Latin ex cipio), to accept from, receive: τινά, simply, to give one access to oneself, Luke 9:11 L T Tr WH; Acts 28:30; with emphasis [cf. Tobit 7:17 and Fritzsche at the passage], to receive with joy, Luke 8:40; to receive to hospitality, Acts 21:17 L T Tr WH; to grant one access to oneself in the capacity in which he wishes to be regarded, e. g. as the messenger of others, Acts 15:4 (L T Tr WH παρεδέχθησαν); as a Christian, Acts 18:27; metaphorically, τί, to receive into the mind with assent: to approve, Acts 24:3; to believe, τὸν λόγον, Acts 2:41; (so in Greek writings especially Plato; cf. Ast, Lex. Plato, i., p. 232).
