horizó: to mark off by boundaries, to determineOriginal Word: ὁρίζωPart of Speech:
I define, determine, appoint, decreeDefinition:
I separate, mark off by boundaries; I determine, appoint, designate.
3724 horízō (from horos, "boundary, limit") – properly, to set boundaries (limits) – literally, "determine horizons" (boundaries).
3724 /horízō ("designate limits, boundaries") refers to the Lord (literally) "horizoning" all the physical scenes of life before creation. This guarantees God works each in conjunction with His eternal purpose (providence, see 4286 /próthesis).
[The English term "horizon" ("horizoning") comes from 3724 (horízō), "to set limits." 4309 /proorízō ("pre-horizon, pre-determine") emphasizes God's eternality with its correlations, as operating in His perfect wisdom, absolute foreknowledge, etc.).]
