ἁγνίζω; 1 aorist ἥγνισα; perfect participle active ἠγνικώς; passive ἡγνισμένος; 1 aorist passive ἡγνίσθην [Winer's Grammar, 252 (237)]; (ἁγνός); to purify;

BB. DD. under the word Nazarite].
2. morally: τὰς καρδίας, James 4:8; τὰς ψυχάς, 1 Peter 1:22; ἑαυτόν, 1 John 3:3. (Sophocles, Euripides, Plutarch, others.)
