STRONGS NT 1451: ἐγγύςἐγγύς, adverb (from ἐν and γυιον (limb, hand), at hand; (but rather allied with ἄγχι, ἄγχω, anxious, anguish, etc.; see Curtius § 166; Vanicek, p. 22)) (from Homer down), the Sept. for קָרוב; near;

1. of place and position;

a. properly: absolutely, John 19:42 (cf. also 20 G L T Tr WH (but see below)); with the genitive (Matthiae, § 339, 1, p. 812; Winers Grammar, 195 (183); (471 (439); Buttmann, § 132, 24)), Luke 19:11; John 3:23; John 6:19, 23; John 11:18, 54; John 19:20 (Rec., but see above); Acts 1:12; with the dative (Matthiae, § 386, 6; Kühner, § 423, 13; (Jelf, § 592, 2)), Acts 9:38; Acts 27:8.

b. tropically; οἱ ἐγγύς, those who are near of access to God, i. e. Jews, and οἱ μακράν, those who are alien from the true God and the blessings of the theocracy, i. e. Gentiles: Ephesians 2:17 (cf. Isaiah 57:19); ἐγγύς γίνεσθαι, to be brought near, namely, to the blessings of the kingdom of God, Ephesians 2:13 (so with the rabbis not infrequently to make nigh is equivalent to to make a proselyte, cf.

Schol. 1:363)); ἐγγύς σου τό ῤῆμα ἐστιν, near thee, i. e. at hand, already, as it were, in thy mind, Romans 10:8 from Deuteronomy 30:14 (cf. Buttmann, § 129, 11; Winer's Grammar, 465 (434)).
