STRONGS NT 1247: διακονέω
διακονέω, -ῶ; imperfect διηκόνουν (as if the verb were compounded of διά and ἀκονέω, for the rarer and earlier form ἐδιακόνουν, cf. Buttmann, 35 (31); Ph. Bttm. Ausf. Spr. § 86 Anm. 6; Krüger, § 28, 14, 13); [future διακονήσω]; 1 aorist διηκόνησα (for the earlier ἐδιακόνησα); passive, present participle διακονούμενος; 1 aorist infinitive διακονηθῆναι, participle διακονηθείς; (διάκονος, which see); in Greek writings from [Sophocles], Herodotus down; to be a servant, attendant, domestic; to serve, wait upon;
1. universally: [absolutely διακονῶν, Luke 22:26]; with the dative of person to minister to one; render ministering offices to: John 12:26; Acts 19:22; Philemon 1:13; passive to be served, ministered unto (Winers Grammar, § 39, 1; [Buttmann, 188 (163)]): Matthew 20:28; Mark 10:45.
2. Like the Latin ministrare, to wait at table and offer food and drink to the guests, [cf. Winer's Grammar, 593 (552)]: with the dative of person, Matthew 4:11; Matthew 8:15; Mark 1:13, 31; Luke 4:39; Luke 12:37; Luke 17:8; absolutely διακονῶν, Luke 22:27; so also of women preparing food, Luke 10:40; John 12:2; (Menander quoted in Athen. 6 c. 46, p. 245 c.; Anacreon 4, 6; others; passive διακονεῖσθαι ὑπό τινος, Diodorus 5, 28; Philo, vit. contempl. § 9).
3. to minister, i. e. supply food and the necessaries of life: with the dative of person, Matthew 25:44; Matthew 27:55; Mark 15:41; διηκόνουν αὐτοῖς ἐκ (Rec. ἀπὸ) τῶν ὑπαρχόντων αὐταῖς, Luke 8:3; to relieve one's necessities (e. g. by collecting alms): Romans 15:25; Hebrews 6:10 τραπέζαις, to provide, take care of, distribute, the things necessary to sustain life, Acts 6:2. absolutely, those are said διακονεῖν, i. e. to take care of the poor and the sick, who administer the office of deacon (see διάκονος, 2) in the Christian churches, to serve as deacons: 1 Timothy 3:10, 13; 1 Peter 4:11 [many take this last example in a general rather than an official sense].
4. with the accusative of the thing, to minister, i. e. attend to, anything, that may serve another's interests: χάρις διακονουμένη ὑφ’ ἡμῶν, 2 Corinthians 8:19; [ἁδροτής, ibid. 20]; ὅσα διηκόνησε, how many things I owe to his ministration, 2 Timothy 1:18; ἐπιστολὴ διακονηθεῖσα ὑφ’ ἡμῶν, an epistle written, as it were, by our serving as amanuenses, 2 Corinthians 3:3. with the accusative of the thing and the dative of person, to minister a thing unto one, to serve one with or by supplying anything: 1 Peter 1:12; τὶ εἰς ἑαυτούς, i. e. εἰς ἀλλήλους, to one another, for mutual use, 1 Peter 4:10.
