Syn. — Eternal; immortal, interminable; endless; never- ending; infinite; unceasing; uninterrupted; continual; unintermitted; incessant. — Everlasting, Eternal. Eternal denotes (when taken strictly) without beginning or end of duration; everlasting is sometimes used in our version of the Scriptures in the sense of eternal, but in modern usage is confined to the future, and implies no intermission as well as no end.

Whether we shall meet again I know not;
Therefore our everlasting farewell take;
Forever, and forever farewell, Cassius.
