Object

ob-jekt’: Now used only in the sense "to make opposition," but formerly in a variety of meanings derived from the literal sense "to throw against." So with the meaning "to charge with" in [[The Wisdom of Solomon]] 2:12, the [[King James Version]] "He objecteth to our infamy the transgressing of our education" (the [[Revised Version]] (British and American) "layeth to our charge sins against our discipline"), or "to make charges against" in Ac 24:19, the King James Version "who ought to have been here before thee, and object, if they had ought against me" (the Revised Version (British and American) "and to make accusation").
