Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g3565 Greek: numphe

Bride, Bridechamber, Bridegroom:

(Eng. "nymph") "a bride, or young wife," Jhn 3:29; Rev 18:23; 21:2, 9; 22:17, is probably connected with the Latin nubo, "to veil;" the "bride" was often adorned with embroidery and jewels (see Rev 21:2), and was led veiled from her home to the "bridegroom." Hence the secondary meaning of "daughter-in-law," Mat 10:35; Luk 12:53.
See DAUGHTER-IN-LAW. For the relationship between Christ and a local church, under this figure, see 2Cr 11:2; regarding the whole Church, Eph 5:23-32; Rev 22:17.

2 Strong's Number: g3566 Greek: numphios

Bride, Bridechamber, Bridegroom:

"a bridegroom," occurs fourteen times in the Gospels, and in Rev 18:23. "The friend of the bridegroom," Jhn 3:29, is distinct from "the sons of the bride-chamber" who were numerous. When John the Baptist speaks of "the friend of the Bridegroom," he uses language according to the customs of the Jews.

3 Strong's Number: g3567 Greek: numphon

Bride, Bridechamber, Bridegroom:


(a) "the room or dining hall in which the marriage ceremonies were held," Mat 22:10; some mss. have gamos, "a wedding," here;

(b) "the chamber containing the bridal bed," "the sons of the bride-chamber" being the friends of the bridegroom, who had the charge of providing what was necessary for the nuptials, Mat 9:15; Mar 2:19; Luk 5:34.


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.
