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.

testimony

TEST'IMONY, n. [L. testimonium.] A solemn declaration or affirmation made for the purpose of establishing or proving some fact. Such affirmation in judicial proceedings,may be verbal or written, but must be under oath. Testimony differs from evidence; testimony is the declaration of a witness, and evidence is the effect of that declaration on the mind, or the degree of light which it affords.

1. Affirmation; declaration. These doctrines are supported by the uniform testimony of the fathers. The belief of past facts must depend on the evidence of human testimony, or the testimony of historians.

2. Open attestation; profession.

Thou for the testimony of truth hast borne

Universal reproach.

3. Witness; evidence; proof of some fact.

Shake off the dust under your feet, for a testimony against them. Mark 6.

4. In Scripture, the two tables of the law.

Thou shalt put into the ark the testimony which I shall give thee. Ex.25.

5. The book of the law.

He brought forth the king's son--and gave him the testimony. 2 Kings 11.

6. The gospel, which testifies of Christ and declares the will of God. 1 Cor. 2. 2 Tim.1.

7. The ark. Ex.16.

8. The word of God; the Scriptures.

The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple Ps.19.

9. The laws or precepts of God. "I love thy testimonies." "I have kept thy testimonies."

10. That which is equivalent to a declaration; manifestation.

Sacrifices were appointed by God for a testimony of his hatred of sin.

11. Evidence suggested to the mind; as the testimony of conscience. 2 Cor.1.

12. Attestation; confirmation.

TEST'IMONY, v.t. To witness. [Not in use.]

Why 1828?

I love the Bible, especially the King James Version. The 1828 Webster's sheds so much light on various words used in the KJV. It lifts thought to a higher understanding.

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.
