To censure; to express disapprobation of; to find fault with; opposed to praise or commend, and applicable most properly to persons, but applied also to things.I withstood him, because he was to be blamed. Gal.2.I must blame your conduct; or I must blame you for neglecting business. Legitimately, it cannot be followed by of.2. To bring reproach upon; to blemish; to injure.

BLAME, n. Censure; reprehension; imputation of a fault; disapprobation; an expression of disapprobation for something deemed to be wrong.Let me bear the blame forever. Gen.43.1. Fault; crime; sin; that which is deserving of censure or disapprobation.That we should be holy and without blame before him in love. Eph.i.2. Hurt; injury.And glancing down his shield, from blame him fairly blest.The sense of this word, as used by Spenser, proves that it is a derivative from the root of blemish.
To blame, in the phrase,he is to blame, signifies blamable, to be blamed.
Blame is not strictly a charge or accusation of a fault; but it implies an opinion in the censuring party, that the person censured is faulty. Blame is the act or expression of disapprobation for what is supposed to be wrong.
