V. enlarge); passive to increase: of bodily stature, ἐμεγαλύνθη τό παιδάριον, 1 Samuel 2:21; so in a figure, 2 Corinthians 10:15, of Paul, that his apostolic efficiency among the Corinthians may increase more and more and have more abundant results (others refer this to 2; see Meyer (edited by Heinrici) in the place cited). metaphorically, to make conspicious: Luke 1:58 (on which see ἔλεος, 2 a.).
