Strength— found throughout the Bible, but specifically 111 times in 103 verses in the Book of Psalms
Variations: strength, strengthen, strengthened, strengthenedst, strengtheneth, strengthening, strong, stronger, strongest, strongly
First usage in the Book of Psalms: Psalm 8:2 (strength)

Interesting fact: The Bible uses the phrase “strengthened himself” or “strengthened themselves” on multiple occasions. The implication of these uses most often implies the failure of an individual or group to yield and to walk in God’s strength. It is an act of rebellion rather than that of submission.
Bible study tip: When seeking to define and understand a Bible word, group the word in its proper category with other words of like usage. For example, in order to understand the word wisdom, one might group this word with other words like knowledge, understanding, and discretion. Sometimes one of the associated words is more general in nature and can be used as a description of the entire group of words.
