spech ('imrah, dabhar, etc.; logos): "Speech," the articulate utterance of thought, is the tranlation of various Hebrew terms which convey this idea of "saying" or "word"; so, in the New Testament, the term generally so rendered is logos, "word." See LOGOS; WORD. Eulogia in Romans 16:18 is "fair speech"; lalia in Matthew 26:73 Mark 14:70 the King James Version; John 8:43 is simply "talk." the Revised Version (British and American) has "speech" for various other words in the King James Version, as "matters" (1 Samuel 16:18, margin "bussiness"), "communication" (Matthew 5:37 Ephesians 4:29), "words" (Luke 20:20 1 Corinthians 14:9); "persuasiveness of speech" for "enticing words" (Colossians 2:4), etc.
