Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
1 Strong's Number: g1888 Greek: epautophoro

Act:

primarily signifies "caught in the act of theft" (epi, "upon," intensive, autos, "self," phor, "a thief"); then, "caught in the act" of any other crime, Jhn 8:4. In some texts the preposition epi is detached from the remainder of the adjective and appears as ep' autophoro.

2 Strong's Number: g1345 Greek: dikaioma

Act:

signifies "an act of righteousness, a concrete expression of righteousness," as in the RV of Rom 5:18, in reference to the Death of Christ; the AV wrongly renders it "the righteousness of One." The contrast is between the one trespass by Adam and the one act of Christ in His atoning Death. In Rev 15:4; 19:8, the word is used in the plural to signify, as in the RV, "righteous acts," respectively, of God and of the saints.
See JUDGMENT, JUSTIFICATION, ORDINANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS.

3 Strong's Number: g4238 Greek: prasso

Act:

"to do, to practice," is translated "act" in the RV of Act 17:7 (AV, "do").
See COMMIT, DO, EXACT, KEEP, REQUIRE, USE.

CONTENT DISCLAIMER:

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
