ek'-sil, eg'-zil (galah, tsa`ah): Occurs twice only in the King James Version (2 Sam 15:19 (galah, "to remove"); Isa 51:14 (tsa`ah, "to be bowed down")). In the Revised Version (British and American) "exile" is substituted for "captivity" (Ezr 8:35 (shebhi), and Ezek 12:4 (golah)); "go into exile," for "remove and go" (Ezek 12:11); "exiles of Ethiopia" for "Ethiopians captives" (Isa 20:4); "He shall let my exiles go free" for "He shall let go my captives" (Isa 45:13); "an exile" for "a captive" (Isa 49:21). "The exile" is in the King James Version and the Revised Version (British and American) "the captivity" (which see).
