Strong's Greek Dictionary

G4496 ῥίπτω

Transliteration: rhíptō

Derivation: a primary verb (perhaps rather akin to the base of G4474, through the idea of sudden motion);

Definition: to fling (properly, with a quick toss, thus differing from G906, which denotes a deliberate hurl; and from τείνω (teínō) (see in G1614), which indicates an extended projection); by qualification, to deposit (as if a load); by extension, to disperse
