1828 edition of Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language
Noah Webster, the Father of American Christian education, wrote the first American dictionary and established a system of rules to govern spelling, grammar, and reading. This master linguist understood the power of words, their definitions, and the need for precise word usage in communication to maintain independence. Webster used the Bible as the foundation for his definitions.

Word of the Day Comparison
HAP'PINESS, n. [from happy.] The agreeable sensations which spring from the enjoyment of good; that state of a being in which his desires are gratified, by the enjoyment of pleasure without pain; felicity; but happiness usually expresses less than felicity, and felicity less than bliss. Happiness is comparative. To a person distressed with pain, relief from that pain affords happiness; in other cases we give the name happiness to positive pleasure or an excitement of agreeable sensations. Happiness therefore admits of indefinite degrees of increase in enjoyment, or gratification of desires. Perfect happiness, or pleasure unalloyed with pain, is not attainable in this life.2. Good luck; good fortune.3. Fortuitous elegance; unstudied grace. For there's a happiness as well as care.
Good luck; good fortune;
An agreeable feeling or condition of the
soul arising from good fortune or propitious happening of any kind;
the possession of those circumstances or that state of being which is
attended with enjoyment; the state of being happy; contentment;
joyful satisfaction; felicity; blessedness.
Fortuitous elegance; unstudied grace; --
used especially of language.
Webster considered "education useless without the Bible." And as a result he utilized God's written word as a key to the meaning of words.
This is the reason, the Webster 1828 is one of the most important reprint of the twentieth century, the essential tool of education for Christians. Compare definitions of such words as education, marriage, truth, and many more.
