Leisure (to have)

[ 1,,G2119, eukaireo ]
to have leisure or opportunity" (eu, "well," kairos, "a time or season"), is translated "they had ... leisure" in Mark 6:31; in Acts 17:21, "spent their time" (RV, marg., "had leisure for"); in 1 Corinthians 16:12, "he shall have opportunity," RV (AV, "... convenient time"). See CONVENIENT, OPPORTUNITY, SPEND. This verb differs from scholazo, "to have leisure;" it stresses the opportunity of doing something, whereas scholazo stresses the "leisure" for engaging in it e.g., 1 Corinthians 7:5, "(that) ye may give yourselves to."
