Thayer's Expanded Definition

γένημα, γενήματος, τό (from γίνομαι), a form supported by the best manuscripts in Matthew 26:29; Mark 14:25; Luke 12:18; Luke 22:18; 2 Corinthians 9:10, and therefore adopted by T (see his Proleg., p. 79) Tr (L WH (see WH's Appendix, p. 148 and below)), printed by Griesbach only in Luke 12:18; 2 Corinthians 9:10, but given by no grammarian, and therefore attributed by Fritzsche (on Mark, p. 619f) to the carelessness of transcribers — for Rec. (but in Luke, the passage cited Rst reads γενημ.) γέννημα, which see In Mark 14:25 Lachmann has retained the common reading; (and in Luke 12:18 Tr text WH have σῖτον. In Ezekiel 36:30 manuscripts A B read γενήματα).

STRONGS NT 1081: γέννημα γέννημα, γεννήματος, τό (from γεννάω), that which has been begotten or born;

a. as in the earlier Greek writings from Sophocles down, the offspring, progeny, of men or of animals: ἐχιδνῶν, Matthew 3:7; Matthew 12:34; Matthew 23:33; Luke 3:7; (γυναικῶν, Sir. 10:18).

b. from Polybius (1, 71, 1 etc.) on (cf. Winers Grammar, 23), the fruits of the earth, products of agriculture (in the Sept. often γεννήματα τῆς γῆς): Luke 12:18 (where Tr (txt. WH) τόν σῖτον); τῆς ἀμπέλου, Matthew 26:29; Mark 14:25; Luke 22:18; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 286. Metaphorically, fruit, reward, profit: τῆς δικαιοσύνης, 2 Corinthians 9:10 (Hosea 10:12; τῆς σοφίας, Sir. 1:17 Sir. 6:19). Further, see γένημα.
