a. universally: ἐξ ἐμαυτοῦ οὐκ ἐλάλησα, John 12:49 (οὐδέν ἐκ σαυτης λέγεις, Sophocles El. 344).
b. of the source of conduct, as to be found in the state of the soul, its feelings, virtues, vices, etc.: ἐκ καρδίας, Romans 6:17; ἐκ ψυχῆς, Ephesians 6:6; Colossians 3:23 (1 Macc. 8:27; ἐκ τῆς ψυχῆς ἀσπάζεσθαι, Xenophon, oec. 10, 4); ἐκ καθαρᾶς καρδίας, 1 Timothy 1:5; 2 Timothy 2:22; 1 Peter 1:22 (L T Tr WH omit; καθαρᾶς); ἐξ ὅλης τῆς καρδίας... ψυχῆς... διανοίας κτλ.

13. of that from which a rule of judging or acting is derived; after, according to (cf. Winer's Grammar, 368 (345)): κρίνειν ἐκ, Luke 19:22 (A. V. out of thine own mouth, etc.); Revelation 20:12 (Xenophon, Cyril 2, 2, 21 ἐκ τῶν ἔργων κρίνεσθαι); δικαιοῦν, καταδικάζειν, Matthew 12:37; ὀνομάζειν ἐκ, Ephesians 3:15 (Homer, Iliad 10, 68; Sophocles O. T. 1036, etc.); ἐκ τοῦ ἔχειν, according to your ability, 2 Corinthians 8:11.
III. By Attraction, common in classic Greek (cf. Winers Grammar, § 66, 6; (Buttmann, 377f (323))), two prepositions coalesce as it were into one, so that ἐκ seems to be used for ἐν, thus ἆραι τά ἐκ τῆς οἰκίας αὐτοῦ concisely for τά ἐν τῇ οἰκία αὐτοῦ ἐξ αὐτῆς, Matthew 24:17; πατήρ ἐξ οὐρανοῦ δώσει for πατήρ ἐν οὐρανῷ δώσει ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ, Luke 11:13; τήν ἐκ Λαοδικείας ἀπιστολην for τήν εἰς Λαοδικείας γεγραμμένην καί ἐκ Λαοδικείας κομιστεαν, Colossians 4:16 (2 Macc. 3:18). (To this construction some would refer ἐπιγνούς ἐν ἑαυτῷ τήν ἐξ αὐτοῦ δύναμιν ἐξελθοῦσαν, Mark 5:30, resolving τήν ἐν αὐτῷ δύναμιν ἐξελθοῦσαν ἐξ αὐτοῦ; cf. Field, Otium Norvicense, pars 3 at the passage)
IV. of Time (Winer's Grammar, 367 (344));
1. of the (temporal) point from which; Latin ex, inde a; from, from... on, since: ἐκ χρόνων ἱκανῶν, Luke 8:27 (R G Tr marginal reading); ἐκ γενετῆς, John 9:1 (Homer, Iliad 24, 535; Odyssey 18, 6); ἐκ κοιλίας μητρός (see κολια, 4); ἐκ νεότητός, Matthew 19:20 (R G); Mark 10:20; Luke 18:21; Acts 26:4 (Homer, Iliad 14, 86); ἐκ τοῦ αἰῶνος (see αἰών, 1 b.), John 9:32 (Aelian v. h. 6, 13; 12, 64 ἐξ αἰῶνος); ἐξ ἀρχῆς, John 6:64; John 16:4; ἐκ γενεῶν ἀρχαίων, Acts 15:21; ἐξ ἐτῶν ὀκτώ, Acts 9:33; ἐκ πολλῶν ἐτῶν, Acts 24:10; ἐξ αὐτῆς (namely, ὥρας), forthwith, instantly (see ἐξαυτῆς); ἐξ ἱκανοῦ ((namely, χρόνου); but L T Tr WH here ἐξ ἱκανῶν χρόνων), of a long time, Luke 23:8 (ἐκ πολλοῦ, Thucydides 1, 68; 2, 88); with an adverb: ἐκ παιδιόθεν, Mark 9:21 L T Tr WH (ἐκ πρωίθεν, 1 Macc. 10:80), cf. Winers Grammar, § 65, 2; (Buttmann, 70 (62)). Many interpreters translate ἐκ τούτου, John 6:66; John 19:12, from this time, but cf. II. 8 above.
2. of succession in time, a temporal series: ἐκ δευτέρου (as it were, proceeding from, beginning from the second), a second time (see δεύτερος); ἐκ τρίτου, Matthew 26:44 (L Tr marginal reading brackets ἐκ τρίτου); ἡμέραν ἐξ ἡμέρας (diem ex die, Cicero, ad Att. 7, 26; Caesar b. g. 1, 16, 4; diem de die, Livy 5, 48) from day to day, day after day, 2 Peter 2:8 (Genesis 39:10; Numbers 30:15; (2 Chronicles 24:11); Sir. 5:7; Euripides, Rhes. 437 (445) etc.; ἔτος ἐξ ἔτους, Leviticus 25:50; ἐνιαυτόν ἐξ ἐνιαυτοῦ, Deuteronomy 15:20).
V. Adverbial phrases (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 51, 1d.), in which lies the idea
1. of direction whence: ἐξ ἐναντίας, cf. I. 4 above.
2. of source: ἐκ συμφώνου, by consent, by agreement, 1 Corinthians 7:5; ἐξ ἀνάγκης of necessity, i. e. by compulsion, 2 Corinthians 9:7; necessarily, Hebrews 7:12.
3. of the measure or standard: ἐκ μέρους, so that each is a part of the whole, proportionately (R. V. marginal reading each in his part), 1 Corinthians 12:27, cf. Meyer at the passage; in part, partly, 1 Corinthians 13:9ff; ἐκ μέτρου equivalent to μετρίως, by measure, moderately, sparingly, John 3:34; ἐξ ἰσότητος, by equality, in equal proportion, 2 Corinthians 8:13 (14) (ἐξ ἴσου, Herodotus 7, 135); ἐκ περισσοῦ, beyond measure, Mark 6:51 (WH omit; Tr. brackets).
VI. In Composition ἐκ denotes
1. egress ἐκβαίνω, ἐξέρχομαι.

6. is equivalent to utterly, entirely, παντελῶς (cf. English out and out), denoting completion and perfection: ἐκπληρόω, ἐκτελέω. Cf. Fritzsche on Matthew, p. 120f.
