STRONGS NT 3306: μένω
μένω; imperfect ἔμενον; future μένω; 1 aorist ἔμεινα; pluperfect μεμενήκειν without augment (1 John 2:19; cf. ἐκβάλλω (and see Tdf. Proleg., p. 120f)); (from Homer down); the Sept. chiefly for עָמַד and קוּם, also for חִכָּה, יָשַׁב, etc.; to remain, abide;
I. intransitively; in reference:
1. to place;
a. properly, equivalent to Latin commoror, to sojourn, tarry: ἐν with the dative of place, Luke 8:27; Luke 10:7; John 7:9; John 11:6; Acts 20:15; Acts 27:31; Acts 28:30 (R G L); 2 Timothy 4:20; with adverbs of place: ἐκεῖ, Matthew 10:11; John 2:12; John 10:40; (John 11:54 WH Tr text); ὧδε, Matthew 26:38; Mark 14:34; παρά τίνι, with one, John 1:39(John 1:40); John 14:25; Acts 18:20 (R G); Acts 21:7; σύν τίνι, Luke 1:56; καθ' ἑαυτόν, dwell at his own House, Acts 28:16, cf. Acts 28:30. equivalent to tarry as a guest, lodge: ποῦ, John 1:38 (John 1:39); ἐν with the dative of place, Luke 19:5; Acts 9:43; παρά τίνι, in one's house, Acts 9:43; Acts 18:3; Acts 21:8; of tarrying for a night, μετά τίνος, σύν τίνι, Luke 24:29. equivalent to to be kept, to remain: dead bodies ἐπί τοῦ σταυροῦ, John 19:31; τό κλῆμα ἐν τῇ ἀμπέλῳ, John 15:4.

3. to State or Condition; to remain as one is, not to become another or different: with a predicate nominative μόνος, John 12:24; ἀσάλευτος, Acts 27:41; ἄγαμος, 1 Corinthians 7:11; πιστός, 2 Timothy 2:13; ἱερεύς, Hebrews 7:3; with adverbs, οὕτως, 1 Corinthians 7:40; ὡς κἀγώ, ibid. 8; ἐν with the dative of the state, ibid. 20, 24.
