βαρέω, βάρω: to burden, weigh down, depress; in the N. T. found only in the passive, viz., present participle βαρούμενοι, imperative βαρείσθω; 1 aorist ἐβαρήθην; perfect participle βεβαρημενος; the better writings do not use the present; they use only the participles, βεβαρηως and βεβαρημενος; see Matth. § 227; Winers Grammar, 83 (80); (Buttmann, 54 (47); Veitch, under the word). Used simply: to be weighed down, oppressed, with external evils and calamities, 2 Corinthians 1:8; of the mental oppression which the thought of inevitable death occasions, 2 Corinthians 5:4; ὀφθαλμοί βεβαρημένοι, namely, ὕπνῳ, weighed down with sleep, Mark 14:40 (L T Tr WH καταβαρυνόμενοι); Matthew 26:43; with ὕπνῳ added, Luke 9:32; ἐν (בְּ) κραιπάλῃ, Luke 21:34 Rec. βαρυνθῶσιν (see βαρύνω) (Homer, Odyssey 19, 122 οἴνῳ βεβαρηοτες, Diodorus Siculus 4, 38 τῇ νόσῳ); μή βαρείσθω let it not be burdened, namely, with their expense, 1 Timothy 5:16, (ἐισφοραις, Dio Cassius, 46, 32).
