Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀπολύω apolýō, ap-ol-oo'-o; from G575 and G3089; to free fully, i.e. (literally) relieve, release, dismiss (reflexively, depart), or (figuratively) let die, pardon or (specially) divorce:—(let) depart, dismiss, divorce, forgive, let go, loose, put (send) away, release, set at liberty.
ἀπολύω; [imperfect ἀπέλυον]; future ἀπολύσω; 1 aorist ἀπέλυσα; passive, perfect ἀπολέλυμαι; 1 aorist ἀπελύθην; [future ἀπολυθήσομαι]; imperfect middle ἀπελυόμην (Acts 28:25); used in the N. T. only in the historical books and in Hebrews 13:23; to loose from, sever by loosening, undo [see ἀπό, V.];
1. to set free: τινά τινος (so in Greek writings even from Homer down), to liberate one from a thing (as from a bond), Luke 13:12 (ἀπολέλυσαι [thou hast been loosed i. e.] be thou free from [cf. Winer's Grammar, § 40, 4] τῆς ἀσθενείας [L T ἀπὸ τ. ἀσθ.]).
2. to let go, dismiss (to detain no longer); τινά,
a. a suppliant to whom liberty to depart is given by a decisive answer: Matthew 15:23; Luke 2:29 ('me whom thou hadst determined to keep on earth until I had seen the salvation prepared for Israel, cf. Luke 2:26, thou art now dismissing with my wish accomplished, and this dismission is at the same time dismission also from life' — in reference to which ἀπολύειν is used in Numbers 20:29; Tobit 3:6; [cf. Genesis 15:2; 2 Macc. 7:9; Plutarch, consol. ad Apoll. § 13 cf. 11 at the end]); [Acts 23:22].
b. to bid depart, send away: Matthew 14:15, 22; Matthew 15:32, 39; Mark 6:36, 45; Mark 8:3, 9; Luke 8:38; Luke 9:12; Luke 14:4; Acts 13:3; Acts 19:41 (τὴν ἐκκλησίαν); passive Acts 15:30, 33.
3. to let go free, to release;
a. a captive, i. e. to loose his bonds and bid him depart, to give him liberty to depart: Luke 22:68 [R G L Tr in brackets]; Luke 23:22; John 19:10; Acts 16:35; Acts 26:32 (ἀπολελύσθαι ἐδύνατο [might have been set at liberty, cf. Buttmann, 217 (187), § 139, 27 c.; Winers Grammar, 305 (286) i. e.] might be free; perfect as in Luke 13:12 [see 1 above, and Winer's Grammar, 334 (313)]); Acts 28:18; Hebrews 13:23; ἀπολ. τινά τινι, to release one to one, grant him his liberty: Matthew 27:15, 17, 21, 26; Mark 15:6, 9, 11, 15; [Luke 23:16], Luke 23:17 [R L in brackets], Luke 23:18, 20, 25; [John 18:39].
b. to acquit one accused of a crime and set him at liberty: John 19:12; Acts 3:13.
c. indulgently to grant a prisoner leave to depart: Acts 4:21, 23; Acts 5:40; Acts 17:9.
d. to release a debtor, i. e. not to press one's claim against him, to remit his debt: Matthew 18:27; metaphorically, to pardon another his offences against me: Luke 6:37 (τῆς ἁμαρτίας ἀπολύεσθαι, 2 Macc. 12:45).
4. used of divorce, as ἀπολύω τὴν γυναῖκα to dismiss from the house, to repudiate: Matthew 1:19; Matthew 5:31; Matthew 19:3, 7-9; Mark 10:2, 4, 11; Luke 16:18; [1 Esdr. 9:36]; and improperly a wife deserting her husband is said τὸν ἄνδρα ἀπολύειν in Mark 10:12 [cf. Diodorus 12, 18] (unless, as is more probable, Mark, contrary to historic accuracy [yet cf. Josephus, Antiquities 15, 7, 10], makes Jesus speak in accordance with Greek and Roman usage, according to which wives also repudiated their husbands [references in Meyer, at the passage]); (cf. שִׁלַּח, Jeremiah 3:8; Deuteronomy 21:14; Deuteronomy 22:19, 29).
5. Middle ἀπολύομαι, properly, to send oneself away; to depart [Winer's Grammar, 253 (238)]: Acts 28:25 (returned home; Exodus 33:11).
