Chide

chid: Only in the Old Testament, translating Hebrew ribh, a word which is more frequently rendered "strive." Since in Ge 31:36; Jud 8:1; Ps 103:9, the strife is one of words, it means in these passages, "scold," or "sharply censure," and is applied either to mutinous protests and reproaches of inferiors to a superior, or, as in the last of these passages, to rebukes administered by a superior to inferiors.
