Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g3077 Greek: lupe

Heavy, Heaviness:

"grief, sorrow," is rendered "heaviness" in the AV of Rom 9:2; 2Cr 2:1 (RV, "sorrow," in both places).

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g2726 Greek: katepheia

Heavy, Heaviness:

probably denotes a downcast look, expressive of sorrow; hence, "dejection, heaviness;" it is used in Jam 4:9.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g85 Greek: ademoneo

Heavy, Heaviness:

"to be troubled, much distressed," is used of the Lord's sorrow in Gethsemane, Mat 26:37; Mar 14:33, AV, "to be very heavy," RV, "to be sore troubled;" of Epaphroditus, because the saints at Philippi had received news of his sickness, Phl 2:26, AV, "was full of heaviness," RV, "was sore troubled."
See TROUBLE, B, No. 12.

Heavy, Heaviness:

"to distress, grieve" (akin to A, No. 1), is rendered "are in heaviness" in 1Pe 1:6, AV (RV, "have been put to grief"); here, as frequently, it is in the Passive Voice.

Heavy, Heaviness:

always in the Passive Voice in the NT, is rendered "were heavy" in Mat 26:43; Mar 14:40; Luk 9:32.
