Strong’s Greek Lexicon

a prolonged form of a primary verb; to “know” (absolutely) in a great variety of applications and with many implications (as follow, with others not thus clearly expressed):—allow, be aware (of), feel, (have) know(-ledge), perceived, be resolved, can speak, be sure, understand.

Owing to changes in the enumeration while in progress, there were no words left for numbers 2717 and 3203-3302, which were therefore silently dropped out of the vocabulary and references as redundant.
