In the New Testament the Greek word krino, is translated "determine," and it has the above meaning (Acts 20:16; Acts 25:25 1 Corinthians 2:2). The word occurs frequently in the Old Testament with this meaning (see Exodus 21:22 1 Samuel 20:7, 9, 33).

(2) "To decree," "ordain," "mark out." The Greek word that is rendered "determine" with this meaning is horizo. See DETERMINATE.

The Hebrew term charats is translated "determine" with the above meaning; as "his days are determined" (Job 14:5); "a destruction is determined" (Isaiah 10:22); "desolations are determined" (Daniel 9:26). The Hebrew term mishpaT, which means "judgment" or "sentence," is translated "determination" in Zephaniah 3:8.
