δοκέω dokéō, dok-eh'-o; a prolonged form of a primary verb, δόκω dókō dok'-o (used only in an alternate in certain tenses; compare the base of G1166) of the same meaning; to think; by implication, to seem (truthfully or uncertainly):—be accounted, (of own) please(-ure), be of reputation, seem (good), suppose, think, trow.
δοκέω, -ῶ; imperfect ἐδόκουν; 1 aorist ἔδοξα; (akin to δέχομαι or δέκομαι, whence δόκος an assumption, opinion [cf. Latin decus, decet, dignus; Curtius § 15; cf. his Das Verbum, i., pp. 376, 382]); [from Homer down];
1. to be of opinion, think, suppose: followed by an accusative with an infinitive, Mark 6:49 [R G L Tr]; 2 Corinthians 11:16; 1 Corinthians 12:23; with an infinitive relating to the same subject as that of δοκέω itself, Luke 8:18 ( δοκεῖ ἔχειν); Luke 24:37 (ἐδόκουν πνεῦμα θεωρεῖν); John 5:39; John 16:2; Acts 12:9; Acts 27:13; 1 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Corinthians 7:40; 1 Corinthians 8:2; 1 Corinthians 10:12; 1 Corinthians 14:37; Galatians 6:3; Philippians 3:4; James 1:26; μὴ δόξητε λέγειν ἐν ἑαυτοῖς do not suppose that ye may think, Matthew 3:9; cf. Fritzsche at the passage followed by ὅτι, Matthew 6:7; Matthew 26:53; [Mark 6:49 T WH]; Luke 12:51; Luke 13:2, 4; Luke 19:11; John 5:45; John 11:13, [John 11:31 T Tr WH]; John 13:29; 20:15; 1 Corinthians 4:9; 2 Corinthians 12:19; James 4:5, so used that the object is easily understood from the context: Matthew 24:44 ( ὥρᾳ οὐ δοκεῖτε υἱὸς τοῦ ἀνθρώπου ἔρχεται); Luke 12:40; Luke 17:9 [R G L brackets Tr marginal reading brackets]; forming a parenthesis in the midst of a question: πόσῳ, δοκεῖτε, χείρονος ἀξιωθήσεται τιμωρίας; Hebrews 10:29; (Aristophanes Aeharn. 12 πῶς τουτ’ ἔσεισέ μου, δοκεῖς, τὴν καρδίαν; Anacreon 40, 15 [i. e., 35 (33), 16] πόσον, δοκεῖς, πονουσιν, ἔρως, ὅσους σὺ βάλλεις;). [Synonym: see ἡγέομαι, at the end.]
2. intransitive, to seem, be accounted, reputed: Luke 10:36; Luke 22:24; Acts 17:18; Acts 25:27; 1 Corinthians 12:22; 2 Corinthians 10:9; Hebrews 12:11; ἔδοξα ἐμαυτῷ δεῖν πρᾶξαι, I seemed to myself, i. e. I thought, Acts 26:9 [cf. Buttmann, 111 (97)]; οἱ δοκοῦντες ἄρχειν those that are accounted to rule, who are recognized as rulers, Mark 10:42; οἱ δοκοῦντες εἶναί τι those who are reputed to be somewhat (of importance), and therefore have influence, Galatians 2:6, [Galatians 2:9], (Plato, Euthyd., p. 303 c.); simply, οἱ δοκοῦντες those highly esteemed, of repute, looked up to, influential, Galatians 2:2 (often in Greek writings as Euripides, Hec. 295, where cf. Schäfer; [cf. Winer's Grammar, § 45, 7]). By way of courtesy, things certain are sometimes said δοκεῖν, as in Hebrews 4:1 (cf. Cicero, offic. 3, 2, 6 ut tute tibi defuisse videare); 1 Corinthians 11:16 [but cf. Meyer at the passage]; cf. Winer's Grammar, § 65, 7 c.
3. impersonally, δοκεῖ μοι, it seems to me; i. e.
a. I think, judge: thus in questions, τί σοι (ὑμῖν) δοκεῖ; Matthew 17:25; Matthew 18:12; Matthew 21:28; Matthew 22:17, 42; Matthew 26:66; John 11:56; κατὰ τὸ δοκοῦν αὐτοῖς as seemed good to them, Hebrews 12:10, (Lucian, Tim. § 25, and παρὰ τὸ δοκοῦν ἡμῖν, Thucydides 1, 84).
b. ἔδοξέ μοι it seemed good to, pleased, me; I determined: followed by an infinitive, Luke 1:3; Acts 15:22, 25, 28, 34 Rec.; also often in Greek writings. Compare: εὐ-, συν-, εὐδοκέω.
[Synonyms: δοκεῖν2, φαίνεσθαι: φαίν. (primarily of luminous bodies) makes reference to the actual external appearance, generally correct but possibly deceptive; δοκ. refers to the subjective judgment, which may or may not conform to the fact. Hence such a combination as δοκεῖ φαίνεσθαι is no pleonasm. Cf. Trench § 80; Schmidt ch. 15.]
