Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἁλίζω halízō, hal-id'-zo; from G251; to salt:—salt.
ἁλίζω: (ἅλς, ἁλός, salt); to salt, season with salt, sprinkle with salt; only the future passive is found in the N. T.: ἐν τίνι ἁλισθήσεται; by what means can its saltness be restored? Matthew 5:13; θυσία ἁλί ἁλισθήσεται, the sacrifice is sprinkled with salt and thus rendered acceptable to God, Mark 9:49 [R G L Tr text brackets] (Leviticus 2:13; Ezekiel 43:24; Josephus, Antiquities 3, 9, 1; cf. Knobel on Lev., p. 369f; Winers RWB under the word Salz; [BB. DD. under the word Salt]); πᾶς πυρὶ ἁλισθήσεται, every true Christian is rendered ripe for a holy and happy association with God in his kingdom by fire, i. e. by the pain of afflictions and trials, which if endured with constancy tend to purge and strengthen the soul, Mark 9:49.
But this extremely difficult passage is explained differently by others; [cf. Meyer, who also briefly reviews the history of its exposition].
(Used by the Sept., Aristotle [cf: Sophocles Lexicon); Ignatius ad Magnes. 10 [shorter form] ἁλίσθητε ἐν Χριστῷ, ἵνα μὴ διαφθαρῇ τις ἐν ὑμῖν.)
[Compare: συναλίζω — but see the word.]
