ESTATE

es-tat': While the King James Version uses both "estate" and "state" with the meaning of "condition," the American Standard Revised Version distinguishes, using "state" for the idea of condition, "estate" for position; and replaces "estate" of the King James Version by more definite expressions in many cases. Compare Col 4:7 the King James Version, "All my state shall Tychicus declare unto you," but 4:8, the King James Version "might know your estate" the Revised Version (British and American) "may know our state"; Lk 1:48 the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) "the low estate" (of the Lord's hand-maiden); Mk 6:21, the King James Version "chief estates" the Revised Version (British and American) "chief men"; Dan 11:7,20,21,38, the King James Version "his estate," the Revised Version (British and American) "his place," both with margin "his office."
