1: μέν
(Strong's #3303 — particle — men — men )

a conjunctive particle (originally a form of men, "verily, truly," found in Hebrews 6:14 ), usually related to an adversative conjunction or particle, like de, in the following clause, which is placed in opposition to it. Frequently it is untranslatable; sometimes it is rendered "indeed," e.g., Matthew 3:11 ; 13:32 ; 17:11 , RV (AV, "truly"); Matthew 20:23 ; 26:41 ; (some mss. have it in Mark 1:8 ); Mark 9:12 , RV (AV, "verily").

2: ἀληθής
(Strong's #227 — Adjective — alethes — al-ay-thace' )

"true," is rendered "indeed" in John 6:55 (twice), see RV marg.; some mss. have No. 3 here.

3: ἀληθῶς
(Strong's #230 — Adverb — alethos — al-ay-thoce' )

"truly" (from No. 2), is translated "indeed" in John 1:47 ; 4:42 ; 8:31 .

4: ὄντως
(Strong's #3689 — Adverb — ontos — on'-toce )

an adverb from on, the present participle of eimi, "to be," denotes "really, actually;" it is translated "indeed" in Mark 11:32 (RV, "verily"); Luke 24:34 ; John 8:36 ; 1 Corinthians 14:25 , RV (AV "of a truth"); 1 Timothy 5:3,5,16 ; 6:15 , RV, where some mss. have aionios, "eternal" (AV); in Galatians 3:21 , "verily."

5: καί
(Strong's #2532 1063 — Conjunction — kai gar — kahee )

signifies "and in fact," "for also" (kai, "and," or "even," or "also;" gar, "for;" gar always comes after the first word in the sentence); it is translated "For indeed" in the RV of Acts 19:40 ; 2 Corinthians 5:4 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:10 (AV, "and indeed"); AV and RV in Philippians 2:27 . This phrase has a confirmatory sense, rather than a modifying effect, e.g, Matthew 15:27 , RV, "for even," instead of the AV "yet;" the woman confirms that her own position as a Gentile "dog" brings privilege, "for indeed the dogs, etc."

6: οὐδέ
(Strong's #3761 1063 — Conjunction — oude gar — oo-deh' )

"for neither," is rendered "neither indeed" in Romans 8:7 .

7: ἀλλά
(Strong's #235 2532 — Conjunction — alla kai — al-lah' )

"but even," or "but also," is rendered "nay indeed" in 2 Corinthians 11:1 , RV (AV, "and indeed." RV marg., "but indeed").

8: καί
(Strong's #2532 — Conjunction — kai — kahee )

preceded by the particle ge, "at least, ever," is rendered "indeed" in Galatians 3:4 , RV (AV, "yet"). Kai alone is rendered "indeed" in Philippians 4:10 , RV (AV, "also").

9: εἰ μήτι
(Strong's #1509 — Conjunction — ei meti — i may tee )

"if not indeed," is rendered "unless indeed" in 2 Corinthians 13:5 , RV (AV, "except").
