μέλει v. μέλω.

English (Thayer)

3rd person singular present of μέλω used impersonally; imperfect ἔμελεν; it is a care: τίνι, to one; as in Greek writings with the nominative of the thing, οὐδέν τούτων, μή τῶν βοῶν μέλει τῷ Θεῷ; Buttmann, § 132,15; cf. Winer's Grammar, 595 (554)); the thing which is a care to one, or about which he is solicitous, is evident from the context, περί τίνος, genitive of object, to care about, have regard for, a person or a thing: Herodotus 6,101; Xenophon, mem. 3,6, 10; Cyril 4,5, 17; Hier. 9,10; Winer's Grammar, § 30,10d.); followed by ὅτι, Luke 10:40.
