3793 óxlos – a crowd (throng). The singular ("crowd"/oxlos) is used about three times more frequently than the plural ("crowds"/oxloi). The singular and plural should be distinguished in translation because they each express distinct nuances.

[Of the 174 NT examples of 3793 (óxlos),118 are singular and 56 are plural. Of the 118, "63 are in an oblique case, 55 in nominative singular. Of these 55 there are 44 with singular verb and 11 with plural verb. When oxlos is subsequently referred to in narrative or by some speaker, the reference is always in the plural, whether verb or pronoun autois, etc., except Rev 7:9 where proximity is probably the cause of the singular. That also is the only passage where the relative is used" (R, 1390).]

3. universally, a multitude: with a genitive of the class, as τελωνῶν, Luke 5:29; μαθητῶν, Luke 6:17; ὀνομάτων (see ὄνομα, 3), Acts 1:15; τῶν ἱερέων, Acts 6:7; the plural ὄχλοι, joined with λαοί and ἔθνη, in Revelation 17:15 seems to designate troops of men assembled together without order. (The Sept. chiefly for הָמון.)
