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.

RE-WARD', v.t. [Norm. regarder, to allow; regardes, fees, allowances, perquisites, rewards; regardez, awarded. In these words there appears to be an alliance with regard. But in the Fr. and Norm. guerdon, a reward, and guerdonner, to reward, this alliance does not appear. So the Italian guiderdonare, to reward, is evidently a compound of the L. dono with another word, and apparently with the Sax. wither, G. wider and wieder, D. weder, answering to L. re, denoting return. The Spanish and Portuguese have the Latin word with a different prefix; Sp. galardon, a reward; galardonar, to reward; Port. galardam, galadoar. The Armoric has garredon, garredoner. Reward appears to be from the Norman.]

To give in return, either good or evil. Thou hast rewarded me good, whereas I have rewarded thee evil. – 1 Sam. xxiv. Hence, when good is returned for good, reward signifies to repay, to recompense, to compensate. When evil or suffering is returned for injury or wickedness, reward signifies to punish with just retribution, to take vengeance on; according to the nature of the case. I will render vengeance to my enemies; and will reward them that hate me. – Deut. xxxii. The Son of man will come in the glory of his Father, with his angels, and then he will reward every man according to his works. – Matth. xvi. In the latter passage, reward signifies to render both good and evil.

Noah's 1828 Dictionary

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.

* As a note, I have purchased each of these products. In fact, as we have been developing the Project:: 1828 Reprint, I have purchased several of the bulky hard-cover dictionaries. My opinion is that the 2000-page hard-cover edition is the only good viable solution at this time. The compact edition was a bit disappointing and the CD-ROM as well.
