STRONGS NT 1654: ἐλεημοσύνη
ἐλεημοσύνη, -ης, , (ἐλεήμων), Sept. for חֶסֶד and צְדָקָה (see δικαιοσύνη, 1 b.);
1. mercy, pity (Callimachus in Del. 152; Isaiah 38:18; Sir. 17:22 (Sir 17:24), etc.), especially as exhibited in giving alms, charity: Matthew 6:4; ποιεῖν ἐλεημοσύνην, to practise the virtue of mercy or beneficence, to show one's compassion, [A. V. do alms], (cf. the similar phrases δικαιοσύνην, ἀλήθειαν, etc. ποιεῖν), Matthew 6:1 Rec., 2, 3, (Sir. 7:10; Tobit 4:7; Tobit 12:8, etc.; for חֶסֶד עָשָׂה, Genesis 47:29); ἐλεημοσύνας, acts of beneficence, benefactions [cf. Winers Grammar, 176 (166); Buttmann, 77 (67)], Acts 10:2; εἴς τινα, Acts 24:17. Hence,
2. the benefaction itself, a donation to the poor, alms, (the German Almosen [and the English alms] being [alike] a corruption of the Greek word): ἐλεημοσύνην διδόναι [(Diogenes Laërtius 5, 17)], Luke 11:41; Luke 12:33; αἰτεῖν, Acts 3:2; λαμβάνειν, Acts 3:3; πρὸς τὴν ἐλεημοσ. for (the purpose of asking) alms, Acts 3:10; plural, Acts 9:36; Acts 10:4, 31.
