ad -vûr´si -ti : In the Revised Version (British and American) exclusively an Old Testament term, expressing the various forms of distress and evil conveyed by four Hebrew words: צלע , cela‛ , "a halting" or "fall"; צרה , cārāh , "straits" "distress," "affliction"; צר , car , "straitness," "affliction"; רע , ra ), "bad," "evil," "harmful." These words cover the whole range of misfortunes caused by enemies, poverty, sorrow and trouble. "Adversity," which occurs once in the King James Version in New Testament (Hebrews 13:3 : κακουχούμενος , kakouchoúmenos , "ill-treated") is displaced in the Revised Version (British and American) by the literal rendering which illustrates or interprets a common phase of adversity.
