e. to comprehend, understand, (like Latin audio): Mark 4:33; Galatians 4:21 ([Lachmann marginal reading ἀναγινώσκετε) yet cf. Meyer at the passage]; (Genesis 11:7).
2. ἀκούειν is not joined with the genitive of the object unless one hear the person or thing with his own ears [Buttmann, 166 (114)];
a. with the genitive of a person; simply;
α. to perceive anyone's voice: οὗ, i. e., of Christ, whose voice is heard in the instruction of his messengers (Luke 10:16), Romans 10:14 [Winer's Grammar, 199 (187) note2],
β. to give ear to one, listen, hearken, (German ihm zuhören, ihn anhören): Matthew 2:9; Mark 7:14; Mark 12:37; Luke 2:46; Luke 10:16; Luke 15:1; Luke 19:48; Luke 21:38; Acts 17:32; Acts 24:24 (in both these passages τινὸς περί τινος); Acts 25:22; John 6:60.

δ. its use by John in the sense to listen to, have regard to, of God answering the prayers of men: John 9:31; John 11:41; 1 John 5:14f (the Sept. render שָׁמַע by εἰσακούω).
ε. with the genitive of person and participle [Buttmann, 301 (259)]: Mark 14:58; Luke 18:36; John 1:37; John 7:32; Acts 2:6, 11; Revelation 16:5; ἤκουσα τοῦ θυσιαστηρίου λέγοντος, Revelation 16:7 G L T [Tr WH the Sinaiticus manuscript], a poetic personification; cf. DeWette at the passage, Winers Grammar, § 30, 11.
b. with the genitive of a thing: τῆς βλασφημίας, Mark 14:64 (Lachmann τὴν βλασφημίαν, as in Matthew 26:65; the accusative merely denotes the object; τῆς βλασφ. is equivalent, in sense to αὐτοῦ βλασφημοῦντος, [cf. Buttmann, 166 (145)]); τῶν λόγων, Luke 6:47 (Matthew 7:24 τοὺς λόγους); John 7:40 (L T Tr WH the Sinaiticus manuscript, but R G τὸν λόγον [cf. Buttmann, as above]); συμφωνίας κ. χορῶν, Luke 15:25; τοῦ στεναγμοῦ, Acts 7:34; τῆς ἀπολογίας, Acts 22:1. The frequent phrase ἀκούειν τῆς φωνῆς (equivalent to שָׁמַע בְּקוֹל, Exodus 18:19) means
α. to perceive the distinct words of a voice: John 5:25, 28; Acts 9:7; Acts 11:7; Acts 22:7; Hebrews 3:7, 15; Hebrews 4:7; Revelation 14:13; Revelation 21:3.
β. to yield obedience to the voice: John 5:25 (οἱ ἀκούσαντες namely, τῆς φωνῆς); John 10:16, 27; John 18:37; Revelation 3:20. In John 12:47; John 18:37; Luke 6:47; Acts 22:1, it is better to consider the pronoun μοῦ which precedes as a possessive genitive rather than, with Buttmann, 167 (145f), to assume a double genitive of the object, one of the person and one of the thing.
The Johannean phrase ἀκούειν παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ, or τὶ παρὰ θεοῦ, signifies
a. to perceive in the soul the inward communication of God: John 6:45.
b. to be taught by God's inward communication: John 8:26, 40 (so, too, the simple ἀκούειν in John 8:30); to be taught by the devil, according to the reading of L T Tr WH, ἠκούσατε παρὰ τοῦ πατρός, in John 8:38. For the rest cf. Buttmann, 165 (144ff); 301 (258ff)
[Compare: δι-, εἰσ-, ἐπ-, παρ-, προ-, ὑπακούω.]
