VERILY, VERITY

ver'-i-ti, ver'-i-ti ('abhal, etc.; amen): "Verily," as corroborative adverb, represents various Hebrew and Greek words and particles ('abhal, "truly," in Genesis 42:21, etc.; 'akh, "only," "surely," in Psalm 66:19 Isaiah 45:15, etc.). For the King James Version "verily thou shalt be fed" (Psalm 37:3, where 'emunah), the American Standard Revised Version has "feed on his faithfulness" and the English Revised Version "follow after faithfulness," margin in both "feed securely." The Greek amen (Hebrew 'amen) is used very frequently in the Gospels as an emphatic confirmation of Christ's sayings (Matthew 5:18, 26; Matthew 6:2 Mark 3:28, etc.), and in John's Gospel is repeated to give additional emphasis (John 1:51; John 3:3, 5, 11, The Revised Version (British and American) makes various changes, as "wholly" for "verily" (Job 19:13), "surely" (Psalm 39:5; Psalm 73:13), "indeed" (Mark 9:12 Romans 2:25 Hebrews 3:5; Hebrews 7:5), etc., and sometimes puts "verily" where the King James Version has other words, as "also" (Matthew 13:23), "doubtless" (Philippians 3:8), etc.

Verity is the translation of 'emeth, "truth," "stedfastness" (Psalm 111:7, "The works of his hands are verity and judgment," the American Standard Revised Version "truth and justice," the English Revised Version "truth and judgment"); and of aletheia, "truth," "reality," "certainty" (1 Timothy 2:7), "faith and verity," the Revised Version (British and American) "faith and truth."
