Dictionaries :: Fail

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g1587 Greek: ekleipo

Fail:

"to leave out" (ek, "out," leipo, "to leave"), used intransitively, means "to leave off, cease, fail;" it is said of the cessation of earthly life, Luk 16:9; of faith, Luk 22:32; of the light of the sun, Luk 23:45 (in the best mss.); of the years of Christ, Hbr 1:12.

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g1952 Greek: epileipo

Fail:

"not to suffice for a purpose" (epi, over), is said of insufficient time, in Hbr 11:32.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g4098 Greek: pipto

Fail:

"to fall," is used of the Law of God in its smallest detail, in the sense of losing its authority or ceasing to have force, Luk 16:17. In 1Cr 13:8 it is used of love (some mss. have ekpipto, "to fall off").
See FALL.

Notes:

(1) In 1Cr 13:8, katargeo, "to reduce to inactivity" (see ABOLISH), in the Passive Voice, "to be reduced to this condition, to be done away," is translated "shall fail," AV. This, however, misses the distinction between what has been previously said of love and what is here said of prophecies (see No. 3); the RV has "shall be done away;" so also as regards knowledge (same verse).

(2) In Hbr 12:15, hustereo, "to come behind, fall short, miss," is rendered "fail" in the AV, RV, "falleth short."

(3) In Luk 21:26, apopsucho, lit., "to breathe out life," hence, "to faint," is translated "hearts failing," in the AV, RV, "fainting."
See FAINT.

B-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g413 Greek: anekleiptos

Fail:

"unfailing" (a, negative, and A, No. 1), is rendered "that faileth not," in Luk 12:33. In a Greek document dated A.D. 42, some contractors undertake to provide "unfailing" heat for a bath during the current year (Moulton and Milligan, Vocab.).
