slō : Chiefly for ארך , 'erekh , literally, "long," in the phrase "slow to anger" ( Nehemiah 9:17 , etc.). In Exodus 4:10 ; Luke 24:25 ; James 1:19 , for כּבד , kābhēdh ; βραδύς , bradús , both meaning "heavy," "sluggish," while Sirach 7:35 uses "be slow" for ὀκνέω , oknéō , "hesitate." In addition, the King James Version uses. "slow" for ἄργος , árgos , "inactive," in The Wisdom of Solomon 15:15, "slow to go" (the Revised Version (British and American) "helpless for walking"), and in Titus 1:12 , "slow bellies" (the Revised Version (British and American) "idle gluttons"). In Sirach 51:24, the King James Version has "be slow" for ὑστερέω , husteréō , "be lacking" (so the Revised Version (British and American)).
