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.
