Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

דָּת f. constr. דַּת, pl. דָּתִים. constr. דָּתֵי a word belonging to the later Hebrew and Chaldee (see below [Specially Deuteronomy 33:2 ]); prob. of Persic origin, i.q. Heb. חֹק a statute, pr. something set; Saß, Saßung, Gefeß; Pers. داد right, justice, from دادن to give, to set, to command; Pehlev. Dadha, Dadestan; Zend. Daetie; Arm. ղ-ատ judgment (Syr. ܕܳܬܐܳ ܕܬܰܐܳ placitum). [In Thes. it is suggested that this word may be from יָדָה in the sense to shew, to point out.] In the Old Test. it denotes

(1) a law, Esther 1:13, 15, 19 2:12, כְּרָת הַיּוֹם “according to the law of to-day,” as to day; 9:13.

(2) a royal mandate, an edict, Esther 3:14, 8:13 9:14. To this I also refer the words, Deuteronomy 33:2, מִימִינוֹ אֵשׁ דָּת לָמוֹ “at his (Jehovah’s) right hand fire, to be a rule for them (Israel) in journeying,” referring to the pillar of fire. Others render it a fire of law, a law given with fire. Vulg. lex ignea, and similarly Syr., Chald., Arab.

דָּת Chald. f.

(1) law, Daniel 6:9, 13, 16. דָּתָא דִּי אֱלָהּ “the law of God;” Ezra 7:12, 21 Ezra 7:21.

(2) religion, system of religion, Daniel 6:6, בְּדָת אֱלָהֵהּ “in the law of his God,” in his religion; compare 7:25. (The Rabbins also apply this word to Christianity and Mohammedanism.)

(3) an edict, a decree, Daniel 2:13, 15.

(4) counsel, plan, purpose, Daniel 2:9, חֲדָה הִיא דַתְכוֹן “this only is your counsel.” [This passage is referred in Thes. to the signification of edict, decree, “one thing is decreed for you.”]
