HELPS Word-studies

5302 hysteréō (from 5306 /hýsteros, "last") – properly, at "the end," i.e. coming behind (to "be posterior, late"); (figuratively) coming behind and therefore left out; left wanting (falling short).

5302 /hysteréō ("failing to fulfill a goal") means to be in lack and hence, unable to meet the need at hand because depleted ("all run out"). This state of lack (insufficiency, privation) naturally results when a person misses out on what is vital.

1. Active, "to be ὕστερος i. e. behind; i. e.

a. to come late or too tardily" (so in secular authors from Herodotus down): Hebrews 4:1; to be left behind in the race and so fail to reach the goal, to fall short of the end; with ἀπό and the genitive indicating the end, metaphorically, fail to become a partaker: ἀπό τῆς χάριτος, Hebrews 12:15 (others render here fall back (i. e. away) from; cf. Winers Grammar, § 30, 6 b.; Buttmann, 322f (276f) cf. § 132, 5) (Ecclesiastes 6:2).

b. to be inferior, in power, influence, rank, 1 Corinthians 12:24 (where L T Tr WH passive, ὑστερουμένῳ); in virtue, τί ἔτι ὑστερῶ; in what am I still deficient (A. V. what lack I yet (cf. Buttmann, § 131, 10)), Matthew 19:20 (Sir. 51:24; ἵνα γνῷ τί ὑστερῶ ἐγώ, Psalm 38:5 (); μηδ' ἐν ἄλλῳ μηδενί μέρει ἀρετῆς ὑστερουντας, Plato, de rep. 6, p. 484 d.); μηδέν or οὐδέν followed by a genitive (depending on the idea of comparison contained in the verb (Buttmann, § 132, 22)) of the person, to be inferior to (A.
