Idle \I"dle\, a. [Compar. {Idler}; superl. {Idlest}.] [OE. idel,

ijdel, OHG. [imac]tal vain, empty, mere, G. eitel, Dan. & Sw.
idel mere, pure, and prob. to Gr. ? clear, pure, ? to burn.
Cf. {Ether}.]
1. Of no account; useless; vain; trifling; unprofitable;
thoughtless; silly; barren. "Deserts idle." --Shak.
[1913 Webster]

give account thereof in the day of judgment. --Matt.
xii. 36.

use; unemployed; as, idle hours.

Syn: Unoccupied; unemployed; vacant; inactive; indolent;
sluggish; slothful; useless; ineffectual; futile;
frivolous; vain; trifling; unprofitable; unimportant.

Usage: {Idle}, {Indolent}, {Lazy}. A propensity to inaction
is expressed by each of these words; they differ in
the cause and degree of this characteristic. Indolent
denotes an habitual love to ease, a settled dislike of
movement or effort; idle is opposed to {busy}, and
denotes a dislike of continuous exertion. Lazy is a
stronger and more contemptuous term than indolent.
[1913 Webster]

To spend in idleness; to waste; to consume; -- often followed
by away; as, to idle away an hour a day.
