STRONGS NT 2270: ἡσυχάζω
ἡσυχάζω; 1 aorist ἡσύχασα; (ἥσυχος [equivalent to ἡσύχιος]); as in Greek writings from Aeschylus down, to keep quiet, i. e.
a. to rest, to cease from labor: Luke 23:56.
b. to lead a quiet life, said of those who are not running hither and thither, but stay at home and mind their business: 1 Thessalonians 4:11.
c. to be silent, i. e. to say nothing, hold one's peace: Luke 14:4 (Luke 14:3); Acts 11:18; Acts 21:14, (Job 32:7; ἡσύχασαν καὶ οὐχ εὕροσαν λόγον, Nehemiah 5:8).
[Synonyms: ἠσυχάζειν, σιγᾶν, σιωπᾶν: ἡσ. describes a quiet condition in the general, inclusive of silence; σιγ. describes a mental condition and its manifestation, especially in speechlessness (silence from fear, grief, awe, etc.); σιωπ., the more external and physical term, denotes abstinence from speech, especially as antithetic to loquacity. Schmidt 1 chapter 9; 4 chapter 175.]
