Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
QUARREL . The original meaning of this Eng. word (from Lat. quereta ) is a ‘complaint.’ This is its meaning in Colossians 3:13 AV [Note: Authorized Version.] ‘If any man have a quarrel against any.’ Then it came to mean any cause of complaint, or any case that had to be stated or defended, as Mark 6:19 ‘Herodias had a quarrel against him’: so Leviticus 26:25 , 2 Kings 5:7 .
