Resource Toolbox
A — 1: ἀφανίζω
(Strong's #853 — Verb — aphanizo — af-an-id'-zo )

"to render unseen," is translated "vanisheth away" in James 4:14 (Passive Voice, lit., "is made to disappear"). See CONSUME , DISFIGURE , PERISH.

Note: In 1 Corinthians 13:8 , AV, katargeo, "to abolish," is rendered "it shall vanish away" (RV, "... be done away"). See ABOLISH.

B — 1: ἀφανισμός
(Strong's #854 — Noun Masculine — aphanismos — af-an-is-mos' )

a, negative, phaino, "to cause to appear" (akin to A), occurs in Hebrews 8:13 , RV, "(nigh unto) vanishing away;" the word is suggestive of abolition.

Note: In Luke 24:31 , the adjective aphantos (akin to A and B), "invisible," used with ginomai, "to become," and followed by apo, "from," with the plural personal pronoun, is rendered "He vanished out of their sight" (AV, marg., "He ceased to be seen of them"), lit., "He became invisible from them."
