pon'-der: Occurs in the King James Version 5 times in the Book of Proverbs and nowhere else in the Old Testament. In each case it means "to consider carefully," "to weigh mentally." In Pr 4:26 and Pr 5:21, the Revised Version (British and American) substitutes "make level." In Pr 5:6, it drops out entirely in the Revised Version (British and American). In Pr 21:2 and Pr 24:12, "weigh" is substituted for "ponder." The one New Testament passage is Lu 2:19; here the Revised Version (British and American) has "pondering" where the King James Version has "and pondered."
