Churl (כִּילִי, kilay', Isa 32:5; or כֵּלִי, kelay', ver. 7), a deceiver (as it should have been rendered); while CHURLISH is the proper rendering (of קָשֶּׁה, kasheh', rough, as often elsewhere rendered) for a coarse, ill-natured fellow (1Sa 25:3; compare 2 Maccabees 14:20; Ecclesiasticus 18:18; 42:14), like Nabal (q.v.).
