Thayer's Expanded Definition

κραταιός, κραταιᾷ, κραταιόν (κράτος), the Sept. mostly for חָזָק, mighty: κραταιός χείρ τοῦ Θεοῦ, i. e. the power of God, 1 Peter 5:6; τοῦ κυρίου, Baruch 2:11; 1 Esdr. 8:46 (47), 60 (61), and often in the Sept. (In earlier Greek only poetic (Homer, others) for the more common κρατερός; but later, used in prose also (Plutarch, others).)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

That this ";poetic"; word also formed part of the common stock of the Κοινή is shown by its occurrence not only in the LXX and NT, but in the magic papyri, e.g. P Lond 121.422 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 98) θεοὶ κραταιοί, ib. .563 (= p. 102) ἐν φωτὶ κραταιῷ καὶ ἀφθάρτῳ, ib. .789 (= p. 109) ἐπεύχομαι τῇ δεσποίνῃ τοῦ παντὸς κόσμου, ἐπάκουσόν μου ἡ μόνη (= ι)μος ἡ κρατει (= αι).
