Strong's # 4623
+ Etymology:from σιωπή (siōpḗ) (silence, i.e. a hush; properly, muteness, i.e. involuntary stillness, or inability to speak; and thus differing from 4602, 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)
+ KJV usage::--dumb, (hold) peace.
