γάρ (γε, ἄρα),

causal Conj., used alone or with other Particles.

Abbott-Smith Manual Greek Lexicon of the New Testament

γάρ ,

co-ordinating particle, contr. of γε ἄρα ,

verily then, hence, in truth, indeed, yea, then, why, and when giving a reason or explanation, for, the usage in NT being in general accord with that of cl.;

1. explicative and epexegetic: Matthew 4:18; Matthew 19:12, Mark 1:16; Mark 5:42; Mark 16:4, Luke 11:30, Romans 7:1, 1 Corinthians 16:5, al.

2. Conclusive, in questions, answers and exclamations: Matthew 9:5; Matthew 27:23, Luke 9:25; Luke 22:27, John 9:30, Acts 8:31; Acts 16:37; Acts 19:35, Romans 15:26, 1 Corinthians 9:10, Philippians 1:18 (Ellie., in l), 1 Thessalonians 2:20, al.

3. Causal: Matthew 1:21; Matthew 2:2; Matthew 2:5-6, Mark 1:22; Mark 9:6, Luke 1:15; Luke 1:18, John 2:25, Acts 2:25, Romans 1:9-11, 1 Corinthians 11:5, Revelation 1:3, al.; giving the reason for a command or prohibition, Matthew 2:20; Matthew 3:9, Romans 13:11, Colossians 3:3, 1 Thessalonians 4:3, al.; where the cause is contained in an interrog. statement, Luke 22:27, Romans 3:3; Romans 4:3, 1 Corinthians 10:29; καὶ γάρ , for also, Mark 10:45, Luke 6:32, 1 Corinthians 5:7, al.; id. as in cl. = etenim, where the καὶ loses its connective force (El., § 78, 6; Kühner3, ii, 854 f.), Mark 14:70, Luke 1:66; Luke 22:37, 2 Corinthians 13:4. The proper place of γάρ is after the first word in a clause, but in poets it often comes third or fourth, and so in late prose: 2 Corinthians 1:19. Yet "not the number but the nature of the word after which it stands is the point to be noticed" (v. Thayer, s.v.).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the ascensive force of καὶ γάρ , as in Romans 11:1, cf. P Passalacqua .9 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski .2, p. 54) φρόντισον οὖν , ὅπως μὴ ἀδικηθῆι ὁ ἄνθρωπος · καὶ γὰρ ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐστὶν ἐνταῦθα περὶ Π ., where Letronne (P Par p. 401) renders, ";aie soin qu’il ne soit fait aucun tort à cet homme; car, de plus, son père est employé ici auprès de P."; In P Oxy IV. 743.22 (B.C. 2) καὶ γὰρ ἐγὼ ὅλος διαπον [ο ]ῦμαι εἰ Ἕλενος χαλκοὺς ἀπόλε [σ ]εν , ";I am quite upset at Helenos’ loss of the money"; (Edd.), the same phrase seems to do little more than introduce a new subject. In P Flor III. 367.6 (iii/A.D.) καὶ γὰρ καὶ πολλάκις μου ἐπιστείλαντός σοι κτλ ., the locution introduces the ground of a complaint just conveyed in the mention of the addressee’s ἀπάνθρωποι . ἐπιστολαί . The ordinary uses of γάρ need not be illustrated, unless we give one example of the γάρ beginning an exposition of a matter just announced, where our idiom omits : thus P Rein 77 (? B.C. 141) h̔̓ν ̣άγ ̣κασμαι τ ̣η ̣̣ν ἐφ᾽ ὑμα ̣̑ς καταϕ ̣υγη ̣̣ν π [οι ]ήσασθ ̣αι ἵν ̣α τ ̣ύχω βοηθείας . Το ̣ῦ γα ̣̣ρ κτλ . (the statement of grievance follows).

[Supplemental from 1930 edition]

For γάρ , as in Mark 16:8, cf. P Amh II. 133.4 (early ii/A.D.), P Oxy IX. 1223.33 (late iv/A.D.).
