STRONGS NT 1545: ἔκβασις

ἔκβασις, ἐκβασεως, (ἐκβαίνω);

1. an egress, way out (Homer, et al.): applied figuratively to the way of escape from temptation into which one εἰσέρχεται or εἰσφέρεται (see these words), 1 Corinthians 10:13.

2. in a sense foreign to secular authors, the issue ((cf. its objective sense e. g. Epictetus diss. 2, 7, 9)) equivalent to end: used of the end of life, Wis. 2:17; ἔκβασις τῆς ἀναστροφῆς τινων, in Hebrews 13:7, is not merely the end of their physical life, but the manner in which they closed a well-spent life as exhibited by their spirit in dying; cf. Delitzsch, at the passage.

end, way to escape.

From a compound of ek and the base of basis (meaning to go out); an exit (literally or figuratively) -- end, way to escape.
