APPREHEND

ap-re-hend': Occurs in the New Testament in two meanings: "to arrest" (piazo; Acts 12:4; 2 Cor 11:32 the Revised Version (British and American), "take"); and "to seize," "grasp," "take into one's possession," "attain," "inquire eagerly" (katalambano, the American Standard Revised Version "laid hold on," "laid fast hold of," Phil 3:12,13; Eph 3:18). In Jn 1:5, "The darkness apprehended it not," the Revised Version, margin gives "overcame not."
See COMPREHEND.
