in´krēs , (noun), in - krēs ´ (verb): Employed in the English Bible both as verb and as noun, and in both cases to represent a number of different words in the original. As a verb it is used in the ordinary sense of the term. As a noun it is usually used of plant life, or of the herds and flocks, to denote the fruitage or the offspring; more rarely of money, to denote the interest. As examples of the different terms translated by this word, students who read Hebrew or Greek may compare Deuteronomy 7:22; Proverbs 16:21; Job 10:16 the King James Version; Job 12:23; Numbers 18:30; Deuteronomy 7:13; Ezekiel 22:12 in the Old Testament, and John 3:30; 1 Corinthians 3:6; Colossians 2:19; Ephesians 4:16 in the New Testament.
