Strong’s Greek Lexicon

of Hebrew origin ; properly, firm, i.e. (figuratively) trustworthy; adverbially, surely (often as interj. so be it):—amen, verily. Compare .

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.

Thayer’s Greek Definitions

1) firm
1a) metaphorically faithful
2) verily, amen
2a) at the beginning of a discourse-surely, truly, of a truth
2b) at the end-so it is, so be it, may it be fulfilled. It was a custom, which passed over from the synagogues to the Christian assemblies, that when he who had read or discoursed, had offered up solemn prayer to God, the others responded Amen, and thus made the substance of what was uttered their own.
