STRONGS NT 714: ἀρκέω

ἀρκέω, ἄρκῳ; 1 aorist ἠρκεσα; (passive, present ἀρκοῦμαι); 1 future ἀρκεσθήσομαι; to be possessed of unfailing strength; to be strong, to suffice, to be enough (as against any danger; hence, to defend, ward off, in Homer; (others make this the radical meaning, cf. Latarceo; Curtius, § 7)): with the dative of person, Matthew 25:9; John 6:7; ἀρκεῖ σοι χάρις my grace is sufficient for thee, namely, to enable thee to bear the evil manfully; there is, therefore, no reason why thou shouldst ask for its removal, 2 Corinthians 12:9; impersonally, ἀρκεῖ ἡμῖν 'tis enough for us, we are content, John 14:8. Passive (as in Greek writings) to be satisfied, contented: τίνι, with a thing, Luke 3:14; Hebrews 13:5; 1 Timothy 6:8; (2 Macc. 5:15); ἐπί τίνι, 3 John 1:10. (Compare: ἐπαρκέω.)
