STRONGS NT 142: αἴρω
αἴρω (contracted from the poetic ἀείρω); future ἀρῶ 1 aorist ἦρα, infinitive ἆραι, imperative ἆρον; perfect ἠρκα (Colossians 2:14); passive, [present αἴρομαι]; perfect ἤρμαι (John 20:1); 1 aorist ἤρθην; (on the rejection of the iota subscript in these tenses see Bttm. Ausf. Spr. i., pp. 413, 439; [Winer's Grammar, 47 (46)]); 1 future ἀρθήσομαι; [from Homer down]; in the Sept. generally equivalent to נָשָׂא; to lift up, raise.
1. to raise up;
a. to raise from the ground, take up: stones, John 8:59; serpents, Mark 16:18; a dead body, Acts 20:9.
b. to raise upward, elevate, lift up: the hand, Revelation 10:5; the eyes, John 11:41; the voice, i. e., speak in a loud tone, cry out, Luke 17:13; Acts 4:24 (also in secular writings); τὴν ψυχήν, to raise the mind, equivalent to excite, affect strongly (with a sense of fear, hope, joy, grief, etc.); in John 10:24 to hold the mind in suspense between doubt and hope, cf. Lücke [or Meyer] at the passage,
c. to draw up: a fish, Matthew 17:27 (ἀνασπᾶν, Habakkuk 1:15); σκάφην, Acts 27:17; anchors from the bottom of the sea, Acts 27:13, where supply τὰς ἀγκύρας; cf. Kuinoel at the passage; [Winers Grammar, 594 (552); Buttmann, 146 (127)].
2. to take upon oneself and carry what has been raised, to bear: τινὰ ἐπὶ χειρῶν, Matthew 4:6; Luke 4:11 (Psalm 90:12 (Psalms 91:12)); a sick man, Mark 2:3; ζυγόν, Matthew 11:29 (Lamentations 3:27); a bed, Matthew 9:6; Mark 2:9, 11; Luke 5:24; John 5:8-12; τὸν σταυρόν, Matt. [Matthew 10:38 Lachmann marginal reading]; Matthew 16:24; 27:32; Luke 9:23; Mark 8:34; Mark 10:21 [in R L brackets]; Mark 15:21; [λίθον,] Revelation 18:21; to carry with one, [A. V. take]: Mark 6:8; Luke 9:3; Luke 22:36. Both of these ideas are expressed in classical Greek by the middle αἴρεσθαι.

b. to take off or away what is attached to anything: John 19:31, 38f; to tear away, Matthew 9:16; Mark 2:21; to rend away, cut off, John 15:2.
c. to remove: 1 Corinthians 5:2 (cast out from the church, where ἀρθῇ should be read for Rec. ἐξαρθῇ); tropically: faults, Ephesians 4:31; τήν ἁμαρτίαν, John 1:29 [36 Lachmann in brackets], to remove the guilt and punishment of sin by expiation, or to cause that sin be neither imputed nor punished (αἴρειν ἁμάρτημα, 1 Samuel 15:25; ἀνόμημα, 1 Samuel 25:28, i. e. to grant pardon for an offence); but in 1 John 3:5 τὰς ἁμαρτίας ἡμῶν αἴρειν is to cause our sins to cease, i. e., that we no longer sin, while we enter into fellowship with Christ, who is free from sin, and abide in that fellowship, cf. 1 John 3:6.

g. to take and apply to any use: Acts 21:11; 1 Corinthians 6:15.
h. to take from among the living, either by a natural death, John 17:15 (ἐκ τοῦ κόσμου take away from intercourse with the world), or by violence, Matthew 24:39; Luke 23:18; John 19:15; Acts 21:36; with the addition of ἀπό τῆς γῆς, Acts 22:22; αἴρεται ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς ζωὴ αὐτοῦ, of a bloody death inflicted upon one, Acts 8:33 (Isaiah 53:8).
i. of things; to take out of the way, destroy: χειρόγραφον, Colossians 2:14; cause to cease: τὴν κρίσιν, Acts 8:33 (Isaiah 53:8).
