Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
βίος bíos, bee'-os; a primary word; life, i.e. (literally) the present state of existence; by implication, the means of livelihood:—good, life, living.
STRONGS NT 979: βίος
βίος, -ου, , [from Homer down];
a. life extensively, i. e. the period or course of life [see below and Trench, § xxvii.]: Luke 8:14; 1 Timothy 2:2; 2 Timothy 2:4; 1 John 2:16; 1 Peter 4:3 [Rec.].
b. (as often in Greek writings from Hesiod, Works, 230, 575; Herodotus, Xenophon) that by which life is sustained, resources, wealth [A. V. living]: Mark 12:44; Luke 8:43 [WH omits; Tr marginal reading brackets the clause]; Luke 15:12, 30; Luke 21:4; 1 John 3:17 [goods]. (For לֶחֶם in Proverbs 31:14 (Prov. 29:32).)
[Synonyms: βίος, ζωή: ζ. existence (having death as its antithesis); β. the period, means, manner, of existence. Hence the former is more naturally used of animals, the latter of men; cf. zoology, biography. N. T. usage exalts ζωή, and so tends to debase βίος. But see Bp. Lightfoot Ign. ad Romans 7.]
