STRONGS NT 1654: ἐλεημοσύνη

ἐλεημοσύνη, ἐλεημοσύνης, (ἐλεήμων), the Sept. for חֶסֶד and צְדָקָה (see δικαιοσύνη, 1 b.);

1. mercy, pity (Callimachus () in Del. 152; Isaiah 38:18; Sir. 17:22 (), etc.), especially as exhibited in giving alms, charity: Matthew 6:4; ποιεῖν ἐλεημοσύνην, to practise the virtue of mercy or beneficence, to show one's compassion (A. V. do alms) (cf. the similar phrases δικαιοσύνην, ἀλήθειαν, etc. ποιεῖν), Matthew 6:1 Rec., 2, 3, (Sir. 7:10; Tobit 4:7 Tobit 12:8, etc.; for חֶסֶד עָשָׂה, Genesis 47:29); ἐλεημοσύνας, acts of beneficence, benefactions (cf. Winers Grammar, 176 (166); Buttmann, 77 (67)), Acts 10:2; εἰς τινα, Acts 24:17. Hence,

2. the benefaction itself, a donation to the poor, alms (the German Almosen (and the English alms) being (alike) a corruption of the Greek word): ἐλεημοσύνην διδόναι (((Diogenes Laërtius 5, 17)), Luke 11:41; Luke 12:33; αἰτεῖν, Acts 3:2; λαμβάνειν, Acts 3:3; πρός τήν ἐλεημοσύνην for (the purpose of asking) alms, Acts 3:10; plural, Acts 9:36; Acts 10:4, 31.

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance

From eleos; compassionateness, i.e. (as exercised towards the poor) beneficence, or (concretely) a benefaction -- alms(-deeds).
