[ 1,,G3303, men ]
a conjunctive particle (originally a form of men, verily, truly," found in Hebrews 6:14), usually related to an adversative conjunction or particle, like de, in the following clause, which is placed in opposition to it. Frequently it is untranslatable; sometimes it is rendered "indeed," e.g., Matthew 3:11; Matthew 13:32; Matthew 17:11, RV (AV, "truly"); Matthew 20:23; Matthew 26:41; (some mss. have it in Mark 1:8); Mark 9:12, RV (AV, "verily").

[ 2,,G227, alethes ]
"true," is rendered "indeed" in John 6:55 (twice), See RV marg.; some mss. have No. 3 here.

[ 3,,G230, alethos ]
"truly" (from No. 2), is translated "indeed" in John 1:47; John 4:42; John 8:31.

[ 4,,G3689, ontos ]
an adverb from on, the present participle of eimi, "to be," denotes "really, actually;" it is translated "indeed" in Mark 11:32 (RV, "verily"); Luke 24:34; John 8:36; 1 Corinthians 14:25, RV (AV "of a truth"); 1 Timothy 5:3, 1 Timothy 5:5, 1 Timothy 5:16; 1 Timothy 6:15, RV, where some mss. have aionios, "eternal" (AV); in Galatians 3:21, "verily."

[ 5,,G2532 G1063,kai gar ] signifies "and in fact," "for also" (kai, "and," or "even," or "also;" gar, "for;" gar always comes after the first word in the sentence); it is translated "For indeed" in the RV of Acts 19:40; 2 Corinthians 5:4; 1 Thessalonians 4:10 (AV, "and indeed"); AV and RV in Philippians 2:27. This phrase has a confirmatory sense, rather than a modifying effect, e.g, Matthew 15:27, RV, "for even," instead of the AV "yet;" the woman confirms that her own position as a Gentile "dog" brings privilege, "for indeed the dogs, etc."

[ 9,,G1509,ei meti ] "if not indeed," is rendered "unless indeed" in 2 Corinthians 13:5, RV (AV, "except").
