DISTINCTLY

dis-tinkt'-li: Only Neh 8:8, "They read in the book, in the law of God, distinctly." Probably the better rendering is the Revised Version, margin "with an interpretation," i.e. translating into Aramaic. The Hebrew word is a participle of the verb parash = "to make distinct." The corresponding Aramaic word occurs in Ezr 4:18 = "plainly" the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American), better "translated" the Revised Version, margin.
