Smith's Bible DictionaryRoad
This word occurs but once in the Authorized Version of the Bible, viz. in (1 Samuel 37:10) where it is used in the sense of "raid" or "inroad." Where a travelled road is meant "path" or "way" is used, since the eastern roads are more like our paths.
Easton's Bible Dictionary(1 Samuel 27:10; R.V., "raid"), an inroad, an incursion. This word is never used in Scripture in the sense of a way or path.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary1. (n.) A journey, or stage of a journey.
2. (n.) An inroad; an invasion; a raid.
3. (n.) A place where one may ride; an open way or public passage for vehicles, persons, and animals; a track for travel, forming a means of communication between one city, town, or place, and another.
