STRONGS NT 1439: ἐάω
ἐάω, -ῶ; imperfect εἴων; future ἐάσω; 1 aorist εἴασα; from Homer down;
1. to allow, permit, let: followed by the infinitive, οὐκ ἂν εἴασε διορυγῆναι [T Tr WH -χθῆναι], Matthew 24:43; by the accusative of the person and the infinitive, Luke 4:41 (οὐκ εἴα αὐτὰ λαλεῖν); Acts 14:16; Acts 23:32; Acts 27:32; Acts 28:4; 1 Corinthians 10:13; by the accusative alone, when the infinitive is easily supplied from the context, οὐκ εἴασεν αὐτούς, namely, πορευθῆναι, Acts 16:7; οὐκ εἴων αὐτόν, namely, εἰσελθεῖν, Acts 19:30; [cf. Winer's Grammar, 476 (444)].
2. τινά, to suffer one to do what he wishes, not to restrain, to let alone: Revelation 2:20 Rec.; Acts 5:38 R G; ἐᾶτε namely, αὐτούς, is spoken by Christ to the apostles, meaning, 'do not resist them, let them alone,' (the following ἕως τούτου is to be separated from what precedes; [others connect the words closely, and render 'suffer them to go even to this extreme'; but cf. Meyer at the passage, Weiss edition]), Luke 22:51.
3. To give up, let go, leave: τὰς ἀγκύρας... εἴων εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν, they let down into the sea [i. e., abandoned; cf. B. D. American edition, p. 3009a bottom], Acts 27:40. [Compare: προσεάω.]
