Determine, Determinate

[ 1,,G2919, krino ]
primarily, to separate," hence, "to be of opinion, approve, esteem," Romans 14:5, also "to determine, resolve, decree," is used in this sense in Acts 3:13; Acts 20:16; Acts 25:25; Acts 27:1; 1 Corinthians 2:2; 2 Corinthians 2:1; Titus 3:12. See CONDEMN, JUDGE, JUDGMENT, LAW, B, No. 2.

[ 2,,G3724, horizo ]
denotes "to bound to set a boundary" (Eng., "horizon"); hence, "to mark out definitely, determine;" it is translated "to determine" in Luke 22:22, of the foreordained pathway of Christ; Acts 11:29, of a "determination" to send relief; Acts 17:26, where it is used of fixing the bounds of seasons. In Acts 2:23 the verb is translated "determinate," with reference to counsel. Here the verbal form might have been adhered to by the translation "determined;" that is to say, in the sense of "settled." In Romans 1:4 it is translated "declared," where the meaning is that Christ was marked out as the Son of God by His resurrection and that of others (See under DECLARE). In Acts 10:42; Acts 17:31 it has its other meaning of "ordain," that is, "to appoint by determined counsel." In Hebrews 4:7, it is translated "limiteth," but preferably in the RV, "defineth," with reference to a certain period; here again it approaches its primary meaning of marking out the bounds of. See DECLARE, No. 9, LIMIT ORDAIN.
