Noah’s Webster’s 1828 edition of the American Dictionary contained a profuse amount of Holy Scripture, as he would use verses from the Old and New Testaments to clarify the context in which a word was to be used. For example,, the definition of the word Faith includes the following sentences:
Being justified by faith. Rom. V.
Without faith it is impossible to please God. Heb. xi
For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2Cor.v.
With the heart man believeth to righteousness. Rom.x.
Your faith is spoken of throughout the whole world. Rom.i.
Hast thou faith? Have it to thyself before God. Rom.xiv.
Children in whom is no faith. Deut.xxxii.
