Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g530 Greek: hapax

Once (At; for All):


(a) "once, one time," 2Cr 11:25; Hbr 9:7, 26, 27; 12:26, 27; in the phrase "once and again," lit., "once and twice," Phl 4:16; 1Th 2:18;

(b) "once for all," of what is of perpetual validity, not requiring repetition, Hbr 6:4; 9:28; 10:2; 1Pe 3:18; Jud 1:3, RV, "once for all" (AV, "once"); Jud 1:5 (ditto); in some mss. 1Pe 3:20 (so the AV).

2 Strong's Number: g2178 Greek: ephapax

Once (At; for All):

a strengthened form of No. 1 (epi, "upon"), signifies

(a) "once for all," Rom 6:10; Hbr 7:27, RV (AV, "once"); Hbr 9:12 (ditto); 10:10;

(b) "at once," 1Cr 15:6.

3 Strong's Number: g4218 Greek: pote

Once (At; for All):

denotes "once upon a time, formerly, sometime," e.g., Rom 7:9; Gal 1:23, 1st part, RV, "once" (AV, "in times past"); 2nd part, AV and RV, "once;" Gal 2:6, RV marg., "what they once were" (to be preferred to the text, "whatsoever they were"), the reference probably being to the association of the twelve Apostles with the Lord during His ministry on earth; upon this their partisans based their claim for the exclusive authority of these Apostles, which Paul vigorously repudiated; in Eph 5:8, RV, "once" (AV, "sometimes").

Note: In Luk 23:18, AV, pamplethei, denoting "with the whole multitude" (pas, "all," plethos, "a multitude"), is rendered "all at once," RV, "all together").


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.
