Absolutely! Although the word in question (KAQEUDW) is a NT word, there are
about 10,000 different words in the LXX which are not in NT lexica. There
are less than 6,000 different words in the NT.

The Perseus morph results means that the word KAQEUDW is KATA + EU(/DW.
While the Perseus morph engine is a wonderful tool, it, like all tools,
esp. computer tools, needs to be used with care!
