STRONGS NT 936: βασιλεύω
βασιλεύω; future βασιλεύσω; 1 aorist ἐβασίλευσα; (βασιλεύς); — in Greek writings [from Homer down] with the genitive or dative, in the sacred writings, after the Hebrew (עַל מָשַׁל), followed by ἐπί with the genitive of place, Matthew 2:22 (where L T WH omit; Tr brackets ἐπί); Revelation 5:10; followed by ἐπί with the accusative of the person, Luke 1:33; Luke 19:14, 27; Romans 5:14; [cf. Winers Grammar, 206 (193f); Buttmann, 169 (147)] — to be king, to exercise kingly power, to reign: universally, 1 Timothy 6:15; Luke 19:14, 27; of the governor of a country, although not possessing kingly rank, Matthew 2:22; of God, Revelation 11:15, 17; Revelation 19:6; of the rule of Jesus, the Messiah, Luke 1:33; 1 Corinthians 15:25; Revelation 11:15; of the reign of Christians in the millennium, Revelation 5:10; Revelation 20:4, 6; Revelation 22:5; hence Paul transfers the word to denote the supreme moral dignity, liberty, blessedness, which will be enjoyed by Christ's redeemed ones: Romans 5:17 (cf. DeWette and Thol. at the passage); 1 Corinthians 4:8. Metaphorically, to exercise the highest influence, to control: Romans 5:14, 17, 21; Romans 6:12. The aorist ἐβασίλευσα denotes I obtained royal power, became king, have come to reign, in 1 Corinthians 4:8 [cf. Winers Grammar, 302 (283); Buttmann, 215 (185)]; Revelation 11:17; Revelation 19:6 (as often in the Sept. and secular writings; cf. Grimm on 1 Macc., p. 11; Breitenbach or Kühner, on Xenophon, mem. 1, 1, 18; on the aorist to express entrance into a state, see Bernhardy, p. 382; Krüger, § 53, 5, 1; [Kühner, § 386, 5; Goodwin § 19 N. 1]). [Compare: συμβασιλεύω.]
