HELPS word-Studies

Cognate: 3534 níkos (a neuter noun) – victory, particularly the results of a conquest. In the NT, this victory always refers to the conquest accomplished for the believer by Christ (cf. Mt 12:20; 1 Cor 15:54) – which conquered all the powers of darkness (sin). Accordingly, death can not exert conquest over the believer (1 Cor 15:55). See 3528 (nikáō).

Reflection: Christ has already won the day! Thus the believer doesn't fight for victory – but rather from victory!

[The results of Christ's conquest come through faith, i.e. they are transferred by grace to the regenerated believer (1 Cor 15:57).]

STRONGS NT 3534: νῖκος

νῖκος, νικους, τό, a later form equivalent to νίκη (cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 647; (Buttmann, 23 (20); Winers Grammar, 24)), victory: 1 Corinthians 15:55, 57 (2 Macc. 10:38; (1 Esdr. 3:9)); εἰς νῖκος, until he have gained the victory, Matthew 12:20; κατεπόθη θάνατος εἰς νῖκος, (A. V. death is swallowed up in victory) i. e. utterly vanquished, 1 Corinthians 15:54. (The Sept. sometimes translate the Hebrew לָנֶצַח, i. e. to everlasting, forever, by εἰς νῖκος, 2 Samuel 2:26; Job 36:7; Lamentations 5:20; Amos 1:11; Amos 8:7, because נֶצַח denotes also splendor, 1 Chronicles 29:11, and in Syriac victory.)


From nike; a conquest (concretely), i.e. (by implication) triumph -- victory.
