1) the; though sometimes it doesn’t need to be translated, as it can be redundant in English (e.g., “he dearly loves the brother his” becomes “he dearly loves his brother”)
2) genitive: sometimes it can be translated “of” when doubled (e.g., “the Word the Life” becomes “the Word of Life”), flipped (e.g., “the Life Word”), or flipped as an adjective (e.g., “the Living Word”)
3) demonstrative pronoun: when it isn’t paired with a noun, it can be translated as “the one” (e.g., “the who” becomes “the one who”)
4) sometimes if a noun isn’t preceded by this definite article, then the noun can be preceded with an indefinite article: “a/an” (e.g., “He reconciler is” becomes “He is a reconciler”)

Strong’s Greek Lexicon

including the feminine η he hay; and the neuter το to to; in all their inflections; the def. article; the (sometimes to be supplied, at others omitted, in English idiom):—the, this, that, one, he, she, it, etc.

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.
