Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
δεικνύω deiknýō, dike-noo'-o; a prolonged form of an obsolete primary of the same meaning; to show (literally or figuratively):—shew.
δεικνύω (δεικνύειν, Matthew 16:21; δεικνύεις, John 2:18; τοῦ δεικνύοντος, Revelation 22:8 [not Tdf.]) and δείκνυμι (1 Corinthians 12:31; Matthew 4:8; John 5:20; cf. Buttmann, 45 (39)); future δείξω; 1 aorist ἔδειξα; 1 aorist passive participle δειχθείς (Hebrews 8:5); the Sept. mostly for הִרְאָה; to show, exhibit;
1. properly, to show, i. e. expose to the eyes: τινί τι, Matthew 4:8; Luke 4:5; Luke 20:24 (for Rec. ἐπιδείξ.); Luke 22:12; 24:40 [R G L, but T omits; Tr brackets WH reject the verse]; Mark 14:15; John 20:20; Acts 7:3; ὁδόν τινι, metaphorically, in which one ought to go, i. e. to teach one what he ought to do, 1 Corinthians 12:31; κατὰ τὸν τύπον τὸν δειχθέντα σοι, Hebrews 8:5; ἑαυτὸν δεικνύναι τινί to expose oneself to the view of one, Matthew 8:4; Mark 1:44; Luke 5:14; δεῖξον ἡμῖν τὸν πατέρα render the Father visible to us, John 14:8f; of things presented to one in a vision: τινί τι, Revelation 17:1; Revelation 21:9; Revelation 22:1, 8; δεῖξαί τινι, δεῖ γενέσθαι, Revelation 1:1; Revelation 4:1; Revelation 22:6. to show, equivalent to to bring to pass, produce what can be seen (German sehen lassen); of miracles performed in presence of others to be seen by them: σημεῖον, John 2:18, (Baruch 6 [i. e., epistle of Jeremiah] 66; σῆμα, Homer, Odyssey 3, 174; Iliad 13, 244); ἔργα ἔκ τινος, works done by the aid of one, John 10:32; τὴν ἐπιφάνειαν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ, spoken of God, as the author of Christ's visible return, 1 Timothy 6:15; ἔργα δεικνύειν is used differently in John 5:20, to show works to one for him to do.
2. metaphorically,
a. with the accusative of the thing, to give the evidence or proof of a thing: πίστιν, James 2:18; τὶ ἔκ τινος, as τὴν πίστιν ἐκ τῶν ἔργων, ibid.; τὰ ἔργα ἐκ τῆς καλῆς ἀναστροφῆς, James 3:13.
b. to show by words, to teach: followed by ὅτι, Matthew 16:21 (διδάσκειν in Mark 8:31 for δεικνύειν); followed by an infinitive Acts 10:28. [Compare: ἀνα-, ἀπο-, ἐν-, ἐπι-, ὑποδείκνυμι.]
