1: σῴζω

(Strong's #4982 — Verb — sozo — sode'-zo )

"to save," is sometimes used of "healing" or "restoration to health," the latter in John 11:12 , RV, "he will recover," marg., "be saved" (AV, "he shall do well"). See HEAL , PRESERVE , SAVE , WHOLE.

2: ἀνανήφω

(Strong's #366 — Verb — ananepho — an-an-ay'-fo )

"to return to soberness," as from a state of delirium or drunkenness (ana, "back," or "again," nepho, "to be sober, to be wary"), is used in 2 Timothy 2:26 , "may recover themselves" (RV marg., "return to soberness," AV marg., "awake"), said of those who, opposing the truth through accepting perversions of it, fall into the snare of the Devil, becoming intoxicated with error; for these "recovery" is possible only by "repentance unto the knowledge of the truth." For a translation of the verse see CAPTIVE , B, No. 3.

Notes: (1) For "recovering of sight," Luke 4:18 , see SIGHT. (2) In Mark 16:18 , the phrase echo kalos, lit., "to have well," i.e., "to be well," is rendered "they shall recover."
