Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
αἰτία aitía, ahee-tee'-a; from the same as G154; a cause (as if asked for), i.e. (logical) reason (motive, matter), (legal) crime (alleged or proved):—accusation, case, cause, crime, fault, (wh-)ere(-fore).
STRONGS NT 156: αἰτία
αἰτία, -ας, ;
1. cause, reason: Acts 10:21; Acts 22:24; Acts 28:20; κατὰ πᾶσαν αἰτίαν for every cause, Matthew 19:3; δἰ ἥν αἰτίαν for which cause, wherefore, Luke 8:47; 2 Timothy 1:6, 12; Titus 1:13; Hebrews 2:11; cf. Grimm on 2 Macc. 4:28.
2. cause for which one is worthy of punishment; crime of which one is accused: Matthew 27:37; Mark 15:26; John 18:38; John 19:4 [6; Acts 23:28]; αἰτία θανάτου [A. V. cause of death] crime deserving the punishment of death, Acts 13:28; Acts 28:18.
3. charge of crime, accusation: Acts 25:18, 27. (All these meanings are in secular writings also; [but Liddell and Scott now make meaning 3 the primary one].)
In Matthew 19:10 the words εἰ οὕτως ἐστὶν αἰτία τοῦ ἀνθρώπου μετὰ τῆς γυναικός find a simple explanation in a Latinism (causa equivalent to res: si ita res se habet, etc.) if the case of the man with his wife is so.
