Assault


International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

The Hebrew verbal form is used of pressing forward a siege (see Siege), but also of a hostile attack upon a person then translated "assault" (Es 8:11). The Greek word horme used of an attack upon persons in Ac 14:5 (the King James Version) is rendered "onset" in the Revised Version (British and American). The word "assault" remains in Ac 17:5, of attacking the house of Jason in Thessalonica, where the verb is ephistanai, "to come suddenly upon."
