a-point': This word is used for the expression of a large variety of ideas and the translation of almost as many words.

See the definition of appoint in the KJV Dictionary

naqabh = "stipulate" (Ge 30:28). paqadh = "put into office" (Ge 41:34; Nu 1:50; Es 2:3); "select" (Jer 51:27); "put in charge" (Jer 49:19; 50:44); "assign" (Nu 4:27; Jer 15:3); "send" (Le 26:16); "designate," "select" (Ex 21:13; Nu 4:19; 2Sa 7:10; Isa 61:3); "single out" (1Sa 8:11-12; Ho 1:11). nathan = "designate," "select" (Nu 35:6 the King James Version; Jos 20:2 the King James Version; Eze 45:6); "set aside" (Ex 30:16). shith = "designate," "select" (Job 14:13; Isa 26:1). So also `amadh (1Ch 15:16; Ne 7:3); so shalach (1Ki 5:9); qarah (Nu 35:11). tsawah = "choose" (2Sa 6:21). bachar = "select" (2Sa 15:15 the King James Version). 'amar = "command" (1Ki 5:6 the King James Version). tithemi = "designate," "select" (Mt 24:51; Lu 12:46). A careful reading of the above passages will bring to mind the doctrine that with reference to the world's work, God Himself calls men into office, selecting them from among the multitude and setting them aside for His special purposes; and that He calls to His assistance not only men but also events and forces of Nature (Le 26:16).
