Departing, Departure

Resource Toolbox
1: ἀνάλυσις
(Strong's #359 — Noun Feminine — analusis — an-al'-oo-sis )

"an unloosing" (as of things woven), "a dissolving into separate parts" (Eng., "analysis"), is once used of "departure from life," 2 Timothy 4:6 , where the metaphor is either nautical, from loosing from moorings (thus used in Greek poetry), or military, from breaking up an encampment; cp. kataluo in 2 Corinthians 5:1 (cp. DEPART, No. 16).

2: ἄφιξις
(Strong's #867 — Noun Feminine — aphixis — af'-ix-is )

most frequently "an arrival" (akin to aphikneomas, see COME), also signifies a "departure" (apo, "from," hikneomai, "to come:" etymologically, to come far enough, reach; cp. hikanos, "sufficient"), the "departure" being regarded in relation to the end in view. Thus Paul speaks of his "departing," Acts 20:29 .

3: ἔξοδος
(Strong's #1841 — Noun Masculine — exodos — ex'-od-os )
