English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. hire

    In general terms it may be said that to employ is to devote to one's purpose, to use is to render subservient to one's purpose; what is used is viewed as more absolutely an instrument than what is employed; a merchant employs a clerk; he uses pen and paper; as a rule, use is not said of persons, except in a degrading sense; as, the conspirators used him as a go-between. Hence the expression common in some religious circles "that God would use me" is not to be commended; it has also the fault of representing the human worker as absolutely a passive and helpless instrument; the phrase is altogether unscriptural; the Scripture says, "We are laborers together with (co-workers with) God." That which is used is often consumed in the using, or in familiar phrase used up; as, we used twenty tons of coal last winter; in such cases we could not substitute employ. A person may be employed in his own work or in that of another; in the latter case the service is always understood to be for pay. In this connection employ is a word of more dignity than hire; a general is employed in his country's service; a mercenary adventurer is hired to fight a tyrant's battles. It is unsuitable, according to present usage, to speak of hiring a pastor; the Scripture, indeed, says of the preacher, "The laborer is worthy of his hire;" but this sense is archaic, and hire now implies that the one hired works directly and primarily for the pay, as expressed in the noun "hireling;" a Pastor is properly said to be called, or when the business side of the transaction is referred to, engaged, or possibly employed, at a certain salary.

    Synonyms:
    call, employ, engage, engross, make use of, use, use up

    Preposition:
    Employ in, on, upon, or about a work, business, etc.; for a purpose; at a stipulated salary.

How to use hire in a sentence?

  1. Matt Massucci:

  2. Petros Papadakis:

    Honestly, I think it’s more important for the Pac-12 that USC make the right hire going forward, as far as like a really big-name coach and a really big-name staff. That's something the whole conference can use to leverage the new TV deal, whatever that’s going to be, that’s way more important than having an Oregon play, say, Georgia — unless somebody can win it all.

  3. Bruce Morrow:

    We had to have a hearing, he had to hire a lawyer, I testified to his character and fitness, that was the big deal, these people looking at him and making a decision on whether or not he was fit when they didn't walk one day in his shoes.

  4. Mark Walter:

    You can't hire guys like that (Friedman) and then make the decisions for them.
