ṓ - pin´yun ( דּע , dēa' , סעפּים , ṣe‛ippı̄m ): "Opinion" occurs only 5 times, thrice in Job ( Job 32:6 , Job 32:10 , Job 32:17 ) as the translation of dēa' , "knowledge," "opinion" (in the address of Elihu), and once of ṣe‛ippı̄m , from ṣā‛aph , "to divide or branch out," hence, division or party, unsettled opinion (in the memorable appeal of Elijah, "How long halt ye between two opinions?" 1 Kings 18:21 , the American Standard Revised Version "How long go ye limping between the two sides?"). In Ecclesiasticus 3:24, we have, "For many are deceived by their own vain opinion" (hupolepsis , "a taking up," "a hasty judgment"), the Revised Version (British and American) The conceit of many hath led them astray.
