kos: In both the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) "for this cause" (the King James Version "cause") occurs in Exodus 9:16 as the rendering of ba`abhur zo'th = "in order that"; "to the end that"; so also in Daniel 2:12 for kol-qebhel denah, and in 2 Chronicles 32:20 the King James Version for `al-zo'th, where RVS read "because of." In the New Testament the word is used adverbially in the translation of several Greek phrases: heneka toutou (Matthew 19:5 Mark 10:7); dia touto, John 12:27 Romans 1:26; Romans 13:6; Romans 15:9 (the Revised Version (British and American) "therefore"); 1 Corinthians 11:30 1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Thessalonians 2:11 1 Timothy 1:16; Hebrews 9:15; eis touto, John 18:37 (where the King James Version varying the phraseology reads "to this end" "for this cause"); 1 Peter 4:6 the King James Version; toutou charin, Ephesians 3:14. Unusual renderings occur, as "for his cause" (= "because of"), 2 Corinthians 7:12; as = "affair," "thing," obsolete in the King James Version 1 Kings 12:15 2 Chronicles 10:15, where the word occurs as a paraphrase of necibbah (= "turn of affairs"). In 1 Samuel 25:31 (King James Version, the Revised Version (British and American)) "causeless" (= without cause the American Standard Revised Version) occurs arbitrarily in adverb sense.
