Strong's Greek Dictionary

G4623 σιωπάω

Transliteration: siōpáō

Derivation: from σιωπή (siōpḗ) (silence, i.e. a hush; properly, muteness, i.e. involuntary stillness, or inability to speak; and thus differing from G4602, which is rather a voluntary refusal or indisposition to speak, although the terms are often used synonymously);

Definition: to be dumb (but not deaf also, like 2974 properly); figuratively, to be calm (as quiet water)

From: Strong's Greek Dictionary by James Strong (1890)
