Succeed

suk-sed’, suk-ses’ (yarash, sakhal; euemeria): "To succeed" means, (1) and originally, "to follow after"; (2) mostly in modern English, "to prosper"; in the [[King James Version]], with one exception, the word has a qualifying adjective. (1) In the first sense it is the translation of yarash, "to seize" or "to take possession" (De 2:12; 12:29, the American Standard [[Revised Version]] "dispossessest," the English Revised Version "possessest"); of qum, "to rise up" (De 25:6, "shall succeed in the name of his brother"); of diadechomai (Ecclesiasticus 48:8, "prophets to succeed after him").
