Strong’s Greek Lexicon
of Aramaic origin [compare H1004 and H6719]; fishing-house; Bethsaida, a place in Palestine:—Bethsaida.
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.
