V. refrain) a thing or a person from something, 1 Peter 3:10, from Psalm 33:14 (Psalms 34:14); cf. Winers Grammar, § 30, 6; ((cf. 326 (305)): R. § 132, 5).

Winer's Grammar, 253 (238)): Luke 8:24; Acts 20:1; 1 Corinthians 13:8; the action or state desisted from is indicated by the addition of a present participle (cf.
