ῥῆμα [10 verses](noun sg neut acc) "Word" is rhema, which means "that which is spoken", "word", "saying", "word for word", "subject of speech," and "matter." -- The Greek word translated as "words" is not logos, the Greek word that is almost always translated as "word(s)" in the Gospels, but rhema, which specifically means spoken words, that is, a saying. The English word "remarks" is the same base and captures this idea well.
