Strong’s Greek Lexicon

strengthened for a primary εδω edo (to eat); used only in certain tenses, the rest being supplied by G5315; to eat (usually literal):—devour, eat, live.

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.
