International Standard Bible Encyclopedia


(1) naghas (Deuteronomy 15:2, 3 2 Kings 23:35 Isaiah 58:3), to secure by force or pressure interest or money for tribute, and perhaps, in Isaiah 58:3, labor or toil; but compare the Revised Version, margin "oppress all your laborers"; probably better with a slight change of text, "exact money lent on pledges" (reading for `abhoT beyedhekhem, `atstsebhekhem).

(2) nasha', or nashah (Nehemiah 5:7, 10, 11 (the King James Version not the Revised Version (British and American)) Job 11:6 (but see below); Psalm 89:22), to demand interest, to be a harsh and importunate creditor, a practice which Nehemiah asks the Jews to forego. Job 11:6 better with the Revised Version, margin for "exact," "causeth to be forgotten."

(3) yotse' (2 Kings 15:20 (if text is correct)). Menahem secured the tribute which the king of Assyria demanded by levying a tax on the chief men of his kingdom.

(4) prassein (Luke 3:13 the King James Version (compare Daniel 11:20 Septuagint); APC 1Macc 10:35 the Revised Version (British and American)), to demand money or tribute or taxes of anyone.
