"(archaic) Used to indicate destiny or certainty. 'Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life.'" I think this is the same as the primary sense ("I shall sing in the choir tomorrow"). Equinox 21:47, 30 December 2009 (UTC)

I'd favor {{rfd-redundant}}. Mglovesfun (talk) 14:06, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
I agree with Mglovesfun. bd2412 T 23:01, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Striking: Mglovesfun replaced the {{rfv-sense}} tag with {{rfd-redundant}} on 3 February and opened an RFD discussion, though he did not comment here about it. (He removed the sense on 26 April after no one commented in the RFD discussion. He or someone else later removed the RFD discussion without archiving.) —RuakhTALK 14:38, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
