STRONGS G1846:
ἐξορύσσω: 1 aorist participle ἐξορύξαντες; from Herodotus down;
1. to dig out: τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς (properly, to pluck out the eyes; so Judges 16:21 [Alex.]; 1 Samuel 11:2; Herodotus 8, 116; Josephus, Antiquities 6, 5, 1; Lucian, dial. deor. 1, 1; others) καὶ διδόναι τινί, metaphorically, to renounce the most precious things for another's advantage, Galatians 4:15 (similar expressions see in Terence, adelph. 4, 5, 67; Horace sat. 2, 5, 35; [Wetstein at the passage]); in opposition to a very few interpretaters who, assuming that Paul suffered from a weakness of the eyes, understand the words literally, "Ye would have plucked out your sound eyes and have put them into me," see Meyer at the passage; [cf. references under the word σκόλοψ, at the end].
2. to dig through: τὴν στέγην, Mark 2:4.
