BDAG on Genea

I'm just comparing what different lexicons say about genea.

Did not see Exodus 1:6, might have overlooked it. From the words there I get not just a matter of time. But, a specific group ( for lack of better words) generation had come and gone.

Philip, I checked the actual book again, and I did not see Exod 1:6, but it could be included too:

ἐτελεύτησε δὲ ᾿Ιωσὴφ καὶ πάντες οἱ ἀδελφοὶ αὐτοῦ καὶ πᾶσα ἡ γενεὰ ἐκείνη. (Ex 1:6 LXX)

Translation from ellopos: "And Joseph died, and all his brethren, and all that generation."
