Thayer's Expanded Definition

πόλεμος πολέμου, (from ΠΑΛΩ, πολέω, to turn, to range about, whence Latinpello, bellum; (but cf. Fick 1:671; Vanicek, 513)) (from Homer down), the Sept. for מִלְחָמָה;

1. properly,

a. war: Matthew 24:6; Mark 13:7; Luke 14:31; Luke 21:9; Hebrews 11:31; in imitation of the Hebrew מִלְחָמָה עָשָׂה followed by אֵת or עִם (Genesis 14:2; Deuteronomy 20:12, 20), πόλεμον ποιεῖν μετά τίνος, Revelation 11:7; Revelation 12:17; Revelation 13:7 (here L omits; WH Tr marginal reading brackets the clause); (cf. μετά, I. 2 d.).

b. a fight, a battle (more precisely μάχη; "in Homer (where Iliad 7, 174 it is used even of single combat) and Hesiod the sense of battle prevails; in Attic that of tear" (Liddell and Scott, under the word); cf. Trench, § 86:and (in partial modification) Schmidt, chapter 138, 5 and 6): 1 Corinthians 14:8; Hebrews 11:34; Revelation 9:7, 9; Revelation 12:7; Revelation 16:14; Revelation 20:8.

2. a dispute, strife, quarrel: πόλεμοι καί μάχαι, James 4:1 (Sophocles El. 219; Plato, Phaedo, p. 66 c.).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In its NT occurrences (1 Timothy 5:24 f., Hebrews 7:14) the προ - of πρόδηλος is intensive rather than temporal, ";perfectly clear,"; ";evident,"; cf. P Oxy II. 237viii. 9 (A.D. 186) τοῦ πράγματος πρ [ο ]δ ̣ήλου γενομένου, Syll 686 (= .3 1073).21 (A.D. 117) ὡς πρόδηλον εἶναι τὴν ἐλπίδα τῆς (subst omitted) ἐπὶ τὸν ἱερώτατον στέφανον αὐτῶι, and IMAe VII. 119, 120 ὁρᾷς θανάτου τὸ πρόδηλον. Similarly with the verb—P Magd 21.10 (B.C. 221) τὴ ]ν προδεδηλωμένην τιμήν, P Ryl II. 109.6 (A.D. 235) πατὴρ τῶ [ν ] δυεῖν προδεδ [η ]λωμένων ἀφηλίκων, ";father of the two minors aforesaid,"; and Aristeas 14 καθὼς προδεδήλωται, ";as already explained.";
