1. absolutely;

a. mighty in wealth and influence: 1 Corinthians 1:26; (Revelation 6:15 Rec.); οἱ δυνατοί, the chief men, Acts 25:5 (Josephus, b. j. 1, 12, 4 ἧκον Ἰουδαίων οἱ δυνατοί; Xenophon, Cyril 5, 4, 1; Thucydides 1, 89; Polybius 9, 23, 4). δυνατός, the preeminently mighty one, almighty God, Luke 1:49.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For δ. with a ";complementary"; infinitive, as in 2 Timothy 1:12, cf. P Magd 3.5 (B.C. 221), where in a lease it is laid down with reference to certain land—ἡ δυνατὴ σπαρῆναι ἕως Χοίαχ ι ̄, τὴν δὲ μὴ δυνατὴν σπαρῆναι ἕως ι ̄ τοῦ Χοίαχ. For other exx. of the infin. construction cf P Eleph 8.18 (iii/B.C.) οὗτος δὲ δυνατός ἐστιν εἰσενέγκαι καὶ ἔν [γυο ]ν ̣ [ ]κ ̣[ανό ]ν ̣, P Hib I. 78.15 (B.C. 244–3) ἐὰν δὲ μὴ δυνατὸς ἦσθα ἀπολῦσαι, P Giss I. 79ii. 4 (ii/A.D.) εἰ δυνατόν μ [οι ] ̣ν διατρ ̣[ ]χ [ει ]ν πρὸς τὴν οἰκονομίαν τῶν ̣ η ̣̔με ̣τ ̣έρων, οὐκ ἂν ὠ [κ ]νήκειν, P Leid Wvii. 13 (ii/iii A.D.) ὅτι δυνατὸς εἶ (sc. ποιῆσαι κτλ.), Syll 721.18 (iv/B.C.) promising to render help καθ᾽ ὅτι ἂν ἦι δυνατός, etc. For the neuter δυνατόν see further P Petr II. 11(1).3 (c. B.C. 252) εἰ δυνατόν ἐστιν καὶ μηθὲν σὲ τῶν ἔργων κωλύει, πειράθητι ἐλθεῖν εἰς τὰ Ἀρσινόεια, and cf. ib. 39 (g).16 (middle iii/B.C.) διότι ὑπάρχει ἐν τῆι δωρεᾶι χόρτος ἱκανὸς ἀφ᾽ οὗ ἐὰν ἐν δυνατῶι ἦι εἰς τὰς ἐν τῶι νομῶι ἀβχρ, OGIS 771.49 (B.C. 172–1) ἐὰν ἐν δυνατῶι εἷ. For κατὰ τὸ δυνατόν, see P Giss I. 36.6 (B.C. 161), ib. 41ii. 11 (ii/A.D.), and for ὅσον δυνατόν σοι ἐστιν see P Flor II. 178.3 (A.D. 258). It forms a masc. noun in plur. = ";troops"; in P Revill Mél p. 295.9 (= Witkowski.2, p. 96) (B.C. 131–0), where a man is heard of as coming μετὰ δυνατ ̣ῶν ἱκανῶν to suppress riotous crowds : perhaps there is an additional suggestion of competence—";mighty men of valour."; The adverb occurs in Michel 1001vii. 27 (Theran Doric—c. B.C. 200) ὅπως δὲ πάντα διοικεῖται κατά τε τὰν διαθήκαν καὶ τὸν νόμον καὶ τὰ δόξαντα τῶι κοινῶι δυνατῶς ἐς πάντα τὸν χρόνον. MGr δυνατός = ";able,"; ";possible,"; ";strong,"; ";loud"; (Thumb).
