DECEASE . The Gr. word exodos (‘exodus,’ ‘outgoing’) is translated ‘decease’ in Luke 9:31 and 2 Peter 1:15 , the meaning being departure out of the world. In this sense the Gr. word is used also in Wis 3:2 ; Wis 7:6 , Sir 38:23 . The opposite, eisodos , is used of the ‘coming’ of Christ. The only other occurrence of the Gr. exodos in NT is in Hebrews 11:22 , of the Exodus from Egypt (AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RV [Note: Revised Version.] ‘departure’).
