1 Strong's Number: g1590 Greek: ekluo



(a) "to loose, release" (ek, "out," luo, "to loose");

(b) "to unloose," as a bow-string, "to relax," and so, "to enfeeble," and is used in the Passive Voice with the significance "to be faint, grow weary,"

(1) of the body, Mat 15:32; (some mss. have it in Mat 9:36); Mar 8:3;

(2) of the soul, Gal 6:9 (last clause), in discharging responsibilities in obedience to the Lord; in Hbr 12:3, of becoming weary in the strife against sin; in Hbr 12:5, under the chastening hand of God. It expresses the opposite of anazonnumi, "to gird up," 1Pe 1:13.

"to lack courage, lose heart, be fainthearted" (en, "in," kakos, "base"), is said of prayer, Luk 18:1; of Gospel ministry, 2Cr 4:1, 16; of the effect of tribulation, Eph 3:13; as to well doing, 2Th 3:13, "be not weary" (AV marg., "faint not"). Some mss. have this word in Gal 6:9 (No. 1).

3 Strong's Number: g2577 Greek: kamno


primarily signified "to work;" then, as the effect of continued labor, "to be weary;" it is used in Hbr 12:3, of becoming "weary" (see also No. 1), RV, "wax not weary;" in Jam 5:15, of sickness; some mss. have it in Rev 2:3, AV, "hast (not) fainted," RV, "grown weary."

Note: For apopsucho, Luk 21:26, RV, see FAIL, Note (3).
