International Standard Bible EncyclopediaSURE; SURELY
shoor, shoor'-li: In modern English is used chiefly in the phrases "to be sure" or "to make sure," and as a simple adjective it is usually either archaic or exceedingly colloquial. The adjectival use, however, is common (chiefly for 'aman, "to confirm," and its derivatives) in English Versions of the Bible, where modern English would prefer "secure" or "certain" (1 Samuel 2:35; Sir 40:25; Acts 13:34, etc.). "To be sure that" is also fairly common in the King James Version, and occasionally (as in Deuteronomy 12:23, "Be sure that thou eat not the blood," for chazaq, "to be firm") it has rather more emphasis than in modern English. But usually the phrase is a mere periphrasis for some word meaning "to know" (compare the Revised Version (British and American) Exodus 3:19 Luke 10:11 Romans 2:2, etc.). In Proverbs 6:3, the King James Version has "Make sure thy friend" for rahabh, "be boisterous" "beset" the Revised Version (British and American) "importune." The sense is "Force him to pay his debt."
