In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed... No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.

look

LOOK, v.i. [See Light. The primary sense is to stretch, to extend, to shoot, hence to direct the eye. We observe its primary sense is nearly the same as that of seek. Hence, to look for is to seek.]

1. To direct the eye towards an object, with the intention of seeing it.

When the object is within sight, look is usually followed by on or at. We look on or at a picture; we look on or at the moon; we cannot look on or at the unclouded sun, without pain.

At, after look, is not used in our version of the Scriptures. In common usage, at or on is now used indifferently in many cases, and yet in other cases, usage has established a preference. In general, on is used in the more solemn forms of expression. Moses was afraid to look on God. The Lord look on you and judge. In these and similar phrases, the use of at would be condemned, as expressing too little solemnity.

In some cases, at seems to be more properly used before very distant objects; but the cases can hardly be defined.

The particular direction of the eye is expressed by various modifying words; as, to look down, to look up, to look back to look forward, to look from, to look round, to look out, to look under. When the object is not in sight, look is followed by after, or for. Hence, to look after, or look for, is equivalent to seek or search, or to expect.

2. To see; to have the sight or view of.

Fate sees thy life lodged in a brittle glass, and looks it through, but to it cannot pass.

3. To direct the intellectual eye; to apply the mind or understanding; to consider; to examine. Look at the conduct of this man; view it in all its aspects. Let every man look into the state of his own heart. Let us look beyond the received notions of men on this subject.

4. To expect.

He must look to fight another battle, before he could reach Oxford. [Little used.

5. To take care; to watch.

Look that ye bind them fast.

6. To be directed.

Let thine eyes look right on. Prov. 4.

7. To seem; to appear; to have a particular appearance. The patient looks better than he did. The clouds look rainy.

I am afraid it would look more like vanity than gratitude.

Observe how such a practice looks in another person.

So we say, to look stout or big; to look peevish; to look pleasant or graceful.

8. To have a particular direction or situation; to face; to front.

The gate that looketh toward the north. Ezek. 8.

The east gate of the Lord's house, that looketh eastward. Ezek. 11.

To look about, to look on all sides, or in different directions.

To look about one, to be on the watch; to be vigilant; to be circumspect or guarded.

1. To look after, to attend; to take care of; as, to look after children.

2. To expect; to be in a state of expectation.

Men's hearts falling them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth. Luke 21.

3. To seek; to search.

My subject does not oblige me to look after the water, or point forth the place whereunto it has now retreated.

1. To look for, to expect; as, to look for news by the arrival of a ship.

Look now for no enchanting voice.

2. To seek; to search; as, to look for lost money, or lost cattle.

To look into, to inspect closely; to observe narrowly; to examine; as, to look into the works of nature; to look into the conduct of another; to look into one's affairs.

Which things the angels desire to look into. 1Peter 1.

1. To look on, to regard; to esteem.

Her friends would look on her the worse.

2. To consider; to view; to conceive of; to think.

I looked on Virgil as a succinct, majestic writer.

3. To be a mere spectator.

I'll be a candle-holder and look on.

To look over, to examine one by one; as, to look over a catalogue of books; to look over accounts.

To overlook, has a different sense, to pass over without seeing.

To look out, to be on the watch. The seaman looks out for breakers.

1. To look to, or unto, to watch; to take care of.

Look well to thy herds. Prov. 27.

2. To resort to with confidence or expectation of receiving something; to expect to receive from. The creditor may look to the surety for payment.

Look to me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth. Is. 45.

To look through, to penetrate with the eye, or with the understanding; to see or understand perfectly.

LOOK, v.t.

1. To seek; to search for.

Looking my love, I go from place to place. Obs.

2. To influence by looks or presence; as, to look down opposition.

A spirit fit to start into an empire, and look the world to law.

To look out, to search for and discover. Look out associates of good reputation.

2Kings 14.

LOOK, n.

1. Cast of countenance; air of the face; aspect; as, a high look is an index of pride; a downcast look is an index of pride; a downcast look indicates modesty, bashfulness, or depression of mind.

Pain, disgrace and poverty have frightful looks.

2. The act of looking or seeing. Every look filled him with anguish.

About 1828

First dictionary of the American Language!

Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies.

No other dictionary compares with the Webster's 1828 dictionary. The English language has changed again and again and in many instances has become corrupt. The American Dictionary of the English Language is based upon God's written word, for Noah Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions. This standard reference tool will greatly assist students of all ages in their studies. From American History to literature, from science to the Word of God, this dictionary is a necessity. For homeschoolers as well as avid Bible students it is easy, fast, and sophisticated.
