Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ὥσπερ hṓsper, hoce'-per; from G5613 and G4007; just as, i.e. exactly like:—(even, like) as.
ὥσπερ ((cf. Tdf. Proleg., p. 110); from ὡς and the enclitic particle περ, which, "in its usual way, augments and brings out the force of ὡς Klotz ad Devar. 2:2, p. 768; see περ), adverb (from Homer down), just as, even as;
a. in a protasis with a finite verb, and followed by οὕτως or οὕτως καί in the apodosis (cf. Winer's Grammar, §§ 53, 5; 60, 5): Matthew 12:40; Matthew 13:40; Matthew 24:27, 37f, 38 (L T Tr (cf. ὡς at the beginning) WH ὡς); Luke 17:24; John 5:21, 26; Romans 5:19, 21; Romans 6:4, 19; Romans 11:30; 1 Corinthians 11:12; 1 Corinthians 15:22; 1 Corinthians 16:1; 2 Corinthians 1:7 (here L T Tr WH ὡς); Galatians 4:29; Ephesians 5:24 (L T Tr WH ὡς); James 2:26; ὥσπερ... ἵνα καί ((cf. Winers Grammar, § 43, 5 a.; Buttmann, 241 (208); cf. ἵνα, II. 4 b.)), 2 Corinthians 8:7; εὐλογίαν... ἑτοίμην εἶναι (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 44, 1 c.) οὕτως ὡς ἐυλογινα καί μή ὥσπερ etc. 'that your bounty might so be ready as a matter of bounty and not as if' etc. 2 Corinthians 9:5 (but only Rec. reads ὥσπερ, and even so the example does not strictly belong under this entry); the apodosis which should have been introduced by οὕτως is lacking (Winers Grammar, § 64, 7 b.; p. 569 (530); cf. Buttmann, § 151, 12 and 23 g.): Romans 5:12 (here what Paul subjoined in Romans 5:13f to prove the truth of his statement πάντες ἥμαρτον, prevented him from adding the apodosis, which had it corresponded accurately to the terms of the protasis would have run as follows: οὕτω καί δἰ ἑνός ἀνθρώπου δικαιοσύνη εἰς τόν κόσμον εἰσῆλθε καί διά τῆς δικαιοσύνης ζωή. Καί οὕτως εἰς πάντας ἀνθρώπους ζωή διελεύσεται, ἐφ' πάντες δικαιωθήσονται; this thought he unfolds in verse 15ff in another form); Matthew 25:14 (here the extended details of the parable caused the writer to forget the apodosis which he had in mind at the beginning; (cf. ὡς, I. 4 c.)).
b. it stands in close relation to what precedes: Matthew 5:48 (L T Tr WH ὡς); Matthew 6:2, 5 (L T Tr WH ὡς), Matthew 6:7, 16 (L T Tr WH ὡς); Matthew 20:28; 25:32; Acts 3:17; Acts 11:15; 1 Corinthians 8:5; 1 Thessalonians 5:3; Hebrews 4:10; Hebrews 7:27; Hebrews 9:25; Revelation 10:3; ὥσπερ γέγραπται, 1 Corinthians 10:7 L T Tr WH; εἰμί ὥσπερ τίς, to be of one's sort or class (not quite identical in meaning with ὡς or ὡσεί τίς, to be like one (cf. Bengel at the passage)), Luke 18:11 (but L Tr WH marginal reading ὡς); γίνομαι, Acts 2:2 (the genitive is apparently not to be explained by the omission of ἦχος, but rather as the genitive absolute: just as when a mighty wind blows, i. e. just as a sound is made when a mighty wind blows (R. V. as of the rushing of a mighty wind)); ἔστω σοι ὧπερ ἐθνικός κτλ., let him be regarded by thee as belonging to the number of etc. Matthew 18:17.
