rḗ - wôrd ´: In modern English (except when influenced by the Biblical forms) a "reward" is something given in recognition of a good act. In English Versions of the Bible, however, "reward" is used quite generally for anything given, and the term covers the recompense of evil ( Psalm 91:8 ), wages (1 Timothy 5:18 the King James Version), bribes ( Micah 7:3 ), and gifts (Jeremiah 40:5 the King James Version). The Revised Version (British and American) has specialized the meaning in a number of cases ( Psalm 94:2 ; Ezekiel 16:34 ; Jeremiah 40:5 , etc.), but not systematically.
