Helm, the apparatus by means of which a ship is steered. It includes, in large ships, the rudder, the tiller, and the wheel, and in small craft the two former only. The term helm is applied more particularly to the tiller; "starboard the helm" means "bring the tiller over to the right side of the ship." To "put the helm down" is to push the tiller to the lee side, so as to put the vessel about, or lay her to the windward.

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
Hebrews 4:12
