STRONGS NT 2026: ἐποικοδομέω
ἐποικοδομέω, -ῶ; 1 aorist ἐπῳκοδόμησα, and without augment ἐποικοδόμησα (1 Corinthians 3:14 T Tr WH; cf. Tdf.'s note on Acts 7:47, [see οἰκοδομέω]); passive, present ἐποικοδομοῦμαι; 1 aorist participle ἐποικοδομηθέντες; in the N. T. only in the figurative which likens a company of Christian believers to an edifice or temple; to build upon, build up (Vulg. superaedifico); absolute [like our English build up] viz. 'to finish the structure of which the foundation has already been laid,' i. e. in plain language, to give constant increase in Christian knowledge and in a life conformed thereto: Acts 20:32 (where L T Tr WH οἰκοδ. [Vulg. aedifico]); 1 Corinthians 3:10; (l Pet. 2:5 Tdf.); ἐπὶ τὸν θεμέλιον, 1 Corinthians 3:12; τί, 1 Corinthians 3:14; ἐν Χριστῷ, with the passive, in fellowship with Christ to grow in spiritual life, Colossians 2:7; ἐποικοδομηθ. ἐπὶ θεμελίῳ τῶν ἀποστόλων, on the foundation laid by the apostles, i. e. (dropping the figurative) gathered together into a church by the apostles' preaching of the gospel, Ephesians 2:20; ἐποικοδόμειν ἑαυτὸν τῇ πίστει, Jude 1:20, where the sense is, 'resting on your most holy faith as a foundation, make progress, rise like an edifice higher and higher.' (Thucydides, Xenophon, Plato, others.)
