frus'-trat (parar; atheteo): "Frustrate" (from frustra, "vain") is the translation of parar, "to break," "to make void," "to bring to nothing" (Ezra 4:5), "to frustrate their purpose" (Isaiah 44:25, "that frustrateth the signs of the liars"); of atheteo, "to displace," "to reject or make void or null": Galatians 2:21, "I do not frustrate the grace of God" (by setting up the righteousness which is "through the law"), the Revised Version (British and American) "make void"; compare APC 1Macc 11:36, "Nothing hereof shall be revoked," the Revised Version (British and American) "annulled" (atheteo).

Revised Version has "frustrateth" for "disappointeth" (Job 5:12, parar).

The adjective appears (APC 2Esdras 10:34), "frustrate of my hope" (APC Judith 11:11, "frustrate of his purpose" (apraktos)).
