-vid系列-

 

provide v.提供
providence n.神的眷顧
   
provident adj.有遠見的
providential adj.根據天意的、幸運的

 

 

pro前,vid看:pro-vide向前看。由『向前看』而指著『看到未來』,

指的是防範未然,未雨綢繆之意,其概起於神會在提供我們東西,來幫助我們。

providence,就是指神明對我們的care

 

provident,是形容一個人可以很有遠見,它所屬的情況像是在農夫在豐收的時候會存糧食,以備未來荒年之用;就像是神的遠見的行為。

providential,是形容某些事像是神到來了一樣,非常幸運的意思。

provisional

adj. [temporary]      

 

provision 除了有提供的意思外還有其他兩個意思

provision其一的意思是條件、但書,但是我可以同意你的要求,不過我有個provision (ie. condition, proviso)

這是源於宗教開會討論時,所暫時同意的論點,意思是為了未來討論而暫時同意。

這個字義,發展出 proviso and provisory

 

provision其二是當食物解,尤其是囤積的食物,比方說出海航行所準備的食物,可以叫provision

 

最後的是provisional, 它就是指暫時的。
