Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἐπεί epeí, ep-i'; from G1909 and G1487; thereupon, i.e. since (of time or cause):—because, else, for that (then, -asmuch as), otherwise, seeing that, since, when.
ἐπεί, [from temporal ἐπί and εἰ, literally, thereupon when; Curtius, Erläut. etc., p. 182; cf. Etym. Magn. 356, 7], conjunction, (Latin cum), when, since [cf. Winer's Grammar, § 53, 1]; used:
1. of time, after; so once in the N. T.: Luke 7:1 (where L T Tr text WH text ἐπειδή).
2. of cause, etc., since, seeing that, because: Matthew 18:32; [Matthew 21:46 T Tr WH]; Matthew 27:6; Mark 15:42; Luke 1:34; John 13:29; John 19:31; 1 Corinthians 14:12; 2 Corinthians 11:18; 2 Corinthians 13:3; Hebrews 5:2, 11; Hebrews 6:13; Hebrews 9:17; Hebrews 11:11; ἐπεὶ οὖν since then, Hebrews 2:14; Hebrews 4:6. Agreeably to a very common abbreviation of speech, we must often supply in thought between ἐπεί and the proposition depending upon it some such phrase as if it is (or were) otherwise; so that the particle, although retaining the force of since, is yet to be rendered otherwise, else, or for then (German sonst); so in Romans 11:6, 22; Hebrews 9:26; ἐπεὶ ἄρα, 1 Corinthians 5:10; 1 Corinthians 7:14, [cf. Winer's Grammar § 53, 8 a.]; ἐπεί alone before a question [cf. Winers Grammar 480 (447); Buttmann, 233 (200)]: Romans 3:6; 1 Corinthians 14:16; 1 Corinthians 15:29; Hebrews 10:2; (4 Macc. 1:33; 2:7, 19; 6:34 (4 Macc. 6:35); 4 Macc. 7:21; 8:8). Cf. Matthiae § 618; [Buttmann § 149, 5].
