Thayer's Expanded Definition

ἐλεάω, adopted for the more common ἐληω (which see) by L T Tr WH in Romans 9:16 and Jude 1:23 (also by WH Tr marginal reading in 22); (Proverbs 21:26 Vat.; 4 Macc. 9:3 variant; Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 13, 2 [ET]; Polycarp, ad Philip. 2, 2 [ET]). Cf. Winers Grammar, 85 (82); Buttmann, 57 (50); (Mullach, p. 252; WHs Appendix, p. 166; Tdf. Proleg., p. 122).

STRONGS NT 1653: ἐληω ἐληω, ἐλεῶ; future ἐλεήσω; 1 aorist ἠλέησα; passive, 1 aorist ἠλεήθην; 1 future ἐλεηθήσομαι; perfect participle ἠλεημένος; (ἔλεος); from Homer down; the Sept. most frequently for חָנַן to be gracious, also for רִחַם to have mercy; several times for חָמַל to spare, and נִחַם to console; to have mercy on: τινα (Winer's Grammar, § 32, 1 b. α.), to succor one afflicted or seeking aid, Matthew 9:27; Matthew 15:22; Matthew 17:15; Matthew 18:33; Matthew 20:30; Mark 5:19 (here, by zeugma (Winer's Grammar, § 66, 2 e.), the ὅσα is brought over with an adverbial force (Winers Grammar, 463 (431f), how); f; Luke 16:24; Luke 17:13; Luke 18:38; Philippians 2:27; Jude 1:22 Rec.; absolutely to succor the afflicted, to bring help to the wretched (A. V. to show mercy), Romans 12:8; passive to experience (A. V. obtain) mercy, Matthew 5:7. Specifically, of God granting even to the unworthy favor, benefits, opportunities, and particularly salvation by Christ: Romans 9:15, 16 R G (see ἐλεάω), Romans 9:18; Romans 11:32; passive, Romans 11:30; 1 Corinthians 7:25; 2 Corinthians 4:1; 1 Timothy 1:13, 16; 1 Peter 2:10. [SYNONYMS: ἐληω, οἰκτείρω: ἐληω, to feel sympathy with the misery of another, especially such sympathy as manifests itself in act, less frequent in word; whereas οἰκτείρω denotes the inward feeling of compassion which abides in the heart. A criminal begs ἔλεος of his judge; but hopeless suffering is often the object of οἰκτιρμός. Schmidt, chapter 143. On the other hand, Fritzsche (Commentary on Romans, vol. ii., p. 315) makes οἰκτείρω and its derivatives the stronger terms: ἐληω, the generic word for the feeling excited by another's misery; οἰκτείρω the same, especially when it calls (or is suited to call) out exclamations and tears.]

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἐλεέω, ἐλεάω is found in the interesting but obscure letter written to a man in money difficulties BGU IV. 1079.23 (A.D. 41) (= Selections, p. 40) ἐρώτα αὐτὸν καθ᾽ ἡμέραν · τάχα δύναταί σε ἐλεῆσαι, ";ask him daily : perhaps he can have pity on you"; : cf. P Fay 106.16 (c. A.D. 140) ἐξησθένησα [ . . .. ] κύριε, ὅθεν ἀξιῶ σαὶ τὸν σω [τῆρα ] ἐλεῆσαί με, ";I became very weak, my lord; wherefore I entreat you my preserver to have pity on me,"; P Oxy VI. 904.2 (v/A.D.) (cited s.v. γηράσκω), and from the inscrr. Syll 418.88 (A.D. 238) ἵνα ἐλεηθέντες διὰ τὴν θείαν σου πρόνοιαν κτλ. For a Christian use, see the prayer P Oxy III. 407.3 (iii/iv A.D.) βοήθησόν μοι ἐλέησόν με ἐξάλιψόν μοι τὰς ἁμαρτίας. For a suggestion that ";Kyrie eleison was a common Jewish prayer formula, which was adopted by Christians,"; see JTS xvi. p. 548 f. Sharp (Epict. p. 4) cites in illustration of Matthew 20:30 f. Epict. ii. 7. 12 τὸν θεὸν ἐπικαλούμενοι δεόμεθα αὐτοῦ · κύριε, ἐλέησον · ἐπίτρεψόν μοι ἐξελθεῖν —a passage dealing with divination. In MGr the verb is used with the acc. = ";give alms to.";

WH read forms derived from ἐλεάω in Romans 9:16, Judges 1:22 f. For other exx. of the mixing of —άω and —έω in the NT cf. Blass Debrunner Gr. p. 50, and on the similar tendency in ";vulgar"; writers and in MGr see Maidhof Begriffsbestimmung, p. 361 f.
