LIST

A variant of "lust" (see LUST), meaning "to wish," found in the King James Version of Mt 17:12 parallel Mk 9:13; Jn 3:8, as translation of thelo, and in Jas 3:4 as translation of boulomai. The last case the English Revised Version has rendered "will," and the American Standard Revised Version has made the same change throughout. The word is obsolete in modern English, but Jn 3:8 is still used proverbially, "The wind bloweth where it listeth."
