1: ἀμελέω
(Strong's #272 — Verb — ameleo — am-el-eh'-o )

denotes (a) "to be careless, not to care" (a, negative, melei, "it is a care;" from melo, "to care, to be a care"), Matthew 22:5 , "made light of;" (b) "to be careless of, neglect," 1 Timothy 4:14 ; Hebrews 2:3 ; 8:9 , "I regarded (them) not." See LIGHT of (make), REGARD. (In the Sept., Jeremiah 4:17 ; 38:32 .)

2: παραθεωρέω
(Strong's #3865 — Verb — paratheoreo — par-ath-eh-o-reh'-o )

primarily, "to examine side by side, compare" (para, "beside," theoreo, "to look at"), hence, "to overlook, to neglect," is used in Acts 6:1 , of the "neglect" of widows in the daily ministration in Jerusalem.

Note: In 2 Peter 1:12 , some mss. have No. 1, hence the AV, "I will not be negligent;" the RV follows those which have the future tense of mello, "to be ready," See READY. For "neglect to hear" see HEAR , No. 7.
