This word is found in its antiquated sense in the Burial Service, but in no other part of the Prayer book. It occurs in a passage quoted from Job 14:1-2, concluding with "and never continueth in one stay." The word "stay" may be changed for "place" or "condition" without affecting the sense.

Definition of stay
