HURT

hurt: The term (noun and verb) represents a large number of Hebrew words, of which the chief are ra` (verb ra`a`), "evil" (Gen 26:29; 1 Sam 24:9; Ps 35:4, etc.), and shebher or shebher (from shabhar), "a fracture" or "breaking" (Jer 6:14; 8:11,21; 10:19; compare Ex 22:10,14). In Greek a principal verb is adikeo, "to do injustice" (Lk 10:19; Rev 2:11; 6:6, etc.); once the word "hurt" is used in the King James Version (Acts 27:10, story of Paul's shipwreck) for hubris, "injury" (thus the Revised Version (British and American)). In the Revised Version (British and American) "hurt" sometimes takes the place of other words in the King James Version, as "sick" (Prov 23:35), "breach" (Isa 30:26), "bruise" (Jer 30:12; Nah 3:19); sometimes, on the other hand, the word in the King James Version is exchanged in the Revised Version (British and American) for "evil" (Josh 24:20), "harm" (Acts 18:10), or, as above, "injury" (Acts 27:10). These references sufficiently show the meaning of the word--harm, bruise, breaking, etc. In Jeremiah (ut supra) the word is used figuratively for moral disease or corruption.
