Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἑαυτοῦ heautoû, heh-ow-too'; from a reflexive pronoun otherwise obsolete and the genitive case (dative case or accusative case) of G846; him- (her-, it-, them-, also (in conjunction with the personal pronoun of the other persons) my-, thy-, our-, your-) self (selves), etc.:—alone, her (own, -self), (he) himself, his (own), itself, one (to) another, our (thine) own(-selves), + that she had, their (own, own selves), (of) them(-selves), they, thyself, you, your (own, own conceits, own selves, -selves).
STRONGS NT 1438: ἑαυτοῦ
ἑαυτοῦ, -ῆς, -οῦ, etc. or (contracted) αὑτοῦ, -ῆς, -οῦ (see p. 87); plural ἑαυτῶν; dative -οῖς, -αῖς, -οῖς, etc.; reflexive pronoun of the 3rd person. It is used:
1. of the 3rd person singular and plural, to denote that the agent and the person acted on are the same; as, σώζειν ἑαυτόν, Matthew 27:42; Mark 15:31; Luke 23:35; ὑψοῦν ἑαυτόν, Matthew 23:12, etc. ἑαυτῷ, ἑαυτόν are also often added to middle verbs: διεμερίσαντο ἑαυτοῖς, John 19:24 (Xenophon, mem. 1, 6, 13 ποιεῖσθαι ἑαυτῷ φίλον); cf. Winers Grammar, § 38, 6; [Buttmann, § 135, 6]. Of the phrases into which this pronoun enters we notice the following: ἀφ’ ἑαυτοῦ, see ἀπό, II. 2 d. aa.; δἰ ἑαυτοῦ, of itself, i. e. in its own nature, Romans 14:14 [Tr L text read αὐτ.]; ἐν ἑαυτῷ, see in διαλογίζεσθαι, λέγειν, εἰπεῖν. εἰς ἑαυτὸν ἔρχεσθαι to come to oneself, to a better mind, Luke 15:17 (Diodorus 13, 95). καθ’ ἑαυτόν, by oneself, alone: Acts 28:16; James 2:17. παρ’ ἑαυτῷ, by him, i. e. at his home, 1 Corinthians 16:2 (Xenophon, mem. 3, 13, 3). πρὸς ἑαυτόν, to himself i. e. to his home, Luke 24:12 [R G; T omits, WH (but with αὑτ.) reject, L Tr (but the latter with αὐτ.) brackets, the verse]; John 20:10 [T Tr αὐτ. (see αὑτοῦ)]; with [cf. our to] himself, i. e. in his own mind, προσεύχεσθαι, Luke 18:11 [Tdf. omits], (2 Macc. 11:13); in the genitive, joined with a noun, it has the force of a possessive pronoun, as τοὺς ἑαυτῶν νεκρούς: Matthew 8:22; Luke 9:60.
2. It serves as reflexive also to the 1st and 2nd person, as often in classic Greek, when no ambiguity is thereby occasioned; thus, ἐν ἑαυτοῖς equivalent to ἐν ἡμῖν αὐτοῖς, Romans 8:23; ἑαυτούς equivalent to ἡμᾶς αὐτούς, 1 Corinthians 11:31; ἀφ’ ἑαυτοῦ equivalent to ἀπὸ σεαυτοῦ [read by L Tr WH], John 18:34; ἑαυτόν equivalent to σεαυτόν [read by L T Tr WH], Romans 13:9; ἑαυτοῖς for ὑμῖν αὐτοῖς, Matthew 23:31, etc.; cf. Matthiae, § 489 II.; Winers Grammar, § 22, 5; [Buttmann, § 127, 15].
3. It is used frequently in the plural for the reciprocal pronoun ἀλλήλων, ἀλλήλοις, ἀλλήλους, reciprocally, mutually, one another: Matthew 16:7; Matthew 21:38; Mark 10:26 [Tr marginal reading WH αὐτόν]; Mark 16:3; Luke 20:5; Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13, 16; 1 Peter 4:8, 10; see Matthiae § 489 III.; Kühner, ii., p. 497f; Bernhardy (1829), p. 273; [Bp. Lightfoot on Colossians 3:13].
