Daily Dose of Samuel Johnson: OVERTAKE & more

My Word of the Day

To OVERTAKE (OVERTA’KE) v.a.[over and take.]1. To catch any thing by pursuit; to come up to something going before.

We durst not continue longer so near her confines, lest her plagues might suddenly overtake us before we did cease to be partakers with her sins. Hooker.

If I had given you this at over-night, She might have been o’ertaken; and yet she writes Pursuit would be but vain. Shakespeare.

I shall see The winged vengeance overtake such children. Shakesp.

The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil. Bible Ex.xv. 9.

My soul, more earnestly releas’d, Will out-strip hers, as bullets flown before A later bullet may o’ertake, the powder being more. Donne.

To thy wishes move a speedy pace, Or death will soon o’ertake thee in the chace. Dryden.

How must he tremble for fear vengeance should overtake him, before he has made his peace with God. Rogers.2. To take by surprize.

If a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual restore such an one in the spirit of meekness. Bible Gal.vi. 1.
