Verb[edit]

stelen (third-person singular simple present steleth, present participle stelende, stelynge, first-/third-person singular past indicative stal, past participle stolen)

  1. to steal
    • c. 1395, John Wycliffe, John Purvey [et al.], transl., Bible (Wycliffite Bible (later version), MS Lich 10.)‎[1], published c. 1410, Epheſianes 4:28, page 75v, column 2; republished as Wycliffe's translation of the New Testament, Lichfield: Bill Endres, 2010:
      he þat ſtal .· now ſtele he not / but moꝛe trauele he in woꝛchyng wiþ his hondis þat þat is good .· þat he haue wher of he ſchal ȝyue to nedi
      One who stole shouldn't steal again, but instead should make something that's useful though labour with their hands, so they'll have [things] to give to the needy.
