Deceivableness

de-sev’-a-b’-l-nes, de-sev’ (nasha’, "to lead astray"): "The pride of thy heart hath deceived thee" (Jer 49:16), i.e. "Thy stern mountain fastnesses have persuaded thee that thou art impregnable." In Jer 20:7, "O Lord, thou hast deceived me, and I was deceived," pathah, signifies "to be enticed," "persuaded," as in the American Standard Revised Version and the Revised Version, margin.


"Deceivableness" (apate), only in 2Th 2:10, signifies power to deceive, not liability to deception; the Revised Version (British and American) "deceit."
