STRONGS NT 5413: φορτίον

φορτίον, φορτίου, τό (diminutive of φόρτος, but diminutive only in form not in significance; cf. Alexander Buttmann (1873) Ausf. Spr. ii; p. 440; (Winers Grammar, § 2, 1 d. at the end)), from Hesiod down, the Sept. for מַשָׂא, a burden, load: of the freight or lading of a ship (often so in Greek writings from Hesiod, Works, 645, 695 down), Acts 27:10 G L T Tr WH. Metaphorically: of burdensome rites, plural (Matthew 23:4); Luke 11:46; of the obligations Christ lays upon his followers, and styles a 'burden' by way of contrast to the precepts of the Pharisees the observance of which was most oppressive, Matthew 11:30 (αὐτός μόνος δύναται βαστάσαι Ζηνωνος φορτίον, (Diogenes Laërtius 7, 5, 4 (171); see ζυγός, 1 b.); of faults, the consciousness of which oppresses the soul, Galatians 6:5 (yet cf. Lightfoot at the passage Synonym: see ὄγκος, at the end.)
