Besides the common use of this word in the sense of to reply, it is very often used in the bible, following the Hebrew and Greek idioms, in the sense of to speak; meaning simply that one begins or resumes his discourse, Zechariah 3:4 ; 6:4 ; Matthew 11:25 ; 12:38 ; Luke 7:40 . It also means, to sing in choruses or responses, 1 Samuel 18:7 ; and to give account of one's self in judgment, Genesis 30:33 ; Job 9:3 .
