Thayer's Expanded Definition

λουτρόν, λουτροῦ, τό (λούω), from Homer down (who uses λοετρόν, from the uncontracted form λοέω), a bathing, bath, i. e. as well the act of bathing (a sense disputed by some (cf. Ellicott on Ephesians 5:26)), as the place; used in the N. T. and in ecclesiastical writings of baptism (for examples see Sophocles' Lexicon, under the word): with τοῦ ὕδατος added, Ephesians 5:26; τῆς παλιγγενεσίας, Titus 3:5.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In its two NT occurrences Ephesians 5:26 (where see Robinson’s note), Titus 3:5 (cf. Song of Solomon 4:2, Sirach 31:1-31(34):30), λουτρόυ denotes ";the water for washing,"; or ";the washing"; itself, as in the Mysteries’ inscr. from Andania, Syll 653.106 (B.C. 91) where one of the headings is—Ἀλείμματος καὶ λουτροῦ. For λουτρόν, like λουτρών (OGIS 339.33—c. B.C. 120) = ";place for bathing,"; we may cite Cagnat IV. 293i. 22 τὸ παρ᾽ αὐτὴν [λο ]υτρὸν ὁμοίως μαρμάρινον : cf. P Oxy X. 1252 verso .22 (A.D. 288–95) τὴν διοίκησιν τῶν δημοσίων λουτρῶν, ";the management of the public baths,"; ib. VI. 892.11 (A.D. 338), 915.2 (A.D. 572) al., and the dim. λουτρίδιον in P Ryl II. 154.9 (A.D. 66). For the LXX λουτήρ, ";laver,"; see OGIS 479.10 (ii/A.D.) γυμνασιαρχήσαντα δρακτοῖς ἐκ λου [τήρ ]ων with the editor’s note. MGr λουτρό, ";bath.";
