1: εὐκαιρέω

(Strong's #2119 — Verb — eukaireo — yoo-kahee-reh'-o )

"to have leisure or opportunity" (eu, "well," kairos, "a time or season"), is translated "they had ... leisure" in Mark 6:31; in Acts 17:21 , "spent their time" (RV, marg., "had leisure for"); in 1 Corinthians 16:12 , "he shall have opportunity," RV (AV, "... convenient time"). See CONVENIENT , OPPORTUNITY , SPEND. This verb differs from scholazo, "to have leisure;" it stresses the opportunity of doing something, whereas scholazo stresses the "leisure" for engaging in it e.g., 1 Corinthians 7:5 , "(that) ye may give yourselves to."
