International Standard Bible EncyclopediaASSAULT
a-solt' (tsur; horme): The Hebrew verbal form is used of pressing forward a siege (see SIEGE), but also of a hostile attack upon a person then translated "assault" (Esther 8:11). The Greek word horme used of an attack upon persons in Acts 14:5 (the King James Version) is rendered "onset" in the Revised Version (British and American). The word "assault" remains in Acts 17:5, of attacking the house of Jason in Thessalonica, where the verb is ephistanai, "to come suddenly upon."
