3929 páresis(from 3844 /pará, "from close-beside" and hiēmi, "let go") – properly, to release something closely felt, i.e. an " 'overlooking, suspension, remission' of punishment for" (Souter).

3929 /páresis ("passed-over-from-close-beside") is used only in Ro 3:25, of God releasing His judgment on sin in the OT when redeeming believers. This was based on the absolutely sure, upcoming sacrifice of Christ – "retroactively applied" to them in God's immutable, eternal plan.

[3929 (páresis) means "remission of punishment" in the papyri (BGU II. 624, i.e. during time of Diocletian). Thus it implies "remission of debt" (MM).]

STRONGS NT 3929: πάρεσις

πάρεσις, παρεσισεως, (παρίημι, which see), pretermission, passing over, letting pass, neglecting, disregarding: διά τήν πάρεσιν ... ἀνοχή τοῦ Θεοῦ, because God had patiently let pass the sins committed previously (to the expiatory death of Christ), i. e. bad tolerated, had not punished (and so man's conception of his holiness was in danger of becoming dim, if not extinct), Romans 3:25, where cf. Fritzsche; (Trench, § xxxiii. (Hippocrates, Dionysius Halicarnassus, others)).
