Strongs Concordance:

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

THEM, pronoun the objective case of they, and of both genders. [In our mother tongue, them is an adjective, answering to the, in the dative and ablative cases of both numbers. The common people continue to use it in the plural number as an adjective, for they say, bring them horses, or them horses are to be led to water.]

Go ye to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. Matthew 25:2.

Then shall the king say to them on his right hand, come, ye blessed of my Father-- Matthew 25:2.

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

THEME, noun [Latin thema; Gr. to set or place.]

1. A subject or topic on which a person writes or speaks. The preacher takes a text for the theme of his discourse.

When a soldier was the theme my name

Was not far off.

2. A short dissertation composed by a student.

3. In grammar, a radical verb, or the verb in its primary absolute sense, not modified by inflections; as the infinitive mode in English. But a large portion of the words called themes in Greek, are not the radical words, but are themselves derivative forms of the verb. The fact is the same in other languages.

4. In music, a series of notes selected as the text or subject of a new composition.

Webster's 1828 Dictionary

THEMSELVES, a compound of them and selves, and added to they by way of emphasis or pointed distinction. Thus we say, they themselves have done the mischief; they cannot blame others. In this case, themselves is in the nominative case, and maybe considered as an emphatical pronoun.

In some cases, themselves is used without they, and strands as the only nominative to the following verb. themselves have done the mischief.

This word is used also in the objective case after a verb or preposition. Things in themselves innocent, may under certain circumstances cease to be so.

They open to themselves at length the way.
