fē´b 'l -mı̄n´ded ( ὀλιγόψυχος , oligópsuchos ): Only in 1 Thessalonians 5:14 the King James Version, in the sense of "fainthearted," as in the Revised Version (British and American). In Septuagint it is used as the equivalent of kōshēl , the tottering or feeble-kneed in Isaiah 35:3 ; Isaiah 54:6 ; oligopsuchı́a occurs in Septuagint twice (Exodus 6:9 ; Psalm 54:7 ), for "anguish of spirit" and "trouble." The term refers to weakness of will and vacillation of purpose rather than to idiocy or morbid imbecility.
