Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
γεύομαι geúomai, ghyoo'-om-ahee; a primary verb; to taste; by implication, to eat; figuratively, to experience (good or ill):—eat, taste.
γεύω: [cf. Latin gusto, German kosten; Curtius, § 131]; to cause to taste, to give one a taste of, τινά (Genesis 25:30). In the N. T. only the middle γεύομαι: future γεύσομαι; 1 aorist ἐγευσάμην;
1. to taste, try the flavor of: Matthew 27:34; contrary to better Greek usage (cf. Winers Grammar, § 30, 7 c. [and p. 36; Anthol. Pal. 6, 120]) with the accusative of the object: John 2:9.
2. to taste, i. e. perceive the flavor of, partake of, enjoy: τινος, Luke 14:24 (γεύσεταί μου τοῦ δείπνου, i. e. shall partake of my banquet); hence, as in Greek writings from Homer down, equivalent to to feel, make trial of, experience: τινός, Hebrews 6:4; ῤῆμα θεοῦ, Hebrews 6:5, (τῆς γνώσεως, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 36, 2). as in Chaldean, Syriac, and rabbinical writers, γεύεσθαι τοῦ θανάτου [Winer's Grammar, 33 (32)]: Matthew 16:28; Mark 9:1; Luke 9:27; John 8:52; Hebrews 2:9; [cf. Wetstein on Matthew, the passage cited; Meyer on John, the passage cited; Bleek, Lünem., Alford on Hebrews, the passage cited], followed by ὅτι: 1 Peter 2:3 (Psalm 33:9 (Ps. 34:9)).
3. to take food, eat: absolutely, Acts 10:10; Acts 20:11; cf. Kypke, Observations, ii., p. 47; to take nourishment, eat — [but substantially as above], with the genitive μηδενός, Acts 23:14; with the ellipsis of a genitive denoting unlawful food, Colossians 2:21.
