STRONGS NT 1618: ἐκτενής
ἐκτενής, -ές, (ἐκτείνω), properly, stretched out; figuratively, intent, earnest, assiduous: προσευχή, Acts 12:5 R G (εὐχή, Ignatius [interpolated] ad Eph. 10; δέησις κ. ἱκεσία, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 59, 2); ἀγάπη, 1 Peter 4:8. Neuter of the comparitive ἐκτενέστερον, as adverb, more intently, more earnestly, Luke 22:44 [L brackets WH reject the passage]. (ἐκτενὴς φίλος, Aeschylus suppl. 983; Polybius 22, 5, 4; then very often from Philo on; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 311.)
