1: ἀγρός
(Strong's #68 — Noun Masculine — agros — ag-ros' )

denotes (a) "a field" (cp. Eng., "agriculture"), e.g., Matthew 6:28 ; (b) "the country," e.g., Mark 15:21 , or, in the plural, "country places, farms," Mark 5:14 ; 6:36,56 ; Luke 8:34 ; 9:12 ; (c) "a piece of ground," e.g., Mark 10:29 ; Acts 4:37 ; "a farm," Matthew 22:5 . See COUNTRY , FIELD , GROUND , LAND.

Note: For the synonymous word chora, "a country, land," see COUNTRY. Moulton and Milligan point out that agros is frequent in the Sept., and in the Synoptic Gospels, but that Luke uses chora especially, and that possibly agros was a favorite word with translators from Hebrew and Aramaic.
