4145 ploúsios (an adjective, derived from 4149 /ploútos, "abundance") – properly, fully resourced; rich (filled), by having God's "muchness" – i.e. His abundance that comes from receiving His provisions (material and spiritual riches) through faith (4102 /pístis).

[The NAS dictionary and R. Winter's English Greek Concordance view the root of 4145 (ploúsios) to be 4130 /plḗthō ("filled, full") – but DNTT prefers polys ("many in number" which is more likely).

In either event, the Bible joins both ideas ("fullness," "riches") as one conceptual (and likely lexical) unit.]
