STRONGS NT 3170: μεγαλύνω
μεγαλύνω; imperfect ἐμεγαλυνον; passive (imperfect 3 person singular ἐμεγαλύνετο); 1 aorist infinitive μεγαλυνθῆναι; 1 future μεγαλυνθήσομαι; (μέγας); from (Aeschylus and) Thucydides down; the Sept. mostly for הִגְדִּיל;
1. to make great, magnify (Vulg.magnifico): τινα or τί, properly, of dimension, Matthew 23:5 (here A. V. enlarge); passive to increase: of bodily stature, ἐμεγαλύνθη τό παιδάριον, 1 Samuel 2:21; so in a figure, 2 Corinthians 10:15, of Paul, that his apostolic efficiency among the Corinthians may increase more and more and have more abundant results (others refer this to 2; see Meyer (edited by Heinrici) in the place cited). metaphorically, to make conspicious: Luke 1:58 (on which see ἔλεος, 2 a.).
2. to deem or declare great, i. e. to esteem highly, to extol, laud, celebrate: Luke 1:16; Acts 5:13; Acts 10:46; Acts 19:17. (often so in classical Greek also); passive equivalent to to get glory and praise: ἐν τίνι, in a thing, Philippians 1:20.
