VIC'TORY, n. L. victoria, from vinco, victus, to conquer.
1. Conquest the defeat of an enemy in battle, or of an antagonist in contest a gaining of the superiority in war or combat. Victory supposes the power of an enemy or an antagonist to prove inferior to that of the victor. Victory however depends not always on superior skill or valor it is often gained by the fault or mistake of the vanquished.
Victory may be honorable to the arms, but shameful to the counsels of a nation.
2. The advantage or superiority gained over spiritual enemies, over passions and appetites, or over temptations, or in any struggle or competition.
Thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory, through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15 .
