v.

late 14c., aouren, “to worship, pay divine honors to, bow down before,” from Old French aorer “to adore, worship, praise” (10c.), from Latin adorare “speak to formally, beseech, ask in prayer,” in Late Latin “to worship,” from ad- “to” (see ad-) + orare “speak formally, pray” (see orator). Meaning “to honor very highly” is attested from 1590s; weakened sense of “to be very fond of” emerged by 1880s. Related: Adored; adoring.

to worship; to express reverence and homage. The forms of adoration among the Jews were putting off the shoes (Ex. 3:5; Josh. 5:15), and prostration (Gen. 17:3; Ps. 95:6; Isa. 44:15, 17, 19; 46:6). To “kiss the Son” in Ps. 2:12 is to adore and worship him. (See Dan. 3:5, 6.) The word itself does not occur in Scripture.
