KJV Dictionary Definition: disannul


DISANNUL, v.t. dis and annul. In this instance, the prefix dis is improperly used, and of no effect. But its use is well established. To annul; to make void; to deprive of authority or force; to nullify; to abolish; as, to disannul a law or an ordinance.

Wilt thou also disannul my judgment? Job 40. Galatians 3. 15.


DISANNULLED, pp. Annulled; vacated; made void.


DISANNULLING, ppr. Making void; depriving of authority or binding force.


DISANNULMENT, n. The act of making void; as the disannulment of a law or decree.

Disannual differs from repeal, as the genus from the species. A repeal makes a law void by the same power that enacted it. Annulment or disannulment destroys its force and authority by repeal or by other means.
