Resource Toolbox
1: ἔσω
(Strong's #2080 — Adverb — eso — es'-o )

"within, inward," is used adjectivally in Romans 7:22 , "(the) inward (man);" 2 Corinthians 4:16 , with "man" expressed in the preceding clause, but not repeated in the original, "(our) inward (man)" (some mss. have esothen, "from within"); Ephesians 3:16 , RV, "(the) inward (man)" (AV, "inner"). See INNER , WITHIN.

2: ἔσωθεν
(Strong's #2081 — Adverb — esothen — es'-o-then )

is used in Luke 11:39 , as a noun with the article, "part" being understood, "(your) inward part;" in Matthew 7:15 it has its normal use as an adverb, "inwardly." See WITHIN.

Note: In Romans 2:29 the phrase en to krupto, lit., "in (the) secret, or hidden" ("part" being understood) is rendered "inwardly," said of a spiritual Jew, in contrast to the one who is merely naturally circumcised and so is one outwardly. See HIDE , SECRET.
