Enjoin   Listen
verb
Enjoin  v. t.  (past & past part. enjoined; pres. part. enjoining)  
1.
To lay upon, as an order or command; to give an injunction to; to direct with authority; to order; to charge. "High matter thou enjoin'st me." "I am enjoined by oath to observe three things."
2.
(Law) To prohibit or restrain by a judicial order or decree; to put an injunction on. "This is a suit to enjoin the defendants from disturbing the plaintiffs." Note: Enjoin has the force of pressing admonition with authority; as, a parent enjoins on his children the duty of obedience. But it has also the sense of command; as, the duties enjoined by God in the moral law. "This word is more authoritative than direct, and less imperious than command."

I say perhaps; for, as I compare such an event as the earthquake in Lisbon, or the plague in London, with the extermination of the Canaanites, I solemnly assure you that I find a greater difficulty, as far as my 'intuitions' go, in ...
