STRONGS NT 3191: μελετάω
μελετάω, μελέτω; 1 aorist ἐμελέτησα; (from μελέτη care, practice); especially frequent in Greek writings from Sophocles and Thucydides down; the Sept. chiefly for הָגָה; to care for, attend to carefully, practise: τί, 1 Timothy 4:15 (R. V. be diligent in); to meditate equivalent to to devise, contrive: Acts 4:25 from Psalm 2:1; used by the Greeks of the meditative pondering and the practice of orators and rhetoricians, as μελετᾶν τήν ἀπολογίαν ὑπέρ ἑαυτῶν, Demosthenes, p. 1129, 9 (cf. Passow, under the word, d. (Liddell and Scott, under the word, II. 2 and III. 4 b.)), which usage seems to have been in the writer's mind in Mark 13:11 (R L brackets Compare: προμελετάω).
