STRONGS NT 993: Βοανεργές
Βοανεργές ([R G, so Suidas (ed. Gaisf. 751 a.); but] L T Tr WH Βοανηργές), Boanerges, Hebrew רֶגֶשׁ בֲּנֵי i. e. sons of thunder (as Mark himself explains it), [the name given by our Lord to James and John the sons of Zebedee]: Mark 3:17; בְּ pronounced Boa as Noabhyim for Nebhyim; see Lightfoot Horae Hebrew at the passage; רֶגֶשׁ, in Psalm 55:15 a tumultuous crowd, seems in Syriac to have signified thunder; so that the name Βοανηργές seems to denote fiery and destructive zeal that may be likened to a thunderstorm, and to make reference to the occurrence narrated in Luke 9:54. [Cf. Dr. James Morison's Commentary on Mark at the passage cited; Kautzsch, Gram. d. Biblical-Aram., p. 9.]
