 en·join /ɪnˈʤɔɪn, ɛn-/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 2. Law To prohibit or restrain by a judicial order or decree; to put an injunction on.
    This is a suit to enjoin the defendants from disturbing the plaintiffs.   --Kent.
 Note:Enjoin has the force of pressing admonition with authority; as, a parent enjoins on his children the duty of obedience. But it has also the sense of command; as, the duties enjoined by God in the moral law. “This word is more authoritative than direct, and less imperious than command.”
