(Strong's #3648 — Adjective — holokleros — hol-ok'-lay-ros )

"complete, sound in every part" (holos, "whole," kleros, "a lot," i.e., with all that has fallen by lot), is used ethically in 1 Thessalonians 5:23 , indicating that every grace present in Christ should be manifested in the believer; so James 1:4 . In the Sept. the word is used, e.g., of a "full" week, Leviticus 23:15; of altar stones unhewn, Deuteronomy 27:6; Joshua 8:31; of a "full-grown" vine tree, useless for work, Ezekiel 15:5; of the "sound" condition of a sheep, Zechariah 11:16 .

The corresponding noun holokleria is used in Acts 3:16 , "perfect soundness." The synonymous word teleios, used also in James 1:4 , "perfect," indicates the development of every grace into maturity.

The Heb. shalom, "peace," is derived from a root meaning "wholeness." See, e.g., Isaiah 42:19 , marg., "made perfect," for text, "at peace;" cp. 26:3. Cp. also Colossians 1:28 with 2 Peter 3:14 .
