Study Resources :: Dictionaries :: Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell

Dictionaries :: Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell

Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g4431 Greek: ptosis

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"a fall" (akin to B, No. 1), is used

(a) literally, of the "overthrow of a building," Mat 7:27;

(b) metaphorically, Luk 2:34, of the spiritual "fall" of those in Israel who would reject Christ; the word "again" in the AV of the next clause is misleading; the "rising up" (RV) refers to those who would acknowledge and receive Him, a distinct class from those to whom the "fall" applies. The "fall" would be irretrievable, cp. (a); such a lapse as Peter's is not in view.

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g3900 Greek: paraptoma

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

primarily "a false step, a blunder" (para, "aside," pipto, "to fall"), then "a lapse from uprightness, a sin, a moral trespass, misdeed," is translated "fall" in Rom 11:11, 12, of the sin and "downfall" of Israel in their refusal to acknowledge God's claims and His Christ; by reason of this the offer of salvation was made to Gentiles; cp. ptaio, "to stumble," in ver. 11.
See FAULT, OFFENCE, SIN, TRESPASS.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g646 Greek: apostasia

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"a defection, revolt, apostasy," is used in the NT of religious apostasy; in Act 21:21, it is translated "to forsake," lit., "thou teachest apostasy from Moses." In 2Th 2:3 "the falling away" signifies apostasy from the faith. In papyri documents it is used politically of rebels.

Note: For "mighty fall," Rev 18:21, RV, see VIOLENCE.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g4098 Greek: pipto

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to fall," is used

(a) of descent, to "fall" down from, e.g., Mat 10:29; 13:4;

(b) of a lot, Act 1:26;

(c) of "falling" under judgment, Jam 5:12 (cp. Rev 18:2, RV);

(d) of persons in the act of prostration, to prostrate oneself, e.g., Mat 17:6; Jhn 18:6; Rev 1:17; in homage and workship, e.g., Mat 2:11; Mar 5:22; Rev 5:14; 19:4;

(e) of things, "falling" into ruin, or failing, e.g., Mat 7:25; Luk 16:17, RV, "fall," for AV, "fail;" Hbr 11:30;

(f) of "falling" in judgement upon persons, as of the sun's heat, Rev 7:16, RV, "strike," AV, "light;" of a mist and darkness, Act 13:11 (some mss. have epipipto);

(g) of persons, in "falling" morally or spiritually, Rom 14:4; 1Cr 10:8, 12; Rev 2:5 (some mss. have No. 3 here).
See FAIL, LIGHT (upon), STRIKE.

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g634 Greek: apopipto

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to fall from" (apo, "from"), is used in Act 9:18, of the scales which "fell" from the eyes of Saul of Tarsus.

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g1601 Greek: ekpipto

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to fall out of" (ek, "out," and No. 1), "is used in the NT, literally, of flowers that wither in the course of nature, Jam 1:11; 1Pe 1:24; of a ship not under control, Act 27:17, 26, 29, 32; of shackles loosed from a prisoner's wrist, Act 12:7; figuratively, of the Word of God (the expression of His purpose), which cannot "fall" away from the end to which it is set, Rom 9:6; of the believer who is warned lest he "fall" away from the course in which he has been confirmed by the Word of God, 2Pe 3:17." * [* From Notes on Galatians, by Hogg and Vine, p. 242.] So of those who seek to be justified by law, Gal 5:4, "ye are fallen away from grace." Some mss. have this verb in Mar 13:25, for No. 1; so in Rev 2:5.
See CAST, EFFECT.

B-4 Verb Strong's Number: g1706 Greek: empipto

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to fall into, or among" (en, "in," and No. 1), is used

(a) literally, Mat 12:11; Luk 6:39 (some mss. have No. 1 here); 10:36; some mss. have it in Luk 14:5;

(b) metaphorically, into condemnation, 1Ti 3:6; reproach, 1Ti 3:7; temptation and snare, 1Ti 6:9; the hands of God in judgment, Hbr 10:31.

Note: Some mss. have this verb in Jhn 13:25; Act 10:10; 13:11.
See PRESS.

B-6 Verb Strong's Number: g2667 Greek: katapipto

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to fall down" (kata, "down," and No. 1), is used in Luk 8:6 (in the best mss.); Act 26:14; 28:6.

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

B-8 Verb Strong's Number: g4045 Greek: peripipto

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to fall around" (peri, "around"), hence signifies to "fall" in with, or among, to light upon, come across, Luk 10:30, "among (robbers);" Act 27:41, AV, "falling into," RV, "lighting upon," a part of a shore; Jam 1:2, into temptation (i.e., trials).

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to come late, to be last, behind, inferior," is translated "falleth short" in Hbr 12:15, RV, for AV, "fail," and "fall short" in Rom 3:23, for AV, "come short," which, in view of the preceding "have," is ambiguous, and might be taken as a past tense.
See BEHIND.

B-11 Verb Strong's Number: g1911 Greek: epiballo

Fall, Fallen, Falling, Fell:

"to cast upon" (epi, "on," ballo, "to throw"), also signifies to "fall" to one's share, Luk 15:12, "that falleth." The phrase is frequently found in the papyri documents as a technical formula.
See CAST, A, No. 7.

Some would render the word (it is a medical term) "swollen," (as connected with a form of the verb pimpremi, "to burn"), indicating the condition of the body of certain suicides.

(8) In Act 20:9, AV, kataphero, "to bear down," is translated "being fallen into" (RV, "borne down"), and then "he sunk down" (RV, ditto), the first of gradual oppression, the second (the aorist tense) of momentary effect.
