VOW is related to the Greek βεβαιώ (veveo)

The word vow (oath, assure) comes from the Latin voveo (I vow), which is related to the Greek verb βεβαιώ (to assure, to promise with certainty; veveo).
In Greek.
α) βεβαιώ or βεβαιώνω: affirm, confirm, certify [veveo or veveono]
β) βεβαίωση: Affirmation, assurance, confirmation [veveosi]
γ) βεβαίως: adv. certainly, sure, of course [veveos]
δ) βέβαιος: certain, sure [veveos]
