1. intransitive, to dwell, settle;
a. properly: followed by ἐν with the dative of place, Luke 13:4 (Tr WH omit ἐν); Acts 1:20; Acts 5 (T WH marginal reading εἰς (see below)); Acts 7:2, 4, 48; 9:22; 11:29; 13:27; 17:24; Hebrews 11:9; Revelation 13:12; followed by εἰς (a pregnant construction; see εἰς, C. 2, p. 186a), Matthew 2:23; Matthew 4:13; Acts 7:4; ἐπί τῆς γῆς, Revelation 3:10; Revelation 6:10; Revelation 8:13; Revelation 11:10; Revelation 13:8, 14; Revelation 14:6 Rec.; Revelation 17:8 (Numbers 13:33; Numbers 14:14; Numbers 35:32, 34); ἐπί πᾶν τό πρόσωπον (παντός προσώπου L T Tr WH (cf. ἐπί, C. I. 1 a.)) τῆς γῆς, Acts 17:26; ὅπου, Revelation 2:13; so that ἐκεῖ must be added mentally, Acts 22:12; demons taking possession of the bodies of men are said κατοικεῖν ἐκεῖ, Matthew 12:45; Luke 11:26.

Genesis 37:1 κατῴκει δέ Ἰακώβ ἐν τῇ γῆ οὗ παρῴκησεν πατήρ αὐτοῦ, ἐν γῆ Χανάαν; Philo de sacrif. Ab. et Cain. § 10 γάρ τοῖς ἐγκυκλιοις μόνοις ἐπανεχων, παροικεῖ σοφία, οὐ κατοικεῖ. Cf. Lightfoot on Colossians 1:19 and on Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 1.]
