Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g4143 Greek: ploion

Ship, Shipping:

akin to pleo, "to sail," a boat or a ship, always rendered appropriately "boat" in the RV in the Gospels; "ship" in the Acts; elsewhere, Jam 3:4; Rev 8:9; 18:17 (in some mss.), 19.
See BOAT, No. 2.

2 Strong's Number: g4142 Greek: ploiarion

Ship, Shipping:

a diminutive form of No. 1, is translated "ship" in the AV of Mar 3:9; 4:36; Jhn 21:8; "(took) shipping" in Jhn 6:24, AV, RV "(got into the) boats."
See BOAT, No. 1.

3 Strong's Number: g3491 Greek: naus

Ship, Shipping:

denotes "a ship" (Lat. navis, Eng. "nautical," "naval," etc.), Act 27:41. Naus, in classical Greek the ordinary word for a "ship," survived in Hellenistic Greek only as a literary word, but disappeared from popular speech (Moulton, Proleg., p. 25). Blass (Philology of the Gospels, p. 186) thinks the solitary Lucan use of naus was due to a reminiscence of the Homeric phrase for beaching a "ship."

Note: For epibaino, Act 21:6, "we took ship," see TAKE, Note (16).


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
