αὐξάνω, and earlier (the only form in Pindar and Sophocles [Veitch, under the word says, 'Hesiod, Mimnermus, Sophocles, Thucydides always have αὔξω or ἀύξομαι, and Pindar except ἀυξάνοι from 130 (Bergk)']) αὔξω (Ephesians 2:21; Colossians 2:19); imperfect ηὔξανον; future αὐξήσω; 1 aorist ηὔξησα; [passive, present αὐξάνομαι]; 1 aorist,

Buttmann, 54 (47); 145 (127); Winers Grammar, § 38, 1]) intransitive, to grow, increase: of plants, Matthew 6:28; Mark 4:8 Rec.; Luke 12:27 [not Tdf.; Tr marginal reading brackets αὐξ.]; Luke 13:19; of infants, Luke 1:80; Luke 2:40; of a multitude of people, Acts 7:17. of inward Christian growth: εἰς Χριστόν, in reference to [Winer's Grammar, 397 (371); yet cf. Ellicott at the passage] Christ, Ephesians 4:15; εἰς ναόν, so as to form a temple, Ephesians 2:21; ἐν χάριτι, 2 Peter 3:18; with an accusative of the substance, τὴν αὔξησιν, Colossians 2:19 [cf. Winers Grammar, § 32, 2; Buttmann, § 131, 5, also Bp. Lightfoot's note at the passage]; of the external increase of the gospel it is said λόγος ηὔξανε: Acts 6:7; Acts 12:24; Acts 19:20; of the growing authority of a teacher and the number of his adherents (opposed to ἐλαττοῦσθαι), John 3:30. [Compare: συν-, ὑπεραυξάνω.]
