1: ἁρπάζω
(Strong's #726 — Verb — harpazo — har-pad'-zo )

"to snatch or catch away," is said of the act of the Spirit of the Lord in regard to Philip in Acts 8:39 ; of Paul in being "caught" up to paradise, 2 Corinthians 12:2,4 ; of the Rapture of the saints at the return of the Lord, 1 Thessalonians 4:17 ; of the rapture of the man child in the vision of Revelation 12:5 . This verb conveys the idea of force suddenly exercised, as in Matthew 11:12 , "take (it) by force;" Matthew 12:29 , "spoil" (some mss. have diarpazo here); in Matthew 13:19 , RV, "snatcheth;" for forceful seizure, see also John 6:15 ; 10:12,28,29 ; Acts 23:10 ; in Jude 1:23 , RV , "snatching." See PLUCK , PULL , SNATCH , TAKE (by force).
