STRONGS NT 966: Βηθσαϊδά
Βηθσαϊδά [WH -σαιδά; see Ι, ι] and (Matthew 11:21 R G T WH) -δάν, , indeclinable but with accusative [which may, however, be only the alternate form just given; cf. WH's Appendix, p. 160] Βηθσαϊδάν [Buttmann, 17 (16f); Winer's Grammar 61 (60); Tdf. Proleg., p. 119f), (Syriac Hunting/Fishing House in Syriac i. e. house or place of hunting or fishing), Bethsaida;
1. a small city (πόλις, John 1:44 (John 1:45)) or a village (κώμη Mark 8:22, 23) on the western shore of the Lake of Gennesaret: John 1:44 (45); Matthew 11:21; Mark 6:45; Luke 10:13 [here L marginal reading Tr marginal reading Βηδσαϊδά; cf. Tdf. Proleg. as above]; John 12:21 (where τῆς Γαλιλαίας is added).
2. a village in lower Gaulanitis on the eastern shore of Lake Gennesaret, not far from the place where the Jordan empties into it. Philip the tetrarch so increased its population that it was reckoned as a city, and was called Julius in honor of Julia, the daughter of the emperor Augustus (Josephus, Antiquities 18, 2, 1; Pliny, h. n. 5, 15). Many think that this city is referred to in Luke 9:10, on account of Mark 6:32, 45; John 6:1; others that the Evangelists disagree. Cf. Winers RWB under the word; Raumer, p. 122f; [BB. DD. under the word.
3. In John 5:2 Lachmann marginal reading WH marginal reading read Βηθσαϊδά; see under the word Βηθεσδά.]
