I was scratching my head on that one.Besides you know I just realized the other day that my NKJV has some kind of symbol on it that I never even noticed before and it is of noticeable size to.I'm going to see if I can find it online to see what that is. It looks like maybe something Celtic?
Websters Dictionary and a few others are supposed to have the same meanings as what was meant when the KJV was translated, if that helps.
1. To charge with something wrong or disgraceful; to reproach; to cast in the teeth; followed by with or for, before the thing imputed; as, to upbraid a man for his folly or his intemperance.
Yet do not upbraid us with our distress.
He upbraided them with their unbelief. Mat 16.
[The use of to and of, after upbraid, as to upbraid a man of his gain by iniquity, to upbraid to a man his evil practices, has been long discontinued.]
2. To reproach; to chide.
God who giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not. James 1.
3. To reprove with severity.
Then he began to upbraid the cities wherein most of his mighty works were done - Mat 11.
4. To bring reproach on.
How much doth thy kindness upbraid my wickedness!
5. To treat with contempt. Obs.
That symbol you are wondering about is discussed here > http://www.seekgod.ca/warning.htm
Have a great day!
3John 1:4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
