In the New Testament the Greek word krino, is translated "determine," and it has the above meaning (Acts 20:16; 25:25; 1 Cor 2:2). The word occurs frequently in the Old Testament with this meaning (see Ex 21:22; 1 Sam 20:7,9,33).

See DETERMINATE.
The Hebrew term charats is translated "determine" with the above meaning; as "his days are determined" (Job 14:5); "a destruction is determined" (Isa 10:22); "desolations are determined" (Dan 9:26). The Hebrew term mishpaT, which means "judgment" or "sentence," is translated "determination" in Zeph 3:8.
