International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [4]

pẽr - vûrs ´: The group "perverse, -ly, -ness," "act perversely" in the King James Version represents nearly 20 Hebrew words, of which, however, most are derivatives of the stems עיה , ‛āwāh , לוּז , lūz , עקשׁ , ‛āḳash . The Revised Version (British and American) has made few changes. In   Job 6:30 , the Revised Version (British and American) "mischievous" is better for the taste of a thing, and in   Isaiah 59:3 greater emphasis is gained by the Revised Version (British and American) "wickedness." In   Ezekiel 9:9 , "wresting of judgment" is perhaps too concrete, and "perverseness" is kept in the margin (inverted in the King James Version). the Revised Version margin "headlong" in  Numbers 22:32 is over-literal, but in   Numbers 23:21 the American Standard Revised Version margin's "trouble" is a distinct improvement.
