1: κλίνη

(Strong's #2825 — Noun Neuter — kline — klee'-nay )

akin to klino, "to lean" (Eng., "recline, incline" etc.), "a bed," e.g., Mark 7:30 , also denotes a "couch" for reclining at meals, Mark 4:21 , or a "couch" for carrying the sick, Matthew 9:2,6 . The metaphorical phrase "to cast into a bed," Revelation 2:22 , signifies to afflict with disease (or possibly, to lay on a bier). In Mark 7:4 the AV curiously translates the word "tables" (marg., "beds"), RV, marg. only, "couches." See COUCH.

2: κλίνη

(Strong's #2825 — Noun Neuter — klinarion — klee'-nay )

a diminutive of No. 1, "a small bed," is used in Acts 5:15 . Some mss. have klinon. See also No. 4. See COUCH.

3: κοίτη

(Strong's #2845 — Noun Feminine — koite — koy'-tay )

primarily "a place for lying down" (connected with keimai, "to lie"), denotes a "bed," Luke 11:7; the marriage "bed," Hebrews 13:4; in Romans 13:13 , it is used of sexual intercourse. By metonymy, the cause standing for the effect, it denotes conception, Romans 9:10 .

4: κράββατος

(Strong's #2895 — Noun Masculine — krabbatos — krab'-bat-os )

a Macedonian word (Lat. grabatus), is "a somewhat mean bed, pallet, or mattress for the poor," Mark 2:4,9,11,12; 6:55; John 5:8-11; Acts 5:15; 9:33 . See also No. 2. See COUCH.

Note: The verb stronnuo or stronnumi, "to spread," signifies, in Acts 9:34 , "to make a bed;" elsewhere it has its usual meaning. See FURNISH , SPREAD.
