STRONGS NT 473: ἀντί
ἀντί [before ὧν, ἀνθ’; elsewhere neglecting elision] a preposition followed by the genitive (answering to the Latin ante and the German prefixes ant-, ent-), in the use of which the N. T. writings coincide with the Greek (Winer's Grammar, 364 (341));
1. properly, it seems to have signified over against, opposite to, before, in a local sense (Buttmann Gram., p. 412; [cf. Curtius, § 204]). Hence,
2. indicating exchange, succession, for, instead of, in place of (something).
a. universally, instead of: ἀντὶ ἰχθύος ὄφιν, Luke 11:11; ἀντὶ περιβολαίου to serve as a covering, 1 Corinthians 11:15; ἀντὶ τοῦ λέγειν, James 4:15 (ἀντὶ τοῦ with the infinitive often in Greek writings [Winers Grammar, 329 (309); Buttmann, 263 (226)]).
b. of that for which anything is given, received, endured: Matthew 5:38; Matthew 17:27 (to release me and thyself from obligation); Hebrews 12:2 (to obtain the joy; cf. Bleek, Lünemann, or Delitzsch at the passage); of the price of sale (or purchase): Hebrews 12:16; λύτρον ἀντὶ πολλῶν, Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45. Then
c. of recompense: κακὸν ἀντὶ κακοῦ ἀποδιδόναι, Romans 12:17; 1 Thessalonians 5:15; 1 Peter 3:9, (Wis. 11:16 (15)). ἀνθ’ ὧν equivalent to ἀντὶ τούτων, ὅτι for that, because: Luke 1:20; Luke 19:44; Acts 12:23; 2 Thessalonians 2:10 (also in secular authors [examples in Wetstein on Luke 1:20]; cf. Herm. ad Vig., p. 710; [Winers Grammar, 364 (342), cf. 162 (153); Buttmann, 105 (92)]; Hebrew אֲשֶׁר תַּחַת, Deuteronomy 21:14; 2 Kings 22:17).
d. of the cause: ἀνθ’ ὧν wherefore, Luke 12:3; ἀντὶ τούτου for this cause, Ephesians 5:31.
e. of succession to the place of another: Ἀρχ. βασιλεύει ἀντὶ Ἡρώδου in place of Herod, Matthew 2:22 (1 Kings 11:44; Herodotus 1, 108; Xenophon, an. 1, 1, 4). χάριν ἀντὶ χάριτος grace in the place of grace, grace succeeding grace perpetually, i. e. the richest abundance of grace, John 1:16 (Theognis, verse 344 ἀντ’ ἀνιῶν ἀνίας [yet cf. the context verse 342 (vss. 780 and 778, Welcker edition); more appropriate are the references to Philo, i. 254, Mang. edition (de poster. Caini § 43, vol. ii. 39, Richter edition), and Chrysostom de sacerdot. l. 6 c. 13 § 622]).
3. As a prefix, it denotes
a. opposite, over against: ἀντιπέραν, ἀντιπαρέρχεσθαι.
b. the mutual efficiency of two: ἀντιβάλλειν, ἀντικαλεῖν, ἀντιλοιδορεῖν.
c. requital: ἀντιμισθία, ἀνταποδίδωμι.
d. hostile opposition: ἀντίχριστος.
e. official substitution, instead of: ἀνθύπατος.
