STRONGS NT 4413: πρ?το?

πρ?το?, πρ?τη, πρ?τον (superlative of πρ?, contracted from προατο?, whence the Doric πρατ??; the comparitive πρ?τερο? see in its place) (from Homer down), the Sept. for ??????? and often for ????? and ?????, first;

1. either in time or place, in any succession of things or of persons;

a. absolutely (i. e. without a noun) and substantively; α. with the article: ? πρ?το? κα? ? ?σχατο?, i. e. the eternal One, Revelation 1:17; Revelation 2:8; Revelation 22:13; ? πρ?το?, namely, τ?ν κεκλημ?νων, Luke 14:18; the first of two (cf. Winers Grammar, § 35, 4 N. 1; (Buttmann, 32 (28))), John 19:32; 1 Corinthians 14:30; plural opposed to ο? ?σχατοι, Matthew 20:16, on which see ?σχατο?, 2 a. Neuter τ? πρ?τον, opposed to τ? δε?τερον, Hebrews 10:9; τ? πρ?τα, opposed to τ? ?σχατα, one's first state, Matthew 12:45; Luke 11:26; 2 Peter 2:20; the first order of things, Revelation 21:4. β. without the article: Matthew 10:2 (πρ?το?, namely, of the apostles to be mentioned); plural, Matthew 19:30; Mark 10:31; Luke 13:30 (on the meaning of which three passages, see ?σχατο?, 2 a.); neuter πρ?τοι? (A. V. first of all), among the first things delivered to you by me, 1 Corinthians 15:3.

b. where it agrees with some substantive; α. anarthrous, and in place of an adjective: πρ?τη (namely, ?μ?ρα) σαββ?του, on the first day of the week, Mark 16:9; φυλακ?, opposed to δευτ?ρ?, Acts 12:10; as a predicate Luke 2:2 (on which cf. Winers Grammar, § 35, 4 N. 1; (Buttmann, § 127, 31)). where it is added to the subject or the object of the verb (and we often use an adverb; Winers Grammar, § 54, 2; (Buttmann, § 123, 9)): ε?ρ?σκει ο?το? πρ?το?, John 1:41(42) (where L Tr WH πρ?τον); add, John 8:7; John 20:4, 8; Acts 27:43; Romans 10:19; 1 Timothy 1:16; 1 John 4:19; opposed to ε?τα, 1 Timothy 2:13 πρ?το? ?μβ??, John 5:4 (the article belongs to ?μβ?? (G T Tr WH omit the passage)); but Acts 26:23 πρ?το? ?ναστ?σεω? νεκρ?ν is to be translated as the first. By a later Greek usage it is put where πρ?τερο? might have been expected with the genitive (cf. Herm. ad Vig., p. 717; Passow, under the word πρ?τερο?, B. I. 2 c. ii, p. 1243a; (Liddell and Scott, ibid. B. I. 4 c.); Fritzsche, Ep. ad Romans, ii., 420f; Winers Grammar, § 35, 4 N. 1; Buttmann, § 123, 14): πρ?το? μου , John 1:15, 30 (ο? πρ?τοι μου τα?τα ?νιχνευσαντε?, Aelian nat. anim. 8, 12). β. with the article: (? (?, τ?) πρ?το? (πρ?τη, πρ?τον), in a series which is so complete, either in fact or in thought, that other members are conceived of as following the first in regular order; as, τ?ν πρ?τον λ?γον, Acts 1:1; add, Mark 14:12; 2 Timothy 4:16; Revelation 4:1, 7; Revelation 13:12, etc.; (opposed to ? ?σχατο?), ? πρ?το? πλ?νη, Matthew 27:64; add, Matthew 20:8, 10, 16; 1 Corinthians 15:45, etc.; also 'the first' of two, where Latin usage requires and the Vulg. ordinarily employs prior (cf. Winers Grammar (and Buttmann), as above): Matthew 21:28, 31 (L Tr WH ?στερο?); ?λλου? δο?λου? πλε?ονα? τ?ν πρ?των, Matthew 21:36; ? πρ?τη διαθ?κη, Hebrews 8:7, 13; Hebrews 9:15, 18; ? πρ?τη, namely, διαθ?κη, Hebrews 9:1 G L T Tr WH; σκην?, Hebrews 9:1 Rec., 2, 6, 8; ? πρ?τη γ?, ? πρ?το? ο?ραν??, Revelation 21:1; ?ν?στασι?, Revelation 20:5, 6; ?νθρωπο? 1 Corinthians 15:47; followed by ? δε?τερο?, τρ?το?, etc.: Matthew 22:25; Mark 12:20; Luke 19:16; Luke 20:29; Revelation 8:7; Revelation 16:2; Revelation 21:19; followed by ?τερο?, Luke 16:5; ? πρ?το?, equivalent to the former, previous, pristine: τ?ν πρ?την π?στιν, the faith which they formerly plighted, 1 Timothy 5:12; ? πρ?τη ?γ?πη, Revelation 2:4; τ? πρ?τα ?ργα, Revelation 2:5.

2. first in rank, influence, honor; chief; principal: without the article, and absolutely, πρ?το? chief (opposed to δο?λο?), Matthew 20:27; Mark 10:44; opposed to ?σχατο? and δι?κονο?, Mark 9:35; added to a noun, principal, ?ντολ?, Matthew 22:38; Mark 12:30 (T WH omit; Tr marginal reading brackets the clause); Ephesians 6:2; with a partitive genitive, Mark 12:28, 29 (see π??, II. 2 b. γ.); 1 Timothy 1:15; with the article, Luke 15:22; Acts 17:4; ο? πρ?τοι τ?? Γαλιλα?α?, the chief men of Galilee, Mark 6:21: το? λαο?, Luke 19:47; τ?? π?λεω?, Acts 13:50; τ?ν ?ουδα?ων, Acts 25:2; Acts 28:17; τ?? ν?σου, Acts 28:7 (cf. Lewin, St. Paul, ii., p. 208f, but see Π?πλιο?).

3. neuter πρ?τον as adverb, first, at the first;

a. in order of time: Luke 10:5; John 18:13; Acts 11:26 (here T Tr WH πρ?τω?, which see); followed by ε?τα, ?πειτα, or δε?τερον, Mark 4:28; 1 Corinthians 15:46; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 1 Timothy 3:10; followed by μετ? τα?τα Mark 16:9 cf. Mark 16:12; the first time, opposed to τ? δευτ?ρ? (the second time), Acts 7:12, 13; τ? πρ?τον κα?, first and also (or afterward), i. e. as well as, Romans 1:16 (but here L Tr marginal reading WH brackets πρ?τον); ; without τ?, 2 Corinthians 8:5; 2 Timothy 1:5; first i. e. before anything else is done; first of all: Matthew 6:33; Luke 12:1; John 7:51 L Tr WH; Romans 1:8; 1 Timothy 5:4; 2 Peter 1:20; 2 Peter 3:3; πρ?τον π?ντων, 1 Timothy 2:1. first, i. e. before something else: Matthew 8:21; Mark 7:27; Mark 9:11, 12; Luke 11:38; Luke 14:28; Romans 15:24; 2 Thessalonians 2:3; 1 Peter 4:17, etc.; before other nations, Acts 3:26; Acts 13:46; before others (R. V. the first to partake etc.), 2 Timothy 2:6; followed by τ?τε or κα? τ?τε, Matthew 5:24; Matthew 7:5; Matthew 12:29; Mark 3:27; Luke 6:42; John 2:10 (T WH omit; L Tr brackets τ?τε); ?μ? πρ?τον ?μ?ν (Tdf. omits ?μ?ν) me before it hated you, John 15:18 (see 1 b. ?.). τ? πρ?τον. at the first, i. e. at the time when one did a thing for the first time: John 10:40; John 12:16; John 19:39.

b. in enumerating several particulars; first, then, etc.: Romans 3:2; 1 Corinthians 11:18; 1 Corinthians 12:28; Hebrews 7:2; James 3:17.
