Fritzsche on Romans, ii., p. 370, who treats of the word fully and with his usual learning (cf. Winers Grammar, 101 (95))); the Sept. mostly for רָצָה; among Greek writers used especially by Polybius, Diodorus, and Dionysius Halicarnassus;
1. as in secular authors, followed by an infinitive, it seems good to one, is one's good pleasure; to think it good, choose, determine, decide: Luke 12:32; 1 Corinthians 1:21; Galatians 1:15; once followed by the accusative with an infinitive, Colossians 1:19 (cf. Lightfoot; Winers Grammar, § 64, 3 b.; Buttmann, § 129, 16); with the included idea of kindness accompanying the decision, Romans 15:26f; to do willingly what is signified by the infinitive, to be ready to, 1 Thessalonians 2:8; to prefer, choose rather (A. V. we thought it good), 1 Thessalonians 3:1; Sir. 25:16; more fully μᾶλλον εὐδοκῶ, 2 Corinthians 5:8.
2. by a usage peculiar to Biblical writers, followed by ἐν τίνι, to be well pleased with, take pleasure in, a person or thing (cf. Winers Grammar, 38, 232 (218); Buttmann, 185 (160)): Matthew 3:17; Matthew 12:18 Tr; Matthew 17:5; Mark 1:11; Luke 3:22 (on the tense in the preceding passage cf. Winers Grammar, 278 (261); Buttmann, 198 (171)); 1 Corinthians 10:5; 2 Corinthians 12:10; 2 Thessalonians 2:12 R G L brackets; Hebrews 10:38 (בְּ חָפֵץ, 2 Samuel 22:20; Malachi 2:17; בְּ רָצָה, Psalm 149:4). followed by εἰς τινα (i. e. when directing the mind, turning the thoughts, unto), to be favorably inclined toward one (cf. Winers Grammar, § 31, 5; Buttmann, § 133, 23): Matthew 12:18 R G; 2 Peter 1:17; with a simple accusative of person to be favorable to, take pleasure in (cf. Winer's Grammar, 222 (209)): Matthew 12:18 L T WH; with the accusative of the thing: Hebrews 10:6, 8 (Psalm 50:18, 21 (Ps. 51:18,21); Psalm 84:2 (Ps. 85:2); Genesis 33:10; Leviticus 26:34, 41); as in Greek writings also, with the dative of the person or thing with which one is well pleased: 2 Thessalonians 2:12 T Tr WH (see above); 1 Macc. 1:43; 1 Esdr. 4:39. (Compare: συνευδοκέω.)
