STRONGS NT 4238: πράσσω
πράσσω and (once viz. Acts 17:7 R G) πράττω; future πράξω; 1 aorist ἔπραξα; perfect πέπραχά; perfect passive participle πεπραγμενος; from Homer down; the Sept. several times for עָשָׂה and פָּעַל; to do, practise, effect, Latinagere (but ποιεῖν to make, Latinfacere; (see ποιέω, at the end)); i. e.:
1. to exercise, practise, be busy with, carry on: τά περίεργα, Acts 19:19; τά ἰδίᾳ, to mind one's own affairs, 1 Thessalonians 4:11 (τά ἑαυτοῦ (Sophocles Electr. 678); Xenophon, mem. 2, 9, 1; Plato, Phaedr., p. 247a.; Demosthenes, p. 150, 21; others); used of performing the duties of an office, 1 Corinthians 9:17. to undertake to do, μηδέν προπετές, Acts 19:36.
2. to accomplish, to perform: πεπραγμένον ἐστιν, has been accomplished, has taken place, Acts 26:26; εἴτε ἀγαθόν, εἴτε κακόν, 2 Corinthians 5:10; ἀγαθόν φαῦλον (κακόν), Romans 9:11 (δίκαια ἄδικα, Plato, Apology, p. 28 b.); ἄξια τῆς μετανοίας ἔργα, Acts 26:20; add, Romans 7:15, 19; Philippians 4:9; μόνον, to do, i. e. keep the law, Romans 2:25; of unworthy acts, to commit, perpetrate (less frequent so in Greek writings, as πολλά καί ἀνόσια, Xenophon, symp. 8, 22; with them ποιεῖν ((see Schmidt, Syn., chapter 23, 11, 3; Liddell and Scott, under the word, B.)) is more common in reference to bad conduct; hence, τούς ἐπισταμένους μέν δεῖ πράττειν, ποιοῦντας δέ ταναντια, Xenophon, mem. 3, 9, 4), Acts 26:9; 2 Corinthians 12:21; τό ἔργον τοῦτο, this (criminal) deed, 1 Corinthians 5:2 T WH Tr marginal reading; add, Luke 22:23; Acts 3:17; Acts 5:35; Romans 7:19; τά τοιαῦτα, such nameless iniquities, Romans 1:32 (where ποιεῖν and πράσσειν are used indiscriminately (but cf. Meyer)); Romans 2:1-3; Galatians 5:21; (φαῦλα, John 3:20; John 5:29; τί ἄξιον θανάτου, Luke 23:15; Acts 25:11, 25; Acts 26:31; τό κακόν, Romans 7:19; Romans 13:4; ἄτοπον, Luke 23:41; τί τίνι κακόν, to bring evil upon one, Acts 16:28.
3. to manage public affairs, transact public business (Xenophon, Demosthenes, Plutarch); from this use has come a sense met with from Pindar, Aeschylus, Herodotus down, viz. to exact tribute, revenue, debts: Luke 3:13 (here R. V. extort); τό ἀργύριον, Luke 19:23 (soagere in Latin, cf. the commentators on Suetonius, Vesp. 1; (cf. Winer's Grammar, § 42, 1 a.)).
4. intransitive, to act (see εὖ, p. 256a): ἀπέναντι τίνος, contrary to a thing, Acts 17:7.
5. from Aeschylus and Herodotus down reflexively, me habere: τί πράσσω, how I do, the state of my affairs, Ephesians 6:21; εὖ πράξετε (see εὖ), Acts 15:29 (cf. Buttmann, 300 (258)).
