3780 ouxí (an emphatic negative adverb, intensifying 3756 /ou, "not"; see R, 1157) – properly definitely not, absolutely out of the question!

3780 (ouxi) is always emphatic, denying (dismissing) what is entirely non-factual – meaning "definitely not!" (G. Archer).

["The base, ou, is made stronger by -xi (ouxi, as in Lk 1:60). Brugmann considers ouxi an intensive particle and different from the Homeric ki (ou-ki)" (R, 1164).]

NAS Exhaustive Concordance
Word Origin
