STRONGS NT 1124: γραφή
γραφή, -ῆς, , (γράφω, cf. γλυφή and γλύφω);
a. a writing, thing written, [from Sophocles down]: πᾶσα γραφή every scripture namely, of the O. T., 2 Timothy 3:16; plural γραφαὶ ἅγιαι, holy scriptures, the sacred books (of the O. T.), Romans 1:2; προφητικαί, Romans 16:26; αἱ γραφαὶ τῶν προφητῶν, Matthew 26:56.
b. γραφή, the Scripture κατ’ ἐξοχήν, the holy scripture (of the O. T.), — and used to denote either the book itself, or its contents [some would restrict the singular γραφή always to a particular passage; see Bp. Lightfoot on Galatians 3:22]: John 7:38; John 10:35; Acts 8:32; Romans 4:3; Galatians 3:22; Galatians 4:30; James 2:8; 1 Peter 2:6; 2 Peter 1:20; also in plural αἱ γραφαί: Matthew 21:42; Matthew 26:54; Mark 14:49; Luke 24:27; John 5:39; Acts 17:2, 11; Acts 18:24, 28; 1 Corinthians 15:3f; once αἱ γραφαί comprehends also the books of the N.
