The meaning of Settle (2) in the Bible
(From International Standard Bible Encyclopedia)

The Hebrew language has 8 words which are thus translated: yashabh, nachath, 'amadh, shaqat, tabha', natsabh, maqom, qapha'. Now the meaning is to settle down, to cause to occur (Ezekiel 36:11 the King James Version; I Chronicles 17:14); then it denotes fixedness (II Kings 8:11; Psalms 119:89; Proverbs 8:25); again it points to a condition of absolute quiescence, as the settlings on the lees (Jeremiah 48:11); and in still another place it means packing solidly together (Psalms 65:10). In the New Testament the words hedraios, themelioo, and tithemi, have been translated "settle." the Revised Version (British and American) in I Peter 5:10 has translated "establish," and the context unquestionably points to the idea of a fixed establishment in the faith. In Luke 21:14 the word translated "settle" evidently points to a fixed determination.
