Thayer's Expanded Definition

σίναπι (also σινηπι (but not in the N. T.), both later for the Attic νᾶπυ (so accented in late authors, better νᾶπυ), see Lob. ad Phryn., p. 288) (thought to be of Egyptian origin; cf. Vanicek, Fremdwörter, under the word νᾶπυ), σινάπεως (Buttmann, 14 (13)), τό, mustard, the name of a plant which in oriental countries grows from a very small seed and attains to the height of 'a tree' — ten feet and more; hence, a very small quantity of a thing is likened to a κόκκος σινάπεως (A. V. a grain of mustard seed), Matthew 17:20; Luke 17:6; and also a thing which grows to a remarkable size, Matthew 13:31; Mark 4:31; Luke 13:19. (Cf. B. D., under the word ; Löw, Aram. Pflanzennamen, § 134; Carruthers in the 'Bible Educator' vol. i., p. 119f; Tristram, Nat. Hist. of the Bible, p. 472f; Thomson, The Land and the Book, ii., 100f.)
