Hide, Hid, Hidden:

"to cover, conceal, keep secret" (Eng., "crypt," "cryptic," etc.), is used

(a) in its physical significance, e.g., Mat 5:14; 13:44; 25:18 (some mss. have No. 2);

(b) metaphorically, e.g., Mat 11:25 (some mss. have No. 2 here); 13:35, RV, "(things) hidden;" AV, "(things) which have been kept secret;" Luk 18:34; 19:42; Jhn 19:38, "secretly."

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g613 Greek: apokrupto

Hide, Hid, Hidden:

"to conceal from, to keep secret" (apo, "from," and No. 1), is used metaphorically, in Luk 10:21, of truths "hidden" from the wise and prudent and revealed to babes; 1Cr 2:7, of God's wisdom; Eph 3:9, of the mystery of the unsearchable riches of Christ, revealed through the Gospel; Col 1:26, of the mystery associated with the preceding.

signifies "to cover, conceal," so that no trace of it can be seen (hence somewhat distinct from No. 1): it is not translated "to hide" in the RV; in 2Cr 4:3 it is rendered "veiled," suitably continuing the subject of 3:13-18; in Jam 5:20, "shall hide," AV (RV, "shall cover").
