Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἀρνέομαι arnéomai, ar-neh'-om-ahee; perhaps from G1 (as a negative particle) and the middle voice of G4483; to contradict, i.e. disavow, reject, abnegate:—deny, refuse.
ἀρνέομαι, -οῦμαι; future ἀρνήσομαι; imperfect ὴρνούμην; 1 aorist ἠρνησάμην (rare in Attic, where generally ἠρνήθην cf. Matthew i. p. 538 [better Veitch under the word]); perfect ἤρνημαι; a deponent verb [(from Homer down)] signifying
1. to deny, i. e. εἰπεῖν... οὐκ [to say... not, contradict]: Mark 14:70; Matthew 26:70; John 1:20; John 18:25, John 18:27; Luke 8:45; Acts 4:16; followed by ὅτι οὐ instead of simple ὅτι, in order to make the negation more strong and explicit: Matthew 26:72; 1 John 2:22; (on the same use in Greek writings cf. Kühner ii. p. 761; [Jelf ii. 450; Winer's Grammer § 65, 2 β.; Buttman 355 (305)]).
2. to deny, with an accusative of the person, in various senses:
a. ἀρν. Ἰησοῦν is used of follower of Jesus who, for fear of death or persecution, deny that Jesus is their master, and desert his cause, [to disown]: Matthew 10:33; Luke 12:9; [John 13:38 L text T Tr WH]; 2 Timothy 2:12, (ἀρν. τὸ ὄνομα αὐτοῦ, Revelation 3:8 means the same); and on the other hand, of Jesus, denying that one is his follower: Matthew 10:33; 2 Timothy 2:12.
b. ἀρν. God and Christ, is used of those who by cherishing and disseminating pernicious opinions and immorality are adjudged to have apostatized from God and Christ: 1 John 2:22 (cf. 1 John 4:2; 2 John 1:7-11); Jude 1:4; 2 Peter 2:1.
c. ἀρν. ἑαυτόν to deny himself, is used in two senses,
α. to disregard his own interests: Luke 9:23 [R WH marginal reading ἀπαρν.]; cf. ἀπαρνέομαι.
β. to prove false to himself, act entirely unlike himself: 2 Timothy 2:13.
3. to deny i. e. abnegate, abjure; τί, to renounce a thing, forsake it: τὴν ἀσέβειαν κ. τὰς ἐπιθυμίας, Titus 2:12; by act to show estrangement from a thing: τὴν πίστιν, 1 Timothy 5:8; Revelation 2:13; τὴν δύναμιν τῆς εὐσεβείας, 2 Timothy 3:5.
4. not to accept, to reject, refuse, something offered: τινά, Acts 3:14; Acts 7:35; with an infinitive indicating the thing, Hebrews 11:24.
[Compare: ἀπαρνέομαι.]
