STRONGS NT 3777: οὔτε

οὔτε (οὐ and τέ), an adjunctive negative conjunction (from Homer down) (differing fr., μήτε as οὐ does from μή (which see ad at the beginning), and from οὐδέ as μήτε does from μηδέ; see μήτε and οὐδέ), neither; and not.

1. Examples in which οὔτε stands singly:

a. οὐ ... οὔτε, Revelation 12:8 Rec. (where G L T Tr WH οὐδέ); Revelation 20:4 R G (where L T Tr WH οὐδέ); οὐδείς ἄξιος εὑρέθη ἀνοῖξαι τό βιβλίον οὔτε βλέπειν αὐτό, Revelation 5:4; cf. Winers Grammar, 491 (457); Buttmann, 367 (315); οὐ ... οὐδέ ... οὔτε, 1 Thessalonians 2:3 R G (where L T Tr WH more correctly οὐδέ) (Winers Grammar, 493 (459); Buttmann, 368 (315)); οὐδέ ... οὔτε (so that οὔτε answers only to the οὐ in οὐδέ), Galatians 1:12 R G T WH text (Winers Grammar, 492 (458); Buttmann, 366 (314)).

b. οὔτε ... καί, like Latinneque ...et, neither ... and: John 4:11; 3 John 1:10 (Euripides, Iph. T. 591; but the more common Greek usage was οὐ ... τέ, cf. Klotz ad Devar. 2:2, p. 714; Passow, under the word, B. 2; (Liddell and Scott, under the word, II. 4); Winers Grammar, § 55, 7; (Buttmann, § 149, 13 c.)).

c. By a solecism οὔτε is put for οὐδέ, not ... even: 1 Corinthians 3:2 Rec. (where G L T Tr WH οὐδέ) (Winers Grammar, 493 (459); Buttmann, 367 (315); § 149, 13 f.); Mark 5:3 R G (where L T Tr WH have restored οὐδέ (Winers Grammar, 490 (456); Buttmann, as above)); Luke 12:26 R G (where L T Tr WH οὐδέ (Winers Grammar, as above and 478 (445); Buttmann, 347 (298))); οὔτε μετενόησαν, Revelation 9:20 R L Tr (where G WH text οὐ, T οὐδέ not ... even; WH marginal reading οὔτε or οὐδέ (cf. Buttmann, 367 (315))); after the question μή δύναται ... σῦκα; follows οὔτε ἁλυκόν γλυκύ ποιῆσαι ὕδωρ, James 3:12 G L T Tr WH (as though οὔτε δύναται ... σῦκα had previously been in the writer's mind (cf. Winers Grammar, 493 (459); Buttmann, as above)).

2. used twice or more, neither ... nor (Latinnec ...nec;neque ...neque): Matthew 6:20; Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25; (Mark 14:68 L text T Tr WH); Luke 14:35 (34); John 4:21; John 5:37; John 8:19; John 9:3; Acts 15:10; Acts 19:37; Acts 25:8; Acts 28:21; Romans 8:38f (where οὔτε occurs ten times); 1 Corinthians 3:7; 1 Corinthians 6:9f; (οὔτε eight times (yet T WH Tr marginal reading the eighth time οὐ)); ; Galatians 5:6; Galatians 6:15; 1 Thessalonians 2:6; Revelation 3:15; Revelation 9:20; Revelation 21:4; οὔτε ... οὔτε ... οὐδέ (German auchnicht, also not), L Tr WH in Luke 20:35f, and L T Tr marginal reading WH in Acts 24:12f; cf. Winers Grammar, 491 (457f); Buttmann, 368 (315) note.

neither, nor

From ou and te; not too, i.e. Neither or nor; by analogy, not even -- neither, none, nor (yet), (no, yet) not, nothing.
