STRONGS NT 2255: ἥμισυς
ἥμισυς, -εια, ; genitive ἡμίσους (Mark 6:23 [Sept. Exodus 25:9; etc.], for the uncontracted form ἡμισεος which is more common in the earlier and more elegant Greek writings [from Herodotus down]); neuter plural ἡμίση, Luke 19:8 R G, a form in use from Theophrastus down, for the earlier ἡμίσεα adopted by Lachmann (cf. Passow [also Liddell and Scott], under the word; Winer's Grammar § 9, 2 d.; ἡμίσεια in T Tr [ἡμίσια WH] seems due to a corruption of the copyists, see Stephanus Thesaurus iv., p. 170; Bttm. Ausf. Spr. i., p. 248; Alexander Buttmann (1873) in Studien und Kritiken for 1862, p. 194f; [N. T. Gram. 14 (13); Tdf. Proleg., p. 118; but especially WHs Appendix, p. 158]); Sept. for מַחֲצִית, much more often חֲצִי; half; it takes the gender and number of the annexed substantive (where τὸ ἥμισυ might have been expected): τὰ ἡμίση τῶν ὑπαρχόντων, Luke 19:8 (so Greek writings say ἥμισυς τοῦ βίου οἱ ἡμίσεις τῶν ἱππέων, see Passow, under the word; (Liddell and Scott, under the word, L 2; Kühner, § 405, 5 c.); τὰς ἡμίσεις τῶν δυνάμεων, 1 Macc. 3:34, 37); neuter τὸ ἥμισυ, substantively, the half; without the article a half: ἕως ἡμίσους τῆς βασιλείας μου (Esther 5:3; Esther 7:2), Mark 6:23; ἥμισυ καιροῦ, Revelation 12:14; as in classical Greek, καὶ ἥμισυ is added to cardinal numbers even where they are connected with masculine and feminine substantives, as τρεῖς ἡμέρας καὶ ἥμισυ, three days and a half, Revelation 11:9, 11 (ὀψωνεῖν δυοῖν δραχμῶν καὶ ἡμίσους, Ath. 6, p. 274 c.; δύο or ἑνὸς πήχεων καὶ ἡμίσους, Exodus 25:16; Exodus 26:16; Exodus 38:1 [Alex.]); with καὶ omitted: Revelation 11:9 Tdf. edition 7 (μυριάδων ἑπτὰ ἡμίσους, Plutarch, Mar. 34).
