International Standard Bible Encyclopedia


The sense of this word has suffered weakening since the time of the King James Version. Then it implied utmost exertion and success; now rather forlorn hope and possible failure. Thus the Revised Version (British and American) reads "giving diligence," "give diligence," for the King James Version "endeavoring," "endeavor," in Ephesians 4:3 2 Peter 1:15, respectively; but "endeavored" is suffered to remain in 1 Thessalonians 2:17 (spoudazo, "hasten," "exert oneself"). Compare also Acts 16:10, the King James Version "endeavored," the Revised Version (British and American) "sought" (Greek zeteo, "seek").

Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
1. (v. t.) To exert physical or intellectual strength for the attainment of; to use efforts to effect; to strive to achieve or reach; to try; to attempt.

2. (v. i.) To exert one's self; to work for a certain end.

3. (n.) An exertion of physical or intellectual strength toward the attainment of an object; a systematic or continuous attempt; an effort; a trial.
