ἅλυσις, or as it is commonly written ἅλυσις [see WH's Appendix, p. 144], -εως, , (from the α privative and λύω, because a chain is ἄλυτος, i. e., not to be loosed [others from the root val, and allied with εἱλέω, to restrain, ἁλίζω, to collect, crowd; Curtius, § 660; Vanicek, p. 898]), a chain, bond, by which the body, or any part of it (the hands, feet), is bound: Mark 5:3; Acts 21:33; Acts 28:20; Revelation 20:1; ἐν ἁλύσει in chains, a prisoner, Ephesians 6:20; οὐκ ἐπαισχύνθη τὴν ἅλ. μου he was not ashamed of my bonds, i. e., did not desert me because I was a prisoner, 2 Timothy 1:16, specifically used of a manacle or handcuff, the chain by which the hands are bound together [yet cf. Meyer on Mark as below; per contra especially Bp. Lightfoot on Philippians, p. 8]: Mark 5:4; [Luke 8:29]; Acts 12:6f (From Herodotus down.)
