Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀρκέω arkéō, ar-keh'-o; apparently a primary verb (but probably akin to G142 through the idea of raising a barrier); properly, to ward off, i.e. (by implication) to avail (figuratively, be satisfactory):—be content, be enough, suffice, be sufficient.
STRONGS NT 714: ἀρκέω
ἀρκέω, ; 1 aorist ἤρκεσα; [passive, present ἀρκοῦμαι]; 1 future ἀρκεσθήσομαι; to be possessed of unfailing strength; to be strong, to suffice, to be enough (as against any danger; hence, to defend, ward off, in Homer; [others make this the radical meaning, cf. Lat arceo; Curtius, § 7]): with the dative of person, Matthew 25:9; John 6:7; ἀρκεῖ σοι χάρις my grace is sufficient for thee, namely, to enable thee to bear the evil manfully; there is, therefore, no reason why thou shouldst ask for its removal, 2 Corinthians 12:9; impersonally, ἀρκεῖ ἡμῖν 'tis enough for us, we are content, John 14:8. Passive (as in Greek writings) to be satisfied, contented: τινί, with a thing, Luke 3:14; Hebrews 13:5; 1 Timothy 6:8; (2 Macc. 5:15); ἐπί τινι, 3 John 1:10. [Compare: ἐπαρκέω.]
