STRONGS NT 1656: ἔλεος
ἔλεος, -ου, , mercy: that of God toward sinners, Titus 3:5; ἔλεον λαμβάνειν, to receive i. e. experience, Hebrews 4:16; that of men: readiness to help those in trouble, Matthew 9:13 and Matthew 12:7 (from Hosea 6:6); Matthew 23:23. But in all these passages L T Tr WH have adopted the neuter form τὸ ἔλεος (which see), much more common in Hellenistic writings than the masculine ἔλεος, which is the only form in classic Greek [Sophocles (Lexicon, under the word) notes τὸ ἔλ. in Polybius 1, 88, 2; and Pape in Diodorus Siculus 3, 18 variant]. The Greek manuscripts of the O. T. also frequently waver between the two forms. Cf. [WHs Appendix, p. 158]; Winers Grammar, 66 (64); Buttmann, 22 (20).
