STRONGS NT 3563: νοῦςνοῦς (contracted from νως), , genitive νως,dative νοι< (so in later Greek for the earlier forms νου, νώ, contracted from νωυ, νόω; cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 453; Winers Grammar, § 8, 2 b.; (Buttmann, 12f (12))), accusative νοῦν (contracted from νῷν), the Sept. for לֵב and לֵבָב (from Homer down); mind (German Sinn), i. e.

1. the mind, comprising alike the faculties of perceiving and understanding and those of feeling, judging, determining; hence, specifically,

a. the intellective faculty, the understanding: Luke 24:45 (on which see διανοίγω, 2); Philippians 4:7; Revelation 13:18; Revelation 17:9; opposed to τό πνεῦμα, the spirit intensely roused and completely absorbed with divine things, but destitute of clear ideas of them, 1 Corinthians 14:14f, 19; ἔχειν τόν νοῦν κυρίου (L text, others Χριστοῦ), to be furnished with the understanding of Christ, 1 Corinthians 2:16b.

b. reason (German die Vernunft) in the narrower sense, as the capacity for spiritual truth, the higher powers of the soul, the faculty of perceiving dibble things, of recognizing goodness and of hating evil: Romans 1:28; Romans 7:23; Ephesians 4:17; 1 Timothy 6:5; 2 Timothy 3:8 (cf. Winers Grammar, 229 (215); Buttmann, § 134, 7); Titus 1:15; opposed to σάρξ, Romans 7:25; ἀνανεοῦσθαι τῷ πνεύματι τοῦ νως, to be so changed that the spirit which governs the mind is renewed, Ephesians 4:23; (cf. ἀνακαίνωσις τοῦ νως, Romans 12:2).

c. the power of considering and judging soberly, calmly and impartially: 2 Thessalonians 2:2.

2. a particular mode of thinking and judging: Romans 14:5; 1 Corinthians 1:10; equivalent to thoughts, feelings, purposes: τοῦ κυρίου (from Isaiah 40:13), Romans 11:34; 1 Corinthians 2:16a; equivalent to desires, τῆς σαρκός, Colossians 2:18 (cf. Meyer at the passage).
