STRONGS NT 1987: ἐπίσταμαι
ἐπίσταμαι (seems to be the Ionic form of the middle of ἐφίστημι. Isocrates, Aristotle, others, also use ἐπίστῆσαι τὴν διάνοιαν, τὸν νοῦν, ἑαυτόν for to put one's attention on, fix one's thoughts on; indeed, the simple ἐπιστῆσαι is used in the same sense, by an ellipsis analogous to that of τὸν νοῦν with the verbs προσέχειν, ἐπέχειν, and of τὴν ὄψιν with προσβάλλειν; see Lobeck ad Phryn., p. 281f. Hence, ἐπίσταμαι is properly, to turn oneself or one's mind to, put one's thought upon a thing); from Homer down; Sept. chiefly for יָדַע; (cf. German sich worauf verstehen);
a. to be acquainted with: τί, Acts 18:25; James 4:14; Jude 1:10; τινά, Acts 19:15; with reference to what is said or is to be interpreted, to understand: Mark 14:68; 1 Timothy 6:4.
b. to know: περί τινος, Acts 26:26; followed by an accusative with a participle Acts 24:10 [Winers Grammar, 346 (324); Buttmann, 301 (258)]; followed by ὅτι, Acts 15:7; Acts 19:25; Acts 22:19; followed by ὡς, Acts 10:28; by πῶς, Acts 20:18; by ποῦ, Hebrews 11:8. [Synonym: see γινώσκω.]
