Usage examples for perturb

  1. Just as when you take away disturbing masses of metal from near a compass, it trembles to its true point, so when, by the discipline of which I have been speaking, there are swept away from either side of us the things that would perturb our judgment, there comes, as blessing and reward, a clear insight into that which it is our duty to do. – Expositions of Holy Scripture: Romans Corinthians (To II Corinthians, Chap.
