Strong’s Greek Lexicon

from G5384 and G2462; fond of horses; Philippus, the name of four Israelites:—Philip.

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.
