‘There was no word for “cousin”’

Luke 1:36
And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.

Luke 1:58
And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.

Luke was a greek and they have a word for cousin. Aramaic does not.

Elizabeth is also spoken of as a kinswoman.

The Greek word there is, I believe, “suggen”, which is “relative”. Translating it as cousin is making it more specific that the Greek actually supports.
