Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2354: θρηνέω

θρηνέω, θρήνῳ: imperfect ἐθρήνουν; future θρηνήσω; 1 aorist ἐθρήνησα; (θρῆνος, which see); from Homer down; the Sept. for הֵילִיל, קונֵן, etc.;

1. to lament, to mourn: John 16:20; of the singers of dirges (to wail), Matthew 11:17; Luke 7:32.

2. to bewail, deplore: τινα, Luke 23:27. (On θρηνέω to lament, λόπτομαι to smite the breast in grief, λυπέομαι to be pained, saddened, πενθέω to mourn, cf. Trench, § 65, and see κλαίω at the end; yet note that in classic Greek λύπεσθαι is the most comprehensive word, designating every species of pain of body or soul; and that πενθέω expresses a self-contained grief, never violent in its manifestations; like our English word mourn it is associated by usage with the death of kindred, and like it used pregnantly to suggest that event. See Schmidt, vol. ii., chapter 83.)
