Strong’s Greek Lexicon

or εθελω ethelo eth-el’-o; in certain tenses θελεω theleo thel-eh’-o; and εθελεω etheleo eth-el-eh’-o; which are otherwise obsolete; apparently strengthened from the alternate form of <0138>; to determine (as an active option from subjective impulse; whereas <1014> properly denotes rather a passive acquiescence in objective considerations), i.e. choose or prefer (literally or figuratively); by implication, to wish, i.e. be inclined to (sometimes adverbially, gladly); impersonally for the future tense, to be about to; by Hebraism, to delight in:—desire, be disposed (forward), intend, list, love, mean, please, have rather, (be) will (have, -ling, -ling[-ly]).
