Anxiety

The word “anxiety” does not appear in the KJV, and is found only seven times in the RSV, although the words derived from it, “anxious” and “anxiously,” appear twenty-seven times. The related terms, “[[care]],” “careful,” and “carefulness,” occur quite frequently. The most frequently occurring Hebrew words which convey the idea of anxiety are דְּאָגָה, H1796, dread, anxiety; דָּאַג, H1793, to be anxious about. The most commonly-used Gr. words conveying the same idea are μεριμνάω, G3534, to be anxious; and μέριμνα, G3533, care, anxiety.
