sēt : This word is used to translate the Hebrew words ( מושׁב , mōshābh , שׁבת , shebheth , כּסּא , kiṣṣē' , and תּכוּנה , tekhūnāh ), once ( Job 23:3 ). It translates the Greek word (καθέδρα , kathédra ) (Matthew 21:12 ; Matthew 23:2 ; Mark 11:15 ), and "chief seat" translates the compound word (πρωτοκαθεδρία , prōtokathedrı́a ) (Matthew 23:6 ; Mark 12:39 ; Luke 20:46 ). In the King James Version it translates (θρόνος , thrónos ) (Luke 1:52 ; Revelation 2:13 ; Revelation 4:4 ; Revelation 11:16 ; Revelation 13:2 ; Revelation 16:10 ), which the Revised Version (British and American) renders "throne." It denotes a place or thing upon which one sits, as a chair, or stool (1 Samuel 20:18 ; Judges 3:20 ). It is used also of the exalted position occupied by men of marked rank or influence, either in good or evil (Matthew 23:2 ; Psalm 1:1 ).
