LOOK, lŏŏk: (1) The uses of the simple vb. in EV are nearly all good modern Eng. In Isa 5:2, however, “He looked that it should bring forth grapes”—“look” is used in the sense of “expect.” Cf AV of Sir 20:14; Acts 28:6, “They looked when he should have swollen” (RV “They expected that he would have swollen”).
