Departing, Departure - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Departing, Departure

[ 1,,G359, analusis ]
an unloosing" (as of things woven), "a dissolving into separate parts" (Eng., "analysis"), is once used of "departure from life," 2 Timothy 4:6, where the metaphor is either nautical, from loosing from moorings (thus used in Greek poetry), or military, from breaking up an encampment; cp. kataluo in 2 Corinthians 5:1 (cp. DEPART, No. 16).

[ 2,,G867, aphixis ]
most frequently "an arrival" (akin to aphikneomas, See COME), also signifies a "departure" (apo, "from," hikneomai, "to come:" etymologically, to come far enough, reach; cp. hikanos, "sufficient"), the "departure" being regarded in relation to the end in view. Thus Paul speaks of his "departing," Acts 20:29.

[ 3,,G1841, exodos ]
See DECEASE.
