STRONGS G994:
βοάω, -ῶ; [imperfect ἐβόων, Acts 21:34 Rec.]; 1 aorist ἐβόησα; (βοή); from Homer down; in the Sept. mostly for קָרָא, זָעַק, צָעַק, to cry aloud, shout, (Latin boo);
1. to raise a cry: of joy, Galatians 4:27 (from Isaiah 54:1); of pain, Matthew 27:46 L marginal reading Tr WH; Acts 8:7.
2. to cry i. e. speak with a high, strong voice: Matthew 3:3, Mark 1:3, Luke 3:4, John 1:23 (all from Isaiah 40:3); Mark 15:34; Luke 9:38 (R G ἀναβ.); [Luke 18:38]; Acts 17:6; Acts 21:34 Rec.; Acts 25:24 (R G ἐπιβ.).
3. πρός τινα to cry to one for help, implore his aid: Luke 18:7 [T Tr WH αὐτῷ; cf. Winer's Grammar, 212 (199)], (1 Samuel 7:8; 1 Chronicles 5:20; Hosea 7:14, etc. for אֶל זָעַק). [Compare: ἀνα-, ἐπιβοάω.]
[Synonyms: βοδω, καλέω, κράζω, κραυγάζω: It is not uninstructive to notice that in classic usage καλεῖν denotes 'to cry out' for a purpose, to call; βοᾶν to cry out as a manifestation of feeling; κράζειν to cry out harshly, often of an inarticulate and brutish sound; thus καλεῖν suggests intelligence; βοᾶν sensibilities; κράζειν instincts; hence, βοᾶν especially a cry for help. κραυγάζειν, intensive of κράζω, denotes to cry coarsely, in contempt, etc. Cf. Schmidt ch. 3.]
