Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
καμμύω kammýō, kam-moo'-o; from a compound of G2596 and the base of G3466; to shut down, i.e. close the eyes:—close.
STRONGS NT 2576: καμμύω
καμμύω, a form which passed over from the epic (cf. Homer batrach. 191) and common language (Apoll. Dysc. synt. 323, 22; 326, 9) into the Alexandrian and decaying Greek; condemned by Phryn. (as below); derived by syncope and assimilation from καταμύω (which the earlier and more elegant Greeks use) (cf. καμμέν, καμμονη, κάμμορος, from κατά μέν, καταμονη, καταμορος, cf. Alexander Buttmann (1873) Gram. § 117, 2 Anm. 2; Ausf. Gram. ii., p. 373; Fischer, De vitiis lexamples N. T., p. 678f; Sturz, De dial. Maced. etc., p. 173f; Lob. ad Phryn., p. 339f; Schäfer ad Lamb. Bos, p. 368; (cf. Buttmann, 62 (55); Winer's Grammar, 24, 46)): 1 aorist ἐκάμμυσα; to shut the eyes, close the eyes: often with τούς ὀφθαλμούς added; so Matthew 13:15 and Acts 28:27 (from the Sept. Isaiah 6:10, for הָשַׁע, i. e. to besmear), in both passages the phrase designates the inflexible pertinacity and obstinacy of the Jews in their opposition to the gospel. (Isaiah 29:10; Lamentations 3:43; καμμύειν τό τῆς ψυχῆς ὄμμα, Philo de somn. i. § 26.)
