Strong’s Greek Lexicon

a prolonged form of a primary ευρω heuro hyoo’-ro; which (together with another cognate form ευρεω heureo hyoo-reh’-o) is used for it in all the tenses except the present and imperfect; to find (literally or figuratively):—find, get, obtain, perceive, see.

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.
