Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g3650 Greek: holos


"whole," is rendered "altogether" in Jhn 9:34. It is sometimes subjoined to an adjective or a verb, as in this case, to show that the idea coveyed by the adjective or verb belongs to the whole person or thing referred to. So here, lit., "thou wast altogether (i.e., completely) born in sins." Cp. Mat 13:33, RV; Luk 11:36; 13:21; Jhn 13:10, RV (rendered "every whit").

B-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g3843 Greek: pantos


from pas, "all," is translated in various ways. The rendering "altogether" is found only in 1Cr 5:10 (where the RV margin gives the alternative meaning, "not at all meaning the fornicators of this world") and 1Cr 9:10 (marg., "doubtless"). The other renderings are, in Luk 4:23, "doubtless" (AV, "surely"); in Act 18:21, "by all means," (AV, "only"); so in 1Cr 9:22, both RV and AV; in Act 21:22, "certainly" (AV, "needs," which does not give an accurate meaning); in Act 28:4, "no doubt;" in Rom 3:9, "in no wise" (lit., "not at all"), so in 1Cr 16:12. In Act 26:29 the AV has given a misleading rendering in the phrase "both almost and altogether;" there is no Greek word here which means "altogether;" the RV corrects to "whether with little or with much."
See ALL.

B-2 Adverb Strong's Number: g3650 Greek: holos


denotes "altogether or actually, or assuredly."
See ACTUALLY, and ALL, B, No. 1.


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.
