The meaning of Sent in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

(shalach; apostello): "Sent" in the Old Testament is the translation of shalach, "to send" (of presents, messengers, etc., Genesis 32:18; Genesis 44:3; Judges 6:14; I Kings 14:6; Esther 3:13; Proverbs 17:11; Jeremiah 49:14; Ezekiel 3:5; Ezekiel 23:40; Daniel 10:11; Obadiah 1:1); of shelach, Aramaic (Ezra 7:14; Daniel 5:24); of shilluchim, "sending" (Exodus 18:2); in the New Testament of apostello, "to send off" or "away," "to send forth" (John 9:7, "the pool of Siloam (which is by interpretation, Sent)"); compare Luke 13:4; Nehemiah 3:15, the pool of Siloah, the Revised Version (British and American) "Shelah"; Isaiah 8:6, "the waters of Shiloah that go softly," where Septuagint has Siloam for Hebrew shiloach, "a sending," which, rather than "Sent," is the original meaning—a sending forth of waters. See SILOAM. "Sent" is also the translation of apostolos, "one sent forth" (the original of the familiar word "apostle"); in John 13:16, "one that is sent" (margin, "Greek 'an apostle'"); compare Hebrews 1:14.
