anemos: windOriginal Word: ἄνεμος, ου, ὁPart of Speech:
the wind; fig: applied to empty doctrines.
417 ánemos – properly, a gust of air (wind); (figuratively) something with gusting, storm-like force, like someone bent in a particular direction (cf. Eph 4:14; Rev 7:1).
(Mk 6:48) Ironically, obedience to the Lord sometimes does bring us into storms! Here God meets (transforms) us in ways that could never happen otherwise. Praise the Lord!
Mk 6:45,48: "45Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side to Bethsaida, while He Himself was sending the crowd away. . . . 48Seeing them straining at the oars, for the wind (417 /ánemos) was against them, at about the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea; and He intended to pass by them" (NASU).
