STRONGS NT 2539: καίπερ

καίπερ (Treg. καί περ in Heb.; from Homer, Odyssey 7, 224 down), conjunc. (originally even very much, cf. Donaldson § 621; Bäumlein, p. 200f; Krüger, § 56, 13, 2; Buttmann, § 144, 23; Winers Grammar, § 45, 2 at the end), although; it is joined to a participle (in Greek writings sometimes also to an adjective, so that ὤν must be supplied): Philippians 3:4; Hebrews 5:8; Hebrews 7:5; Hebrews 12:17; 2 Peter 1:12; contrary to ordinary usage (yet so occasionally in Greek writings) with a finite verb, καίπερ ἐστιν, Revelation 17:8 Rec.; but since Griesbach καί παρέσται (correctly παρέσται (see in πάρειμι)) has been restored after the best manuscripts

and yet, although.

From kai and per; and indeed, i.e. Nevertheless or notwithstanding -- and yet, although.
