From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]:

Enjoin \En*join"\, verb (used with an object) [imp. & p. p. {Enjoined}; p. pr. & vb. n. {Enjoining}.] [F. enjoindre, L. injungere to join into, charge, enjoin; in + jungere to join. See {Join}, and cf. {Injunction}.]

1. To lay upon, as an order or command; to give an injunction to; to direct with authority; to order; to charge.

High matter thou enjoin'st me. --Milton.

I am enjoined by oath to observe three things. --Shak.

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." --Johnson.
