STRONGS NT 4160: ποιέω
ποιέω, ποιῶ; imperfect 3 person singular ἐποίει, plural 2 person ἐποιεῖτε, 3 person ἐποίουν; future ποιήσω; 1 aorist ἐποίησα, 3 person plural optative ποιήσειαν (Luke 6:11 R G; cf. Winers Grammar, § 13, 2 d.; (Buttmann, 42 (37))) and ποιήσαιεν (ibid. L T Tr WH (see WH's Appendix, p. 167)); perfect πεποίηκα; pluperfect πεποιήκειν without augment (Mark 15:7; see Winers Grammar, § 12, 9; Buttmann, 33 (29)); middle, present ποιοῦμαι; imperfect ἐποιουμην; future ποιήσομαι; 1 aorist ἐποιησάμην; perfect passive participle πεποιημενος (Hebrews 12:27); from Homer down; Hebrew עָשָׂה; Latin facio, that is,
I. to make (Latin effcio),
1. τί;
a. with the names of the things made, to produce, construct, form, fashion, etc.: ἀντρακιαν, John 18:18; εἰκόνα, Revelation 13:14; ἱμάτια, Acts 9:39; ναούς, Acts 19:24; σκηνάς, Matthew 17:4; Mark 9:5; Luke 9:33; τύπους, Acts 7:43; πηλόν, John 9:11, 14; πλάσμα, Romans 9:20; according to some interpreters (also Winer's Grammar, 256 n. 1 (210 n. 2)) ὁδόν ποιεῖν, to make a path, Mark 2:23 R G T Tr text WH text (so that the meaning is, that the disciples of Christ made a path for themselves through the standing grain by plucking the heads; see ὁδοποιέω, at the end. If we adopt this interpretation, we must take the ground that Mark does not give us the true account of the matter, but has sadly corrupted the narrative received from others; (those who do accept it, however, not only lay stress on the almost unvarying lexical usage, but call attention to the fact that the other interpretation (see below) finds the leading idea expressed in the participle — an idiom apparently foreign to the N. T. (see Winer's Grammar, 353 (331)), and to the additional circumstance that Mark introduces the phrase after having already expressed the idea of 'going', and expressed it by substantially the same word (παραπορεύεσθαι) which Matthew (Matthew 12:1) and Luke (Luke 6:1) employ and regard as of itself sufficient. On the interpretation of the passage, the alleged 'sad corruption,' etc., see James Morison, Commentary on Mark, 2nd edition, p. 57f; on the other side, Weiss, Marcusevangelium, p. 100). But see just below, under c.). to create, to produce: of God, as the author of all things, τί or τινα, Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6; Luke 11:40; Hebrews 1:2; Acts 4:24; Acts 7:50; Acts 17:24; Revelation 14:7; passive, Hebrews 12:27 (Wis. 1:13 Wis. 9:9; 2 Macc. 7:28, and often in the O. T. Apocrypha; for עָשָׂה in Genesis 1:7, 16, 25, etc.; for בָּרָא in Genesis 1:21, 27; Genesis 5:1, etc.; also in Greek writings: γένος ἀνθρώπων, Hesiod op. 109, etc.; absolutely, ποιῶν, the creator, Plato, Tim., p. 76 c.); here belongs also Hebrews 3:2, on which see Bleek and Lünemann ((cf. below, 2 c. β.)). In imitation of the Hebrew עָשָׂה (cf. Winer('s Simonis (4th edition 1828)), Lex. Hebrew et Chald., p. 754; Gesenius, Thesaurus, ii., p. 1074f) absolutely of men, to labor, to do work, Matthew 20:12 (Ruth 2:19); equivalent to to be operative, exercise activity, Revelation 13:5 Relz. L T Tr WH (cf. Daniel 11:28; but others render ποιεῖν in both these examples spend, continue, in reference to time; see II. d. below).
b. joined to nouns denoting a state or condition, it signifies to be the author of, to cause: σκάνδαλα, Romans 16:17; εἰρήνην (to be the author of harmony), Ephesians 2:15; James 3:18; ἐπισύστασιν (L T Tr WH ἐπίστασιν), Acts 24:12; συστροφήν, Acts 23:12; ποιῶ τίνι τί, to bring, afford, a thing to one, Luke 1:68; Acts 15:3 (so also Greek writings, as Xenophon, mem. 3, 10, 8 (cf. Liddell and Scott, under the word A. II. 1 a.)).
c. joined to nouns involving the idea of action (or of something which is accomplished by action), so as to form a periphrasis for the verb cognate to the substantive, and thus to express the idea of the verb more forcibly — in which species of periphrasis the Greeks more commonly use the middle (see 3 below, and Winers Grammar, 256 (240); (Buttmann, § 135, 5)): μόνην ποιῶ παρά τίνι, John 14:23 (where L T Tr WH ποιησόμεθα; cf. Thucydides 1, 131); ὁδόν, to make one's way, go, Mark 2:23 (where render as follows: they began, as they went, to pluck the ears; cf. ποιῆσαι ὁδόν αὐτοῦ, Judges 17:8; the Greeks say ὁδόν ποιεῖσθαι, Herodotus 7, 42; see above, under a.); πόλεμον, Revelation 13:5 Rec.elz; with the addition of μετά τίνος (equivalent to πολεμεῖν), Revelation 11:7; Revelation 12:17; Revelation 13:7 (here L omits; WH Tr marginal reading brackets the clause); Revelation 19:19 (see μετά, I. 2 d., p. 403{b}); ἐκδίκησιν, Luke 18:7, 8; τίνι, Acts 7:24, (Micah 5:15); ἐνέδραν, equivalent to ἐνεδρεύω, to make an ambush, lay wait, Acts 25:3; συμβούλιον, equivalent to συμβουλεύομαι, to hold a consultation, deliberate, Mark 3:6 (R G T Tr marginal reading WH marginal reading); Mark 15:1 (here T WH marginal reading συμβούλιον ἑτοιμασαντες); συνωμοσίαν, equivalent to συνόμνυμι, Acts 23:13 (where L T Tr WH ποιησάμενοι for Rec. πεποιηκότες; see in 3 below); κρίσιν, to execute judgment, John 5:27; Jude 1:15. To this head may be referred norms by which the mode or kind of action is more precisely defined; as δυνάμεις, δύναμιν, ποιεῖν, Matthew 7:22; Matthew 13:58; Mark 6:5; Acts 19:11; τήν ἐξουσίαν τίνος, Revelation 13:12; ἔργον (a notable work), ἔργα, of Jesus, John 5:36; John 7:3, 21; John 10:25; John 14:10, 12; John 15:24; κράτος, Luke 1:51; σημεῖα, τέρατα καί σημεῖα (Mark 13:22 Tdf.); John 2:23; John 3:2; John 4:54; John 6:2, 14, 30; John 7:31; John 9:16; John 10:41; John 11:47; John 12:18, 37; John 20:30; Acts 2:22; Acts 6:8; Acts 7:36; Acts 8:6; Acts 15:12; Revelation 13:13, 14; Revelation 16:14; Revelation 19:20; θαυμάσια, Matthew 21:15; ὅσα ἐποίει, ἐποίησαν, etc., Mark 3:8; Mark 6:30; Luke 9:10; in other phrases it is used of marvellous works, Matthew 9:28; Luke 4:23; John 4:45; John 7:4; John 11:45, 46; John 21:25 (not Tdf.); Acts 10:39; Acts 14:11; Acts 21:19; etc.
d. equivalent to to make ready, to prepare: ἄριστον, Luke 14:12; δεῖπνον, Mark 6:21; Luke 14:16; John 12:2 (δεῖπνον ποιεῖσθαι, Xenophon, Cyril 3, 3, 25); δοχήν, Luke 5:29; Luke 14:13 (Genesis 21:8); γάμους, Matthew 22:2 (γάμον, Tobit 8:19).
e. of things effected by generative force, to produce, bear, shoot forth: of trees, vines, grass, etc., κλάδους, Mark 4:32; καρπούς, Matthew 3:8, etc., see καρπός, 1 and 2 a. (Genesis 1:11, 12; Aristotle, de plant. (1, 4, p. 819b, 31); 2, 10 (829a, 41); Theophrastus, de caus. plant. 4, 11 ((?))); ἐλαίας, James 3:12 (τόν οἶνον, of the vine, Josephus, Antiquities 11, 3, 5); of a fountain yielding water, ibid.
f. ποιῶ ἐμαυτῷ τί, to acquire, to provide a thing for oneself (i. e. for one's use): βαλάντια, Luke 12:33; φίλους, Luke 16:9; without a dative, to gain: of tradesmen (like our colloquialism, to make something), Matthew 25:16 (L Tr WH ἐκέρδησεν); Luke 19:18 (Polybius 2, 62, 12; pecuniam maximam facere, Cicero, Verr. 2, 2, 6).
2. With additions to the accusative which define or limit the idea of making:
a. τί ἐκ τίνος (genitive of material), to make a thing out of something, John 2:15; John 9:6; Romans 9:21; κατά τί, according to the pattern of a thing (see κατά, II. 3 c. α.), Acts 7:41. with the addition, to the accusative of the thing, of an adjective with which the verb so blends that, taken with the adjective, it may be changed into the verb cognate to the adjective: εὐθείας ποιεῖν (τάς τρίβους), equivalent to ἐυθύνειν, Matthew 3:3; Mark 1:3; Luke 3:4; τρίχα λευκήν μέλαιναν, equivalent to λευκαίνειν, μελαίνειν, Matthew 5:36; add, Acts 12:19; Hebrews 12:13; Revelation 21:5.
b. τό ἱκανόν τίνι; see ἱκανός, a.
c. ποιεῖν τινα with an accusative of the predicate,
α. to (make i. e.) render one anything: τινα ἴσον τίνι, Matthew 20:12; τινα δῆλον, Matthew 26:73; add, Matthew 12:16; Matthew 28:14; Mark 3:12; John 5:11, 15; John 7:23; John 16:2; Romans 9:28 (R G, Tr marginal reading in brackets); Hebrews 1:7; Revelation 12:15; τινας ἁλιεῖς, to make them fit (qualify them) for fishing, Matthew 4:19; (ποιῶν ταῦτα γνωστά ἀπ' αἰῶνος, Acts 15:17f, G T Tr WH (see γνωστός, and cf. II. a. below)); τά ἀμφότερα ἕν, to make the two different things one, Ephesians 2:14; to change one thing into another, Matthew 21:13; Mark 11:17; Luke 19:46; John 2:16; John 4:46; 1 Corinthians 6:15.
β. to (make i. e.) constitute or appoint one anything: τινα κύριον, Acts 2:36; Revelation 5:10; to this sense some interpreters would refer Hebrews 3:2 also, where after τῷ ποιήσαντι αὐτόν they supply from the preceding context τόν ἀπόστολον καί ἀρχιερέα κτλ.; but it is more correct to take ποιεῖν here in the sense of create (see 1 a. above); τινα, ἵνα with the subjunctive to appoint or ordain one that etc. Mark 3:14.
γ. to (make, i. e.) declare one anything: John 5:18; John 8:53; John 10:33; John 19:7, 12; 1 John 1:10; 1 John 5:10; τί with an accusative of the predicate Matthew 12:33 (on which see Meyer).

3. As the active ποιεῖν (see 1 c. above), so also the middle ποιεῖσθαι, joined to accusatives of abstract nouns forms a periphrasis for the verb cognate to the substantive; and then, while ποιεῖν signifies to be the author of a thing (to cause, bring about, as ποιεῖν πόλεμον, εἰρήνην), ποιεῖσθαι denotes an action which pertains in some way to the actor (for oneself, among themselves, etc., as σπονδάς, εἰρήνην ποιεῖσθαι), or which is done by one with his own resources ((the 'dynamic' or 'subjective' middle), as πόλεμον ποιεῖσθαι (to make, carry on, war); cf. Passow, under the word, I. 2 a. ii., p. 974f; (Liddell and Scott, under the word, A. II. 4); Krüger, § 52, 8, 1; Blume ad Lycurgus, p. 55; (Winers Grammar, § 38, 5 n.; Buttmann, § 135, 5); although this distinction is not always, observed even by the Greeks): ποιεῖσθαι μόνην (make our abode), John 14:23 L T Tr WH (see 1 c. above); συνωμοσίαν (Herodian, 7, 4, 7 (3 edition, Bekker); Polybius 1, 70, 6; 6, 13, 4; in the second instance Polybius might more fitly have said ποιεῖν), Acts 23:13 L T Tr WH, see 1 c. above; λόγον, to compose a narrative, Acts 1:1; to make account of, regard, (see λόγος, II. 2 (and cf. I. 3 a.)), Acts 20:24 (T Tr WH, λόγου); ἀναβολήν (see ἀναβολή), Acts 25:17; ἐκβολήν (see ἐκβολή, b.), Acts 27:18; κοπετόν (equivalent to κόπτομαι), Acts 8:2 (here L T Tr WH give the active, cf. Buttmann, § 135, 5 n.); πορείαν (equivalent to πορεύομαι), Luke 13:22 (Xenophon, Cyril 5, 2, 31; anab. 5, 6, 11; Josephus, Vita §§11 and52; Plutarch, de solert. anim., p. 971 e.; 2 Macc. 3:8 2Macc. 12:10); κοινωνίαν, to make a contribution among themselves and from their own means, Romans 15:26; σπουδήν, Jude 1:3 (Herodotus 1, 4; 9, 8; Plato, legg. 1, p. 628 e.; Polybius 1, 46, 2 and often; Diodorus 1, 75; Plutarch, puer. educ. 7, 13; others); αὔξησιν (equivalent to ἀυξάνομαι), to make increase, Ephesians 4:16; δέησιν, δεήσεις, equivalent to δέομαι, to make supplication, Luke 5:33; Philippians 1:4; 1 Timothy 2:1; μνείαν (which see); μνήμην (which see in b.), 2 Peter 1:15; πρόνοιαν (equivalent to προνωυμαι), to have regard for, care for, make provision for, τίνος, Romans 13:14 (Isocrates paneg. §§ 2 and 136 (pp. 52 and 93, Lange edition); Demosthenes, p. 1163, 19; 1429, 8; Polybius 4, 6, 11; Dionysius Halicarnassus, Antiquities 5, 46; Josephus, b. j. 4, 5, 2; Antiquities 5, 7, 9; contra Apion 1, 2, 3; Aelian v. h. 12, 56; others; cf. Kypke, Observations, ii, p. 187); καθαρισμόν, Hebrews 1:3 (Job 7:21); βέβαιον ποιεῖσθαι τί, equivalent to βεβαιουν, 2 Peter 1:10.
