Strong’s Greek Lexicon

from the same as G2272; to keep still (intransitively), i.e. refrain from labor, meddlesomeness or speech:—cease, hold peace, be quiet, rest.

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.
