KJV Translation Count — Total: 34x
The KJV translates Strong's G3196 in the following manner: member (34x).
  1. a member, limb: a member of the human body

    1. of bodies given up to criminal intercourse, because they are as it were members belonging to the harlot's body

Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
μέλος mélos, mel'-os; of uncertain affinity; a limb or part of the body:—member.
STRONGS NT 3196: μέλος
μέλος, μελους, τό (from Homer down), a member, limb: properly, a member of the human body, Romans 12:4; 1 Corinthians 12:12, 14, 18-20, 25; James 3:5; τά μελα τοῦ σώματος, 1 Corinthians 12:12, 22; μου, σου, ἡμῶν, ὑμῶν, Matthew 5:29; Romans 6:13, 19; Romans 7:5, 23; Colossians 3:5; James 3:6; James 4:1; πόρνης μέλη is said of bodies given up to criminal intercourse, because they are as it were members belonging to the harlot's body, 1 Corinthians 6:15. Since Christians are closely united by the bond of one and the same spirit both among themselves and with Christ as the head, their fellowship is likened to the body, and individual Christians are metaphorically, styled μέλη — now one of another, ἀλλήλων: Romans 12:5; Ephesians 4:25; Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 46, 7 [ET] (cf. Fritzsche, Commentary on Romans iii., p. 45) — now of the mystical body, i. e. the church: 1 Corinthians 12:27; Ephesians 5:30 (cf. Ephesians 4:16 WH marginal reading); τά σώματα of Christians are called μέλη, of Christ, because the body is the abode of the spirit of Christ and is consecrated to Christ's service, 1 Corinthians 6:15.
