Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
θρηνέω thrēnéō, thray-neh'-o; from G2355; to bewail:—lament, mourn.
STRONGS NT 2354: θρηνέω
θρηνέω, -ῶ: imperfect ἐθρήνουν; future θρηνήσω; 1 aorist ἐθρήνησα; (θρῆνος, which see); from Homer down; Sept. for הֵילִיל, קונֵן, etc.;
1. to lament, to mourn: John 16:20; of the singers of dirges, [to wail], Matthew 11:17; Luke 7:32.
2. to bewail, deplore: τινά, Luke 23:27.
[On θρηνέω to lament, κόπτομαι to smite the breast in grief, λυπέομαι to be pained, saddened, πενθέω to mourn, cf. Trench § 65 and see κλαίω at the end; yet note that in classic Greek λυπ. is the most comprehesive word, designating every species of pain of body or soul; and that πενθέω expresses a self-contained grief, never violent in its manifestations; like our English word "mourn" it is associated by usage with the death of kindred, and like it used pregnantly to suggest that event. See Schmidt vol. 2 ch. 83.]
