πῦρ pŷr, poor; a primary word; "fire" (literally or figuratively, specially, lightning):—fiery, fire.
STRONGS NT 4442: πῦρ
πῦρ, genitive πυρός, τό (probably from Sanskrit pu, 'to purify' (cf. German fever); Vanicek, p. 541; Curtius, § 385), from Homer down; Hebrew אֵשׁ; fire: Matthew 3:10, 12; Matthew 7:19; Matthew 17:15; Mark 9:22; Luke 3:9, 17; Luke 9:54; John 15:6; Acts 2:19; Acts 28:5; 1 Corinthians 3:13; Hebrews 11:34; James 3:5; James 5:3; Revelation 8:5, 7; Revelation 9:17, 18; Revelation 11:5; Revelation 13:13; Revelation 14:18; Revelation 15:2; Revelation 16:8; Revelation 20:9; ά῾πτειν πῦρ, to kindle a fire, Luke 22:55 (T Tr text WH περιαψάντων); ἔβρεξε πῦρ καί θεῖον, Luke 17:29; κατακαίειν τί ἐν (T omits; WH brackets ἐν) πυρί, Revelation 17:16; Revelation 18:8; καίομαι πυρί, Matthew 13:40 (R L T WH κατακαίεται); Hebrews 12:18 (Winer's Grammar, § 31, 7 d.); Revelation 8:8; Revelation 21:8; φλόξ πυρός, a fiery flame or flame of fire, Acts 7:30; 2 Thessalonians 1:8 L text Tr text; Hebrews 1:7; Revelation 1:14; Revelation 2:18; Revelation 19:12 (Exodus 3:2, the Alex. manuscript; Isaiah 29:6); πῦρ φλογός, a flaming fire or fire of flame, 2 Thessalonians 1:8 R G L marginal reading T Tr marginal reading WH (Exodus 3:2, the Vaticanus manuscript; Sir. 45:19); λαμπάδες πυρός, lamps of fire, Revelation 4:5; στῦλοι πυρός, Revelation 10:1; ἄνθρακες πυρός coals of fire, Romans 12:20 (see ἄνθραξ); γλῶσσαι ὡσεί πυρός, which had the shape of little flames, Acts 2:3; δοκιμάζειν διά πυρός, 1 Peter 1:7; πυροῦσθαι (see πυρόω, b.) ἐκ πυρός, Revelation 3:18; ὡς διά πυρός, as one who in a conflagration has escaped through the fire not uninjured, i. e. dropping the figure, not without damage, 1 Corinthians 3:15; מֵאֵשׁ מֻצָּל, Zechariah 3:2, cf. Amos 4:11. of the fire of hell we find the following expressions — which are to be taken either tropically (of the extreme penal torments which the wicked are to undergo after their life on earth; so in the discourses of Jesus), or literally (so apparently in the Apocalypse): τό πῦρ, Mark 9:44, 46,(T WH omit; Tr brackets both verses),48; τό πῦρ τό αἰώνιον, Matthew 18:8; Matthew 25:41, cf. 4 Macc. 12:12; ἄσβεστον, Mark 9:43, 45 (G T Tr WH omit; L brackets the clause); πυρός αἰωνίου δίκην ὑπέχειν, Jude 1:7; γηννα τοῦ πυρός, Matthew 5:22; Matthew 18:9; Mark 9:47 (R G Tr brackets); κάμινος τοῦ πυρός, Matthew 13:42, 50 (Daniel 3:6); λίμνη τοῦ πυρός, Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:10, 14, 15; πυρί τηρεῖσθαι, 2 Peter 3:7; βασανισθῆναι ἐν πυρί, Revelation 14:10 (cf. Luke 16:24); βαπτίζειν τινα πυρί (see βαπτίζω, II. b. bb.), Matthew 3:11; Luke 3:16. the tongue is called πῦρ, as though both itself on fire and setting other things on fire, partly by reason of the fiery spirit which governs it, partly by reason of the destructive power it exercises, James 3:6; since fire disorganizes and sunders things joined together and compact, it is used to symbolize dissension, Luke 12:49. Metaphorical expressions: ἐκ πυρός ἁρπάζειν, to snatch from danger of destruction, Jude 1:23; πυρί ἁλίζεσθαι (see ἁλίζω), Mark 9:49; ζῆλος πυρός, fiery, burning anger (see ζῆλος, 1), Hebrews 10:27 (πῦρ ζήλου, Zephaniah 1:18; Zephaniah 3:8); God is called πῦρ καταναλίσκον, as one who when angry visits the obdurate with penal destruction, Hebrews 12:29.
