KJV Translation Count — Total: 152x
The KJV translates Strong's G281 in the following manner: verily (101x), amen (51x).
  1. firm

    1. metaph. faithful

  2. verily, amen

    1. at the beginning of a discourse - surely, truly, of a truth

    2. at the end - so it is, so be it, may it be fulfilled. It was a custom, which passed over from the synagogues to the Christian assemblies, that when he who had read or discoursed, had offered up solemn prayer to God, the others responded Amen, and thus made the substance of what was uttered their own.

      The word "amen" is a most remarkable word. It was transliterated directly from the Hebrew into the Greek of the New Testament, then into Latin and into English and many other languages, so that it is practically a universal word. It has been called the best known word in human speech. The word is directly related — in fact, almost identical — to the Hebrew word for "believe" (amam), or faithful. Thus, it came to mean "sure" or "truly", an expression of absolute trust and confidence. — HMM
Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀμήν amḗn, am-ane'; of Hebrew origin (H543); properly, firm, i.e. (figuratively) trustworthy; adverbially, surely (often as interjection, so be it):—amen, verily.
STRONGS NT 281: ἀμήν
ἀμήν, Hebrew אָמֵן;
1. verbal adjective (from אָמַן to prop; Niph. to be firm), firm, metaphorically, faithful: ἀμήν, Revelation 3:14 (where is added μάρτυς πιστὸς κ. ἀληθινός).
2. it came to be used as an adverb by which something is asserted or confirmed:
a. at the beginning of a discourse, surely, of a truth, truly; so frequent in the discourses of Christ in Matthew, Mark, and Luke: ἀμὴν λέγω ὑμῖν 'I solemnly declare unto you,' e. g. Matthew 5:18; Mark 3:28; Luke 4:24. The repetition of the word (ἀμὴν ἀμήν), employed by John alone in his Gospel (twenty-five times), has the force of a superlative, most assuredly: John 1:51 (John 1:52); John 3:3.
b. at the close of a sentence; so it is, so be it, may it be fulfilled (γένοιτο, the Sept. Numbers 5:22; Deuteronomy 27:15, etc.): Romans 1:25; Romans 9:5; Galatians 1:5; Ephesians 3:21; Philippians 4:20; 1 Timothy 1:17; Hebrews 13:21; 1 Peter 4:11; Revelation 1:6, and often; cf. Jeremiah 11:5; Jeremiah 35:6 (Jer. 28:6); 1 Kings 1:30. It was a custom, which passed over from the synagogues into the Christian assemblies, that when he who had read or discoursed had offered up a solemn prayer to God, the others in attendance responded Amen, and thus made the substance of what was uttered their own: 1 Corinthians 14:16 (τὸ ἀμήν, the well-known response Amen), cf. Numbers 5:22; Deuteronomy 27:15ff; Nehemiah 5:13; Nehemiah 8:6. 2 Corinthians 1:20 αἱ ἐπαγγελίαι... τὸ ναί, καὶ... τὸ ἀμήν, i. e. had shown themselves most sure. [Cf. B. D. under the word Amen.]
