Defame; Defaming

Resource Toolbox

dē̇ -fām ´, dē̇ -fām´ing : These words occur but twice in the King James Version, and are translations of דּבּה , dibbāh , "slander," from dābhath , "to slander," or spread an evil report, and βλασφημέω , blasphēméō , "to speak injuriously" of anyone (Jeremiah 20:10 ; 1 Corinthians 4:13 ). "To defame" differs from "to revile" in that the former refers to public slander, the latter to personal abuse.
