Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words [1]

1: Ἀνεκδιήγητος (Strong'S #411 — Adjective — anekdiegetos — an-ek-dee-ay'-gay-tos )

denotes "inexpressible" (a, negative, n, euphonic, ekdiegeomai, "to declare, relate"),  2—Corinthians 9:15 , "unspeakable" (of the gift of God); regarding the various explanations of the gift, it seems most suitable to view it as the gift of His Son.

2: Ἀνεκλάλητος (Strong'S #412 — Adjective — aneklaletos — an-ek-lal'-ay-tos )

denotes "unable to be told out" (eklaleo, "to speak out"),  1—Peter 1:8 , of the believer's joy.

3: Ἄρρητος (Strong'S #731 — Adjective — arrhetos — ar'-hray-tos )

primarily, "unspoken" (a, negative, rhetos, "spoken"), denotes "unspeakable,"  2—Corinthians 12:4 , of the words heard by Paul when caught up into paradise. The word is common in sacred inscriptions especially in connection with the Greek Mysteries; hence Moulton and Milligan suggest the meaning "words too sacred to be uttered."

King James Dictionary [2]

UNSPE'AKABLE, a. That cannot be uttered that cannot be expressed unuterable as unspeakable grief or rage.  2 Corinthians 12 .

Joy unspeakable and full of glory.  1 Peter 1 .

Webster's Dictionary [3]

(a.) Not speakable; incapable of being uttered or adequately described; inexpressible; unutterable; ineffable; as, unspeakable grief or rage.
