STRONGS NT 1653: ἐλεέω
ἐλεέω, ; future ἐλεήσω; 1 aorist ἠλέησα; passive, 1 aorist ἠλεήθην; 1 future ἐλεηθήσομαι; perfect participle ἠλεημένος; (ἔλεος); from Homer down; Sept. most frequently for חָנַן to be gracious, also for רִחַם to have mercy; several times for חָמַל to spare, and נִחַם to console; to have mercy on: τινά [Winer's Grammer 32, 1 b. α], to succor one afflicted or seeking aid, Matthew 9:27; Matthew 15:22; Matthew 17:15; Matthew 18:33; Matthew 20:30f; Mark 5:19 [here, by zeugma (Winer's Grammar § 66, 2 e.), the ὅσα is brought over with an adverbial force (Winer's Grammar 463 (431f.)), how]; Mark 10:47f; Luke 16:24; Luke 17:13; Luke 18:38f; Philippians 2:27; Jude 1:22 Rec.; absolutely to succor the afflicted, to bring help to the wretched, [A. V. to show mercy], Romans 12:8; passive to experience [A. V. obtain] mercy, Matthew 5:7. Specifically of God granting even to the unworthy favor, benefits, opportunities, and particularly salvation by Christ: Romans 9:15, 16 R G (see ἐλεάω), Romans 9:18; Romans 11:32; passive, Romans 11:30f; 1 Corinthians 7:25; 2 Corinthians 4:1; 1 Timothy 1:13, 16; 1 Peter 2:10.
[Synonyms: ἐλεέω, οἰκτείρω: ἐλ. to feel sympathy with the misery of another, especially such sympathy as manifests itself in act, less frequently in word; whereas οἰκτ. denotes the inward feeling of compassion which abides in the heart. A criminal begs ἔλεος of his judge; but hopeless suffering is often the object of οἰκτιρμός. Schmidt ch. 143. On the other hand, Fritzsche (Commentary on Romans volume 2 p. 315) makes οἰκτ. and its derivatives the stronger terms: ἐλ. the generic word for the feeling excited by another's misery; οἰκτ. the same, especially when it calls (or is suited to call) out exclamations and tears.]
