vē´hḗ - ment , vē´hḗ - ment - 51 ( חרישׁי , ḥărı̄shı̄ ; ἐπιπόθησις , epipóthēsis ): "Vehement" (from Latin vehere, "to carry," or ve, "out of," and mens, "mind"), carried away by the mind or force of passion, occurs twice in the Old Testament ( Song of Solomon 8:6 , the King James Version "a most vehement flame" (jealousy)) as the translation of shalhebheth -yāh , "the flame of Yah," which perhaps means lightning (the Revised Version (British and American) "a very flame of Yahweh," margin "a most vehement flame, Hebrew : Yah"); and as the translation of the King James Version ḥărı̄shı̄ , "silent," "still," hence "sultry" (Jonah 4:8 , the King James Version "a vehement east wind," the Revised Version (British and American) "sultry"). In the New Testament, "vehement desire" is (the King James Version) the translation of epipothēsis , "earnest desire" (2 Corinthians 7:11 , the Revised Version (British and American) "longing").

"Vehemently" is the translation of deinṓs , "greatly" ( Luke 11:53 ); of ek perissoú or ekperissṓs , "beyond measure" (Mark 14:31 , "He spake exceeding vehemently"); of eutónōs , "intensely" (Luke 23:10 ); and in the King James Version of prosrhḗgnumi , "to break" or "dash upon" (Luke 6:48 , Luke 6:49 , the Revised Version (British and American) "break").
