διαφέρω diaphérō, dee-af-er'-o; from G1223 and G5342; to bear through, i.e. (literally) transport; usually to bear apart, i.e. (objectively) to toss about (figuratively, report); subjectively, to "differ", or (by implication) surpass:—be better, carry, differ from, drive up and down, be (more) excellent, make matter, publish, be of more value.
STRONGS NT 1308: διαφέρω
διαφέρω; 2 aorist διήνεγκον [but the subjunctive 3 person singular διενέγκῃ (Mark 11:16), the only aorist form which occurs, can come as well from 1 aorist διήνεγκα; cf. Veitch, under the word φέρω, at the end]; passive [present διαφέρομαι]; imperfect διεφερόμην; [from Homer (h. Merc. 255), Pindar down];
1. to bear or carry through any place: σκεῦος διὰ τοῦ ἱεροῦ, Mark 11:16.
2. to carry different ways, i. e.,
a. transitive, to carry in different directions, to different places: thus, persons are said διαφέρεσθαι, who are carried hither and thither in a ship, driven to and fro, Acts 27:27 (Strabo 3, 2, 7, p. 144; σκάφος ὑπ’ ἐναντίων πνευμάτων διαφερόμενον, Philo, migr. Abr. § 27; Lucian, Hermot. 28; often in Plutarch); metaphorically, to spread abroad: διεφέρετο λόγος τοῦ κυρίου δἰ ὅλης τῆς χώρας, Acts 13:49, (ἀγγελιας, Lucian, dial. deor. 24, 1; φήμη διαφέρεται, Plutarch, mor., p. 163 d.).
b. intransitive (like the Latin differo) to differ: δοκιμάζειν τὰ διαφέροντα, to test, prove, the things that differ, i. e. to distinguish between good and evil, lawful and unlawful, Romans 2:18; Philippians 1:10 (διάκρισις καλοῦ τε καὶ κακοῦ, Hebrews 5:14); cf. Thol. Commentary on Romans, p. 111 edition 5.; Theophilus of Antioch ad Autol., p. 6, Otto edition δοκιμάζοντες τὰ διαφέροντα, ἤτοι φῶς, σκότος, λευκὸν, μέλαν κτλ.); [others, adopting a secondary sense of each verb in the above passages, translate (cf. A. V.) to approve the things that excel; see Meyer (yet, cf. Weiss edition) on Romans, the passage cited; Ellicott on Philippians, the passage cited]. διαφέρω τινός, to differ from one, i. e. to excel, surpass one: Matthew 6:26; Matthew 10:31; Matthew 12:12; Luke 12:7, 24 (often so in Attic authors); τινὸς ἔν τινι, 1 Corinthians 15:41; [τινὸς οὐδέν, Galatians 4:1].
c. impersonally, διαφέρει, it makes a difference, it matters, is of importance: οὐδέν μοι διαφέρει, it matters nothing to me, Galatians 2:6, (Plato, Prot., p. 316 b. ἡμῖν οὐδὲν διαφέρει, p. 358 e.; de rep. 1, p. 340 c.; Demosthenes 124, 3 (in Philippians 3, 50); Polybius 3, 21, 9; Aelian v. h. 1, 25; others; [cf. Lob. ad Phryn., p. 394; Wetstein (1752) on Galatians, the passage cited]).
