Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
βιάζω biázō, bee-ad'-zo; from G979; to force, i.e. (reflexively) to crowd oneself (into), or (passively) to be seized:—press, suffer violence.
STRONGS NT 971: βιάζω
βιάζω: (βία); to use force, to apply force; τινά, to force, inflict violence on, one; the active is very rare and almost exclusively poetic [from Homer down]; passive [Buttmann, 53 (46)] in Matthew 11:12 βασιλεία τ. οὐρ. βιάζεται, the kingdom of heaven is taken by violence, carried by storm, i. e. a share in the heavenly kingdom is sought for with the most ardent zeal and the intensest exertion; cf. Xenophon, Hell. 5, 2, 15 (23) πόλεις τὰς βεβιασμένας; [but see Weiss, James Morison, Norton, in the place cited]. The other explanation: the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence namely, from its enemies, agrees neither with the time when Christ spoke the words, nor with the context; cf. Fritzsche, DeWette, Meyer, at the passage. Middle, βιάζομαι followed by εἴς τι to force one's way into a thing, (ἐς τὴν Ποτίδαιαν, Thucydides 1, 63; ἐς τὸ ἔξω, 7, 69; εἰς τὴν παρεμβολήν, Polybius 1, 74, 5; εἰς τὰ ἐντός, Philo, vit. Moys. i., § 19; εἰς τὸ στρατόπεδον, Plutarch, Otho 12, etc.): εἰς τ. βασιλείαν τοῦ θεοῦ, to get a share in the kingdom of God by the utmost earnestness and effort, Luke 16:16. [Compare: παραβιάζομαι.]
