STRONGS NT 5048: τελειόω
τελειόω (in secular authors also τελεόω, which Herodotus uses everywhere (and which is the prevailing form in Attic prose (Liddell and Scott)); other writers use both forms indifferently), τελείω: 1 aorist ετελείωσα; perfect τετελείωκα; passive (or middle), present τελειοῦμαι; perfect τετελείωμαι; 1 aorist ἐτελειωθην; (τέλειος); from Herodotus, Sophocles, Thucydides, and Plato down; equivalent to τέλειον ποιῶ, to make perfect or complete;

Buttmann, 38 (33)) τελειοῦμαι, I finish complete, what was given me to do, Luke 13:32 (some (so A. V.) take it here as passive, I am perfected (understanding it of his death; cf.

3. to bring to the end (goal) proposed: οὐδέν, Hebrews 7:19; τινα, (to perfect or consummate) i. e. to raise to the state befitting him: so of God exalting Jesus to the state of heavenly majesty, Hebrews 2:10; in the passive, Hebrews 5:9; Hebrews 7:28; to raise to the state of heavenly blessedness those who put their faith in the expiatory death of Christ, passive, Hebrews 11:40; Hebrews 12:23 ((Act. Petr. et Paul. § 88, Tdf. edition, p. 39; Act. Barnab. § 9, id., p. 68; cf. 'Teaching' etc. 16, 2 [ET]); with μαρτυρίῳ added, of the death of the apost. Paul, Eusebius, h. e. 2, 22, 2 (cf.
