STRONGS NT 1982: ἐπισκιάζω
ἐπισκιάζω; [imperfect ἐπεσκίαζον, Luke 9:34 L marginal reading T Tr text WH]; future ἐπισκιάσω; 1 aorist ἐπεσκίασα; to throw a shadow upon, to envelop in shadow, to overshadow: τινί, Acts 5:15. From a vaporous cloud that casts a shadow the word is transferred to a shining cloud surrounding and enveloping persons with brightness: τινά, Matthew 17:5; Luke 9:34; τινί, Mark 9:7. Tropically, of the Holy Spirit exerting creative energy upon the womb of the virgin Mary and impregnating it, (a use of the word which seems to have been drawn from the familiar O. T. idea of a cloud as symbolizing the immediate presence and power of God): with the dative Luke 1:35. (In secular authors generally with an accusative of the object and in the sense of obscuring: Herodotus 1, 209; Sophocles, Aristotle, Theophrastus, Philo, Lucian, Herodian, Geoponica. Sept. for סָבַךְ to cover, Psalm 90:4 (Ps. 91:4); Psalm 139:8 (Ps. 140:8); for שָׁכַן, Exodus 40:29 (Exodus 40:35) ἐπεσκίαζεν ἐπὶ τὴν σκηνήν νεφέλη; [cf. Winer's Grammar § 52, 4, 7].)
