STRONGS NT 4712: στάδιον
στάδιον, σταδιου, plural τά σταδια (John 6:19 Tdf.), and οἱ σταδιοι (so (Matthew 14:24 Tr text WH text); Luke 24:13; John 6:19 (not Tdf.); Revelation 21:16 (Relz G L WH marginal reading); 2 Macc. 11:5 2Macc. 12:10, 29; in the other passages, the gender is not apparent (see Tdf. Proleg., p. 117; WHs Appendix, p. 157); Krüger, § 19, 2, 1) (ΣΤΑΩ, ἵστημι; hence, properly, 'established,' that which stands fast, a 'stated' distance, a 'fixed standard' of length), a stadium, i. e.
1. a measure of length comprising 600 Greek feet, or 625 Roman feet, or 125 Roman paces (Pliny, h. n. 2, 23 (21), 85), hence, one-eighth of a Roman mile (i. e. 606 3/4 English feet (about 15 miles less than one-fifth of a kilometer)); the space or distance of that length (A. V. a furlong): (Matthew 14:24 Tr text WH text); Luke 24:13; John 6:19; John 11:18; Revelation 14:20; Revelation 21:16.
2. a race-course, i. e. place in which contests in running were held; the one who outstripped the rest, and reached the goal first, receiving the prize: 1 Corinthians 9:24 (here A. V. race). Courses of this description were to be found in most of the larger Greek cities, and were, like that at Olympia, 600 Greek feet in length. Cf. Winers RWB, under the word Sigdium; Grundt in Schenkel, under the word, vol. v., 375f; (BB. DD. under the word ).<1>
