heteros: otherOriginal Word: ἕτερος, α, ονPart of Speech:
(a) of two: another, a second, (b) other, different, (c) one's neighbor.
2087 héteros – another (of a different kind). 2087 /héteros ("another but distinct in kind") stands in contrast to 243 /állos ("another of the same kind"). 2087 /héteros ("another of a different quality") emphasizes it is qualitatively different from its counterpart (comparison).
[2087 (héteros) sometimes refers to "another" of a different class group or type (as in Plato; Oxy. papyri).]

. It refers:
1. to number, as opposed to some former person or thing;
a. without the article, other: joined to a noun (which noun denotes some number or class within which others are distinguished from the one), Matthew 12:45 and Luke 11:26, ἑπτά ἑτέρα πνεύματα, i. e. from the number of the πνεύματα or demons seven others, to be distinguished from the one already mentioned; add, Mark 16:12; Luke 6:6; Luke 9:56, etc.; John 19:37; Acts 2:40; Acts 4:12, etc.; Romans 7:3; Romans 8:39; Romans 13:9; ἕτεραι γενεαί, other than the present, i. e. past generations, Ephesians 3:5; as in classical Greek ἄλλος, so sometimes also ἕτερος is elegantly joined to a noun that is in apposition: twice so in Luke, viz. ἕτεροι δύο κακοῦργοι two others, who were malefactors (Alexander Buttmann (1873) differently § 150, 3), Luke 23:32; ἑτέρους ἑβδομήκοντα equivalent to ἑτέρους μαθητάς, οἵτινες ἦσαν ἑβδομήκοντα Luke 10:1;reliquaprivataaedificia for 'the rest of the buildings, which were private' Caesar b. g. 1, 5; cf. Bornemann, Scholia ad Luc., p. 147f; Winers Grammar, 530 (493); (Josephus, contra Apion 1, 15, 3 and Müller's note). simply, without a noun, equivalent to ἄλλος τίς another, Luke 9:59; Luke 22:58; Acts 1:20; Romans 7:4; ἕτεροι πολλοί, Matthew 15:30; Luke 8:3; Acts 15:35; οὐδέν ἕτερον, Acts 17:21; ἑτέρα, other matters, Acts 19:39 R G T; πολλά καί ἑτέρα, many other things also (hardly also, see καί, I. 3; cf. remark under the word πολύς, d. a. at the end), Luke 3:18; ἕτερος with the genitive of person Galatians 1:19; τά ἑτέρων (opposed to τά ἑαυτοῦ), Philippians 2:4; ἑτέρων with τίς added, Acts 8:34; neuter 1 Timothy 1:10; (ἐν ἑτέρῳ, introducing a quotation, Hebrews 5:6, cf. Winer's 592 (551) — but in Acts 13:35 supply ψαλμῷ). in partitive formulas: ἄλλοι ... ἕτεροι δέ, Hebrews 11:36 cf. Acts 2:13; ὁ πρῶτος ... ἕτερος, Luke 14:19; Luke 16:7; ὁ δεύτερος ... ἕτερος, Luke 19:20 (where L T Tr WH ὁ ἕτερος); τινες ... ἕτεροι δέ, Luke 11:16; ᾧ μέν ... ἄλλῳ δέ ... ἑτέρῳ δέ ... ἄλλῳ δέ, 1 Corinthians 12:9f; οἱ μέν ... ἄλλοι (L οἱ) δέ ... ἕτεροι δέ, Matthew 16:14.
b. with the article, the other (of two): οἱ ἕτεροι, the others, the other party, Matthew 11:16 T Tr WH (see ἑταῖρος). distinctively: εἷς or εἷς ... ὁ ἕτερος, Matthew 6:24; Luke 7:41; Luke 16:13; Luke 17:34; Luke 18:10; Luke 23:40; τό ἕτερον πλοῖον, Luke 5:7; ἡ δέ ἑτέρα namely, ἡμέρα, the next day, the day after, Acts 20:15; Acts 27:3 (Xenophon, Cyril 4, 6, 10 (others)). ὁ ἕτερος, the other, when the relation of conduct to others is under consideration is often put by way of example for any other person whatever, and stands for 'the other affected by the action in question' (and may be transitive, thy neighbor, thy fellow, etc.): Romans 2:1; Romans 13:8; 1 Corinthians 6:1; 1 Corinthians 10:24, 29; 1 Corinthians 14:17; Galatians 6:4; (James 4:12 R G); plural οἱ, αἱ, τά ἕτεροι, ἕτεραι, ἑτέρα, the others i. e. the rest, Luke 4:43. It refers:
2. to quality; another i. e. one not of the same nature, form, class, kind; different (so in Greek writings from Homer down): Romans 7:23; 1 Corinthians 14:21; 1 Corinthians 15:40; 2 Corinthians 11:4; Galatians 1:6; Hebrews 7:11, 13, 15; James 2:25; Jude 1:7. (Synonym: see ἄλλος.)
