International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

kon-vins' (elegcho): Another form etymologically of "convict," means to bring to a decision concerning the truth or the falsehood of a proposition (Job 32:12). As usually applied to what is of a more individual and private character, and having reference to what is either good or bad, or what is in itself without moral quality, it has given way in the Revised Version (British and American) to either "convict," "reprove" or "confute."


Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (v. t.) To overpower; to overcome; to subdue or master.

2. (v. t.) To overcome by argument; to force to yield assent to truth; to satisfy by proof.

3. (v. t.) To confute; to prove the fallacy of.

4. (v. t.) To prove guilty; to convict.
