STRONGS G227:
ἀληθής, -ές (α privative and λήθω, λαθεῖν [λανθάνω], τὸ λῆθος — cf. ἀμαθής; literally, not hidden, unconcealed) [from Homer down];
1. true: John 4:18; John 10:41; John 19:35; 1 John 2:8, 27; Acts 12:9 (an actual occurrence, opposed to ὅραμα), Philippians 4:8; μαρτυρία, John 5:31; John 8:13f, 17; John 21:24; 3 John 1:12; Titus 1:13; κρίσις, just, John 8:16 (L T Tr WH ἀληθινή); παροιμία, 2 Peter 2:22; χάρις, grace which can be trusted, 1 Peter 5:12.
2. loving the truth, speaking the truth, truthful: Matthew 22:16; Mark 12:14; John 7:18; 2 Corinthians 6:8 (opposed to πλάνος); of God, John 3:33; John 8:26; Romans 3:4 (opposed to ψεύστης).
3. equivalent to ἀληθινός, 1: John 6:55 (L T Tr WH; for Rec. ἀληθῶς), as in Wis. 12:27, where ἀληθὴς θεός is contrasted with οὃς ἐδόκουν θεούς. Cf. Rückert, Abendmahl, p. 266f.
