asthenes

ἀσθενὴς [5 verses](adj sg masc nom) "Sick" is from asthenes, which means "without strength," "weak", in body "feeble", "sickly", in power, "weak", "feeble", in property, "weak", "poor", and "insignificant." It could be the verb (meaning "to be weak" or "to be sickly") used in the earlier verse, but it would be in the second person, singular, "You are/were weak/sickly." So it doesn't fit.  - Surprisingly, the word used for "sick" changes in this part of the story. It is also an uncommon one despite all of Christ's work healing. It the previous verses, it was a verb, but here it is an adjective meaning "weak" or "sickly."
