fād ( נבל , nābhēl ; μαραίνω , maraı́nō ): "To fade" is in the Old Testament the translation of nābhēl , "to droop or wither," figuratively , "to fade," or "pass way" (Psalm 18:45 ; Isaiah 1:30 ; Isaiah 24:4 ; Isaiah 28:1 , Isaiah 28:4 ; Isaiah 40:7 , Isaiah 40:8 ); once it is the translation of bālal "to well up," "to overflow"; perhaps from nābhal (Isaiah 64:6 , "We all do fade as a leaf"); in the New Testament of marainō , "to come to wither or to fade away" (James 1:11 , "So also shall the rich man fade away in his ways," the Revised Version (British and American) "in his goings"); compare The Wisdom of Solomon 28, "Let us crown ourselves with rosebuds, before they be withered" (marainō ); amarántinos (amaranth ), "unfading," occurs in 1 Peter 5:4 , "the crown of glory that fadeth not away," and amárantos (1 Peter 1:4 ), "an inheritance ... that fadeth not away"; compare The Wisdom of Solomon 6:12, "Wisdom is glorious (the Revised Version (British and American) "radiant"), and fadeth not away."

For "fade" (Ezekiel 47:12 ), the Revised Version (British and American) has "wither"; for "fall" "falleth" "falling" (Isaiah 34:4 ), "fade," "fadeth," "fading."
