STRONGS NT 1451: ἐγγύς
ἐγγύς, adverb, (from ἐν and γυῖον [limb, hand], at hand; [but rather allied with ἄγχι, ἄγχω, anxious, anguish, etc.; see Curtius § 166; Vanicek p.22]), [from Homer down], Sept. for קָרוֹב; near;
1. of place and postition;
a. proper: absolute John 19:42, [cf. also John 19:20 G L T Tr WH (but see below)]; with genitive (Matthiae § 339, 1 p. 812; Winer's Grammar 195 (183); [471 (439); Buttmann § 132, 24]), Luke 19:11; John 3:23; John 6:19, 23; John 11:18, 54; John 19:20 [Rec., but see above]; Acts 1:12; with dative (Matthiae § 386, 6; Kuhner § 423, 13; [Jelf § 592, 2]), Acts 9:38; Acts 27:8.
b. tropically; οἱ ἐγγύς, those who are near of access to God i. e. Jews, and οἱ μακράν, those who are alien from the true God and the blessings of the theocracy, i. e. Gentiles: Eph. 2:17 (cf. Isa. 57:19); ἐγγὺς γίνεσθαι, to be brought near, namely to the blessings of the kingdom of God, Eph. 2:13, (so with the Rabbins not infrequently to make nigh is equivalent to to make a proselyte, cf. Wetstein at the passage; [Schöttgen, Horae etc. 1:761f; Valck. Schol. 1:363]); ἐγγύς σου τὸ ῥῆμά ἐστιν, near thee i. e. at hand, already, as it were, in thy mind, Romans 10:8 from Deut. 30:14, [cf. Buttmann § 129, 11; Winer's Grammar 465 (434)].
2. of time; concerning things imminent and soon to come to pass: Matthew 24:32; Matthew 26:18; Mark 13:28; Luke 21:30, 31; John 2:13; John 6:4; John 7:2; John 11:55; Revelation 1:3; Revelation 22:10; of the near advent of persons: κύριος ἐγγύς, of Christ's return from heaven, Philippians 4:5 (in another sense, of God in Psalm 144:18 (Psalm 145:18)); with the addition ἐπὶ θύραις, at the door, Matthew 24:33; Mark 13:29; ἐγγὺς κατάρας, near to being cursed, Hebrews 6:8; ἀφανισμοῦ, soon to vanish, Hebrews 8:13.
