1: ἕκαστος
(Strong's #1538 — Adjective — hekastos — hek'-as-tos )

"each" or "every," is used of any number separately, either (a) as an adjective qualifying a noun, e.g., Luke 6:44 ; John 19:23 ; Hebrews 3:13 , where "day by day," is, lit., "according to each day;" or, more emphatically with heis, "one," in Matthew 26:22 ; Luke 4:40 ; 16:5 ; Acts 2:3,6 ; 20:31 ; 1 Corinthians 12:18 ; Ephesians 4:7,16 , RV, "each (several)," for AV, "every;" Colossians 4:6 ; 1 Thessalonians 2:11 ; 2 Thessalonians 1:3 ; (b) as a distributive pronoun, e.g., Acts 4:35 ; Romans 2:6 ; Galatians 6:4 ; in Philippians 2:4 , it is used in the plural; some mss. have it thus in Revelation 6:11 . The repetition in Hebrews 8:11 is noticeable, "every man" (i.e., everyone). Prefixed by the preposition ana, "apiece" (a colloquialism), it is used, with stress on the individuality, in Revelation 21:21 , of the gates of the heavenly city, "each one of the several," RV; in Ephesians 5:33 , preceded by kath' hena, "by one," it signifies "each (one) his own." The phrase hen kath' hen, lit., "one by one," is used in Revelation 4:8 , "each one of them."
