rek´ord , rek´ôrd : (1) The English word, where it occurs in the Old Testament and the New Testament in the sense of testimony, is translated in the Revised Version (British and American) "witness" ( Deuteronomy 30:19; Deuteronomy 31:28; John 1:19 , John 1:32; John 8:13 , John 8:14; Romans 10:2 , etc.). See WITNESS . But in Job 16:19 for the King James Version "my record," the Revised Version (British and American) has "he that voucheth for me." (2) In Ezra 4:15; Ezra 6:2 ( dokhrān , dikhrōn ), and Esther 6:1 ( zikkārōn ), the word denotes Persian state chronicles; compare 1 Macc 14:23; 2 Macc 2:1.
