Endeavor:

en-de'-ver:

The sense of this word has suffered weakening since the time of the King James Version. Then it implied utmost exertion and success; now rather forlorn hope and possible failure. Thus the Revised Version (British and American) reads "giving diligence," "give diligence," for the King James Version "endeavoring," "endeavor," in Eph 4:3; 2Pe 1:15, respectively; but "endeavored" is suffered to remain in 1Th 2:17 (spoudazo, "hasten," "exert oneself"). Compare also Ac 16:10, the King James Version "endeavored," the Revised Version (British and American) "sought" (Greek zeteo, "seek").

Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4704 Greek: spoudazo

Endeavor:

"to make haste, to be zealous," and hence, "to be diligent," is rendered "endeavoring" in Eph 4:3, AV; RV, "giving diligence." In 2Pe 1:15, AV, "endeavor," RV, "give diligence." Both have "endeavored" in 1Th 2:17.
See DILIGENCE.

2 Strong's Number: g2212 Greek: zeteo

Endeavor:

"to seek after," is translated "endeavor" in Act 16:10, AV, RV, "sought."
See ABOUT (to be), DESIRE, INQUIRE, SEEK.
