STRONGS NT 922: βάρος

βάρος, βαρέος, τό, heaviness, weight, burden, trouble: load, ἐπιτιθεναι τίνι (Xenophon, oec. 17, 9), to impose upon one cult requirements, Acts 15:28; βάλλειν ἐπί τινα, Revelation 2:24 (where the meaning is, 'I put upon you no other injunction which it might be difficult to observe'; cf. Düsterdieck at the passage); βαστάζειν τό βάρος τίνος, i. e. either the burden of a thing, as τό βάρος τῆς ἡμέρας the wearisome labor of the day Matthew 20:12, or that which a person bears, as in Galatians 6:2 (where used of troublesome moral faults; the meaning is, 'bear one another's faults'). αἰώνιον βάρος δόξης a weight of glory never to cease, i. e. vast and transcendent glory (blessedness), 2 Corinthians 4:17; cf. Winer's Grammar, § 34, 3; (πλούτου, Plutarch, Alex. M. 48). weight equivalent to authority: ἐν βαρεῖ εἶναι to have authority and influence, 1 Thessalonians 2:7(6) (so also in Greek writings; cf. Wesseling on Diodorus Siculus 4, 61; (examples in Suidas under the word)). (Synonyms: see ὄγκος.)
