Groan, Groaning - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Groan, Groaning

[ A-1,Verb,G1690, embrimaomai ]
from en, in," and brime, "strength," is rendered "groaned" in John 11:33 (preferable to the RV marg., "He had indignation"); so in John 11:38. The Lord was deeply moved doubtless with the combination of circumstances, present and in the immediate future. Indignation does not here seem to express His feelings. See CHARGE.

[ A-2,Verb,G4727, stenazo ]
See GRIEVE, B, No. 3.

[ A-3,Verb,G4959, sustenazo ]
"to groan together" (sun, "with," and No. 2) is used of the Creation in Romans 8:22. In Romans 8:23, No. 2 is used.

[ B-1,Noun,G4726, stenagmos ]
akin to A, No. 2, is used in Acts 7:34, in a quotation from Exodus 3:7, but not from the Sept., which there has krauge, "a cry;" the word is used, however, in Exodus 2:24; in Romans 8:26, in the plural, of the intercessory groanings of the Holy Spirit.
