KJV Dictionary / C / consider

KJV Dictionary Definition: consider

consider

CONSIDER, v.t. L., to consider, to view attentively, to sit by; to sit. See Sit. The literal sense is, to sit by or close, or to set the mind or the eye to; hence, to view or examine with attention.

1. To fix the mind on, with a view to a careful examination; to think on with care; to ponder; to study; to meditate on.

Know, therefore, this day, and consider it in thy heart. Deuteronomy 4.

Hast thou considered my servant Job? Job 1.

Consider the lilies of the field how they grow. Matthew 6.

2. To view attentively; to observe and examine.

The priest shall consider the leprosy. Leviticus 13.

3. To attend to; to relieve.

Blessed is he that considereth the poor. Psalm 41.

4. To have regard to; to respect.

Let us consider one another, to provoke to love, and to good words. Hebrews 10.

5. To take into view in examination, or into account in estimates.

In adjusting accounts, services, time, and expense ought to be considered.

6. In the imperative, consider is equivalent to, think with care, attend, examine the subject with a view to truth or the consequences of a measure. So we use see, observe, think, attend.

7. To requite; to reward; particularly for gratuitous services.

CONSIDER, v.i.

1. To think seriously, maturely or carefully; to reflect.

None considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge or understanding. Isaiah 44.

In the day of adversity consider. Ecclesiastes 7.

2. To deliberate; to turn in the mind; as in the case of a single person; to deliberate or consult, as numbers; sometimes followed by of; as, I will consider your case, or of your case.

The apostles and elders come together to consider of this matter. Acts 15.

3. To doubt; to hesitate.

considerative

CONSIDERATIVE, a. Taking into consideration. Little used.

considered

CONSIDERED, pp. Thought of with care; pondered; viewed attentively; deliberated on; examined.

considering

CONSIDERING, ppr. Fixing the mind on; meditating on; pondering; viewing with care and attention; deliberating on.

Note. We have a peculiar use of this word, which may be a corruption for considered, or which may be a deviation from analogy by an insensible change in the structure of the phrase. It is not possible for us to act otherwise, considering the weakness of our nature. As a participle, this word must here refer to us, or the sentence cannot be resolved by any rule of English syntax. It should be correct to say, It is not possible for us to act otherwise, the weakness of our nature being considered; or We, considering the weakness of our nature, cannot act otherwise. But the latter phrase is better grammar, than it is sense. We use other participles in like manner; as, Allowing for tare, the weight could not be more than a hundred pounds. These and similar phrases are anomalous. But considering is no more a kind of conjunction, in such phrases, than it is a noun.

CONSIDERING, n. The act of deliberating, or carefully attending to; hesitation; as, many mazed considerings.

consideringly

CONSIDERINGLY, adv. With consideration or deliberation. Whole Duty of Man.
