophshı̄th , translated "several" in the King James Version, the English Revised Version, 2 Kings 15:5; 2 Chronicles 26:21 , are in both cases translated "separate" in the American Standard Revised Version, and indicate ceremonial uncleanness and consequent severance on account of leprosy. In the parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:15 ) and also in 1 Corinthians 12:11 the word ἴδιος , ı́dios , is translated "several," "severally." In both cases it points to the individuality of the recipients of the gift bestowed.
