End

qets, ’ephec, kalah; telos, sunteleo:

The end of anything is its termination, hence, also, final object or purpose.


In Da 9:24, the Iteb text has chatham, "to seal up" ("to complete or finish"), but the margin, followed by the King James Version, the Revised Version (British and American), Driver and most moderns, has hathem, "to finish," "end," "complete," a difference of one letter, but practically none in the sense, "to bring to an end"; compare "to finish the transgression," which precedes.



For "ends of the earth" see ASTRONOMY, sec. III, 2.
