Study Resources :: Dictionaries :: Desire (Noun and Verb), Desirous

Dictionaries :: Desire (Noun and Verb), Desirous

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g1939 Greek: epithumia

Desire (Noun and Verb), Desirous:

"a desire, craving, longing, mostly of evil desires," frequently translated "lust," is used in the following, of good "desires:" of the Lord's "wish" concerning the last Passover, Luk 22:15; of Paul's "desire" to be with Christ, Phl 1:23; of his "desire" to see the saints at Thessalonica again, 1Th 2:17.

With regard to evil "desires," in Col 3:5 the RV has "desire," for the AV, "concupiscence;" in 1Th 4:5, RV, "lust," for AV, "concupiscence;" there the preceding word pathos is translated "passion," RV, for AV, "lust" (see AFFECTION); also in Col 3:5 pathos and epithumia are associated, RV, "passion," for AV, "inordinate affection." Epithumia is combined with pathema, in Gal 5:24; for the AV, "affections and lusts," the RV has "passions, and the lusts thereof." Epithumia is the more comprehensive term, including all manner of "lusts and desires;" pathema denotes suffering; in the passage in Gal. (l.c.) the sufferings are those produced by yielding to the flesh; pathos points more to the evil state from which "lusts" spring. Cp. orexis, "lust," Rom 1:27.
See CONCUPISCENCE, LUST, and Trench, Syn. lxxxvii.

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g2107 Greek: eudokia

Desire (Noun and Verb), Desirous:

lit., "good pleasure" (eu, "well," dokeo, "to seem"), implies a gracious purpose, a good object being in view, with the idea of a resolve, showing the willingness with which the resolve is made. It is often translated "good pleasure," e.g., Eph 1:5, 9; Phl 2:13; in Phl 1:15, "good will;" in Rom 10:1, "desire," (marg., "good pleasure"); in 2Th 1:11, RV, "desire," AV and RV, marg., "good pleasure."

It is used of God in Mat 11:26 ("well pleasing," RV, for AV, "seemed good"); Luk 2:14, RV, "men in whom He is well pleased," lit., "men of good pleasure" (the construction is objective); Luk 10:21; Eph 1:5, 9; Phl 2:13.
See PLEASURE, SEEM, WILL.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g1972 Greek: epipothesis
