1 Samuel 8 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)
1 And it was done, when Samuel waxed eld (Grew Old), he set his sons to be judges of Israel.
2 And the name of his first begotten son was Joel, and the name of the second was Abiah, that were judges in Beersheba;
3 And his sons went not in his ways, but they bowed after avarice, and they took gifts, and perverted doom
doom (n.) Old English dom “law, judgment, condemnation,” from Proto-Germanic *domaz (cognates: Old Saxon and Old Frisian dom, Old Norse domr, Old High German tuom, Gothic doms “judgment, decree”), from PIE root *dhe- “to set, place, put, do” (cognates: Sanskrit dhaman- “law,” Greek themis “law,” Lithuanian dome “attention;” see factitious). A book of laws in Old English was a dombec. Modern sense of “fate, ruin, destruction” is c. 1600, from the finality of the Christian Judgment Day.
