ôl -too -geth´ẽr : Representing five Hebrew and three Greek originals, which variously signify (1) "together"; i.e. all, e.g. 'all men, high and low, weighed together in God's balance are lighter than vanity' ( Psalm 62:9 ); so also Psalm 53:3 ; Jeremiah 10:8 . (2) "all": so the Revised Version (British and American), Isaiah 10:8 : "Are not my princes all of them kings?" (3) " with one accord have broken the yoke"; so the Revised Version (British and American), Jeremiah 5:5 . (4) "completely," "entirely," "fully": "so as not to destroy him altogether" (2 Chronicles 12:12 ; compare Genesis 18:21 ; Exodus 11:1 ; Psalm 39:5 ; Jeremiah 30:11 the King James Version; compare the Revised Version (British and American)). (5) "wholly": "altogether born in sins," John 9:34 . (6) In 1 Corinthians 5:10 the Revised Version (British and American) rendered "at all"; 1 Corinthians 9:10 "assuredly." (7) A passage of classic difficulty to translators is Acts 26:29 , where "altogether" in the Revised Version (British and American) is rendered "with much," Greek en megálō (en pollō̇ ). See ALMOST . Many of the instances where "altogether" occurs in the King James Version become "together" in the Revised Version (British and American). Used as an adjective in Psalm 39:5 ("altogether vanity").
